50-Day Bookish Challenge – Day 43

Free rant, go ahead, we all know you want to.

But I don’t! Not really. I don’t rant all that much, to be honest. Life’s been so busy recently that I can’t even think about something to rant about anyway. With my new job, school, being the Maid of Honor in one of my best friend’s wedding (which is coming up fast!), and making plans to move out in the spring, life’s keeping me on my toes. In a good way though! So I’m going to pass on the ranting and just take a moment to catch my breath.


50-Day Bookish Challenge – Day 41 & 42

Whoops again. It’s always during the weekends that I can’t seem able to get on to post. But I had a fun (super busy) weekend and I am utterly exhausted. I wish I didn’t have to get homework done…which I should be doing now instead of typing this…^^;

Do you put a book under your pillow at night??

No. That just seems…unpleasant. And like it might give you a sore neck, depending on the book size. Sometimes I fall asleep reading, but my books never make their way under my pillow.

How do people read in the bath?? Please tell me, I’m scared of getting my book wet…

Very carefully, I imagine. It makes me nervous, but I have done it once or twice. However, that was a long time ago. I don’t even remember when the last time I took a bath was. Showers are my preferred method of bathing.

How do you feel when you find a typo/spelling error in a book??

Generally I don’t care all that much. Mistakes happen. However, if the whole book is riddled with errors left and right, I feel that’s an issue. I think, quite a few people had to read over this book before it was published. How could they not notice?!?! But I personally haven’t read a book like that.

50-Day Bookish Challenge – Day 39

What book has made you cry??

Hmm, sometimes I get a little teary-eyed at certain points in books (I usually get more emotional during TV shows and movies), but I think the last book that actually made me legit bawl was Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. If you’ve read it you probably know what part I’m talking about.

WWW Wednesdays #61 – October 25th

WWW Wednesdays

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly bookish meme formally hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm, and revived by Sam of Taking on a World of Words. This meme consists of answering the following three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

What am I currently reading?


I am currently reading Flight of Magpies, the third and final book in the A Charm of Magpies series by K.J. Charles. According to Goodreads, I’ve technically been reading this one for awhile. I started it, but then other things caught my interest so I haven’t picked it back up in a few weeks. I’m loaning the ebook from the library and I keep having to renew it. I’m hoping to get back in the mood for this one soon so I can complete the series. I really enjoyed the first two books, so I don’t know why this one’s taking me forever. Although, I feel like I have that problem a lot with the final books in the series. Speaking of which, I’m also reading the thirteenth and final book in The Hollows series by Kim Harrison, The Witch With No Name. As I mentioned yesterday in my TT post, I started this book back in April and, once again, other things caught my interest so I put it down. Recently I’ve been in the mood again, so I’m hoping to actually complete it this time. My mind must really not like it when series are about to come to an end…^^;

What did I recently finish reading?

I finished up Dirty Martini by J.A. Konrath, the fourth book in the Jack Daniels series. I’m still really enjoying this suspenseful series and will steadily keep plugging away at it. I also read a few M/M books by A.J. Thomas, including Sex & Sourdough, a standalone novel, and A Casual Weekend Thing, the first in the Least Likely Partnership series.  Both were four star ratings for me, and I’ll eventually get around to reading the other two books in the LLP series. I read another M/M book as well, Up For The Challenge, a standalone novel by Riley Hart and Devon McCormack. I really enjoyed the 7946475characters in that one! It was a great read and I actually gave it a five star rating. And guess what? I read a few more M/M books. It seems I’ve been really digging this genre for the past year or so. I read the first book in the Bounty series  by Christine d’Abo, No Quarter. Another book with two great MC’s. Their banter is hysterical and the author’s world-building was great! Aren’t we supposed to be living in space by now too? I also read the second book, No Remedy. This one was centered around some of the characters introduced in the first book. It was a little different because it was a love triangle, but where no one was left out (if you know what I mean ;D). I don’t normally read menage stories, but again, I really enjoyed the first book so I gave this one a go. Not as good as the first, in my opinion, but still a great addition! It answers some of the questions that the reader has at the end of the first book as well, which was nice. I’m planning on reading the third book at some point.

What do I think I’ll read next?

14061957I keep saying I’m going to read the third and final book in the Grisha trilogy, Ruin and Rising, by Leigh Bardugo, but will I ever actually get around to it? WHO KNOWS? I ranted a bit in one of my Bookish Challenge posts about how I was trying to get the ebook for this one and there’s none actually available (as in my library doesn’t carry the ebook anymore, I guess?), so I’ll have to go check out the physical copy when I get some time. I have a feeling it might just sit on my nightstand for weeks like it did the first time. Once again, the end of a series is playing with my mind. I’m also planning on continuing the Jack Daniels series. And read more M/M.

What are you currently reading? Have you read any of the books above? Let me know in the comments!

Happy reading! :)

50-Day Bookish Challenge – Day 38

Favorite genre??

My favorite genre is most definitely fantasy. Always has been, probably always will be. I dabble in other genres as well, but usually the books I read have to have some fantasy elements to keep me interested. If I’m reading something that’s not fantasy it’s normally mystery or, more recently, M/M romance.

Teaser Tuesdays #61 – October 24th

Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of A Daily RhythmTo play along just follow the rules below!


  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page (I usually do a bit more than two…)
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

It’s been forever since I’ve done one of these posts. My 50-Day Bookish Challenge posts have mostly held my attention for the past few weeks. Some of you may remember that I had started reading the thirteenth and final book in The Hollows series by Kim Harrison, The Witch With No Name, back in…April. Damn, has it really been that long?!?! Anyway, I read a good chunk and then just kind of stopped. So now I’ve been in the mood to get back to it, however I’m starting over because…yeah, apparently it’s been awhile.

My teaser:


The coffee smell coming from the wax-coated cup was nauseatingly familiar, and I held it listlessly as I sat in the chair I’d pulled into the carpeted hallway. The oil-like sheen on the surface caught the fluorescent lights, showing the shake in my hand.

50-Day Bookish Challenge – Day 37

Is there a book that you think everyone should read??

Umm, how about all the books ever?! Just kidding. Who wants to read things they’re not interested in? No one. Hmm, I think everyone should read… I’m trying really hard not to put Harry Potter (because duh, everyone should read that). How about manga? I know that’s not a specific book, but everyone should try reading manga. There’s manga for everyone! Plus pictures. Who doesn’t love pictures? Go. Give manga a try. If you need a recommendation let me know. I will try to think of something you might like!

50-Day Bookish Challenge – Day 36

Favorite bookmark??


This is my favorite bookmark! Ain’t it cute? The little bone is magnetically held in place, however I rarely ever undo it. I just slip the whole thing over the side so that the dog sits on the cover. I also had a small magnetic one with a wolf on it that I loved, but sadly I think I left it in a library book…^^; So this has been the new favorite for a while now.
