Bookish Musings: Consistency in Series Book Titles

The other week I talked about consistency in series book covers, but what I didn't mention in that post was book titles. And just like I love when covers are matchy and consistent, I love when titles are matchy and consistent too! I would never avoid or dislike a series just for having titles that don't relate, and in most cases it doesn't truly bother me, but it makes me extra happy when the...
 

The Weekly Update: 6/18/17

So... the acupuncture did not go well. It hurt (not terrible, but like getting blood drawn), and I spent the entire appointment, plus the whole rest of the day, freaking out because needles. Maybe acupuncture just isn't for me period, but I also didn't like the practitioner. I felt like she didn't listen to me, and she didn't take my fear seriously at all; she just started stabbing needles all...
 

Bookish Tag Post: Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag

I don't do a ton of tag posts on this blog, but I have to admit, I totally love these types of tags where you choose books and then open to a random page and answer each question with the first word or character name you see. I found this tag on Paradise Found, the original is from Nathan Hale, and this is how it works: 1. Pick any five books randomly (or not randomly, your choice). 2. The first...
 

Bookish Tag Post: Birthday Party Book Tag

It's my birthday today! So even though I would normally post a review on Fridays (if I post at all), I decided to switch it up today and post not only a tag but one that I created! I actually looked for birthday book tags, but the only one I found was good but not really what I was looking for, so I just created my own. Problem solved! And since I love those kinds of tags where you choose some...
 

Bookish Tag Post: NSFW Book Tag

I stumbled upon this book tag on YouTube and it seemed fun, plus I have been slowly losing my filter in regards to all things book-related, so I figured why not? But in case you don't know, NSFW stands for "Not Safe For Work." And, as the title suggests, I will be talking about some inappropriate things! (What fun would it be if I didn't?) So if the topic of sexy times and/or cannibalism in books...
 

Bookish Tag Post: My Harry Potter Life Tag

So I saw this tag over at A Dance With Books, and it looked like so much fun I couldn't resist. It was originally created by The Writing Hufflepuff, and what you do is choose four books, then you use those books to answer the questions. (I recommend choosing books before you even look at the questions, that's what I did, and I think it's more fun that way!) Anyway, here's my Harry Potter life!...
 

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books I Read in 2016

Yay, it's time for one of my favorite posts of the whole year because this is the post in which I get to talk about ALL the books that I loved most all at once! It's a post full of happiness and good feelings, and I get to reminisce about the highlights of my reading year. What more can any book blogger ask for? Anyway, I debated how to do this. I mean, there are standalones, there are complete...
 

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...
 

Quote Love: 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 Tag Post: Olympic Book Tag

I wasn't planning on doing this tag since I've never actually done any tags before, but I figured this would be my one and only chance since the Olympics don't last very long and won't be around for another four years... So here I am! Doing my first tag. I have to admit I don't watch many of the sports, but, since I used to be a gymnast, I am always super excited about the summer Olympics just...
