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

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 […]

Top Ten 2016 Releases I Meant to Read But Didn’t Get To

This week’s TTT post is all about those coveted 2016 releases that we had every intention of getting to…but for some reason didn’t. This is perfect timing for me, as I am in the process of completely restructuring my Goodreads system and committed to making and sticking to a more regulated TBR schedule in 2017. Below are the ten 2016 releases I most regret not getting to, and I’m aiming to read all of them before 2017 is over! Did any of the above books end up on your list of 2016 reads you didn’t get to? Would you recommend […]


Top 2017 Debuts on My Radar

Top 2017 Debuts on My Radar

A few weeks ago I posted the top 2017 releases on my radar. This week’s TTT prompt fit in perfectly with that series, which is highlighting the top ten debuts I’m excited for releasing in the upcoming year. While some of the titles I mentioned in my initial post are debuts, I’ll be focusing on titles I haven’t mentioned previously in this post. Top Ten Tuesday is, as always, hosted by the lovely blog The Broke and the Bookish. The Education of Margot Sanchez by Lilian Rivera | If there’s a book about a Latino family I am there. City […]


Top Ten Disney Villains (AKA the post where I admit how obsessed I am with Disney at Halloween Time)

Top Ten Disney Villains (AKA the post where I admit how obsessed I am with Disney at Halloween Time)

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is all about villains, and since I just got back from visiting Disneyland during Halloweentime this past weekend, I thought it was the perfect time to focus on my favorite Disney baddies! Ursula is the original bad b. I was apparently obsessed with The Little Mermaid movie when I was little and my favorite character was apparently Ursula soooo… I also LOVED The Lion King when I was little (my favorite character was Simba though, so I don’t ALWAYS […]

Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of 2016

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic focuses on releases we are most excited about for the second half of the year. I LOVE TTT prompts like this because it always exposes me to new titles for my TBR (and makes it a million times longer, but who’s complaining?) June Forever regretting that I didn’t get my hands on this at YallWest. August Have I ever read a Colleen Hoover book before? Nope? Does the cover and synopsis already have me convinced I’m going to love […]

Sunday Funday: Where I Bring the Books Back [33]

Sunday Funday is a weekly(ish) post I’ve started to recap the bookish (and sometimes not-so-bookish) happenings in my life the past week! Feel free to participate, just link back! April 11-17, 2016 Life Hello friends! It’s been a while since I did a weekly recap, but this week a lot of bookish things happened so I figured there was no time like the present to revive this feature from the dusty metaphorical shelf it’s been sitting on. This week was my mom’s birthday, so Max and I made the drive up to my parent’s house on Saturday (they live a […]
