Not to Be a Lifestyle Blogger, But...

 ...Sometimes I just wanna blog about my lifestyle, you know? I promise it won't become a constant thing, at least not on here.

See, I fell off the Instagram bandwagon sometime around Christmas, what with, well, everything, and was just about to give up on it. I haven't figured out the magic formula for making it into a proper "bookstagram". Or rather, I know full well what the proper formula isposting constantly, and including full-on book reviewsbut I am far too lazy to employ it. For one thing, I don't enjoy typing long-form on my phone. For another, I don't always have that much to say about what I'm currently reading until I'm done currently reading it. Hence reading round-ups and Rant Rave Reviews. And, perhaps most detrimental of all is the fact that most of the books I read are e-audiobooks, which simply do not photograph, well, at all.

Rant Rave Review: Classic Kid Lit

They're, like, classics for a reason. Today, I rave about Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Heidi, A Little Princess, The Jungle Book, and Winnie-the-Pooh. Get ready for addable dates, hug-shaped books, and... epic fantasy?

Happy New Year!!!

2020 in Hindsight

(I told you I would make that same dumb joke as I made last year.)

Anyway, 2020 is moldering in its grave, so it's time once again to briefly look back before gazing forward.

I won't bore you with all the numerical details, but, in brief, I didn't quite make it to my goal of four writerly activities a week, but considering what a wretched year it was all round, I don't feel bad about that in the slightest. All things considered (a pandemic, working in a city that doesn't require masks, clinical homesickness, riots, politics, wildfires, etc), I think I did rather well.
