#AtoZChallenge 2021 April Blogging from A to Z Challenge letter B

An alphabet of J's favorite blogs

B is for Fantasy Book Café | Reviews of Fantasy and Science Fiction Books
I love THIS blog because:

  • There's an alphabetical index of all the books 
  • 🍵☕🐉🧝🧙  How cool would an actual fantasy book cafe be? Coffee in a dungeon with dragon-roasted beans.   

#atozchallenge Usborne books for Children

“Boy” is a story of a deaf child who lived in silence. Boy couldn’t hear the fighting of the king’s battles around him, but he could see the fear around him... and how everyone would be much happier without it. Diversity and the need for communication, all kinds of communication, is a strong theme within this heartwarming tale. Ideal for ages 4-8.

  1. I have not been to the blog, or read the books. I am adding Boy and Black & White to my list, though! Nonfiction vampire...I actually love when awesome fantasy topics are written as if they were nonfiction. Could be interesting!

  2. Nonfiction vampire - Im oping you don't have proof that vampires actually exist!!

  3. Love that Being Human is listed as nonfiction! I loved the book, too.

  4. I haven't been to that blog, or read the books. Vampire non-fiction? I don't think so. Or, maybe. I've read about Vlad III, and Elizabeth Bathory.

  5. I haven't known about the Fantasy Book Cafe. Now I do. I'm going to visit it for sure, as fantasy is my favorite genre.

  6. The Fantasy Book Cafe blog is well laid out, and the book reviews exceptionally thorough - from which I should take a lesson.
    (theme: Novel Research - novel as in different/interesting/unusual)

  7. I haven't visited most of these other blogs (yet) but I may, now.

    Hm. Thoughts on "vampire nonfiction" eh? I'm still laughing over the suggested Google search autocomplete I got, once, starting "Vampire..." and got "Vampire facts."

    OK, I get it - maybe "vampire lore" would have been better, but it had me wondering how many people typed into the little box, "vampire facts"? That's easy: "They don't exist." Despite which, I do enjoy a good vampire story. But I'd have trouble with "Being Human" due to the title - like one reader said, "I expected it to be like the TV series." Which is unfair of us, and you cannot copyright a title, but you CAN do your research, and the series was aired at least as far back as 2010 or 2011.

    I do hope you'll drop by my blog, one day - maybe you'll find a new favorite. It's All a Matter of Perspective.

    1. The book and the tv show both came out in 2011. Both take several months of prep before the public has access.

  8. Best Way to Get Your Ex Lover Back Fast Even If Your Situation Seems Hopeless!. I just got my husband back through the help of genuine love spell caster PRIEST OSAS.

    Hello respective viewers, I'm lawrence foreign  from Alabama, USA. My husband left me for another woman after 13 years of marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second child. I wanted him back. I did everything within my power to bring him back home, but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him and also for the sake of our child and unborn baby. I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to a very close friend of mine and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a love spell to bring him back, i have never done this before because I don't believe in things like this, but I had no choice than to give it a try. I took out time to search more about spell casters then I came across an article where a lot of people talked about this particular spell caster called PRIEST OSAS who has helped a lot of them save their broken marriages and relationships. I was so amazed with the good reviews I saw about him so I got the courage to place a contact through to him. I messaged PRIEST OSAS, and told him my whole situation and he assured me there was no problem and that everything was gonna be okay before 48 hours. He casted the spell and surprisingly 48 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened. He said he was on his way home and he wanted me to accept him back home. He said he loved and missed me so much. I was so happy, surprisingly a few mins later he arrived and we were both happy and started to live together again. That was how we started living together happily again. Thanks to PRIEST OSAS . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact PRIEST OSAS for help now.. Here is his contact.. Email him @ Or add him up on Whatsapp @ +2348151243832

  9. Someone needs better spam protection. ;)

  10. I am laughing my butt off at Being Human in a nonfiction category. I have no idea how that happened. I've contacted Amazon to get it fixed though.

  11. Bookmarked Fantasy Book Cafe - looks highly informative. Thanks for the shout. I also highly recommend Being Human - Patricia is super talented.

  12. Coffee in a dungeon with dragon-roasted beans sounds like a fun time! I would love to be able to read "Boy" and have added it to my Goodreads TBR. Vampire nonfiction -- sounds like a great category!

  13. Vampire nonfiction could work maybe History of Vampire in Society, culture. Proofing they exist might be hard but nonfiction work on why people belief in them
