Alexia’s Recent DNFs

Alexia’s Recent DNFs

Wow, I have not done one of these posts in awhile. I try to do them every month, but that just hasn’t happened lately. I’ve had a rough reading time over the past few months, although October was fabulous. reading-wise. Let’s talk about the books that just didn’t work for me over the past few months. You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour & David Levithan. I hate not being invested in a book that I know could be really important […]

Bekka’s Five Star Predictions

Bekka’s Five Star Predictions

I’ve seen this around BookTube quite a bit, starting with Mercy’s Bookish Musings. I had been in a reading slump for the better part of October, so I decided not to take part right away. But now that I’m reading again and planning out all my end-of-the-year bookishness, I wanted to give this a go. The idea is to pick a handful of books you think you’ll rate five stars. This was harder than I thought, because giving out five […]

Falling in Love With Fantasy

Falling in Love With Fantasy

It’s no secret that fantasy books aren’t really my thing. I usually turn towards contemporary, science fiction or even horror books before fantasy books. But over the past 2 or so months, something has changed and I’ve found myself really into the fantasy genre. I’ve even given some fantasy books higher praise than contemporaries lately. It’s a weird shift that I wasn’t expecting and I also don’t know how long it will last. Like most bloggers, I do have a […]

Tropes and Styles I Do Not Like

Tropes and Styles I Do Not Like

Before I started blogging, I didn’t really read with a critical eye. And to be honest, I didn’t read a whole lot either. I basically liked everything I picked up, when I bothered to read a book. But now I read a LOT. Maybe not as much as a lot of book-internet-types, but much more than the average person, and much more than pre-internet Bekka. Over the years I’ve been able to hone my critical eye – and I’ve been […]

Let’s Talk About Tea!

Let’s Talk About Tea!

A few years ago I discovered Adagio Teas while searching for the perfect gift for a friend. I found their fandom teas and I was hooked. I’ve since made a bunch of purchases from them, my favorite being their candy apple blend. So when Adagio contacted me about reviewing some of their teas I was through the roof. They have a massive selection and their teas come in loose tea or in sachets, but I thought since they have a […]

What I’ve Been Watching

What I’ve Been Watching

I was just looking at the last time I did one of these posts and it was in JULY. As in MONTHS ago. I don’t know why I didn’t do one in August, and I was in the hospital in September. I am super stoked to talk about the shows I’ve been watching lately, and by lately, I mean in the last month or so. Caught Up The Fosters: I binge watched the first half of season 5 of The […]

Reading More While Taking Care of Baby

Reading More While Taking Care of Baby

  Rosie is eight months old now and I think I finally got the hang of this whole parenting-a-baby thing. Not parenting in general, just keeping a baby happy and healthy and growing and all that, while taking care of myself and my home. In general, things are starting to look like normal again, and this includes reading. I read over ten books per month over the summer and it’s been amazing. I’ve mostly liked them too! This is because […]
