October Blog Hop: If you could pick any author to go trick or treating with, who would you pick?

Bookish Blog Hop October 2018

I’m taking part in my first bookish blog hop! I’ve mostly ignored all the themed October and Halloween things because I’m the autumn-equivalent of the Grinch (let me know in the comments if you have a word for that). But this blog hop has been so much fun and I wanted to host this question because I immediately knew my answer.

If you could pick any author to go trick or treating with, who would you pick?

There is only one author I’d want to go trick or treating with because I am absolutely sure that it would be a blast with her. [... read more]

Do you care about your favourite authors’ political views?

2018 Discussion Challenge: authors' political views

Let’s talk about authors’ political views!

Whispers in the background:
” Omg, I can’t believe she wants to talk about politics!”
“What? Politics? Is she insane?”
“Politics? This will end in a disaster!”

The Story

Like the busy little bookblogger I am, I was writing a review to a book I enjoyed. When it was done I headed over to Twitter to look up the author and see if I could tag her. You know, to spread the love. [... read more]

Tag: Three Bookish Things

Three Bookish Things Tag || Lovely Audiobooks bookblog
I love talking about books and I love doing things in threes! I was very happy to see that the amazing Saturday Night Reader tagged me for this one.

Three Read Once and Loved Authors

In chronological order:

  1. Terry Pratchett got me hooked on Fantasy.
  2. Penny Reid got me hooked on Romance.
  3. Debra Dunbar and her narratress Angela Rysk got me hooked on audiobooks.

Three Titles I’ve Watched But Haven’t Read

  1. To all the Boys I’ve loved before (so cute!)
  2. Shadowhunter: The Mortal Instrument (I was not a fan and didn’t finish the series)
  3. The Big Short (this one was sooo good!!)

Three Characters I Love

  1. Literally any woman in a contemporary romance narrated by Andi Arndt. She just has a magical voice.
  2. The Abcurses and Willa. All six of them are my book-girl- and boyfriends! Don’t judge.
  3. Sam Vimes from the Discworld. Because he’s the only character I can think of that would actually make me feel safe if I was trapped in a fantasy world.

Three Series Binged

  1. Curse of the Gods by Jaymin Eve and Jane Washington
  2. The Hellequin Chronicles by Steve McHugh
  3. The Hyde series by Lauren Stewart

Three Unpopular Bookish Opinions

    1. e-book > print book. I love and cherish my print collection but I’m so happy to have a huge library on my phone and with me at all times.
    2. I dnf’ed Seven Years by Dannika Dark because I couldn’t take the stereotyping.
    3. “First times” in romance novels are often awful to me. No foreplay, no preparation, just bam, balls-deep. To quote from Hothouse Flower:
      Ryke’s advice: “You should stay away from any guy who doesn’t make you come at least twice before he fucks you. Keep that in mind.”

    Three Current Favourite Book Covers

    Three Goals for the Year

    1. I want to read more Fantasy again. It sounded here like I read only Fantasy but I actually read Romance all the time.
    2. I want to read more real quality stuff that I’m hyped about, not binge so much on the first thing I find (that might as well be new self-published books, I didn’t mean classics).
    3. I want to grow my blog and write things that matter to someone. It’s a big goal for a small audiobook review blog. But I’ll just try harder!

    I tag

    1. Jackie from Bookworm Cafe
    2. Ashleigh from Turning the Pages with Lattes
    3. Cassie Lime from Little Time To Read Today

    If you aren’t tagged but would like to do it, by all means, go ahead! This is a lot of fun and a nice bookblogger tradition 🙂 [... read more]
