Shift from First Person to Third Person

I feel like I may make some people mad with this post, so I’m going to disclaimer it right away: I don’t like first person. I can get past it in contemporary, but it sometimes makes me not read a book when it’s in fantasy. This is purely subjective, and it does not reflect these […]

Multiple vs Single POV

I could honestly summarize this entire post down to one point: it’s completely subjective. I’m not even going to argue that one is better than another because that’s the most subjective thing in the world, and just because I think multiple POVs in high fantasy work because of xyz doesn’t mean that’s actually the truth.

Tag: 20 Questions

I saw this over at Jessica @ The Awkward Book Blogger, and my sleuthing ended with a now-deleted blog, so I can’t track back to the beginning of who created it. I was originally going to post another writing post, but given that would be my third this week, and I don’t want to inundate […]

#marywrites Books That Inspired My Books

I think I’ve told the Saintsverse story a million times now–I read the Crows duology over the course of a couple weeks, and when I went to bed one fateful Sunday, it was after finishing Crooked Kingdom. When I woke up, after my usual dreamless sleep, there was a name in my mouth–Landon Ash. I […]

TTT: Favorite Romance Books

I can think of every single one of these books without even trying, and they’re all going to be stupidly predictable. Like, y’all have seen me talk about every single one of these books, with one exception, at least once, and most of them several times. Yes, Emergency Contact is on this list, and yes, […]

Favorite Romance Tropes

There’s just so many. I’m going to try to limit it to my top five, which, like, don’t quote me on this later saying that these are my top five because there’s always something new that I haven’t realized that I love, or something that I’ve forgotten about. And look, three of these are basically […]

January Wrap-Up

Wow, I’m tired. And what a month. I managed to read 4/5 TBR books, and I would have gotten the fifth done no problem if it weren’t for the overwhelming nature of getting a new job that actually trusts me enough to give me work to do. SHOCKING, I KNOW. Anyway, I don’t want to […]

Book Tag: End of Year

I saw this floating around a few weeks ago and kept thinking that there was no way the end of the year had already arrived, but alas, here we are. I recently saw this on Lisa @ Way Too Fantasy, and it seemed like a fun, quick little callout for myself! Are there any books […]

TTT: Characters I’d Name a Pet After

Well, I’ve already got two bookish cats, so I’m definitely going to cheat on two of these, but I’ve thought of so many different characters for my future cats, so this is also going to be a ton of fun. This week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic is definitely something I think about a lot, […]

TTT: Characters I’m Still Screaming about

While reading Return of the Thief recently, I unintentionally tweeted a list of characters that I’m still screaming about because I was currently screaming about Eugenides (yes, he’s on this list), and then realized that I haven’t screamed about any of those characters recently, so here we are! I’ve listed them in alphabetical order by […]
