10 Characters Who are Way Cool & I’d Like To Be

10 Characters Who are Way Cool & I’d Like To Be

One of the things that I love about reading is how easy it is to get sucked into a story, as if you were really there.  When he world around you gets tough – whether it’s at a global level or just your own bubble – it’s nice to be able to escape somewhere.  I’m sure that the characters in the books may not agree, considering all their misfortunes… but sometimes, I wish I could step into their shoes for just a day. Here’s a few people who tempt me!              Thursday Next The Eyre Affair […]

My Ten Favorite Book Subjects (The Data Speaks!)

My Ten Favorite Book Subjects (The Data Speaks!)

Hi all! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about the longest books you’ve ever read.  While this is a great topic, it’s very similar to The Mountain Book Tag which I did earlier this year, so rather than repeat content, I thought I’d bring you a different top ten… one of my very own. This week, I want to talk about my top 10 book tags!  This isn’t in regard to Book Tags in the traditional sense… these are subject tags I use on my LibraryThing account.  For all the books I’ve read, I go through and tag them with […]

Cover Buys, ARE YOU A VICTIM?

Cover Buys, ARE YOU A VICTIM?

This week’s Book Blogger Hop question is the silliest ever. Are you ready?  The silliness of it will blow your mind.  Put on your anti-mind-blowing helmet for extra protection. Have you ever bought a book because you liked its cover art? I’m just going to wait here a moment while everyone in the room raises their hand. This one was added by the host of the hop, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer.  I’m being a little mean about it, but honestly?  Have you ever met a reader who hasn’t said, at least once, “Yeah, I really liked […]

5 Minor Characters that Steal the Show – #Top5Tuesday

5 Minor Characters that Steal the Show – #Top5Tuesday

While a lot of love in the bookish community goes to MCs and mortal enemies, the minor characters don’t get enough love. These are some of my favorite characters.  They make the books shine, and honestly?  Some of them FLAT OUT steal the show.  These underappreciated, underloved, small character are what this week’s Top 5 Tuesday is all about!  Shanah @ The Bionic Bookworm hosts this super fun weekly feature.  This week, she encouraged everyone to pick ten characters, but I’m going to stick with five, because I’m a REBEL. There are much spoilers here, guys. I’m serious.  If you see a […]

Covered Up In Gorgeous

Covered Up In Gorgeous

I think that one of my favorite things about writing is getting to create the covers.  There is something terribly exciting about seeing the visual representation of your novel – after all, they say a picture is worth a thousand words.  The cover of a book is so incredibly important – it is the first thing that a reader sees and the cover design can easily win a reader.  I’m not a professional graphic designer, and I have no intention of self-publishing, so my personal cover designs will not matter… but nonetheless – seeing that glorious picture in attachment to […]

Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Matchev

Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Matchev

I had an incredibly difficult time putting this one down.  I want to say I didn’t love it because lets face it… the plot kept pulling me in, then pushing me out, and I found the resolution sadly unfulfilling.  However, I loved every bit of the characters and while I had issues with Nate and Ariel being romantic interests (as they felt so old and far away from Bertie) I also know that I wanted so badly for everything to work out with Nate at the end of the book (no further spoilers here!) The writing at the very end was […]
