Popular Books That Lived Up to the Hype

Who among us haven’t seen books basically go viral and think “I should read that because everyone else is reading it!”?  While this can be super awesome and really get some great exposure for new books, this can also be a trap.  What if the book is just sort of okay?  What if you’ve been dreaming about this really cool-sounding plot and suddenly the book blows up because “OMG, Balthasar is suuuuuuch a hunk!”  but that’s not what you’re going into the book for and what if the plot is actually terrible and… just… ack! Hyped books can be exciting, and […]

The Stranger Things Book Tag

The Stranger Things Book Tag

Posted February 21, 2018 in Tags // 0 Comments

Who else is all sorts of excited for season three of Stranger Things?  How many more months? It feels like a small eternity! I came across this tag at Sarah Sunbeemz and I loved it.  It seemed like just the thing to help pass the time until the next season. 🙂 EPIC INTRO The opening sequence of Stranger Things is amazing and really grabs your attention. Name a book that grabbed your attention from the first page. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab.  I loved the opening line of that book: “Kell wore a very peculiar coat.” DUNGEONS & […]

The NOPE Tag

The NOPE Tag

Today’s book tag was lovingly stolen from Destiny @ Howling Libraries and was originally created by A Booktube Book.  Because sometimes you need to be a bit of a negative muffin about books that just didn’t work out.  Let’s get grumpy, shall we? NOPE. Ending A book ending that made you go NOPE either in denial, rage, or simply because the ending was crappy. Immediately jumping to mind is The Fate of the Tearling by Erika Johansen. Yes, yes, I know, I often recommend the Queen of the Tearling trilogy and have actually listed The Fate of the Tearling on […]

The 90s Kid Book Tag

Guys I love book tags.  I may not do them very often, but they’re always so much fun.  I wanted to create my own!  I’ve looked high and low, but I haven’t found a 90s Kid Book Tag yet.  We 90s kids are hugely nostalgic, so this came as a bit of a surprise to me!  I had to make one. Originally, this tag had about 40 items (oops).  I’ve cut it way down to what I thought were the most interesting ones… and if you weren’t a 90s kid – don’t worry!  I’ve tried to explain some of our […]

I Wish There Were More _______ In Books

I Wish There Were More _______ In Books

Posted January 16, 2018 in Memes // 6 Comments

There are a few kinds of books I get passionate about. Books with really amazing, beautiful writing. Books with incredible, loveable/hateable characters. Books I absolutely cannot predict what is this madness. Books with amazing relationship dynamics that make my heart flutter. I also think that we all have a few things that we love dearly that we wish we could find more of in books.  Things that we wish were written about a little more!  I have a bunch, and I’m actively seeking more so if you know any, please let me know in the comments so I can add […]
