Whenever life gets particularly difficult there’s only one question we can ask: What Would Barb Do?

The Book of Barb is an ode to all things Barb, our favourite minor character from the ever popular Netflix series Stranger Things. I know I loved with Barb the moment she appeared on screen: her clear caring and love for her best friend Nancy, her logic and worry about following the rules and not wanting to give in to peer pressure but wanting to keep Nancy safe, her demise at the demigorgon when she did NOTHING WRONG!

Sorry, I’m still upset about that. Continue reading

I absolutely adored Romeo and/or Juliet by Ryan North, my first time reading a Choose-Your-Own Adventure book, and now want to make every review I write chooseable! It’ll make writing reviews twice as long, but it will make it more fun and entertaining for you bookworms right? So, without further ado, let’s start the review! (rhyming couplets for the win!)

Bookmark Monday

Bookmark Monday is a weekly feature by Guiltless Reader.

Happy Bookmark Monday bookworms! It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these, huh?

I haven’t been having much luck with bookstagram lately. The algorithm is really messing with my likes, not that it should matter, but it’s frustrating going from posting pictures and some people seeing it to no one seeing them.

I guess you can see them here, and that’s something! Continue reading

Top Ten Tuesday

Top 10 Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish meme/feature created by The Broke and the Bookish but is now hosted by The Artsy Reader

Hello bookworms! Sorry for going MIA last week, I got really unmotivated in posting things online, but did a great job procrastinating on social media so I guess there’s that!

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day which makes today Galentine’s Day or Palentine’s Day if you’re into celebrating those. If not, it is Top Ten Tuesday, one constant thing we can count on. Which means it’s time to talk about this week’s theme!

So this week’s theme is love based (obviously) and as you know if you’ve visited this blog often, I am not a huge romance reader. Sure, I was in my younger days, but the tropes really annoy me. That doesn’t mean I don’t get a little swoony over my OTP’s every now and again, so that’s what I focused on this week!

(so I could make it a full ten I focus on some favourite scenes with some of the OTP’s).

Howdy bookworms, how’s January been for you? One of my co-workers described January as the Monday of the year and I’ve never heard a more accurate description for the month.

But it’s February on Thursday, and that means the month of love and chocolate and another holiday to look forward too (if you’re into Valentine’s Day that is).

Anyways, I’m rambling. I guess it’s time to get into some Top Ten (okay five) Tuesday! This week’s theme was a lot of fun, enjoy! Continue reading
