Beat The Back List| 2019

What is Beat the Backlist?

“This reading challenge dedicated to helping you knock those backlist books off your ever-growing to read stack. Any genre, any format, any length.

What is a “backlist” book, you may ask? This is any book that has already been released. For the purposes of this challenge, this is any book published in 2018 or earlier. If you have books on your TBR from 2018 and before, then this is the challenge for you.”

I am joining in the normal Beat the Backlist as well as the Hogwarts Mini Challenge where you enter in the books you’ve read throughout the year and you get points for your house. I am most certainly Hufflepuff.

Fifteen years later she’s got a degree in hospitality management and a great job at a high-end boutique hotel in Baltimore. Until, that is, the hotel is acquired by a chain, and she’s laid off. When Kate’s high school best friend calls with a mysterious invitation to come talk with the town leaders of Asheford, she agrees to make the trip, curious about where this new opportunity might lead.

Once Kate arrives, the town council members reveal that their town is on the verge of going bankrupt, and they’ve decided that Kate’s skills and knowledge make her the perfect person to cure all their ills. The town has used its last available funds to buy the huge Victorian mansion just outside of town, hoping to use it to attract some of the tourists who travel to visit the nearby Civil War battle sites. Kate has less-than-fond memories of the mansion, for personal reasons, but to make matters worse, the only person who has presented a possible alternate plan is Cordelia Walker—Kate’s high school nemesis.

But a few days later, while touring the mansion, Kate stumbles over a body—and it’s none other than Cordelia.

Library-A-Thon TBR

A TBR Brought to you for the
Hello everyone! I know it has been a while since my last post! Life has been incredibly busy! As a teacher the end of the school year is FAST approaching and there are so many things to do and so little time! I have been reading A LOT better in the month of May, let me tell you though! A lot better. I have actually been reaching a little bit outside of my comfort zone lately as well, which I am proud of. I needed a short reprieve from Cozies for a little bit and now I am ready to tackle my Cozy TBR Pile!

As stated above this is my short TBR for the Library-A-Thon that will be held June 3rd 2018 thru June 9th 2018. I was tagged to be apart of this Readathon by my good friend Jashana , if you are NOT following her I suggest you get to it! She is hilarious, blunt, and stick you right with what she is thinking! She is a breath of fresh air! The Creator Saajid and Co-Hosts are Kelly and Kathy. Go follow their channels and without further ado, let’s get into this TBR!


There are 6 Challenges to this Library-A-Thon:

1. Borrow and read a book set in a country that you’ve never read a book set in before.

2. Borrow and read a book that you’ve never heard of before.

3. Borrow and read a book that’s out of your comfort zone (genre, age group, themes, etc.)

4. Borrow and read a book that you’ve been meaning to read, but haven’t gotten around to.

5. Borrow and read a book recommended by a librarian.

6. Borrow and read a bookish book (for instance, a book about books, a book with ‘book’ in the title or a book with a book on the cover).


I have three books that I am really excited to read! What’s awesome is that I went onto Hoopla, Overdrive, and My Library’s App to find all of these books and they were all suggested or they popped up to be read!

download

For the challenges of Borrow and read a book set in a country that you’ve never read a book set in before and a book outside of your comfort zone I am choosing Cinder By: Marissa Meyer!

This is a retelling of Cinderella I believe. I have seen this series roaming around Booktube over the past year, but I haven’t read or picked it up until now. I am going to try and read it as an Audiobook from Hoopla.

I don’t normally read Young Adult fiction so it is kind of outside of my comfort zone, but I am still excited and intrigued by the idea of this series.

Synopsis below:
CINDER, a gifted mechanic in New Beijing, is also a cyborg. She’s reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s sudden illness. But when her life becomes entwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she finds herself at the centre of a violent struggle between the desires of an evil queen – and a dangerous temptation.

Cinder is caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal. Now she must uncover secrets about her mysterious past in order to protect Earth’s future.


download-1For Challenges 5 and 6:

5. Borrow and read a book recommended by a librarian.

6. Borrow and read a bookish book (for instance, a book about books, a book with ‘book’ in the title or a book with a book on the cover).

