Bridgerton Thoughts

When I saw the previews back in December 2020, I wanted to watch it and just should have immediately done so because after it came out, everyone on the internet, ew folks, don’t embarrass yourselves. So I will never fully rid myself of that icky feeling. And I couldn’t avoid it. I’ve actively avoid reading… Continue reading Bridgerton Thoughts

A Literary Christmas

I’m linking up here for A Literary Christmas. I think I’ll also make this list a page. Whew, this list took well, hours I think, because I wanted to format it, so that if I went to the library, I could find books faster. I also wanted plenty to choose from this year and beyond.… Continue reading A Literary Christmas

My (Somewhat) Dramatic Autumn Thus Far

October = Castlemania. This time I started from the beginning (so good) and watched into season 6 thinking that maybe I’d be able to watch the whole show. Then 7 happened, and there is the sour note (and I’ve plenty to saw, so prepared to be bored by a few more Castle posts coming up).… Continue reading My (Somewhat) Dramatic Autumn Thus Far
