Bookish Musings: 5 Adorable Quotes from Adorable Book Couples

Bookish Musings: 5 Adorable Quotes from Adorable Book Couples

I needed a blog post, and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so I took inspiration from that. And I just love characters and relationships and quotes and wanted the excuse to talk about them! I didn't want to overwhelm everyone with too long of a blog post though. So here are five quotes from five (but definitely not all) of my favorite book couples being silly or swoony or ridiculous...
 
Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books/Series I Read in 2021 + Some Non-Bookish Things

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books/Series I Read in 2021 + Some Non-Bookish Things

Time for my last, but certainly not least, blog post of the year. My favorite books and series! (Also games and podcasts and one movie and one show, because why not!?) I guess I really don't need to ramble here, the post will speak for itself. So out of the roughly 150 books I read this years, here are my ten(ish, because series) favorites, in no particular order except for the last two, and...
 
Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read in 2021

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read in 2021

Characters! I love 'em. But I especially love some of them. And that's what this post is about! As I sometimes do, despite the post title, I've included a couple non-book characters. This is my one chance to really gush about all the characters I love, I'm not gonna pass that up. I have to admit, taking up five of the ten (technically twelve) spots, this is a vampire-heavy list 😅 I do...
 
Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2021

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2021

I love pretty book covers! They can definitely entice me to read a book I probably wouldn't have been quite interested enough in otherwise. Or make me more excited for a book I already wanted to read. Or make me want a print copy, just so I can look at it whenever I want. So, as I think I've said before, this is a post I really look forward to each year. I included some runners-up, but I...
 
Bookish Tag Post: Christmas Book Covers Tag [Original]

Bookish Tag Post: Christmas Book Covers Tag [Original]

I wanted to do something Christmassy and simple and fun today since Christmas is less than a week away. A few years back, I did a Halloween book covers tag, so I thought I'd do one for this holiday too. My tags are chill, so if you want to join, the only rule is to give me credit by linking back to this post! Some of the topics are difficult, so if you want to skip them or replace them or do your...
 
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...
