It’s a new year which means it’s time to make a plan for my 2016 reading goals. I am not a huge stickler when it comes to my reading. I tend to go where my mood takes me. However, I do like to set some goals for myself just to give myself an idea of what I’d like to get accomplished during the year… Read more >>
Hello and welcome to Stacked, a weekly (usually) post where I discuss what books I’ve recently bought, borrowed or received. Happy 2016! Is everyone having as hard a time as I am adjusting to being back at work? Even though I had a fair amount of time off, I feel like I need a vacation from vacation. I am hoping to do a 2016 goal post at some point this month, but we’ll see how far I get with that. :) Well here are a few books that made their way to me recently. In Bed with the Duke by Christina… Read more »
There’s really no way to sum up this epic tome that is the grand finale of The Lunar Chronicles, but I’ll do my best. Fans of TLC will not be disappointed with this one. Yes, it’s over 800 pages long but no words are wasted. Everything that happens in the book happens for a reason and leads up to the breathless conclusion. Meyer really takes her time with this book and crafts a deft narratives that weaves together many different characters and storylines…Read more »
Organizing. Organizing always seems to be my umbrella goal whether it’s my schedule, my books, my room, my kitchen or my life. I just want to be organized! In 2015 I really stepped up my organization game and decided to get a good old fashioned, put pen to paper, write everything down planner. Not only has it been a huge help in organizing my weekly schedule, I forgot how much I love to have an old fashioned planner! For some reason, putting an “event” or a “to-do list” in my phone just feels too tentative but if I actually write… Read more »
Happy holidays from all of us at Nite Lite HQ. It’s been a wonderful year of books, movies, and bookish events and we are so happy we’ve been able to share it with you all. It will probably be quiet around here for a bit as we all take a break and wind down at the end of the year. This means more reading time though, which I am really looking forward to. Here’s a little run down of what I will be doing during the holiday break. Reading: Currently reading Clean Sweep and Sweep in Peace, two self-published Ilona… Read more »
Hello and welcome to Stacked, a weekly (usually) post where I discuss what books I’ve recently bought, borrowed or received. This week’s books are all ebooks that I either purchased or got from the Overdrive via my local library. I haven’t had a lot of time to read lately but I am hoping to get some time in this weekend and over the upcoming holidays.
The holiday season is upon us and today I have a fun gift guide for you. These items would be great for the bookish person in your life or give the list to someone who doesn’t know what to get you. And I promise I won’t tell if you decide to get little something for yourself. ;)
I love a well written long-ass book; something I can really sink my teeth into, connect with all the characters and just fall in love with! Now what do I consider a long-ass book? Any book that is over 500 pages. As of now, 2016 doesn’t look as crazy as 2015 partly because my wedding is over and all of my big wedding things (engagement part, bridal shower and bachelorette party) all took place in 2015. Now I have all this time to read! So let me tell you about the ten long-ass books that I want to read next year!
As most of you who read this blog are aware, I am absolutely obsessed with Outlander! I love the books, I’ve watched season 1 about seventeen times now, I listen to Outlander related podcasts, I watch interviews, I keep up with new casting; I am in, the whole nine yards, I love it all! Guys, Starz has finally released a teaser trailer for season 2 and it has me like: I am smiling from ear to ear because it’s so good to see Claire and Jamie on the screen again!! So if you haven’t seen the new trailer yet, here… Read more »
Base Instincts is a novella set in Ione’s Demonica series. If you haven’t read the series yet, there aren’t any huge spoilers in this one, though I would highly recommend going back and starting at the beginning of the series because it’s awesome. Base Instincts focuses on Raze, a medic at Underworld General, a hospital that caters to all demons, good or bad, in a fair manner. Raze is a Seminus demon (yes, you read that right) and his species must have sex in order to survive. Unfortunately biology has also mandated that Seminus demons must have sex with the opposite sex or face debilitating pain or death. This is bad news for Raze because he isn’t attracted to females. Raze has resigned himself to a life without love and of having sex with a female he doesn’t like very much in order to just survive. Then he meets Slake, a male who stirs in him feelings he isn’t prepared for and makes him long for impossible things. Read more »
