Bookish Musings: How Well Do You Know My Reading Habits? (A Quiz to Celebrate My 6th Blogiversary)

Bookish Musings: How Well Do You Know My Reading Habits? (A Quiz to Celebrate My 6th Blogiversary)

In honor of my sixth blogiversary (which was on the 9th), I decided to just have a little fun. So I've made a ten-question quiz about my books and reading habits! I decided not to use one of those quiz makers because 1) it's a lot of work, and 2) I don't know how accessible they are for screen readers. So you don't have to keep track of your results, but you can still guess and see if you got the...
 
Bookish Musings: Supernatural Creatures Ranked by How Much I’d Like to Bone Them

Bookish Musings: Supernatural Creatures Ranked by How Much I’d Like to Bone Them

My blog is going in a really weird direction I had not expected when I created it. But this is what I do now! I rank things! Well, I ranked two things (sci-f worlds and fantasy worlds), so this is obviously the logical next step. I'm gonna rank supernatural creatures by how fuckable they are! It'll be great. Trust me. There are about a million different types of supernaturals out there, so...
 
Bookish Musings: Fantasy Worlds Ranked by How Much I’d Want to Live in Them

Bookish Musings: Fantasy Worlds Ranked by How Much I’d Want to Live in Them

I recently did a ranking of types of sci-fi worlds based on how much I'd want to live in them, so I figured, why not do fantasy worlds too? Fantasy is my jam! This list was surprisingly difficult to put together because it's not about specific worlds, but rather subgenres and the types of worlds they're about, and there's so much variation and overlap. I did my best to come up with ten options...
 
Bookish Musings: 3 Book & Song Match-Ups (3)

Bookish Musings: 3 Book & Song Match-Ups (3)

Yep, it's another book and song match-up post! What can I say? I like doing these. Books and music go great together. They've both got the meanings and the feels and the vibes. Once again, I happen to think these are all great books and great songs! The first song is a bit older, I have memories of it from when I was about sixteen. I really wanna use more songs that aren't super recent in...
 
Bookish Musings: Opening Lines (2)

Bookish Musings: Opening Lines (2)

I did a post with opening lines before, and I'm doing it again because I just think it's really interesting to look at the opening lines of books! I don't know about you all, but I tend to just kind of gloss over the first line, in a way, and immediately forget it by the time I'm a few sentences deep. I don't really stop to pay attention to just the opening line specifically when I'm starting...
 
Bookish Musings: How to Listen to eBooks with TTS (and Why It’s Great!)

Bookish Musings: How to Listen to eBooks with TTS (and Why It’s Great!)

About a year and a half ago, I developed this nerve problem in my head, and ever since then, I haven't been able to read much with my eyes without getting headaches. But the thing is, I still love books! Sure, I can read small amounts and take painkillers, but I could never read 100+ books a year like I normally do. Audiobooks are a great option, and thankfully I have access to many through my...
 
Bookish Musings: Sci-Fi Worlds Ranked by How Much I’d Want to Live in Them

Bookish Musings: Sci-Fi Worlds Ranked by How Much I’d Want to Live in Them

I feel like I kind of neglect science fiction books on this blog, but I do read sci-fi books sometimes! So I thought it would be fun to take ten different types of sci-fi worlds I'm familiar with and rank them based entirely on my own personal opinion about how much I'd want to live in them. Then you can tell me how wrong I am in the comments and how you would rank these instead...
 
Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books/Series I Read in 2020 + Some Non-Bookish Things

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books/Series I Read in 2020 + Some Non-Bookish Things

*Announcer voice blasts out over the speakers*: And now... it's time for the main event! The cream of the crop! The cherry on top! The one, the only, the top ten books of the year post! RAAAAAAHHHHHHHH (Just humor me and imagine crowd sounds here.) Well that was fun! Maybe I should intro all my blog posts with an announcer... Anyway, this has been a weird year. Perhaps that explains why...
 
Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read in 2020

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read in 2020

Next up for my end of the year posts is characters! The lifeblood of books! I just thought it was interesting to note that four of these are main characters, one is a love interest, three are side characters, and two are kind of cheating since I chose all the main characters. I could ramble some for the intro, but eh, no point in wasting time, let's just get to all of the characters I loved...
 
Bookish Musings: I Want Reading to Stop Being Stressful and Start Being Fun Again

Bookish Musings: I Want Reading to Stop Being Stressful and Start Being Fun Again

When you get involved in the online book community, it's easy to get mired in this feeling of competitiveness, productivity, and efficiency. Not only are you made aware of so many more books that sound amazing, there's so much focus on reading more, reading faster, reading everything. There are goals and challenges and, on occasion, people being shamed for reading a certain way. I don't know...
