March Wrap-Up and April TBRs/Weekly Wrap-Up (58)

Hey all, Dani here. Okay, this might end up being a slightly longer post, because I'm combining my usual weekly wrap-up with my monthly wrap-up. Otherwise I would just end up having two posts that have a 50% overlap and that seemed silly to me. Anyway. Wow, we made it through March and we have… Continue reading March Wrap-Up and April TBRs/Weekly Wrap-Up (58)

Manga Review: Magus of the Library, Volume 2

Hey all, Dani here. My workplace is still up and running, but they have taken a number of precautions, such as shutting down our water fountains and ice machines, and restricting the available options in the cafeteria. They are also promoting hand-washing and keeping a safe distance while on breaks and such. But for now… Continue reading Manga Review: Magus of the Library, Volume 2

Discussion: Bookish Love in a Time of COVID-19

Hey all, Dani here. So today's post might end up being a bit shorter than the rest of my discussion posts lately. I had to rearrange my blog schedule a little bit to squeeze this post in, but I think it is incredibly worth disrupting my schedule. We've had a lot of schedule disruptions here… Continue reading Discussion: Bookish Love in a Time of COVID-19

Review: The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M Valente

Hey all, Dani here. It's Thursday! And I'm in for a long shift at work today, so that should be a fun time. Anyway, I am finally able to bring you all my first review for my Middle Grade March reading.

Discussion: Read Outside Your Comfort Zone

Hey all, Dani here. I think I really need to try to come up with a list of bookish discussion topics. Honestly, about 85% of the time I put off writing my bi-weekly discussion posts until the last minute because I just don't know what I want to write about. This is probably one of… Continue reading Discussion: Read Outside Your Comfort Zone

NaNoWriMo Prep Part Two: Writing Resources

Hey all, Dani here. It is almost time for NaNoWriMo--that's National Novel Writing Month, if you didn't already know--to begin. Actually for some of you it probably already has begun. It runs from November 1-30, and the challenge is to write 50,000 words in just 30 days. I've already detailed some of the writing apps… Continue reading NaNoWriMo Prep Part Two: Writing Resources

Review: The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith

Hey all, Dani here. The premise of today's book sounded so utterly interesting to me that I had to put it on my highly anticipated list. And then, pretty much as soon as I got my copy, I was ready to sit down and start reading. Thankfully, I can say that my anticipation was not… Continue reading Review: The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith

Review: Suggested Reading by Dave Connis

Hey all, Dani here. Whew, the work week is finally over for me. I think the plan for this weekend is still the same: Damian and I are going to unplug for a couple of days and do some relaxing and hiking, and go visit his grandparents and camp in their backyard, like we did… Continue reading Review: Suggested Reading by Dave Connis

Discussion: Book Censorship

Hey all, Dani here. I feel like I'm stuck in a cycle of late nights and very long and busy days. So yesterday Damian and I worked our usual 10 hour shift, went home and finished packing, drove three hours to Cincinnati, and then ended up working on booth setup at Cincinnati Comic Expo for… Continue reading Discussion: Book Censorship

Recommendations: Pride Reads

Hey all, Dani here. My last LGBTQIAP+ recommendations post was a while ago, and with it being GLBT Book Month and celebrating Pride, I figured it was time for a more recent list of recommendations. Actually, I think pretty much all of the books on this list fall in the LGBT portion, so if you… Continue reading Recommendations: Pride Reads
