Happy 4th of July everyone! This year has been challenging for all of us but take a break and celebrate. Or, relax with a good book. I was wondering what books I should add to my TBR (to be read) pile when I realized a big national holiday was right around the corner. And now …
Find all the book-related posts you could ever need. Fellow bookworms, you will see book reviews, book tags, book lists, and posts about books. My personal favorites are the book tours and book tags. I would consider myself to be a bookworm, but I have found that every bookworm is different. Maybe you are just looking for your next read. That works perfectly well because I have so many suggestions for you! Maybe you just like talking about books. If that is the case, then no worries because I love talking about books too. Whatever it is you are looking for, I have it. If I don’t, then I encourage you to reach out to me in the comments or via my contact page and I will be sure to add in what you want to see!
Not a bookworm yet? That’s awesome! Why you ask. Because one of the many reasons I started this blog was to increase the number of readers in this world. The more bookworms there are the better! If you don’t read much, I suggest starting out with some books that are shorter in length. Or, you could check out some of the books that I have rated 5/5 stars. Those are sure to catch your interest. The best way to become a bookworm or consistent reader is to find the genre you like the most. For many, that genre is fantasy, so you could always start by checking out that genre first. Hopefully, these suggestions have helped you to at least get started.
Happy reading fellow bookworms!
I want to tell you my first impressions with you because I am lucky enough to give you a little excerpt from the book! Isn’t that exciting? Okay, my thoughts. I really enjoyed the first chapter because I felt like I was inside of Lizzie’s head. She sounds like she is sporadic and intelligent, and looking for closure. I am also a lover of amazing first liners in a book and I thought it was very captivating from the get. Okay, enough about my thoughts, I want to hear yours so here is the excerpt from the first chapter which is from the point of view of Lizzie (well, actually its the whole first chapter):
Phoenix of Fyre follows a woman named Phoenix from childhood into adulthood. She was taught to fight by her father who is a blacksmith but at a very young age, she loses her family due to an attack on the kingdom of Cicero by the Tuarentian nation. Phoenix discovers that not only is she a good sword fighter, but she is also a sorceress.
Welcome to my first author interview ever! Have you heard of John D. Pepe? Well, your about to. I had the privilege of interviewing John D. Pepe who is the author of The Lone Wolf. Let’s cover the basics before we dive into the Q&A.
The Lone Wolf is a fantasy novel with ogres, thieves, armies, and more. Here is the summary:
I love to read. I love building my book collection more. But, I do a lot more than just thumbing through pages endlessly. I thought it would be fun to share with you what I do when I’m not reading and also provide you some hobby list ideas I came up with. It’s nothing original but it will be a mix of what I like to do and some things I would like to do.
When I’m not reading, I like to be outside. I love to go on walks, get in the car and go somewhere, swim, hang out with my boyfriend, draw/paint, and listen to music. My boyfriend and I joke that I’m like a dog because of how much I like to go on walks and get in the car to go places. I think it’s hilarious, but really who doesn’t like to get outside at least some of the time?
This is my first cover reveal ever, can you believe it?! The book is called The Dead Daughter by Aimee Shaye (scroll to the end of my post if you want to see the cover). It isn’t available for purchase yet but you can pre-order it! Also, if you pre-order it, you will get a free gift as well (again, scroll to the bottom for more info on this). Before I go all nerdy and bookwormy on you, here is a little summary for the book:

Hello, fellow bookworms! I don’t know about you but when I read a book, some things just stick. I love book quotes; especially unforgettable book quotes. Sometimes, when I see a quote on social media, it makes me want to read that book…I am a walking reference for movies and books. For me, it just happens in everyday conversation. Someone says something and that thing triggers in my mind to a line from a movie or a book.
