10 Year Challenge!
This tag was created by Rincey Reads over on YouTube! I saw Mary @ Mary and the Words do this, and I wanted to give it a try as well!
Like Mary, I’m not going to go back 10 years. I can’t remember what I ate for breakfast this morning, let alone what I read in 2011. Instead, I’m going as far back as when I started this blog, which was 2015. This was around the time I started using Goodreads to track the books I’ve read, so I thought it would be a good year to look back on to see what has changed and what has remained the same.

20 Books of Summer: How Did I Do?
Back in June, I decided to take part in the “20 Books of Summer” reading challenge by Cathy @ 746 books. What I liked about this challenge is that it’s super flexible and can cater to any type of reader. You can change your TBR in the middle of the challenge, and you can change the number of books you want to read. I ended up going with 10 books, but in the middle of the challenge I decided to change the books I wanted to read.Continue reading

Seventeen-year-old Keralie Corrington may seem harmless, but in fact, she’s one of Quadara’s most skilled thieves and a liar. Varin, on the other hand, is an honest, upstanding citizen of Quadara’s most enlightened region, Eonia. Varin runs afoul of Keralie when she steals a package from him, putting his life in danger. When Varin attempts to retrieve the package, he and Keralie find themselves entangled in a conspiracy that leaves all four of Quadara’s queens dead.

Rupaul’s Drag Race Book Tag
I’m not a huge reality TV watcher, but something about RuPaul’s Drag Race is so captivating and entertaining. I’ve been a fan since Season 8, and it’s one of the only things keeping me sane during this lockdown and pandemic.
There seems to be a few different RPDR book tags out there, but I decided to go with the one created by Cats and Camera.
YA books with male protagonists, pt. 2

To be honest, I had a hard time finding books with male protagonists, but it’s been a few years and I thought I’d update the list.Continue reading
