Cover Characteristics: Black, White, & Orange Book Covers

I love covers that are black and white with just one true color because it really makes that one color POP. And even though these covers can be enjoyed year-round, what better to time to share some awesome black, white, and orange book covers than October? No better time, I think. So here some great, orange-filled book...

The Weekly Update: 10/15/17

I had so much stuff to tell you all last week, and this week I have pretty much nothing. I'm perfectly ok with that though because it means at least nothing bad happened! But oh, I did randomly get hooked on cooking shows? I've never liked them before, but I swear I spent one whole day just marathoning an entire season of some Halloween bake-off show, and I'm also really loving this one that's...

Bookish Musings: Horror Books I’ve Read (Even Though I Don’t Read Horror)

I am a total chicken when it comes to horror. Really, I just can't handle it. I can probably count on my hands the number of scary movies I've watched, I have literally absolutely zero desire to go to things like Halloween Horror Nights, I don't particularly enjoy being scared the way some people do, and, well, I guess that has translated over into my reading since I don't really read horror...

Book Recs: 10 Lesser-Known Books about Vampires

As your friendly, neighborhood vampire-loving book blogger, I feel it is my duty to promote all the great vampire books out there. Ok, I actually just made that up because it sounded good. But that doesn't make it any less true! I do in fact love vampire books, and I feel like they've gotten a bad rap over the years. So whether you're already a die-hard vampire fan or are just a fan of good...

Update: The Weekly Update 10/1/17

I need a new name for these posts since they don't seem to happening weekly anymore. This time it's not entirely my fault though. I was going to start doing them every other week, and then freaking Hurricane Irma showed up and screwed up everything. My family and our houses were all fine since the hurricane ended up not hitting any of us directly, but I lost power for nine and a half days, then I...
