These Books Will Draw You In, Chew You Up, and Spit You Back Out

These Books Will Draw You In, Chew You Up, and Spit You Back Out

I’m a slow enough reader that I don’t read very many books in one sitting. But there ARE books that I WISH I could manage to do that with! Instead, I’ve decided to list books that kept me completely entranced, either because of the emotions involved, or the back-to-back-to-back action, or the tension, or a […]

There are Too Many Books I Must Read this Spring! [But Here are Ten]

There are Too Many Books I Must Read this Spring! [But Here are Ten]

There are dozens of books that I’m really hoping to get around to reading this spring. But I’ve (somehow — miraculously) managed to narrow it down to my top ten picks. Some of these are new releases, and others are things I’m just plain in the mood for. Etched in Bone — I am beyond […]

Ten Classics That I’ve Never Read (But Probably Should)

Ten Classics That I’ve Never Read (But Probably Should)

Let’s start this post off right by saying that a) The only classics I’ve ever actually read were ones I was forced to read at school; and b) There are a LOT more than 10 that really should be on the list. Some of these I’m actually kind of ashamed to admit — there are […]

My Favorite Ships to Ship in the Fantasy Genre

My Favorite Ships to Ship in the Fantasy Genre

Obviously, I read a LOT of fantasy. (If you haven’t figured out that FaerieFits is basically just about fantasy, well, it is). And while a lot of fantasy is about magic and creatures and, well, fantastical things, there’s also a lot of love going on. And since it’s Valentine’s Day, it makes an awful lot of sense […]

Sometimes I Just Wish There Were a Little Less Romance & Sex

Sometimes I Just Wish There Were a Little Less Romance & Sex

It’s not that I don’t like romance. Sure, a healthy dose of it is great. But sometimes it kind of takes over, you know? And … well, there are a LOT of books that I just feel like the romance is too distracting from the more interesting things. The All Souls Trilogy — I get that the […]

My Lovely Beautiful Covers That I Haven’t Read Yet

My Lovely Beautiful Covers That I Haven’t Read Yet

I have a terrible tendency to buy beautiful books that I never get around to actually reading. It’s awful, I know. (But none of you can judge because I KNOW you do it too!) (And don’t try to convince me that you don’t. I won’t believe you.) (Unless you come bearing wonderful bribes.) (Like beautiful books […]

My Most Recent Audiobook Haul & Why I Am Supremely Excited

I’ve just recently purchased a TON of audiobooks using some saved up Audible credits (seriously, we had a ton that had gone unused, so I took full advantage). I’d like to share some of the ones I’m most excited about and can’t wait to listen to 🙂 Carve the Mark – I figure it would be […]
