A Dark and Hollow Star is, to describe it in one word, chaotic. There’s a lot going on with its worldbuilding: Fae courts, gods from various pantheons, figures from religious and cultural myth… Immortals, mortals, and everyone in between… Unseelie and seelie, lesidhe and sidhe… All of these elements lay the groundwork for an interesting premise that suffers from pacing issues.
It’s February 3rd and I still haven’t written a year-end post… Not the blog energy I wanted to bring into the new year. I’m working hard to catch up on backposts while also taking on some exciting new projects.
A brief wrap-up for December! I read 6 books in December, for a final total of 70 books in 2020 – numerically, my second best year since I started keeping track in 2006!
Happy Tuesday – and happy new year! This week’s prompt is most anticipated releases for the first half of 2021. I’m excited about these books, but there’s no guarantee I’ll get around to any of them in a timely fashion (considering that some of these are the third in a series where the second book is still a TBR… #bookishproblems).
What does 2021 have in store? In general, more of the same: continue to read regularly, post regularly, grow my bookstagram, and put more effort into reviews… whether it’s a short review on instagram stories or a full-length blog review. With that in mind, here are more specific goals…
TBR lists are hit-or-miss for me: the long-form style of having a list of prompts while still having the flexibility to read by mood works well, but I don’t do well with a short-term schedule unless there’s a strict deadline. So take this week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt – books on my Winter 2020-2021 TBR – with a grain of salt.
Happy Tuesday! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is books I want to read again. There aren’t many books that I make a point to reread on the regular, but I do occasionally reread favourites or books that left a lasting impression.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday falls on my birthday, so please enjoy this self-indulgent list of books from my TBR that focus on supernatural creatures, societies, and/or powers for this week’s Halloween Freebie prompt! Some of these are straight horror while others are romance or slice of life. There are witches, werewolves, ghosts, eldritch gods, …
I’m not feeling this week’s TTT prompt, so instead here’s the first of several posts about the ongoing process of downsizing my physical book collection.
My last Top Ten Tuesday post was a list of books with single-word titles – so it’s only fitting that our first post-hiatus TTT topic is super long book titles!
