Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Words of Wisdom from Books I’ve read This Year

I'm finally back to TTT! I haven't participated the past few weeks because the topics weren't for me, but quotes? I couldn't resist quotes. The problem though is that I love quotes too much. I'm a quote fiend. I regularly highlight (in my Kindle, no need to have a conniption about me defacing my books, fellow book lovers) between 50 and 100 quotes in any given book I read. And considering I've...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Books

Bookworms are weird. Case in point: Book photography. I told my friend about it one day, and she didn't get it. To her, the cover was the art, so why do you need a whole picture? We just do because they're so pretty and we like to touch them and look at them and arrange them with other pretty things and can never have enough of them and that's just how much we love books. Which brings me to the...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (9)

Hello, my lovely fellow readers and bloggers! Unfortunately, once again, I don't have a whole lot to say. It was another slow week on the blog, only three posts, but two of them were about AMAZING books that you should totally go read, so that counts for something, right? It was also kind of a slow, but still exhausting, week off the blog. I think the most exciting part of it would either have to...

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Butterflies

So, butterflies. While not the most difficult topic, you wouldn't think butterflies would be that common on book covers, right? Right?! WRONG. SO RIDICULOUSLY WRONG. I started out well, I knew of a few off the top of my head and found some more on Amazon until I had some nice ones to choose from. But then I had this brilliant idea and was all, "I'll look through my kindle library and my TBR for...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (8)

This past week was a slow week on the blog for me. I didn't participate in Top Ten Tuesday because the topic just wasn't for me, and I didn't end up figuring out a good discussion post like I had wanted to. And I'm not doing NaNo, so I can't even blame my lack of posts on that :-P I've actually just been distracted by some things in my real life, but I'm still trying to get at least one meme and...
