Flights of Fancy | Characters I Couldn’t Steal

I’ve got a new topic for you, one that might be a little strange, but it’s one my friend and I talk about.  Over and over.  A pretty much identical conversation each time it happens. We randomly start talking about the fictional characters that we love so much we want to rip them out of the […]

Monthly Media Mashup

I’ve been a television watching machine these days!  I can’t believe we’re already halfway through Supernatural season 11!  Thank goodness we only have about a month left before season 12 hits Netflix because I’m going to be so sad when this ends!  I’m pretty addicted.  I don’t want to be caught up! Anyway, outside of […]

5 Star Reads    4-4.5 Star Reads      3-3.5 Star Reads    Rereads     The High’s & Low’s! I had a good month!  Surprisingly, since everything in my personal life was pretty hectic.  I’m astonished that I managed to read 15 books. I think the most exciting part of my reading month was that I […]

In Which I Compare Myself to YA Parents

Today, for the first time, I allowed my daughter to walk with her friends (in a group) to the gas station up the road.   I’m sure there are people out there who would shrug like it’s no big deal, and probably people who think I’m nuts.  I generally fall into the second category.  She’s […]

The Horror Movie Book Tag

Is it unusual that I don’t watch Horror movies at all, but I’ve been looking forward to this tag!  I don’t watch horror movies, but I like horror movie conversations.  I think it’s my husband’s fault.  He’s crazy about horror movies, and occasionally he makes me watch them (with my eyes closed) and he’ll get […]

WWW Wednesday #6

Welcome to my first WWW Wednesday! WWW Wednesday is a meme that is currently hosted by the wonderful bloggers at Taking on a World of Words, but it was originally created at A Daily Rhythm. It’s a simple, but fun, meme where you answer three questions on your own blog, and then leave a link to your […]

500 Followers!

I woke up this morning to a big beautiful notification on my phone.  I’ve finally hit 500 WordPress followers! I’m so proud of Birdie Bookworm, but I would be just as proud of it if I only had 5 followers.  Knowing there are others out there who were interested enough to follow me makes everything […]

The Nintendo Book Tag

Hey Icebreaker694, thank you so much for tagging me in the Nintendo Book Tag!  I loved Nintendo when I was younger, and would love to get my hands on some of those older games, like Super Mario Bros.  This one sounds like so much fun.  🙂 NES (Nintendo Entertainment System): A classic you want to […]

Top Ten Fandom Tuesday Eve!!

Sometimes I wonder how I can still be into things like ‘Fandoms’ at my age.  I mean, I’m 38 years old.  Should I even know what Fandoms are?  My mother would say I should have outgrown this obsession.  I’m not sure I want to.  I like fantasizing and ‘fangirling’ about things I love. So, here […]

March 2017 Recap & What’s Coming Next

5 Star Reads   4-4.5 Star Reads      3-3.5 Star Reads   The High’s & Low’s! Obviously I had a lot 4 star reads.  They were all good, I enjoyed them.  My highlights in March were Mercy Thompson, but that’s obvious.  I think the biggest shocker was my obsession with The Foxhole Court.  More than […]

Burn, Rewrite, Reread Book Tag

This tag sounds like so much fun!  Thank you so much to The Sassy Book Geek for tagging me.  I started to do this tag based on books I loved, but I couldn’t.  There are no books I love that I’d want to burn. I’m using the Goodreads tip below.  I’d rather it be truly […]

Happy Sunday everyone!  It’s Tag Day here at Birdie Bookworm! I wanted to thank Meghan at Whimsical Explorations & Reviews for tagging me in the Book Blogger Insider Tag, especially since these types of tags are my favorite.  I love the questions that are geared more toward learning about each other outside of a favorite book […]

The Best of Friends

This weekend my family suffered a blow when my daughter Alex (Baby Chick) went into our bird room and discovered that her bird, Nemo, had passed away in the night.  I know that not everyone can understand the bond that a person can have with a bird, but it’s real and just as tangible as a bond […]

Top Ten Tuesday | Beloved Songs

This list was SO hard to come up with!  I have so many songs I love; songs that never get obnoxious, no matter how many times I play them.  I couldn’t even have a runner up list, it would have to be a ‘Part 2’ instead. Also, this list is in no particular order.  I could never […]
