Book Review: Scrudge & Barley, Inc. by John Inman

Book Review: The Three Sisters (The Krampus Chronicles Book 1) by Sonia Halbach (Repost)

But when the two of them find a secret passageway in the...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Snow

Snow just seems like the perfect topic for December, yes? Plus it turns out it makes for some very pretty and magical covers. Plus some of my favorite covers have snow on them. Also, I don't get snow where I live, so snowy covers have this almost fantastical quality to me (whether the books are fantasy or not) and really transport me in a way that other covers don't, so I like them. So basically,...
 

The Weekly Update: 12/4/16

So... I might have carpal tunnel in my right wrist from using the computer too much. Or maybe tendonitis. Or some other joint-related thing? Whatever it is, it's something. And this is a problem, to say the least, because not only do I need to use the computer to blog (which, along with reading, keeps me sane), I also need it in order to work. So I'm really hoping that whatever it is will just...

Blogging Organization: Scheduling and Keeping Track of Blog Posts with a Spreadsheet

As some of you may already know, I can be quite the organization fiend when I want to be one. And when it comes to my blog, I do want to be one. It makes everything so much simpler and less stressful when I don't have to remember or keep track of things in my head, don't have to search through the list of drafts I have in Wordpress just to figure out what posts I have, etc. And that is why...
 

The Weekly Update: 11/27/16

So did everyone have a good Thanksgiving? And did anyone go out on Black Friday? I take that back, if you did you probably won't be able to answer my question since you've probably been trampled and lost some fingers and therefore cannot type (unless you use your nose or elbow, but that's harder than it sounds). I've actually still not been feeling well. I'm just so overexhausted and run down....
