Stacking the Shelves [25]

Stacking the Shelves [25]

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers share the books that they’ve added to their shelves this week, whether borrowed, bought, virtual, physical, etc! This is my first stacking the shelves since June. Geez! Life has really gotten in the way of my STS posts (which I actually talked about this week on the blog). I have definitely acquired a LOT of books since last June, and with so many great 2016 releases (and a job which equals money to buy books with!) I am hoping to be able to post more STS posts […]


Top Ten Books on My Spring TBR

Top Ten Books on My Spring TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic focuses on one’s Spring TBR, however I recently talked about all of the new releases I’m anticipating through June. This week I’m going to focus on the books I aim to read this spring aside from all of the highly hyped, shiny new releases I have my eye on. Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas I literally just started this book right after finishing HOF because I need more Aelin and Rowan in my life. The Assassin’s Blade […]

Top Ten Characters Everyone Loves Who I Just Don’t Get

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 Characters Everyone Loves Who You Just Don’t Get. I have a feeling I’m going to create a disturbance with some of my picks (and I will be the first to admit many may be influenced by my salty attitude toward certain popular book ships). Time to stir up some trouble! Ron Weasley from Harry Potter: I’m sorry, I have never liked Ron from Day 1. He rivals Percy for being my least favorite Weasley. I […]

Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is “Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added to My TBR.” My list this week is a mixture of backlist books, recent releases, and upcoming releases in 2016. These aren’t on my physical-I-already own-TBR, but rather they are new additions to my Goodreads TBR over the past month or so. In no particular order: Not Yet Released: The Loose Ends List by Carrie Firestone The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout The Girl Who Fell by Shannon M. Parker The […]

Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For the First Half of 2016

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is looking ahead to my most coveted releases of within the first 6 months of 2016. I love TTT topics like this because I gather so many ideas (and add so much to my TBR!) from reading what others are excited about! In order of release month, here are my most anticipated reads being released in the first half of 2016! Passenger by Alexandra Bracken- January I cannot even with how excited I am for this one. Max pre-ordered it […]

Christmas (Book) Haul and Recap 2015!

Merry Christmas, blogosphere! This holiday season definitely snuck up on me, and while it was a crazy rush Christmas shopping and prepping for the holiday, I managed to finish all of the essentials! I received some wonderful gifts (and books!) this year and thought I would share them here! Max and I started the morning at our place with our personal tree and gift exchange. As it’s our first full size tree together (and not one of the mini-trees used in our college dorms and previous apartments) the decorations are a little sparse, but we do love it! One of […]

Top Ten Books I Read in 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is perhaps the most important of the year, choosing 10 of the 70 books I’ve read for the illustrious category of “best books I’ve read in 2015.” I’ve decided to not only list the ten best books I’ve read this year (in no particular order), but give them superlatives as a nod to their greatness. Most likely to encourage you to be yourself: Most nostalgia-inducing: Most worthy of the hype: Most likely to feed your royal addiction: Most likely to […]

Top Ten New to Me Favorite Authors I Read in 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is focusing on the top ten favorite authors that are new to YOU, no matter how long they’ve been on the literary scene. I found that this year I read fewer books by “new to me” authors than last year, as I really focused on the authors who had impressed me during my first year of blogging. In backwards chronological order (starting with the most recent new to me authors I’ve enjoyed all the way back until January 2015), here […]

Top Ten Characters Who Should Totally Throw A Halloween Party

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. I really enjoyed making my Halloween list for TTT last year (Top Ten Characters I’d Want to Be For Halloween) and I wanted to think of a fresh new spin on it, as Halloween’s one of my favorite seasons. This year I decided to reflect upon which characters could throw an awesome Halloween party (which I’d be inviting myself to, of course). Fred and George Weasley from Harry Potter: How awesome would a Halloween party in Fred and George’s joke shop be? Wizards […]

Sunday Funday: Week in Review [32]

Life Hello! Remember me? Where have I been? Everywhere, it seems, except for the book blogging world for the past two weeks, tragically. I’m in the midst of the busiest time of year at my work, I just had a major move into a new apartment, and I also just got back from a week long trip to DISNEYWORLD. So while I haven’t had too much time to be in the blogosphere, I really can’t complain because I’ve been lucky enough to have SO many other adventures in the meantime. I’m considering doing a recap on the blog of my […]
