Top 5 Wednesday – Problematic Faves

Happy Hump Day – it’s Top 5 Wednesday! As a reminder, Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly roundup of cool/fun bookish things that is hosted by Sam over at Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. You can visit the Goodreads group for topics (and such, as Sam always says). I’ve talked about some of my problematic faves before, but this post brought some things to light for me and made me think about the trash that I seem to like. Ha. I can’t help it – I know that some of these are inherently problematic, and while that doesn’t make it better, I at least *say* these things when I recommend the books.

Happy Hump Day – it’s Top 5 Wednesday! As a reminder, Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly roundup of cool/fun bookish things that is hosted by Sam over at Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube.

Top 5 Wednesday – Non-Horror Books that Scared Me

Happy Hump Day – it’s Top 5 Wednesday! As a reminder, Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly roundup of cool/fun bookish things that is hosted by Sam over at Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. You can visit the Goodreads group for topics (and such, as Sam always says).
