Bookish Musings: 3 Book & Song Match-Ups (4) – The Simon Snow + FUN. Edition

Bookish Musings: 3 Book & Song Match-Ups (4) – The Simon Snow + FUN. Edition

As you might already know, if you've visited before, I love pairing books and music! Which is why I do these posts. But this one is a bit unique in that I chose three books from the same series and three songs from the same artist. The same artist thing actually wasn't intentional, or at least, not my original plan. But it just so happened that the three FUN. songs I know all seemed perfect, so I...
 
Bookish Musings: The Audiobook Tag (AKA I Like Audiobooks Now!)

Bookish Musings: The Audiobook Tag (AKA I Like Audiobooks Now!)

So I have this kind of accidental series going on here on my blog about my experience with audiobooks. It started with "Audiobooks, Yea or Nay?" in which I talked all about why I didn't like or listen to audiobooks. Two years later, I wrote a post titled "I'm Trying Audiobooks... and It's Not Going Well." That one's pretty self-explanatory, yes? Well, it's now been over three years since that...
 
Bookish Musings: How Well Do You Know My Reading Habits? (A Quiz to Celebrate My 6th Blogiversary)

Bookish Musings: How Well Do You Know My Reading Habits? (A Quiz to Celebrate My 6th Blogiversary)

In honor of my sixth blogiversary (which was on the 9th), I decided to just have a little fun. So I've made a ten-question quiz about my books and reading habits! I decided not to use one of those quiz makers because 1) it's a lot of work, and 2) I don't know how accessible they are for screen readers. So you don't have to keep track of your results, but you can still guess and see if you got the...
 
Bookish Musings: Supernatural Creatures Ranked by How Much I’d Like to Bone Them

Bookish Musings: Supernatural Creatures Ranked by How Much I’d Like to Bone Them

My blog is going in a really weird direction I had not expected when I created it. But this is what I do now! I rank things! Well, I ranked two things (sci-f worlds and fantasy worlds), so this is obviously the logical next step. I'm gonna rank supernatural creatures by how fuckable they are! It'll be great. Trust me. There are about a million different types of supernaturals out there, so I...
 
Bookish Musings: Fantasy Worlds Ranked by How Much I’d Want to Live in Them

Bookish Musings: Fantasy Worlds Ranked by How Much I’d Want to Live in Them

I recently did a ranking of types of sci-fi worlds based on how much I'd want to live in them, so I figured, why not do fantasy worlds too? Fantasy is my jam! This list was surprisingly difficult to put together because it's not about specific worlds, but rather subgenres and the types of worlds they're about, and there's so much variation and overlap. I did my best to come up with ten options...
 
Bookish Musings: 3 Book & Song Match-Ups (3)

Bookish Musings: 3 Book & Song Match-Ups (3)

Yep, it's another book and song match-up post! What can I say? I like doing these. Books and music go great together. They've both got the meanings and the feels and the vibes. Once again, I happen to think these are all great books and great songs! The first song is a bit older, I have memories of it from when I was about sixteen. I really wanna use more songs that aren't super recent in these...
 
Bookish Musings: Opening Lines (2)

Bookish Musings: Opening Lines (2)

I did a post with opening lines before, and I'm doing it again because I just think it's really interesting to look at the opening lines of books! I don't know about you all, but I tend to just kind of gloss over the first line, in a way, and immediately forget it by the time I'm a few sentences deep. I don't really stop to pay attention to just the opening line specifically when I'm starting...
 
Bookish Musings: How to Listen to eBooks with TTS (and Why It’s Great!)

Bookish Musings: How to Listen to eBooks with TTS (and Why It’s Great!)

About a year and a half ago, I developed this nerve problem in my head, and ever since then, I haven't been able to read much with my eyes without getting headaches. But the thing is, I still love books! Sure, I can read small amounts and take painkillers, but I could never read 100+ books a year like I normally do. Audiobooks are a great option, and thankfully I have access to many through my...
 
Bookish Musings: Sci-Fi Worlds Ranked by How Much I’d Want to Live in Them

Bookish Musings: Sci-Fi Worlds Ranked by How Much I’d Want to Live in Them

I feel like I kind of neglect science fiction books on this blog, but I do read sci-fi books sometimes! So I thought it would be fun to take ten different types of sci-fi worlds I'm familiar with and rank them based entirely on my own personal opinion about how much I'd want to live in them. Then you can tell me how wrong I am in the comments and how you would rank these instead...
