BBH· It’s Pride Time

About the Book Blogger Hop by Coffee Adicted Writer

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, I relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end 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 question:.

What’s the oldest work (by publication date) you’ve read?

Since I want to talk about Pride on this posts I’ll pick the one of Achilles getting so angry about Hector killing his boyfriend that he clogs the fucking river with dead bodies and then fights the river and literally everyone else

1372

I’ve read enough ancient classics that this is a hard questios because they are SO old we don’t even know which came first….


Bloggers to follow

Bookish Heights is giving us all the underhyped recs! I love these kinds of TBRs because it always helps me find new authors to love and if you see the other posts on the blog you’ll find even more book recomendations!

Looking to add more color to your pride? Than you should definitely head over to Michelle Likes Things she has some amazing recs but I especially liked the space for queer authors of color

Scribbles & Stories is all of us by making a TBR for a world where one can read infinite books (hard same), the books mentioned are really good and I’ve gotten some I hadn’t heard about before

WoW·The Infinite Noise

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

Listen, it doesn’t matter how far away these books are because I already love them and everyone else should be looking out for them too


A while ago I made a post talking about my favorite podcasts and this particular book is a spinoff of one of them: The Bright Sessions (about a therapist whose patients are all atypical, as in: they have powers)

Call Down the Hawk

Dreamer Trilogy #1

by Maggie Stiefvater

The dreamers walk among us . . . and so do the dreamed. Those who dream cannot stop dreaming – they can only try to control it. Those who are dreamed cannot have their own lives – they will sleep forever if their dreamers die.

And then there are those who are drawn to the dreamers. To use them. To trap them. To kill them before their dreams destroy us all.

Ronan Lynch is a dreamer. He can pull both curiosities and catastrophes out of his dreams and into his compromised reality.

Jordan Hennessy is a thief. The closer she comes to the dream object she is after, the more inextricably she becomes tied to it.

Carmen Farooq-Lane is a hunter. Her brother was a dreamer . . . and a killer. She has seen what dreaming can do to a person. And she has seen the damage that dreamers can do. But that is nothing compared to the destruction that is about to be unleashed. . . .


AND NOW YOU CAN READ AN EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT HERE

I just started it and it’s amazing. The writing is whimsical and the characters are all intriguing. I wasn’t expecting much but only the first chapter is enough to get hooked AND THERE’S 8 FULL CHAPTERS

Cass isn’t sure about her new mission, but she does know the sinister Red Raven haunting the city doesn’t belong in her world.
