Book Recs: 10 Lesser-Known M/M Urban Fantasy Series

Book Recs: 10 Lesser-Known M/M Urban Fantasy Series

I love paranormal and urban fantasy! I could give tons of recommendations, depending on how loosely you define "urban fantasy." For this, I tried to stick to what most people probably think of---our world (though maybe with known existence of magic), modern times, not too slow or rural, at least some action/battles---though I did slip a few in that don't fit the criteria perfectly. I could give...
 
Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books/Series I Read in 2021 + Some Non-Bookish Things

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books/Series I Read in 2021 + Some Non-Bookish Things

Time for my last, but certainly not least, blog post of the year. My favorite books and series! (Also games and podcasts and one movie and one show, because why not!?) I guess I really don't need to ramble here, the post will speak for itself. So out of the roughly 150 books I read this years, here are my ten(ish, because series) favorites, in no particular order except for the last two, and...
 
Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read in 2021

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read in 2021

Characters! I love 'em. But I especially love some of them. And that's what this post is about! As I sometimes do, despite the post title, I've included a couple non-book characters. This is my one chance to really gush about all the characters I love, I'm not gonna pass that up. I have to admit, taking up five of the ten (technically twelve) spots, this is a vampire-heavy list πŸ˜… I do...
 
Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2021

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2021

I love pretty book covers! They can definitely entice me to read a book I probably wouldn't have been quite interested enough in otherwise. Or make me more excited for a book I already wanted to read. Or make me want a print copy, just so I can look at it whenever I want. So, as I think I've said before, this is a post I really look forward to each year. I included some runners-up, but I...

Update: Life and Books (June 2021) + Late Mermay Art!

Let's see, what did I do in June... I finally watched Cats (2019)! To be honest, I didn't hate it. It was weird, like everyone said, but some of the songs were fun, and I liked the dancing. I loved the Magical Mr. Mistoffelees! Munkustrap was pretty adorable too. I think most of the weirdness was just from the original story making no sense (from what I know of it), rather than the movie...
 
Book Review: Friends in Low Places (The Hunter and the Spider Book 2) by E.M. Jeanmougin & Jay Wright

Book Review: Friends in Low Places (The Hunter and the Spider Book 2) by E.M. Jeanmougin & Jay Wright

🌟One of my faves!🌟 Jasper is back with the hunters in order to keep Crimson (werespider) and his new friends safe, but Jasper has difficulty balancing being a hunter with his new understanding that not all demons are bad. Meanwhile, there's a murderous vampire pack in town, and things get complicated when Jasper and Crimson both end up in danger because of...
 
Book Review: Strangers in the Night (The Hunter and the Spider Book 1) by E.M. Jeanmougin & Jay Wright

Book Review: Strangers in the Night (The Hunter and the Spider Book 1) by E.M. Jeanmougin & Jay Wright

🌟One of my faves!🌟 Jasper has trained his whole life to be a hunter, but when he's assigned to pretend to befriend a werespider, Crimson, in order to take him down, he realizes not all demons are monsters. The two become genuine friends, maybe more, but they have a lot of enemies, including the hunters who aren't letting them go that...

Update: Life and Books (Jan 2021)

So. It's been a month. An attempted coup. A second impeachment. An inauguration. Stock market stuff. At least some of those things are good! Still, it's just been a lot, on top of personal life, health, etc. I decided to go back and add a background to the Jacovine vampire smut I shared over a year ago but never really got to finish because that was when my head nerve problem started. The...
