This week you could choose any topic that completed the sentence: “Top Ten Books That Feature Characters Who ____.” I’ve read a LOT of fantastic books lately with protagonists who really, deeply challenge their society’s structure, and grapple with the shades of grey between what’s right and wrong, what’s tradition vs oppression, etc. I love reading about characters who struggle with their society in a real and […]

April 20-26, 2015 Life Well obviously this week has been full of BIG CHANGES, namely that I moved from WordPress.com to WordPress.org! I’m going to do an in-depth post about my transition once I finally get all the bugs worked, and if you have any questions about how my move went feel free to ask me in the comments or email me! Pretty much everything went smoothly with the move. All […]

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! Well, it’s about 4am my time and I’ve been up all night finishing The Royal Wedding by Meg Cabot (it’s SO good you guys), so I figured why not get my STS post up while I’m at it? Bought: I was recommended this after finishing The Wrong Side of Right which I adored for it’s political aspects (I hear the mom’s a senator in this one). I also got it […]

As usual, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic is “Top Ten Characters You Want To Check in With.” 1) Teddy Lupin from Harry Potter– I know wanting to check in with the second generation of Harry Potter characters will probably be on everyone’s list today, but I couldn’t help myself!

Top Ten Books From My Childhood I’d Like to Revisit

As usual, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic was Top Ten Books From Your Childhood/Teen Years You’d like to revisit. I decided to split my list in half between favorite childhood picture books and middle grade books! Childhood: 1) Madeline– My absolute favorite childhood book, Madeline was my childhood role model. When I was eight I even got to “meet” Madeline at a Nordstrom Madeline brunch, and I had a lifesize Madeline doll! 2) Chicka Chicka Boom Boom– A close runner up for my favorite childhood book, my copy […]

This week has kind of been like that. […]
