My Autumn TBR!

My Autumn TBR!

I’m Making a Reading Plan. Usually I’m not one to commit to books, since I’m a mood reader, but this week’s Top Ten Tuesday encouraged us all to talk about our autumn TBR, and heck… I can commit to 10 specific books over three months, right?  I mean, five of these I already know I’m going to be reading ASAP, so what’s so difficult about picking another five?  I CAN DO THIS. Thank you to the ladies at The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this weekly meme.  They always have such great prompts and I really enjoy participating! Without […]

Top Ten Books I Read in 2011 (The Year I Started Keeping Track) – #TTT

Top Ten Books I Read in 2011 (The Year I Started Keeping Track) – #TTT

For a lot of the younger bloggers, this may seem CRAZY, but an Excel spreadsheet used to be the PRIME way to keep track of the books you read.  I never used to keep track at all… I just read.  It wasn’t until 2011, when I was a senior in college (#old) and taking my last handful of writing courses that I was challenged to start keeping track of the books I read.  Actually, it wasn’t a challenge.  One of my writing professors was FLABBERGASTED we hadn’t kept track all this time, and it became an urgent assignment. I’m glad […]

Ten STUGGLE Books that I’m Glad I Read – #TTT

Ten STUGGLE Books that I’m Glad I Read – #TTT

Struggle books.  We all have them, right?  Books we pick up and immediately go “no whyyyyyyy”.  Where the characters is ultimately horrible or there are SO MANY words you feel like your head is going to explode?  For today’s Top Ten Tuesday, the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish encourage us to find those difficult to read books and share them.  For me, I wanted to pick the ones where I got over the hurdle and ended up enjoying them, at least enough to say I was glad to have read them once. I’m going to list these […]

TOTALLY AWESOME Assigned Reading – #TTT

TOTALLY AWESOME Assigned Reading – #TTT

So last week, I ranted like crazy about Dune.  My WORST EVER assigned reading book that, despite being in my genre, I HATED WITH THE PASSION OF BURNING HELLFIRE. I am dramatic. But there are really good books that I was assigned for school reading as well.  ONE OF THEM is even in my Top Ten.  So, without further ado – this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the gorgeous ladies at The Broke and the Bookish. Elementary School I’m going to start at the lower grades and move up, because honestly, there are some SOLID books intended for elementary school […]

Ten Book Recommendations for Slytherins – #TTT

Ten Book Recommendations for Slytherins – #TTT

Top Ten Tuesdays is BACK! The ladies at the Broke and the Bookish have posted the first prompt in months! Raise your hand if you’re excited! The topic this week is “Ten Book Recommendations for _______”.  Immediately, this read in my head as a Hogwarts house, so I’m going with SLYTHERINS*. (Wait, what?  I thought you were a Ravenclaw.  WHY SLYTHERIN?) Okay, well first of all, Slytherins need some love.  They get a pretty bad rap, what with Voldemort and all. SECONDLY. If we get really specific, I’m actually a Slytherclaw.  Oh yes, I who take so much pride in my Ravenclaw […]
