Wonderful Books that Need a Spotlight in the Blogosphere

Wonderful Books that Need a Spotlight in the Blogosphere

Book bloggers tend to be individuals who read a lot. A LOT.  It’s very easy to fall into the hype of books promoted by one of the bigger influencers in our community.  These books blossom out like wildfire.  And, yes, they’re largely very good.  Things like Six of Crows and Strange the Dreamer.  But there are books – a lot of other books – that slip under the radar.  And they’re good books. Today, I want to share with you some great books that haven’t been really seen by the community as a whole.  Only two of these books are pre-orders (so […]

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 […]

Fall Book Tag

Fall Book Tag

A little more than a year ago, Kyera tagged me in The Fall Book Tag.  At the time, my blogging schedule was so so full, I never found a place to put it without double-posting, but I saved it, because this is a lovely tag and I really wanted to make sure I did it! I love autumn.  I live the whole year for Octobers.  I’m a New Englander – autumn means jack-o-lanterns and sunset-colored treetops and apple cinnamon pie.  Autumn has the best sights, smells, and weather where I live.  This tag was practically made for me. <3 The rules: Please link back to […]

Inconceivable!  It’s a Princess Bride Book Tag!

Inconceivable! It’s a Princess Bride Book Tag!

I love A Princess Bride. The first time I saw it, I was a freshman in high school on vacation with my (obsessed) friend, and I just didn’t get it.  I mean, what’s so great about this story?  Cheesy romance, overacting, I don’t get it. Then I watched it again.  And again.  Then I got it – all that was the point.  Then I read the book, which is super funny, and now I’m a huge fan. Last year, when Em @ The Keystroke Blog posted this tag, I knew I had to steal it.  I couldn’t help myself.  It’s been sitting in my […]

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 […]
