The Weekly Update: 6/25/17

Let's see, what did I do this week... I rented some movies! I rarely watch movies, but it seemed like a good way to rest my arms. I watched Captain Fantastic because I thought it would be fun, quirky, and touching, I got a Little Miss Sunshine vibe from the cover, but boy was I wrong. I nearly cried like six times. I was heavy and unsettling in some ways and emotional but touching in the end....
 

Bookish Musings: Ten Awesomely Interesting Book Titles (2)

Everyone get excited because it's time for another post about weird, interesting, funny book titles! Ok, fine, maybe it's not that exciting, but it's a fun post at least, and fun is always a good reason to get excited :-D Anyway, as someone who spends a lot of time on Goodreads and the ebook section of Amazon and NetGalley and basically every other bookish site out there, I inevitably come across...
 

The Weekly Update: 4/23/17

My tennis elbow is hurting too much to ignore and I've actually been trying to rest it the past couple days, so I don't know how much commenting I'll be able to do today. I might have to leave a quick, generic comment sometimes just to let you know I stopped by or only comment every other Sunday or something because Sundays are the hardest on my arm, but I don't want you all to think I don't care...
 

Bookish Tag Post: NSFW Book Tag

I stumbled upon this book tag on YouTube and it seemed fun, plus I have been slowly losing my filter in regards to all things book-related, so I figured why not? But in case you don't know, NSFW stands for "Not Safe For Work." And, as the title suggests, I will be talking about some inappropriate things! (What fun would it be if I didn't?) So if the topic of sexy times and/or cannibalism in books...
 

Bookish Tag Post: My Harry Potter Life Tag

So I saw this tag over at A Dance With Books, and it looked like so much fun I couldn't resist. It was originally created by The Writing Hufflepuff, and what you do is choose four books, then you use those books to answer the questions. (I recommend choosing books before you even look at the questions, that's what I did, and I think it's more fun that way!) Anyway, here's my Harry Potter life!...
 

Personal Tag Post: The Halloween Tag

I wanted to do a Halloween-related post every Monday this month, but I decided to go with something not bookish today because I always end up talking about the same books in those types of posts. So this is just about Halloween in general and will maybe give you all a chance to get to know some really random and insignificant things about me since I have included lots of stories from my life...
 

Bookish Musings: 3 Things Every Character Inexplicably Knows How to Do (But I Don’t)

There are certain things that seem to pop up in so many books, and even movies and TV shows, and every time they do, I find myself wondering, well, 1) why they pop up so often, but mostly 2) how the characters know how to do these things in the first place. So I decided it's high time I took to the internet and find out whether it's just me who lacks the worldly experience and unflinching...
 

The Weekly Update: 7/24/16 + Kristen’s Theory of Electronics

Alright, guys, I'm going on a bit of a tangent today because I didn't want to make a whole post just for this considering it's not even remotely related to books and have instead decided to just include it in this post. So... I have a new theory about electronics. It seems like the worse I treat my electronics, the longer they last, so my theory is that you have to toughen them up when they're...
 

Bookish Musings: Wow, People in Books Sure Are Observant

I've been doing a lot of serious discussion posts lately, so I thought I'd do one a little more light and fun this week. So... Have you ever thought about how observant characters are? I mean, for everywhere they go they seem to notice all the different paintings on the walls, the types of plants, the pattern in the carpeting, and for every person they meet, they seem to notice everything from...
