Lia’s Bookish Obsession


ICYMI: I created Fan Art of Zoraida Còrdova’s Labyrinth Lost

Friday, August 19th 2016



Now as some of you may have already notice, I have been drawing some fan art for this book. Honestly, you might be surprised but I actually have a degree in fine arts. Meaning once upon a time, I use to make my living from drawing/creating artwork. One of the issues I had when during my early career is that employers would complain that my figures looked to “ethnic” or that they looked to “animated”. Now that is not the case any more since there are artist that draw in their own unique style of “anime” or ” manga” style. I haven’t draw “fanart” in years, even more shy to showcase my artwork since I don’t have all the latest tech that I would want. I have to admit I don’t like all the artwork I did, since my last car accident (the very same car accident I found out I was pregnant) I felt that my hands and I don’t agree with what my mind is telling it to do. None the less, I found a lot of comfort in Zoraida Còrdova treating my artwork like it is the most amazing pieces of artwork ever. She’s so kind, she’s so thoughtful, and she’s extremely sweet. I’m really hoping to create more artwork for more book series in the future! Yet I’m really happy to spread the word of how amazing, and how connected I feel towards this book and it’s author! So here are a few images of the characters that I hope you will be meeting yourself!

Meet Alex!
A Brujas who will do what ever it takes to rescue her love ones back, even if it makes traveling to the spirit world of Los Lagos!


Meet Nova, a strange young Brujo, whose strange markings, and smart remarks lead more into his mystery than you would expect. Can Alex rely on him, when it comes to helping to rescue her family?
Can I please have some more Nova!


King of the Faun: Agosto
Honestly, I can’t tell you about this guy, but let me just tell you this, I need more of him. Are you reading this Zoraida! I really need more of Him and NOVA PWEASE! Just know within the land of Los Logas, there is a path if taken you’ll end of having dinner with this sexy beast.



Remember all these characters were created by the lovely Zoraida Còrdova wonderful book Labyrinth Lost.


Adieu Juillet Books! You were so good time!

July Rewind

The summer is almost gone! That’s right, the summer is almost over and we in North Dakota are already feeling the temperature change as the North is preparing itself for the fall. Usually I would be crying about the fall season approaching. But I moved off base, which means I live down town Minot, which really means I’m closer to Starbucks! Oh I shall revel in the blessed joys of Fall. I’m coming for you Pumpkin Latte! Oh October I am ready for thee! A few months between me and October, but I am ready now! Honestly Rainbow Rowell said it best in her novel Attachment.

“October, baptize me with leaves! Swaddle me in corduroy and nurse me with split pea soup. October, tuck tiny candy bars in my pockets and carve my smile into a thousand pumpkins. O autumn! O teakettle! O grace!”

Let us give July a proper goodbye.

July was a very busy time period in my personal life. I’m really sad that I did not get a chances to actually review all the books that I read. The reviews that are missing for my July post are:
July WrapUp

Have no fear they will be posted extremely soon! Here are the books that I have read and my review for them posted below! Hopefully August will be kind to me! Or at least help us with our toddler waking up in the middle of the morning raiding our kitchen like some mini shield maiden in training. This cannot be a normal process of growing! Out of all the baby books I’ve read, none to them said to expect your child to wake up in the morning, 3 am in the morning to eat dry cereal and watch infomercials! This is not normal! Let us just hope she let’s herself sleep throughout the night again so I can write more book reviews! Let us all hope!

Happy Reading!
