The Identity Crisis Book Tag

The Identity Crisis Book Tag

Now, I’ve got to admit.  I’m not as crazy all over the WHO WOULD YOU BE?! quizzes as I was when I was younger.  When I was younger, there was Quizilla, and I made these quizzes.  But every once in a while, Twitter lures me into another “these questions don’t even make sense, BUT I AM ANSWERING THEM” quiz so obviously I had to jump on board when Loretta created this tag! If you ever find yourself having a character-related identity crisis… look no further!  All the quizzes your heart could desire from your favorite, popular series! RULES: Take all the quizzes […]

Jurassic Park Book Tag

Jurassic Park Book Tag

You know how I talk about Jurassic Park all the time?  I think the book is super underrated in a world that is obsessed with the film franchise.  Well, imagine my glee when I stumbled across the tag on Port Jericho all about books and Jurassic Park/Jurassic World.  Um, sold! I wasn’t tagged in this one, but I stole it because… how could I not steal it!? The Rules In addition to linking back to the person who tagged you, it would be awesome if you link back to this post.

The NOPE Tag

The NOPE Tag

Today’s book tag was lovingly stolen from Destiny @ Howling Libraries and was originally created by A Booktube Book.  Because sometimes you need to be a bit of a negative muffin about books that just didn’t work out.  Let’s get grumpy, shall we? NOPE. Ending A book ending that made you go NOPE either in denial, rage, or simply because the ending was crappy. Immediately jumping to mind is The Fate of the Tearling by Erika Johansen. Yes, yes, I know, I often recommend the Queen of the Tearling trilogy and have actually listed The Fate of the Tearling on […]

The Triangular Tragedy of YA Fiction

The Triangular Tragedy of YA Fiction

Any reader will be hardpressed to find a novel with a female protagonist whose romantic relationship doesn’t overflow the entire plot.  Authors embrace this formula for heartbreak and success in a variety of ways:  Anita Blake author Laurell K. Hamilton overthrew her supernatural plot of necromancy and sleuthing to highlight Anita’s relations as the only plot; The Selection‘s Kiera Cass made the plot a season of popular television show, The Bachelor.  In the case of Katniss Everdeen, author Suzanne Collins writes her protagonist as a person who both calculates the potential relationships as well as pushing them aside as momentarily distracting and […]

Why I Read YA Fiction:  An Overview

Why I Read YA Fiction: An Overview

My favorite conversation topic is and has always been literature.  In high school, it was our love for the written word that may have been the only thread in common betwixt my group of friends.  I am now 25, and a few months ago I found myself in conversation with one of these old friends, and the topic of our book-of-the-moment inevitably arose.  When I know a person well enough, I am completely shameless in my literary loves, and in the course of this conversation, my friend said something along the lines of “now that I’m an adult, I try […]
