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. đź’—

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. If I rated a book 3 stars, I still liked it and recommend it! Maybe I just didn’t enjoy it enough to rate it higher or there were some flaws that served as a detriment to my enjoyment.

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 clichĂ©, 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.

January Wrap-up // Meh Books, Sucked at Blogging, But a Good Month Life-wise

The first month of the new year and decade is over!

Surprisingly, January didn’t completely fly by, and I had a decent month overall. I really hope to maintain this energy all throughout 2020, because I will scream if 2020 isn’t my year. (Also, sorry I’ve been absent lately. I’m busy and my mental health is killing me—just fun things.)
