Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs

Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs

October 11, 2017 2017, Can't Wait Wednesday 13

I used to take part in Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. I’ve decided to begin participating again, but with Can’t-Wait Wednesday hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings since the Breaking the Spine blog is no longer active. Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that aren’t released yet. I love finding out about books which will publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog…. Read more »

Favorite urban fantasies since 2015

September 26, 2017 2017, Tell Me Something Tuesday 8

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post on Rainy Day Ramblings where a wide range of topics from books to blogging are discussed. This week we’re talking about our Favorite Urban Fantasies. I don’t read as many urban fantasies as I did a few years ago, but I still have a few I’m enjoying. Since I’ve written posts about urban fantasies in the past this time I’m talking about my favorites since 2015. One Good Dragon Deserves Another by Rachel Aaron Series: Heartstrikers #2 This is a self-published series and shows that an author can self-publish quality books and I hope make some money doing it. Such a fun series! I… Read more »

July 29, 2014 2014, Top Ten Tuesday 9

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme which I take part in occasionally. It’s a great meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish blog. Every week a new topic is presented. It’s not only fun to think about my list, but to read what other people come up with! This week we write about the ten authors I own the most books from. I have broken the authors down by e-books, audio books and paper books. When I look at my list several things occur to me: Of course, one of the reasons I have so many books by certain authors is that they’ve written a lot of books…. Read more »

My favorite books so far this year…

June 10, 2014 2014, Top Ten Tuesday 15

I haven’t participated in a Top Ten Tuesday meme for quite a while. Several weeks I’ve meant to, but things have always come up! Anyway, this topic–Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far This Year–is one I’ve been thinking about because I’ve read a lot of good books already! The Broke and the Bookish blog hosts Top Ten Tuesday. In no particular order… Caszandra by Andrea K. Host (science fiction/fantasy, Grade: A)–this was the first book I read this year and is the last book in the Touchstone series. I like this series very much. Pivot Point by Kasie West (young adult fantasy, Grade: B+)–this isn’t a perfect book (what is?!!),… Read more »

March books on my radar…

March books on my radar…

March 1, 2014 2014, Books on my radar 3

Each month I write about the books I’ve noticed and think might be good. Sometimes they’re from favorite authors and other times I get excited by some new author I might try. I don’t buy all the books (not during the month they’re released at least)–since I already have way too many books to read and sometimes these new books have high prices 🙁 But the list I make each month helps me not forget books. The Goodreads links help me keep track of these books and I hope people reading my post may find some new books, too! February 25 I didn’t love the first book in this series,… Read more »

This is a meme hosted by the herding cats & burning soup blog. Just pick a quote and the book it came from. Then add your link at the above blog. The quote this week is from Fair Game by Patricia Briggs. I am reviewing this book and Frost Burned both by Patricia Briggs later in the week. The main characters in this series are Anna and Charles who are both werewolves and are mated. Charles has been hiding his emotions from Anna, because he fears she will turn against him if she finds out what he truly is. Then why are you hiding your ghosts from her? Brother Wolf… Read more »

This is a meme hosted by Anna at the herding cats & burning soup blog. Every Monday Anna will share a quote that grabbed her for one reason or another. It’s a great way for us to show a little more about our favorite books. She invites everyone to join in–authors, bloggers, readers. The more the merrier! And if you can’t post on Mondays that’s fine you’re welcome to post whatever day works for you. Just leave your link on her blog! Pick a quote and the book it came from. …………… My quote today comes from Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs. This is book 7 in the Mercy Thomspon… Read more »

The Books I Recommend to Friends

The Books I Recommend to Friends

March 26, 2013 2013, Top Ten Tuesday 0

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme sponsored each week by The Broke and the Bookish. This week I’m listing the ten books I recommend the most. I’ve sorted them by genre. I had difficulty keeping this to just ten books! I love so many different books and authors and want to share the love! In a series with an ongoing story arc in which we slowly find out more about the characters as they grow and change I usually recommend the first book and that they be read in order. Other books in a series are more standalone and it doesn’t matter as much the order they are read. Urban… Read more »
