What We’re Actually Reading: Spring 2016 Roundup

April 6, 2016 by


I’ve read four books of my goal to read twenty books this year! Not counting books we read for this blog. Obviously. The word “goal” implies some kind of personal achievement. Jane Eyre What’s It About? It’s Jane Eyre, y’all. What’s It Like? Is it weird if my favorite parts of this were the first […]

Next week we’ll be leaving behind Left Behind (yes, this post will be nothing but jokes about the name “Left Behind”, so get ready).

These are delightful options, but I don’t want to wait months to do the latest Crossfire. I […]

December 28, 2015 by


How’s everyone enjoying their holidays? Are you excited for some off-brand fun from the half of BBGT who gets really, really obsessive about music? Probably! I listen to lots of music. You’d think that, because this is such a huge passion of mine, I would be all over doing the annual top ten albums post, but I […]
