My OTP Narrator/Book Matches

My OTP Narrator/Book Matches

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Why Were These Books on My TBR So Long?!

Why Were These Books on My TBR So Long?!

Guys, let my life be a lesson to you: pay attention to your TBR. You put stuff on there for a reason.  You put it there because someone said the book was AMAZING.  Because the cover was glamorous.  Because something in the summary called to your heart and you knew you needed that book.  Sure, you’ll go through and some of them will be duds.  But some of them will be magical. I am notorious for falling to series and rereads and ignoring my TBR.  Mistake. In the last year, I’ve gone back to the beginning of my TBR and reading […]

A Collection of Bookish Quotes

A Collection of Bookish Quotes

I often find comfort in books.  Whether it’s a lighthearted jab or deep words of wisdom, or a moment of inspiration… books have a lot of things to say about life and love and humor and hope. Today, I’m going to share a few favorites with you. <3 “The thing about growing up with Fred and George,” said Ginny thoughtfully, “is that you sort of start thinking anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince “Even a book can be dangerous in the wrong hands, and when that happens, you blame the hands, but […]

February Wrap Up

February Wrap Up

February is always the fastest month of the year.  Maybe it’s because there’s so much going on, maybe it’s because it’s technically the shortest month… I don’t know!  But here we are again at the end of it! For all you beautiful people reading this, I hope you all had an amazing Valentine’s Day, Lunar New Year, President’s Day – the whole shebang.  And all the holidays I missed.  February is ripe with holidays! My bookishness wasn’t as ambitious this month as January, but I loved all the books I got through.  It was just slow going.  February hits me hard as […]
