Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books/Series I Read in 2020 + Some Non-Bookish Things

*Announcer voice blasts out over the speakers*: And now... it's time for the main event! The cream of the crop! The cherry on top! The one, the only, the top ten books of the year post! RAAAAAAHHHHHHHH (Just humor me and imagine crowd sounds here.) Well that was fun! Maybe I should intro all my blog posts with an announcer... Anyway, this has been a weird year. Perhaps that explains why it was...
 
Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read in 2020

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read in 2020

Next up for my end of the year posts is characters! The lifeblood of books! I just thought it was interesting to note that four of these are main characters, one is a love interest, three are side characters, and two are kind of cheating since I chose all the main characters. I could ramble some for the intro, but eh, no point in wasting time, let's just get to all of the characters I loved...
 
Book Review: The Usual Apocalypse (The Society Book 2) by Christine Price [+ Audiobook]

Book Review: The Usual Apocalypse (The Society Book 2) by Christine Price [+ Audiobook]

🌟One of my faves!🌟 When Matt set out to find the long-lost brother of one of his last case's victims, he didn't expect to stumble into a relationship and fall in love with the man once he'd found him. But between Matt's workaholism that ruins all his relationships and the dangerous case he's currently on, their relationship might be doomed from the...
 
Book Review: In Darkness Bound (The Society Book 1) by Christine Price [+ Audiobook]

Book Review: In Darkness Bound (The Society Book 1) by Christine Price [+ Audiobook]

When telepathic college student Chris gets kidnapped and put into an underground supernatural research facility, he immediately forms a bond with Vance, one of the only other patients there. But both men also have feelings for the compassionate former-patient, now-assistant Simon, and they'll have to find a way that they can all escape if they want to be...
 
Update: Life and Books (Feb 2020)

Update: Life and Books (Feb 2020)

So, February is over, and it's been... a month. Not a good one, not a particularly worse than usual one, just a month, for me, at least. I tried three weeks of physical therapy for my weird nerve problem in my forehead, but I don't know if it's helped at all, and I'm just completely exhausted. My body can't take leaving the house that much. I'm going to try continuing with using a TENS machine...
 
Book Recs: 10 Lesser-Known M/M Vampire Books

Book Recs: 10 Lesser-Known M/M Vampire Books

That's right, it's me, your friendly neighborhood vampire-loving book blogger, back with another post full of vampire book recommendations! Here's my previous post, if you'd like to see it. This time, it's all about the M/M* ones. *Many of these are more urban fantasy than strictly romance, but they all have m/m romance as part of their story. I admit it's been a while since I've read some of...
 
Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books to Read If You’re in the Mood to Laugh

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books to Read If You’re in the Mood to Laugh

This week we've been given a partial freebie for Top Ten Tuesday: "Books to Read If You're in the Mood for..." But my whole blog is practically books to read if you're in the mood for sci-fi/fantasy, and I don't even have ten recommendations for books in any other genre. That's why I thought it'd be fun to do something more specific---funny books! I don't know about you, but sometimes I just am...
 
Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Read in 2015

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)

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 Paranormal Creatures I Like to Read About

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Paranormal Creatures I Like to Read About

I love urban fantasy and paranormal romance, so I absolutely couldn't resist my chance to talk about my favorite genres. And one of the things I love most is seeing the different way paranormal creatures are portrayed by different authors. I usually prefer the "good" kinds, the ones who are the protagonist or the love interest or the best friend and are technically monsters but still have a good...
