The #NowWeRise Book Tag

The #NowWeRise Book Tag

Posted April 3, 2020 in Tags // 2 Comments

The #NowWeRise Book Tag was created by Bec’s Books back in 2018, and while I didn’t participate in it back then, I’ve been holding on to it since I saw it drop on Written Word Worlds.  This book tag was create to celebrate Children of Blood and Bone, which was one of the first very impactful YA fantasys featuring rich minority cultures.  Others came before, and other came after, but if you ask readers the first time they truly interacted with a non-White non-Western-European-inspired fantasy world… Children of Blood and Bone will jump first to many, many minds. As it’s a […]

The #NotAll Book Tag

The #NotAll Book Tag

Posted November 14, 2019 in Tags // 0 Comments

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 || […]

September Wrap Up

September Wrap Up

Posted September 24, 2018 in Checking In // 19 Comments

Well! September breezed through again – largely, I think, because I was on vacation this month! Regular readers and those who follow along on my Twitter or Instagram will know that my husband and I went down to Orlando to the Disney Parks last week! It was hot and exhausting but SO much fun. I’ll talk a little more about that later and in coming weeks. Not a big haul this month – City Of Ghosts was a preorder, and Dread Nation was half price on Amazon at the beginning of the month. I actually DO have more books coming, […]

Vicious by V. E. Schwab

Vicious by V. E. Schwab

Posted September 3, 2018 in Reviews // 6 Comments

I’ve only read one other V. E. Schwab book (A Darker Shade of Magic) and loved it.  Schwab has a way of wrapping her reader up slowly in her stories, until you’re so tangled you have no choice but to dig deeper for the dark secret at the center of the novel.  It’s a beautiful thing, really.  Thank goodness her books aren’t as long as George R. R. Martin’s, or we’d all be ensnared for life. Victor Vale is a great character.  He is beyond confident – Vale is resolute.  There were a few passages that set off red flags […]

Welcome to Another Muggy Sunday

Welcome to Another Muggy Sunday

Posted August 19, 2018 in Thoughts // 16 Comments

Good morning everyone! I just felt like doing a live, unplanned post this morning.  My catching up on blogging has been going really well since I mentioned in the July Wrap Up that I had nothing scheduled. I’m into the beginning of October now, so I’m well ahead.  I had one week when I was able to schedule a post a day, which is great!  Anyways, I just felt like saying hello live for a change. So – hi, hello, how are you?  Is anyone else in New England?  Is anyone else sick of all this heat and humidity?  If I’m not […]
