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 […]

Top Ten Most Unique Books I’ve Read

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 Most Unique Books I’ve Read. This category crosses quite a few genres for me! Top Ten Most Unique Books I’ve Read : 1) Lolita by Vladamir Nobokov- There’s never been quite as elegant, distracting, and unreliable narrator as Humbert Humbert. 2) Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Lani Taylor- Taylor takes on the most unique and elegant approach to the genre of YA angels-and-demons/paranormal romance I’ve read. She’s unparalleled in world building, and her detail-rich writing takes […]

Top Ten “Gateway” Books/Authors in my Reading Journey

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 “Gateway”Books/Authors in my Reading Journey. These can be books/authors that encouraged me to read as a kid, got me out of a reading slump, introduced me to a new genre, etc! Top Ten Gateway Books/Authors in my Reading Journey: 1) Stravaganza: City of Masks by Mary Hoffman: I literally cannot remember meeting one person who has read this series, and it’s such a shame! I discovered these in late elementary/early middle school and I’ve never […]

Top Ten Tuesday

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 Favorite Books in X (your pick!) Genre. Since this is my first Top Ten Tuesday, I decided to stick with my preferred genre of YA, specifically YA fiction. Top Ten Favorite Books in YA Fiction: 1) Origin (Lux #4) by Jennifer L. Armentrout- This is probably my all time favorite YA paranormal series, and it doesn’t get the hype it deserves. It features aliens, a book blogger, one of my favorite fictional guys, and doesn’t […]
