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...

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Paranormal Creatures I Like to Read About

I love urban fantasy and paranormal romance, so I absolutely couldn't resist my chance to talk about my favorite genres. And one of the things I love most is seeing the different way paranormal creatures are portrayed by different authors. I usually prefer the "good" kinds, the ones who are the protagonist or the love interest or the best friend and are technically monsters but still have a good...

Getting mixed up in the plans of an evil faerie, however, shifts things from merely complicated to life-threateningly dangerous, and Violet ends up allying with the last person she ever...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books on my Fall TBR

This TTT topic could not have come at a more PERFECT time. I almost never plan my books ahead of time. I read whatever I feel like reading whenever I feel like reading it. I did plan books this month because I just so happen to be doing my own Series September Reading Challenge, but that's also the reason I now have a whole list of books I didn't get to read when I stumbled upon them the past few...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Random, Little Things that Make Me Extra Happy in Books

I couldn't really think of a good title for this top ten list because it's a bit random. I just really wanted an excuse to talk about how much I love it when characters make fun of other characters for brooding and saw my chance. Don't judge me. We all have them though, the random, little things that just kind of tickle us inside, make us squeal, make us laugh out loud every time, make us mark...
