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...
 

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: 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...

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Zombies

So I seem to be on a bit of a zombie kick lately, reading and adding to my TBR quite a few books that have zombies as main characters or love interests, and even some that have the more stereotypical, shambling, post-apocalyptic kind of zombies. I've never been a huge fan of zombies, even though I have started giving their books more of a chance, but that doesn't mean I can't be a fan of their...
 

Graphic Novel Review: Art Ops Vol. 1 by Shaun Simon, Michael Allred, & Matt Brundage

Reggie has never wanted anything to do with his mother's secret organization or the art they protect, but his graffiti arm, given to him on the night he first discovered art is actually alive, is a constant reminder and a constant burden. But when all the Art Ops agents disappear and art starts wreaking havoc, it's up to Reggie, a comic book superhero, an 80s music video star, and a teenager to...
 

The Weekly Update: 5/15/16

MY LAPTOP IS STILL BROKEN. I just... *sigh* How hard is it, really, to CHECK that the computer is working before sending it back? I mean, the second I took it out of the box, it was already turning itself on and off like it's been doing since the first time I sent it in. Literally, before I even had the chance to hit the power button myself, which means it had to have been doing that since they...
 

The Weekly Update: 1/31/16

Wow, I have definitely gotten off to a great bookish/bloggy start this year! I finally started taking my blog more seriously and getting the hang of things this past month, and I'm happy about that. Normally I just talk about the week, but with this post falling exactly on January 31st, I couldn't resist doing a bit of an update about the whole month :-) So what are all these good things you ask?...
