It’s been a LONG time since I’ve done a book tag. And I mean a LONG time. But I recently remembered that it’s halfway through 2022 already– as if time could pass any faster– and I decided I might as well keep the tradition going and do the Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag again.

What does your favorite book say about you? (Part 2)
Nonfiction: the world’s most boring book genre.
… or so I thought.
What does your favorite book say about you?
You know when you read a book that’s so good you wish you’d written it yourself? All the books on this list are like that for me.
It’s (basically) the end of 2021, and that means it’s my very favorite time of the blogging year: the couple weeks where I can make all of my content yearly wrap-ups and talk about my reading stats to my heart’s content.
New release posts have to be among my favorite types of posts to write. And I’m sure you all can tell based on the fact that this is the third iteration of this post I’ve done so far this year.
The mornings are foggy. The leaves are falling. The vibes are immaculate.
Book banning. It’s almost like a curse word. As an advocate for freedom of speech and freedom of thought, I am wholeheartedly opposed to book banning of any kind. Whether it’s for “dangerous ideas”, “political viewpoints”, or “inappropriate content,” I believe that to censor books is to eventually stamp out critical thinking. I believe that
Do you re-read books?
There’s no doubt that the Second World War, by common consensus one of the most devastating major events in the 20th century, is an important thing to read about. However, the historical fiction market is completely saturated with WW2 books– and a very specific brand of WW2 books at that.
Nonfiction gets a bad rap. So many people (including past me) automatically dismiss it as “boring”, but lately I’ve come to realize that nonfiction is only boring if you’re not reading the right books.
Summer is the undisputed season for contemporary romance. Or just plain romance-less contemporary. (It’s scientific)
Believe it or not, this post was inspired by a BuzzFeed quiz. (I would link the quiz in question, but I could not find it)
When will everyone realize that the middle of the year falls at the very end of June/the very beginning of July, and not the middle of June? I don’t know, but it won’t stop me from posting all my mid-year reading stuff whenever in the summer I feel like it.
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a reader in possession of good taste must be in want of a killer opening line.
Yes, I know did one of these posts back in December, but more new releases have been coming under my radar recently, and so here we are back and better than ever!
I read MANY different types of books. I’ve never been one to limit myself to a single genre, and I often find myself bouncing back and forth between several different favorites. Today, I decided to share some of my favorite books across the genre spectrum, because I’m sure that’s what you 100% definitely want to read right now.
Short stories are CRIMINALLY underrated. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever written about short stories on this blog. I do read them sometimes, but definitely not as often as I read full-length novels. But I don’t think they get enough appreciation.
With June quickly approaching, we’re almost halfway through 2021, which seems insane, but at least so far it’s been slightly better than 2020. Right?
