The curse of Mandy's Discussion Posts have struck again! I've lured you into a false sense of security, thinking, goodness, we're good! We're all free from her ramblings. AND THEN THEY ARE BACK IN ACTION. Speaking of striking again, I was scrolling through Twitter the other day, minding my own business when BAM! A spoiler … Continue reading Discussion Post: What do you do with spoilers?
Summer is always the times that the feels come out for me. It's just something about the season. It gets warmer, it's lighter longer, and it's full of great summer things like camping, sitting out on the porch to read, and fun adventures to the beach or zoo or other outdoor things (i.e. things Mandy … Continue reading Discussion Post: How realistic does a contemporary need to be?
Book Princess Reviews entered the book blog world in 2016 and underwent a few changes here and there since its birth. (Namely, Mandy used to drop three posts a day like a maniac. Did she even sleep? Who knows!) But now. . . It's time to say goodbye forever. WHOA. Okay. Did I give you a … Continue reading Goodbye Book Princess Reviews! 👋
Mandy is back with yet another discussion post where we ramble about nothing for a long time, and then do absolutely nothing with this knowledge because that’s the fun part, right? Right.

As promised, here's another veering-off-topic rambling post from the still sick Sha. The weather outside is getting warmer and warmer and now I'm cooped up inside, wracked with shivers. At least I know my TV is getting its use? Today I caught up on the new episode of Brooklyn 99. Favourite character? Raymond Holt, hands down. … Continue reading TV Time with Sha (Part 2)
I've had fairytale retellings on my mind for a while now. I've been reading a few, reading the originals, and kind of am ready for a big ole fairytale binge to get myself back in the princess spirit.

The word responsibility has been bouncing around my head in the past few days as I tried to figure out the last UN right that I had on the list of topics for this month.
