Recommending Some of My Favorite Atmospheric Books

Hello friends! One thing you should know about me is that I'm the kind of reader that can go through a novel without having a clear vision of the characters or the settings described in the novel. I'd say that I barely, if at all, visualize the characters, while I usually have a vague idea… Continue reading Recommending Some of My Favorite Atmospheric Books

How To Get Out of a Blog Burnout

Hello friends! A few months ago, I wrote a post about blog burnouts, in particular about how I have managed to (mostly) avoid them during 6+ years of blogging.

Books With Incredible Families

Hello friends! Recently, I had the idea to share my favorite books that use the found family tropes and as I was working on that post, I realized that there are so many bookish families in general - i.e. books where the characters are related to each other - that I'd love to scream about.… Continue reading Books With Incredible Families

While the blog was very different then and was hosted on blogger, I like to celebrate W&W's blogiversary on the same date, March 15, so… Continue reading Happy Blogiversary to Us, ft.

Five Star Predictions: Will These Books Live Up To Their Hype?

Hello friends! After loving working on my previous five star predictions posts, I knew I wanted to make another two-part series of my predictions, but I also knew that I wanted to mix it up a bit. So, instead of choosing four books I'm 1000% sure I'll love, I consulted my goodreads to-read list and… Continue reading Five Star Predictions: Will These Books Live Up To Their Hype?
