Top 10 Tuesday – New-To-Me Authors I Read in 2017

Hey hey, it’s Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now run by That Artsy Reader Girl! Yay! I’ve loved making it a (semi) regular post on this blog! This week, I’m talking about new-to-me authors that I read and loved in 2017, and let me tell you – this list was hard to narrow down. I read so many good books in 2017, and I can’t wait to read even more in 2018. Let’s get this party started – yay authors!Read More »

Book Review – Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

We maaaaaaade it to the end of the Grisha trilogy. I stayed up super late to finish this book while on vacation, and I still feel fairly wrecked. I was so happy to hear that there were more books in the universe, but none of them really feature Alina or Mal, and that makes me sad. So many feelings were had. So many. In any case, without further ado, here we go on the last of the messy adventures in the Grishaverse for a while!

Book Review – Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

I’ve been wanting to write up this review for months, but I legitimately don’t know how. So I thought I’d throw the whole trilogy in with another series I don’t really know how to review (the Throne of Glass series) and do an 8 day messy review holiday extravaganza! So that starts today and goes until the 22nd. Should be tons of fun for everyone (unless you disagree with my reviews, I guess, then it might not be great for you.) ¯\_(ツ)_/¯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 »
