Now, before anyone raises their wand against me, I promise my title does not mean that I dislike Pottermore and wish to see less of it; I am simply a fan of really terrible puns and plays-on-words and was dead set on using the title. Truthfully, I love Pottermore, and have since I first joined back… Continue reading Potter more…or Less?
If I got a dollar for every time I said "You should check out this book. I know you haven't heard of it, but…." I would have a hefty chunk of change (to use for buying books, of course). There are so many amazing books (and series) out there that I am surprised not as… Continue reading Top 5 Wednesday – January 25th, 2017- Favorite Underrated Books
I saw this tag on Anne Sofie's blog siamybooks and I knew I had to do it! I never pass up a chance to inject a little Harry Potter into my life. The tag was originally created by TurtheSympathy on YouTube! 1. EXPECTO PATRONUM – A CHILDHOOD BOOK CONNECTED TO GOOD MEMORIES Since Anne Sofie chose the Little House books… Continue reading The Harry Potter Spells Tag

A/N - Hey guys! The Book Wench here! I know it's been some time since the last Upcoming Releases Post and for that I apologize. Between sickness, Hurricane Matthew, and good-old-fashioned "didn't have time" which is a shame really. But we are back in business, and there is no better time to be back. There are… Continue reading Upcoming Releases – Late November 2016 (November 15th – 30th)
Hello bookworms!! On my last Upcoming Releases post I mentioned Ransom Riggs's "Tales of the Peculiar." I apparently got really excited about it coming out soon because it is actually coming out on September 3rd 2016. I'm sorry for any confusion. I have removed it from the last post (but not the featured image) to avoid… Continue reading The Upcoming Releases – Early September 2016 (September 1st – 15th)
Hello friends and fellow bookworms. Hard to believe 2015 is almost over, isn't it? I have had a great year in terms of reading, although I didn't get to read nearly as many books as I had hoped. I did, however, read an enormous amount of really great books. That said, I would like to… Continue reading My Favorite Books in 2015
Bad jokes aside, I am quite surprised at how many people don't actually like to reread books. I'm equally surprised by how many of those readers think that I am weird because I do. “A truly great book should be read in youth, again in maturity and once more in old age, as a fine… Continue reading To Reread or Not to Reread…I’m sorry, what was the question?
