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 […]

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! […]

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 […]

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

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 […]
