“Inside Out” book tag

Kristina Horner made this tag on her channel a while ago, and I've been wanting to do it on here ever since. It's based on the movie "Inside Out," which I LOVE. (I recently added a Sadness vinyl figure to adorn one of my shelves, and now I kinda want a Joy to match.) Here… Continue reading “Inside Out” book tag

Left Bank Books

Today, I went to a really cool indie bookstore in St. Louis called Left Bank Books.

On the likeability of protagonists

This post idea has been sitting in my drafts for over a year, and I'm finally writing it. Yay NaBloPoMo! This is probably an unpopular opinion to be expressing, but that's also the reason why I want to express it. Since I started this blog, I've been reading way more book reviews than I ever… Continue reading On the likeability of protagonists

Apps for readers and how I use them

There are a ton of apps out there for reading and other book-related fun. Sometimes it can be overwhelming when trying to figure out which ones to use for which purposes, especially if you want to start cataloging. Some people use certain apps differently than others, and it took me some time to in order to finally create a… Continue reading Apps for readers and how I use them
