This week is all about our blogs. This is also a way for you to get to know a little about me as a blogger. I choose :
My Top Ten Favorite Posts
Calling all book addicts! This post is for you. If you have found yourself hoarding books or constantly buying books before you have finished the ones you have then stay tuned.
Everyone has their little quirks in life. Well I will let you in on one of mine. I love to read the author’s bio at the end of the book. I know it’s weird and I am sure most people don’t pay attention but you can find some fun loving ones in the mix, not just your standard accomplishments. In honor of my quirk I will be sharing my…
Those Awkward moments when you read something and think, ‘Wow, that was uncomfortable.’ You know that you have been there. Well I wanted to give those awkward moments the spotlight they deserve. I am sure if you have read the books or seen reviews of these books mentioned you might be familiar with these, but why not give them their own special post! Who doesn’t need a laugh now and again esp. with all the drama in the blogging world.
Why? What is the fascination?
This is something that has been debated time and again on Goodreads. I don’t know if this discussion always is stated this exact way, but most of the books with good girls dating bad boys tend to have some strong feeling swinging both ways. I can say that honestly I enjoy reading these stories, but that is all they are. I can enjoy them as an ulternate reality because let’s face it the bad boys are not the same in life as they are in books.
Fantasy : Girls love the idea of taming that wild, free spirit in a sexy man. Tattoos hell yeah! Tempting fate and playing with fire can bring on it’s own rush, but the truth is you will get burned.
Reality : You can’t change someone unless they want to change for themselves. The idea of ‘A Walk to Remember,’ is sweet but don’t count on it in real life.
I have a secret love of all sexy alpha male bad boys. Okay so it’s not such a secret if you are familar with the books that I have read.(GR page)
Once a week, usually Monday, I post a Book Slayer Challenge where you, my fellow readers, get to slay books along with me. I know it sounds exciting. Now what do you need to do? Well you need to get those stakes out and get ready to dive on into the book fray and match the quotes with the right books.
Are you ready for this week’s book series?
So last week we were over in the Urban Fantasy genrewith the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. Love that series. So many great moments to remember and re-read.
Well this week I headed over to the Paranormal Romance genre. Now I switched it up with the test because this series is so awesome and well loved I thought that I would just take the guess work out of it and come out and tell you. So this week you have the honor of slaying…
Love It or Hate It kind of book
I decided to put a series up for slaying that has been squealed about as much as torn apart. I thought it would be fun to see if those who loved it and those who hated this series could actually remember some of the quotes.
Therefore my quotes will be more of the popular ones. I think no matter what you thought of the book you will enjoy this one, at least I hope.
This week we are headed back to the YA Genre. Think Introverted Girl meetsSelf-Loathing Vampire with a side of Werewolf BFF. Yup I am sure you guessed it. We are going to be slaying the Twilight Series.
This review was hard for me. There were quite a few things that were similar toPoison Study by Maria V. Snyder.
You must know that Poison Study is one of my favorite books. I think if I had never read Poison Study, Throne of Glass would probably rate more stars, but the similarities were just too many.
* I went on and listed quotes from each book and the similarities.
* I have a weak spot for Highlander books.
To start off I just have to say that this book kept me on my feet and guessing. People die, relationships fail and some relationships build an unbreakable bond! Yet another great addition to the Highland Guards series!
