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...
 

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 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...
 

Book Review: Steal the Day (Thieves Book 2) by Lexi Blake

When Daniel gets back in town and Zoey gets an offer from some angels who can help her get her friend back from the Hell Plane, Zoey accepts---now all they have to do is steal the necessary artifact and attend the Vampire Ball. But nothing goes quite according to plan, and the emotional tension between Zoey, Daniel, and Dev rises as Zoey continues to deal with her feelings for both men while all...
 

The Weekly Update: 6/18/17

So... the acupuncture did not go well. It hurt (not terrible, but like getting blood drawn), and I spent the entire appointment, plus the whole rest of the day, freaking out because needles. Maybe acupuncture just isn't for me period, but I also didn't like the practitioner. I felt like she didn't listen to me, and she didn't take my fear seriously at all; she just started stabbing needles all...
 

Bookish Tag Post: Birthday Party Book Tag [Original]

It's my birthday today! So even though I would normally post a review on Fridays (if I post at all), I decided to switch it up today and post not only a tag but one that I created! I actually looked for birthday book tags, but the only one I found was good but not really what I was looking for, so I just created my own. Problem solved! And since I love those kinds of tags where you choose some...
 

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books I Read in 2016

Yay, it's time for one of my favorite posts of the whole year because this is the post in which I get to talk about ALL the books that I loved most all at once! It's a post full of happiness and good feelings, and I get to reminisce about the highlights of my reading year. What more can any book blogger ask for? Anyway, I debated how to do this. I mean, there are standalones, there are complete...
 

Bookish Musings: 10 Book Quotes about Blood

Believe it or not, I've been wanting to do this post for a while (what with all the vampire books and urban fantasy I read, I come across a lot of quotes about blood), but it's kind of an odd topic, so October just seemed like the perfect time for it! Technically they're not all about blood, but they do involve blood in some way or another. Some I chose because they're funny, others because...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Feathers

Feathers are interesting little things, aren't they? And pretty. But did you know peacock feathers are considered to be bad luck, especially for performers? I learned that in a book (Girl on a Wire, to be precise), which seems very fitting considering this is a book blog. There's also a belief that "feathers appear when angels are near" and that feathers are a message from loved ones who have...
 

The Weekly Update: 2/7/16

So, this has been a... week. On the downside, I had a doctor's appointment that got canceled the morning of, and rescheduling is causing me a bit of an issue. But on the upside, my bent window is finally fixed! But on the downside, the man did literally the same exact thing I tried, except it randomly worked for him which made me look like an idiot. But on the upside, I got a compliment at the...
