10 Characters Who are Way Cool & I’d Like To Be

10 Characters Who are Way Cool & I’d Like To Be

Posted March 5, 2019 in Memes // 4 Comments

One of the things that I love about reading is how easy it is to get sucked into a story, as if you were really there.  When he world around you gets tough – whether it’s at a global level or just your own bubble – it’s nice to be able to escape somewhere.  I’m sure that the characters in the books may not agree, considering all their misfortunes… but sometimes, I wish I could step into their shoes for just a day. Here’s a few people who tempt me!              Thursday Next The Eyre Affair […]

Traveling the World in Books

Traveling the World in Books

Posted February 26, 2019 in Memes // 7 Comments

In 2017, I joined up with Top 5 Tuesday to write a post of five bookish places I’d like to live in.  When a similar topic popped up on Top Ten Tuesday, I wanted to take it in a different direction. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit Europe last year, and ever since, I’ve had a deep desire to travel and see the world for myself.  While financially that isn’t possible for me, it’s still possible to visit these places in books!  And I can dream.  While fantasy worlds are all well and good, our own planet […]

Happy Saturday everybody! The fact that you’re reading this is in itself a miracle.  It means I have dragged myself out of my exhausted, sick stupor to write a post!  I was supposed to write it up on Monday, after all the wedding goodness, but I was so sick.  So, so sick.  Mes amis?  Take your vitamin C.  Get enough sleep.  Learn from my mistakes. Ughhh. Everything went really well!  I’ll fill you more in on the wedding goodness on Monday. 🙂 For today, we have a Make-Your-Own Book Box inspired by The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman.  I’m really psyched y’all […]

Fight Like a YA Girl Tag

Posted October 10, 2017 in Tags // 8 Comments

Well this is probably the neatest tag title I’ve seen.  Who doesn’t love a kickass YA girl?  In the last decade, the genre is flooded with really awesome female characters.  I’m okay with this… even if sometimes they’re a little repetitive.  This topic ties in really well with my Top Ten Kickass Female Characters post from a couple weeks ago, so lets continue the discussion! This tag was stolen from Kyera @ Kyera’s Library back in July.  Thanks for sharing it, Kyera – I love it! THE RULES Thank the person who tagged you. Mention the creator Krysti at YA and […]

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 […]
