Beautiful People || July Edition || Becca's Character

Hello there! It's been a while since I've posted... did you miss me? :) 

One of the reasons why my posting has been... well, non-exsitant in the last few months is because I have a job now! ( Jobs are cool ) Yet quite time consuming and often exhausting. 

Also life in general has been a tad of a rollercoaster and a lot of things have fallen to the side... blogging being one of them. 

Let's pick it up and get on with it then shall we?

Along with Felix Tovar, and Rory Sonders, another character found in my WIP "In the Present Age" is Gilead Hart.

Bookish Book Lover Tag

by Bethany

I've actually had more time to read this summer then I thought, and while that hasn't been a large amount, I still have some fun books to share with you.

Thank you, Abbey, for the tag!

Tag Your Bookish Friends

1) What Book Are You Currently Reading?
    I just, like, still on the first page just, started reading The Rakshasa's Bride by Suzannah Rowntree. I loved her other fairytale retellings, so I'm expecting no less from this. :)

2) What’s The Last Book You Finished?
That would be-

This was interesting. You could tell it was originally a play, because most everything happened in one room, but it was a good little mystery.

3) Favorite Book You Read This Year?
   That goes to Pendragon's Heir.

 I have to admit, after reading the synopsis, I thought it might be a bit silly and cliched, but it blew all my expectations out of the water. I loved the writing, the characters, the plot. All favorites. :)  The only other books I've read about the legend of King Arthur were  The Merlin Spiral, which I liked, but not as much as Pendragon's Heir.

4) What Genre Have You Read Most This Year?
   Non-fiction, actually. Some of my favorites being-

5) What Genre Have You Read Least This Year?
  Contemporary, which would be a zero.

6) What Genre Do You Want To Read More Of?
    I'd like to read more classics. There's a few I'd like to re-read, but there's some others I've picked up still sitting on my shelves unread. From the picture below, I still need to read Romola by George Eliot, A Child's History of England by Charles Dickens, Just David by Eleanor Porter (author of Pollyanna), and Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell.

7) How Many Books Have You Read This Year, And What’s Your Goal?
   I've read 15, and my goal is 40 (it was 50, but there's no way I'll make it to that). Goodreads tells me I'm 6 books behind, so I better start reading faster. :)

8) What’s The Last Book You Bought?
E-book: The Rakasha's Bride. Hard copy:

Doesn't it have a darling cover?
And as a gift for Becca-

That's a hollyhock next to the book, and for those of you who are curious, hollyhocks mean ambition.

9) What Book Are You Saving Up To Buy Next?
 I'd like to buy some of K.M. Weiland's books, like- 

10) How Many Books Did You Check Out Last Library Visit?
 Last time I checked out books at the library I was reading the Ranger's Apprentice series, so it might have been three or four.

Book 5 and this one were my favorites.

11) What’s A Book You Can’t Wait To Read?
Hmmm, I'm not sure.

 12) What’s A Series You’d Recommend to Everyone?

If you haven't ever read the Chronicles of Narnia, go do it right now. My favorite: The Silver Chair.

13) Who’s An Author You’re Hoping Writes More?
  Suzannah Rowntree, definitely. I've really been loving her writing lately.

14) A Few Books Your Heart Adores?
Just a few??? Ok... (sorry for the weird configuration, some of the books didn't like being next to each other.

15) What Series’s Coming Conclusion Makes You Sad?
I don't think I've read any series that have a conclusion coming.

16) What Books Are On Your Wish-List?
   The books that fill in the places between The Ides of April and Beyond the Desert Gate by Mary Ray. There are five books in total in that Roman Empire Sequence, and they've never been reprinted so they are super expensive. I really, really want to read them though, so if I ever find some buried treasure, I know what I'm going to spend it on.

If you wold like to join the fun of this tag, go ahead! I always have trouble figuring out who to pass tags on to.
