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 – 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). Like the last Top 5 Wednesday that I posted (sorry about last week), I interpreted this a little differently than was maybe intended. I’m including books that scared me in the sense that my adrenaline was up, I couldn’t stop reading because I feared for my characters’ lives, that kind of thing. Anyway! Let’s do this thing!Read More »

Top 5 Wednesday – Creepy Settings

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 interpreted this topic a little differently than I’m sure a lot of people will, because I don’t read horror. It freaks me out too much, and reading is supposed to be fun. So! This topic has become sort of my own thing – creepy settings in books that aren’t creepy on their own. Anyway, you’ll see!Read More »

Amanda Reads – September 2017

It’s time for my monthly reading roundup! The month went by super fast, and I read a bunch of romances, because WHY NOT? Haha. It was a good time. So sorry for the heavy dose of romance in this recap – I read them when I’m stressed. And if you know anything about how Day Job is going, you’d understand my need for ~*rOmAnCe*~.

Here’s a reminder of the rating system for these monthly reading roundups (puppy pictures!):

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 »
