Five Year Blogoversary

Five Year Blogoversary

It’s a bit hard to belive, but I’ve been blogging here at (un)Conventional Bookviews for five years now. I started on Blogger on June 2nd, 2012. Five Year Blogoversary So, to celebrate, and to thank those of you who have continued to visit me during this very, very busy semester where I haven’t been a good blogger friend at all, I want to share a giveaway with you all. But first, let’s take a quick look at what’s been going on here for these past years. I only stayed on blogger for a few months, then I switched to a self-host wordpress blog, as I saw all the amazing plugins other bloggers were using. I still love self-hosting, both for […]

Weekend Wrap-up #189 – Welcome June

Weekend Wrap-up #189 – Welcome June

Weekend Wrap-up is where I share my new books, as well as what happened here at (un)Conventional Bookviews and elsewhere in the blogoshpere. I’m linking up with the usual suspects, AKA Team Tynga’s Reviews and Caffeinated Reviewer. STS #189 Stacking The Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews is all about the latest additions to my library – virtual or actual, with books that are  bought, borrowed, won or ARCs  I will (probably) be reading soon. Without further ado, here’s what I added to my bloated shelves this past week: I had to buy the two Remember When books, because as soon as I finished reading the first book, I needed more. Loved that trilogy so much! Marking Time and The Player were freebies, […]

Safe and Sexy #16 – Murphy’s Law

Safe and Sexy #16 – Murphy’s Law

Safe & Sexy #16 I’ve had the idea for a feature about safe sex for a long time, ever since I had my discussion post with the same name a long time ago! And finally, Safe & Sexy was born. It’s where I will share a quote from a story I have read, and where there is a lot of hotness and sexiness, but where they still take the time to be safe! It’s important to me to read books that make me dream, but I also want them to be somewhat realistic. And to me, characters seem realistic when they take care of themselves and their partner(s)! Safe sex is a great way to do so, and when an […]

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #116 – Bounty

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #116 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 […]

Review: Murphy’s Law – Lori Foster

Review: Murphy’s Law – Lori Foster

Murphy’s Law was fun! And sweet. And romantic. And filled with suspense and danger, too. Foster never fails to delight me, and I have to say that Murphy’s Law hit the right spot. Ashley and Quinton were both characters I could relate to, even if they are very different from me. Ashley really touched me, because she was such an independent woman, but still managed to ask for help when she needed it. And she definitely knew when she should stop being stubborn, and make sure she and the people she cared about would stay safe… at least as safe as possible. The friendships in Murphy’s Law spoke to me as well, and I enjoyed wedding planning, hanging out, being […]

Review: Spectacle – Rachel Vincent

Review: Spectacle – Rachel Vincent

Spectacle was a dark, yet beautiful story. Where the cryptids were taken from relative freedom to a prison more horrible than even their worst nightmares could conjure. Spectacle was even darker than Menagerie, because Delilah and her companions had managed to live for a while in relative freedom only to be caught by someone far worse than Metzger. At first, Gallagher is taken to a human prison, but this only makes Delilah’s anxiety worse, as she hasn’t had any news from him since she and some of the other female cryptids from the menagerie were taken to their new dormitory. I felt every anxious and fearful feeling Delilah and the others felt, and I have to admit that during Spectacle, my […]
