Ten Authors I REALLY Want To Meet

Ten Authors I REALLY Want To Meet

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I’ve been lucky enough to meet some of my very favorite authors: Samantha Shannon, Tahereh Mafi, Kody Keplinger, Cora Carmack, Sarah J. Maas, and Neil Gaiman – but obviously, there are still a bunch that I wish I could meet. Here are ten at the top of that list ♥ 1. J.K. Rowling Duh. The queen. The only author that got me reading enthusiastically as a kid. The one who made me a fangirl first. The one who changed my life. I WISH. 2. Rick Riordan […]

Ten Books I Will (Probably) Never Read

Ten Books I Will (Probably) Never Read

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Though I have an extensive TBR list, the list of books I won’t read is about just as long, probably. Now, some of these picks will be obvious, but some may surprise you. 1. Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James (and its sequels) Duh? Okay, at some point I might have considered reading this for lols, still trying desperately to understand the fascination, but at our book club sleepover last weekend, we watched the movie (for the same reasons) and me reading this book would […]

Top Ten Inspiring Quotes from Books

Top Ten Inspiring Quotes from Books

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I’m not a biiiig quote person, but I remembered correctly that in my favorite inspiring contemporary reads, there are some amazing passages that I really took to heart. “You think it’s so easy to change yourself. You think it’s so easy, but it’s not. True, things don’t stay the same forever: couches are replaced, boys leave, you discover a song, your body becomes forever scarred. And with each of these moments you change and change again, your true self spinning, shifting positions– but always at last […]

Ten Books I Recently Added To My TBR

Ten Books I Recently Added To My TBR

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. A TBR is a mysterious thing. Ever growing despite all of my attempts to trim it down. Seriously, I read so much in March that I was SO CLOSE to finally getting that Goodreads shelf to under 500 but then… yeah, my latest book haul happened. Oops. Anyway, here are 10 books I discovered recently and added to my TBR – and to mix it up a bit, half of the list will be unreleased books and half will be backlist books 🙂 Recent Backlist Discoveries […]

Top Ten Books From My Childhood and Teen Years That I’d Like To Revisit

Top Ten Books From My Childhood and Teen Years That I’d Like To Revisit

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. This list is really freaking hard for me, because as I’ve said before I didn’t read a lot as a kid. So I actually thought more about required reading as well that I’d like to revisit – which counts, I suppose. *cough* My excitement here is palpable. 1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling: DUH? This was my childhood. And fair enough, I’ve reread it a ton of times, but not recently. The last time was probably 5-6 years ago. Must fix that this year. 2. The […]

Top Ten Books On My Spring 2015 TBR List

Top Ten Books On My Spring 2015 TBR List

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN. I am actually really excited to announce that I am 9 for 10 on my Winter TBR – and the 10th is only delayed because it became our book club pick for April! SO HA. I pretty much won that one. I really liked the structure I used in my last seasonal TBR – picking some books from my shelf, some review copies, and some new releases – so I think I’ll do that again! It really keeps me reading a variety […]

Top Ten Books for Readers Who Like Geeky/Nerdy Things

Top Ten Books for Readers Who Like Geeky/Nerdy Things

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I had a really freaking hard time thinking of a topic for this week. I had like ten million ideas (i.e. genderbending, traveling, fairy tales, Greek mythology), but though I love ALL of those things, I simply haven’t read enough books to make a top ten for any of them o_o I did have enough for hate-to-love romance ships, but I kind of covered those in my TTT on romantic tropes I love. I feel like a complete failure as a reader. BUT. Okay, so if […]

Top Ten (or Twenty) All-Time Favorite Books From the Last 3 Years

Top Ten (or Twenty) All-Time Favorite Books From the Last 3 Years

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Did anyone else just look at this topic and run off, cry, scream “JE REFUUUUUUSE”, and consider skipping it because it’s completely impossible? Yeah. That was basically how I felt. However, with some modifications, I have managed to make this work. I’m looking at books that were published in 2012-2015 – so backlist books I read were disqualified. Then, following my highest ratings, and separating the list into two top tens: contemporary and other, I actually feel confident with this. BUT I’M NOT NUMBERING THEM OR […]
