Book Review: The Pirate of Fathoms Deep (Tales of the High Court Book 2) by Megan Derr

A year and a half ago, Lesto was punched in the imperial pavilion by Shemal, a pirate criminal; but unable to deny the chemistry between them, they snuck away to an empty room later that day where they did far more inappropriate things before Shemal immediately ran off, and neither has been able to forget the other since. When Lesto gets kidnapped and dropped on Shemal's doorstep, both men are...
 

Book Review: The High King’s Golden Tongue (Tales of the High Court Book 1) by Megan Derr

Prince Allen has trained his whole life for something like this---learning as much about the languages, politics, and in-and-outs of royal court as possible---and now he's been chosen to be the High King's Consort... which is why he's crushed when High King Sarrica humiliates him and dismisses him from court mere minutes after meeting him. Sarrica never planned on taking another consort after...

The Weekly Update: 7/23/17

Honestly I considered not even posting today because I'm tired and stressed, plus my arms are bad this week. But this was already half finished, so it seemed like a waste of arm pain to not just post it in case any of you are interested in what books I got/read over the past week. Oh! I almost forgot, I watched Descendants 2. I thought the first movie was really silly and not very good, but I...
 

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...
 

Book Review: Wriggle & Sparkle by Megan Derr

Lynn is a kraken shifter who's great at his job working for the Federal Bureau of Paranormal Security and Investigation, but his attitude and inability to play well with others has always had him going from partner to partner to partner. But then he gets paired up with Anderson, a unicorn shifter who may come in a pretty package but can give snark just as well as he can take it. Neither one has...
 

The Weekly Update: 9/4/16

Well, it's been another uneventful week for me in "real life." But uneventful is better than bad, so that's ok. Let's see, what else... Did you all know that you can "shuffle" and "repeat" playlists on YouTube? I did not. I want to assume it's a new feature just so I don't feel like such an unobservant idiot, but I don't think it is lol. I listen to a lot of playlists on YouTube though, so that...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Mountains

The topic of mountains ended up being harder than I thought it would be, so I went with a rather lax interpretation while looking for covers. That means hills, cliffs, mesas---really any of sort of relatively large, earthy, dirt-filled clumps of land---were all fair game in my mind. I feel like most of the covers I found have legit mountains, but then, I live where it's so flat that even a...
