It’s Easy to be Green (and Fun) (A Book List)

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Love this day. It celebrates my favorite color, and beer, and leprechauns and the Irish. The holiday is so much more than that, I know. This is the celebration Ireland’s patron saint and its culture. A beautiful culture by the way.

And the leprechauns….

Thank you, Neil Gaiman for American Gods.

 

Here, I’ve got a special list of books of which I’ve picked out according to the specific guidelines listed below in celebration of

  • Books with green or luck in the title.
  • Books with green covers.
  • Books that take place in Ireland.
  • Can’t be in the middle of a series but can start one because it would be awkward to start in the middle of a journey, though not unheard of. I’m guilty of this, but still.
  • Books about St. Patrick’s Day (I couldn’t find one! I am now dying to read a YA book about luck, magic, Celtic culture, and St. Patrick’s day. Artemis Fowl is close, but just doesn’t cut it even though this spoiled, evil child is out for gold and magic.)

Grab a beer and settle in, though I must say, it’s not easy to read while tipsy. I know from personal experience.Either the book tips sideways or I do. That or the words move and that makes reading difficult. However, there are some good ones on this list!

Have an amazing GREEN day and be safe. Love you, book nerds.

Midnight Tease

Midnight Tease - Giphy

Heya, book clan!

It’s midnight hour! Only crazy people are still awake in the world right now, which means you’re crazy. Just kidding…or am I? Lately, I’ve been up until nearly 4am. A Redbull a night keeps the boogieman away.

But not really haha. Just been getting a lot of writing done and getting reacquainted with my TV shows since the Olympics are officially over and hopefully so is winter. It’s been a few weeks since it’s snowed so I’m hoping the rain that’s been coming down means that Spring is upon us!

spring

There’s a few books I’m really looking forward and a few I’m looking forward to being done. LOL. There are just some books that are much longer than you anticipated.

Anywho, since you’re awake, here’s what is coming up this month:

Reborn
Author: C.C. Hunter

Reborn

This was one of those books that I saw and went, “Sure, why not?” I know vampires are involved, but that’s about it so far. I’m prepared to be surprised.

 

Love & Gelato
Author: Jennifer Evan Welch

Love and Gelato

This was a Christmas present from my best friend. I love her do so much and am ecstatic to get it read. When I read the description of this my sweet tooth started aching.

 

Wicked Game & Bad to the Bone
Author: Jeri Smith Ready

Wicked Game and Bad to the Bone

More vampires! Instead of drama though, there’s spunk, fun and badassery. Sometimes I need that.

 

The Raven & Other stories
Author: Edgar Allan Poe

The Raven

A taste of Goth and horror. I can’t wait to reread some of these, like The Raven and Tell-Tale Heart. The Poe-man is one of my FAVORITE writers. There’s this fog of darkness that he brings out that stuns you and drags you in. Very chilling stuff.

There you have it. Tis the season for bunnies and peeps, and I am not ashamed to say that I really REALLY love peeps. The sour watermelon are my favorite. Probably buying over a dozen packs this year. And then there’s the warm weather approaching. Can’t wait! I live for sweating weather.

Happy March and happy reading!
