Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge: Books That Need a Sequel

Hosted by Long and Short Reviews. I struggled with this week’s prompt because I’ve seen so many examples of genuinely great story ideas that were stretched out into more books than their premise actually required in my opinion. If they’d stopped after the first or third or fifth book they would have been much better.… Read More

Top Ten Tuesday: Ghost Stories

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl My favourite genre is science fiction and fantasy. Since that’s an impossibly broad answer to this week’s prompt, Books From My Favorite Genre, I decided to narrow it down to something specific: ghost stories. I adore ghost stories, especially the ones that rely on psychological horror instead of jump… Read More

Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge: Lessons I Learned from a Book Character

Hosted by Long and Short Reviews. I’m not really sure what to write for the introduction to this post, so I’ll keep it short and simple. The lessons I’ve learned from book characters are in bold.

Spring and fall are when I cut back on shows and spend more time socializing with friends and visiting the great outdoors to soak… Read More

Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Became Great TV Shows

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl This week’s topic was a page to screen freebie. I’ve decided to narrow down my focus to five books that were made into wonderful TV shows. I’ve left off a couple of the titles that I always discuss on this blog (*cough* The Handmaid’s Tale) so I could focus… Read More

Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge: Books I Want Youth to Discover

Hosted by Long and Short Reviews. I’d never tell a kid that they must read a specific book. Just because a story was meaningful to me at a certain age doesn’t mean every child or teenager would want to read it then. People grow at different rates, and we obviously all have different interests as… Read More

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters That Remind Me of Myself

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl My answers this week will be a mixed bag of books, TV shows, and films. This topic was a little challenging for me, but I enjoyed brainstorming for it. Let’s see if I can come up with the full ten answers! 1. Karana from Scott Odell’s Island of the… Read More
