    Books that look like other books

    Hello friends!! The other week I commented that the only reason I picked up a book on my Kindle was because I thought it was part of a series I had started.

    Hello friends!! Welcome to the March 2024 TBR. A post where I will attempt to intuit what I feel like reading for the month of March.

    2024 reading challenges I’m… doing?

    Hello friends!! Welcome to me attempting to figure out what 2024 reading challenges I’m going to be… doing. I say “figuring out” because sometimes (ok, most of the time), I write my blog posts as a stream of consciousness and then I rarely go back and edit them. And now you know my creative process. Surprise! And I thought it…

    2022 mid year book tag
