I haven’t done a book related post in a while so of course when the wonderful Patty @ Moonshine’s Corner tagged me for this tag I decided why not! If you haven’t met Patty yet you need to head over there. She’s super awesome. She writes book reviews as well as occasional life adventures updates.[...]
I’m sitting here multitasking my thoughts about what to write for the daily prompt word and the book I’ve been legitimately glued to for the last 24 hours did it for me:
Namid’s teeth and claws are terrible indeed.
You do not want to know what happens when the humans break their pacts with the earth natives.[...]
I’ve graciously been
demanded asked to do this Candy Books Tag by the most awesome blogger James. It’s a lot of fun and I welcome anyone else who would like to do this, participate as well! James found the tag at Eva’s blog @ BrilliantlyBookishSite but it seems the creator of the tag’s blog no longer exists at this time.[...]
This the Rapid Fire Book Tag introduced to me by Mischenko over at ReadRantRock&Roll. I’ve just started following Mischenko who has a blog full of fun book reviews and author spotlights! So if you’re looking for something new to dive in, definitely check her blog. It was originally made by GirlReading over Youtube, so be sure to stop by and check her out HERE.[...]
Okay, I admit. I have a
When we lived in our little one bedroom apartment, it was always a struggle trying to figure out how to stack all the books I acquire from sales and the internet on this shelf. It started out as one shelf then turned into two. The bookcase has four shelves total and I allowed my husband to use one for his video games and the very bottom one was for my Disney movies.[...]
You ever read a book or series by an author and chucked it into the DNF pile after one or two books? I’ve done that a few times. I won’t be specific on that list but Anne Bishop was one of those authors. I read (tried to) the first book in her Ephemera series and it was just no. I didn’t finish the book and I have this habit of swearing off the author after that. In hindsight, I probably should have known from the reviews but I try not to read book reviews too deeply before a first read because spoilers. The writing style just wasn’t what I expected or my cup of tea. This was a couple of years ago. I thought about picking up her Black Jewels series for a while but never did.[...]
My awesome friend James has asked me to collaborate with him on his Top Reads per Genre in an age group. Today I chose the urban fantasy genre. I hope you enjoy my spin on another one of his cool tags!
- Pick a genre. You can get very detailed and go into sub-genres, e.g. cozy, classic, etc. I’m starting general and may work my way down into the details.
- Pick an age range, roughly covering 12 years. You can add more or start with less, but I figured twelve ages seemed like a good one to start with.
- Pick a book for each age that you’d recommend to get someone situated with the genre.
- You can’t repeat an author within that age range.
- Explain why that author, book and age.
- Either show a book cover or provide a link to the book on Goodreads, or if you’ve read it and have a review, link your review.
- Start a discussion with everyone, e.g. is it the right age, is something missing…
- Tag others if you’d like, but I open it to everyone.
Urban Fantasy is a sub-genre of Fantasy that usually has supernatural elements in a contemporary setting. The worlds in which the stories take place are entirely fiction and can sometimes take place in a historical, modern or futuristic world. The age group outlined below goes from YA (young adult) to NA (new adult) to adult.[...]
Without looking the book descriptions up, which cover looks the coolest to you:
Trying to figure out what I want to read next because the series I started is going to be on the DNF list unfortunately.
My first official book tag!! Hooray!
I was tagged by the brilliant orang-utanlibrarian to participate in this fun tag! If you have not visited her blog, you need to click immediately. She writes the most engaging, detailed book reviews I’ve come across and she’s super nice!
Last night I finished my 700-page monster. I mean this behemoth was.. I can’t even describe it without spoilers. It was good. I mean it was fantastic really. I was hooked from the beginning which I think came from the anticipation of reading an author’s work that I’ve been waiting for for a year and a half. I got lost in this book. Well, I have a habit of getting lost in any book I read. I have the ability to tune out the world. A person could be talking to me for 5 minutes and I don’t hear them. I’m so immersed in the story that I forget the real world exists. That can be a problem sometimes but I can’t help it. I’m aware but not completely. If I have a day off, and I’m good and into a book, the only time I’ll get up is to go to the bathroom. I won’t eat until it’s finished. I don’t even think I notice I’m hungry until I come up for air.[...]
