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 10 Tuesday – Best Book Boy/Girlfriends

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 the best book boyfriends and girlfriends, and I’m going to tell you, I go both ways on this one. Meaning about half on this list are boys and half are girls. Because you know what? I like variety in my books. And I like love stories. And I’m trying to read diversely. And have I mentioned I like love stories? All of them. All the love.

Anyway, so these are in no particular order, because ranking them would be cruel. Oh, and it’s the boyfriend/girlfriend of that particular main character, which I’ll try to explain briefly for each one.

Top 5 Wednesday – Favorite Fancasts

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 super difficult for me, not because I don’t want my favorite books to become movies, but because I mostly read YA and don’t know very many young actors anymore! So we’re just going to go with it. I’m sorry I’m casting some adults as teenagers. I know, I know – these aren’t realistic. But this is my fancast, so there! 😛Read More »

ARC Review – Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman

Since I read so much, there are very few books that truly stay with me. A lot of times I’ll continue to think about things when I’m done reading, but that punched-in-the-gut feeling? It’s a lot rarer for me now than it used to be. I think it’s a side effect of over-saturation. Or, as H would say, TOO MANY BOOKS (which I don’t think is a thing). In any case, Starfish is sticking with me, and I’m not sure how long it’s going to take for me to shake it. I’m also not sure I want to shake it. But this ache? It’s making me feel both worn down and weightless at the same time.

Let me explain.Read More »
