Bloggy Musings: Do You Talk About Sex Scenes in Your Book Reviews?

I know this is a discussion that not everyone will be able to participate in since not everyone reads books with sex scenes, but it seemed interesting, so I couldn't help myself. The way I review has evolved since I first started blogging, but so has what I'm comfortable talking about in my reviews. And when it comes to sex scenes in books, I've seen all different ways of handling that,...
 

Book Review: Mongrels by Stephen Graham Jones

A young boy has grown up listening to his grandfather's tall tales about werewolves only to discover one fateful day that they were all true.

Cover Characteristics: Black, White, and Yellow Book Covers

Ahhhhh this post was so hard. It's been sitting in my drafts forever because I just could not find ten covers I loved that had only black, white, and yellow. I guess yellow on its own is a hard color to work with since there aren't a whole lot of usable shades, and it can be hard to see yellow against a white background. It's also very bright and could end up hurting people's eyes if not used...
 

[Audio]Book Review: The Utterly Uninteresting & Unadventurous Tales of Fred, the Vampire Accountant (Fred, The Vampire Accountant Book 1) by Drew Hayes

Unfortunately for Fred, becoming a vampire didn't make him the smooth, suave, exciting creature of the night he imagined it would. But between werewolves, necromancers, zombies, mages, a girlfriend, and some new para-human friends, his unlife is becoming significantly more interesting than his life ever...
 

Update: Life and Books (6/17/18)

Long time no talk! I have not done one of these posts for a month. I normally do them every other weekend, but I just wasn't feeling up to it. I kind of didn't even feel like posting one today. It's just been a tough time for me lately. Lots of stress, anxiety, and feeling rundown because of health/medical stuff. But I like to show what books I've gotten and read, and they pile up too much if I...

Bookish Musings: My Current Bookish Infatuations

This post is completely random. I just felt like talking about the things I'm super into right now. Is this post pointless since I'll probably end up doing recommendation posts for all these topics at some point? Will I ever do one of these posts again? Will it become a feature? Will these things turn into long-lasting, passionate bookish love affairs, rather than mere infatuations? Maybe even...
