My Blog Name In Books

 

my-blogs-name-in-books

 

I saw this on Modern Witch’s Bookshelf and thought I would try it out.  My blog name so long!  This should be fun though.

 

Rules: 

1.  Spell out your blog’s name. (this is where you wish your blog’s name was shorter LOL)

2. Find a book from your TBR that begins with each letter. (Note you cannot ADD to your TBR to complete this challenge – the books must already be on your Goodread’s TBR)

3. Have fun!  

Anyone who wants to join in is welcome to use the graphic
as long as they link back to Fictionophile.

Review of LIFEL1K3 by Jay Kristoff (digital arc)

LIFEL1K3 by Jay Kristoff

 

On a floating junkyard beneath a radiation sky, a deadly secret lies buried in the scrap.

Eve isn’t looking for secrets—she’s too busy looking over her shoulder. The robot gladiator she’s just spent six months building has been reduced to a smoking wreck, and the only thing keeping her Grandpa from the grave was the fistful of credits she just lost to the bookies. To top it off, she’s discovered she can destroy electronics with the power of her mind, and the puritanical Brotherhood are building a coffin her size. If she’s ever had a worse day, Eve can’t remember it.

But when Eve discovers the ruins of an android boy named Ezekiel in the scrap pile she calls home, her entire world comes crashing down. With her best friend Lemon Fresh and her robotic conscience, Cricket, in tow, she and Ezekiel will trek across deserts of irradiated glass, infiltrate towering megacities and scour the graveyard of humanity’s greatest folly to save the ones Eve loves, and learn the dark secrets of her past.

Even if those secrets were better off staying buried.

Most Popular Books On My TBR

 

I saw this on Kristin Kraves Books and thought it would be fun to do.

 

All you have to do is you go to your Goodreads TBR shelf and sort your books by the number of ratings (“num ratings” in the dropdown bar at the bottom), and then show off which 10 books are the most widely read/rated on your TBR!

Popular (mostly YA) books I haven’t read yet.

 

I started reading YA again pretty late, so there are so many super popular books/series that I haven’t read yet.  Most are on my TBR and I even own quite a few of them.  I thought I would share them today.  I think a lot of them will shock you.

 

First I’ll start with some authors I haven’t read yet.

 

Sarah J. Maas

Cassandra Clare

JK Rowling

Victoria Aveyard

Maggie Stiefvater

Marissa Meyer

Laini Taylor

 

I know, I know.  I need to read all of them asap!

Down the TBR #26

 

Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by lost in a story that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when youre scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well thats going to change!

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go

 

As before, if there are no comments below the cover, I just don’t really remember adding the book to my list.   I will be doing 15 again this week.

Author Q&A with Sasha Dawn for Blink (plus my review and giveaway)

 

I’m super excited to have author Sasha Dawn on my blog today.  She was nice enough to reach out to me last year to read and review her new book, Blink.  I have a Q&A with Sasha and a giveaway.

Blink by Sasha Dawn

 

When Chatham begins to understand more about a crime she witnessed a decade ago, she disappears . . . in a blink. Finding her means more than simply saving her. It could also be the key to the town’s longest unsolved mystery. Joshua’s in love with Chatham and he’s determined to find her and untangle the web of lies and mystery surrounding her. But who is Chatham really and what is her connection to the crime that was committed so long ago?
