Bookish Musings: I Want More Books about… Supernatural Slice of Life & Gritty Supernaturals (+ Some Recs!)

I started this "I Want More Books About..." series a while ago, made a bunch of posts, and then never got around to posting any more than that first one. Oops. But hey, I'm finally doing another one! And this time it's about---surprise, surprise---supernatural creatures! I kind of stumbled upon both of these... sub-subgenres, and it turns out I love them, so let's chat about it, and hopefully you...
 

Bookish Musings: My 2018 Bookish Stats

This turned out to be a surprising reading year. Many of the books I was most anticipating ended up being mediocre, and many of my favorites were books I almost didn't read and thought wouldn't be quite right for me. Another strange thing is that I didn't do a lot of series binges. I also read far less vampire books than usual. So yeah, a bit of a strange reading year for me, but I still...
 

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books I Read in 2018 (+ Some Non-Bookish Things)

I've already shared with you all my favorite covers and favorite characters from books I read in 2018, so that means... it's finally time to share my favorite books! I don't know why I keep calling these posts "Top Ten" when I never manage to stop at just ten. My blog is just full of lies. It sounds good as a post title though, you know? Anyway, I'm excited, as I always am for this post, because...
 

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read (and Games I Played) in 2018

It's time to talk about characters! Everyone loves a good character, right? I know I do. One of the difficulties with this post in particular is that there are multiple different ways to "like" a character. Sometimes I like a character for who they are, and I probably want to be best friends with them. Sometimes I think a character is complex and interesting, but I don't necessarily like them...
 

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,...
 

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...
 

Bookish Musings: Can You Guess Which Supernatural Creature Said These Quotes? (A Quiz!)

To celebrate Wyrd and Wonder 2018 (a bookish/blogging fantasy event taking place during the month of May), I thought it'd be fun to make a quiz! And it's no secret that I love supernatural creatures, so what better topic? Some of these quotes are probably pretty obvious, some are more vague, some might be tricks ;-) It's hard to find quotes for something like this, and I wasn't going to sit...
