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

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

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 hear that quote, you melt. You are one big puddle of feels and you just can’t help it, but whatever, it’s worth it. This phenomenon happens when a spectacularly beautiful ship is complimented by beautiful writing and feeltastic plot moments. So it doesn’t happen ALL the time, […]

Top Ten Characters I Wish Would Get Their OWN Book

Top Ten Characters I Wish Would Get Their OWN Book

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I’m not gonna lie, this was a really hard topic for me! It took quite some time with my thinking cap on, quite some head scratching, and even now I’m not sure I’m 100% satisfied with my list. See, oftentimes when there is an awesome secondary character, those characters get novellas! Or if there’s a secondary character I LOVE, I haven’t finished the series yet, so I’m not sure about their fate. Seriously, my brain needs to stop with this perfectionism because it’s ridiculous. This list […]

Top Ten Characters Who I Would Totally Want To Be For Halloween

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. “IT’S ALMOST HALLOWEEEEEEEEEEEEN!” she yells, as if she lives in a country where Halloween means anything. *cough* But, I mean, dressing up is fun anyway. Last year, for Blogger Trick or Treat, I shared some costumes for book nerds, and I gotta say, dressing up as a book character would be the way to go. So many awesome characters. Such badassery. Here are my top picks. 1. Celaena from the Throne of Glass series: Let’s face it, Celaena’s a freaking bad-ass. I’m worried about the silver […]

ARC Book Review: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

ARC Book Review: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

Sarah J. Maas delivers again with Heir of Fire, the third installment in a high fantasy series that is turning out to be one of my absolute favorites. At 565 pages, this book is HUGE – but I loved it and almost wish it were longer so I could have stayed in that world. And I know this book hasn’t even been released yet, but can I has the next one plz? I’m only slightly addicted. Heir of Fire is what I’ll fondly call the character and world building installment of the Throne of Glass series, because seriously. Sarah J. Maas steps it up and […]

Top Ten Gateway Books If You’re New To Sci-Fi and/or Fantasy

Top Ten Gateway Books If You’re New To Sci-Fi and/or Fantasy

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. This is a really cool topic, actually! There are just SO MANY directions you can go in. I was first thinking of doing an ode to fluffy books, because people write off fluffy books as being dumb and average and whatever and WELL THEY SHOULDN’T – but I quickly realized that that would be mostly a repeat of my list of top ten beach reads. If you are skeptical about fluffy books, then check out that list and GO FORTH. But anyway, I decided rather to […]

Top Ten Characters I Would Want With Me on a Deserted Island

Top Ten Characters I Would Want With Me on a Deserted Island

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Okay, so I have a love-hate relationship with this topic. First I thought, “Huh?” Then I had some IDEAS and was like, “LOL”. Then I got stuck and I was whining. But whatever. So here’s the deal. If I got stuck on a deserted island, first things first – I would establish freaking dominance of that island. Queen Debby rules the world island! So we’re clear on that point. BUT, to be honest, I would not like to be stuck there for all too long. So […]
