Bookish Musings: Why I Love Graphic Novels & Comics (Sometimes Even More than Regular Books)

When I first started book blogging in 2015, reading a story in comic form never even crossed my mind as a thing to do. This is probably going to sound horribly judgmental or maybe just ignorant, but when I thought of comics, I thought of superheroes and Sunday newspapers, and that was about it. That was all I knew of. But then I started hearing the term graphic novel, which somehow sounded a...
 

Bookish Tag Post: The Book Blogger Memory Challenge Tag

I just randomly searched the web for book tags one day and found this one at The Book Nut. The original doesn't seem to be around anymore. It seemed like an interesting one since it's different. Here's how it works: You must answer these questions without looking anything up on the internet and without looking at your bookshelves! That's it. Depending on your memory and books you've...
 

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books I Read in 2017

Yay, it's finally that time when I get to rave and fangirl about my favorite books of the year! Am I the only one who spends pretty much the entire year looking forward to this post? Anyway, as per usual, I made the graphic before the post, and, well, I have 11 instead of 10. (Well, technically I have 22 because of series.) But the more the merrier, right? Definitely. More books always = more...
 

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read in 2017

This post was harder than I thought it would be. Not because I didn't read about any great characters but because---and this sounds weird to say---I don't know what I should consider my "favorite" anymore. Characters who are complex and superbly well-written? Characters who are likeable people? Characters who make me feel for them? Characters I want to date or be friends with? So I decided to...
 

The Weekly Update: 9/3/17

Whew! It has been over a month since I have done a Weekly Update, and I have so much stuff to share all in one post now that it's a little overwhelming. I'm still not sure I'll be doing these every week though. I might switch to every other week or monthly. I'll figure something out eventually....
 

Bookish Tag Post: OMG This Song Book Tag

I sometimes share songs in my weekly updates, but other than that, I don't talk about music much. Which is a little odd considering I even have a page with book playlists I've created, and I love listening to music while I read and blog. I guess maybe I'm not the biggest music lover there ever was, but I do still love it! So this seemed like a fun tag :-) I found it over at Lindsey Reads, and...
 

Graphic Novel Review: Chester 5000 XYV Vol. 2 by Jess Fink

Before he created Chester 5000, Robert worked at a foundry with George, and the two of them became fast friends while working together on new inventions. But between work stress, dangerous inventions, sexuality questions, overbearing orphanage mothers, and greedy bosses, what will happen to George and Isabelle's new marriage and Robert and Priscilla's struggling one? (This volume covers events...
 

Graphic Novel Review: Chester 5000 XYV Vol. 1 by Jess Fink

Priscilla is feeling neglected because her inventor husband, Robert, doesn't seem to have time for her or to be interested in sex anymore. In order to satisfy her, Robert creates Chester 5000, a fully functioning sex robot! Priscilla is hesitant at first but, upon getting to know Chester, finds that he's sweet, caring, and everything she could ever want in a man. But what will happen when Robert...
 

The Weekly Update: 4/16/17

Happy Easter to everyone who is celebrating, and Happy Sunday to everyone who is not :-) I have no idea if other people will be around blogging today, but I'm here anyway! Oh, and of course the guys across the hall have an Easter door decoration lol. Also, remember I showed you all the picture of the cat that loves belly rubs? Well I was talking to the woman downstairs who takes care of most of...
 

The Weekly Update: 2/26/17

The guys across the hall have St. Patrick's Day decorations on their door! I didn't even know St. Patrick's decorations existed?! Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's, and now St. Patrick's. These have got to be the most festive people I've ever seen! Also, last week I showed you all the hand turkey I drew, and I had this whole part where I talked about how I used to be into art and was trying to...
