Bookish Musings: Character Names I’ve Mispronounced

This is just a quick, fun post because I haven't done any fun posts or discussions in a while. I had really wanted to get something else posted today, to be honest, because I have a couple posts that really ought to be posted at the beginning of the year, but oh well. My headaches have been too much of a problem lately, and those posts require too much staring at the computer screen, so hopefully...
 

Book Review: Steel & Stone Companion Collection (Steel & Stone Book 6) by Annette Marie

Ash, the terrifying Draconian, and Lyre, the playful yet cunning incubus, were by Piper's side throughout the entire Steel & Stone series ever since the night everything went wrong and they accused of stealing the Sahar. But Ash and Lyre were loyal friends to each other for a long time before that, and each had their own secrets and experiences. This book gives a glimpse into their minds with...

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)

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 Female Characters from Books I’ve Read This Year (2015)

It's actually not often that I find female characters I love or even like. It's not that I don't like females---I am one! But I don't seem to relate to them as often in books. Maybe it's just how they're written, what with all the pressure there is on writing females. That's why, when I do find one I like, I get ridiculously excited and obsess over them. And I'm so happy to found a few amazing...

Short Story Review: Feed the Flames (Steel & Stone Book 3.5) by Annette Marie

Seiya and Lyre were captured and taken prisoner before Piper and Ash made it out of the Overworld and are trapped. Seiya now has to trust and rely on Lyre, even though trusting people is not her forte, if she wants to escape to safety and find her brother. She finds out, however, that there may more a lot more to Lyre than she previously...
 

Book Review: Yield the Night (Steel & Stone Book 3) by Annette Marie

When the radical group of Gaians blow up the Consulate, kidnap Piper, and unleash her magic, she turns to the loyal Ash and Lyre yet again for help. But this time they all turn to one of the last daemons they thought they'd ally with, Miysis, and trust him to take them on a trip to the Overworld in order to find the one person who might be able to save Piper's...
 

Book Review: Bind the Soul (Steel & Stone Book 2) by Annette Marie

Ash is missing, Samael is eager to wield the power of the Sahar, and Piper doesn't know who to trust or turn to. What she does know is that she's willing to do whatever it takes to both save Ash and keep the world safe from Samael and the Sahar. But when she gets brought to the Underworld, she finds out just how cruel Samael can be and just how far she'll go to save those she cares...
