Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far This Year

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic was “Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far This Year.” See below for a favorite quote from each book I selected! Clicking the links will take you to my review! 1) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell- “I don’t just kiss people. Kisses aren’t… just with me.” 2) Texas Gothic by Mary Clement-Moore- “I was generally pro-bat, except when I was trekking through the dark trying not to think about the dire fate of every horror movie character stupid enough to go […]


Sunday Funday: Week in Review [3]

Sunday Funday: Week in Review [3]

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! June 2-June 8, 2014 This week has really brought with it the summer weather, with temperatures being 100+ all weekend. I’ve been trying to take advantage of my local pool to get some reading/tanning done simultaneously (which generally ends up with me glaring at small children who jump into the pool at a proximity which threatens to splash my books). This was my last week of settling in for the summer […]


Top Ten Books That WILL Be in My Beach Bag This Summer

Top Ten Books That WILL Be in My Beach Bag This Summer

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic was “Top Ten Books That Will Be in My Beach Bag This Summer,” and I realized that the list quickly ended up being a round up of my most anticipated books sitting on my TBR list! Too bad I only own four of these titles as of now- the rest may be tricky to get my hands on via the library! (Let’s be honest, one reason I’ve always had a summer job is to buy books!) My list is in […]

Sunday Funday: Week in Review [2]

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! (I know it’s technically Monday today, but this week has been crazy!) Graduation! I did it! I graduated with a double-major B.A. and now am facing the vast world of opportunities that post-grad life has to offer. Moving Along with graduation I’ve moved several hours away from where I’ve been going to school the past four years to start post-grad life, so I’ve been behind on my reading and posting. I’d […]


Top Ten Books that Taught Me About Friendship

Top Ten Books that Taught Me About Friendship

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly feature hosted by the wonderful blog The Broke and The Bookish! This week’s topic is “Top Ten Books About Friendship” and I decided to break my list down into books that taught me about friendship throughout the various stages of growing up. Early Childhood: 1) Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans- Madeline teaches class, tenacity, and most of all how to make and keep friends, whether it be her classmates or Pepito the bad hat next door, and does it all with poise and grace. 2) Corduroy by Don Freeman- Because was there ever such […]


Ten Books I Put Down & Still Need to Finish

Ten Books I Put Down & Still Need to Finish

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme was Top Ten Books You Almost Put Down but Didn’t. I found this topic to be really difficult, as I rarely power through books once I put them down for more than a few days. Therefore, I decided to put my own spin on the topic this week to suit my reading habits and instead compiled Ten Books I Put Down & Still Need (& Want) to Finish. (In No Particular Order) 1) Venom by Fiona Paul- I was […]


Stacking the Shelves [1]

Stacking the Shelves [1]

Today is my first time participating in the weekly meme hosted over at Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers share the books that they’ve added to their shelves this week, whether borrowed, bought, virtual, physical, etc! Borrowed from my Local Library: I started Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour first since I’ve seen so many bloggers freaking out over Morgan Matson’s newest book Second Chance Summer. This is my first read by Matson and I’m finding her style is easy to get into and comfortable, and listening to the narration is like chatting with a good friend. An Abundance of Katherines is my […]


Top Ten Book Covers I’d Frame As Pieces of Art

Top Ten Book Covers I’d Frame As Pieces of Art

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week the topic is Top Ten Book Covers I’d Frame as Pieces of Art. 1) & 2)Cinder and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer- These are actually the Spanish covers for the books, and I absolutely adore them, as they’re delicate and reflect a very dark-fairy-tale-vibe. 3) The Selection by Kiera Cass- Blue is my favorite color, and this series always has the most gorgeous gowns on the cover, and the Tiffany blue is too striking not to love. I wish everything in […]

Sunday Funday: Week in Review [1]

  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! Graduation is looming. In roughly three weeks I will be walking across the stage getting my English B.A. and being thrust into the big kid world without a concrete idea of what I want to do. On the bright side, this week was the awards ceremony for my university’s liberal arts college, and I’m honored to say I won honors in both the English Department and the Religious Studies department […]
