BAM! POW! ZAP! Insta-Reads from Buzzwords – #Top5Tuesdays

Posted August 8, 2017 in Memes // 20 Comments

Good morning my sweet centaurs! I bounced back and forth about whether or not I was going to participate in this week’s top five, as buzzwords aren’t really my thing.  When I think buzzwords, I think phrases like “wildly popular” and “long-anticipated” etc. etc.  Then I decided, ANY word can be a buzz word if it gives me that warm, bumblebee feeling in my bones. As always, Top 5 Tuesdays are hosted by Shanah @ The Bionic Bookworm, and her prompt is: Top 5 buzzwords that make me want to read a book.   Pirate I am a sucker for […]

  After reading The Red Queen, I put off reading The Lady of the Rivers because I was so bored with the Cousins’ War.  Not Gregory’s writing… just the war itself told over again through different eyes.  This was not that part of the story and Jacquetta, surprisingly, is not that kind of girl. Characters ❤︎ I really liked Jacquetta.  She is kinder and more genuine than the other women in Gergory’s novels.  Margaret, on the other hand, has the same childishness as women like Anne Boleyn.  Both women’s stories were interesting.  I especially loved the beginning of the book.  Joan of Arc!  Totally unexpected.

July is gone, and I’m posting this today so I can focus on Harry Potter’s birthday tomorrow.  I swear, I’m not a Harry Potter nerd.

THE JULY HAUL I had a good run at Barnes & Noble earlier in the month, and I’m beginning to clear out my audible credits as well. JULY READS WRITING LIFE In a touch of insanity, I decided to […]

It’s Monday, What are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Date.  It’s a great way to catch up on all the literary ins-and-outs of the previous week, and see what everyone is up to.  Check out this week’s linkup! It’s been a little while since I’ve done one of these!  My entry “Confessions” pretty much sums up my absence this time…. I do apologize, for anyone reading, mais voila!  Here I am again! I’ve actually had a very productive week as I’ve delved back into my audiobooks and finished an ARC I won back in January (*guilt*).  The highlight of my […]
