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...
 

The Weekly Update: 2/14/16

So... I suppose I'm obligated to say Happy Valentine's Day? Happy Single's Awareness Day? Happy Sunday? I can't say I'm celebrating---in fact, I can't say I've ever really done much for Valentine's Day, even times when I haven't been single---but I do always love the overabundance of the color red at this time of year :-P I finally made it to that doctor's appointment that was rescheduled. I...
 

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...
