Happee Birthdae Harry!

Happee Birthdae Harry!

Greetings Bookworms! You may or may not have noticed, but I’ve been in a VERY Harry Potter mood of late. I’ve been listening to the entire Harry Potter series on audio the past few weeks while chugging through some seriously busy times at my day job. (Yes, I have a real job. No, it has nothing to do with books.) Since I’ve been chilling in the HP universe, I remembered… Read more »

Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I’ve Read The Most

Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I’ve Read The Most

Happy Tuesday, Bookworms! It’s time again for another adventure in listing with the ladies of The Broke and the Bookish. This week they have asked us to list the authors who we’ve read the most. I’ve never been so thankful for Goodreads and the fact that it’s got a big fat chunk of my reading listed and searchable by author. You probably won’t be terribly surprised that authors who have… Read more »

My Very First Author Event: Jo Baker

My Very First Author Event: Jo Baker

Happy Friday Bookworms! You’ll recall that last week I was raving about Longbourn by Jo Baker (review). It’s essentially Pride and Prejudice from the servants’ perspective, and it’s pretty great. A couple of months ago, I was hunting down digital books on my library’s website (as I am wont to do) and I saw that we were having an author event. With JO BAKER. In my town! I live in the middle… Read more »

Just Your Typical Prototype (Prototype by MD Waters)

Just Your Typical Prototype (Prototype by MD Waters)

Greetings, Bookworms! If you’re not singing No Doubt’s “Just a Girl” right now based on the title of this post, please, by all means, put it on as background music. Now that I’m done foisting 90s ear worms on you, we can get down to business. Earlier this year I read and really enjoyed Archetype by MD Waters. I was overjoyed when I was offered a complimentary copy of the sequel,… Read more »

Fictional Castaways: Top Ten Tuesday

Fictional Castaways: Top Ten Tuesday

Ahoy, Bookworms! It’s time for some Tuesday fun, and today I’m making a list with the ladies of The Broke and the Bookish. Today we’ve been tasked with listing the book characters we’d like to bring with us on a deserted island. I mean if you HAVE to be stranded somewhere, you might as well make it interesting, right? 1. Hermione Granger from Harry Potter : Ain’t no such thing as… Read more »

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Zdravsvtvuyte Bookworms! That was a Russian greeting, because I’m all about setting the scene, and I recently finished reading Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. I’m not hugely into YA fiction, but I read an article on Book Riot last year and the series landed on my radar. Kit Steckliener wrote the piece, and I typically trust her opinion. I figured if anyone was going to steer me toward YA that I’d enjoy,… Read more »

Howdy Bookworms! Today I’m FAMOUS. Annabel Smith (half of the duo behind the glorious Six Degrees of Separation meme) has interviewed me on her blog! Here’s the link. Leave a comment while you’re there so Annabel doesn’t think I’m a total fraud, okay? Thank you my little worms!

Beyond Books: Top Ten Tuesday

Beyond Books: Top Ten Tuesday

Aloha, Bookworms! It’s Tuesday again (where does the time go?!) The ladies of The Broke and the Bookish have offered up another fun topic for this week’s listy goodness. It may be hard to believe, but we book bloggers occasionally do things other than read. Today we’re talking about our favorite movies and TV shows, though I’m going to try and keep things bookish because I like a challenge. Shall… Read more »
