That Monsters Can Be Defeated | RoAnna Sylver Guest Post

guest postttThat Monsters Can Be Defeated | written by RoAnna Sylver

For the month of October I’m hosting Spooks and Tea where we aim to consume as much horror, or spooky, books as possible. This also fits in nicely with blogoween!

I also wanted to do something a little different and fun this year so I reached out to a few authors to see if any would be interested in taking part whether that be through guest posts or Q&A’s.

RoAnna was super lovely and agreed to write a guest post! I gave her free range on what she’d like to write about; whether it be horror recommendations, talking about favourite spooky creatures or something totally different.

In the end she decided to write about what Good Horror is supposed to be vs when it becomes Bad Horror.

Loving the monsters always ends badly for the human

Blogoween bloodyLoving the monsters always ends badly for the human | #Blogoween
We’re back again, its day two of me hosting Blogoween and today I’m talking about my favourite creatures ever!

VAMPIRES

From what I can remember my love for Vampires started with an amazing movie called The Little Vampire, though it is possible that my love existed prior to this movie, its just this movie is a solid point in my childhood where I made the decision that I would become a vampire…

Whilst I’m older now and the world tells me it is not physically possible to become a bloodsucking immortal, if I had the chance I wouldn’t say no.

Keep reading to find out about some of my favourite Vampires and why its such a long title.

Why these books deserve their own Funko Pops | written by Anthony from Keep Reading Forward.

As you may know I’m away for a long weekend as a birthday treat so I very kindly asked the #NewBloggers group if anyone would like to guest post whilst I was gone.

One of my BooksandTea moderators – Anthony – said he’d love to take part but wasn’t sure on the topic. I can’t think of Anthony without thinking about his love for Funkos so I suggested this topic which he loved.

Keep reading to find out which books he thinks should have Funko Pops!

Dear YALC | A discussion on accessability

So its been a hot minute since I posted my main YALC Wrap Up and Haul post which I made sure to only focus on the negatives and I mentioned within it how there would be a follow up.

It is finally time for said follow up and I hope I didn’t leave it too long. My anger and frustration may not be as strong as it was that weekend, but its still there and I’m definitely not the only one.

YALC | My potential TBR

I put a poll up on twitter regarding what post y’all wanted to see first and this won.

As you can see I titled it “potential TBR” and I say this due to the fact I’ve thrown together all the books I own that I could take to be signed but I’m not 100% sold on some of them as they may not be my cuppa tea. Those I’m not completely sure on I’ll only take if I have the bag room, I don’t wanna do what I did last year and completely ruin my back.

Games&Dev | Discord chat for gamers
Hopefully by now Discord is not a new thing for my readers as I’ve spoken about this super handy app before as I host my book club on it. But I’m here today to talk about a server that I somewhat help mod – Gams&Dev which is run by Akselmo.

Games&Dev is a small community for people who like playing and/or making video games. Recently we also added in a section for those who blog about video games too! So please click here to join if any of this sounds of interest to you – or keep reading to know more.

Goodreads: Organising your shelves
It’s no surprise to anyone that I run a book club. It’s because of this that I find myself every now and then introducing someone to the (mostly) wonderful website that is Goodreads.

So if you’re new to Goodreads or simply just never experimented with your shelves then this post is for you.
