Not every relationship needs to be a ship

I love platonic relationships. I love strong friendships between people of any gender with no underlying romantic or sexual tensions. I love strong friendships between siblings.

Mount TBR: First 20% Challenge

First 20% Challenge Like most book bloggers, at one point I accidentally requested myself into a TBR mountain that promptly collapsed on me when everything was approved and due at around the same time. Ah, who am I kidding? This has actually happened to me twice now. It’s not uncommon, in book blogging, to request […]

Let’s Talk About Bookmarks!

Bookmarks! Little things to hold your place in a book! They’re amazing, aren’t they? I never used to think so. Believe it or not, when I was a kid, I never used bookmarks. I memorised the page number I was up to and closed the book. I have no idea why. There were plenty of […]

Never Ever Do This To Me

It’s been a while since I’ve done a discussion post! To be honest, I haven’t felt much like I had anything interesting or unique to say, so I haven’t said anything outside of a book review in a long time. But recently I’ve been thinking about people with the best intentions. You know, generous people. […]
