Taylor Swift Book Tag

Taylor Swift Book Tag

Uncategorized | May 21, 2015

The Taylor Swift Book Tag, created by The Book Life, pairs book titles to Taylor Swift’s songs. I saw it go around a bunch of blogs a while back, and it looked like SO MUCH FUN, so I put it on my list to get around to sometime even though nobody had actually tagged me. Psh rules! We […]

ARC Book Review: Valiant by Sarah McGuire

ARC Book Review: Valiant by Sarah McGuire

Book Reviews | May 20, 2015

When I first heard about Valiant, a fairy tale retelling with gender bending set at court and involving battles with giants, I knew I had to have this book in my life. It had so many of my favorite things that I couldn’t resist. And while I’m late in reviewing the book because the release date was moved […]

I was blanking for this week’s freebie topic, until Steph from Cuddlebuggery suggested failed cover redesigns. OH YES. I am prepared to talk about iffy cover redesigns all day erry day. (Though in making this, I’ve discovered there are […]

ARC Book Review: Illusionarium by Heather Dixon

ARC Book Review: Illusionarium by Heather Dixon

Book Reviews | May 18, 2015

Having heard amazing things about Dixon’s debut, Entwined, that I have had on my shelf for years but shamefully not read yet, when the option to review Illusionarium came up, I jumped on that instantly. I’m generally a sucker for all things labeled steampunk anyway. But. Well, I think I may have learned my lesson not to jump […]

ARC Book Review: Made You Up by Francesca Zappia

Book Reviews | May 15, 2015

When I first heard about Made You Up, I was instantly excited about it. I’m usually all about the light and fluffy contemporaries, but a main character with schizophrenia? A completely unreliable narrator, unsure of what is real and what is not? That was a premise that was way too interesting to pass up. And I’m glad I […]

Unpopular Opinions Tag

Unpopular Opinions Tag

Uncategorized | May 14, 2015

I saw Christina (A Reader of Fictions) and Gillian (Writer of Wrongs) doing this last week, so obviously I considered myself tagged for reasons (mostly being that this looked like fun). This tag originated on Booktube, apparently, so I did not make it but I will gladly answer these questions! A popular book or series that you didn’t […]

ARC Book Review: Lion Heart by A.C. Gaughen

ARC Book Review: Lion Heart by A.C. Gaughen

Book Reviews | May 13, 2015

The Scarlet series by A.C. Gaughen has been one of my favorite ongoing series since I dove into it last year, so obviously I started reading Lion Heart with equal parts excitement and nervousness. Gaughen has been all about the brutal endings so far, but surely she’ll give us a happy ending here, right? Lion Heart delivers a […]

I’ve been lucky enough to meet some of my very favorite authors: Samantha Shannon, Tahereh Mafi, Kody Keplinger, Cora Carmack, Sarah J. Maas, and Neil Gaiman – but obviously, there are still a bunch that I wish I could […]
