[Comic Book Review] Big Mushy Happy Lump by Sarah Andersen




Sarah Andersen's hugely popular, world-famous Sarah's Scribbles comics are for those of us who boast bookstore-ready bodies and Netflix-ready hair, who are always down for all-night reading-in-bed parties and extremely exclusive after-hour one-person music festivals. In addition to the most recent Sarah's Scribbles fan favorites and dozens of all-new comics, this volume contains illustrated personal essays on Sarah's real-life experiences with anxiety, career, relationships and other adulthood challenges that will remind readers of Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half and Jenny Lawson's Let's Pretend This Never Happened. The same uniquely frank, real, yet humorous and uplifting tone that makes Sarah's Scribbles so relatable blooms beautifully in this new longer form. 

[Top 5 Wednesday] My Fan-Cast Favorites



It's time for this week's Top Five Wednesday! This has been created by gingerreadslainey and it also has a Goodreads group. I am hoping to do these posts (or other weekly Wednesday posts) more often as long as I am interested in the current prompt! This week's prompt is my personal picks for some fan casting of some character's I've read! This is something that took some thinking but I am really excited to talk about my choices. Some of these choices are things I have had in my mind for a while, which unfortunately means the actors or actresses may be too old to play the characters. However, because this is obviously all make-believe I am going to stick to the ones I am most passionate about even if they're outdated.

Take A Moment Monday: Reading Slumps, Anxiety, & Distractions


Take A Moment Monday is something I stumbled upon while checking out new blogs. One being the ladies at KickAss Chicks who do Take A Moment Mondays. So I definitely recommend their blog. I am not sure if they created this blog trend, but if not and you know who did I'll credit them.

For me, Take A Moment Monday will be something I do when I feel like I need to get something off my chest (bookish or not), if I feel like I need to give live updates for whichever reason, maybe have a section where I am talking wedding planning, and document my life a little more often. I would love to have more updates on my blog of wedding planning so I can look back. Of course, this is a reading blog, so if this life update kind of blog isn't for you I understand. I hope you'll stay though. I don't doubt I'll talk books at least a little in each one. I may go this weekly, I may do it a couple times a month. I don't want to force myself, but I like the idea.

[Book Review] Because You Love To Hate Me edited by Ameriie


In this unique YA anthology, thirteen acclaimed, bestselling authors team up with thirteen influential BookTubers to reimagine fairy tales from the oft-misunderstood villains' points of view.

These fractured, unconventional spins on classics like "Medusa," Sherlock Holmes, and "Jack and the Beanstalk" provide a behind-the-curtain look at villains' acts of vengeance, defiance, and rage--and the pain, heartbreak, and sorrow that spurned them on. No fairy tale will ever seem quite the same again!
