Annual Book Sale Haul! {2020}

Hello, Readers! Every year the library system that I work for has one gigantic combined book sale. There are so many books that it takes up multiple rooms of one of the expo halls in the state fair grounds, and it is a cheap bookworm's dream: row upon row of books that cost no more...

The Worst Way to End a Series – A Rant Review of MILA 2.0 (Spoilers!)

This review contains major spoilers for the MILA 2.0 trilogy, especially the last book, Redemption. Today's post also mentions suicide (as does the book).

WWW Wednesday {2.12.2020}

I had planned to spend a chunk of my desk time on Tuesday working on this post, but instead I went down a rabbit hole of reading reviews for House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. It's a book that comes highly recommended to me, but I'm hesitant to read it. I just don't do... Continue Reading →

Tackling the TBR #4

I wrote this post a few weeks ago, and then it didn't end up fitting in my posting schedule at the time. Now that I have a place for it, the numbers don't exactly line up anymore. However, they were accurate when I wrote this post, and I intend to write another edition soon, so... Continue Reading →
