The Women’s History Book Tag // Intelligent Female Characters, Award-Winning Books, & Bad-ass Historical Women

In true Caitlin fashion, this post is late.

International Women’s Day has come and gone, but here I am doing the Women’s History Book Tag! But every day is a perfect time to celebrate feminism—which is what I’m telling myself to comfort myself about the fact that this post is late. Thank you so much to Caro @ Bookcheshirecat for tagging me! And thank you to Margaret @ Weird Zeal for creating this wonderful tag that does a great job of highlighting women’s history. 💗

Some of My Good Reading Habits // spreading the self-love for a change

I feel like we readers–and honestly, people in general–tend to focus on the negative side of things.

We always talk about what we’re doing wrong or need to improve on (hello, I’m the Queen of Self-Deprecating Jokes here). So I love that the Good Reading Habits Tag helps us look at the bright side of things for once! Thank you so much to the lovely Olivia @ Purely Olivia for tagging me! Please check her blog out if you haven’t yet—her blog is perfect in every way. 💕

Recommending Books I Gave 3 Stars // the Queen of 3-star Reads has spoken

In case you didn’t know, I am the self-proclaimed Queen of 3-star Reads.

And I have a lot of feelings toward 3-star reads. In the long ongoing “Is 3 stars a good or bad rating” debate, I am a firm member of the “good” side.

But bottom line, it’s a good rating for me. And today I’m going to recommend 10 books that I gave 3 stars.

February Wrap-up // celebrating TWO birthdays (mine + my blog’s) & unexpectedly getting appendicitis

Hello! Sorry for disappearing a bit.

I’ll be explaining why later in this post! But long story short, February was a hectic and eventful month. I celebrated quite a few milestones, and also cried a lot (internally, thankfully, though I did actually cry once). Anyways, I’m just glad that February is behind us, and I’m looking forward to March being better!

Reacting to People’s Assumptions About Me!!! // my love for food, revealing my Hogwarts House & more

My blog turns one TODAY!!

And I’m screaming/crying about it. I know it sounds cliché, but it doesn’t feel like it’s been a year. There are so many things I’d go back and change about how I blogged in those first few months, but I think that I’ve really grown. This blog has become such an integral part of my life, and I’m so happy to celebrate one whole year with it.
