Anne of Green Gables Book Tag

Anne of Green Gables Book Tag

I saw this tag created by Pages Unbound, and I knew that I had to do it. You can see the original post here. I read Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery for the first time last fall when I had to read a YA book that was published before 1920 for my YA literature class. I immediately fell in love with Anne. She’s easily the cutest, most dramatic, and loveliest little girl. She sees the world in such a beautiful light, and I aspire to be like that someday. I aspire to see the good in everybody from the get-go. I […]

Ten Books That’ve Been Sitting on My Shelf for a Loooooong Time

Ten Books That’ve Been Sitting on My Shelf for a Loooooong Time

Today’s prompt is “Ten Books That’ve Been Sitting On Your Shelf Since Before You Were Blogging.” Because all of my physical books that were from before blogging are on my shelf at home, I’m just going to refer to books on Goodreads that’ve been on my TBR since before blogging.

Unscripted Joss Byrd: An ARC Review

Unscripted Joss Byrd: An ARC Review

I received the ARC of Unscripted Joss Byrd through the ARC Adoption program that Emma from Miss Print has set up. I think this is my second or third ARC I’ve received from her, and I have another that I have to read! It’s a great program for those that don’t get sent many physical ARCs from publishers. She sends them with the guarantee of a review from you within a month of publication. Anyway, let’s get started, shall we? This book is about Joss, a teenage movie star, and it follows her filming an indie movie in, I think, Florida. What was cool […]

Top Books Set in the Midwest

Top Books Set in the Midwest

If you didn’t know, I’m a Midwest girl through and through. I was born in Indiana, and then we moved to Ohio, and then we moved to Wisconsin, and then we moved back to Indiana. So, like I said, very Midwest. I live in Utah now (very not Midwest), but I still love me some Midwest setting. Especially in YA novels. And I’ve actually been noticing an increase in the amount of Midwest settings in YA novels lately! Or maybe I’m just imagining that, I don’t know. But anyway, today’s TTT prompt is Top Ten Books in X Setting, so I chose Midwest! (Who would’ve guessed, […]
