Last week, I made a list of books that are made for Gryffindors, and this week I get to show off my house pride by sharing five books made for Ravenclaws. Fly, eagles, fly! Ravenclaws value wit, learning, and wisdom, and here are five books that highlight those values. The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict … Continue reading 5 books that Ravenclaws will love
I know we're already a few days into the month, but I just read Kaleena's post on how to stay up to date on new releases, and it was super helpful. I always thought that staying on top of new releases would be a complicated and daunting task, but it turns out it's super easy! … Continue reading February releases that I’m excited for
I am so excited for this month's Top 5 Tuesday topics: Hogwarts houses! I'll admit that I've been pretty down on Harry Potter ever since the second Fantastic Beasts movie came out. But no matter how annoyed I am at where the fandom is headed these days, Harry Potter will always hold a special place … Continue reading 5 books that are perfect for Gryffindors
Top 5 Tuesday is a series hosted by Bionic Book Worm. One things I'm trying to do this year is read more books written by women and POC.

There are two additional ones at the end of the list that wouldn't fit in the picture: Ready … Continue reading My Favorite Movies of 2018
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. The topic this week is 10 authors that I discovered in 2018. This one is super easy for me because in 2018 I read more books than I ever have … Continue reading 10 authors that I discovered in 2018

Sure, I'm a bit of an optimist in certain scenarios, but for the most part I'm always envisioning the worst-case scenario for any given situation. I've also grown a bit cynical in the past few years. I've noticed lately that I've been complaining … Continue reading My Favorite Things #1
Since moving from Connecticut to a region that I hate, Gilmore Girls has been my solace. It's one of my favorite shows of all time and I feel a pretty deep connection to Rory, having grown up in a small town, raised by a single mom, book lover, etc. Up until she becomes a terrible … Continue reading How many of the 339 books referenced on Gilmore Girls have I read?
Hello! Long time, no see. It's been a while since I've posted anything here. I got swept up in NaNoWriMo in November and didn't really get much reading done at all that month, and I'm still in a bit of a reading slump. But I finally feel like I'm getting back on track, so before … Continue reading My 10 Favorite Books of 2018
