Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Paranormal Creatures I Like to Read About

I love urban fantasy and paranormal romance, so I absolutely couldn't resist my chance to talk about my favorite genres. And one of the things I love most is seeing the different way paranormal creatures are portrayed by different authors. I usually prefer the "good" kinds, the ones who are the protagonist or the love interest or the best friend and are technically monsters but still have a good...
 

Book Review: The Faerie Guardian (Creepy Hollow Book 1) by Rachel Morgan

Violet's job as a Guardian-in-Training is to protect humans from fae, but, when she accidentally brings a human back to the faery realm and develops feelings for him, things get complicated. Getting mixed up in the plans of an evil faerie, however, shifts things from merely complicated to life-threateningly dangerous, and Violet ends up allying with the last person she ever...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Eyes

This topic is such a good one! I mean, there are so many book covers with eyes as the main focus. I have like 10 on my kindle alone, and that doesn't include the million more out there that I don't own. But of course that also means I was once again struck with indecision and ended up going with ten picks rather five, including some books from the same series because they were too gorgeous not to...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (6)

My past week was fairly uneventful, but, unfortunately, I have a stressful one (well, probably more than one, but we'll see) coming up. I've gotten as far ahead on posts as I could, so they're still scheduled to go up even if I'm not on the computer. (Don't you just love being able to do that?!) For some reason though I always end up with a few typos and issues that I don't catch until the post...

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Wishes I’d Ask the Book Genie to Grant Me

This week is kind of an extra fun Top Ten Tuesday, is it not? I mean, who doesn't dream about all the things we'd have if we could have anything in the world. And even though books are pretty magical on their own, let's face it: we're all crazy bookworms, so I'm sure most of our dreams already have to do with books anyway. They do say be careful what you wish for, and I agree with that, but...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers Featuring Phones

It's another week of Cover Characteristics, and I'm just so glad we're past the TV week, haha. This week it's phones! Honestly, I don't understand how people lived before phones were invented. Not even just cell phones but landlines. Do you ever think about that? I mean, people had to just go to someone's house and knock on their door, hoping they were home, if they wanted to talk. Or they had to...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (5)

This was a really slow, unproductive book week for me. I ended up starting three different books, all books I want to read, but they just weren't what I *felt* like at the time. I've hit another "I have 500 books and nothing to read" slump. (That sure didn't take long -_-) And I'm very much a mood reader. If I'm not in the right mood for a certain type of book, it can ruin what would otherwise be...
