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: Top Ten Books/Series I Read in 2020 + Some Non-Bookish Things

*Announcer voice blasts out over the speakers*: And now... it's time for the main event! The cream of the crop! The cherry on top! The one, the only, the top ten books of the year post! RAAAAAAHHHHHHHH (Just humor me and imagine crowd sounds here.) Well that was fun! Maybe I should intro all my blog posts with an announcer... Anyway, this has been a weird year. Perhaps that explains why it was...
 
Book Recs: My 5 Favorite Books in 5 Years of Blogging

Book Recs: My 5 Favorite Books in 5 Years of Blogging

My blog is five years old! (Well, a couple days ago, if we're being exact.) And although lately I haven't been blogging as much as I used to, I still love books, and I figured a fun way to celebrate my blogoversary would be to talk about my favorite books and series. I decided to stick with finished series, because that made it less complicated, but it's also all the more reason to give some of...
 
Update: Life and Books (May/June 2020) + I Finally Made Some Art This Year!

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...

Bookish Tag Post: Olympic Book Tag

Bookish Tag Post: Olympic Book Tag

I wasn't planning on doing this tag since I've never actually done any tags before, but I figured this would be my one and only chance since the Olympics don't last very long and won't be around for another four years... So here I am! Doing my first tag. I have to admit I don't watch many of the sports, but, since I used to be a gymnast, I am always super excited about the summer Olympics just...
 
Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Traits that Make Me Love a Character

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Traits that Make Me Love a Character

I have no idea what characters other people like or dislike, and I mostly read indie books, so this week's topic is another one of those topics that's just too difficult for me. That's why I've tweaked it! I've come to realize there are certain things that usually make me immediately start to love a character. I'm not talking the typical personality traits like brooding or sarcastic---those are...
 
Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Read in 2015

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Read in 2015

I'm pretty sure I've already talked about all these books and series roughly 27 times each this year, but what can I say? They are my favorites! They're also the books that don't get the attention they deserve---something I keep trying to change! (Some of these first in series are free on Amazon, so check 'em out!) I have had an AMAZING book year though and am keeping my fingers crossed that next...
