The 12 Days of Litmas (All in One Day)

If you’ve been on BookTube recently, you probably heard about the “12 Days of Litmas,” created by Adrian at Stripped Cover Lit. Unfortunately, I didn’t find out about it until it was already underway, at which point I thought it would be awkward to join in when I would be two days behind everyone else. So instead, we close out the year at Book Geeks Anonymous by answering each of Adrian’s 12 prompts today.

Bookish Links — February 2016

With Harper Lee’s passing earlier this month, the internet (or at least, the nerdy internet circles in which I travel) exploded with tributes to and articles about her. I found this one, about her unpublished true crime novel, especially intriguing. We also lost Umberto Eco this month (on the same day as Harper Lee, noContinue reading “Bookish Links — February 2016”

Where do I even begin? If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time (or if you happen to know me), you probably know already that To Kill a Mockingbird is my favorite novel and that its author Harper Lee is one of my favorite writers. Lee has had a bigger influence on meContinue reading “R.I.P. Harper Lee”

Literary Rediscoveries of 2015

It’s not easy being a classic lit fan: besides having to deal with the rarity of some books, we also miss out on the elation other bookworms feel as they anticipate their favorite author’s next release. Since most of our favorite authors are dead (or just refuse to publish again for years), we’ll never getContinue reading “Literary Rediscoveries of 2015”

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books on My Fall “To Be Read” List

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. 1 & 2: Surprised by Joy and The Weight of Glory by C. S. Lewis I bought these two on impulse about a week ago.

Bookish Links — July 2015

So, maybe Atticus Finch isn’t a racist at all? Here, author Bryan Davis offers an interesting perspective on Atticus as he appears in Go Set a Watchman. Author Eric Metaxas was in Oxford last week to interview several authors and scholars, among them Michael Ward, Peter Hitchens, and Walter Hooper (C. S. Lewis’s former secretary).Continue reading “Bookish Links — July 2015”

First Impressions: Go Set a Watchman

I can’t believe I just typed that title. Go Set a Watchman doesn’t hit the shelves until Tuesday, but the first chapter is already available to read at The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, and The Sydney Morning Herald.

Summer Reading

Seeing as everyone and her sister is writing a summer reading list—and because this is the first time in a long time that I’ve actually planned out my reading—I thought I’d give you a peek at the books that will be crowding my nightstand for the next few weeks. I never understood why one’s readingContinue reading “Summer Reading”

“The Delights of Anticipation”

It’s rare that I hear about a new book before it’s published; it’s even rarer that the book turns out to be something I want to read. So imagine my surprise at finding four yet-to-be-published books that all occupy the space near the top of my “To Be Read” list! Here they are: 1: GoContinue reading ““The Delights of Anticipation””

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Authors I Would Love to Meet

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Normally, I’m too scattered and disorganized to write a Top Ten Tuesday post and have it ready by Tuesday. But since this topic especially piques my interest, I decided to participate again. 🙂
