10 Series Books That are Just as Good (if not BETTER) Than Book One

10 Series Books That are Just as Good (if not BETTER) Than Book One

Posted June 9, 2021 in Bookish Things // 6 Comments

The bookish community is always taking about how they need to finish all the series they’ve started, and I am no exception to this rule.  In fact, over the last couple years my audiobook TBR is mostly made up of sequels and series books (to the extent I can borrow them).  That said, I also quit series sometimes.  Sometimes, you just gotta! Still, there are definitely series I’m glad I’ve stuck out.  We talk a lot about the “Book Two Blues” on this blog, but that’s not always the case.  Sometimes the second book in a duology, trilogy, or series […]

What Do You Meme? – The MEME Book Tag!

Posted August 7, 2020 in Tags // 3 Comments

A couple years ago, Sarah over at Written Word Worlds created her version of the Meme Book Tag, and because memes are super fun, I want to revisit this older tag!  As I mentioned a couple months ago with The Burrito Book Tag, I thought it would be fun to time travel a little and go back and find some of these older book tags I missed, and do them! I know that memes change over time, and some of these may be older, but I’m going with the original memes Sarah used.  If you want to snag the tag […]

Did y’all know that I’m turning 30 this year?! For the record, 30 is a terrifying number.  You can sort of get away with a lot of indecision and childishness in your 20s, which is my zone.  By 30, generally speaking, you’re really expected to have your act together and behave in a socially acceptable way for an adult. I mention all this because I’m twisting today’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt and using an author that is technically YA… but I started reading her books legit 17 years ago, so I feel like I can work with the umbrella of “childhood” […]

Let’s Go On An Adventure: Excellent Epic Fantasy – #TopTenTuesday

I love love LOVE fantasy. I’ve spoken before as to why this genre has a special place in my heart, but like all genres, there are sub-genres to consider!  Over the years, I’ve actually come to love a few different aspects of fantasy… but my first love was epic fantasy.  These intense tales with intricate created worlds, mythical creatures, and magical systems have always tickled my imagination. In celebration of some of these timeless stories, I’d like to share some pretty great epic fantasy stories. The Inheritance Cycle Christopher Paolini While this series has gotten a lot of negative reviews […]

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 […]
