Top Ten Books of 2016 (So Far)

Top Ten Books of 2016 (So Far)

Yaaaay for pushing favorite books, am I right? The prompt today is actually “Top Ten 2016 Releases So Far,” but I haven’t read enough 2016 releases for that to be a fair game. In fact, I’ve read 11 2016 releases so far…and I’m not about to leave that one extra alone. So I’m going to tell you the top books I’ve read so far in 2016. Sound good? Good.      Me Before You by Jojo Moyes I obviously read this book because of the movie. And I thought it was beautiful. I don’t necessarily agree morally with how it ends, but […]

It’s Not You…It’s Me: Eight Books that I Now Think Differently About

It’s Not You…It’s Me: Eight Books that I Now Think Differently About

Books I Like Less… A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab This book came out right when I was a book-blogging baby, and I just saw so. much. hype for it. And at my young blogging age, I just don’t think I could process it. So I pre-ordered it, read it, and loved it. Wrote a super-hyped review for it. Recommended it to a ton of people. Yet now…I have almost zero inclination to pick up the sequel. I think I just made it out to be more than it actually was for me in my head. And that’s okay! Twilight […]

Ten Websites I Love (That Aren’t About Books…Shocking, I Know)

Ten Websites I Love (That Aren’t About Books…Shocking, I Know)

This prompt is actually kind of hard. Like what? Do things that aren’t bookish? Who do you even think I am? Just kidding. But not really. Anyway. Hopefully I can come up with ten websites that aren’t about books!  I Waste So Much Time This was my very first thought upon seeing this prompt. Iwastesomuchtime.com is basically what the title says…it’s a website to waste time. And it’s been my loyal companion since we got laptops in high school, and they blocked all social media. What else are you going to do during class except find pointless websites like this? (Don’t worry, I got […]

Top Ten Bookworm Delights

Top Ten Bookworm Delights

HIIIIII. I’ve missed all you wonderful bookish people so much. This is my first Top Ten Tuesday since…March 1st. I just checked. ALMOST TWO MONTHS. But I’m here today, smiling and bright-faced and starting to feel recovered after finals last week. So let’s get to it, shall we? Today’s theme is “Top Ten Bookworm Delights”…and upon pondering and deeply considering this (while stroking my chin meaningfully), I couldn’t get one thing out of my head: Yes, that’s right. When I hear “Bookworm Delights,” my first and apparently only thought is the Turkish Delight scene from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. But I pushed […]

Five Books to Read if You Need to Cry

Five Books to Read if You Need to Cry

This is my first TTT in a few weeks…oops! I just got busy with school and work and what-not. But alas! I am back in action. And today’s post is “Ten Books to Read if You Like X”…and so I’m giving you Five Books to Read if You Need to Cry. Because sometimes the heart-ripping-out books are the best ones and because I guess I like to inflict pain on you all? SHARE MY PAIN. And I don’t have ten because I don’t cry easily from books. Anyhoo, here we go:      The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas Oh man, oh man. This […]

Top Ten Books I Just Added to My TBR List

Yaaay for another Top Ten Tuesday and more bookish prompts. Seriously, I have a lot of fun writing these and I hope you have fun reading them. Today’s prompt is Ten Books I Just Added to My TBR List. I didn’t include just the most recent ten because there are some that are too obvious or I just don’t want to talk about them. But these are ten of my recent additions and I’m excited to read them all! The Moth and the Flame by Reneé Ahdieh Reneé just announced this novella and I’m SO excited. I loved The Wrath and […]
