Let’s Go On An Adventure: Excellent Epic Fantasy – #TopTenTuesday

Let’s Go On An Adventure: Excellent Epic Fantasy – #TopTenTuesday

I love love LOVE fantasy. 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.

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 […]

My Ten Favorite Book Subjects (The Data Speaks!)

My Ten Favorite Book Subjects (The Data Speaks!)

This week, I want to talk about my top 10 book tags!  This isn’t in regard to Book Tags in the traditional sense… these are subject tags I use on my LibraryThing account.  For all the books I’ve read, I go through and tag them with […]

A Collection of Bookish Quotes

A Collection of Bookish Quotes

I often find comfort in books.  Whether it’s a lighthearted jab or deep words of wisdom, or a moment of inspiration… books have a lot of things to say about life and love and humor and hope. Today, I’m going to share a few favorites with you. <3 “The thing about growing up with Fred and George,” said Ginny thoughtfully, “is that you sort of start thinking anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince “Even a book can be dangerous in the wrong hands, and when that happens, you blame the hands, but […]

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 […]
