I started this blog with the idea that I would post once a week, a review of a book that I had read in the week previous. Only current reads would be talked about, 52 of them in a year. Get it? Fifty-two?
But New Relationship Energy is real, y’all, and I want to write ALL THE THINGS. But I don’t have time to read all the things, so there aren’t new books to write about, you know, every day. So, how to scratch that blog itch without writing full reviews?
I scoured the bookblogiverse here at wordpress, and found my answers. Memes! Lists! Questions!
So, here are the current features that we pick from every week:
The Sunday Post is a blog news meme hosted @ Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on the blog and showcase books and things we have received or are looking forward to. Share news about what is coming up on your blog for the week ahead. This is also where I share personal news of the week, if there is any. I’m really very boring.
This feature replaces Sunday Brunch in September, 2021.

Monday Musings (Largely inactive—replaced bt Sunday Post)
Published VERY sporadically, on a Monday
The lone feature that is not directly book-related, Monday Musings is my space to talk about something that I want to talk about that has to do with…well, not reading. Or books. Weird, I know, but I do occasionally have a thought in my head that isn’t about a book.
Sunday Brunch (inactive—replaced by Sunday Post)
