Bookish Tag Post: You’re Not Good Enough Tag

This sounds like it's going to be a really sad or mean kinda tag, right? But don't you fret, it's actually really fun. The way it works is, you take 30 characters from books you've read, you choose two to use for each question, then you decide which is the better of the two for the answer. I tried to keep this as random as possible, so I chose the books mostly randomly by using my Goodreads...
 

Book Review: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, & Jack Thorne

It's not easy being Harry Potter's son, at least not for Albus, who doesn't fit the mold everyone was expecting him too. But it's not easy being Harry Potter either, nor is it easy being a father. When dark magic may be lurking once again, friends, family, and old enemies will have to figure out how to unite and work...
 

Bookish Musings: Thoughts on the Harry Potter Series (Part 2)

I recently reread the Harry Potter series and decided to do some discussion posts about my thoughts on it! There was too much for one post, so I split it into two parts. Part 1 was about general things and the younger/student characters. Part 2 (this post) is about the adults! *Note: I haven't seen the movies, so this is based entirely on the books. I have no idea what differences the movies...
 

Bookish Musings: Thoughts on the Harry Potter Series (Part 1)

I recently reread the Harry Potter series and shared a lot of thoughts on Goodreads and Twitter as I was reading, but those were mostly ponderings about how the HP world works, and I wanted to talk about some other things, and talk a little more in-depth, here. Especially since I have a massive book hangover and all I want to do right now is read and/or think about Harry Potter. This isn't a...
 

Update: Life and Books (3/11/18)

I still haven't been feeling great. I still have eye strain. I still don't know what, if anything in particular, is causing the recent issues. I'm stressed about a lot of health-related stuff right now. I don't want to get into that. Sorry if I'm a little behind on responding to comments and visiting your blogs. In better news, I went through all the shoes in my old closet---all the boxes way...
 

Update: Life and Books (2/25/18)

I considered not posting today because I've not been feeling great, but this post was already mostly finished. Anyway, it turns out the eye strain I've had is merely a symptom of something else since I've been having a lot of problems. The problem is, I haven't been able to pinpoint the actual cause. Usually it's a new food or vitamin or something like that, but it could be literally almost...
 

Bookish Tag Post: The “Longest Book” Tag

Don't worry, this isn't a book tag that's really long, it's just a tag about long books ;-) In fact, it's actually a really quick and simple tag! Here's what you do: 1) Make a list of the 5 longest books you've ever read 2) Select 2 of the longest books on your TBR 3) Discuss 4) Tag others Ta da! That's it. I was tagged by Wren @ For the Love of Books, the original is from Bewitchingly...
 

Bookish Tag Post: Bump in the Night Book Tag

I stumbled upon this tag somewhere (I don't even remember where), and it seemed both fun and perfect for the month of October! I didn't actually set out to do a bunch of Halloween-themed posts this month, but I follow try to follow my blogging whims, so here we are. The original can be found at the ColdTeaAndCrumbs booktube channel, and, as usual, I tag everyone who wants to do the tag...
 

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...
 

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!...
