Fledgling by Octavia Butler

Fledgling by Octavia Butler

Greetings Bookworms! I know I whine from time to time about how often I get bitten by mosquitoes because it is very unpleasant to be itchy. It’s not just mosquitoes, though. I’m really, really delicious to all blood-sucking insects (they ALL make me itch, the jerks.) This has led to my hard and fast belief that vampires cannot possibly exist because I would have perished long, long ago. Until, that… Read more »

Vampires and Witches and Daemons, Oh My! (The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness)

Vampires and Witches and Daemons, Oh My! (The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness)

Good Morrow, Bookworms! Stop me if you’ve heard this one: A witch, a daemon, and a vampire walk into a bar… Oh wait, you know that one? That’s kind of what I thought too, when I started reading the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. I decided to review the series as a whole, because I totally binge listened to them and this way I can limit spoilers with carefully placed… Read more »

Words for Worms Rewind: Campy Vamps!

Words for Worms Rewind: Campy Vamps!

Greetings Bookworms! I mentioned last week that I was going to be resurrecting some of my old posts that had been eaten by internet gremlins, right? Who’s up for another one? I’m imagining thousands of hands in the air even though I am acutely aware that I do not *have* thousands of readers. A girl can dream, right? In this early post, I talked about my fixation on vampire novels…. Read more »

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

I Vant To Suck Your Blooooood, Bookworms! I’m LYING. I do NOT want to do that. There are just so few vampire jokes out there, you know? Ah well. In case you hadn’t guessed it, today we’re talking vampires. Because why not? I’ve heard a lot about Holly Black and when I heard that The Coldest Girl in Coldtown was on sale for super cheap (thanks for the head’s up,… Read more »

Happy Halloween, grim grinning Bookworms! I am super stoked today!

Trick Or Treat! (Top Ten Tuesday)

Hello BOOkworms! It’s Tuesday my little darlings, and you know what that means! We’re going to do some listing! The crew at The Broke and the Bookish have challenged the blogosphere to list books that get them in the Halloween Spirit. It’s been WELL established that I’m a weenie when it comes to scary books, but as it happens, I’ve managed to collect a handful of titles over the years…. Read more »

I Vant to Suck Your Blooood! (Dracula by Bram Stoker)

I Vant to Suck Your Blooood! (Dracula by Bram Stoker)

Greetings, Bookworms! That’s right kids. In honor of my Halloweenie reading binge I finally got around to Dracula by Bram Stoker. I’ve had this book waiting around on my Kindle since I got a Kindle… 3 years ago. It was the very first book I downloaded, and it’s just been sitting there gathering digital dust while I read a zillion other things. I am proud to say that I conquered the grand-daddy… Read more »

Awww, Sookie Sookie Now: Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris

Awww, Sookie Sookie Now: Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris

Hello to my Bloodsucking Bookworms! Oh, that’s right. The REAL vampires are still “in the coffin.” I get it, I get it. I don’t blame you for keeping it to yourselves. Actually, I may have mentioned it before, but my very existence is proof to me that vampires are not real. I am DELECTABLE to all blood sucking insects. Every mosquito within miles comes to feast on my sweet sweet… Read more »
