Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read in 2020

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read in 2020

Next up for my end of the year posts is characters! The lifeblood of books! I just thought it was interesting to note that four of these are main characters, one is a love interest, three are side characters, and two are kind of cheating since I chose all the main characters. I could ramble some for the intro, but eh, no point in wasting time, let's just get to all of the characters I loved...

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2020

It's the end of another year, and that means it's time to do all my bookish end of the year posts! Yay! I don't do a lot of posts about book covers anymore, but I do so love a pretty cover. Good artwork and/or good, cohesive design *chef's kiss* So anyway, here are all my favorite covers from the books I read in 2020! *I did my best to find cover artists, but I just couldn't find the...

Update: Life and Books (Oct 2020)

This post is going up on November 1st, and the US presidential election is the 3rd (though apparently there's going to be a delay for results). So depending on when you see this, I'm either very worried, very upset, or very relieved. Well, moderately relieved, at least. Fingers crossed, everybody. Now, what did I do in October? I watched (well, mostly listened to, thank you Netflix for the...
 
Book Recs: 10 Books about Characters with Unique Hobbies/Passions

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. That's why I've compiled a list of ten books I've read about characters who...
 
Cover Characteristics: Black, White, & Green Book Covers

Cover Characteristics: Black, White, & Green Book Covers

I've been doing these color themed cover posts every so often, and, you might not have noticed, but I've actually been doing them in order of the rainbow. I've already done red, orange, and yellow, so today we've reached green! Green was significantly harder than I thought it'd be. I mean, it's green! You'd think that wouldn't be hard to find. I also ran into the issue of such varying shades...
 
Cover Characteristics: Black, White, & Red Book Covers

Cover Characteristics: Black, White, & Red Book Covers

What's black and white and re(a)d all over? These book covers! *cricket sounds* Now that that's out of the way... I know I've used a lot of this week's covers before, but that's because they're awesome. So in your face. I know that didn't make any sense, but my brain is too hopped up on all the gorgeous redness of these covers right now for something as mundane as sense! No but really, I think we...

Book Review: Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet by Charlie N. Holmberg

Maire doesn't remember anything about her life or who she was prior to a few years ago when she was found on the side of the road, but she knows that she has the magical gift to infuse emotions and abilities into the treats she bakes. When marauders raid her town one day and kidnap her, she gets sold to a strange man who somehow knows of her talent and wants to use it to make money. But amidst...
 
Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Silhouettes

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Silhouettes

You don't even KNOW how tempted I was to make this week all red, white and black covers. I don't know why so many silhouette covers are those colors, but I'm sure not complaining. Anyway, this was not hard, but it still wasn't as easy as I thought it would be to find ten I really loved. Part of the problem is that there's a big overlap between this topic and book covers featuring circus, and I...
