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 […]

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 […]

The second half of 2015 is fast approaching, which means MANY MORE AMAZING BOOKS are about to hit the shelves. Are we ready for the September-October onslaught? YEAH BUT NO BUT I DON’T KNOW.

Top Ten Books I’d Love To See As Movies or TV Shows

Top Ten Books I’d Love To See As Movies or TV Shows

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I love my books, books, books, but if you ever read my monthly wrap-ups, you’ve probably noticed that I’m a big movie/TV whore as well. I like storytelling in ALL forms, okay, but particularly for sci-fi and fantasy tales, it’s just so much more exciting to see all the details of the world come to life. ANYWAY. Here are my picks for movies/TV shows I want to see. For most, I would choose movies, because I don’t really trust TV series adaptations to really stay faithful. […]

Top Ten Failed Cover Redesigns

Top Ten Failed Cover Redesigns

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I was blanking for this week’s freebie topic, until Steph from Cuddlebuggery suggested failed cover redesigns. OH YES. I am prepared to talk about iffy cover redesigns all day erry day. (Though in making this, I’ve discovered there are far more redesigns I’m actually okay with.) Let’s go! 1. Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend by Katie Finn These covers were SO perfect! So whimsical and cute and now we’re left with blahhhhh. I am not amused. I haven’t bought the first book yet […]
