Duology vs Trilogy vs Standalone

Ah yes, the age old argument. What is the perfect number of books for a series? Or perhaps we don’t need a series at all, and we should just have all standalones forever (okay, no thanks, though). The truth is, there is no right or wrong to this, it’s all down to preference and circumstance, […]

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. It’s my favorite genre, and while I mostly stick to writing urban fantasy, high fantasy is where it’s […]

TTT: Books Featuring Food

We’ve all got them: reading pet peeves. Whether you hate love triangles with your whole being or you want to groan in despair every time someone smirks, we’ve all got at least one reading pet peeve that makes us want to throw our books at a wall. Mostly figuratively, but sometimes literally. My friend has […]

TTT: Purple Prose

Ah, yes, purple prose, the thing everyone loves to hate and ya girl over here is always down for. I don’t know what it is, I just love language that’s stupidly superfluous and totally over the top. I feel like I don’t shout about the books on this list a whole lot, so why not […]

TAG: Seven Heavenly Virtues

Oh boy, I’m about to remember that I think vice & virtues are stupid, and that the fact that chastity is a virtue makes me want to set a lot of things on fire. Y’all, do whatever the hell you want with your life. It’s your life. Vices & virtues are dumb. Life your life […]

TTT: Book Hangover

When I was talking to my friend about what my blog posts were going to be about for February, she saw this topic and shouted, “I know what the first one is!”  (She’s totally right.)  Book hangovers are both the absolute best and worst.  I’m always so happy to have found one because YES KILL […]

TTT: Romance Isn’t Dead!

I did one of these last year, though it wasn’t really a cohesive post, and it was mostly just a place for me to scream about my OTPs, whether they were in books or not.  Realistically, that’s probably half of what’s about to happen, but here are my top ten favorite romantic books! (Note: these […]

Favorite Male Characters

I felt like the boys were a little left out last month when I was screaming about my favorite female characters, so here we are again! I just embarked on a reread of The Raven Boys the week before CDTH came out, so uh, yeah, this list is Gansey’s fault, actually. As before, this is […]

FFF: Books Over 500 Pages

Okay, I know it’s Saturday, but I was such a slouch yesterday, so I didn’t do any blogging whatsoever, and I love the topic for Friday Favorite Five from Way Too Fantasy this week, so here I am! I’m always down for a good tome, especially in fantasy, but I hadn’t quite realized how many […]
