TTT: Books to Reread

I’m a huge fan of rereading. I don’t do it nearly as often as I’d like to because there are so many other new to me books to read that I get wrapped up in, but if someone told me that I could only reread books for the rest of the year, these would be…

TTT: Favorite Opening Lines

Oh, heck yeah. Opening lines are my favorite. There’s definitely a theme going with mine, too, as you’ll see below, and uh, I’m not ashamed, I pretty much do the same thing with my opening lines.

TTT: Reasons Why I Love Fantasy

This week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic is reasons why I love blank, and well, I’ve been talking a lot about different mythical creatures lately, so it makes sense that my blank is going to be fantasy.
