My Best of the Best, Creme de la Creme Reads of 2017

My Best of the Best, Creme de la Creme Reads of 2017

Posted December 12, 2017 in Bookish Things, Memes // 34 Comments

This is the inevitable post of the year, when we have to go through our amazing list of wonderful reads and pick favorites.  Guys, this is the worst.  It is hard.  There are so many good books that came out this year, but there are also a lot of great books that I read that came out last year.  Or two years ago.  Or ten years ago. Rather than just feature 2017 books, I’ve chosen to drive myself crazy and feature the reads that met and exceeded expectations this year.  The ones that wrapped me up in their worlds and wouldn’t let […]

Meet a Few KICK ASS Ladies in Fantasy

Meet a Few KICK ASS Ladies in Fantasy

Many moons ago, I wrote a post about my Top Three Strong Female Characters.  This list featured Holly Short, Hermione Granger, and Max.  While all three of them are excellent characters, I’ve been really wanting to create an updated list, because a strong, sassy female character is my weakness.  Do you have a heroine that kicks ass?  I need to know all about her.  Like, now. I have a great big list of Strong Female Characters on Goodreads, and I also have a tag on the blog for it.  Needless to repeat, these girls are the peanut butter to my jelly […]

Welcome Ladies & Gents, to the August Wrap Up! August has been a busy month!  For me, there’s been vacations and birthdays and a trip to the dentist (BLECH), and a solar eclipse!  I am so so proud of myself because I have posted every day this month!  I know a lot of people are heading back to school within a week, if they haven’t already.  Can you believe summer’s almost over?  SHEESH.  I think that we all have had a crazy month, so let’s get down to it!  EXCITING THINGS ARE AFOOT, MY PHOENIX FRIENDS. No, not that kind […]

  I simply LOVED this book. Ruby Red was such a lot of fun.  Gwyneth Shepard’s family has too many secrets.  One of these is that her cousin, Charlotte, has inherited the time travel gene and she must keep an eye to see if Charlotte gets dizzy and, very importantly, draw a chalk circle where she disappears.  Only, it isn’t Charlotte who disappears – it’s Gwyneth!  Completely uninitiated, poor Gwennie is thrust into her family’s grand conspiracy theory, and has to decide who to trust, and who is trying to kill her. This audiobook was one of the ones I […]

So I’ve been reading a lot more books than I usually do, and I’m quite proud of myself. I think it’s because I have stumbled into the section of my TBR with a bunch of MG, short, and light and fluffy novels.  But that’s cool – I’m really enjoying them.  Percy Jackson was WONDERFUL and I’m nearly done with Ruby Red right now, and YUM.  How have I not gotten to these before? #shame I’m going to start with the older books first, then move on to the newer ones, yes?  Yes. So REJECTED PRINCESSES. This is the book that […]
