Friday Favorites Has a Brand New Feel

December 13 is Favorite New to Me Authors in 2019 Prepare, friends. Prepare to be bombarded with alien romance recs because that’s 98.5% of the favorite new authors I found in 2019. I can’t recommend Ruby Dixon again because technically I discovered her in 2018. Which is why I so-casually snuck her into the beginning of this post. JUST GO READ ICE PLANET BARBARIANS, you can thank me later. Amanda Milo Despite the dark, angsty, muscle covers Amanda Milo has…

The Great Blogging Wrap-Up of 2019

Alright, friends. Let’s get to some numbery maths for the year. I’m still at the point where I genuinely enjoy blogging (LET IT NEVER END) and I have a lot of fun breaking my year down in stats. Onward! Visitors in 2018: 2,320 Top 5 Posts from 2019: 15 Gorgeous Literary Tattoos (This is DIRECTLY caused by pinning this post to Pinterest. I stuck it up and then months later it just…took off? And was shared like crazy and ended…

Friday Favorites Has You Covered

December 6: Favorite Book Covers of 2019 Disclaimer: I haven’t even read these. Most of them are anticipated releases and part of a series. I’m a bookworm. I read books. BUT NOT THESE ONES, apparently? Even though I haven’t read them, I love the covers. Insert shrug emoji here, because life is just this funny place where kids across the country can buy the exact same book at their Scholastic book fair in 1999 and I can like books purely based…

Friday Favorites is a Little Magic

October 25 favorites is: Magic Wielders Did I use this post as yet another excuse to bust out the Shia Pornstache gif? YOU BET YOUR SWEET EDIBLE BRITCHES I DID. Here you go: On to the favorite magic wielders in my nerdy bookish heart. Fred & George Weasley, Harry Potter series, JK Rowling “Hey, look — Harry’s got a Weasley sweater, too!” Fred and George were wearing blue sweaters, one with a large yellow F on it, the other a…

Friday Favorites is a Clever Bastard

October 18 is: Favorite Villains Hello and welcome to my tangent! I’ve previously covered this topic in Top Ten Tuesday, Villain Edition and had a lot of fun with it. So today I’m going rogue again and picking my favorite clever villains. I want the best plotters, the most urbane, cultured, and ridiculously devious little psychopaths for the list today. I want the type who have plans A-D prepared, in their sleep, and could pick out a good bottle of wine (which are…

Friday Favorites Contains a Little Hate

October 4: Favorite Characters that Other People Hate This may be the trickiest prompt I’ve ever done? Kibby excels at coming up with the brain-teasing, controversial Friday Favorites. (See: that one time she wanted to throw the match and watch it burn) Obviously this will be a super subjective list and your mileage may vary, standard cautions, etc & etc. Except for Dolores Umbridge, who we can all agree is virulent toad slime wrapped in sickly pink cardigans, there isn’t really a…

Yea Verily, Friday Favorites is Verbose

September 27: Favorite Words *Content Warning!* I enjoy curse words, the more inventive the better. This is one of the reasons I follow Chuck Wendig’s blog religiously. No one can cuss with more aplomb and less apology. HOWEVER. I do realize overt bad wordery is not for everyone and so I’m including this content warning. Here be rude & vulgar words. If this cussing has offended, think but this, and all is mended; that you’ve only not to read, and to…

Friday Favorites Has Some Unfinished Business

September 13: Favorite Unfinished Series (either you haven’t read all the books or series that aren’t complete yet) This one will be kinda short. When a series is recommended to me, I try out the first few books. If I don’t fall in love it that’s where it stops, so those would be my unfinished series for today, but the problem here is that bookstagram almost never steers me wrong. And when I love the first few books in a series,…

Friday Favorites is at Your Side, to Kick You Into Shape

September 6th is: Favorite Side Characters The title is supposed to reference sidekicks, but I suspect it’s just going to annoy Google’s search parameters, so really I see no downside to this. Onward! Favorite Lord of the Rings Side Characters Samwise Gamgee: The ultimate, gold-standard, shall-not-be-topped loyal, devoted, fearless, practical, loving side character. Sam is just the best. Pippin & Merry: It takes some skills to be the comic relief to Gandalf Greybeard, Wizard of Sass, but I also love how deep the…
