Authors Who Hooked Me With the First Book I Read (& I Am Forever Theirs)

Authors Who Hooked Me With the First Book I Read (& I Am Forever Theirs)

Good morning everyone! Every once in a while, I find myself reading a book that sucks me in.  Sometimes, it’s a debut that wraps me up so thoroughly that I can’t believe this author doesn’t already have a dozen publications behind them.  Other times, it’s an author who delights me every single time.  These authors are the ones that inspired to try and pick up their next work. If you haven’t read any works by these authors, or don’t have their debuts on your TBR, I  highly recommend them. Charlotte Nicole Davis Charlotte Nicole Davis is my most recent contribution […]

Popular Books That Lived Up to the Hype

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 […]

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 […]

The 90s Kid Book Tag

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 […]

Seraphina // MYOBB #17

Happy Saturday, my beautiful monsters!  I hope everybody had an amazing New Years Eve and Day.  I haven’t really celebrated since I was in college, but Matt and I have a New Years Eve taco tradition and basically just gather ourselves and prep for 2018.  Which is going to be an AMAZING year in books, by the way! This week, I’m going to be focusing on Seraphina by Rachel Hartman.  This was one of my absolutely favorite reads of 2017, and I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts on Tess of the Road with y’all next month!  In the meanwhile, though, I […]
