Book Review: The Paper Magician (The Paper Magician Book 1) by Charlie N. Holmberg

Ceony has graduated from the Tagis Praff School for the Magically Inclined, but she's disappointed to find out she's been assigned to learn paper magic as the one and only magic she'll get to perform for the rest of her life. She's also not too sure about her quirky instructor at first, but, when Emery's heart is stolen by a flesh magician, Ceony risks it all to travel inside it and save him,...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Reasons I’m Thankful for Books

I think it goes without saying that all of us book lovers are thankful for books, but how often do we actually stop to think about it? I'm thankful for every writer, every editor, every publisher, every artist, every supportive friend and family member, every inventor, every teacher, every translator, every reader, and every single person throughout time who has impacted and influenced things to...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Fish

I'm really excited about this week's cover characteristic (Do I say that every week? I feel like I probably do.), which is odd because I don't like fish. I don't like how they smell, how they taste, how they feel. I dislike fishing even more. What I do like, however, are the book covers I found! Some of them are actually some of my all-time favorites. It was a little difficult to find TEN good...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (10)

I know everyone keeps saying things like this, but I can't believe November is almost over! It feels like December has snuck up on me before I could get done any of the things I needed to before the coming month. *Sigh* I did have a pretty good bookish week though! I tried something new, I read some good books, I spent a few hours at the bookstore, and I delivered on the sci-fi reviews I...
 

Book Review: The Eve (The Eden Trilogy Book 3) by Keary Taylor

For the first time since The Evolution, the colony has a plan and humanity actually has a chance to beat the Bane.

Book Review: The Human (The Eden Trilogy Book 2) by Keary Taylor

Despite the colony's new location, they aren't going to be safe for long because the Bane are getting even smarter and more efficient than anyone realized and a group of shady outsiders from another colony has plans that could either save or destroy New Eden. As Eve struggles to cope with her overwhelming feelings, discovers big secrets from her past, and fights for her life and the lives of...
 

Book Review: The Bane (The Eden Trilogy Book 1) by Keary Taylor

The world has been taken over by Bane, contagious creatures that are now more robot than human, due to a medical cure gone wrong, and the Bane are only getting smarter. Eve doesn't remember anything from before "The Evolution" except her name, but she's willing to fight against the Bane with her small colony of humans, determined not to let her growing feelings for both Avian and West or the...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Words of Wisdom from Books I’ve read This Year

I'm finally back to TTT! I haven't participated the past few weeks because the topics weren't for me, but quotes? I couldn't resist quotes. The problem though is that I love quotes too much. I'm a quote fiend. I regularly highlight (in my Kindle, no need to have a conniption about me defacing my books, fellow book lovers) between 50 and 100 quotes in any given book I read. And considering I've...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Books

Bookworms are weird. Case in point: Book photography. I told my friend about it one day, and she didn't get it. To her, the cover was the art, so why do you need a whole picture? We just do because they're so pretty and we like to touch them and look at them and arrange them with other pretty things and can never have enough of them and that's just how much we love books. Which brings me to the...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (9)

Hello, my lovely fellow readers and bloggers! Unfortunately, once again, I don't have a whole lot to say. It was another slow week on the blog, only three posts, but two of them were about AMAZING books that you should totally go read, so that counts for something, right? It was also kind of a slow, but still exhausting, week off the blog. I think the most exciting part of it would either have to...
