Book Recs: 10 Books about Dragons… Kinda

Book Recs: 10 Books about Dragons… Kinda

As a fantasy lover who leans more to the paranormal/urban fantasy side of the genre, and who usually sticks to smaller or romance-focused stories when reading high fantasy, I don't tend to read a lot about your average scary, large, fire-breathing kind of dragon. I have, however, read some books about dragon shifters, humanoid dragons, half-dragon beings, and dragons who are otherwise somewhat...
 
Book Recs: My 5 Favorite Books in 5 Years of Blogging

Book Recs: My 5 Favorite Books in 5 Years of Blogging

My blog is five years old! (Well, a couple days ago, if we're being exact.) And although lately I haven't been blogging as much as I used to, I still love books, and I figured a fun way to celebrate my blogoversary would be to talk about my favorite books and series. I decided to stick with finished series, because that made it less complicated, but it's also all the more reason to give some...
 
Bookish Musings: Character Names I’ve Mispronounced

Bookish Musings: Character Names I’ve Mispronounced

This is just a quick, fun post because I haven't done any fun posts or discussions in a while. I had really wanted to get something else posted today, to be honest, because I have a couple posts that really ought to be posted at the beginning of the year, but oh well. My headaches have been too much of a problem lately, and those posts require too much staring at the computer screen, so hopefully...
 
Book Review: Steel & Stone Companion Collection (Steel & Stone Book 6) by Annette Marie

Book Review: Steel & Stone Companion Collection (Steel & Stone Book 6) by Annette Marie

๐ŸŒŸOne of my faves!๐ŸŒŸ Ash, the terrifying Draconian, and Lyre, the playful yet cunning incubus, were by Piper's side throughout the entire Steel & Stone series ever since the night everything went wrong and they accused of stealing the Sahar. But Ash and Lyre were loyal friends to each other for a long time before that, and each had their own secrets and experiences. This book gives a glimpse into their minds with...

Book Review: Unleash the Storm (Steel & Stone Book 5) by Annette Marie

๐ŸŒŸOne of my faves!๐ŸŒŸ Piper, Ash, Lyre, and the draconians are hiding in the Underworld, but they soon find out that Samael may not be their only threat.

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 Female Characters from Books I’ve Read This Year (2015)

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Female Characters from Books I’ve Read This Year (2015)

It's actually not often that I find female characters I love or even like. It's not that I don't like females---I am one! But I don't seem to relate to them as often in books. Maybe it's just how they're written, what with all the pressure there is on writing females. That's why, when I do find one I like, I get ridiculously excited and obsess over them. And I'm so happy to found a few amazing...

Book Review: Reap the Shadows (Steel & Stone Book 4) by Annette Marie

๐ŸŒŸOne of my faves!๐ŸŒŸ Seiya and Lyre are still missing, Ash is still recovering from his injuries, the situation between the Gaians and the daemons is only getting worse, and Piper is on her own to figure out what to do next. But then Raum shows up looking for Ash's help, more discoveries are made about the Gaians, and Piper and her friends have to do everything they can to stop the impending daemon war before it...
