Flights of Fancy | A Rose by Any Other Name?

I’ve realized something about myself lately, and I’m finding it a little bit alarming.  I need to know if I’m the only one out there with this affliction! I struggle to remember the names of characters when I’m not actively reading the book!  The second I put the book down, I struggle to remember the […]

You’re Not Good Enough Tag

Lia posted this tag over on her blog Lost in a Story, and it honestly looked like so much fun! I had to swipe it!  I liked the idea of throwing character I’ve read into each scenario and figuring out who the better bet would be. Basically the rules of the game are that you […]

Top Ten Tuesday | Happy Mother’s Day!

Ten Books with Stellar Mom’s! I spent a lot of time deliberating on what theme I should take with Top Ten Tuesday’s Mother’s Day theme.  I was actually leaning toward a post about mom’s who should be better.  Here’s the deal though, Mother’s work so hard and this day is supposed to be about celebrating […]

Flights of Fancy | Characters I Couldn’t Steal

I’ve got a new topic for you, one that might be a little strange, but it’s one my friend and I talk about.  Over and over.  A pretty much identical conversation each time it happens. We randomly start talking about the fictional characters that we love so much we want to rip them out of the […]

Top Ten Tuesday | Gimme the Good Stuff

10 Things I Need More Of When I read the topic for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday I didn’t think I’d be joining in.  It wasn’t until I went back to the list and reread that my mind started thinking of things I’d like to see more of in a book.  I realized how many […]

Lucky in Love – Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

When I started thinking about St Patrick’s Day, my first thought was about how there are those couples that are lucky in their partners.  There are books out there with the well balanced pair, like Claire and Jamie, but it seems like there are quite a lot of books that are unbalanced and one couple […]

Subconscious Gender Bias

I pride myself on being a real world feminist.  I believe women are equal to men in every way, and that includes our strengths and our weaknesses.  We’re just as capable of greatness, but we can also share the same flaws.  This is something I know deep in my foundation. However, when I read a […]

To My Valentines,

First, Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you! I know this is considered a ‘commercial’ holiday, but I actually really enjoy Valentine’s Day.  It’s a happy romantic day, and it’s very close to my birthday.  It’s a month of goodies, and me being doted on.  Maybe that sounds terrible, but as a wife and mother, I […]

Personality Doppelganger

As a reader, I tend to look for ways that the characters I’m reading about are like me, or are like I was as a kid.  I think it’s something that most imaginative people do, if they’re readers.  We enjoy relating to these fictional characters, maybe because it makes it easier for us to imagine […]
