30DaysOfThanks
Hi Y’all! It is November and I am bringing back #30DaysOfThanks for Year 4 aka #30DaysOfThanks2015. I had so much fun doing this last 3 years that I thought I would recycle the program again this year. Switching it up this year with 3 posts a day–1 author, 1 narrator, and 1 blogger that really touched me this year. I didn’t have room to thank everyone because really my life overfloweth with awesome bloggers, books, and listening enjoyment. I tried to fit in some new people who have come into my life/reading enjoyment the last year while still shouting out my tribe of many years. I am so glad that I didn’t have room because it means my life ROCKS!

So I made an AWESOME new friend this year that doesn’t know that I will be sleeping on her couch sometime in the next two years cause I am TOTALLY going to visit! Lexxie is one of those people who I’m like “how did I not know her all my life”. She if fun! She reads good books! She laughs with all her might! She is just the purest joy to be around. I love her to bits and pieces. I am so glad that she brought me into her pod of people and made me one of the gang. I feel honored to just be in her orb!

About Lexxie (from her blog)

unConventionalBookViews_AvatarWelcome to (un)Conventional Bookviews! If you are here, it means you are wondering who this Lexxie person is, and you want to find out some more, right? I have just finished my Bachelor’s degree in English literature in the fall of 2014, and started my MA classes the next semester.

Since I was little, I have loved reading, but what I have to read for school isn’t always what I’d have chosen to read for myself, however, writing about what I read has become almost second nature. That’s why I started (un)Conventional Bookviews on June 2nd 2012. (un)Conventional Bookviews has become another way to share my love of books with other booklovers. I review based on the emotions a book brought me – this might seem a little strange, but to me it is logical.

I am pretty much an omnivore when it comes to book, although I prefer to read fiction. I am not too particular about the genres, especially since I started blogging. I love reading a story where the world-building is making me feel like I am visiting a far-away place, and this can happen both in contemporary novels, fantasy, paranormal stories, dystopia and others. It’s also quite important to me that there is character development – if the characters don’t learn anything at all from their mistakes, I probably won’t really enjoy reading about them.

All books I read make me have an emotional response, and these emotions are part of how I review and rate a book. If I’m bored while reading, it doesn’t really bode well for the book in question. If I am happy or sad while reading, it is usually good. I am also quite picky with typos and grammatical errors, I want to read what is a finished book, and there shouldn’t be typos or other errors on every single page. A book with a lot of errors takes my mind away from the story and its characters, and makes me want to keep a red pen in hand instead of being immersed in a different world.

  1. Nice to meet you here Lexxie, and I agree with your vision: a book is a good book if it tugs on your emotions. Totally amazing if you can end a book with a smile, while the tears are still drying on your cheeks.

  2. Thank you so much for including me in your month of thanks, Felicia!! I loved meeting you and hanging out with you in Dallas, too! And sharing some lovely breakfasts, chats and laughs 🙂 This blogging community is so amazing, and I love that I have you among my friends now xoxo

  3. Yay Lexxie! I only recently discovered her blog and follow her reading. We share lots of the same book interests and she’s more forgiving than me in the Whiskey Creek series:) Her blog is wonderfully creative.
