Book Tag :: The Lady Janies

Hi. (Small wave from the girl curled up in a hoodie and fuzzy socks right now, ’cause it’s fall in mid-Missouri, y’all!) I’m currently avoiding some edit work I need to be doing on a western short story. I’ve been working on it the last couple weeks and hoping I can share it tomorrow, therefore, using […]

Spine Study :: The Plastic Magician

I love a good spinoff; it’s like a roadtrip to your favorite place, only with different people in the vehicle. The Plastic Magician has been on my TBR list for awhile now. Looking back – I literally gobbled up Holmberg’s previously published Paper Magician series when they first came out. I adored Ceony and Emery’s […]

Top 5 Wednesday :: Worst Hangovers

I’m not joking one bit when I say: I would rather deal with a tequila hangover than a book hangover. What is it about fictional characters getting inside your head and just ripping your heart out that’s so…addictive? So much love. So much hate, my friends. Continuing on with this month’s freebie posts over at […]

Top 5 Wednesday :: Blue Books

Let me get something out in the open here: my favorite color is most definitely green. That being said – there really is something about a blue book that’s so…charming. Striking. Traditional. Commanding. I actually had no idea how many books I owned that are all decked out in blue until I decided on this […]
