20 Books Of Summer~ TBR Challenge

Hello! I’m going back to blogging during my brief summer break- I used to be a blogger in my later teen years but my posts have become sporadic during uni. I tend to read queer upper YA and philosophy, let’s be friends if that sounds like your taste! This challenge is officially called 20 BooksContinue reading “20 Books Of Summer~ TBR Challenge”

Non-Contemporary May Wrap-up!

 Hello, fellow readers! Rather expectedly, everything I finished was queer. I picked up two straight books and DNF’d both of them. I reviewed the contemporary reads of the month already because it’s my favorite genre, but I do read outside of it.  The Giddy Deaths Of The Gays And The Strange Demise Of The Straights, Redfern JonContinue reading “Non-Contemporary May Wrap-up!”

General Update: Native American & Disability Reading Challenge

 You may not have noticed that I usually blog about my WIP once a month. I’m going to stop doing that, at least for this month, and announce my new reading challenge. Two months ago I did a Latinx Book Bingo & Prideathon and was happy that I did. But I don’t want to limit myself, plus it’sContinue reading “General Update: Native American & Disability Reading Challenge”

Binge Or DNF?

House of Silk, Anthony Horowitz-DNF.  Sherlock and Watson are hired to follow the silk road of opium, involving high-ranking lords and mortifying Mycroft. I get enough opium from reading the news, and I don’t want to read any more! This is an uncreative book, and while sounds like Watson, is sometimes clunky.    Moriarty, Anthony Horowitz-slowContinue reading “Binge Or DNF?”

Yoon Is Also A Star

The Sun Is Also A Star, Nicola Yoon, 348 pages, circa 2016, 12/12 I LOVE YOU   Strengths: Diversity! How often do you read about a Jamaican immigrant? Interracial couples that don’t include a white person? Science! People talking about science like normal people, little burbs about different things, like the biochemistry of love andContinue reading “Yoon Is Also A Star”

A Heartbreaking Post Of Staggering Genius

(Trigger warnings, graphic cancer details, anxiety and suicide. This is not meant to reflect my writing style or ideas, but a full imitation of Dave. Also, this is the ’90s and does not reflect the current housing market.) A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius, Dave Eggers, 1995, 9/12  Hello, dickheads.  You will rot the wood from under myContinue reading “A Heartbreaking Post Of Staggering Genius”

Happy (Belated) Sherlock Holmes Day!

  Happy belated Sherlock Holmes Day! (Ok, I had no idea that there was a SH day until yesterday. Now it’s my third favorite holiday, after Halloween and Free Comic Book Day. Hey, it tops Star Wars Day.)  Let’s talk about our favorite, underappreciated Sherlock  Holmes stories. My all-time favorite SH story is The SpeckledContinue reading “Happy (Belated) Sherlock Holmes Day!”

The Return Of Sherlock Holmes, pt.2

  (You can read pt. 1 here) The Adventure Of The Six Napoleons– Yeah, seems obvious when you’ve seen the series. Yeah, murder. Ideal portrait of a journalist, unlike the scavengers usually portrayed.  The Adventure Of The Three Students– Ah, that the very thing that plagues me should be shoved into the Sherlock collection- college. GettingContinue reading “The Return Of Sherlock Holmes, pt.2”

The Return Of Sherlock Holmes, Pt.1

  The Adventure of The Empty House– It’s brave and unusual for Watson to admit that he fainted; usually women are portrayed as the fainters in their time period.  And what happened to Mrs. Watson? The Adventure Of The Norwood Builder– One of the more dramatic and thorough cases, beginning with the accused murderer burstingContinue reading “The Return Of Sherlock Holmes, Pt.1”
