I've written and re-written this post in my head. There are so many words, but in the end, this is what it comes down to: Black Lives Matter. Read Black authors. Non-fiction AND fiction. There is much to learn, yes, but also much Black joy and Black art to support and love. There are so… Continue reading Intentionally Decolonizing My Reading
Alright y'all - Harry Potter. I have had a book blog for over 3 years and have yet to write a single full post about Harry Potter. UNACCEPTABLE. That changes now. Get ready for a quick overview of my life with HP and, also, one of the cutest stories ever about me and my husband!… Continue reading Harry Potter and…Me!
Well, here goes: my third year of blogging in stats. (If you're interested, you can check out my 2018 and 2017 stats too.) I love making these pie charts - it's so satisfying to see what the year looks like in numbers, all the individual books I've read coming together into a greater overall picture.… Continue reading My Book Blogging Journey: Year Three
I was looking back for my previous "favorite books of the year" posts before writing this one, just to see, and realized that apparently I didn't even start it until last year (2018)! So I guess I won't be trying to post any "best of the decade" lists, because I just know, without anything to… Continue reading Top Ten Reads of 2019!
First of all, Happy New Year's Eve! New Year's is my favorite holiday for many reasons, but the feeling of starting fresh is definitely high on the list. I'm really excited for that this year, as 2019 was a tough one for us. Onwards and, hopefully, upwards - amirite?! Anyways, last year I created my… Continue reading Reading Women Challenge 2020
I started this wrap-up post last year, after my very first year of blogging, and loved seeing all my stats visually. Plus, it gave me real guidance on what diversity "holes" I needed to fill in for the following year's reading. So, here I am again, sharing some fun and colorful pie charts of my… Continue reading My Book Blogging Journey: Year Two
Happy New Year Everybody! I almost made this post on time, but I struggled SO hard narrowing my Top Ten list down to an actual ten books (I was stuck at fifteen and kept going back and forth). But I'm here to say that I'd rather be a day late than not be happy with… Continue reading Top Ten Reads of 2018!
Just One More Pa(i)ge Reading Challenge 2019 I have seen about 30 book challenges for the new year so far. A lot of them look really good (like The Reading Women Challenge). And I know I *should* participate in a couple of them (like Beat the Backlist, for example, which I did at least partially… Continue reading Just One More Pa(i)ge Reading Challenge 2019
I subscribe to Unbound Worlds, a blog/newsletter situation that is all about science fiction and fantasy worlds. I love all the book recommendations, author interviews, and lists (who doesn't love lists!) that they send out. The most recent email newsletter from them included the following list: The 100 Best Fantasy Novels of All Time (list… Continue reading What I’ve Read: 100 Best Fantasy Novels of All Time
This is my second Top Ten Tuesday participating post (the previous one was for Valentine's Day back in February). And though I'm getting better at it - at least this one was posted on the right day of the week - I'm still sliding in late, just under the wire. In any case, I was… Continue reading Favorite Reads of the Year (so far): Halfway Through 2018 TTT
