Book Recs: 10 Lesser-Known Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books with Disabled Characters

In an effort to spread more awareness of disabilities and the books that feature them, I've decided to join the Disability Diaries event and to share with you all ten science fiction and fantasy books featuring disabled characters! I know this is similar to the list I just introduced on Monday, but I wanted a chance to actually spotlight some of the books I've read and others that sound...
 

Book Review: The Girl in Between (The Girl in Between Book 1) by Laekan Zea Kemp

Bryn has Klein-Levin Syndrome, a chronic illness that causes episodes of sleep that last anywhere from days to months, but hers is a rare case because, when she has these episodes, she goes to a strange place with an everchanging landscape, made entirely of her memories, where she's the completely alone... until the day a boy she's never met washes up on the beach. He has no memory, but she's...
 

Announcement: Introducing the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books with Disability Masterlist!

As some of you may know, for a while now I've been searching for sci-fi/fantasy books with physically disabled and chronically ill characters. And during that time, I kept trying to figure out something I could do with my blog to help bring awareness to disabilities and the books that include them in order to spread more understanding. And this was what I came up with! So I am happy to introduce...
 

The Weekly Update: 1/15/17

My tennis elbow is back :-/ I knew this would be an ongoing battle. I know I'm not good at resting injuries, but I really thought I had been doing better with resting this one than with pretty much any injury I've ever had in the past. *sigh* In better news, I completely forgot to buy peppermint oil when I went shopping -_- but I think the cold weather finally got rid of the last of the ant...
 

Book Review: Obscura Burning by Suzanne van Rooyen

Kyle can't remember what happened the night of the fire, but, ever since then, he's been stuck alternating between two realities---one in which his boyfriend, Danny, is alive but paraplegic and their friend, Shira, is dead, the other in which Shira is alive but Danny is dead and Kyle is horribly scarred from the burns. But shifting between realities is killing Kyle, both literally and...
 

Discussion: Why I Love Book Playlists

So, in case you didn't get this from the post title, I love book playlists. You know, playlists of songs that authors or readers create that are either inspired by the book or go with the book. I even make them myself sometimes (though, admittedly, I haven't made any for a while). And because I love them so much (also because I've been listening to one in particular a lot lately), I thought it'd...
 

Book Review: Succubus (The Executioner Book 1) by Brandon Varnell

Christian, one of the church's best Executioners (killer of supernatural creatures), gets sent on a mission to kill a dangerous succubus only to discover that while there is definitely something strange about the way men act around her, she may not be a succubus at all. As Christian starts to fall for Lilith, his goal changes from killing her to protecting from all the other supernaturals who...
 

Tag Post: My Harry Potter Life Tag

So I saw this tag over at A Dance With Books, and it looked like so much fun I couldn't resist. It was originally created by The Writing Hufflepuff, and what you do is choose four books, then you use those books to answer the questions. (I recommend choosing books before you even look at the questions, that's what I did, and I think it's more fun that way!) Anyway, here's my Harry Potter life!...
 

The Weekly Update: 1/8/16

It has been a fairly uneventful week for me. I'm just kind of really extra tired because of all the construction noises -_- I'm finally going to buy myself some peppermint oil to use for the ant problem today though (if I remember). I haven't seen any lately, so they might be gone, but I was wrong about that once before, so I'll use the peppermint oil just to be sure since apparently they don't...
