I Would LOVE LOVE LOVE to Spend More Time in These Books

As a reader, it’s easy to be left wanting MORE.  There are some worlds that are so broad and exciting, it’s easy to dive in and lose ourselves in companion novels and sequels and prequels.  I’m thinking of Tamora Pierce’s Tortall universe, or of Tolkien’s Middle Earth in particular, but you can even go beyond books and talk about Star Wars or Marvel.  These worlds are vast and delicious and have enough content that if you need more of their creator’s imagination, it’s easy to find. Then, there are standalones. I actually have no problem with standalone novels, but every […]

Bookish Things That Aren’t Books – Some Fab Swag I Love

Bookish Things That Aren’t Books – Some Fab Swag I Love

There are two reasons why I keep subscribing to book boxes. The first is that OwlCrate has forced me to step out of my comfort zone and try new things.  For example, The Hearts We Sold and Foolish Hearts are books I wouldn’t have picked up on my own, and I loved them both.  Also the exclusive covers are a huge perk for me. The second reason is the swag! Frankly speaking, if you don’t enjoy the swag in a book box, there’s really no point in subscribing.  The books themselves, even in hard copy at full price, still come to about […]

I Love You, I Cherish You, Please Don’t Die // Characters I LOVE in Fiction

I Love You, I Cherish You, Please Don’t Die // Characters I LOVE in Fiction

Raise your hand if you’ve ever read a book and immediately fallen in love with a character. It doesn’t have to be the protagonist.  It could be a weird, random side character that only appears occasionally.  It could be a character that dies.  A character that comes back to life.  It could be a large bear.  Whichever way it is, that character makes you smile like a fool every time they’re mentioned.  You know they’re the best character in the book, and will argue it to the death. They’re the characters you fall in love with.  The ones you will […]

I Wish There Were More _______ In Books

I Wish There Were More _______ In Books

There are a few kinds of books I get passionate about. Books with really amazing, beautiful writing. Books with incredible, loveable/hateable characters. Books I absolutely cannot predict what is this madness. Books with amazing relationship dynamics that make my heart flutter. I also think that we all have a few things that we love dearly that we wish we could find more of in books.  Things that we wish were written about a little more!  I have a bunch, and I’m actively seeking more so if you know any, please let me know in the comments so I can add […]

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

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

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 […]
