Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Dragons

I'm all excited for this weeks topic of dragon book covers because it came at kind of a perfect time. One of my favorite series (Steel & Stone by Annette Marie) just released the cover for the final book, and it just so happens to have a dragon on it! It also sounds like it's going to have lots of dragon-y goodness (well, some of the characters are kind of part-dragon, but they also have dragon...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Paranormal Creatures I Like to Read About

I love urban fantasy and paranormal romance, so I absolutely couldn't resist my chance to talk about my favorite genres. And one of the things I love most is seeing the different way paranormal creatures are portrayed by different authors. I usually prefer the "good" kinds, the ones who are the protagonist or the love interest or the best friend and are technically monsters but still have a good...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (5)

This was a really slow, unproductive book week for me. I ended up starting three different books, all books I want to read, but they just weren't what I *felt* like at the time. I've hit another "I have 500 books and nothing to read" slump. (That sure didn't take long -_-) And I'm very much a mood reader. If I'm not in the right mood for a certain type of book, it can ruin what would otherwise be...

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books on my Fall TBR

This TTT topic could not have come at a more PERFECT time. I almost never plan my books ahead of time. I read whatever I feel like reading whenever I feel like reading it. I did plan books this month because I just so happen to be doing my own Series September Reading Challenge, but that's also the reason I now have a whole list of books I didn't get to read when I stumbled upon them the past few...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Random, Little Things that Make Me Extra Happy in Books

I couldn't really think of a good title for this top ten list because it's a bit random. I just really wanted an excuse to talk about how much I love it when characters make fun of other characters for brooding and saw my chance. Don't judge me. We all have them though, the random, little things that just kind of tickle us inside, make us squeal, make us laugh out loud every time, make us mark...
