recent tbr additions!!

Every bookworm I know has a love-hate relationship with their TBR pile. On the one hand, they’re always endless with millions of things to read.

Etymology: Magic

Etymology: Magic

Since I’m starting to intro some witchy-type postings to this blog, I thought I’d introduce something I’ve been doing on my Tumblr, which is the etymology of different words relating to magic/witchcraft/related things.

The Writer’s Tag

The Writer’s Tag

NaNoWriMo: Week 1 Update

NaNoWriMo: Week 1 Update

I almost titled this post “NaNoWriMo: How I’m Doing” but then did not because I realized I’d have to subtitle it “How I’m NOT Doing” because I’ve basically quit. How am I doing? Well, after approximately only two whole days of writing Queer Bookish WIP, I decided to break up with it. I have written […]

Hello, and welcome to my first tarot reading. This is actually a recycled post from my book Tumblr (aka booklr) that I posted a while ago. It is my very first tarot spread, both in general and for a book! I decided for this reading to do a three card spread to read the situation-action-outcome of […]

blogging things I feel bad about

blogging things I feel bad about

I love blogging, but blogging is not always a smooth sailing type of thing. I would like to imagine that every blogger has things they’re insecure about, so hopefully this post will resonate with some people and not offend too many. I care a lot about how a person’s blog looks. If your blog looks super […]
