An update!

Wow, I can’t believe I haven’t had a thing to say since September. But a lot has been going on, so I thought I’d take a moment to let everyone know about the latest news.

The biggest news has to do with two anthologies: We Shall Be Monsters by Renaissance Press and Dread Naught but Time, the second Scribes Divided Anthology. The former should be out either this month or December – I am actually just looking at the final proofs right now. And the latter finally has a release date set: mark your calendars for November 27th!

The other main thing of note is that I’ve been participating in NaNoWriMo this year. However, I’ve found that for me, the 50K goal doesn’t really work, so I am rebelling and just trying to get a first draft of a romance novella as close to finished as possible. Things have been going quite well with it and I look forward to telling you more about that soon.

That’s all for now but I hope to get back into the blogging spirit soon 🙂

Justice League Book Tag; #BookishBloggersUnite

#BookishBloggersUnite is a weekly hashtag that a group of bookish friends participate in to talk about books. This week’s host is Katy! Check out her blog for links. This week, we’re doing the Justice League Book Tag that was created by Angelica and Rosie, the Book Cover Girls. Here are the rules, though since we’re going this as a group, I am personally ignoring the ones about tagging:
  • Copy these rules onto your post
  • Mention creators of the tag: Angelica and Rosie @TheBookCoverGirls and link to the original post
  • Mention and thank the person who tagged you and link to their post
  • Answer all the questions
  • Since there were originally seven members in the Justice League, tag 7 people
  • Also, you can use the images provided, but don’t have to if you don’t want to
  • Have fun with it!

My Top Five … Book Adaptations; #BookishBloggersUnite

#BookishBloggersUnite is a weekly hashtag that a group of bookish friends participate in to talk about books. This week’s host is … me! Check below for links to the other blog posts once they are available.

“The book is better.”

We’ve all heard this. Many of us have said it, myself included. And that’s because most of the time, it’s true. Adaptation really is an art form in and of itself and so frequently, it just doesn’t live up to the original.

But today, in case the title didn’t give it away, we’re not talking about those adaptations. This post is about five adaptations that I think not only live up to the original book but sometimes actually surpass it. They are rare things and deserve to be celebrated, particularly right now when (spoilers) one of them is currently the top movie at the North American box office.

My Top Five … Romance Novels

Starting a new series of posts about my top five favourite [insert topic here]. I’m starting things off with a (literal) bang and talking about romance novels.

I started reading romance when I was in high school. However, it’s only in the last couple of years when I’ve really felt like a romance reader. During those years, I’ve discovered just how wonderful the genre is and how important it can be to have books written (primarily though certainly not exclusively) by women, for women.

So these are my top five favourite romance novels. There are a lot more books out there that I really enjoy but these ones have a special place in my heart.

WARNING: mild spoilers about the books, though I’ve tried to keep things as vague as possible.
