“Anything But Books” Tag

I haven’t done one of these in a while…and it figures the first one I’m going to do has literally nothing to do with books!

I’m just contrary that way, I suppose.

So, really this is just a quick tag to talk about myself. Do I like to get high and watch Scooby Doo? Yes! Do I know how to immigrate someone into Canada? Yes, again!

I have so many layers. My plot thickens…

Ugh, no. Forget I said that. Just read on for a few tidbits about me and forget about my pot or how thick it is.

#ThrowbackThursday: 3.15.18

I love this idea, created by It’s Book Talk. It’s a way to share books we love that were read forever ago, that maybe didn’t get a review posted. Or to highlight books still sitting in our TBRs that have been there a while…

…I have a lot of those, because I’m super talented at buying books and finding new books that I want to read, but my ability to read them at the same rate is like a ratio of 100:1.

It’s the thought that counts, or something…

Book Tag: One Lovely Blog Award

My Australian book buddy Greyson Reads tagged me for this one. She said I was “lovely and hilarious”, and obviously flattery works really well on me! Thanks, G!


There are some rules…

  • Thank the person who nominated you for the award (well, duh.)
  • Display the banner/sticker/logo on your blog. (sure!)
  • Share 7 facts or things about yourself. (are there 7 facts about me? *thinks hard*)
  • Nominate up to 15 bloggers that you admire and inform the nominees (absolutely not.)

Ok, here we go. Don’t get weirded out and leave me once you know me better.

Book Tag: Seven Deadly Sins

Hands up if you love the movie Se7en!

Well, it’s one of my favourite movies of all time (naturally), and in honour of that for literally no reason, it’s time for a new round of book tag. This time the Seven Deadly Sins edition!

*the crowd goes wild*

Jeez, guys. Calm down.

Book Tag: Weather in Books

Greyson, over at Greyson Reads, was sweet enough to tag me in the Weather in Books book tag! I have no idea what I’m doing because I’m such a book blogging n00b, but thanks for putting some faith in my blogging skills, Greyson! She’s cool and if you’re reading this then you should definitely hit up her reviews.

Okay, let’s do this! *solo air guitar noises*

The Secret of the 2nd Blog Post

Oh lort, that title is pure cheese. But deleting it and thinking of something else is too much trouble, so you’re going to read it and you’re going to like it!

Anyway, if you’ve read my About section, you know I am only the mystery reader I am today because of Nancy Drew (I know that’s so cliche, but I can’t change my history, nerds!) So, in honour of those classic Carolyn Keene novels, here is today’s Bookworm post – alternate Nancy stories that never existed, but definitely should have.

Inauguration Day

…and just like Trump, I’m sure the audience for my first official blog post is going to be the biggest blog crowd ever. EVER. Where’s my own personal Sean Spicer when I need him? Or like, the actual Sean Spicer. Good Ol’ Spicey doesn’t seem to be doing much these days, maybe he could use the work, here reporting on my…blog post…crowd…you know what? Never mind.

So, after much hmmm-ing and uhmmm-ing, and also sometimes not thinking about it for long stretches of time, I have decided to take my casual book blogging over from tumblr.com and create something a little bit more “hobbyist.” Bare with me as I work out the kinks…or don’t. Whatever. You do you, booboo.

I’m just here to have fun and read and be immersed in murder. Like, other people’s murders. Not my own, and certainly not ones I’m involved in. Just to be clear.

I am a textbook true crime addict, and my genre of preference when I pick up a story is anything dark and twisty, so a combination of the two is exactly what you will find around these parts.
