(un)Conventionally Forwards – 2018 Releases I’m Excited About

(un)Conventionally Forwards – 2018 Releases I’m Excited About

I can’t have backwards posts and not have any that look forward, right? Looking towards the new year is what it’s all about today. 2018 Releases I’m Excited About The title is pretty self-explanatory, and the titles are in no particular order. Here’s some 2018 Releases I can’t wait to read:   Winter Igniting by Rebecca Zanetti is the fifth book in her exciting Scorpio Syndrome series. It’s a post-apocalyptic story, set in the US after a terrifying virus wipes out a big part of the population. It’s very realistic in many ways, and it’s also very character-driven.       I have already had the pleasure of reading Keep Her Safe by KA Tucker, and I have to say, […]

(un)Conventionally Backwards – Best New-to-me Authors 2017

(un)Conventionally Backwards is my look back at 2017, what happened on the blog. Off the blog. What books did I read? Did I find new authors I loved? You know the drill, right? We all seem to look back when we arrive at the end of a year, so that it’ll be easier to look forwards once we start 2018. I read more than one new-to-me author in 2017, and some of them have become new favorites! Here they are, in no particular order – including the book I read that got me ‘hooked’ on them 😉 (un)Conventionally Backwards – New To Me Authors that have become faves: Becky Albertalli is awesome! I read The Upside of Unrequited this year, […]

(un)Conventionally Backwards – 2017 Favorite Travels Part 3

(un)Conventionally Backwards – 2017 Favorite Travels Part 3

Welcome to my third and last favorite travels post! I’ve had a big year when it comes to bookish shenanigans. I’ve discovered new cities, met with a ton of readers, and spent time with some of my favorite authors as well. 2017 Favorite Travels Part 3 In late September, a French publisher organised the second book festival where they introduced US New Adult authors that have had their books translated to French. This year, the convention was in Cannes in the south of France. The awards ceremony took place at the Cannes Festival Palace, where the movie awards take place every year as well. I traveled with my oldest daughter, Amélie, a friend I met thanks to KA Tucker, and […]

(un)Conventionally Backwards – 2017 Favorite Travels Part 2

Here’s my second Favorite Travels post about a trip I took to a place where not only I got to discover a new city, but I got to spend some of my time with authors and other readers / bloggers. 2017 Favorite Travels In June, Mr. Lex and I went to Berlin for a long weekend, and not only was it my first time in Berlin, the RARE family had an event there that I had my ticket for. Mr. Lex and I spent a lot of time walking everywhere on the Friday, and on the Saturday, after breakfast, I went to the convention. Here, Mr. Lex and I are in front of Brandenburg Tor in the center of Berlin. […]

(un)Conventionally Backwards – 2017 Favorite Travels Part 1

If you’ve been a frequent visitor to (un)Conventional Bookviews, you know I love to travel. And if I can travel some place while also including my love of all things bookish, I think I’m the happiest blogger around 😉 In 2017, I was lucky enough to travel quite a bit, and three of my trips had to do with books, authors and other bloggers, so they are among my favorite travels. 2017 Favorite Travels In May, I went to Atlanta for the RT Booklovers Convention, and it was so much fun! There were some slight problems with the hotel not expecting bookish people to be so present in the bar, but apart from that, and some elevator troubles, it was […]

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #140 – Man Hands

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #140 – Man Hands

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #140 Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookviews. So many of the books I read have food or drinks in them, some I’d love to try, and others I’d never ever want to taste… and I thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes…  If you want to participate, you can grab my logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to me in your own post. The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well […]

Audio Review: Becoming Dragon – Eve Langlais

Audio Review: Becoming Dragon – Eve Langlais

Becoming Dragon was a delightful tale, filled with humor, action, steam and more. The narration was well done, and I was so happy to have this to listen to on my commute to and from work. Story: Becoming Dragon is about… you guessed it – dragons! And it’s by Eve Langlais, so I knew I was in for some good laughs. Plus steamy romance, and I also got a rather down to earth and doubting hero. Brandon had been experimented on, and with his DNA sliced, he was in a weird hybrid form that made him think of himself as a monster. Aimi, however, did not find him to be monstrous at all. Quite the opposite, which made for some […]
