Book Review: Doom Sayer (City of Crows Book 4) by Clara Coulson

When people start rapidly falling ill, Cal and the DSI agents fear some sort of contagion---until a wizard contracts it, causing him to attack a bunch of people in a rage before dropping dead, and Cal can see with his magic-sensing ability that it's actually a curse. When the body count of magic practitioners, including minor practitioners, starts rising, it's up to the DSI to figure out who...
 

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...
 

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: Wraith Hunter (City of Crows Book 3) by Clara Coulson

When a convention center is blown up with magic and a mysterious, riddle-filled letter appears in Riker's office, Cal and his team are assigned to figure out who's responsible for the attack and where the next one will be in two days time. But between possible vampire involvement, the werewolves seeming to know more than they're letting on, the instability of the ICM now that they have no leader,...
 

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books I Read in 2016

Yay, it's time for one of my favorite posts of the whole year because this is the post in which I get to talk about ALL the books that I loved most all at once! It's a post full of happiness and good feelings, and I get to reminisce about the highlights of my reading year. What more can any book blogger ask for? Anyway, I debated how to do this. I mean, there are standalones, there are complete...
 

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2016

So you know how I usually choose ten covers/series for my Cover Characteristic posts? Well... Hahahahahahahahaha---Not happening this time. I don't know what happened this year, if it was just coincidence or if I started judging books more by their covers and letting myself be drawn in by all the pretty ones, but I read SO MANY books with gorgeous covers this year, and I want to share them all....
 

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Male Characters from Books I Read in 2016

Alright, peeps. It's that time of year again when I tell you all about my favorite characters! I know this probably won't be my most popular post, but I love it nonetheless because characters are my lifeblood. They are what gives me the emotion and the feels when I read, and that's what I love most in books. I might still sometimes give a book a high rating even without great characters if it's...
 

Book Review: Shade Chaser (City of Crows Book 2) by Clara Coulson

It's been a couple months since the incident in the first book, things have slowed down a bit, and Cal is trying to get to know his new team members and learn how to cope with the unsettling deja vu he acquired from his trip to the Eververse. But then a werewolf, a wizard, and a former mayor are murdered, causing the different supernatural factions to start blaming each other, and it's up to the...
 

The Weekly Update: 12/11/16

Even though I like to complain about my arguing neighbors, noisy construction, and electronic woes a lot, I try to keep my blog a fairly positive, happy place, but *sigh* I don't feel very positive right now. I've been resting my wrist. Some days I haven't even done anything other than eat, shower, and read. The bad news is, not only does my right wrist still hurt, the left one, and my forearms,...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Traits that Make Me Love a Character

I have no idea what characters other people like or dislike, and I mostly read indie books, so this week's topic is another one of those topics that's just too difficult for me. That's why I've tweaked it! I've come to realize there are certain things that usually make me immediately start to love a character. I'm not talking the typical personality traits like brooding or sarcastic---those are...
