My OTP Narrator/Book Matches

My OTP Narrator/Book Matches

Posted March 26, 2019 in Memes // 24 Comments

I am a HUGE audiobook listener – more than 2/3 of my reading the last two years has been via audiobooks.  So color me surprised when I went to review my “read by” section of my review archive, only to discover that I’ve only listened to a handful of narrators a couple times.  This post was supposed to be about ten amazing narrators, but instead, I’m giving you something else. One of the audiobook pain points that came up for the post a couple weeks ago was that a bad narrator ruins a book.  I am 100% on board with this […]

Traveling the World in Books

Traveling the World in Books

Posted February 26, 2019 in Memes // 7 Comments

In 2017, I joined up with Top 5 Tuesday to write a post of five bookish places I’d like to live in.  When a similar topic popped up on Top Ten Tuesday, I wanted to take it in a different direction. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit Europe last year, and ever since, I’ve had a deep desire to travel and see the world for myself.  While financially that isn’t possible for me, it’s still possible to visit these places in books!  And I can dream.  While fantasy worlds are all well and good, our own planet […]

September Wrap Up

September Wrap Up

Posted September 24, 2018 in Checking In // 19 Comments

Well! September breezed through again – largely, I think, because I was on vacation this month! Regular readers and those who follow along on my Twitter or Instagram will know that my husband and I went down to Orlando to the Disney Parks last week! It was hot and exhausting but SO much fun. I’ll talk a little more about that later and in coming weeks. All the things I’ve been reading Highlights: Vicious / ★★★★ 1/2 – This is my second V.E. Schwab book. Color me impressed! This was light on the world building, but amazing in character development. […]

Ten Books I Wish More People Were Talking About

Ten Books I Wish More People Were Talking About

I love to shout about the books I love. You may have noticed that pattern among book bloggers – you may love to do it yourself.  Some books – like The Night Circus or Ready Player One – everyone is talking about.  But then, there are books you think were fantastic, but people just aren’t talking about them as much as you think they deserve. For me, this encompasses most the books on my shelf.  If I own it, I probably love it, and want to talk about it.  How about you?  Here are some books I la-la-love, that I wish got more […]

  I am hopelessly enamored by my childhood favorites. From The Immortals to Harry Potter to His Dark Materials, the books I read in middle school and high school still remain my sentimental favorites.  I read them over and again, and mostly just applaud myself for my excellent taste. Artemis Fowl is, undoubtedly, my favorite teen boy hero.  And yes, that means I like him better than both Harry Potter and Percy Jackson.  I like both their books fine, but Artemis himself takes the cake.  He’s a genius, inventive, confident, and captured an elf.  Sure – Harry and Percy fought gods and […]
