Bookish Tag Post: You’re Not Good Enough Tag

This sounds like it's going to be a really sad or mean kinda tag, right? But don't you fret, it's actually really fun. The way it works is, you take 30 characters from books you've read, you choose two to use for each question, then you decide which is the better of the two for the answer. I tried to keep this as random as possible, so I chose the books mostly randomly by using my Goodreads...
 

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...
 

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 Review: The Blood Curse (Spell Weaver Book 3) by Annette Marie

Clio and Lyre still don't have the KLOC spell, and they don't know what Bastion is planning to do with it, but they do know they have to stop him before he starts a war. But Bastion isn't the only enemy trying to kill them, and Lyre isn't sure it's even possible to defeat his...
 

Bookish Tag Post: The Book Blogger Memory Challenge Tag

I just randomly searched the web for book tags one day and found this one at The Book Nut. The original doesn't seem to be around anymore. It seemed like an interesting one since it's different. Here's how it works: You must answer these questions without looking anything up on the internet and without looking at your bookshelves! That's it. Depending on your memory and books you've...
 

Update: Life and Books (1/14/18)

I haven't posted one of these update posts since the 31st, so of course I have to say, it's a new year! And a new year has brought with it a new post title! Yep, I switched from "The Weekly Update" to "Life and Books" since these posts aren't weekly anymore. I'm trying out the new title, seeing how I like it. Anyway, I am having the most amazing start to my bookish year! (If only my real life...
 

Book Review: The Shadow Weave (Spell Weaver Book 2) by Annette Marie

Having escaped the Underworld, Clio and Lyre's next step is to get to the Overworld in order to convince Bastion that the stolen KLOC spell is too dangerous to use. But first they'll have to find someone who can bring them to the Overworld, which won't be easy considering all the reapers and assassins after them, including...
 

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books I Read in 2017

Yay, it's finally that time when I get to rave and fangirl about my favorite books of the year! Am I the only one who spends pretty much the entire year looking forward to this post? Anyway, as per usual, I made the graphic before the post, and, well, I have 11 instead of 10. (Well, technically I have 22 because of series.) But the more the merrier, right? Definitely. More books always = more...
 

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read in 2017

This post was harder than I thought it would be. Not because I didn't read about any great characters but because---and this sounds weird to say---I don't know what I should consider my "favorite" anymore. Characters who are complex and superbly well-written? Characters who are likeable people? Characters who make me feel for them? Characters I want to date or be friends with? So I decided to...
 

Book Review: The Night Realm (Spell Weaver Book 1) by Annette Marie

Clio's home is in danger, on the verge of war with a neighboring caste of daemons, and she's been stuck living on earth among the humans. With the ability to see and mimic magic, Clio agrees to go to the Underworld to spy on the master weavers who specialize in dangerous and lethal magical in order to copy some of it. But she had no clue how danger she'd be in, and she wasn't expecting Lyre, the...
