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!
Lexxie from (un)Conventional Book Blog
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)
Welcome 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.
Some of her favorite books
- Surviving Ice (Burying Water #4) by K. A. Tucker
- Walk Through Fire (Chaos #4) by Kristen Ashley
- The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende
- Friction by Sawyer Bennett
- Wicked Edge (Realm Enforcers #2) by Rebecca Zanetti
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
