  • Narrowing Down My All Time Favorites

    Narrowing Down My All Time Favorites

    One of my favorite booktubers to watch is Books and Lala and a couple of years ago, she made a Tier Ranking Video where she went back to all of her old favorites list and ranked them into five categories. She then has re-read ten of them that she put into the need to re-read […]

    Let’s Talk: Heavier Topics and Romance Novels

    This post is heavily inspired by my reading of The Heart Principle and the subsequent review I wrote and then also the additional mini rant I wrote in response to Nick’s comment on my review.

    2021 Wrap Up and 2022 Goals

    It’s honestly hard to believe that 2022 is here and 2021 has come to a close. It feels so weird to look back on the last year. I started 2021 with covid, finally started therapy, but not until after I booked a last minute trip across the country to go whale watching in Seattle to […]

    Ranking Every 2021 Release I Read from January – April

    I did this for the first four months of the year last year too and then couldn’t figure out a practical way to continue the series because I read so many 2020 releases. This year, I have a plan. I’m going to just rank all the books from each four month period and hope that […]
