I am on a quest to finish 10 completed series this year. You see, it feels as if I am constantly reading book 1’s and I hardly ever finish a series. Especially now that I am blogging, reading and reviewing arcs, and new books are constantly being paraded in front of me. This is not […]
“Gamers don’t read.” I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve heard this stereotype, but as a person who hangs out at the intersection of video games and books (especially on my TikTok channel), I can tell you that’s the furthest thing from the truth. Gamers and readers have a ridiculous amount in common—so […]
During TBRCon, there was some chatter about books that need a bigger audience and I took it to heart. When I first began blogging, yeah, I’ll admit it: I was only reading the big names so I could join the conversation and be one of the cool kids. Over the past several years, I myself […]
I had been thinking the other day, I know dangerous for me, and I decided that I was done having all of these series that I start book 1 and then take forever to get to the rest of the series. In light of this, I’ve decided to challenge myself in 2022. My goal for […]
Here’s my favorite reads of 2021. Not all were published in 2021, but they were the ones I enjoyed most.
Bender’s Top LitRPG/GameLit/Progression/Cultivation Reads
I actually read more growing up than I do as an adult now. I was consumed by books in general as a child and would read whatever I could get my hands on, it didn’t really matter what genre. I have so many amazing memories of the books I read as a kid, but these […]
As a fan of science fiction, speculative, strange fantasy, and humorous stories I’m constantly on the lookout for those books on the fringes and ones that might make you scratch your head a bit. Here are a few that I’m excited to read this year: Battle of the Linguist Mages by Scotto MoorePublisher: TordotcomPublication Date: […]
2021 is now a number of weeks in the rearview mirror, and frankly, good riddance to it. In a year that gave the dumpster fire of 2020 a run for its money, it was pretty crap for everyone all round. However, one thing that wasn’t crap, and something we can rely on no matter when, […]
It has become a bit of a tradition for me to post a list of five of the books I am looking forward to in the coming year (though, in this case, as I am a little late getting it written – it is actually books for this year). The list of phenomenal books being released in 2022 is endless, so choosing five is so hard. But, here it goes: Five Reads for 2022 (BE WARE: some synopsis may contain spoilers for previous books).
Urban Fantasy is quite a popular sub-genre and pretty much self-explanatory. The genre instantly reminds you of books with wizards and witches (or wizardess?) with an attitude bashing up evil and saving good ol’ Earth! However once you move away from that well trodden path and looking for something fresh, here’s a list to get you started.
With so many great Indie authors writing books, I wanted to give them their own post to highlight all the good work being done. I think I read more Indie books than ever last year, and here are my favorites.
