Weekly Wrap Up May 17 – Quarantine Anxiety Reading

This was a rough week. For various reasons, my anxiety has been a little bit out of control and it’s just been affecting everything in my life. There was even one day I didn’t even feel like playing Animal Crossing. I’m not saying this so you feel sorry for me (please don’t), just the reality […]

Upcoming TV & Movie Adaptations I’m Excited About (Part 2)

At the beginning of the year, I published a post all about the upcoming movie & TV adaptations I’m excited about. And, of course, I forgot quite a few of them. I also found out about quite a few more that have since been announced. So, naturally, this required a second post. So here are […]

The Biggest Books on My Goodreads TBR

Over the past couple of years, I have been trying to get over my fear of giant books. And I’ve been doing fairly well. I knocked a few giants off my TBR already. Turns out, the two biggest, most intimidating books I read last year turned out to be some of my all-time favorites. If […]

Book Review | Real Men Knit

If you follow me on Instagram, you might already know that, in addition to reading, I like to knit. I don’t knit as much as I’d like to (mostly because nice yarn is expensive and also because I live in Southern California, which means I don’t really get to wear the things I knit), but […]

Weekly Wrap Up May 10 – Tome Topple Has Begun!

Somehow, we’re already a third of the way through May and one day into Tome Topple, which means I probably should be farther into a few more books, but I’m not. Which I guess is fine because I read five books this week! I have absolutely no idea how that happened. The first book I […]

Spring 2020 Favorites

The beginning of this year wasn’t great for reading, at least for me. In February, I went on a trip and was incredibly sick when I came back. I spent like two weeks at work before getting sent home (I’m still working from home until further notice). That means I have had plenty of time […]

Book Review | Katheryn Howard: The Scandalous Queen

You have probably already heard me talk about my love for Alison Weir’s Six Tudor Queens series. Weir writes both history books (like my favorite Queens of the Conquest) and historical fiction books. I’ve been reading her books for over a decade. She’s one of the reasons I love Tudor history so much. This series […]

Weekly Wrap Up May 3 – I Finished My First OWL Readathon!

These weekly wrap ups are probably the only reason I even know what day it is anymore. I know I’m working from home Monday-Friday, but the days just totally blend together. What even is time anymore? Okay, my brain is getting away from me, let’s just talk about books. I somehow felt like this wasn’t […]

Asian Readathon 2020 TBR

If you’re asking yourself why I’m posting on a Saturday, the answer is that I am clearly way too bored and don’t have enough to read, so I’m challenging myself to another readathon. I already have a reading project I’m working on for a blog post later this month, and I’m planning on participating in […]
