I Listened to My First Audio book!

I’m very late to this revelation and I have no idea why I waited so long. I constantly see ads for popular audio book companies on YouTube, and I know how many people enjoy reading them, but for some reason I thought I wouldn’t enjoy it. I think this is because I have always preferred… Continue reading I Listened to My First Audio book!

Do You Save Books for Certain Times of the Year? –A Bookish Discussion

Now that it is finally October and it’s actually starting to feel like fall, I wanted to talk about seasonal reading. In particular I'd love to know if anyone else collects books to read at particular times of the year. Before this year I honestly don’t think the season affected my reading habits too much… Continue reading Do You Save Books for Certain Times of the Year? –A Bookish Discussion

Scheduling blog posts weeks in advance and feeling really good about putting out consistent scheduling! Then once the post is published and you start to get comments on the post realising you have completely forgotten the topic of the post, and promptly go to read your own writing to figure out what you said.  … Continue reading The Dangers of Book Blogging #0004

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

Do You Stop Reading Books You Don’t Enjoy?—Bookish Discussion

Another bookish quirk that I hear people talk about is needing to finish a book regardless of how much they enjoy it. I know a few people who are absolute completionist and must finish a book once they have started, regardless of how much they enjoy it. I once even heard a story about a… Continue reading Do You Stop Reading Books You Don’t Enjoy?—Bookish Discussion

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
