Great American Reads.

I might have mentioned it in a post last year (last year seems a long time ago, doesn’t it?) but the Great American Read was conducted throughout the year. I heard about it at the beginning of 2019 when it first began circulating, but then it just kind of…fell off the face of the earth. […]

The Epic Reads Book Tag.

This book tag was found on Reading, Reading, Reading. 1. If you could invite one author and one of their fictional characters to tea, who would you invite and what would you serve them?

The 20 Questions Book Tag.

I originally found this book tag on Paper Fury. So without further ado, let’s jump right into it, shall we? 1. How many books are too many for a series? As long as there’s still a compelling story going and the author has a good outline going, then I think a series can have as […]

The Unpopular Opinions Book Tag.

Occasionally, I’ll watch book nerds on YouTubers. The other day I watched a video by Liane on literarydiversions about her unpopular opinions about different books. Intrigued, I decided to look up the prompts so I could write about them myself on my blog. So, let’s get started on my own unpopular opinions on books. A […]
