Book Recs: 10 Lesser-Known M/M Vampire Books

That's right, it's me, your friendly neighborhood vampire-loving book blogger, back with another post full of vampire book recommendations! Here's my previous post, if you'd like to see it. This time, it's all about the M/M* ones. *Most of these books are not technically romance. I used the term 'M/M' because they all have male characters who are either gay or bisexual and/or in a relationship...
 

Book Recs: More September/October 2018 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Releases to Get Excited About

You might have noticed the start of a pattern. I do a "Month/Month Releases" post, and a month later I do a "More Month/Month Releases" post. You're probably thinking, "Why doesn't Kristen just do these posts one month at a time if she's doing one a month? This seems overly complicated, and also, these post titles are way too long." You are not wrong about the titles, dear reader, but the...
 

Book Recs: September/October 2018 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Releases to Get Excited About

A new month, a new upcoming releases post! And as usual, there are some amazing-sounding books coming out that I'm excited for. A lot of sequels, actually, which seems to be a common thing for me in the fall months, for some reason. BUT, even if you haven't read the previous books in all of these series, it's never too late to start ;-) And there are some new series and standalones on my list...
 

Book Recs: More June/July/August 2018 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Releases to Get Excited About

Whew---try saying that title five times fast! ;-) In my last upcoming releases post, I wasn't able to include all the books I wanted to because they didn't all have covers or blurbs or Goodreads pages or even titles yet. I also knew I would end up finding more books I hadn't known about yet because that's always how these things go. So I'm back, and I'm just as excited to share with you all...
 

Book Recs: 5 Diverse Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books Set in the US

Today, the day that I'm originally posting this, is the 4th of July. Independence Day, for the United States! And while we're celebrating the US, I thought it would be great idea to celebrate the diversity we have, so I've decided to share some diverse/inclusive books that are set here. I came up with this post idea at the last minute, so I had to keep it short, but hopefully you'll still...
 

Book Recs: 10 LGBT+ Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books by LGBT+ Authors

I think we can all agree that inclusivity and diversity in books is great. And what better way to support diversity in gender and sexuality in books than by supporting the LGBT+ authors who write them? So here are some amazing books that I've really enjoyed and definitely recommend if they sound like your kinda...
 

Book Recs: June/July/August 2018 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Releases to Get Excited About

Wow, that title was a mouthful! Next year I plan on sticking to two months at a time, but I started on an even month this year, so I'm making do. Anyway, here are some June/July/August 2018 releases that sound fantastic. I'm very grateful to have actually gotten ARCs for most of these, so this includes some books I haven't read and am looking forward to myself as well as some that I've already...
 

Book Recs: April/May 2018 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Releases to Get Excited About

Guess what everyone? This is my first upcoming releases post! I've seen them around a lot, and they seem like fun, and I like getting excited for upcoming books, so I thought I'd give it a shot ;-) You'll have to bear with me while I experiment and figure out exactly how, and how often, I want to do these. Also, since I've always liked to support self-pub/indie authors, I'm going to try and make...
 

Book Recs: 10 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books with No Romance

In honor of Valentine's Day, I have decided to make a post for all the people out there who are NOT looking for love! Well, not in books, at least ;-) Romance in books is great. I like it. I really do! But, on occasion, I'm just not in the mood for it. And a book doesn't have to have romance to be amazing! I can't promise there's not a single mention of romance or feelings in all of these,...

It's December! And that means Christmas all the time everywhere all over everything. So... what better thing to post about than Christmas-themed sci-fi/fantasy books?! I haven't actually read all of these, and some of these I have read but didn't love, but everyone has different taste! So these aren't so much personal recommendations as just me bringing some Christmas books to your attention...
