Update: Life and Books (12/30/18)

It's December 31st! One year is ending, and a new one is beginning. Call me what you will (some would go with pessimist, I say realist), but I'm not feeling very positive about it, not when all my problems from this year are just carrying over into the new one. But I know no one wants to end their year by listening to me complain, so luckily I do have some good things to share about the past four...
 

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books I Read in 2018 (+ Some Non-Bookish Things)

I've already shared with you all my favorite covers and favorite characters from books I read in 2018, so that means... it's finally time to share my favorite books! I don't know why I keep calling these posts "Top Ten" when I never manage to stop at just ten. My blog is just full of lies. It sounds good as a post title though, you know? Anyway, I'm excited, as I always am for this post, because...
 

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 (10/7/18)

Hello, everyone! It's been another month since I did a Life and Books post. I might just make these a monthly thing from now on. I'll see what I feel like doing. Just to update everyone on my teeth, I had another root canal, but that's it so far. It feels like something might be wrong though, so I'm giving it some time to heal, seeing what happens, and hoping like hell that I won't need to...
 

Bookish Tag Post: You’re Not Good Enough Tag

This sounds like it's going to be a really sad or mean kinda tag, right? But don't you fret, it's actually really fun. The way it works is, you take 30 characters from books you've read, you choose two to use for each question, then you decide which is the better of the two for the answer. I tried to keep this as random as possible, so I chose the books mostly randomly by using my Goodreads...
 

Bookish Musings: Can You Guess Which Supernatural Creature Said These Quotes? (A Quiz!)

To celebrate Wyrd and Wonder 2018 (a bookish/blogging fantasy event taking place during the month of May), I thought it'd be fun to make a quiz! And it's no secret that I love supernatural creatures, so what better topic? Some of these quotes are probably pretty obvious, some are more vague, some might be tricks ;-) It's hard to find quotes for something like this, and I wasn't going to sit...
