Did Anyone Actually Read The Animorph Books?

Does anyone else remember the Animorph books? Those kids books with the amazing covers showing different kids (in very late 90’s styles) transforming into various animals. The best part of these 'morphs' was the wonderful the in-between phases of kid into animal, which produced so many hilarious images. I have always remembered loving these books.… Continue reading Did Anyone Actually Read The Animorph Books?

Getting annoyed because the New Microsoft Word  helpfully informs me to be more concise in my writing-- constantly. I understand this would be helpful for scholarly and academic writing, but this is a book blog; I don’t need this computer sass.  I need to be succinct in my writing for classes, I so I like… Continue reading The Dangers of Book Blogging #382

Dark Tales by Shirley Jackson–Review

There's something nasty in suburbia. In these deliciously dark tales, the daily commute turns into a nightmarish game of hide and seek, the loving wife hides homicidal thoughts and the concerned citizen might just be an infamous serial killer. In the haunting world of Shirley Jackson, nothing is as it seems and nowhere is safe,… Continue reading Dark Tales by Shirley Jackson–Review

Collecting a strange box of book-ish props for your photos. I have way too many fake flowers, tiny pumpkin decorations, fabric backgrounds, paper flowers, and old book pages all collected together, it’s a lot. And it is far too easy to justify buying more.   Please let me know if you think this series is… Continue reading The Dangers of Book Blogging #32129

Your neighbors seeing you taking odd photos of books, coffee and pumpkins in your ground level window. I'm normally taking pictures from above, while standing on my bed. So, I'm sure it looks...interesting! I’ve gotten a few looks, but that’s fine-- I've just moved out today😊   I imagine it won't be long until my… Continue reading The Dangers of Book Blogging #2121

Accidentally letting your mother know that you have a tattoo, because you shared a link to your blog. My tattoo is a Harry Potter quote so I thought it would be a cute thing to list in my about me page, and I totally forgot about this when I sent her the link. Hi mom!… Continue reading The Dangers of Book Blogging #72927
