Unpopular Bookish Opinions:  In Which I Discuss the Grishaverse, J.K. Rowling, and DNF-ing.

Unpopular Bookish Opinions: In Which I Discuss the Grishaverse, J.K. Rowling, and DNF-ing.

Good morning everyone and welcome to this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post!  I know I haven’t been participating consistently in this meme, but this week, I couldn’t resist!  I think all of us bloggers have some solid opinions about what we do and don’t like, and sometimes it’s difficult to express those opinions for fear of backlash. But I am always one for a salty post… so I’m totally here for this.  Y’all ready?  I’ve got some unpopular bookish opinions for y’all. This may be one of my new favorite GIFs, by the way.  I’ve used it twice in the […]

OMG This Song Book Tag

OMG This Song Book Tag

I would not call myself a music lover.  I listen to stuff all over the place – I listen to Benny Goodman AND I listen to Kesha.  So.  Wide range.  But I don’t have refined tastes.  If I like the lyrics or if the song sets my heart on fire, I’m all about it.  Of course, this means that a lot of my playlists come from the top 40 for various years, then start branching out as, “hey, I like this song, maybe I’ll like more from this artist.” So wait.  Why am I talking about music? Because today, we’re […]

Jurassic Park Book Tag

Jurassic Park Book Tag

You know how I talk about Jurassic Park all the time?  I think the book is super underrated in a world that is obsessed with the film franchise.  Well, imagine my glee when I stumbled across the tag on Port Jericho all about books and Jurassic Park/Jurassic World.  Um, sold! I wasn’t tagged in this one, but I stole it because… how could I not steal it!? The Rules In addition to linking back to the person who tagged you, it would be awesome if you link back to this post. Pick a book that fits each quote theme. Have fun! Tag 3 […]

Series I’ve Given Up On

Series I’ve Given Up On

Some series are more trouble than they’re worth.  Some start off really good, and then you start to hate the world or the characters and you just can’t any more.  Others go on for so gosh darn long that if you have to read another word, you’ll scream.  And others?  Well, on others you tried the first book and it just didn’t suit, and that’s okay. I have soooo many unfinished series, it isn’t even funny. Here’s a few, for fun. Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter (Laurell K. Hamilton) I actually really enjoy the first handful of books in this series.  Okay, […]

March Wrap Up

March Wrap Up

My loves, I am exhausted.  February and March are always difficult months for me, with many thanks to the glorious New England weather.  I can only do so much with grey skies and snowstorms, you know?  This month’s wrap up is going to be brief – mostly just to say hi and let you know what’s been going on in my library these days and see how you all are doing! My haul was pretty low key this month, which is fine!  I didn’t go out and buy any of these except Children of Blood and Bone – all pre-orders, ARCs […]

The NOPE Tag

The NOPE Tag

Today’s book tag was lovingly stolen from Destiny @ Howling Libraries and was originally created by A Booktube Book.  Because sometimes you need to be a bit of a negative muffin about books that just didn’t work out.  Let’s get grumpy, shall we? NOPE. Ending A book ending that made you go NOPE either in denial, rage, or simply because the ending was crappy. Immediately jumping to mind is The Fate of the Tearling by Erika Johansen. Yes, yes, I know, I often recommend the Queen of the Tearling trilogy and have actually listed The Fate of the Tearling on […]
