Book Recs: 5 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books Set in the Old West

Fun Fact: When I was a little kid, there were two things I wanted to be---a mermaid, and a cowgirl. I don't even know why I wanted to be a cowgirl, but I would run around the house pretending I was riding a horse and lassoing things. That was the entire extent of my knowledge on cowgirls---horseback riding and lassos. To be fair, I did kick ass at those arcade shooting gallery games (I once got a...
 

Book Recs: 5 Merfolk Books to Check Out

It's #Mermay! That time of year when artists start flooding Twitter and other social media with gorgeous drawings of mermaids, mermen, and merpals of all genders and even species.

Book Recs: 10 Books about Characters with Unique Hobbies/Passions

I love reading about characters who have a hobby or something they're passionate about, especially when it makes a big appearance in the book. Usually these are things I don't know much about, so they're really interesting to me. And of course they add another layer to the character and help me understand them more.

I can't promise you books that have absolutely nothing related to romance whatsoever, but I did manage to find some...
 

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.

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,...
