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: 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 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 Books to Read If You’re in the Mood to Laugh

This week we've been given a partial freebie for Top Ten Tuesday: "Books to Read If You're in the Mood for..." But my whole blog is practically books to read if you're in the mood for sci-fi/fantasy, and I don't even have ten recommendations for books in any other genre. That's why I thought it'd be fun to do something more specific---funny books! I don't know about you, but sometimes I just am...
 

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,...
 

The Weekly Update: 2/7/16

So, this has been a... week. On the downside, I had a doctor's appointment that got canceled the morning of, and rescheduling is causing me a bit of an issue. But on the upside, my bent window is finally fixed! But on the downside, the man did literally the same exact thing I tried, except it randomly worked for him which made me look like an idiot. But on the upside, I got a compliment at the...
 

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...
