Bookish Musings: High School in Real Life vs. High School in Books

If you read my reviews, you've probably noticed that I don't read many YA books set in high schools. And the reason I am so hesitant to read them anymore is because I can't stand all the typical high school tropes. And it's not just books that do this, it's movies and shows too. I've joked before about how I must've had a different high school experience than most authors, but it has reached the...

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring New York City

When I was a kid, I always wanted to go to New York. I don't know if I'd ever actually want to live there, but I finally got to go there when I was 16 or so, for two days on a family vacation, and yes, I loved it just as much as I thought I would. Unfortunately that's the only time I've ever been. Anyway, New York, it turns out, is an awesome topic for book covers! And, because I'm a...
 

The Weekly Update: 3/12/17

Another week with no news. Since I'm going to be moving in a couple months, I'm just trying to figure out stuff that I need to figure out and getting anything that I don't actually need right now packed up ahead of time on days that I have the energy. Which is no day, to be honest, because I've been even more exhausted than usual lately. I've also had a really hard time concentrating, so I've...

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Elephants

A lot of the covers I found this week aren't my usual type of covers, and I'm pretty sure quite a few of them aren't sci-fi/fantasy, but elephants is just an awesome topic! So I wanted to join in anyway. You know, I always say I have a story for everything, but it turns out I do not have any stories about elephants. I mean, I've read some interesting/funny/awesome things involving elephants in...
 

The Weekly Update: 3/5/17

I love Google. I mean, obviously I love Google, we all love Google, but have you ever tried searching for a song you didn't know, like, any words to? It's astonishing the things you can find thanks to Google. Seriously, I had a song stuck in my head and wanted to listen to it, but I didn't actually know the words, so I typed "muse gravity yeah yeah yeah" into the search bar, and, believe it or...
