Anti-Valentines Day Book Tag

Anti-Valentines Day Book Tag

Lots of people love Valentines Day.  They love the chocolate candies and fluttering candles and dew drop roses.  They love the batting eyelashes and sultry hushed voices over red wine.  I am so, so happy for those people… but I’ve never really been a Valentines Day person. Don’t get me wrong.  I will always accept chocolate.  But there’s a lot of pressure on this holiday on romantic gestures, and I just don’t want my relationship with my husband to hinge on that sort of pressure.  Neither of us are romantics, so both Valentines and our anniversary pass with a shrug […]

Hocus Pocus Book Tag

Hocus Pocus Book Tag

Last fall, the fabulous Katie over at Never Not Reading dreamed up a brilliant book tag.  This tag has everything – black cats, zombies, witches…. but really, it’s just a bunch of Hocus Pocus 😉 . I love Hocus Pocus – it’s hands down one of my top Halloween movies, and I don’t let October pass without watching it.  I’ve been holding on to this tag for a year, and Halloween just seemed like the perfect time to light the black flame candle…. (As a note – I added Allison and changed up the cameo one a little.  If you want […]

What’s America’s Favorite, Iconic Book?

What’s America’s Favorite, Iconic Book?

Have you guys heard about this “Great American Read” television show?  If you use the Goodreads web platform, it’s difficult to miss – the ad has been plastered all over mine for a couple months. There’s a lot of interesting books on this list, although I can’t imagine choosing just one book for an entire country.  PBS came up with 100 books for this competition, a mixture of popular modern reads and timeless classics.  I’ve read 37, how many have you read? 1984 by George Orwell ✓ A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole X A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving X A Separate […]

Books I Could Re-read Forever

Books I Could Re-read Forever

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to my Crossing booklist! In The Queen of the Tearling, people were allowed to take a maximum of ten books with them to the new world.  Books, while culturally important and sentimental, are heavy and technically unnecessary unless they contained medical information… so each passenger was allowed a maximum of ten.  These are fiction, or books that were close to peoples’ hearts.  Not a desert island booklist – these books did not need to have any practical value. You’ll be delighted to hear that in Queen of the Tearling, all 7 Harry Potter books made the Crossing.  Mine only has […]

The Stranger Things Book Tag

The Stranger Things Book Tag

Who else is all sorts of excited for season three of Stranger Things?  How many more months? It feels like a small eternity! I came across this tag at Sarah Sunbeemz and I loved it.  It seemed like just the thing to help pass the time until the next season. 🙂 EPIC INTRO The opening sequence of Stranger Things is amazing and really grabs your attention. Name a book that grabbed your attention from the first page. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab.  I loved the opening line of that book: “Kell wore a very peculiar coat.” DUNGEONS & […]
