Bookish Musings: Opening Lines (3)

Bookish Musings: Opening Lines (3)

Yes, it's another opening lines post! What can I say? They're fairly easy but also fun and interesting. I don't pay a whole lot of attention to opening lines when I'm actually reading a book, so I like going back and seeing them in books I've read. Normally I do this completely randomly, just grabbing or looking up random books I've read. But for some reason, I came upon a lot of prologues...
 
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...

Update: Life and Books (Aug 2021)

Another month, another monthly post in which I have to figure out what to talk about. I played some of the games I bought in the Steam sale last month! The Starfighter: Eclipse game, the one I'd wanted for a long time, was unfortunately a disappointment. Monster Hunting... for Love was fun though. I also played a bunch of very quick, free games by npckc on itch.io. They were cute, and my...
 
Book Review: Any Way the Wind Blows (Simon Snow Book 3) by Rainbow Rowell [Audiobook]

Book Review: Any Way the Wind Blows (Simon Snow Book 3) by Rainbow Rowell [Audiobook]

🌟One of my faves!🌟 Their road trip didn't go quite as planned, and Simon is still depressed. Back home in England, Simon and Baz work through relationship struggles and try to learn about a new supposed "chosen one," Penny attempts to remove a demon curse from Shepard, Agatha starts working at her dad's place, and they all try to figure out where to go next in life and what makes them...

Update: Life and Books (Dec 2020)

Happy New Year! Not that it's really all that happy, but standard phrases and all that. I kind of took my time getting around to this update because of headaches and general feelings of meh. As to what I've been up to for the past month, mostly just a lot of reading. (Well, listening, but you get it.) No new games or podcasts or even movies/shows, I don't think. Didn't do anything for the...

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

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...

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2019

I haven't been able to put together book cover posts lately because of my headache problems, but nobody panic! I still managed to make this post to showcase some of my favorite covers from the books I read this year :-) Unfortunately I couldn't include ALL the covers I loved (there were so many!), and I couldn't make the collage, but I've still got some super gorgeous book covers here, and I...
