Top 2021 Releases I’m Most Excited For (First Half)

One of my FAVORITE posts to write and read are posts highlighting new upcoming releases! Hopefully 2021 brings us less drama, more consistency with release dates, and overall GREAT books! I’ve rounded up my top 8 releases that are coming out between January-June of 2021 that I am the most excited for! I’m also linking up with Top Ten Tuesday for today’s post! You Have a Match (January) | I don’t think anyone who’s read Tweet Cute can deny that Emma Lord is a wonderful addition to the YA author line up, and I’m thrilled to have an ARC of […]


Top Ten Books of 2020

Top Ten Books of 2020

December is one of my favorite months for blogging because there’s so many fun wrap-up posts to be made and read! Arguably the ~most important~ is the best books of the year lists that everyone comes up with! While this year I didn’t read quite as many books as I had hoped to, I did read many excellent books and the amount of 5 star reads I read this year is over double that of last year! I am thrilled to say that every single book on my “best of” list for 2020 was a strong 5 star rating for […]


TTT: Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of 2020

TTT: Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of 2020

I adore making lists of upcoming releases I’m excited for (and reading those of others!) and I couldn’t resist linking up with Top Ten Tuesday this week to talk about the releases I’m most excited for that are coming out the latter part of this year (and having something positive to look forward to for the rest 2020 is a huge help!) I feel like I say this every year but there are SO many amazing titles coming out, I think the lineup gets better and better each year! If you’re interested in checking out my most anticipated releases from […]


2020 Releases I’m Most Anticipating! (First Half)

2020 Releases I’m Most Anticipating! (First Half)

One of my FAVORITE posts to write and read are posts highlighting new upcoming releases! I know I say this EVERY YEAR but this upcoming year looks like it’s going to have some phenomenal new releases- which is amazing and a testament to how large and diverse the book community is becoming! For 2020, there are actually quite a few adult books that are making my list along with YA, which I hope also helps me keep my reading momentum up, as I find switching up genre and target audience for books can help me from getting into a slump. […]


Girl in the Pages Best of 2019 | A TTT Post

Girl in the Pages Best of 2019 | A TTT Post

I can’t believe another year has gone by and it’s time for another “best of” roundup! This year I decided to focus on my top ten reads of the year, and most of these books have 5 star or strong 4 star ratings. These books aren’t all 5 stars because I wanted to focus on the books that really stuck with me regardless of how I rated them! This year almost all of my favorite reads were from 2019, which is a change from last year where I chose a few more back list titles. I also read a lot […]


2019 Releases On My Radar: Contemporary/Historical Fiction Releases Part 1 (A TTT Post)

2019 Releases On My Radar: Contemporary/Historical Fiction Releases Part 1 (A TTT Post)

One of my FAVORITE posts to write and read are posts highlighting new upcoming releases! I know I say this EVERY YEAR but this upcoming year looks like it’s going to have some phenomenal new releases- which is amazing and a testament to how large and diverse the YA community is becoming! This December I decided to split up my “most anticipated reads” lists into a few separate posts by genre and also by release date, since there are quite a few highly anticipated titles that do not yet have publication dates, covers, etc. Also, I’m trying to include titles […]


Girl in the Pages Best of 2018 (A TTT Post)

Girl in the Pages Best of 2018 (A TTT Post)

I can’t believe another year has gone by and it’s time for another “best of” roundup! This year I decided to focus on my top ten reads of the year, and most of these books have 5 star or strong 4 star ratings. These books aren’t all 5 stars because I wanted to focus on the books that really stuck with me regardless of how I rated them! You’ll notice that the publications dates are a mix of 2018 releases as well as back list publications. Surprisingly enough, only two of the titles from my “most anticipated reads of 2018” […]

2018 Reads on My Radar | A Top Ten Tuesday Post

One of my FAVORITE posts to write and read are posts highlighting new upcoming releases! I feel like I say this every year but 2018 looks like it’s going to have some really phenomenal releases! I’m linking up with Top Ten Tuesday for this week’s prompt “Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward to in 2018,” however I am likely going to be doing a series of posts on 2018 releases on my radar because there are just so many! This week I’m going to be focusing on 2018 releases that are on the top of my priority list that are […]


All I Want for Christmas Is You! | 2017 Edition

All I Want for Christmas Is You! | 2017 Edition

What’s better than finding new books under the Chirstmas tree? For me, books (or gift cards to purchase books) are usually a huge staple in my wish list, although in recent years I’ve really pared down my bookish wishlist in an effort to cultivate a more purposeful home library (and I’m running out of space, let’s be honest). There’s usually not a ton of new releases in December, so Christmas usually serves as a time for me to ask for books I can’t get from the library to try out and didn’t pre-order throughout the year (which is largely how […]


Calm Down 2018, I See You | End of 2017 Priority TBR

Calm Down 2018, I See You | End of 2017 Priority TBR

Last year I did a post rounding up all of the books I really hoped to read/finish before the year came to a close, and I found it a fun way to keep me on track for my TBR, so I decided to go ahead and do it again this year! Writing the post also coincided quite nicely with this week’s TTT prompt over at The Broke and the Bookish (Top Ten Books on My Winter TBR). I’ve divided up the books I have left to read into three main categories, and while there are 11 books in total, I […]
