Giving Thanks Book Tag

Giving Thanks Book Tag

I found this tag while trying to think of a Thanksgiving-type post for today since I wasn’t a huge fan of the TTT topic. I obviously wasn’t tagged to do it, and the original BookTuber deleted their channel. Anyway, here is the Giving Thanks Book Tag! If you see this, I’m tagging you. 1. Name a book that made you thankful you live in your world and not the book’s world. Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire […]

Book Review: The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma

Book Review: The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma

This was my first Nova Ren Suma book, but it will absolutely not be my last. In fact, I’m tempted to go grab my copy of 17 & Gone off my bookshelf right now. I had no idea what to expect with this book, but I went into it, excited and really hoping I’d love it. And holy crap, I loved it. It’s almost the end of October and I feel pretty confident that this book is going to be […]

Bekka’s Five Star Predictions

Bekka’s Five Star Predictions

I’ve seen this around BookTube quite a bit, starting with Mercy’s Bookish Musings. I had been in a reading slump for the better part of October, so I decided not to take part right away. But now that I’m reading again and planning out all my end-of-the-year bookishness, I wanted to give this a go. The idea is to pick a handful of books you think you’ll rate five stars. This was harder than I thought, because giving out five […]

Falling in Love With Fantasy

Falling in Love With Fantasy

It’s no secret that fantasy books aren’t really my thing. I usually turn towards contemporary, science fiction or even horror books before fantasy books. But over the past 2 or so months, something has changed and I’ve found myself really into the fantasy genre. I’ve even given some fantasy books higher praise than contemporaries lately. It’s a weird shift that I wasn’t expecting and I also don’t know how long it will last. Like most bloggers, I do have a […]

Book Review: Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee by Mary G. Thompson

Book Review: Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee by Mary G. Thompson

By now you all know how much I love my dark contemporaries, but in all honesty, I didn’t expect this one to be as dark as it was. I expected it to be more of a creepy doll story, and it was to some extent, but it was a hell of a lot darker than I expected. I figured out very early on why there were four names in the title. I had my suspicions before I started reading and […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters Who Make Great Leaders

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters Who Make Great Leaders

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week we’re discussing characters who make great leaders bekka’s picks 1. Starr from The Hate U Give. Starr will go down as a favorite character of mine. She is brave in the face of enormous injustices and threats of violence. She speaks up where others are afraid to do so. She fights for what she believes in. I just love her to absolute pieces and I want Angie […]

Tropes and Styles I Do Not Like

Tropes and Styles I Do Not Like

Before I started blogging, I didn’t really read with a critical eye. And to be honest, I didn’t read a whole lot either. I basically liked everything I picked up, when I bothered to read a book. But now I read a LOT. Maybe not as much as a lot of book-internet-types, but much more than the average person, and much more than pre-internet Bekka. Over the years I’ve been able to hone my critical eye – and I’ve been […]
