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
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 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
This is the first time I've participated in Top Ten Tuesday (TTT) and I've already managed to mess it up by posting on Wednesday. Haha. But I wanted to do something special for Valentine's Day, something more than a normal review, and the prompt for this week was just perfect: Love Freebie. So, pretty much,… Continue reading My Favorite Bookish Relationships: Valentine’s Day Belated TTT
I have been looking for a book challenge to do for 2018. I am just getting into the idea of yearly challenges (I just sort of maybe did my first one this year) and am trying to find a good one for me. When I read about Beat the Backlist on Bluestocking Bookworm’s blog, it… Continue reading Beat the Backlist 2018
I had a very exhausting (but very fun) weekend. One of my oldest/best friends gets married at the end of the month and I was at her bachelorette party. With a record-setting escape room escape (my first time doing one - it was so intricate and intense!), a tacky lights 6k in the snow (and I… Continue reading Reading Challenge Wrap-Up 2017
