Crooked Kingdom Reading Blog #2

I’m about a quarter of the way through ‘Crooked Kingdom’ by Leigh Bardugo. I most likely won’t get through with the story until another few days, but I’m loving the story. One thing I enjoy reading about is the addition of ordinary (non-combative) characters. It adds a nice blend to the outlaw way of lifeContinue reading “Crooked Kingdom Reading Blog #2”

Independent Bookstore Day Book Haul

Since Independent Bookstore Day was over the weekend, Andy and I couldn’t wait to make our visits to local bookstores within Hunterdon County. We set our sights on three local stores, with a last minute stop over to Pennsylvania to visit a book store that has many wonderful titles. Our first stop was over toContinue reading “Independent Bookstore Day Book Haul”

Books on Feminism that I Enjoy

While watching Steve Donoghue’s channel on BookTube, I learned that Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ is being re-released, along with a new cover. I loved reading ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ in college. It was for a Women’s Studies course (I minored in Women’s Studies at Seton Hall…a long time ago). I didn’t read the bookContinue reading “Books on Feminism that I Enjoy”

Asian Readathon TBR

This month is a very, very lackluster reading period…I’m in progress of reading one book at the moment. That story is Crooked Kingdom, by Leigh Bardugo. I wanted to read this story at the beginning of April, but it never came to pass. Better late than never, I guess! Now that May is approaching, IContinue reading “Asian Readathon TBR”

Wednesday Thoughts

This month has brought a lot of inactivity on the reading/writing front. Most of it has been due to health issues, and feeling stressed out from said problems. Planning a wedding has also brought its share of uncertainty, due to a dear family member (who is in the bridal party) neglecting her responsibility. Since IContinue reading “Wednesday Thoughts”

The Breakfast Club Book Tag

I discovered this tag on The Bibliophagist’s page. When I was younger, I enjoyed watching The Breakfast Club. I loved finding out the quirks and secrets from each of the characters stuck in that detention hall! Princess: a book that is very popular and pretty on the outside, but you thought was uninteresting on theContinue reading “The Breakfast Club Book Tag”

Easter Book Tag

Happy Easter to those who celebrate! I discovered this tag from Crowing About Books. Rabbit: A book you wish would multiply (a book you want a sequel to, but doesn’t have one) I would love ‘The Oyster Thief’ to have a sequel! It was such an amazing story about adventure and becoming your own person,Continue reading “Easter Book Tag”
