Norse Mythology Book Tag

Another Sunday, another book tag.

I saw the cover reveal for Adrienne Young’s Sky in the Deep (you should go look at it if you haven’t because it’s badass). It’s her Viking-inspired fantasy story coming out in April next year and I’m super excited about it! It also made me think of this tag I saw Kristi from @ConfessionsofaYAReader do this, and I though it was perfect. Vikings. Norse mythology. You get it. Make sure you ckeck out Kristi and the creator of the tag, Kyera! Continue reading

First Lines Fridays #24

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Top 5 Wednesday | Demons

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly challenge for book bloggers, vloggers, and book lovers, hosted by Lainey and Sam. The goal is to choose their top 5 picks for the week’s given challenge. Find out more on the  Goodreads group page!

This week’s topic is all about our favorite paranormal creatures and I picked DEMONS! I picked demons for 2 reasons: 1) I feel like we don’t really have enough of them compared to other paranormal creatures, and 2) They’re super fun to read. I also feel like we get some nice grey morality in demon books – which I always love! And where there are demons, there are usually another paranormal creature or two 😉

Top 10 Tuesday | Book + Recipe Pairings

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish

This week’s topic is a fun one! It’s all about food and books – two of my favorite things. I decided to pick 10 books and pair a recipe that makes me think of the book. Now most of these are desserts, with a few drinks thrown in, but I love baking so I naturally gravitated toward those recipes. Hope you enjoy them!
