Wherein Michaela and Gretchen answer the prompts put forth by the Heathers Book Tag.
Wherein me and Michaela let you in on their history with fantasy as well as give you some recommendations of favorite fantasy reads for all ages.
I honestly thought I wouldn’t have content for today, and then Michaela suggested trying the try a chapter tag. I picked 6 books I really need to get reading, and try the first chapter from each one. I actually had a lot of fun with it, and I hope that you’ll let me know if I end up ranking them correctly!
Michaela and I don’t often do book tags, but when we do – WE DO TWO AT ONCE. This was actually much, much harder than I thought it was going to be…
LOOK. MICHAELA AND I MADE A VIDEO TOGETHER! We were tagged by the lovely Amanda Center to do this tag, literally at the moment when Michaela and I were searching for something to do as our first #bibliomansion video. Clearly, Amanda is tuned in to our thoughts. Check out this video for some great horror recommendations as well as a sneak peek into some upcoming Betwixt the Books and Bibliomancy for Beginners plans!
This week’s Betwixt content comes in the form of tags! This is my version of the Ruler of Books Tag, originally created by Ariel Bissett, and Michaela’s is coming later today. Once again, apologies for being super sick during filming, and I’m not quite on the mend yet anyways, but! That doesn’t change a thing about my devotion. 😛

Hey guys! It’s that time again, when Michaela and I do some tags! We’ve been talking a lot recently about TBRs–and how bad we are at them. BUT, they are important and we have very long ones. This is my version of this tag, and Michaela’s will be out soon as well!

Remember when I promised that Michaela from The Pied Piper Calls (and head Bibliomancer) would be doing booktube videos with me? HERE IS PROOF. We finally got around to making our first round of videos, which are both tags to get us into the groove. You can check out our foray into the Bookish Beginnings Tag on Michaela’s blog, and then scroll down to watch the Booktube Newbie Tag entry here.
We apologize for the audio quality! We attempted to go with a certain mic for this video and it went all kinds of wonky, but we’ll have this fixed next time around.
Anyways! Come see why we’ve started this channel, get to know us and watch us laugh at each other!
