Ghost Stories You Simply Must Read

Ghost Stories You Simply Must Read

Almost everyone likes a thrill every once and a while.  While I don’t love horror novels, I do like ghost stories!  And sometimes, they come unexpected.  I’ve read a few books in the last couple years that I thought were going to be about witches or mermaids, but ended up being ghost stories!  Color me thrilled. As Halloween is tomorrow, there’s still a little time for spooks and thrills!  If you’re keen for a ghost story, may I suggest nine of the ones I’ve read recently?  I enjoyed them all.    The Legend of Sleepy Hollow / Featuring the famous headless […]

The Characters Who Made “Meh” Books Tolerable

I do acknowledge, though, not all books are purely unenjoyable.  Sometimes, there will be characters that stand out even if I don’t like the story.  Here are some characters of note.      Sydney Sage Bloodlines by Richelle Mead Tess Legend by Marie Lu The Faeries So Silver Bright by Lisa Mantchev Indie Crossed by Ally Condie Letty Hempstock […]

My Most Disappointing Reads of 2017

My Most Disappointing Reads of 2017

A couple weeks ago, I highlighted my favorite books I read this year.  Every one of them was an excellent, well-written, intriguing read.  Unfortunately, not all books can be perfect and meet all our expectations.  What follows is a list of the books I read this year that didn’t live up to my expectations and why. By no means does this mean you shouldn’t read these books!  Just because I thought a book fell short, doesn’t mean others wouldn’t completely and totally love it.  In fact, at least two books on this list are very popular on Goodreads, so by […]

Anna Dressed In Blood // MYOBB #2

Last week, I posted a Make-Your-Own Book Box using the Ravenclaw edition of Sorcerer’s Stone.  Based on the fact that people like book boxes, I’m going to try to post one of these boxes a week so that WHEN CHRISTMAS COMES there are lots of good ideas out there about books that people like. For this week’s book, I’ve selected the popular Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake as the featured book. Anna Dressed in Blood Box A Ghost Story Inspired Gift Box for Book Lovers. Harry Potter was an easy fandom to use.  Anna Dressed in Blood is a little […]
