The (Not So) Darkling: Exploring Villainy

Before I get into this, know that I’m not necessarily talking about disney-type villains who seem to be ambitious and evil for the sake of power. I’m talking about villains who don’t see themselves as the villain, who truly believe that  what they’re doing is for the greater good. There’s a fine line between an […]

The Best & Worst Books I’ve Read This Year

It’s happening, y’all. We’re winding down on what seemed to be the longest freaking year ever. I mean, Black Panther came out THIS year! I don’t know about y’all, but it feels like it was released in 2017. Anyways, I know with the end of the year comes a flurry of best-books-of-the-year lists, so I […]

Queen of Air and Darkness Hangover Recovery Kit Review

Today’s post features a bookish one-time box from Fae Crate. I have never ordered a subscription box that featured a bookish theme.

However, I […]

Issues in the Bookish Community

Click-bait title aside, I didn’t want to write this post. I hate anything to do with “drama”, but I feel this needs to be addressed within the book community. Not that I’m some kind of authority on the matter, but I’m going to explode if I don’t get it out somehow.  Throughout the last six […]

Mid-book Update!

Hello! So, this Summer was very weird in terms of reading. Let me regale you with a (somewhat short) tale of my adventures in reading. Let’s start with May. I read maybe 3 books that month. I considered this successful since in April, I read nothing. June. LET ME TELL YOU. June was my best […]

Top 5 Reading Slump Tips

Ah, the Reading Slump. Just saying the words causes my stomach to turn. If you’ve spent any amount of time in the bookish community, you likely have heard the phrase. It’s used to describe the awful feeling that accompanies not wanting to read. I know, NOT wanting to read? Blasphemy. However, it is a totally […]
