Ten Books I Plan to Read in 2017

My last post like this was all the way back in 2015, and it’s funny because I still haven’t read most of those books. But this year will be different, I say, for the fourth year in a row. 1) The Winds of Winter, by George R. R. Martin. That’s right, I’m calling it. This […]

Nothing Like an Award to Keep Your Spirits Up…

So throughout the past couple months, I’ve received a bunch of awards. This isn’t surprising, (I mean, have you met me?) but I’m flattered nonetheless. Most of these awards were season-based, so I decided to go with the one nomination that doesn’t belong to a specific time of the year: the Sunshine Blogger Award. I […]

Game of Thrones: Season 5: To Watch or Not to Watch?

I am a hardcore fan of A Song of Ice and Fire, which may surprise some of you, considering how I never talk about it. Ever. Like, not even a little bit. So like many people across the globe, I am struggling with a bit of a dilemma. A conundrum, if you will.  Thanks to George […]

A Slightly Belated Valentine’s Day Post

I’m back, bitches! Sorry for the profanity. I just felt like adding “bitches” to the sentence would add more punch to it, so to speak. Anywho, I was recently nominated for two valentine’s day-themed awards, and while admittedly it’s no longer Valentine’s day, it’s still never too late to talk about the romance. (Ladies?) So thank you, […]

In Which I Can’t Think of a Proper Title for this Post (TCWT)

Huzzah! January’s TCWT Blog Chain is here, and this month’s prompt is: “What is something you feel is generally written well in fiction? What is something you feel is generally written poorly?” Well, if I had to pick one thing that bugs me, it’s the young adult genre’s tendency to romanticize or overlook creepy behavior. […]

Why Splitting Mockingjay was for the Best

(Caution: spoilers galore for the events of Mockingjay, by Suzanne Collins) So I just recently watched Mockingjay: Part One, and I’ve come to two conclusions: 1) I don’t usually condone murder, but someone needs to kill that guy behind me who kept clapping every ten minutes. Yes, Katniss shooting down a plane with a bow […]

Guest Post: The Worst Types of Book Endings

Ha, didn’t guess that, did you? I’m referring to anyone who tried to guess what this post would be about. I guess this is sort of cheating, since I didn’t actually write this post, but I’m sure you’ll understand, because the fantastic Nirvana has won that whole guest post award contest. Better luck next time, […]

Characters Who Deserve Their Own Books

So, I discovered this prompt from Engie, who found it on The Broke and the Bookish, which appears to be a pretty great blog. So I’m going to try out the tag, for what I’m pretty sure is the first time. You can join the tag too, right here. Now, to get straight to it: Hot […]

I Guess You Could Say This Has Been a Success

Today the young adult blog party comes to an end. I’m sure they’ll be a late post or two, which I’ll be happy to include in the list of links on this post. My expectations were surpassed, I must say, and I’m glad that I don’t have to look back at this post in shame […]

My Super Awesome Time Travel Novella: Chapter 1

This post was both inspired by both Liam’s Phil Phorce and Jeyna Grace’s Fan Fiction Novel, both of which are amazing. So I decided to write something similar to my blog much like what they’re doing except the plot is completely different (At least so far. I’m only just starting episode 2 of Phil Phorce […]
