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

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

Posted August 1, 2017 in Bookish Things, Memes // 22 Comments

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. […]

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. LIES! #Ravenclaw4Life I’ve had mixed feelings about this month’s books.  There’ve been a couple of DNFs, but on the other hand there were books that I really loved!  It was a high/low month and nothing inbetween. 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 […]

Book Titles Tag (aka THIS IS ME…sort of)

Book Titles Tag (aka THIS IS ME…sort of)

Em over at the Keystroke Blog tagged me in the Book Titles Tag, and I am super pumped.  I’ve never been tagged in a tag before! AAAHHH! … Overuse of the word “tag” aside, I really am excited. SO I’M GONNA DO THE THING! This tag is simple – pick a book whose title matches the prompt.  Some of these I had so many ideas on!  Others… not so much.  But this was a blast and thanks, Em, for the tag! Title of the Story of Your Life Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh My initial thought for this […]

Sometimes, things just don’t go the way I planned them. Last week, I finished reading The Night Circus.  It was glorious.  I loved it so much that I went and purchased the hardcover copy the next day.  This post is not about The Night Circus but if you want to read all about my love of it, you can do so here. My point is that sometimes you read a book that comes together so perfectly, it makes you go back and reflect on your own work.  The Night Circus did that for me, and I spent several hours that day […]

The Strange Case of the Rejected Lady & the Half-Blood Myth – #IMWAYR

Posted July 17, 2017 in Memes // 3 Comments

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 […]
