It occurred to me today that while I post a lot of reviews, I have never actually defined my rating system. Allow me to elaborate: 1 - Awful. A book that I was likely forced (or asked) to read, and which I could not finish. (EX: Pretty much anything Shakespeare. Sorry, classic lovers. I just… Continue reading Book Rating Guide (with examples)
Like I said in my last post, books are a key part of my wish list each year. I spend a lot on books, and it's always nice when I can save a bit by receiving some as gifts. Like every book lover, I have a pretty hefty wishlist, so I try to limit the… Continue reading On the Sixth Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me… Books, Books, Books!
Seeing as the gift in the original song is 5 golden rings, I thought it was only fitting to write about the things on my list this holiday season. So many of the things I want are practical, things that I need to buy myself, but would rather not. It's sort of sad, when you… Continue reading On the Fifth Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me… A Wishlist!
You will never meet another human who watches as many festive films as I do. I'm talking as of November 1st, all I watch are Christmas-themed movies. I know what you're thinking... There just aren't that many movies to last a person nearly 2 months of marathoning. Right? Wrong. Typically, I save all the mainstream,… Continue reading On The Fourth Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me… Holiday Films!
I won't lie to you guys... I've been listening to Christmas carols since mid-November (right around the time I decorated my house), but I know premature festive music is a source of pain and agony for many non-elf humans, so I typically contain the carols to my car. I'm the person who loves when the stores… Continue reading On the Third Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me… Christmas Carols!
Every year, like clockwork, I make a homemade, completely from scratch, gingerbread house. I design my creation, cut out the pieces, and build away. Since I don’t actually like the taste of gingerbread, I always make my house the first weekend of December so I can admire it all month long. Some of my past… Continue reading On The Second Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me… A Gingerbread House!
First off, HAPPY FIRST DAY OF DECEMBER, EVERYONE! I wish I knew who came up with the Advent Calendar, because I love them. Nothing gets me into the holiday spirit like shopping for my yearly Advent Calendar(s). Every year, I select two lucky versions to be mine throughout the month of December. Yes, two. One,… Continue reading On the First Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to me… Advent Calendars!
If you pay any attention to my blog, it's pretty easy to notice that I've been distracted this November. It's something about the Christmas season that sends me into hibernation mode. All I can think about is Christmas movies, baking, and decorations. I forget about books, writing, and non-festive humans. I simply do not have… Continue reading Farewell, November. Hello, December!
