Not me again with another book tag that I wasn’t tagged to do! This one I am pretty sure I’m going to fail. I don’t want to consider myself a book snob, but I feel very snobby when talking about books, so I’m likely to get that result. But let’s find out! I think this came from Flowers in the Brain (I've seen a few . . .

Hey guys, happy weekend! I know we're all still stuck inside, so hopefully you've got some relaxing, bookish plans to fill your time.

I love a good series. Who doesn't? I've recently started reading a bunch of series and have been plowing through them in record time---Simon Snow, Shades of Magic, Chaos Walking, and To All the Boys I've Loved Before, to name a few.

These are the types of resolutions I'm happy to both set and share. My life revolves around books: taking pictures of books, talking about books, writing about . . .
