Hello, hello. Yes, I'm still alive...sigh. A better explanation will come in a subsequent post. Until then, get strapped in for a wild* (*read: uneventful) journey through my 2017 reading goals. 

My goals were simple, if a bit ambitious, give...

Yes, I missed an update on Monday, but there was a reason. Um...there had to be a reason...right?

Aaaaanyway, I'm here to tell you that I have finished the Upside of Unrequited (loved, loved, loved) and I was planning to continue reading Feral (which took second place on my 'what to read' poll) but, I am more in the mood for something a lot less g...

How a TWITTER POLL saved my life

Posted by Dee ^_^ on May 5, 2017 at 5:00 PM Comments comments (0)

It's finally happened. I woke up feeling ready to get some words in, but, I was faced with a dilemma. I wanted to read EVERYTHING all at once. So, what do you do at that point? Well, I took it to twitter. Because choices are hard and I'm an indecisive person, to my very core.

I gave my followers four options: F...

AKA My February Wrap-up and Current Reads

It has been a minute and a half since I've posted, but life has been more than a little hectic for me. If you don't believe me, I think this wrap-up, and the fact that there will be no March wrap-up, speaks for itself. You can't have a wrap-up if you didn't read anything to begin with. Honestly, the only reason this is so late was because I hoped to comb...

Prep with Me!

Camp NaNoWriMo is almost upon us, and I thought I'd update you on how my Camp Prep is going/has gone.

At the point of writing, I have finally created a world map for my story. Prior to this point, I just had the names of the locations and a vague idea in my mind of what everything looked like in relation to other areas of interest. Now, I have a visual and physical copy of my setting...

AKA I'm doing Camp NaNoWriMo

It's almost April, and I have done it again. I signed up for another writing challenge that, this time, I am determined to accomplish. The difference this time, is that I'll be working on the same project and, instead of a word goal, I'm doing an accumulated hours challenge. 

For anyone who may not be familiar, Camp NaNoWriMo "is a virtual ...

So I was going through my YouTube subscriptions when I happened upon a video of an unboxing...and I was inspired.

At the very top of that list is Call the Number Box. The fact that it actually ships to the Caribbean and includes literature from the Caribbean has me so overjoyed. We get included in so little, and usually only when food or music is concerned, ...
