“Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop” Books – #Top5Tuesday

I think everyone has books they devour.  These are the books that light you up inside and even if you have to pause in your reading to go adulting or to school or whatever, your brain is still where with the characters and following the plot down different possible paths and you simply cannot shake yourself from the world. That, mes chers, is what makes an excellent book. These are definitely the types of books that cause reading slumps because when you come out of them, your head is still spinning and life feels meaningless and how can another book ever add up?! […]

Five Amazing Books I Was Lucky Enough Receive as ARCs (& You Should Read!)

Five Amazing Books I Was Lucky Enough Receive as ARCs (& You Should Read!)

One of the coolest things about being a book blogger – even a little one like me – is the opportunity to get great ARCs.  Not all of them are golden, don’t get me wrong.  I’m one of those spontaneous bloggers who has requested several books on instinct only to wish I hadn’t.  I’ve has some doozies. But, on the other hand, I’ve also gotten lucky here and there, and I’ve been fortunate enough to get to read some really awesome books early and promote them on the blog and elsewhere on the interwebs.  Thank you so much to NetGalley and LibraryThing […]

5 Minor Characters that Steal the Show – #Top5Tuesday

5 Minor Characters that Steal the Show – #Top5Tuesday

While a lot of love in the bookish community goes to MCs and mortal enemies, the minor characters don’t get enough love. These are some of my favorite characters.  They make the books shine, and honestly?  Some of them FLAT OUT steal the show.  These underappreciated, underloved, small character are what this week’s Top 5 Tuesday is all about!  Shanah @ The Bionic Bookworm hosts this super fun weekly feature.  This week, she encouraged everyone to pick ten characters, but I’m going to stick with five, because I’m a REBEL. There are much spoilers here, guys. I’m serious.  If you see a […]

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

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

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 pirate […]

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

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

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. Tortall […]
