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...

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2020

It's the end of another year, and that means it's time to do all my bookish end of the year posts! Yay! I don't do a lot of posts about book covers anymore, but I do so love a pretty cover. Good artwork and/or good, cohesive design *chef's kiss* So anyway, here are all my favorite covers from the books I read in 2020! *I did my best to find cover artists, but I just couldn't find the...

Update: Life and Books (July 2020)

I don't feel like talking about everything horrible happening in the world. I need a break. And luckily I somehow have lots of other stuff to talk about this month! I've been tentatively going by Kit on Twitter lately to see if I like it because I want something more gender neutral. (Though I found out Kristen is apparently a male name in Scandinavian countries, which is cool, if that's true.)...

Update: Life and Books (May/June 2020) + I Finally Made Some Art This Year!

It's been two months since I did one of these posts, and I still have nothing to talk about. No significant changes to my life or my health or my family or anything. Though the US has been a mess lately, hasn't it? Just wear masks, please. And stay home if you can. And remember that Black Lives Matter. And remember that trans women are women and trans men are men, regardless of what a certain...

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2016

So you know how I usually choose ten covers/series for my Cover Characteristic posts? Well... Hahahahahahahahaha---Not happening this time. I don't know what happened this year, if it was just coincidence or if I started judging books more by their covers and letting myself be drawn in by all the pretty ones, but I read SO MANY books with gorgeous covers this year, and I want to share them all....

The Weekly Update: 12/18/16

I have one word for you this week: ants. Here's three more words: really stupid ants. Because here's the thing, I keep my apartment clean for this exact reason. I don't want to deal with bugs. And because there's no food sitting around, there's not even a trail of ants I can spray or anything normal like that. Instead it's just a bunch ants aimlessly wandering around the middle of my living room,...

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Male Characters from Books I Read in 2016

Alright, peeps. It's that time of year again when I tell you all about my favorite characters! I know this probably won't be my most popular post, but I love it nonetheless because characters are my lifeblood. They are what gives me the emotion and the feels when I read, and that's what I love most in books. I might still sometimes give a book a high rating even without great characters if it's...
