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...
 

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2016

So you know how I usually choose ten covers/series for my Cover Characteristic posts? Well... Hahahahahahahahaha---Not happening this time. I don't know what happened this year, if it was just coincidence or if I started judging books more by their covers and letting myself be drawn in by all the pretty ones, but I read SO MANY books with gorgeous covers this year, and I want to share them all....
 

Bookish Tag Post: Twelve Days of Christmas Book Tag

I felt like doing something Christmassy on the blog this year, apparently I'm becoming a more festive blogger :-P so I went and found a good book tag for the holiday season :-) The original is here on YouTube at LizzieLovesBooks, and, as usual, I tag anyone and everyone who wants to join...
 

Book Review: Life as a Teenage Vampire by Amanda Meuwissen

Emery gets involuntarily turned into a vampire one day just before his maker is murdered, and suddenly he's got a quirky vampire mentor appearing in his bedroom, a group of hunters trying to kill him, and an appetite for blood, which his best friend, Connor, is willingly offering---all on top of his already hectic life of high school and theatre. But then Emery encounters an even bigger problem:...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/23/16

Let's see, what news do I have this week... Well, I voted! (I had a mail-in ballot.) If ever there were an election when every vote counted, I think it'd be this one. If nothing else, my vote will at least cancel out the vote of one person in my family -_- I also made a new cat friend! I don't have my own cats to take cute photos of, but I do have...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Vampires

Vampires!!! I know I've mentioned this numerous times on my blog, but they are my favorite---my favorite paranormal creature, and one of my favorite things to read about period. I'm not going to go into a whole speech about how much I love them. Instead, I'll just get straight to the covers! :-)> (That's my one-fanged vampire smiley. I've named him Eduardo. It was the best I could do since...
 

Bookish Tag Post: Olympic Book Tag

I wasn't planning on doing this tag since I've never actually done any tags before, but I figured this would be my one and only chance since the Olympics don't last very long and won't be around for another four years... So here I am! Doing my first tag. I have to admit I don't watch many of the sports, but, since I used to be a gymnast, I am always super excited about the summer Olympics just...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Traits that Make Me Love a Character

I have no idea what characters other people like or dislike, and I mostly read indie books, so this week's topic is another one of those topics that's just too difficult for me. That's why I've tweaked it! I've come to realize there are certain things that usually make me immediately start to love a character. I'm not talking the typical personality traits like brooding or sarcastic---those are...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Book Quotes About Love and Cats

So this week's Top Ten is all about Valentine's Day---OTPs, love declarations, swoon-worthy quotes, Valentine's Day reads, etc. I was going to go with swoon-worthy quotes, but they proved to be a lot harder to find than I thought they would be. But then I came across some cat quotes and decided an anti-Valentine's Day post would be fun... except I had a bit of a shortage of cat quotes too. So,...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Read in 2015

I'm pretty sure I've already talked about all these books and series roughly 27 times each this year, but what can I say? They are my favorites! They're also the books that don't get the attention they deserve---something I keep trying to change! (Some of these first in series are free on Amazon, so check 'em out!) I have had an AMAZING book year though and am keeping my fingers crossed that next...