I have chosen “The Library at the Edge of the World” By: Felicity Hayes-McCoy! This book seemed to fit these two challenges PERFECTLY! Seriously, I couldn’t have planned it better!

Synopsis Below:
As she drives her mobile library van between villages of Ireland’s West Coast, Hanna Casey tries not to think about a lot of things. Like the sophisticated lifestyle she abandoned after finding her English barrister husband in bed with another woman. Or that she’s back in Lissbeg, the rural Irish town she walked away from in her teens, living in the back bedroom of her overbearing mother’s retirement bungalow. Or, worse yet, her nagging fear that, as the local librarian and a prominent figure in the community, her failed marriage and ignominious return have made her a focus of gossip.

With her teenage daughter, Jazz, off traveling the world and her relationship with her own mother growing increasingly tense, Hanna is determined to reclaim her independence by restoring a derelict cottage left to her by her great-aunt. But when the threatened closure of the Lissbeg Library puts her personal plans in jeopardy, Hanna finds herself leading a battle to restore the heart and soul of the Finfarran Peninsula’s fragmented community. And she’s about to discover that the neighbors she’d always kept at a distance have come to mean more to her than she ever could have imagined.


download-2

This book covers two challenges that seem to negate each other, but I promise that I makes sense, at least…to me it does!

Challenges 2 and 4
2. Borrow and read a book that you’ve never heard of before.

4. Borrow and read a book that you’ve been meaning to read, but haven’t gotten around to.

As you all know I love Agatha Christie! The Mother of Cozy Mysteries! I have really been meaning to read more of her work (hence challenge 4). I am so happy that the library had a short story that I have never heard of before. I have heard about Tommy & Tuppence, but I didn’t know anything about their storyline or anything about the characters (hence challenge 2)!

Synopsis below:

Captain Sessle is found stabbed through the heart with a hatpin, and the only clue is a bit of red wool in his hand. A pretty blonde is charged because she was wearing a bright red wool coat, but the Beresfords aren’t so sure. Was there more behind the killing than a cute girl and some red yarn?


That is the end of my TBR for the Library-A-Thon! I am super excited to get started on these books after the school year is over! I am super excited that this readathon starts RIGHT after school ends!

Create Your Own Book Box Tag

Copy of Copy of Camp NaNoWriMo & Wordsonthepageathon.png

Does anyone else sign up for book boxes?! Page Habit. Owl Crate. Fairy Loot. There are so many different types of book boxes out there! SO MANY! How do you know which one to pick!?! Are you going to LOVE everything that comes in the box!?!

I have been so overwhelmed when it comes to trying to pick the perfect book box. I get frustrated when I get a box and I am not going to read the book. This got me thinking. What book box would I create?! What goodies would I put in the box!?! What would be MY box’s theme?

The idea of creating a book box is super exciting! It’s creating a whole reading experience for the customers. So, I thought, why not make a tag based on Creating Your Own Book Box!?! So, without further ado, let’s get into this!


GenresQuestion 1: What would your genre be?

I know that a lot of boxes surround themselves in YA, new releases, and may even have different box genres available. So, what would make your stand out among the rest? I personally would chose the sub-genre Cozy Mysteries! But not just new releases, because who likes to start in the middle of a series!? Not me! I would make sure that every month had a different 1st Cozy of the Series!

imagesQuestion 2: What would your theme be?

A lot of book boxes have themes for every month. A fantasy theme. A Harry Pottery theme. You name it! What would your theme be every month? Would it be the same or different every month?

I personally would change my theme every month to go with the theme of the cozy mystery! There are so many different types of themes in Cozy Mysteries that one could NEVER get bored. If you ask me! There are desert mysteries, spice mysteries, sewing mysteries, magic mysteries. You name it, there is probably a mystery for it!

the-bookish-box-dec-2015-itemsQuestions 3: What items would your put in your box?

With so many boxes out there and so many bookish goodies the sky is the limit when it comes to filling your box up with amazing goodies! Some companies put book marks, stickers, buttons, and even socks!

I would personally put 3-5 items in the box that revolve around the book its self! If it is a baking book I might put a homemade recipe card in there! I might put a sweet candle that is based off of a scent in the book! Maybe in coffee or tea to enhance the experience!

original_je-ne-sais-quoi-a3-wooden-printQuestion 4: What would set your box out in front of the rest?

