Bookish Musings: My 2016 Bookish Stats

It is December 31st today (well, technically it's not the 31st yet as I write this intro, and it might not be the 31st anymore on the day you're reading this, but it will be the 31st when the post goes up!), and I figured what better way to end 2016 than with a look at my bookish stats from the year?! (Clearly I have a very exciting life.) Seriously though, I've never looked back at any bookish...
 

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books I Read in 2016

Yay, it's time for one of my favorite posts of the whole year because this is the post in which I get to talk about ALL the books that I loved most all at once! It's a post full of happiness and good feelings, and I get to reminisce about the highlights of my reading year. What more can any book blogger ask for? Anyway, I debated how to do this. I mean, there are standalones, there are complete...
 

Bookish Musings: 2016 Bookish Goals End-of-the-Year Update

At the beginning of the year, I wrote a post about what my bookish goals were for the year. It was actually the first time, believe it or not, I ever had any bookish goals. Really they were more like guidelines, things I was excited about, things I wanted to read more about, types of books I wanted to try for the first time, stuff like that. But anyway, it seemed like it'd be a good idea to look...
 

The Weekly Update: 12/25/16

Merry Christmas, everyone :-) Or, if you don't celebrate or are not celebrating for any reason, happy Sunday :-) I know it's Christmas, but I still wanted to post because I love this blogging community and still wanted to say hi to everyone. I will keep it brief though since most of you are probably busy. So first, just for funzies, I will share with you all one of my favorite Family Guy scenes...
 

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Female Characters from Books I Read in 2016

Yay, time for another character post! I do so love these, guys. Except, unfortunately, I didn't seem to find very many female characters I loved this year. I really don't know why I struggle so much to find female characters I like. Well, I suppose part of the problem could be that I read a lot of M/M fiction and therefore read about females less, proportionally speaking, but never fear, I still...
 

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2016

So you know how I usually choose ten covers/series for my Cover Characteristic posts? Well... Hahahahahahahahaha---Not happening this time. I don't know what happened this year, if it was just coincidence or if I started judging books more by their covers and letting myself be drawn in by all the pretty ones, but I read SO MANY books with gorgeous covers this year, and I want to share them all....
 

The Weekly Update: 12/18/16

I have one word for you this week: ants. Here's three more words: really stupid ants. Because here's the thing, I keep my apartment clean for this exact reason. I don't want to deal with bugs. And because there's no food sitting around, there's not even a trail of ants I can spray or anything normal like that. Instead it's just a bunch ants aimlessly wandering around the middle of my living room,...

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Male Characters from Books I Read in 2016

Alright, peeps. It's that time of year again when I tell you all about my favorite characters! I know this probably won't be my most popular post, but I love it nonetheless because characters are my lifeblood. They are what gives me the emotion and the feels when I read, and that's what I love most in books. I might still sometimes give a book a high rating even without great characters if it's...
