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...

Update: Life and Books (Nov 2021)

I can't believe I have to think of yet another intro. I don't do anything, this is too hard! Quick reminder, if you're doing any holiday shopping online, I have affiliate/referral links, and it helps me make a small bit of money or get my own free trials/books/etc. if you use them, at no additional cost to you! As for what I actually did this month... I started and finished playing Milky...

Update: Life and Books (Aug 2021)

Another month, another monthly post in which I have to figure out what to talk about. I played some of the games I bought in the Steam sale last month! The Starfighter: Eclipse game, the one I'd wanted for a long time, was unfortunately a disappointment. Monster Hunting... for Love was fun though. I also played a bunch of very quick, free games by npckc on itch.io. They were cute, and my...
 
Bookish Musings: Opening Lines

Bookish Musings: Opening Lines

I don't think the first line of a book has to be the absolute best. Truthfully, how many people are reading ONLY the first line and then giving up on a book? I do think a great first line can hook a reader who might've been on the fence though. And regardless, I just thought it'd be a fun idea to look at the opening lines of some different books... and have a fight to the death! Just kidding...

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Hearts

This week's topic is hearts! And if you thought I was really crazy enough to base my post on actual, realistic-looking hearts rather than the cutesy heart shape... you would be correct ;-) Ten points to your Hogwarts House. And also ten points to Ravenclaw because this is my blog and I say so. Anyway, I did use some with cutesy heart shapes, but I also used some with realistic-type hearts...

Update: Life and Books (3/11/18)

I still haven't been feeling great. I still have eye strain. I still don't know what, if anything in particular, is causing the recent issues. I'm stressed about a lot of health-related stuff right now. I don't want to get into that. Sorry if I'm a little behind on responding to comments and visiting your blogs. In better news, I went through all the shoes in my old closet---all the boxes way at...
 
Bookish Musings: Top 5 Strangest Book Reviews I’ve Written

Bookish Musings: Top 5 Strangest Book Reviews I’ve Written

I like to think of this post as proof that a) you really don't need to write "professional" reviews to have a book blog, and b) positive reviews can in fact be fun! I also like finding ways to continue talking about great books that I totally recommend and think people should read, since oftentimes books just get forgotten after the review is posted, and this seemed like a good way to do...
