Because Boys in Books are Better: My Book Boyfriend Sam Roth from Shiver

Ok, so I was hoping to have a review for today but I didn't have time to finish the library book I was working on over the weekend and now it is due today. Sad face!

Anywho, I decided to brighten everyone's Monday with a post about one of my book boyfriends, because who doesn't enjoy looking at pictures of cute guys?? ;] And we all know that boys in books are better.

My Book Boyfriend: Sam Roth

One of my favorite book boyfriends is Sam Roth from Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver trilogy. I absolutely adore Sam's character--he was so sweet and exactly the kind of guy I would love to date. And he's a werewolf! How cool is that??

I picture Sam looking something like Tyler Posey (from MTV's Teen Wolf). I picture Sam as attractive, but more on the cute, gentle side than rugged and hot. Plus Tyler Posey plays werewolf Scott McCall, so he's already got the werewolf part down. I think that Tyler would be PERFECT to play Sam in the upcoming Shiver movie!

Book Boyfriend Profile


Name: Sam Roth
Age: 18
Appearance: Lanky frame, floppy black hair, golden eyes
Species: Werewolf
Interests: Reading, playing guitar, folding paper cranes
Fear: Bathtubs
Favorite Quote: “Grace,” I said, very softly. “Say something.”
Sam,” she said, and I crushed her to me.”
Why I Love Sam: He is sweet, gentle, loving, thoughtful, and compassionate. He is always there for his girl and loves her unconditionally.    

Do you think Tyler Posey makes a good Sam? Who do you picture as Sam?

Happy reading!

Sometimes You Fall Off the Face of the Planet (And It Takes a While to Find Your Way Back)

 A Place With No Gravity

Lately, I have fallen of the face of the planet in regards to my blog. It has been nearly two weeks since my last post. I never intended to take a break from blogging it just...happened.

Sometimes, life gets in the way of things you enjoy, such as reading and writing reviews. I have been extremely distracted lately, and combine that with finals, extra hours at work, and a reading slump and I found myself falling, falling, falling....

Making A U-Turn Back To Normalcy

And I'll admit, I'm a new blogger. I don't have this whole blogging thing down yet. I'm still learning, experimenting, and trying to figure out how to balance blogging with everything else in my life. This is my first blogging slump and it's really frustrating :P

But things should be getting back to normal now. Finals are over (for now), my work schedule is back to the way it was, and distraction shouldn't be a problem anymore. I'm hoping to post a review on Monday and get back to blogging consistently like I was before!

Switching Things Up A Bit

However, I do think I am going to make a few changes. I think I took on a little too much to start off with. So, I think I'm going to get rid of my writing tip feature (for now anyways). I might still do an occasional writing tip here or there, we'll see how it goes.

But I'm just going to focus of book reviews for now, and I will probably post one review a week. I'm still going to try to stick to my Monday, Wednesday, Friday posting schedule. They won't all be reviews but they will be something bookish related.

Anyways, that's all for now. I just wanted to explain what's been up, but I'm getting re-focused and back on track so stay tuned for future bookish awesomeness ;]

Have you ever had a blogging slump? How did you get through it? How do you manage your time in order to post regularly?

Happy reading!
