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 […]

When I was in fifth grade, I started volunteering in the kindergarten after school.  It was about 45 minutes a day, and it was my favorite part of my day.  I did it for four years, and I wish I could have done it through high school.  We helped with snacktime and letter activities, and play time.  Sometimes, this meant building marble shoots with the […]

Top Ten Classics You Should Read Before You Die

Top Ten Classics You Should Read Before You Die

When people ask me what I like to read, my answer is “fantasy, classics, and historical fiction”.  For some reason, the one that folks have the most difficult time wrapping their head around is “classics.”  I can’t imagine why.  These books have laid the groundwork for the novels people devour today, and so many of them still hold their own.  Whether it’s the beauty of the language, or the vivacity of the story, every classic is worth picking up. For the purpose of this list, I’ve excluded all non-fiction as well as the books that will almost definitely be red […]
