When your cat is more photogenic than you

Life

Ever experienced envy at the fact that no matter how you photograph your pet, no matter what absolutely ridiculous pose they are in, they still manage to look cuter than you? If so, I feel you. I delete basically every selfie, and then turn around and take 100+ photos of my flawless feline child. I can put on makeup, find perfect lighting, try and fix my hair, and take a…

Books for Breakfast – Throne of Glass Series

Book Reviews

Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire, & Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas I'm going to include the first four books in this one post, so that I don't drag it all out. I haven't read the fifth book yet, but it is on my shelf. I'm waiting a bit till the release of the sixth book, so the wait doesn't kill me. (Waiting for Sarah…

WW#7

Life

Whew, it's been ages since I posted about the wedding at all. Although a BUNCH of things have been done since my last post, which was probably about either A) The wedding convention I attended with my mum or B) The issues with wedding dress shopping. Now, months and months later, and now it is actually the same year as the wedding, I've buckled down and started to get more…

Bookworm Origin Story

Blogging, Life

What makes someone a bookworm? Can you quantify it? Is there a bookworm checklist? I couldn't tell you the exact moment where I realized I was a bookworm, but it probably came from someone using that word to describe me. I don't know how many books I needed to read before the adjective stuck, or how much time I needed to spend on reading before everyone around me started to…

Books for Breakfast Hag-seed

Book Reviews

Disclaimer: I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.  I'm a big fan of Atwood, although I wasn't always. My fiancé actually introduced me to her through her trilogy Oryx & Crake, which I've written about a few times on the blog. Since then, I've also read The Handmaid's Tale. (which everyone, I'm sure, has heard of) Alex has read Stone Mattress (well…

Books for Breakfast – Library of Souls

Book Reviews

I'm going to try out a new way of doing this series where I only talk about one book each post, as well as dropping the numbering system so I can actually go back and know what book I was talking about in each segment! The final book in the Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children trilogy! I've had this on my shelf for what feels like forever and ever,…

New Year, New Bookworm

Blogging, Life

I fell off the map towards the end of 2016. I had post drafts all scheduled, but just never got around to fully photographing/editing/writing them up to post them. With November and December being full of family visits, traveling, holidays, and the like, I just couldn't find time to manage a blog on top of everything else! (I feel like that may sound a bit of a cop-out, but I'm…

Books for Breakfast #114

Book Reviews

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo & Death and the Afterlife by Clifford A. Pickover I had heard good things about this book, but the real selling point for me was how downright ominous the book itself looked as a hardback. I NEEDED it on my shelf! Little did I know how intensely I'd fall into the series.... The book takes place in the same world that Bardugo's other series…

Books for Breakfast #113

Book Reviews

Been wondering if I should change the titles of this series and stop counting it, once I passed 100, it started to feel a little silly. What do you think? Maybe I should call it "Books for Breakfast - Title of book(s)" instead? Ms. Marvel Vol. 3 by G. Willow Wilson & Lullaby by Check Palahniuk I haven't read a bound volume in a while, and I had nearly completely forgotten…

Wedding Convention (WW#6)

Life

I had a post on Monday that was going to be about coffee table books, but then I got home from a weekend of camping, hiking mountains, and having no wifi/cell service, and just didn't have it in me to complete that post, so instead, here we are on Wednesday with a post about a Wedding Convention I attended back in October with my mom! Now, I admit, I probably…
