Auto-Buy Authors

I like books. I like owning physical books, but because my wallet hates me when I splurge on books, I try to be very selective of which books I buy. But when certain authors release a new book, I’m like:

I have no self-control. I hope I’m not the only one who does this.

Top 10 Books I Read in 2017

2017 is coming to an end… and thank goodness for that. It’s been a rough year, to say the least, but that didn’t stop me from reading some pretty freaking awesome books. I didn’t read as much as I wanted to this year, but that just means I’m going to try extra hard in 2018 to get to all the books I want to read.

I’ve decided to compile a list of my most anticipated releases of 2018 because I normally don’t do monthly anticipated releases.

(All the synopses in this point are taken directly from Goodreads.)

(There are some spoilers as some of these books are part of a series. I put spoiler warnings before their synopses and provided a drop down so the summaries are hidden unless you click on the drop down.)

Characters IRL: Jobs – The Lunar Chronicles

Whenever I daydream, I always think about what it would be like if fictional characters from books were to live in the world we live in today. That got me thinking, what would their hobbies be? Where would they live? What jobs would they hold?

And then I thought, I should make that into a blog post! So here I am…

I was going to do this post for Throne of Glass characters (go figure) but decided against it because I’ve made so many posts about them already (or so I tell myself. To be truthful, I’m not doing TOG characters because I couldn’t think of any occupation for them except soldier, or hitman, or something along those lines). Instead, I’m doing characters from The Lunar Chronicles because each of them have their strengths and weaknesses that make their group as awesome as it is.

New month means new book releases. I’m in a book buying ban right now because I already have too many books that I own but haven’t read. I need to get onto that.

However, that doesn’t stop me from being excited for some new releases.

Dream Author Panel

Everyone booklover has their dream author panel containing their favorite authors. I am no exception. To be completely honest, I spend 50% of the time I’m awake daydreaming, and the majority of those dreams are about meeting my favorite authors.

Everbrite has this ongoing project that help people find events that they may be interested in, including things like author panels and book signings. When they talked about building your own dream author panel, I had to make one of my own. You can check out their website at https://www.eventbrite.com/l/conferences/.
