Today's post is a tag all about LGBT+ history! I was very excited to be tagged by Riddhi @ WhisperingStories, so I'm going to do my best with the answers. I'll attempt to fulfil all the prompts with queer books, to make it a bit more challenging and exciting. Rules Link back to the original… Continue reading LGBTQ+ Historical Icons Tag
Fall Out Boy have been one of the most influential bands in my life. They were vital to me during my teenage years and they remain one of my favourites in my mid-twenties. And Joe has always been my favourite member, so when I found out he was publishing a memoir I was beyond excited.… Continue reading Book Review: None of This Rocks by Joe Trohman
Remember when in my August Wrap-Up I said, and I quote: "I am slowly getting back to posting more regularly"? Well, that was a fun one considering I haven't posted anything since then. I was confident I was going to have some time to blog in September, but finishing and then preparing to present my… Continue reading September Wrap-Up
August went quite better than expected. I was on vacation from my job for most of it so I had more time to focus on my internship, which I'm now unfortunately over with. I also got to mostly finish my master's thesis—which I feel like I've been talking about forever—and relax a bit. I'm also… Continue reading August Wrap-Up
Morgan @ Morgan Is Reading Again tagged me to do this tag—originally created by Sophie @ Me and Ink—at the perfect moment. I'd been thinking that I really wanted to write another music-related post, but I wasn't sure what to write to integrate books with it (you know that's become one of my favourite challenges). So,… Continue reading The Me and Music Tag
As lots of people in their mid-twenties, I was a fan of iCarly back in the day. Sam was, hands down, my favourite character, so when I saw Jennette McCurdy had written a memoir, I simply had to read it. Today, I'm telling you what I thought of it (spoiler alert: it put me out… Continue reading Book Review: I’m Glad My Mom Died by Jennette McCurdy
Today I would like to talk about different types of narrators in books, specifically about the one vs. multiple narrators debate. This is something I hadn't really payed all that much attention to until recently because I naively thought surely everyone liked multiple POVs better. In my brain there was no question that following more… Continue reading One or Multiple POVs?
This tag is always one I enjoy because it's an opportunity to look back to the reading year and evaluate it. I was very happy that Morgan @ Morgan Is Reading Again tagged me to do it as I was already planning on writing it regardless! Best book you’ve read so far in 2022 It's… Continue reading Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag
Sooo, I was very late to the party but I started June by finally catching Covid and having to cancel my birthday plans. I normally don't do anything to celebrate so of course the one year I decided to have a small gathering I'm unable to. Thankfully, the month improved fast as I finally got… Continue reading June Wrap-Up
Way back in January, I wrote a post about favourite books where I briefly touched on how the author of a book might impact our view on their work. The call to cancel problematic and controversial authors has been going strong for a long time now—to be point of there being lists with "authors to… Continue reading Can We Love a Book Written by a Bad Person?
