Weekly Wrap-Up (68)

Hey all, Dani here. Woohoo, it's Wednesday. It has started getting really hot here in Ohio, and unfortunately working in a factory means that it is ungodly hot while at work, so the past couple of days have not been pleasant. But on the happy side of things is my continuing work with Colorworld Books.… Continue reading Weekly Wrap-Up (68)

Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Hey all, Dani here. Black Lives Matter. It seems crazy that we need to keep saying that statement in 2020. But I will be one of the ones to keep saying it until we can make it true. I know I haven't been the best ally out there, but I am working on being better… Continue reading Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Recommendations: For Fans of Broadway

Hey all, Dani here. I know there's a lot of people missing the ability to go to the theater. Technically yes, this statement applies to movies and to live theater, but for the purposes of today's recommendations post, let's just all assume that when I say theater I am talking about live shows. I am… Continue reading Recommendations: For Fans of Broadway

Recommendations: Books About Books

Hey all, Dani here. Obviously, with National Library Week running from April 19-25, I am in the mood to talk about books and libraries and bookstores...and so that translates into wanting to talk about books that are written about books, or about libraries, or about bookstores. So for today's recommendations posts, I want to toss… Continue reading Recommendations: Books About Books

Hey all, Dani here.

Recommendations: Spring Atmosphere

A few months ago I did a wintery atmosphere recommendations post, and when I was trying to plan out my posts for March and April, I realized that I had had fun making the seasonal recommendation post, so why not try to keep going with it.

Blog Tour Review: Night of the Dragon by Julie Kagawa

Hey all, Dani here. Hello and welcome to Tuesday, which is book release day (AKA the day my checking account weeps, lol). Actually this particular release day isn't too strenuous for me...though one of my local indie bookstores is doing a mystery box sale, where you tell them your preferred genre and your shirt size… Continue reading Blog Tour Review: Night of the Dragon by Julie Kagawa

The Ultimate Recommendations Book Tag

Hey all, Dani here. Well things are about to get real interesting around me. The county I live in in Ohio just got its first confirmed case of COVID-19, but as of right now, my workplace is still open. We'll see if that changes by the end of the weekend. Is it wrong that I'm… Continue reading The Ultimate Recommendations Book Tag

Bookish Academy Awards Tag

Hey all, Dani here. So today I have a non-Middle Grade March post, and that’s because I do this tag every year at this time. I don't know why I wait to do it until March, when the Academy Awards took place last month. I tell myself that it's so I can go over all… Continue reading Bookish Academy Awards Tag
