Genre Switcheroo - Book Blogger Hop

 The Book Blogger Hop is hosted weekly by Coffee Addicted Writer on Fridays and ends the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog. 

 

This week's prompt is:




Have you ever switched reading genres? If so, why?

I enjoy the good ol' switcheroo, shaking  things up with what I'm reading. I mean after all, variety is the spice of life. Though I'll admit I do often stick to the same genres. Cozy fantasy is my favorite, but the pickings are slim. So I spice things up by reading some horror, general fiction and gothic fantasy in between.

What about you? Do you switch up genres you read? Why or why not?


Signal To Noise - Review

Signal to NoiseSignal to Noise by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was initially captured by the cover art and then intrigued by the line "for fans of Stranger Things." That's me. I'm a fan of Stranger Things. So I hurriedly applied for the ARC and was delighted to receive it just a few days later!

Sundial Review

SundialSundial by Catriona Ward
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Two sisters. One perfect, one not. One of them can see dead things and is fascinated by the morbid. A life or death situation makes it evident that things must change. The bad streak must go. So off to the Sundial, the family homestead, to get things sorted out.

Book Blogger Hop - Do you read while listening?

 The Book Blogger Hop is hosted weekly by Coffee Addicted Writer on Fridays and ends the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog. 

 

This week's prompt is:


If you are listening to an audiobook, do you follow along with the print version?

When I listen to an audiobook, it's because I need my hands and/or my eyes. So no, I do not read along in print while an audiobook plays. That kind of multisensory reading could be beneficial to me if I were needing to thoroughly study something though! I could see it being useful for college school work. However in the practical sense, it just wouldn't work for me for pleasure. I enjoy listening to audiobooks while driving, doing laundry, making dinner etc. It's all about using the most of my time with audiobooks. I might as well just read, which is often times faster and I can speed read if needed *wink*

What about you? Do you read and listen? Why or why not?

What Moves The Dead - Review

What Moves the DeadWhat Moves the Dead by T. Kingfisher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Edgar Allan Poe fans rejoice!

What Moves The Dead is a beautifully woven retelling of The Fall Of The House Of Usher.

Unsettling. Disturbing. Surprising.
