The Weekly Update: 12/4/16

So... I might have carpal tunnel in my right wrist from using the computer too much. Or maybe tendonitis. Or some other joint-related thing? Whatever it is, it's something. And this is a problem, to say the least, because not only do I need to use the computer to blog (which, along with reading, keeps me sane), I also need it in order to work. So I'm really hoping that whatever it is will just...
 

Book Review: Raven (A Creepy Hollow Story) by Rachel Morgan

Raven's dream is to land an internship working for a certain prestigious faerie fashion designer, and she's so close she can almost taste it. But she's fed up with her parents' high society ways, and, when she starts a forbidden romance with one of her guards, the differences between their lives become even more clear, and Raven will have to decide what she values...
 

Book Review: A Faerie’s Curse (Creepy Hollow Book 6) by Rachel Morgan

The Weekly Update: 8/28/16

I don't even know what to talk about this week. I spent my last two weekly updates talking about gymnastics, and now I got nothin'. No, really, that's it for the intro lol. You may proceed to the bookish stuff...
 

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...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Book Quotes About Love and Cats

So this week's Top Ten is all about Valentine's Day---OTPs, love declarations, swoon-worthy quotes, Valentine's Day reads, etc. I was going to go with swoon-worthy quotes, but they proved to be a lot harder to find than I thought they would be. But then I came across some cat quotes and decided an anti-Valentine's Day post would be fun... except I had a bit of a shortage of cat quotes too. So,...
 

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...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (7)

Book-wise, I had a good week. I read seven (yes, SEVEN!) books, most of them at least pretty good. I also got a lot of free ebooks, including numerous ones off my Amazon wishlist that I've wanted for a while that went on sale. Plus, I found a whole bunch of books I really want to read, which doesn't sound like a good thing considering my TBR was already a mile long, but, truth be told, my TBR is...
