Friday Favorites Takes Me Away

April 19 Favorites: Fictional Worlds For this week's post I wanted to mix it up a little. So I'm making a half-and-half list. Five bookish worlds I would move to tomorrow sign me up, I'm bringing the family, see you later reality! Then five bookish worlds where I'd last long enough for one good Hollywood scream, and yet, I [...]

Magic and Mayhem and Friday Favorites

April 12 Favorites is: Magic Systems Wands & Wandlore, Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling I'll go ahead and lead off with my very favorite magic system, which is wands. Current diversity criticism aside, we can't deny that JK Rowling can worldbuild with the BEST of them. Her lore about wands is one of the better [...]

Friday Favorites is a Smooth Criminal

April 5 Favorite is Fictional Criminals My friends: My family: Strangers on the street: SE *gets a bullhorn* *climbs up on box*: TAMORA PIERCE IS THE BEST YA FANTASY AUTHOR EVER.

Friday Favorites Gets Twisted

Friday Favorites is a blog hop hosted and created by the wonderful somethingofthebook.com March 29 My Favorite Plot Twists I love a good twisty moment in a book but I don't go out actively seeking them.

Friday Favorites Tunes

March 15 Favorites is all about the albums or songs I love listening to while reading Music, in general, is one of my very favorite things so this week is pretty much fantastic. Buckle up, bookworms. Driver picks the music, shotgun shuts his cakehole, in the immortal words of Dean Winchester. *Sorry there's no album [...]

Friday Favorites Gives You a Show

March 8 Favorites: TV Shows to watch (when not reading). Bit of a puzzler this week. I . . . don't actually consume much media other than my books. I am a book junkie. The husband mainlines Netflix shows, but it's the way he GOES TO SLEEP, how can you possibly fall asleep with a show [...]

Friday Favorites has a Disapproving Look at my TBR

March 1: TBR Books (we all have those books on our TBR that we know will be favorites, but just sit on our TBR forever) Ah, the beautiful Mount TBR, smoking gently in the light of my bedside lamp, just waiting patiently to explode. Foothills made of giftcard purchases and one-click Kindle freebies. Small, winding paths [...]

Friday Favorites Will Set You Up on a Date*

* A virtual date, with a fictional character. I mean date in the metaphorical sense here. Sorry. Didn't want to get your hopes up to Match.com standards here. Look, I can barely people on the best days and setting other humans up with dates is WAY out of my skillset. I'm incredibly lucky to have [...]
