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...

The Weekly Update: 6/26/16

I got rid of headache problems I had a year or two ago and have since only taken Tylenol a handful of times, but this week I had to take it twice :-/ One of the times was because I tried a different air filter for my AC, and that turned out to be a huge mistake. I have screwy sinuses, and it dried out the air too much or something, and my whole face and...

That's why I've tweaked it! I've come to realize there are certain things that usually make me immediately start to love a character. I'm not talking the typical personality traits like brooding or sarcastic---those are...
