Top 10 Tuesday – Favorite Villains (Happy Halloween!)

Hey hey, it’s Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is run by The Broke and the Bookish, and I’ve loved making it a regular post on this blog! This week, we’re talking about our favorite villains, which was honestly a little bit difficult for me! I read so much contemporary and romance and contemporary romance that the “villains” aren’t always established people, if that makes any sense. But no matter – I came up with ten and I’m excited to talk about them! Let’s jump right into this fun Halloween list!Read More »

Top 5 Wednesday – Classes Based on Book Characters

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). This topic was FUN. I love school, love learning things, so once I understood this topic, I was ALL IN. I don’t think I need much other prelude – I’ll just get right into it.Read More »

Top 10 Tuesday – Under-the-Radar Books

Hey hey, it’s Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is run by The Broke and the Bookish, and I’ve been participating since the beginning of July or so – I’m happy that it’s becoming a regular weekly post on this here blog. This week is about under-the-radar books in a certain genre, but I’m opening up this topic a little and listing ten books that have gone under the radar in general. My definition for this is a bit broad in itself – until the last year, I didn’t know what the “radar” was, per se, so going under it is just books that no one I know has read or heard of. So anyway – blah! Let’s just get started.Read More »

(Belated) ARC Review – Sovereign by April Daniels

Oh my goodness, I was so excited to get approved for this book. I LOVED the first book in the series, Dreadnought, and just couldn’t wait to get to this one. But you know how sometimes, you put off the things that you’re excited about because you don’t want them to end? That’s what happened here. I think I was approved back in April? I don’t know, I’ve had Sovereign sitting on my Kindle for months, and I didn’t want it to end. But I’m so glad I finally read the book, because it was SO GOOD, just what I had hoped for and more.

There will be spoilers for Dreadnought in this review. You can read my review for that here.Read More »

Top 10 Tuesday – Books I Would Assign If I Was a College English Professor

Hey hey, it’s Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is run by The Broke and the Bookish, and I’ve been participating since the beginning of July or so – I’m happy that it’s becoming a regular weekly post on this here blog. This week is another fairly open-ended topic – something related to back-to-school. There have been many times in my life since I left college where I thought being an English professor would be fun, and I’m going to play that game now. Since I have 10 books on this list, we’re going to pretend it’s a full-year class, a part 1 in the fall and a part 2 in the spring, because 10 books is a lot for a single semester. My imaginary class is called Brave Women in Books, and I’m super excited about it. So! Without further ado!Read More »
