The Weekly Update: 1/8/16

It has been a fairly uneventful week for me. I'm just kind of really extra tired because of all the construction noises -_- I'm finally going to buy myself some peppermint oil to use for the ant problem today though (if I remember). I haven't seen any lately, so they might be gone, but I was wrong about that once before, so I'll use the peppermint oil just to be sure since apparently they don't...
 

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Male Characters from Books I Read in 2016

Alright, peeps. It's that time of year again when I tell you all about my favorite characters! I know this probably won't be my most popular post, but I love it nonetheless because characters are my lifeblood. They are what gives me the emotion and the feels when I read, and that's what I love most in books. I might still sometimes give a book a high rating even without great characters if it's...

The Weekly Update: 7/3/16

-_- Do you see that face? That is my face right now. Can you guess why? Can anybody guess why? MY LAPTOP IS STILL BROKEN. Three times. THREE TIMES I sent it in already, and it's still doing the exact same thing. And I say with complete honesty that I do not see how it could be anything I did since I didn't even get the chance to use it the other times, and this time all I've used it for is a bit...

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books to Read If You’re in the Mood to Laugh

This week we've been given a partial freebie for Top Ten Tuesday: "Books to Read If You're in the Mood for..." But my whole blog is practically books to read if you're in the mood for sci-fi/fantasy, and I don't even have ten recommendations for books in any other genre. That's why I thought it'd be fun to do something more specific---funny books! I don't know about you, but sometimes I just am...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I’ve Enjoyed Recently That Weren’t My Typical Genre

I LOVE PARANORMAL AND URBAN FANTASY. Human-like creatures (e.g. vampires, incubi, ghosts, witches, shifters, demons, etc.) are my jam. I also love historical fantasy, magical realism, dystopian, post-apocalyptic, and even the occasional genetic-engineering or cyborg book. So those are the genres I read. Therefore, those are the genres this post will not be about. But I like certain genres for a...
