10 Great Books That Have Fallen Off The Radar (Or So It Seems?)

10 Great Books That Have Fallen Off The Radar (Or So It Seems?)

Posted April 27, 2020 in Bookish Things // 0 Comments

Every once in a while, I like to dig through my archives of reviews and see the books people have stopped talking about.  Sometimes I feel like bookish hype rules the day, but to be honest, I really like reading books after the hype has died down.  There’s a lot less pressure to deliver a certain kind of review, and you’re left to enjoy the novel in a suspended state – no rush to meet deadlines, no pressure from the community. Unfortunately, because the publishing world is a business, the world keeps moving and the clock keeps ticking and things get […]

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!)

Posted October 9, 2018 in Memes // 17 Comments

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?

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 […]

5 Minor Characters that Steal the Show – #Top5Tuesday

Posted August 29, 2017 in Memes // 9 Comments

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 […]
