Inconceivable! It’s a Princess Bride Book Tag!

Posted September 25, 2018 in Tags // 4 Comments

I love A Princess Bride. The first time I saw it, I was a freshman in high school on vacation with my (obsessed) friend, and I just didn’t get it.  I mean, what’s so great about this story?  Cheesy romance, overacting, I don’t get it. Then I watched it again.  And again.  Then I got it – all that was the point.  Then I read the book, which is super funny, and now I’m a huge fan. Last year, when Em @ The Keystroke Blog posted this tag, I knew I had to steal it.  I couldn’t help myself.  It’s been sitting in my […]

Five Amazing Books I Was Lucky Enough Receive as ARCs (& You Should Read!)

Five Amazing Books I Was Lucky Enough Receive as ARCs (& You Should Read!)

Posted August 7, 2018 in Memes // 13 Comments

One of the coolest things about being a book blogger – even a little one like me – is the opportunity to get great ARCs.  Not all of them are golden, don’t get me wrong.  I’m one of those spontaneous bloggers who has requested several books on instinct only to wish I hadn’t.  I’ve has some doozies. But, on the other hand, I’ve also gotten lucky here and there, and I’ve been fortunate enough to get to read some really awesome books early and promote them on the blog and elsewhere on the interwebs.  Thank you so much to NetGalley and LibraryThing […]

I really wanted to do this tag last year, and it just didn’t work out with my posting schedule.  This year, I bookmarked the tag from the lovely Lia @ Lost in a Story and I am ready to DO THIS THING. ARE YOU READY TO FREAK OUT?! The Best Book You’ve Read So Far in 2018 Gosh this one is hard.  I’ve read a lot of really fantastic books so far this year and it’s so hard to pick JUST ONE.  I think I have to go with Tess of the Road, because it’s the one that spoke to me […]

Villains We Love to Hate

Villains We Love to Hate

Posted April 7, 2018 in Bookish Things // 5 Comments

You can love the protagonist, love the romantic relationships… you can even fall head over heels with the world building, but what’s a fantasy without a proper villain?  Whether you’re the type of person who enjoys the enigmatic Darking from Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse, or quivers under Tolkien’s Eye of Sauron, a good villain really makes the story. I’m finding lately in YA that a lot of villains are multi-dimensional… to the point that you’re unsure if they’re doing bad things for a good reason, or if they’re totally 100% evil.  I recently read Children of Blood and Bone where the villain was […]
