Top Ten Tuesday: Social media butterflies

So let’s introduce ourselves… Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This weekly list feature

And so it begins: January 2020 Recap

Pardon the language if you will, but I suspect it’s understandable. Anyway! This is about good things that got done, isn’t it? So let’s talk about the joy I found in January.

Ninth Step Station, Episode 1.2: The Bodiless Arm

So I’m starting to see a grisly theme with these episodes?

Let’s discuss Ninth Step Station.

The Class of 2019

So I can’t sit on this any longer, and it’s looking unlikely that I’ll have time to add anything to this list with only two and a half days left in the year. So it’s time to present the list of my absolute favourite reads of 2019! (In no particular order, because otherwise I’d be preparing this post ALL DAY and into the night…)
