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...
 

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: 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...
 

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...
 

The Weekly Update: 9/3/17

Whew! It has been over a month since I have done a Weekly Update, and I have so much stuff to share all in one post now that it's a little overwhelming. I'm still not sure I'll be doing these every week though. I might switch to every other week or monthly. I'll figure something out eventually....
 

Book Review: The Heart of the Lost Star (Tales of the High Court Book 3) by Megan Derr

Kamir has been interested in High Commander Jader for years, but it's a fantasy he knows will never come true, not when he's the family disgrace---married at 16, pregnant at 19, now divorced with two children, about to be disowned by his parents, and still dealing with an ex he thought he'd never have to see again. Jader grew up an Islander after washing ashore there with no memory at the age of...
