Top 5 Tuesday | 5 Fantasies that Need a Prequel

I’ve realized today that I don’t really wish for a prequel in any genre other than forms of Fantasy. There’s something about the start of some Fantasy novels that begs the question, ‘how did we get here?’  I don’t think any of these would be books with a happy ending, but I think I’d still […]

Top 5 Tuesday | 5 Excellent Hype Books

I perpetually run from overly hyped books, so it wasn’t easy to come up with five.  I also noticed that most of them tend to be Fantasy, so when I do get bold it tends to only be in that genre. I have a feeling these may be on a few of our lists today. […]

Top 5 Tuesday | 5 Authors I Want to Meet

Today’s Top 5 Tuesday is all about authors you want to meet.  I’ve realized over the last few years that authors just don’t travel to Michigan, so basically this feels like a pipe dream because I never travel out of Michigan. Still, here are 5 of my favorite authors that I would love to see at a […]

Top 5 Tuesday | I Will Go Down with these Ships!

I’ve been looking forward to this week’s Top 5 Tuesday! I love talking about my favorite relationships, and I can’t wait to see what everyone else picked too! Oddly enough, I’ve just realized that I didn’t choose any YA stories at all.  There have been YA ships I’ve adored, but maybe (seeing as I’m 38) […]

Top 5 Tuesday | Rewarding Cover Buys!

This was SO hard!  I realized how rarely I actually buy a book on cover alone.  I usually base my selections off my friends reviews, authors I already like, or just my gut feeling.  With the five books below, my gut feeling wasn’t so sure, but there was no way I could pass up those […]

Top 5 Tuesday | Intimidating Books!

It’s funny this is the Top 5 Tuesday today, because intimidating books have been on my mind lately.  I was thinking about writing a Flights of Fancy about it, but now I get to talk about it right here. I’ve recently realized as I’ve gotten older my ability to read tomes has decreased.  It’s not […]

One Proud Momma

To coincide with Baby Chick’s Nevernight review, I wanted to share a new piece of artwork she did, inspired by the Nevernight series! It’s now my new favorite piece!  She’s so talented!

Top 5 Tuesday | Series I want to start in 2018!

This weeks Top 5 Tuesday was really eye opening!  I didn’t even realize how much I plan for Fantasy books to dominate my reading in 2018! 4 out of 5 series I chose below are Fantasy series, or a subtype of fantasy.  Huh… I guess I see what this years trend will be. Top 5 […]

Top 5 Tuesday | My 2018 Book Bucket list!

There are a LOT of books I meant to read last year, but I didn’t get to them.  It was a little hard narrowing it down to 5, so don’t hold me to it! The five I chose are ones that I stopped at the most, and almost picked them up.  In 2018, I’m definitely […]

2017 Best of the Best | Part 2

Each passing year flies by faster and faster.  Everyone used to warn me that as I got older, the time would start moving faster too.  They were right, and it sucks!  I’m haunted by how fast my daughter is growing up, especially because it reminds me just how old I’m getting.  On the bright side, […]

Top 5 Tuesday | New Authors I love!

Wow, setting up this weeks Top 5 Tuesday taught me something!  I discovered a lot of my favorite authors in 2016! You know what else I learned?  2017 was my year for discovering authors due to Blogging!  Every single one of selection can be attributed to other bloggers raving. I guess I really have all […]

Book Scavenger Hunt

This was another fun tag that I couldn’t pass up.  I tagged myself, after I saw this on Kristin Kraves Books.  There was something about the scavenger hunt aspect that sounded fun. I’m not sure if I read a lot of random books, but I actually had an easy time locating most of these on […]

Top 5 Tuesday | Five Warm Winter Reads

I have a hard time coming up with seasonal books.  I don’t really read any books based on season.  Luckily I did have 4 that popped into my mind when I started thinking about wintery/Christmasy books that I loved. I chose two from my childhood, one from my teenage years, and two I read in […]

Five-Star Read Predictions

It seems like everyone is doing a Five-Star Read Predictions post, and I have to say it’s been looking like a lot of fun.  Reading Steph’s at Lost: Purple Quill was just the push I needed.  So, thanks Steph!  And thanks for letting me use your ‘Five Star Predictions’ image.  It’s gorgeous! This challenge was […]

Top 5 Tuesday | I Demand a Spin Off! -Pretty Please?

I don’t know what it is about series, but I’m never ready for it to end.  I’m one of the readers that always want more, even if it’s in a spin off. I’m not sure why I am so eager, it’s not like I haven’t been burnt before.  Sometimes series should end! Anyway, this weeks […]

The Book Aesthetic Tag

I love Aesthetic’s!  They’re so beautiful.  I wasn’t actually tagged for this, but it’s so unique and interesting.  I love tags that with a unique spin to them, so I wasn’t going to let this pass me by.  Thanks to Michelle @ The Writing Hufflepuff who was the creator of this amazing tag! Rules Thank whoever nominated […]

Top Ten Tuesday | Because Mommy Said So!

This is a topic I’ve thought about an awful lot.  I even created a shelf on Goodreads titled ‘Should be Required Reading’, and it’s full of books that I think teenagers should read, ones that I’ll steer my own daughter towards as she matures. I’ve included some of those here, but I’ve also included books […]

End of Summer Book Tag

Okay, so obviously it’s waaay past summer and that means I’m super late here.  BUT, it’s still fall which means the end of summer is still fresh in my mind.  Plus, I was nominated by Mandy at Book Princess Reviews and I can’t pass it up.  Thank you, Mandy! Now, let’s go back in time […]

Hocus Pocus Book Tag

I’m not sure if people know how much I love Hocus Pocus, of if it was just a fluke, but I was tagged for the Hocus Pocus Book Tag by two different wonderful blogs!  So the first thing I want to do is thank Naty at Naty’s Bookshelf, and Rebecca at My Life as a […]
