Book Recs: My 5 Favorite Books in 5 Years of Blogging

Book Recs: My 5 Favorite Books in 5 Years of Blogging

My blog is five years old! (Well, a couple days ago, if we're being exact.) And although lately I haven't been blogging as much as I used to, I still love books, and I figured a fun way to celebrate my blogoversary would be to talk about my favorite books and series. I decided to stick with finished series, because that made it less complicated, but it's also all the more reason to give some...
 
Update: Life and Books (May/June 2020) + I Finally Made Some Art This Year!

Update: Life and Books (May/June 2020) + I Finally Made Some Art This Year!

It's been two months since I did one of these posts, and I still have nothing to talk about. No significant changes to my life or my health or my family or anything. Though the US has been a mess lately, hasn't it? Just wear masks, please. And stay home if you can. And remember that Black Lives Matter. And remember that trans women are women and trans men are men, regardless of what a certain...

Bookish Tag Post: Olympic Book Tag

Bookish Tag Post: Olympic Book Tag

I wasn't planning on doing this tag since I've never actually done any tags before, but I figured this would be my one and only chance since the Olympics don't last very long and won't be around for another four years... So here I am! Doing my first tag. I have to admit I don't watch many of the sports, but, since I used to be a gymnast, I am always super excited about the summer Olympics just...
 
Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Traits that Make Me Love a Character

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...
 
Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Read in 2015

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...
 
Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Male Characters from Books I’ve Read This Year (2015)

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Male Characters from Books I’ve Read This Year (2015)

Unlike with female characters, there never seems to be a shortage of male characters I like. I often prefer a male protag, but, even as love interests and side characters, they can be just as great. Also, I find it amusing that only 6 of the 16 characters mentioned are normal humans. Not sure if that says more about my taste in books or my taste in men ;-) Anyway, these characters deserve a...
 
Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Words of Wisdom from Books I’ve read This Year

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Words of Wisdom from Books I’ve read This Year

I'm finally back to TTT! I haven't participated the past few weeks because the topics weren't for me, but quotes? I couldn't resist quotes. The problem though is that I love quotes too much. I'm a quote fiend. I regularly highlight (in my Kindle, no need to have a conniption about me defacing my books, fellow book lovers) between 50 and 100 quotes in any given book I read. And considering I've...
