Thursday's Discussion - Long Book Series

Why Long Book Series Are Better

Everyone has different opinions, we are all unique with different likes and dislikes. This is not meant to offend or put down anyone's taste. If you prefer a good standalone or shorter series, that's totally fine and dandy! This is just my personal preference. Let's get to it!

Character Development Matters
I'm a huge character driven reader. I care more about characters than anything else. I can have amazing fleshed out characters and kind of meh world building and still enjoy the book so freaking much. So with a longer series, I get to spend more time with these characters that I have fallen in love with and never want to part form.

I'm Not Good at Saying Goodbye
I am so bad when it comes to saying goodbye to a series that I love. Take Twilight for example, back when I was first reading that series in 2008, I actually stopped reading a few chapters from the end because I couldn't handle saying goodbye. It was YEARS later when I finally read the very end. With longer series, I can get more and not have to worry about that awful goodbye.

World Building - The Bigger the Better
Well, the world doesn't have to be huge but more details can be added. So, yes, I did say that characters matter most to me but with more books means a richer world, a world so vivid that it feels like it's real. Like Harry Potter, that world is so amazingly detailed that to this day, people still fawn over it.

Anticipation - The Christmas Morning Effect 
Unless you're a George R. R. Martin fan, you can look forward to having a new book every year. Nothing beats that feeling of finally waiting soooo long for the next book in your favorite series and then finally holding it in your hands. NOTHING!

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Short Update + The Stand-In Book Review

I've been lurking around your blogs for a few hours today and trying to catch up but I doubt I will. I've just missed so much! Sorry!  Today, I'm feeling a little bit better so I thought I would update you guys, since I've not blogged any in two weeks. The posts you've seen since then are just ones that I had scheduled for a while. I'm on the hunt for an anxiety medicine and had a really bad reaction to one my doctor put me on. I'm currently on steroids for a week to help that reaction.  Also, my grandma passed away recently and I've been trying to deal with that and help my family. They are really having it rough right now and it's been killing me trying to help them.  Then there's stuff with my kiddo. So yeah, I've been gone for a bit and dealing with things. I'm really hoping to get straightened out and get back to normal because this has been a sucky time.  Onto something bookish! I did manage to finish a book before everything kinda

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup - Review

The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of a multibillion-dollar startup, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end in the face of pressure and threats from the CEO and her lawyers. In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup "unicorn" promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood tests significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn't work. For years, Holmes had been misleading investors, FDA officials, and her own employees. When Carreyrou, working at The Wall Street Journal, got a tip from a former Theranos employee and started asking questions,
