The #NotAll Book Tag

The #NotAll Book Tag

I’m one of those people who absolutely generalizes when she complains about things.  Everything is the worst or I love everything about something.  It’s a bad habit, and one I want to try and overcome because stereotyping is horrible, whether it’s people or days of the week or books or whatever.  Today’s book tag totally brings that vibe. Thanks to the Orangutan Librarian for creating this #notall book tag!  It’s a fun idea, and I absolutely stole this from Holly @ Nut Free Nerd a little over a year ago.  Thanks, Holly for bringing this tag to my attention! #NotAll Cover Changes || […]

I’ve spoken before as to why this genre has a special place in my heart, but like all genres, there are sub-genres to consider!  Over the years, I’ve actually come to love a few different aspects of fantasy… but my first love was epic fantasy.  These intense tales with intricate created worlds, mythical creatures, and magical systems have always tickled my imagination. In celebration of some of these timeless stories, I’d like to share some pretty great epic fantasy stories.

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 […]
