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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Hogwarts House Book Recommendations

Hogwarts House Book Recommendations

September is upon us (yikes) and I don’t know about you, but this time of year always makes me nostalgic for Harry Potter. Since we’re all getting ready to board the Hogwarts Express and cozy up in our house common rooms, I thought I’d share a few recommendations based on the four Hogwarts Houses. So there will be two books to go to each house, along with which Harry Potter book I feel exemplifies each house the best. The Gryffindor […]

How Do You Manage Your TBR?

How Do You Manage Your TBR?

In the beginning of July, I wrote a post assessing how my TBRs were working out and noticed I hardly read anything I listed for the month. With that knowledge I implemented a new system that I really think helped me get to my TBR in July and will help me going forward. I’ve always been a mood reader so I felt these lists were kind of constricting in the past, but with this new system I’ve been able to […]

Bekka’s Auto-Buy Authors

Bekka’s Auto-Buy Authors

  Auto-buy authors. I think a lot of us who purchase books have a handful of authors on this list. These are authors we automatically pre-order, books what click “want to read” for the moment they show up on Goodreads. I know I have a fair amount of authors who have written books that meant so much to me, I have to gobble up their back list and read all their new releases. My list isn’t very long because money, […]
