Ten Books in London

Reading a lot of fantasy is great for exploring other worlds but not so much when picking a singular setting (or even type of setting). But as I’ve read 2 books this summer set in London, I set my eyes on that and found…well, I really haven’t read as many books set in the city as I thought.   Granted, […]

#FF & Audiobooks: Don’t Read to Me

Do you listen to audiobooks? If not, why? I shortened the prompt for this week’s Feature/Follow a bit because I don’t listen to audiobooks. It really comes down to one thing: I don’t like being read to. Sure, that may have been a different case when I was little but ever since I could read a book for myself, I […]

Ten Books I Want To Re-Read

This week’s Top Ten is a rewind to a past topic. Thankfully they have a list of some of the ones from years past so I picked a 2014 topic (before I got into the weekly meme). I’m an avid re-reader, especially of series with installments yet to be released. Totally one of those people who re-reads THE ENTIRE SERIES […]

Ten Books I Would Buy If I Won the Lottery

If only this actually happened. I’d probably end up buying out half of our local Barnes & Noble (to be fair, it’s pretty small). I’m also a firm supporter of owning multiple editions of books just because they’re favorites. Or the covers are pretty, totally shallow I know. Check out the list below of all the things I definitely need […]

#FF & Thoughts on DNF Reviews

What is your take on DNF books. Do you review them? Choose not to review them?   Sometimes I like a book. Sometimes it’s just not for me. via GIPHY I have a personal policy when it comes to reading. Each book gets 50 pages (less if it’s under 200 pages total). I don’t know where the number 50 came […]

Ten Things I Want to Learn/Do After Reading Books

This week I’m talking about all those things I wanted to do or learn after reading a book. Since I read a LOT of fantasy, you’re probably going to see a theme here and they’re all going to be totally outlandish. It’s really a shame that our world doesn’t offer many of the things I’ve mentioned below. Perhaps they could […]

Ten Books Set Outside of the United States

I really had to think about this one. Considering how much fantasy I read, this should’ve been pretty easy since a lot of those books aren’t even set on this earth (that counts, right?) but I tried to pick titles that are alternate worlds to our own set around the world. Some of these are a stretch, with only part […]
