I have an aversion to recommending books. I don't know if it's a fear of rejection or if I'm just soft when it comes to my favorites, but if I recommend you a book, you are obligated to like it. I don't make the rules... but my mother also doesn't follow the rules either. And… Continue reading Five Stage of Grief: Recommending a Book and They Don’t Like It
As of writing this post, I've only read 31 books this year. Kind of sad for me, but I'm in the final stage of grief: acceptance. So, normally, I'd do a Mid-Year Freak Out tag and... you can see that's become an impossibility. Because in all honesty, I've only named two books a favorite, the… Continue reading Mid Year Goals for 2020
Thank you to Titan Comics for providing me with review copies of all three volumes! Now, I'm not much for graphic novels. If I'm honest, I have the attention span of a goldfish, which says a lot to begin with. But, when one of my favorite authors comes out with an extension of one of… Continue reading Gushing about the Steel Prince series.
As this Pride month kind of SNUCK UP ON ME like a ninja, I thought I'd get personal here on my bloggy blog and talk about some things. Some things being my sexuality and how books or one in particular helped shape that. Now, before I start I should bring up some content warnings: I… Continue reading Coming Out and how one book helped me.
Hey! Remember when I took an unsolicited hiatus for about a month and a half? Well, last month I promised to come back... and still haven't read anything. I don't have the motivation. I don't have the spoons. I don't have ANYTHING/. Which is where this post comes up. And despite the title, this post is less of… Continue reading So, You Can’t Come Back from your Reading Slump.
I know this may seem sudden, seeing as I've been gone for a LITERAL month but, I hate to inform you guys that ... Wow, that felt unnecessary. Sorry to those that believed me... ...Did anyone actually believe me??? Jeez, I've been gone so long, WordPress changed its format again. Don't even recognize it anymore, haha. It's… Continue reading I Quit Blogging.
It's been a while since I've recommended a book... and I also really wanted to post more for Black History Month... we're not going to get into it. I'm here. Now, usually, I'd recommend books I'd actually read, but because I haven't really been reading much this month... I thought I'd suggest books that I've recently added to my… Continue reading Might I Recommend… Black Books on my Radar 2020?
I've mentioned my hoarding ways when I unhauled a few books for the new year, but going on Goodreads and seeing this TOWER of books threatening me with a knife to the throat... ya girl knew it wasn't over. So, I got to work and... I went from around 600 books even to 442 (!!!) and… Continue reading Clearing my ‘Want to Read’ Shelf on Goodreads.
New blog series... thingie... for 2020? LETS GOOOOOOO. There's no secret that I'm weirdly picky with the books I read.When deciding on a book I'm not only going to add to my Goodreads shelf but buy and read: I give it a full on evaluation. I mean reading twenty million reviews and sometimes or often getting spoilers... I'm intense. Soooo, it's… Continue reading 6 Things That Will Make me Pick Up a Book.
I don't know if it's the decade ending or if I'm just in a reminescent mood, but I remember a time when I could self-identify as a book hoarder. Despite the fact that I only had one shelf to work with and no job and no money and no time to read all of these books, I couldn't… Continue reading Clearing My Shelves for the New Year
