Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Disability

I've been wanting to do this post for a while since I talk a lot about disability in books on my blog and have the list of sci-fi/fantasy books with disability and everything, but let me tell you, there are NOT a lot of book covers out there that show any sort of visible disability on them. Especially sci-fi/fantasy books, which is what I like to focus on. A lot of disabilities are invisible, and...

Book Recs: 10 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books with No Romance

In honor of Valentine's Day, I have decided to make a post for all the people out there who are NOT looking for love! Well, not in books, at least ;-) Romance in books is great. I like it. I really do! But, on occasion, I'm just not in the mood for it. And a book doesn't have to have romance to be amazing! I can't promise there's not a single mention of romance or feelings in all of these,...

Update: Life and Books (2/11/18)

So I've been doing some more Netflix watching. I watched two random gymnastics movies I found. The first was awful, the second was alright. I also watched The Road to El Dorado. It was cute! Also more inappropriate than I thought a kid's movie would be. I'm also up to Season 2 of Peaky Blinders. I'm dealing with eye strain at the moment though, so I've had to take it easy with...

Bookish Musings: Imagining Scenes from the POV of a Non-POV Character

Have you ever read a book that was written from the POV of one character, but you imagined what certain scenes or moments or even the whole book must've been like from the POV of another character? I guess we all must to a certain extent or we wouldn't ever empathize with or feel the emotions of other characters when things happen to them. But there was one specific situation in a book that got...

Blogging Tips: How to Use Feedly (+ Why It’s My Favorite Feed Reader!)

When I first started blogging, I used live bookmarks instead of a feed reader, but eventually I was following too many blogs to keep up with, and it was too much work to check for new posts. I then switched to Bloglovin', but it seemed like they weren't showing me all the posts from blogs I was following, it was difficult to organize the blogs, and I couldn't figure out a way to remove posts...