You need to have something that would make your box shine brighter then the others! For example, Page Habit has their author’s annotate their books! Which is super cool! Once Upon a Book Box has the customer open up presents at certain pages in the book! I love this idea!

For me, I would want to make my box a retreat. I would want my readers to feel immersed in the story. In the town. Reading is about escaping the world around you sometimes. This box would do that.

The items in the box would be hand picked for the series. It would elevate the senses and make the readers feel as though they are really in the world. Their might be some beautiful hand made yarn for a knitting series with instructions on how to make a scarf. It would be a whole experience!

downloadQuestion 5: Where would you get the goodies for your box?

There are so many creative people in the world that there is an endless supply of artists, crafters, and the like to pull from. I know that I would personally reach out to Etsy creators, creative people in my life, and even makes things at home that would go into the box.

This would be a group project! Something that would be fun and inspiring to others! I think that this would be a lot of fun to create!

sale-tags-free-vector-set_23-2147493679Question 6: What would be the cost and how often?

We all know that book boxes run the gambit of prices. I’ve seen some as low as $10 a month (plus shipping) to $60 for quarterly boxes. What would you want to do for your box?

For me, personally, I would want my box to be between $25-35 a month plus shipping and handling. I want their to be quality products in the boxes. I wouldn’t just pick random things that fall apart when you get them. Or teas that you could buy from Target or Walmart. This would be an Escapism box. A box that should take you out of your world.

Now, I personally have done research, but still not enough to understand how making a box in the real world would cost or how hard it would be for wholesale. I think that I would give my subscribers a choice. They could get a box monthly or quarterly. For the quarterly box I might put two or three cozies in the box with the same theme. It would be more expensive since it would have more goodies!

large_create2copy-copyBONUS Question: Make an example of a book box you would create! 

Take one of your absolute favorite books that you would want to create a box for and do it! Show it off! Take pictures and tag me in them! Make this video and tag me! I want to see all of your imaginations soar!

 

 


And that is the end of the Create Your Own Book Box tag! I hope that you enjoyed this! I had a lot of fun creating it! It has really got me thinking about creating my own Cozy Mystery Box! Wooooo!

A Cozy Rating System

I have recently revamped my Cozy Mystery Rating System. There are just some things that are required when there is a Cozy being read. I have created this Rating System, if you will. It consists of five main categories: Characters, The Whodunit, Relationships, Series, and Punniness. Each of these are rated with 1-4 Cleo The Cat’s, as shown below, and then the total is averaged!

cat

Why did I choose Cleo The Cat, you ask? Well, for one, I do have a cat named Cleo. She is extremely feisty, curious, and highly photogenic. It helps that A LOT of Cozies have fur children in the series. I thought that it would be fun to use Cleo as the mascot.

I mean look at how cute that kitty cat is!!! How can you not want to rate with her?! The only thing that would make her cuter is if she had a bow!

 

Characters is the first category that I rate. If the main protagonist isn’t likable I don’t care how much potential the story has, I can’t get into it. I have to feel close to the characters, like they can be my friends.

The Whodunit is the next category. Was the author actually able to fool me to a reasonable degree on who the antagonist/killer was? If they were they would get 4 Cleo’s. For how many mysteries  have read it is sometimes hard for an author to trick me or lead me astray. I love it when they can!

Relationships is the third category that I rate. This is the relationship or romance that is within the story line. I love the secondary characters just as much or sometimes more than the main character. If there are not well written and drawn out relationships within the series then it is not worth reading to me.

Series is the fourth category. There are two different ways that I rate with this. If it is the first book in the series than I would rate this as whether or not I am going to want to continue with the series. If I am in the middle of the series I will rate it to the degree in which the series is progressing. Is it getting better? Are the characters growing?

Punniness is the last category. I know, I know, Punniness technically isn’t a word. BUT it is a word to me. One of the reasons why I picked up Cozies in the first place are the amazing titles. Curiosity Thrilled the Cat?! Meet Your Baker?! A Killer Read?!? Yes, this is amazing. I am buying a book by its cover and title. You do too. Don’t tell me you don’t. I want to see how fun and funny a series is.

Look below at a visual for the Cozy Mystery Rating System!
