Book Review: The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

Book Review: The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | December 18, 2014

It’s here. The end of an era. The end of Percy Jackson. NO NO, DON’T CRY, DEBBY. Breathe. In many ways, this was a nice conclusion to the Heroes of Olympus series, but in other ways, I couldn’t help but be frustratingly disappointed. So this review will be a long one. You’ve been warned. The Blood of Olympus […]

Sometimes I watch the movie/TV show first

Sometimes I watch the movie/TV show first

Uncategorized | December 17, 2014

Among us hardcore readers, I know there is a bit of a stigma against people who watch the movie or TV show first. Well, I’m gonna just say it: sometimes I do. And I don’t feel like there’s anything wrong with that – and I wish the judgment would stop. Why watch first?! I’ve confessed before that I […]

ARC Book Review: Love and Other Theories by Alexis Bass

Book Reviews | December 15, 2014

*sigh* I knew that I was taking a risk in picking up Love and Other Theories. See, it sounded like it could be AWFUL, but it could also be the exact kind of banterfluff I love. Because, I mean, what’s more banterfluffy than a main character who stubbornly refuses to get into a real relationship? I mean, sex […]

Ship-Defining Quotes – a.k.a. ASDFJKL; MY FEELS

Uncategorized | December 12, 2014

Shipping. Such a wonderful thing. Such a huge hobby of mine. Of course, there are a lot of different types of ships, which I’m planning on writing another discussion post about sometime soon, but today I wanted to focus on one shipping-aspect: when the whole of the ship can be defined by one quote. And any time you […]

ARC Book Review: When Joss Met Matt by Ellie Cahill

ARC Book Review: When Joss Met Matt by Ellie Cahill

Book Reviews | December 11, 2014

One of my favorite author discoveries in 2014 has to be Liz Czukas – I loved Ask Again Later and Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless – so when she announced a new adult book under a pen name, it was pretty much at the TOP of my wishlist. When Joss Met Matt is banterfluffy perfection, with plenty of […]

Hello my lovelies! As you can probably tell by the title, today it’s officially GIVEAWAY TIME! I don’t do a lot of giveaways here on Snuggly Oranges, particularly not this year, primarily because of financial reasons.
