My Ten Favorite Book Subjects (The Data Speaks!)

My Ten Favorite Book Subjects (The Data Speaks!)

Hi all! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about the longest books you’ve ever read.  While this is a great topic, it’s very similar to The Mountain Book Tag which I did earlier this year, so rather than repeat content, I thought I’d bring you a different top ten… one of my very own. This week, I want to talk about my top 10 book tags!  This isn’t in regard to Book Tags in the traditional sense… these are subject tags I use on my LibraryThing account.  For all the books I’ve read, I go through and tag them with […]

Top Ten Books I Read in 2011 (The Year I Started Keeping Track) – #TTT

Top Ten Books I Read in 2011 (The Year I Started Keeping Track) – #TTT

For a lot of the younger bloggers, this may seem CRAZY, but an Excel spreadsheet used to be the PRIME way to keep track of the books you read.  I never used to keep track at all… I just read.  It wasn’t until 2011, when I was a senior in college (#old) and taking my last handful of writing courses that I was challenged to start keeping track of the books I read.  Actually, it wasn’t a challenge.  One of my writing professors was FLABBERGASTED we hadn’t kept track all this time, and it became an urgent assignment. I’m glad […]

You Took Me By Surprise – Top Ten Tuesday #TTT

Top Ten Tuesdays is hosted by the ladies over on The Broke and the Bookish.  This week’s theme is all about books that you liked either less or more than you thought you were going to!  Check up the other linkups for more great books! For this week’s linkup, I want to focus on books I didn’t think I’d like, let alone love.  As readers, we’re so used to the hype and getting disappointed that it’s awesome when you really end up loving a book! ♦        The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory Before this book, I didn’t read much […]

Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz

Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz

  I surprised myself by loving this book. I find that the summary on the back of the book is a little misleading – Blue Bloods follows not only the story of Schuyler Van Allen, but also the stories of Bliss Llewellyn and Madeline Force (“Mimi”). There are enough cliches to make it familiar, but few enough so that the pieces of originality stood out well. At the beginning, I was afraid that De La Cruz was going to dive into intense descriptions of clothes (hey-lo upper class, teenage NYC!), but she only did so when was appropriate, and in […]
