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...
 

Update: Life and Books (11/4/18)

Another month gone by! Did everyone have a good Halloween? I dressed up as a person sitting at home reading and blogging. Because I was a person sitting at home reading and blogging :-P Unfortunately my dental situation is still a mess. No dentist/specialist seems to know anything, I might need implants now (if I'm even a candidate for that), and I can't even find a doctor in my area who a)...
 

Bookish News: November/December 2018 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Releases to Get Excited About

My gosh, did I say I was excited for the releases coming out the last two months? Well, I was. But the next two months---THE NEXT TWO MONTHS. These are some great books, my friends. I already know it. (And this isn't even all of them since the post got long and some aren't on Goodreads yet.) Anyway, we've got demons, elves, shifters, dragons, fae, mages, orcs, and even a human or two. Many of...

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 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...
 

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2017

Gah, you all know how much I love book covers, so I literally look forward to this post all year. I didn't go quite as crazy as I did last year, but I suppose I went crazy enough. But hey, it's the end of the year! And covers are pretty to look at! And people worked hard to make these! So the more, the merrier, I say. But, though I love all of these, I did pick ten to discuss and managed to...
 

Book Review: The Glamour Thieves (Blue Unicorn Book 1) by Don Allmon

JT has finally found a life that isn't full of crime and thievery, and he's happy with it, until Austin shows up after two years away and pulls him into another scheme. The orc and the elf soon find themselves mixed up in more than they bargained for with a gang and a necromancer on their tail, and the history and feelings between them are only muddying things up even...
 

The Weekly Update: 7/16/17

I have some good news! I had a fantastic creative/bookish week! I read/received some books about uncommon supernatural creature MCs, ordered some books with gift card money while they were on sale and I had free shipping, and... I actually wrote something! Like, 3500 words of something! It's about Jacovine because I have #Jacovine4Lyf on the brain. (If you missed the post or have forgotten,...
