Update: Life and Books (12/2/18)

I wanna start by letting my fellow bloggers know that I've not been avoiding you all! I've just not been doing a good job of bloghopping lately because I'm still having dental problems (here's the latest update about that---basically I've already been to 9 appointments and still have at least 10 or 11 more at the very minimum, including at least one minor surgery, but it'll probably turn out to...

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.

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...
 

Bookish Musings: 10 Book Quotes about Blood

Believe it or not, I've been wanting to do this post for a while (what with all the vampire books and urban fantasy I read, I come across a lot of quotes about blood), but it's kind of an odd topic, so October just seemed like the perfect time for it! Technically they're not all about blood, but they do involve blood in some way or another. Some I chose because they're funny, others because...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Historical Fantasy Books I’ve Read

This topic came at a perfect time because I've recently discovered, contrary to what I previously believed, that I really like historical fantasy. I know historical *fantasy* is not quite the same as non-fantasy historical books since they often alter the history, but I've found they still make interesting use of the settings and cultures, and it's still different than if the book had been set in...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Read in 2015

I'm pretty sure I've already talked about all these books and series roughly 27 times each this year, but what can I say? They are my favorites! They're also the books that don't get the attention they deserve---something I keep trying to change! (Some of these first in series are free on Amazon, so check 'em out!) I have had an AMAZING book year though and am keeping my fingers crossed that next...
