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 […]

10 Love Stories That Melt My Heart

10 Love Stories That Melt My Heart

Earlier this month, I did the Anti-Valentines Book Tag, which was all about how I’m not a romantic and how my husband and I don’t celebrate Valentines Day.  I don’t want y’all to get the wrong idea though!  I’m not against love.  Cheesy love stories make me roll my eyes, but dang there are some out there that I’m crazy about. Some of them even make me go weak at the knees.  And while I complain a lot about a love story overriding the main plot, sometimes the love story subplot is the icing on the cake.  Here are ten couples whose love stories […]

The Birthday Book Tag

Hi everyone! Guess what!!! Yup!  I know you thought it was last year, but turns out it is kind of an annual thing. So for fun, I thought I would do this cool Birthday Book tag I saw over on Laughing Listener last December! It looks like this was originally created by Brunette Bibliophile over on YouTube.  Have y’all ever noticed how BookTube comes up with the best tags?  Both are great bookish stops – one blog and one vlog – so check them out if you’ve got a second. 🙂 And without further ado… the Birthday Book Tag! Count […]

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 […]

I love The Night Circus.  Thank you from the tip of my nose to the bottoms of my toes to those who voted for this one!  This book was one of the highlights of my year – it brought me into a magically world at a really difficult time in my life, so on a personal level, it was amazing.  Then of course there is the book itself, which is just brilliant and beautiful and touching and one of my favorite love stories.  We definitely need to see a real book box for this one. But in the meanwhile, there is me! […]
