Michelles July Wrap-Up

Hey guys I am back again albeit briefly because I am at the library and now have to use the library computer for a couple of weeks due to some unforeseen circumstances.  So while I am here I am trying to get this post out there to y’all and just let you know that I […]

His Dark Materials: From Characters to the BBC

I want to apologise if this post comes off too much like a slightly informal Literature essay. I wanted to do something different than a series review, and so this discussion is the result. My Opinions/Disclaimer I love these books. In fact, this is a new favourite series of mine. I love the world, I […]

Ten Books That Have Inspired Me to Learn

Yes, it’s me again, holding down the TTT fort while Michelle waits for her internet to be reinstated. This week I’m sharing some books that inspired me to learn new things.

What Is The Literary Canon?

I posted a tweet the other day asking whether anyone would be interested in some more serious literary posts from me. A few people seemed to like the idea, and I got the usual love and support from Michelle, so here we are. I want to preface this by saying that I’m not exactly an […]

I Am An Obsessive Reader

I want to apologise if this post is, well, bad. I meant to have a review up, but I haven’t written any reviews. Instead, here we are talking about how much of an obsessive reader I am. Let me explain what I mean by that… Simply, I can’t half-ass things. If I’m going do something, […]

Ten Books Set Outside The US

You should all be worried this week. I’ve been given complete control of Top Ten Tuesday while Michelle is busy moving house. Do you know what this means? MADNESS. Madness, and even more dinosaurs than usual (only, not really). With that done, I’m going to share with you my picks for books set outside the […]

What Am I Reading?

I don’t usually do mid-monthly updates, but I was a little stuck for ideas this week. I’m writing a bunch of time-consuming posts—they’ll be great, but they’re not ready yet. So instead, you’re stuck with this for now. I do like these kinds of posts, so I hope you do too. As you’re about to realise, […]

Writing Update #5: What’s Going On & Dedications

You may have noticed that I stopped doing my writing updates without any warning. I’m sure most of you have realised how bad I am with sticking to features, but I feel like this one had a real reason. For a while there, I just wasn’t writing anything. In May, I didn’t break 3,000 words […]
