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 […]

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 […]

You Took Me By Surprise – Top Ten Tuesday #TTT

Top Ten Tuesdays is hosted by the ladies over on The Broke and the Bookish.  This week’s theme is all about books that you liked either less or more than you thought you were going to!  Check up the other linkups for more great books! For this week’s linkup, I want to focus on books I didn’t think I’d like, let alone love.  As readers, we’re so used to the hype and getting disappointed that it’s awesome when you really end up loving a book! ♦        The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory Before this book, I didn’t read much […]

Literary Love Potion – #TTT

Literary Love Potion – #TTT

Top Ten Tuesdays is hosted by the ladies over on The Broke and the Bookish.  This week’s theme is all about romance tropes and types!  Check up the other linkups for more great books! I’m going to be a rebel this week and I don’t want to talk specifically about romance in the books I read, because if I do, it’s going to end on a lengthly rant on love triangles and I’m already done that at least once. On a related vein, I got thinking about Amortentia, which is a love potion from the Harry Potter series.  The description, from Harry […]

More Muchness – #TTT

More Muchness – #TTT

Top Ten Tuesdays is hosted by the ladies over on The Broke and the Bookish.  This week’s theme is “More/Less” and encourages participants to discuss ten book that they wish had more of less of something in them – writer’s choice!  Check up the other linkups for more great books! Books get a reputation.  The ones on the best seller’s lists… the ones that everyone is reading… it’s easy to get caught up in the hype.  Some books are extraordinary as they seem, and others… just don’t seem to measure up for some people.  And that is okay.  It doesn’t mean they’re bad books.  Usually, […]
