TTT: Ten books for book clubs that like Historical Nonfiction

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish I realized the other day that I have not ONCE talked about nonfiction on this lovely blog o’mine. I probably read 5-10 nonfiction books a year (which is not a lot compared to all the YA, Fantasy, HF, chocolate I consume annually), but that’s partially due to my…

Witty Wednesday Words: The Hammer of Thor

Because alliteration makes everything better? (this is where you nod your head ;p) With the help of the fabulous Kalli (over at K the Ravenous Reader), I made up my own version of an established meme for Wednesdays because I’ve been eyeing a SECOND Tuesday Meme, Teaser Tuesdays.

Bookish Obsessions: CANDLES

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a bookworm in possession of extra funds, must be in want of bookish accessories.
