Reactionary Tales

Facebook Friday 7/21/17

Hey, hey! It’s Facebook Friday!

Facebook Fridays is a weekly segment of RT where I share some fun stuff I observed on Facebook this past week. I share a fun meme or screenshot, a video that resonated in some capacity and a photo of my own.

So let’s get to it!

This past week has been a slow one. I didn’t even get to be on Facebook as much as I normally am because of surprise party shenanigans and hosting my mother in my home for a week (post about that coming soon). However, I did get to share this meme yesterday and it was totally relatable these past two days:[...]

Red Wolf

Red Wolf

In the spirit of Game of Thrones returning, today’s endangered animal is the red wolf. The most well known wolf species is lupus or the gray wolf but the red wolf belongs to species rufus. Gray wolves are found throughout North America and Euraisia. They are not always gray in color. For example the Arctic gray wolf can be gray or white. Red wolves are endemic to to a small area of coastal North Carolina. You will not see a red wolf anywhere else in the world (legally).[...]

How I Choose My Books Tag

Sometime last week I think, the wonderful Noriko at Diary of a Bookfiend nominated me for this tag. If you haven’t met her yet you need to! She’s so sweet, write fantastic book reviews and has recently been introducing us to different aspects of Japanese culture. Go over there and click the follow button right away!

I decided to be different and instead of pulling pictures from the web, I took pictures of my literal books off my shelf. Hope you enjoy![...]

I Messed Up Book Tag

I was tagged by the wonderful Stephanie over at Stephanie’s Novel Fiction. If you haven’t met Stephanie yet, you should. I’ve gotten to know her these past few weeks and she’s such a great person! She’s so smart too! She primarily blogs about books but she also gives us tidbits into her life as a teacher, wife and mother. Check her out and hit that follow button!

Thank you to my buddy James for nominating me for this award. If you do not know James by now then you’re late to the party and need to come join us ASAP. He operates over at This is My Truth Now and he’s very intelligent and fun person to talk to. I always look forward to all his posts and we communicate regularly outside of WordPress.

What Is This Award:

This award is for bloggers who strive to write for everybody, and no matter how many viewers they get, make an impact on a reader. This award is an expression of gratitude to the nominee. It should be awarded to anybody that you choose deserves it, and it doesn’t mean that they must have hundreds of followers and likes.[...]

Sunshine Blogger Award 2&3

Hey, hey! It’s Monday! Last week I was nominated and tagged in a few things so for the next couple of days, it will probably be me catching up to the wonderful people who had me in mind for these things.

I was lucky to be nominated for Sunshine Blogger Award by two great bloggers; Roda @ Growing Self and Cherylene @ Living vs. Existing. Both these beautiful ladies have really great blogs dedicated to sharing tips, stories and general advice to make us all better people. I thank you both and really appreciate having met you two in this wonderful corner of the interwebs. I’m sure a lot of you probably know both of them but if you haven’t met them yet, check out their sites and hit that follow button! You will not regret reading the content they both share with us on a regular basis 🙂[...]

Facebook Fridays 7/14/17

TGIF!

Facebook Fridays is a weekly segment of RT where I share some fun stuff I observed on Facebook this past week. I share a fun meme or screenshot, a video that resonated in some capacity and a photo of my own.

First up, two bookish memes that were shared to me. The second one was particularly hilarious because I was talking to my mother on the phone when she read it and she thought I was posting dirty things on Facebook and was ready to give me the riot act even though I’m a grown woman.[...]

Fight Like a YA Girl Tag

I haven’t done a book related post in a while so of course when the wonderful Patty @ Moonshine’s Corner tagged me for this tag I decided why not! If you haven’t met Patty yet you need to head over there. She’s super awesome. She writes book reviews as well as occasional life adventures updates.

I’ll admit, this tag was hard to do. I had to consult the back pages of my Goodreads to find some of these because I haven’t read any YA in a really long time. Some of my answers are NA because I just didn’t know what else to pick and I read some of then as a teenager and liked them so they’re considered YA in my eyes.[...]

Great Pacific Garbage Patch

I’m going to mix it up again this week and talk about something that’s pretty gruesome.

Have you ever heard of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch? If not, you’re in for an enlightening ride.

When I first learned about it, I was told it was this big island of trash that was “larger than the state of of Texas” or “three times the size of the United Kingdom!” The sad truth is, no one will never really know the size because it’s constantly growing.[...]

Live, Learn and LOL

There must be something in the air I tell ya. I’m full of stories this week! I promise you, dear readers, I do not make these things up. Sometimes I surprise myself with how fantastical my stories sound but this is my life for you!

My mother is coming to town today and has decided she wants to stay at the ‘El hotel aka our house. Fun fact, me and my husband rhyme. Both our names end in “el” (his with two L’s). We have a lot of nicknames similar to Brangelina unfortunately. Guess that’s what happens when you’ve been together 10 years.[...]
