Top Ten Favorite New-To-Me Authors I Read in 2015

Top Ten Favorite New-To-Me Authors I Read in 2015

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. The time has finally come for all of the “Best of 2015” lists, and I am STOKED. It has been a pretty baller reading year – for me, anyway. And more specifically, how great has this year been for debut authors? Seriously, I found so many excellent debuts that I can’t resist putting them on this list, because I’m DESPERATE for their sophomore novels. Hats off to you guys. You killed it! 2015 Debut Authors 1. Becky Albertalli: Yeah, she was ROBBED of the Goodreads Choice […]

Top Ten Books on My Fall 2015 TBR List

Top Ten Books on My Fall 2015 TBR List

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Ha. Haha. Remember when I said on my summer TBR that I should make the whole list, because I had less review copies? Well I lied. I did have plenty of review copies and plenty of tougher reads which meant that I read much more slowly. I failedddd. 6/10. Here’s hoping fall goes better. I’m at least trying to be more realistic. From My Shelf 1 – 3. Every Breath, Every Word, and Every Move by Ellie Marney: A repeat from the last list – but […]

Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors (2015 Edition)

Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors (2015 Edition)

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. This was one of the very first Top Ten Tuesday topics I did on the blog – all the way back in 2013. I wrote up my list before looking at that post, and hilariously only ONE author made both versions of the list. I suppose it makes sense – in the meantime I’ve read at least 250 more books and gotten to know so many other authors… and tastes change. These authors I’ve all read multiple books from (if not their entire oeuvres), and something […]

Top 7 Fairy Tale Retellings I’ve Read and Top 3 Retellings I Want To Read

Top 7 Fairy Tale Retellings I’ve Read and Top 3 Retellings I Want To Read

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Weird thing: I absolutely adore fairy tale retellings, but apparently I haven’t read nearly enough of them. I couldn’t come up with a list of 10 good ones if I tried! 🙁 BUT that means I can use part of this list to muse on some of the retellings I definitely need to prioritize on my TBR. So here – we – go. Top 7 Retellings I’ve Read 1. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer: Obvious choice is obvious. I mean, Meyer retells the fairy tales […]

Ten Books That Celebrate Diversity

Ten Books That Celebrate Diversity

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. In the past couple of years, the call for diverse books has been enormous, and finally some of those shunted minorities are getting to see themselves in books. This is, obviously, a tremendously good thing. There can never be enough diversity in books because every person deserves to have that one book that makes them feel like they’re not alone. Now, I’ll freely admit that I probably don’t read nearly enough diverse books. Part of that is because they can so often turn out to be […]

The Cinderella Book Tag

The Cinderella Book Tag

Queen of all things Disney, Mel from The Daily Prophecy, tagged me for the Cinderella Book Tag a while back – and well, you know how much I love tags. And fairy tales. I like the twist on this tag 🙂 so let’s go! Evil Stepsisters A Book with Characters You Hate: Haaaa, I was stumped on this one for a bit, but then I remembered Rose and Dmitri from Vampire Academy. I’ll never let go of my hatred for them ♥ Prince Charming A Book with a Gentleman: When I think of the word “gentleman”, I’ll always think about “Golden Boy”, aka Cade from […]

Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far In 2015

Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far In 2015

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. We’re already halfway through 2015?? Are you serious? But – this means it’s time to look back on all the books I’ve read so far, all 65 of them, and happily I can say that I’ve read some amazing books. Here are my favorites so far. 1. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli: YEP. Flawless Oreo-filled happiness. Last week, when I asked on Twitter which book last made people wholeheartedly and unabashedly happy, like 4 people said Simon. FOR GOOD REASON. If you […]

Top Ten Books On My Summer 2015 TBR List

Top Ten Books On My Summer 2015 TBR List

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Time for another seasonal TBR! You know how I love these. For my spring 2015 TBR, I got really close. I’m reading The Kiss of Deception right now, and all the rest I actually did read! I’m blaming my lack of self-control on April and May ARCs for *just* not making it, but I’ll be sure to finish it off this week. Summer means less ARCs and more freedom, so there’s pretty much no reason I shouldn’t be 10 for 10 on this one. From My […]
