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...
 

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books I Read in 2017

Yay, it's finally that time when I get to rave and fangirl about my favorite books of the year! Am I the only one who spends pretty much the entire year looking forward to this post? Anyway, as per usual, I made the graphic before the post, and, well, I have 11 instead of 10. (Well, technically I have 22 because of series.) But the more the merrier, right? Definitely. More books always = more...
 

The Weekly Update: 11/26/17

I've kind of been in a mood lately. I haven't been feeling great, I'm so stressed about so many things, I'm anxious about other things, and now this Net Neutrality issue is making everything worse. I mean, what's going to happen to our whole book blogging community if it gets repealed? (I know that's not the only thing that would be affected, but the list of things and people that would be...
 

Book Review: Lovesick Gods (Lovesick Part 1) by Amanda Meuwissen

Danny is a detective by day and the superhero Zeus by night, but he's been struggling for months, ever since losing his friend and his mother to the villain Thanatos.

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!

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....

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...
