Halloween Book Tags

It’s Halloween!! Wooo…woooo…ooooo…ooo…o. Out of breath so—

Nightmare Before Christmas gif

Well, I was tagged to do two different Halloween book tags so I decided to combine them into one post. Aren’t I smart? I think so. 😀 Lol. This works out great for me because this post will be the only Halloween-related thing I do today other than watch a few scary movies. So let’s hop to them.

Wishes for My TBR Pile #9: Fantasy and Folklore

Wishes for My TBR Pile is a monthly post where I list and sometimes discuss the books I’ve discovered and would like to get.

Note: Since changing my web address, I realized that my posts weren’t showing in Reader. I had to re-add myself to fix that glitch so if you use Reader, please let me know if you’re able to see my posts in there. I submitted a query in the WordPress forum but haven’t received any replies on how to fix it.

Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho (September 1, 2015)

At his wit’s end, Zacharias Wythe, freed slave, eminently proficient magician, and Sorcerer Royal of the Unnatural Philosophers—one of the most respected organizations throughout all of Britain—ventures to the border of Fairyland to discover why England’s magical stocks are drying up.

But when his adventure brings him in contact with a most unusual comrade, a woman with immense power and an unfathomable gift, he sets on a path which will alter the nature of sorcery in all of Britain—and the world at large… (Goodreads)

I first watched a review of this book in a YouTube video but after reading a review over at Lady Geek Girl and Friends, I added it to my TBR list. The story seems to be a hit or miss with readers but I’d like to read it and see for myself. It explores a variety of issues that I’m curious about.

Top Ten Tuesday #15: Puurfect for Halloween

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic:

Halloween-themed freebie

I couldn’t think of a theme more specific than Halloween so the following books are fitting for this time of year. These aren’t scare-your-pants-off scary, but they are unsettling.

Blog Update: New Web Address

Welcome, welcome to the new address! 😀

Hopefully you found me okay. I know my directions were a bit off and you probably got lost at the fourth left turn — I always forget that one! — but here you are, with me, at zezeewithbooks.wordpress.com. 🙂

If not, well, that sucks, and I hope we get to meet again soon on the Web. Of course, if I’ve misled you somehow, then you’re unable to read this message, which probably makes it pointless, but maybe you’ll see this post when you find me again and know that I thought you…. I think I’m rambling.

Well, to all of you who are still with me, YEAHIEE!! I’m glad this went smoothly and I’m so grateful that KokkieH stopped by to give me some advice. I was so worried that I would do something wrong but his advice put me at ease.

The plan was to do the web-address switch at midnight on October 25. Unfortunately, I was sick with a migraine and slept through my deadline. But here I am, back to my semi-perky self with a new web address and ready to blog some more.

Hope you’re all with me and if not, see you soon.

Blog Update: Web Address Change Tonight

Hi there.

It’s me again, Zezee, with the same old news that I plan to update my web address. When will this occur? Tonight. Midnight. The hour of magical happenings.

I will change the address from zezeewithbooks.wordpress.com to zezeewithbooks.wordpress.com, or something of the sort. The zezee112 account will become inactive so I guess all previous links to my blog will be defunct.

But never fear. If you need to find me and you can’t recall or locate the web address, there is Google. Just google Zezee with Books and my blog should pop up, otherwise I’m screwed. Just remember, it’s one E between the zees and two E’s after. I think that line would be great in a rhyme.

Can’t say I’m not anxious, though. I keep worrying that this will all go wrong and I’ll be left with a blog without an address, detached and floating untethered in the world wide web. Is that even possible? Anyways, that’s my greatest fear at the moment.

Anyways, until next time.

P.S.: See you at the new address. Remember, midnight.

Book Haul #12: The Year of Books—2015

I did a book haul about the same time last month but here I am again with another, a larger one at that. I need to exercise some self-control.

Before I get to the book haul, I wanted to remind you all that I intend to change my web address this weekend from zezeewithbooks.wordpress.com to zezeewithbooks.wordpress.com, or something similar. I will do so October 25. I’ll post another notice post tomorrow.

Anyways, the book haul. The links are to Goodreads, unless otherwise stated.
