Book Review: A Destiny of Dragons (Tales from Verania Book 2) by TJ Klune

Sam finally has his cornerstone, he's surrounded by friends and family, he's even bonding with Prince Justin (kinda), and life is great---until his grandmother shows up and tells him he's part of a prophecy and has a destiny involving the five dragons of Verania and an evil man of shadows. Sam doesn't want to part of a destiny, but he'll do whatever it takes to keep his loved ones safe... if he...
 

Book Review: The Lightning-Struck Heart (Tales from Verania Book 1) by TJ Klune

Sam is the apprentice to the King's Wizard, and he's hopelessly in love with Knight Commander Ryan Foxheart even though Ryan is dating the prince. But when Prince Justin is taken by a dragon, Sam, Ryan, Gary (Sam's hornless gay unicorn best friend), and Tiggy (his half-giant other best friend) are all sent to get him back. Sam thought he could protect his heart and move on, but, the more time he...
 

The Weekly Update: 6/11/17

I feel like my blog used to be a much more fun place, whereas now it seems like it's been all book reviews and unhappy weekly updates :-/ It's just that my tennis elbow has been really bad. Even reading hurts because I have to hold a book or kindle and flip the pages. I don't want to give up blogging because it makes me happy, but I may have to take a break for a while. Or only post once a...
 

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...
 

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2016

So you know how I usually choose ten covers/series for my Cover Characteristic posts? Well... Hahahahahahahahaha---Not happening this time. I don't know what happened this year, if it was just coincidence or if I started judging books more by their covers and letting myself be drawn in by all the pretty ones, but I read SO MANY books with gorgeous covers this year, and I want to share them all....
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Birds

I don't really have any sort of special affinity for birds, but I've noticed they seem to be on A LOT of book covers. So here we are! I've got birds that are featured prominently, birds in the background, single birds, flocks of birds, detailed birds, silhouetted birds... ok now this just sounds like a sales pitch. Anyway, here are the...
 

Book Review: Murmuration by TJ Klune

It's 1954, and Mike has a good life in the small town of Amorea---he never has to worry about crime, he runs his own bookstore, he plays poker with his friends in the evenings, and he's very nearly got his own fella, if only he'd gather up the courage to take the next step forward and ask him out already (something the entire town is rooting for). But then strange things start happening to Mike,...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/23/16

Let's see, what news do I have this week... Well, I voted! (I had a mail-in ballot.) If ever there were an election when every vote counted, I think it'd be this one. If nothing else, my vote will at least cancel out the vote of one person in my family -_- I also made a new cat friend! I don't have my own cats to take cute photos of, but I do have...
