Yea Verily, Friday Favorites is Verbose

September 27: Favorite Words *Content Warning!* I enjoy curse words, the more inventive the better. This is one of the reasons I follow Chuck Wendig's blog religiously. No one can cuss with more aplomb and less apology. HOWEVER. I do realize overt bad wordery is not for everyone and so I'm including this content warning. Here [...]

Friday Favorites: Pumpkin Spice Edition

September 20: Favorite Autumn Reads I am one of those annoying people who love pumpkin spice and celebrate the season it shows up in everything. I admit this with zero shame, because pumpkin spice is the best. And you know what's even better? Apples. And caramel. And caramel apples. And butternut squash, pecans, maple, cinnamon, cloves...basically [...]

Friday Favorites Has Some Unfinished Business

September 13: Favorite Unfinished Series (either you haven’t read all the books or series that aren’t complete yet) This one will be kinda short. When a series is recommended to me, I try out the first few books. If I don't fall in love it that's where it stops, so those would be my unfinished series [...]

Friday Favorites is at Your Side, to Kick You Into Shape

September 6th is: Favorite Side Characters The title is supposed to reference sidekicks, but I suspect it's just going to annoy Google's search parameters, so really I see no downside to this. Onward! Favorite Lord of the Rings Side Characters Samwise Gamgee: The ultimate, gold-standard, shall-not-be-topped loyal, devoted, fearless, practical, loving side character. Sam is just the [...]

Friday Favorites is Scholastic Fantastic

August 30: Favorite Books You Read in School Brave New World, Aldous Huxley This one definitely started my lifelong love of post apocalyptic/dystopian novels. Opening up a little window and peering into a totally deranged future is one of my favorite things and damn is the future in this book disturbing. 1984, George Orwell Again, a [...]

Friday Favorites is Totally Adorkable

August 23: Favorite Nerdy CharactersQuick internet searching tells me that a nerd is defined as; "a person seen as overly intellectual, obsessive, introverted, interested in obscure or not-popular things, and lacking social skills."Basically? I am ALL OF THOSE THINGS. It's like the internet knows my life! (Hi, yes, agents of Big Brother, in all honesty I [...]

Friday Favorites is So Underrated

August 16: Favorite Underrated Books. As is completely normal for me, I'm listing entire series instead of one book because what is moderation? When I fall in love with an author I fall HARD and I read everything they've ever written. Clicking on the author's name will take you to the Goodreads page for the book which [...]
