Bookish Twitter: #ThanksgivingABook

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Thanksgiving freebie, so I thought I’d double up and post some of my favorite #ThanksgivingABook from Twitter yesterday. Because people are seriously so creative, and I’m grateful for these bookish twitter trends that happen all the time. Here are my ten favorite!

Non-Spoilery Review: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Non-Spoilery Review: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Guys guys guys guys guys. So I went and saw Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and I’m still just in awe. I just want to go see it again tonight, basically. I 100% loved it. These have been my two tweets since seeing it: I am BLOWN AWAY by #FantasticBeasts. Seriously. — Carlisa Cramer (@carlisajc) November 18, 2016 Current status: Daydreaming about a Newt Scamander — Carlisa Cramer (@carlisajc) November 18, 2016 And I hope I actually have coherent thoughts and things to say about it, but this might just end up being a rambling mess of my feelings and […]

Top Ten Classic Movies I Still Need to Watch

Top Ten Classic Movies I Still Need to Watch

Yaaaay, I’m here. I’m writing. I’m participating in the book blogging community again! Seriously the last time I posted was September something. It’s now Mid-November, so it’s time to return. It’s just been busy. I’m hoping to write a post about what I’ve been up to. But for now? Let’s talk classic movies. Movies. They’re the best, right? I always try to discuss movies on here if I have enough to say. And sometimes . . . I have quite a lot to say. And I go to see movies fairly often. I love the movie theater and the experience of […]

A Shadow Bright and Burning: an ARC Review

A Shadow Bright and Burning: an ARC Review

I was so excited to receive the ARC of A Shadow Bright and Burning in the mail. I’d heard such good things and the cover was beautiful and the plot sounded so unique. I wasn’t disappointed. I really liked it. So let’s talk about it, shall we? My Review First, I loved the main character, Henrietta Howel. She had this strong,  fiery (lol) personality. (Sidenote: Why is “fiery” spelled differently than “fire”??? Okay, anyway). I just really liked her. I felt she was really believable and honest. She kind of has it rough. She starts out as kind of a governess at this strict school, and there are […]

Books I’m Hoping to “Fall” Into In 2016

Books I’m Hoping to “Fall” Into In 2016

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Fall TBR (to-be-read) Books…If you couldn’t tell from my creative but also kind of vague title. So I’m just going to jump into it! Here are ten books that I’m hoping to read this fall!      Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas Pub. Date: September 6, 2016 I know, I know. I still haven’t read this one and it’s been out like two weeks. Last year, I was all about that QOS life, but it’s been kind of busy with school + internship + job + friends + staying alive. You know what I […]

Interview with Becky Wallace and Giveaway!

Interview with Becky Wallace and Giveaway!

About a year or so ago, I won a Twitter contest from Becky Wallace, an author I’d heard of and whose books I wanted to read eventually. She sent me a signed copy of her first book with some swag, and I was so excited! It was my first time winning a Twitter giveaway and I was still a young blogger and hadn’t interacted with a lot of authors, so I was just mostly in shock. And then on the postcard she included, she said that she used to live on the same street that I was living on at the […]
