From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire--and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and ... Read More

2015 Reading Goals

booksaremylife

Do you set reading goals? I usually set a reading goal through Goodreads with the amount of books/bookish items that I want to read for the year. I say books/bookish items because I want to log everything that I’ve read, whether it’s just a deleted or extra scene, short story, novella, or book. If it’s on Goodreads, & I’ve read it, then it gets marked as such. My memory is horrible, & this helps me keep track! Anyway, this year I ... Read More

The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay + Giveaway

16151178

From Goodreads: I live in a world without magic or miracles. A place where there are no clairvoyants or shapeshifters, no angels or superhuman boys to save you. A place where people die and music disintegrates and things suck. I am pressed so hard against the earth by the weight of reality that some days I wonder how I am still able to lift my feet to walk. For the rest of the blurb, click here.     Review: This. Book. This ... Read More

Reading or Listening?

I read a LOT of books, but I’ve never been big on listening to them. I know a lot of people, friends, bloggers, etc that prefer audio books, and I think it’s a great idea. I’ve just always been more of a reader than a listener. I want to change that a little this year. One of my reading goals this year is to listen to a few books. I’m not specifying an amount, I just want to give it a try. I’ve never really given audio books a try, except for ... Read More

A few months ago, I posted about my favorite books  that I’ve read so far in 2014. I thought I’d end the year with a post about the rest of my favorite books. These aren’t necessarily books that came out in 2014, but ones that I read in 2014. Fangirl and also Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell!! I absolutely adored these books & they were the first books I’ve read by this author. Can’t wait to read more of her books! I liked ... Read More

What’s On Your Book Wish List?

17378508

Carmel over at Rabid Reads  had a great Weekly Question this week, and I thought I would ask one similar. For those that celebrate Christmas, what’s on your book wish list this season? For those that don’t celebrate, if you were going to buy or receive books anytime soon, what would be on your wish list? I love getting books as gifts, but unless I give specifics, it’s hard for my husband to get me book gifts. So, he’ll either give me a ... Read More

Do You Read Holiday Books?

legal-holiday-books

  For most of us, it’s time for the holidays. Yay!! Does this time of the year put you in the mood for holiday books? I love holiday movies (have to watch Christmas Vacation at least once before Christmas!!) and some holiday music helps me get in the spirit. But, I’m not big on reading holiday books. It’s not that I don’t like them or don’t read them at all. I will read some occasionally. It’s not a must though. If one of my favorite ... Read More
