My Summer 2020 TBR

This Friday marks the real first day of summer, and I am not that thrilled about it, in all honesty. I’ve always hated summer and hot weather and if I could afford it (and there wasn’t a global pandemic) I would hop over to the southern hemisphere during their winter just so I could avoid the heat. I live in a house that is over a hundred years old, has a ton of insulation and no air conditioning, so summer is just awful for me. But anyway, since my hobbies involve staying at home and reading, summer is a great…

Animal Crossing New Horizons Book Tag

I have played Animal Crossing every single day ever since I got it in April, and I have absolutely no regrets about that.

This post is only comprised of books that I want to read and haven’t read yet, but here are some videos and posts by black…

5 Reasons Why I Won’t Follow Your Blog

On Tuesday, I spread a lot of passion and positivity by talking about my love for monsters (which you can read if you clickity-click *wink*). Today, I want to have an informative (I hope) and slightly passive-aggressive talk about something a little less positive. I want to talk about why I’m not going to follow your blog. We can’t be followed by every single blogger in the world and not everyone is going to be mutual with us. There are a lot of reasons why someone else won’t follow a blog, but these are my main five reasons. And no,…
