#BoutofBooks 25 Favorites and #Fandom #GeekingOut and #DiverseReads


Bout of Books
Bout of Books 25

OMG!!! Guys, I’m geeking out over here. I may have mentioned my love of the Red Queen series.
(“By ‘mention’ you mean not shutting up about it?” Umm… yes…)
Today, this happened:

@VictoriaAveyard liked @JLenniDorner tweet May 14 2019

I’ll grant you that she’s tagged in the tweet, because it’s my bookish favorites and NATURALLY I put one of hers in there because she’s one of my favorite authors. (Even more so after reading her endnotes. Seriously, if you haven’t read the books and aren’t into future fantasy stuff, at least do yourself the favor of reading the personal notes she left at the end of the books because OMG.)

You know, that’s kind of the author dream. I may need to add it to my life goals. Have a fan who geeks out because I hit like on their tweet. Anyway, that’s the coolest thing that’s ever happened to me during Bout of Books. No, wait… I had a brief chat with Mary Elizabeth Summer after I reviewed her book. Was that during bout of books or because I’m on her mailing list? I’m not totally sure. ANYWAY. Enough of my fandom rambling. Onto today’s wrap-up!

Today’s challenge:

Bookish favorites

Today is all about sharing your favorites. Get wild. Share your favorite author, audiobook, book, series . . . if you have a favorite anything, today’s the day to shout it out.

There’s a better picture of my favorite bookmark. I probably like it because of my tabletop RPG days.
