Judas Priest, I have not felt like blogging lately. I sat down to do this last night and promptly decided, fuck that. My reading has been slow and I’ve had a damn hard time finding the supplies for my new hobby I’m trying to take up and it’s all making me incredibly grouchy.
Anywho, enough grouchin’. Onto this fun tag that Ignited Moth shared.
3 READ ONCE & LOVED AUTHORS:
Patricia Briggs. This lady writes one of my favorite urban fantasies. The Mercy Thompson series. She also has a few other epic fantasy novels that I’m slowly working on. When I started the Mercy series, I read everything that had been released back to back, which something I never do with series.
R.S. Belcher. I feel like this author is not very well known and he so very deserves to be. When I read The Six-Gun Tarot – Book Review, it knocked me on my ass.
Debut author Sarah Gailey really struck a chord with me when I read American Hippo. I just cannot wait to see what she comes up with next. (Although, I so very hope it is in the American Hippo world!)
3 TITLES I’VE WATCHED BUT HAVEN’T READ:
3 CHARACTERS YOU LOVE:
Prince Jorg Ancrath from the Broken Empire trilogy by Mark Lawrence. He’s the extreme anti-hero. The very best anti-hero I’ve read thus far.
Maude Stapleton from the Golgotha series by R.S. Belcher. She belongs to a secret order of female bad asses.
Darrow from the Red Rising series. He’s such a conflicted character. He makes a lot of mistakes but he learns from them. Great character growth.
3 BINGED SERIES:
I don’t binge read series often, there is usually something in between every book but these three series are probably the closest I’ve come.
3 UNPOPULAR BOOKISH OPINIONS
- I’m going to steal Ignited Moth’s answer here. I’ve never understood people’s problems with prologues. To me, it’s just another chapter, on with the story!
- Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. I understand the reasoning, I really do. I’ve read some great books with horrible cover art BUT I still judged it hard before I read it.
- Erotica sucks.
3 CURRENT FAVORITE BOOKS COVERS:
3 GOALS FOR THE YEAR
Ooof, that took a turn to un-book related territory.
One, save enough money for our vacation in December to really enjoy ourselves and not have to worry about the bank account.
Two, get my hands on some pallets so I can start this damn woodworking project I’ve been dying to get into.
Three, start planning my goals for next year. It’s right around the corner!
Okay kids, this is where you tag yourself to have a little fun and spread the tag love.
