Up Close and (un)Conventional – Memes

Up Close and (un)Conventional – Memes Welcome to this week’s Up Close and (un)Conventional. This is where I discuss both things that have to do with reading and blogging, and things that just have to do with life in general. This week, I’m going to talk about Memes, they are like the cornerstones of the blogging community in some ways. There are so many amazing ones out there, and especially when I first started blogging almost four years ago, they were like a hidden treasure! Not only did they give […]

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #64 Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookviews.

Review: Wicked Need – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Wicked Need – Sawyer Bennett

Wicked Need is HOT! And it’s also very tender. And there’s some danger and quite a bit of self-doubt. With Wicked Need, Bennett took the tension and the hotness up yet another notch! I felt both sorry for Cat, and was angry at her expense because of what she’d been through with her old-ass husband, and things didn’t exactly get better for her once he kicked the bucket, either. And I was so surprised by Rand’s knight in shining armour complex! He seemed so detached in the prior books in […]

Review: Relativity – Antonia Hayes

Review: Relativity – Antonia Hayes

Relativity is a gem! Ethan is an amazing tween, smart, open-minded and extremely attaching. His story is complicated, and filled with equal measures of heartache and hope. I didn’t really know what to expect when I started Relativity, such a strong, heart-wrenching story was not it, though. That’s what I got – Ethan was such a great main character to follow. He’s young, but very wise, and so smart! Some of the things he talked about went way over my head, but I still never felt stupid. Since he was […]

Review: A Walk in the Sun – Michelle Zink

Review: A Walk in the Sun – Michelle Zink

A Walk in the Sun made me feel the feels! Rose was a strong, young woman, one who didn’t realize her strength until the end of the story One of the main themes of A Walk in the Sun is how grief can change us! Our outlook on life, our plans, our wants even, up to a point, our needs. After Rose’s mother passed away, her father became a shell of his former self, and the only person left to take care of the ranch, the animals and the house […]

Mini Blog Ahead Challenge

The Blog Ahead Challenge is hosted by Anna @ Herding Cats and Burning Soup. I first participated in the full month of November challenge last year, and it was so nice to get farther ahead with my scheduling. That’s why I’m participating in the Mini Blog Ahead challenge now, it runs from May 1 through May 15. As I will be travelling from May 9th and only get back home on the 16th, I will even make my very own challenge a bit shorter than what Anna has planned. I’ll […]

Up Close and (un)Conventional – Keeping Track of Ideas

Up Close and (un)Conventional  – Keeping Track Welcome to this week’s Up Close and (un)Conventional. This is where I discuss both things that have to do with reading and blogging, and things that just have to do with life in general. This week, I’m going to chat about how I keep track of my ideas  – both when it comes to my reviews and other posts I do here. I have this strange thing, where if I think about blogging, or a book, or a review just before I go […]
