Top 5 Book Worlds I Want to Live In – #Top5Tuesday

Top 5 Book Worlds I Want to Live In – #Top5Tuesday

Book Worlds! I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon with the Top 5 weekly feature over on The Bionic Book Worm!  I’ve been seriously missing my Top 10s from Broke & Bookish, so this should tide me over for a while… who knows!  Maybe I’ll stick around! 😉 This week’s topic is: “Top 5 Book Worlds I Want to Live In” At first glance, this is easy.  Then you realize things like:  OBVIOUSLY I DON’T WANT TO LIVE IN PANEM THAT IS A TERRIBLE IDEA. So after much logical thinking, I’ve ruled out ALL the dystopias… and here goes. Tortall […]

A Star Wars Confession – #BookBloggerHop

A Star Wars Confession – #BookBloggerHop

  Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Billy on Ramblings of a Coffee Addict.  Each week, bloggers answer a different question about their own lives or reading habits. I haven’t done one of these in ages so it felt like time! Today’s question is: Do you read tie-in novels to movies or television series? If so, which ones? The answer is yes.  I do.  Or, at least, I have.  I like to think I’m in recovery at this point… but this leads to a guilty confession: At the end of my high school career, I was obsessed with the Star Wars: New Jedi Order […]

So Many Classics! #MailboxMonday

So Many Classics! #MailboxMonday

Mailbox Mondays are hosted by the ladies over on the Mailbox Monday blog.  What finds have you added to your collection this week? GUYS GUYS GUYS. I am so excited because it’s been an ETERNITY since I bought books for myself. Like, real books.  Audible gives me two audiobooks a month, but those cannot grace my glorious bookshelves! AH SO EXCITED. But seriously, the reason I never buy books anymore is, frankly, I AM OUT OF ROOM.  It’s tragic.  I have 2.5 bookcases now in our small apartment, and the third is empty in the office that was supposed to be a […]
