10 Most Read Blog Posts of the First Half of 2018

It’s early July, half of 2018 has gone and I honestly don’t know where. I feel like it’s still April and May is just approaching. But nope: we are on month seven, so I’m going to share with you what the most read posts were for the first six months of this year, starting with the least read of them, which is…

NUMBER 10

Addict - The Cassie Tam Files, Book 1 by Matt Doyle

Title: Interview with Matt Doyle (Author of The Cassie Tam Files)

Type of post: Author interview

About: The Cassie Tam Files is a LGBT Sci-Fi Mystery series and I not only had the pleasure to review Book 1 – Addict, but to also interview the author. In this interview, he gives one of the best pieces of advice for authors that I’ve read.

NUMBER 9

Wendy Rathbone

Title: Author Interview with Wendy Rathbone (The Fantastic Immortals series)

Type of post: Author interview

About: Another interview (obviously) and again with an author of LGBT works. I have reviewed several of Wendy’s books and two of those reviews are making an appearance on this list. As a matter of fact…

NUMBER 8

Prey by Wendy Rathbone

Title: What I Think about Prey by Wendy Rathbone

Type of post: Book review

About: This is my review of Prey – a standalone LGBT Sci-Fi Gay Romance with a hell of a lot of mature content, that I quite enjoyed. One of the main characters is an ex-slave, so read at your own discretion.

NUMBER 7

Wattys 2018

Title: Wattys 2018 Announcement

Type of post: Announcements/News

About: I’m really not surprised that this post made it onto the list, even though it’s relatively new (June 01), and therefore had less time to garner reads. In it, I tell you how you could enter the Wattys (an online story contest) and answer some questions you might have about them.

NUMBER 6

Ganymede Abducted by the Gods - Fantastic Immortals, Book 1 by Wendy Rathbone

Title: What I Think about Ganymede: Abducted by the Gods by Wendy Rathbone

Type of post: Book review

About: And we are back to Wendy. This time I’ve reviewed the first book in her Fantastic Immortals – a Fantasy LGBT Romance series about Greek Gods. I’ve also reviewed Book 2 – Zeus: Conquering His Heart (by the way, these books aren’t in chronological order and Zeus predates Ganymede), and while we are on the topic of Wendy’s books: I’ve also given my opinion on her The Imposter Prince – The Imposter Series, Book 1 (LGBT, Fantasy, captivity, war, mature content).

NUMBER 5

A Little Bit of Everything Wattpad & Writing Tips

Title: A Little Bit of Everything: Wattpad & Writing Tips

Type of post: Educational

About: This is a post I originally wrote for on online event called The Wattpad Block Party which is hosted twice a year by USA Today bestselling author Kelly Anne Blount. The post is no longer available on Wattpad (where the event is hosted), so I decided to upload it here. It has book-related advice on things like cover, titles and blurbs, as well as general writing tips and some bits especially for those of you who have a Wattpad account or are thinking of starting one. The tips are separated in categories, so it will be easy for you to find what you are interested in.

NUMBER 4

T.E. Mark - author of AHNN

Title: Author Interview with T.E. Mark (AHNN)

Type of post: Author interview

About: The last interview we’ll see on this list and it’s with T.E. Mark, author of Sci-Fi.

And now, let’s head to The Big 3.

NUMBER 3

Dark of Night - Beautiful Monsters Ashwood Red, Book 1 by Jex Lane

Title: What I Think about Dark of Night by Jex Lane

Type of post: Book review

About: Dark of Night is the first book in Jex’s Ashwood Red series, which takes place in the world of her Beautiful Monsters. Yes, this is a spin-off series. The first book is a Fantasy Romance between a straight couple, something I feel I should mention, given the fact that the BeMo novels feature a main character who gets it on with both males and females. And speaking of BeMo: I’ve reviewed all the novels that have come out so far, plus one short story that can be read as a standalone and you can get for free, if you subscribe to Jex’s newsletter (an action that won’t clutter your email box as she only sends emails when there’s a new release or a promotion coming up). Anyway, you can read my reviews here:

  • Captive – Beautiful Monsters, Book 1 (LGBT Fantasy, war, vampires, incubi/succubi)
  • Sire – Beautiful Monsters, Book 2 (LGBT Fantasy, war, vampires, incubi/succubi, Gods)
  • Broken – Beautiful Monsters, Book 3 (LGBT Fantasy, war, vampires, incubi/succubi, Gods, demons, captivity)
  • Pearl and the Dread King – a Beautiful Monsters short story (Fantasy M/F Romance)

NUMBER 2

8 Books I Read and Fell in Love with in 2017

Title: 8 Books I Read and Fell in Love with in 2017

Type of post: Lists

About: I have to admit that I’m surprised this post made it to the list, especially at #2. I mean, I LOVE reading other people’s lists about their favorite/least favorite books, but I didn’t expect so many of you felt the same way. However, my list about the books I read (but not necessarily came out) in 2017 being here isn’t as surprising as…

NUMBER 1

13 Books I_m Looking Forward to Reading in 2018

Title: 13 Books I’m Looking Forward to Reading in 2018

Type of post: Lists

About: This is it. It’s final. You like book lists and I should make more of them. As for this particular list: it features eight Fiction novels, three writing guides, and two graphic novels.

So, did you miss any of the Top 10 posts? If so, have fun catching up!
