Book Review: Romancing the Dark in the City of Light

Book Review: Romancing the Dark in the City of Light

I’ve been staring at this empty screen for a while, wondering what the hell I’m supposed to say at this book. Usually middling ratings lead to lots of things to hash out but right now I’m just at a loss for words. This book was strange – in many good ways, and many not-so-good ways. It’s not my typical read, but I’m glad I picked it up anyway, though I’m not sure how to recommend it. Romancing the Dark in […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Quit… But Not For Good

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Quit… But Not For Good

 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Bookish Things We’ve Quit So this week’s topic was kind of a vague one; it just had to be things we quit – series we’ve abandoned, books we didn’t finish, tropes we are done reading. But I thought that was a little more negative than I wanted to be this week, so I’ve decided to showcase 10 books I’ve quit… but hopefully not for good. […]

Book Review: Truly Madly Famously

Book Review: Truly Madly Famously

This series! There is honestly only one reason I read these books: drama. I’m not here for any kind of profound commentary on American Celebrity. I’m not looking for thought-provoking character depth. I’m here because I am INVESTED in this damn love triangle, I have picked a team, and I will go down with this ship. This series is definitely not for you if you don’t like love triangles because that is the central conflict driving these two books so […]

Book Review: Pretending to Dance

Book Review: Pretending to Dance

The original synopsis I read for this book did not mention a very key part of the story – that a fair amount would be told from present-day, adult Molly’s point of view, and her struggles with the process of adopting a baby. I wish I could find that blurb, but it’s lost wherever emails go when trash folders are emptied. I think this synopsis – which very much set up Pretending to Dance to be the thriller that it definitely isn’t – […]

Monthly Wrap-Up: September 2015

Monthly Wrap-Up: September 2015

I need to start journaling or taking notes or something because I have no idea what I did this month. I guess the highlight of the month was camping outside various toy stores and GameStops with Mike for the big Amiibo release earlier this month. Oh and starting my Funko collection that same day, too. I had a handful just from gifts or various subscription boxes, but now I have about 20 and I can’t stop myself! Other than that, […]

Top Tuesday: If You Like That, Read This

Top Tuesday: If You Like That, Read This

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic: If You Liked This, Read This! I had a lot of fun doing this week’s post. I know I like some books that are pretty off the beaten path, and I love getting the chance to share those titles with other readers. Obviously, there are still some well-known titles on here, but hopefully this will help you find something new to add to your TBR! I […]

Do You Judge A Book By Its Author?

Do You Judge A Book By Its Author?

For three years now, author-blogger interactions have not been an easy field to navigate. 2012 was a very rocky year for us in the book world, but it has been getting better. Admittedly, this doesn’t usually happen with traditionally published authors – but when it does happen with them, in cases such as Anne Rice, it’s nuclear. I can go on and on about how author’s should deal with these situations, and how bloggers/readers can deal with them as well, […]
