Revisiting a Series I was Obsessed With: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Revisiting a Series I was Obsessed With: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

I haven't read Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series in over a decade. I used to be completely obsessed with this series. I literally helped run a Twilight fan forum. And it's the origin of the moniker I use for almost everything. So, I decided to revisit this once-loved book series to see where my feelings on the series are now. I'm thinking of doing this with a few book series that I used to be obsessed with. But we must begin with the pinnacle obsession of my teenage years.…

If I Could Go Anywhere… My Travel Bucket List

If I Could Go Anywhere… My Travel Bucket List

I am a homebody as well as someone with wanderlust. I want to see the world, but I also enjoy spending time at home, cuddled up on the couch (or at my desk). And almost all of my previous travel adventures have been with my family. But, whenever I did travel, some of my favorite things were traveling somewhere new, learning about the history of those locations, and experiencing new things. The polar opposite of who I am at home. Or, more specifically, the things I would like to do/experience.…

My Thoughts on the Love Triangle Book Trope

My Thoughts on the Love Triangle Book Trope

Oh, the love triangle trope. So many books include this in one way or another to add a dash of drama and conflict. Typically I find it to be done poorly, as you almost always know which individual a character is going to end up with. The other is just there, and either they are used to make the first individual appear to be the better option. Or leads to cheating occurring, which is a massive no for me. There are a few times where this trope was done, where I didn't mind it being included. So, I decided to look at how a few different book series approached this trope and what worked and didn't work for these series.…

Morbid yet Adorable: Cult of the Lamb Review

Morbid yet Adorable: Cult of the Lamb Review

When I first learned of this game (Cult of the Lamb) from TikTok, I knew this game was going to be perfect for me. It's slightly morbid/dark yet incredibly adorable. You play as a lamb that has been saved by a god, but in exchange, you must build a cult and defeat several Bishops who originally tried to kill you. In order to defeat these Bishops, you have to level up your cult by maintaining their faith, hunger, and health in order to gain their devotion that can be used to purchase stronger weapons and spells.…

Reading Guide for the Ruby Dixon Universe

Reading Guide for the Ruby Dixon Universe

Ruby Dixon has a lot of books released and a good majority of them are connected. Now, I haven't read a good majority of these (all the Risdaverse books) as they just didn't interest me at the time. But some of those characters do make appearances in the rest of the universe. This universe is expanding with another spin-off series for the Ice Planet, Not-Hoth, and more books in the Corsairs series, so I'm sure it's going to be more back and forth. But as of September 2022 here is how the books connect as far as the timeline goes. …

Books Series I Loved but can’t Recall the Plot of

Books Series I Loved but can’t Recall the Plot of

I have read a lot of book series in my life, some of them I can recall in perfect detail, and others I couldn't tell you the first thing about if you asked me to discuss the plot. So, I thought I would share some of those series today. As previously stated, I have no memory of any of the plots, so discussing them should be fascinating.…

My Thoughts on the Off-Campus Series by Elle Kennedy

My Thoughts on the Off-Campus Series by Elle Kennedy

I have said it many times, I'm not a massive fan of 'real-life' books. I typically need some element of fantasy or sci-fi. Though the occasional mafia or gang book will sneak their way in as that's so outside of my daily life that I find them enjoyable. But college or sports romance is usually within that realm of books I avoid. But when the first book of the Off-Campus series by Elle Kennedy was on sale for Kindle at the great low price of free, I said heck it. I remembered Angelika Oles mentioning it on her book channel during her book tour, so I thought I would give it a try.…

Looking Back at August 2022

Looking Back at August 2022

This month was a busy one. Things kicked off at work (i.e. finished my main training and started supporting customers), a bunch of family events, a work trip, and more teeth work. I don't think I had a single week where I didn't have something going on. So, this post is probably going to be a bit long as I look back at everything that happened in the last month.…
