These Books Were a Bad Plan… Why Did I Read Them?!

These Books Were a Bad Plan… Why Did I Read Them?!

Posted January 30, 2018 in Memes // 14 Comments

Over the years, I’ve read a lot of books.  I’ve gone through a lot of phases.  Not all of these books are gems.  That isn’t to say that they are the worst books in the world – in fact, for the purposes of this list, I’m going with books that aren’t necessarily bad books – but man, oh man… they were not good fits for me.  Looking back on these, I wouldn’t pick these up again.  The glitz and glamour is gone! Size 12 Is Not Fat by Meg Cabot This book was the most frustrating read because despite the title, […]

Great Books I Don’t Remember

Great Books I Don’t Remember

Posted January 23, 2018 in Memes // 18 Comments

I’ve been a bookworm for as long as I can remember.  Some of my earliest memories are reading books – to myself, with my parents, with my peers.  “Go out to play!” my parents said. “Ugh,” said I, whilst grabbing a book to read. The problem with always having my head stuck in a book is that I’ve forgotten a lot of them.  Blogging and Goodreads?  They help resurrect my memories of a particular novel.  Unfortunately, in the time before I started tracking my reading and in the times I have lapsed… the books have fluttered out of my mind.  Even […]

I Wish There Were More _______ In Books

I Wish There Were More _______ In Books

Posted January 16, 2018 in Memes // 6 Comments

There are a few kinds of books I get passionate about. Books with really amazing, beautiful writing. Books with incredible, loveable/hateable characters. Books I absolutely cannot predict what is this madness. Books with amazing relationship dynamics that make my heart flutter. I also think that we all have a few things that we love dearly that we wish we could find more of in books.  Things that we wish were written about a little more!  I have a bunch, and I’m actively seeking more so if you know any, please let me know in the comments so I can add […]

Books I Meant to Read in 2017 but Hahaha NOPE.

Aaaaah guys.  While 2017 was the best ever reading year for me (thank you audiobooks, I love you), I missed out on so many good, hype-ish things.  Things people loved.  Things I know I would love.  The books people started talking about last year and the books people have been talking about for ages. I want to read them all.  Can I just, like, clone myself and and have clone!me go to work and be social and whatnot while real!me drinks tea and reads books all day?  That’s a sustainable lifestyle, right? I’m telling myself that this year, I’ll get […]

My Best of the Best, Creme de la Creme Reads of 2017

My Best of the Best, Creme de la Creme Reads of 2017

Posted December 12, 2017 in Bookish Things, Memes // 34 Comments

This is the inevitable post of the year, when we have to go through our amazing list of wonderful reads and pick favorites.  Guys, this is the worst.  It is hard.  There are so many good books that came out this year, but there are also a lot of great books that I read that came out last year.  Or two years ago.  Or ten years ago. Rather than just feature 2017 books, I’ve chosen to drive myself crazy and feature the reads that met and exceeded expectations this year.  The ones that wrapped me up in their worlds and wouldn’t let […]
