Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books/Series I Read in 2022 + Some Non-Bookish Things

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books/Series I Read in 2022 + Some Non-Bookish Things

My favorite books of the year! Who doesn't love talking about books they loved? Some of these were ones I'd been looking forward to, and they didn't disappoint. Some were sort of spontaneous reads. Some I didn't really know if they'd be my kinda book, but they surprised me in the best way. So here, in no particular order, are my top ten(ish) reads of 2022, plus a few other things I...
 
Book Review: Dream On (The Hunter and the Spider Book 4) by E.M. Jeanmougin & Jay Wright

Book Review: Dream On (The Hunter and the Spider Book 4) by E.M. Jeanmougin & Jay Wright

🌟One of my faves!🌟 Back in NY, Jasper is still struggling with the trauma of what he's been through recently and feeling even worse because it's affecting his relationship with Crimson. But Crimson's family is in town, as well as a new stranger who may have answers about Jasper, and there's always some new trouble and danger the pair have to deal...
 
Update: Life and Books (Sep 2022)

Update: Life and Books (Sep 2022)

Well, September was a month. And it's over now! I never know how to start these posts anymore. I call these "Life and Books," but as it turns out, life is usually either too boring to be worth talking about or too complicated to want to talk about, and I pretty much just talk about books, games, music, podcasts, and movies/shows instead. Speaking of which... I found this really cool cover of...
 
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 😅 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!

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

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...
