Quick Reviews: Catching Echoes // Tangled Echoes // Unleashing Echoes

For this quick review post, I have another complete series to review. This time the Reconstructionist series by Meghan Ciana Doidge. It's part of the Dowser series world, but it's probably possible to read just these if you want to. These books have my favorite character from the Dowser series as more of a main character. Anyway, here are my thoughts and links to the full...

Update: Life and Books (May 2021) + Mermay Art!

I know I technically did one of these posts last month (even though I skipped some parts), but it feels like it's been so long since my last update. I became Twitter famous since we last talked! Just kidding, but I did have a tweet go viral. It was a wild experience for someone who normally gets 10 likes on a good day. Anyway, if I was going to have a viral tweet (or thread, in this case), I'm...

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 (Mar 2019)

Hello again, my fellow book loving peeps. I gotta be honest, I am still struggling a lot. Both physically and mentally, for numerous reasons that I don't feel like getting into (if you've been reading my updates, you know some of them). I just feel so drained at this point. So blogging has been a bit of a struggle too. I just haven't had the energy to go through literally hundreds of posts on my...

Update: Life and Books (Feb 2019)

Let's see, real life updates... Nobody ask me about my dental situation. It's still not any better, and I don't want to talk about it. I also managed to bend back like a third of my big toe nail when I hit it with my other heel, so that was fun. I don't know how I even do these things. But my parents' shower still has a chunk of tile missing from where I once slipped and hit my heel against it...

Update: Life and Books (12/30/18)

It's December 31st! One year is ending, and a new one is beginning. Call me what you will (some would go with pessimist, I say realist), but I'm not feeling very positive about it, not when all my problems from this year are just carrying over into the new one. But I know no one wants to end their year by listening to me complain, so luckily I do have some good things to share about the past four...

Update: Life and Books (12/2/18)

I wanna start by letting my fellow bloggers know that I've not been avoiding you all! I've just not been doing a good job of bloghopping lately because I'm still having dental problems (here's the latest update about that---basically I've already been to 9 appointments and still have at least 10 or 11 more at the very minimum, including at least one minor surgery, but it'll probably turn out to...
