Top Ten 2016 Releases I Meant to Read But Didn’t Get To

This week’s TTT post is all about those coveted 2016 releases that we had every intention of getting to…but for some reason didn’t. This is perfect timing for me, as I am in the process of completely restructuring my Goodreads system and committed to making and sticking to a more regulated TBR schedule in 2017. Below are the ten 2016 releases I most regret not getting to, and I’m aiming to read all of them before 2017 is over! Did any of the above books end up on your list of 2016 reads you didn’t get to? Would you recommend […]

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 […]


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 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 […]

Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books That Recently Came Into Your posession (bought/borrowed/library/etc).

My list will also include recent pre-orders! 1) Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge- I LOVED this book when I got it from the library last summer, so when I saw it on […]


Stacking the Shelves [23]

Stacking the Shelves [23]

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! So this week I ended up with a bit of an unexpected mini haul! My boyfriend found a bag of books at his office abandoned by some co-workers who had attended ALA midwinter. Upon noting that they were YA and that no one else wanted them, he was able to give them to me! I’m super excited about All The Bright Places (the cover under the book jacket is GORGEOUS) […]

Sunday Funday: Week in Review [31]

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 8-14, 2015 Life This week has been exhausting, adjusting to a new full time work schedule and balancing blogging, reading, and other life commitments. BUT there was a light at the end of the tunnel, as on Saturday I attended the Scholastic Warehouse Book Sale! I did an in-depth post of it last year, but essentially it’s when Scholastic opens their warehouses to teachers and educators to come in and […]
