Update: Life and Books (Aug 2020)

Technically I'm a couple days early since August hasn't quite ended yet, but eh, I don't think anything noteworthy is gonna happen within the next day or two. Time is a blur this year anyway. Everything is starting to blend together. What even happened in August? Who knows! (I don't mean to make light of the terrible things that have been happening, but it's just a constant barrage, sometimes I...

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books/Series I Read in 2019 + Some Non-Bookish Things

I know I say this every year, but this really is one of my favorite posts of the year. What book blogger doesn't love talking about their favorite books??? I was afraid I might not find as many great books as usual this year since I wasn't able to read as many, but it turns out I went for quality over quantity because I still found so many amazing ones. So here are my top ten top eleven favorites...
 
Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read in 2019

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read in 2019

Characters are the heart of books for me, so, as usual at this time every year, it's time for me to talk about my favorites! The way authors can create entirely new people and make them feel real is always incredible, but there are some characters that stand out more than others, whether it's because they're so relatable or unique or interesting or sweet, and these are my favorites (which may...

Update: Life and Books (June 2019)

June is over! (Well, I just realized this is posting on the 30th, but close enough.) I don't know why I said that so excitedly. I don't have anything against June or any special affinity for July. But anyway, I did more art! I was unexpectedly inspired by the #Junicorn tag on Twitter and ended up drawing two half-unicorns. I think my dancing half-unicorn (with Vitiligo, in case anyone doesn't...

Bookish News: May/June 2019 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Releases to Get Excited About

We're really getting into the thick of it now with new releases, peeps. The next few months have sooooooooo many amazing-sounding sci-fi/fantasy books coming out! Instead of struggling to find enough books for each post, I'll be struggling to decide how many to include so that these posts don't get too long. But I'm not complaining, too many great books to be excited about is a good problem to...

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books I Read in 2018 (+ Some Non-Bookish Things)

I've already shared with you all my favorite covers and favorite characters from books I read in 2018, so that means... it's finally time to share my favorite books! I don't know why I keep calling these posts "Top Ten" when I never manage to stop at just ten. My blog is just full of lies. It sounds good as a post title though, you know? Anyway, I'm excited, as I always am for this post, because...

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2018

I feel like this is my most anticipated post every year. I mean, I don't know what you all anticipate, but *I* anticipate it. Book covers are my jam. Little mini works of art! So I love looking back through what I've read and finding the most gorgeous ones. I don't know if book covers have been getting prettier, or if I've just been more drawn to pretty ones since I started blogging, but wow,...

Update: Life and Books (11/4/18)

Another month gone by! Did everyone have a good Halloween? I dressed up as a person sitting at home reading and blogging. Because I was a person sitting at home reading and blogging :-P Unfortunately my dental situation is still a mess. No dentist/specialist seems to know anything, I might need implants now (if I'm even a candidate for that), and I can't even find a doctor in my area who a)...
