Required Reading: Primer for the Imagination

Just be contrary, I considered posting about why I don’t like reading challenges, but I already had a different scheme in mind. So we’ll leave that for another day. I was looking at my bookshelves for novels that would satisfy our upcoming book video topic per usual and was reminiscing about how much I loved…

Read-A-Thons and #BTAT17

A few weeks ago, the Booktube-A-Thon went down. The seven days of reading challenges, reading sprints, and feeling connected to people across to globe as they participate as well. I’ve participated on the side several years in a row, though the video challenges aren’t quite my thing, and I absolutely love it. I tend to…

I’ve been going through and re-reading some of my favorite books from my school years, and thought I’d share some of the realizations I’ve…

I have a prose bias.

I am a prose person. I willing admit I actively overlook what would be for me normal reading detractors (angsty love triangles, lost royalty, the peasant with great purpose, and so on and so forth in the colonized lands of imagination) when the author is a artist with their prose. In my meager efforts to…

Chelsea’s Book Haul!
