Wonder Wednesday: Life Changing Books

Hello everyone, welcome to Wonder Wednesday! I hope you’re all staying nice and toasty in this very cold winter. Today I’d like to talk about life changing books. Now, perhaps life changing may seem like an extreme, but as a lover of books I feel like there are many books that have had a very powerful effect on me. Books have the power to make us question our assumptions, bias, and encourage us to consider ideas maybe we haven’t thought about before.

Do you have a book that you feel like has been life changing for you? How has it changed your perspective or affected you?

Do you feel like books have the power to create a deeper understanding for something in people or are they just for fun?


I’d love to hear your thoughts! Please feel free to comment below!

Wonder Wednesday: Diversity in YA vs Adult Fiction

Hello everyone and welcome to Wonder Wednesday. A discussion post to talk about things I and maybe you have been wondering about.

The question of the day: Have you noticed a difference in the amount of diversity in YA fiction VS adult fiction? Is there really a difference at all?

I’ve always spent quite a bit of time in libraries and book stores, but since starting this I’ve been looking with a bit more of a discerning eye I’ve noticed something odd. There seems to be a lot more diversity in YA fiction then in adult fiction. Have you noticed this too? Am I crazy? Is it maybe just my beloved fantasy genre hasn’t reached a good point yet? I have so many questions floating in my head about this. Please share your thoughts! I’d love to know what you think.

Wonder Wednesday

Welcome to Wonder Wednesday! This idea came into being when I was wondering how to interact more with all of you. I’m a bit more an introvert so I thought the best way to get to talk with you all was to dedicate a post a week to a question for us all to discuss if you’re interested. These questions will usually be related in some way to books, reading, or writing since that’s what we’re all here for.

My first wonder is, what is your favorite fantasy book or book series? And what do you enjoy about it? Is it the characters? The plot? The wonderful world that you just want to be a part of?

I personally have a really hard time with this question, because I have lots of books I have enjoyed reading. I would say right now though that it is The Others series by Anne Bishop. It’s five books long. I love the characters, plot, and the world though based on ours is fascinating. Has anyone read this series? I look forward to hearing from you!
