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...
 
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 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...

Update: Life and Books (Nov/Dec 2019)

I'm just gonna say it: I hate the new year. I don't hate the year itself, but I hate the holiday. There's all this pressure to make the new year better than the last, and you're supposed to be super positive, and you're supposed to make resolutions and goals, and everything is supposed to be...

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...

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...
