Challenged | Maggie’s Lofty 2017 Reading Goals

There is no shortage of reading challenges taking place in 2017 – so many lasting throughout the year are already cropping up all around blog land! Although I historically am not too hot at actually completing challenges for which I sign up, I absolutely adore starting with a clean reading slate each year. Maybe 2017…

WIN! │ January Book of Choice Giveaway Hop

I ♥ giveaways! I adore entering them, naturally, but even more I enjoy hosting them! A consummate gift giver, I probably get at least equally as excited as the winners of my giveaways – surprising others is my favorite! This go around, I’m joining in on the January Book of Choice Giveaway Hop, hosted by…

Claire’s 2016 End of the Year Book Survey

Thank you to Maggie for telling me about The Perpetual Page-Turner’s End of the Year Book Survey! Filling this out was a lot of fun and gave me the opportunity to both reflect what I’ve read this year and also got me excited for what’s to come in 2017! This post is pretty long, so I’m…

Obsession Confession | Predicting My Obsessions In The New Year

Somehow, the end of this nightmarish year has arrived (finally, thank god!) and I’m once again processing that fact like a dumbfounded dork. Nevertheless. 2017 is looking like it’s shaping up to be a year filled with rabid obsession! A lot of great things are set to be released in the coming year and I,…

Maggie’s 2016 End of Year Book Survey

I’m so excited it’s time for The Perpetual Page-Turner’s 7th Annual End of Year Book Survey! Thanks so much to Jamie for continuing the questionnaire tradition! It’s so hard to believe that the end of 2016 is upon us, fading soon into 2017. It’s just unbelievable to me how quickly time seems to pass as…

In a galaxy far, far away… | Space Recs

I saw Rogue One in theaters today and have not been able to get it out of my mind, so I decided to recommend some space sagas for anyone else out there who has a Star Wars hangover! If you love the visual aspect of Star Wars… …then you might like the graphic novel series Saga by Brian…

Let’s see what’s been occupying this particular madwoman’s mind… Books *hangs head in shame* Um…Sooooo…I have a confession…This past week my reading slump majorly caught…

Lila Wonders…Can You Like A Book That You Also Find Problematic?

Recently there’s been a lot of talk surrounding problematic books and what authors, bloggers, and readers should be doing about those books. Inevitably, the question was raised: is it possible to like a book, yet still recognize it as problematic. So today I’m going to be exploring that question. Bear in mind, I’m not writing…

Maggie Reviews │ Anna Dressed in Blood

I wanted to love Anna Dressed in Blood SO bad. Unfortunately, I believe I set my expectations for the book way too high. Judging from its title and creepy cover, I anticipated being scared to death while reading. There are some admittedly creepily gross parts, but there are few. Since I rarely read summaries prior…
