Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Mirrors

Sometimes when I start searching for book covers, I think a topic will be easy, but it turns out to be difficult. Well, this time, I had the opposite problem. I couldn't find crap when I was actually looking. But then book covers with mirrors just started popping up everywhere. And since I start most of my posts ahead of schedule, I just kept bookmarking webpages until I finally compiled them...

Bookish Musings: What Do You Listen To While Reading, Writing, and Blogging?

This is a very exciting post for me, guys, because it's my first discussion post ever! Hurrah! *cue the cheering* I decided, however, to keep it simple and talk about something everyone can join in on no matter what type of books you read or what you like/dislike when it comes to reading. And really, what is more universally loved than music? I love pairing books and music and think music is...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Bookish Goals for the New Year

Since I haven't said it yet, happy New Year to everyone! But here's the thing: I don't believe in New Year's resolutions. The concept behind them is great, but they backfire. They put into our minds that, the moment we falter, the whole thing's a bust, and now we have to wait until next year to try again. But we don't! It doesn't have to be the first day of a new year to make a change. It doesn't...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Jewels

The first Cover Characteristics post of 2016! And who'd have thought it'd be such a hard one? Book covers with jewels turned out to be so much harder to find than I thought they would be. But, as usual, hunting down the covers is part of the fun, especially since I always end up finding more books to add to my TBR and more free ebooks to download. I'm not a jewelry person myself, but I did manage...

It's almost Christmas! Which means Santa is coming! Which means bookworms all around the world are putting the finishing touches on the list of books they want to get because, really, do we even include anything else on our lists? My book wishlist is entirely way too long, but I have somehow managed to rein ̶d̶e̶e̶r̶ it in and choose the ten I'd most love to get in paperback. You better be...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers from Books I Read in 2015

Now that 2015 is coming to an end, I really wanted to share some of the amazing book covers I have fallen in love with. But I've realized I'm kind of a bitch when it comes to book covers, and I've become one even more so as the year has gone on and I've seen more and more of them. I was going to write this whole spiel about what I do and don't like in book covers, but I've decided to save it for...

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...
