Let’s Go On An Adventure: Excellent Epic Fantasy – #TopTenTuesday

Let’s Go On An Adventure: Excellent Epic Fantasy – #TopTenTuesday

I love love LOVE fantasy. I’ve spoken before as to why this genre has a special place in my heart, but like all genres, there are sub-genres to consider!  Over the years, I’ve actually come to love a few different aspects of fantasy… but my first love was epic fantasy.  These intense tales with intricate created worlds, mythical creatures, and magical systems have always tickled my imagination. In celebration of some of these timeless stories, I’d like to share some pretty great epic fantasy stories. The Inheritance Cycle Christopher Paolini While this series has gotten a lot of negative reviews […]

March Nerdy Post Unboxing // Young Adult // SPOILERS!

March Nerdy Post Unboxing // Young Adult // SPOILERS!

I don’t think that I’ve seen any unboxings for Nerdy Post on anyone’s blog?  As far as swag boxes go, I don’t think I’ve overstitching to say that it’s one of the more popular, reliable ones.  Even though it’s a bookish box that doesn’t contain a book, I think it’s a pretty good box if you’re interested in the theme and are looking for some fun swag items for Instagram, or to spruce up your personal space. Nerdy Post has a few different levels of boxes, depending on what you’d like included.  The cost of these boxes range from $9.95 […]

My 10 Favorite New Authors of 2018 (& 2018 Debut Author Challenge Review!)

My 10 Favorite New Authors of 2018 (& 2018 Debut Author Challenge Review!)

Last year, I participated in That Artsy Reader Girl’s 2018 Debut Authors Challenge.  This is a challenge Jana has been running for a few years now, though you probably know her better from Top Ten Tuesday!  The Debut Author Challenge is intended to encourage readers to reach out and support new and upcoming authors.  I’ve got to be honest, without this challenge, I most likely would have missed out of some of my favorite books of 2018. As a twist on today’s Top Ten Tuesday, I wanted to talk a little about my Top Ten New Authors from 2018 that […]

2018: My Year In Books

2018: My Year In Books

Annual round up time!  I like this time of year because it’s like this amazing gallery of all the different worlds I’ve visited and the people I’ve meant.  Okay, so granted, all these people and places are fictional, but books are still the sort of thing that make me happy, so taking a brief revisit is always fun. As I predicted last year, 2018 was so much better than 2017 in regards to my personal life, travel, reading, everything!  I’m so grateful for this upturn, and I’m sure 2019 will bring whole new slew of joy and surprises.  I started my […]

5 Fantastic Female Friendships in YA

5 Fantastic Female Friendships in YA

Hi loves! There was a Top Ten Tuesday topic a couple weeks ago about great friendships in YA, and I really wanted to join in because I’ve been trying to remember to jot down awesome, healthy female friendships when I come across them as I’ve been reading YA books this year.  Unfortunately, since NaNoWriMo was afoot, I really didn’t have time to balance new blog posts and plow ahead with The Novel, so I didn’t make the deadline. That said, I still wanted to join in on this topic!  I know that I’ve missed some, and it pains me to disclose […]

20 Questions Book Tag

20 Questions Book Tag

Back in June, the lovely Iris tagged me to participate in the 20 Questions Book Tag!  Have y’all even played 20 questions?  Most frustrating game ever – I feel like it always ends up being way more than 20 questions, and I never guess it right! The book tag version is much more fun.  Thanks for the tag, Iris, and y’all make sure you go check out Hoard of Books! Question One How many books are too many books in a book series? I think it depends on the series.  I would take about twelve more various Harry Potter books […]
