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...
 

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...
 

Bookish Musings: 10 Book Quotes about Blood

Believe it or not, I've been wanting to do this post for a while (what with all the vampire books and urban fantasy I read, I come across a lot of quotes about blood), but it's kind of an odd topic, so October just seemed like the perfect time for it! Technically they're not all about blood, but they do involve blood in some way or another. Some I chose because they're funny, others because...
 

Bookish Musings: 10 Book Quotes about Night

A.K.A. 10 book quotes for nyctophiles, like me! You might not know this, but I love the night. I've mentioned before that the "Moonlight" part of my blog name is actually a reference to my love for the night rather than the actual moon. I've always been a night owl. Everything---reading, watching movies, working out, driving, talking (especially talking)---is just better after the sun goes down....
 

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...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Male Characters from Books I’ve Read This Year (2015)

Unlike with female characters, there never seems to be a shortage of male characters I like. I often prefer a male protag, but, even as love interests and side characters, they can be just as great. Also, I find it amusing that only 6 of the 16 characters mentioned are normal humans. Not sure if that says more about my taste in books or my taste in men ;-) Anyway, these characters deserve a...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Female Characters from Books I’ve Read This Year (2015)

It's actually not often that I find female characters I love or even like. It's not that I don't like females---I am one! But I don't seem to relate to them as often in books. Maybe it's just how they're written, what with all the pressure there is on writing females. That's why, when I do find one I like, I get ridiculously excited and obsess over them. And I'm so happy to found a few amazing...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Series I’ve Read This Year

I had to edit the topic a bit because I literally had NOTHING for the original. Finished series that I want to read and have started but not yet finished? What is that? What does that even mean?! I'm a binge reader! If I like a series, I'll read a book, sometimes two, a day until I finish it. I just can't help myself. Seriously, I don't understand all you people who can just take a year long...
