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 […]


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 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
