Taylor Swift Book Tag

Taylor Swift Book Tag

The Taylor Swift Book Tag, created by The Book Life, pairs book titles to Taylor Swift’s songs. I saw it go around a bunch of blogs a while back, and it looked like SO MUCH FUN, so I put it on my list to get around to sometime even though nobody had actually tagged me. Psh rules! We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together A Book/Series That I Was Pretty Sure I Was In Love With, But Then Wanted To Break Up With Divergent was one of the first books I picked up after I finished reading The Hunger Games, and at the time, I […]

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 Favorite Heroines From Books

Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I thought for this list I would have a GINORMOUS list that would be super hard to trim down, but that actually isn’t the case! I focused mostly on sci-fi and fantasy series – because then there is actual world saving going on and such – and then the most sparkling personalities I could remember. (You’ll notice that I fall for the heroines with plenty of flaws.) Here’s what I came up with! from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas Celaena is just […]

The Bookshelf Tag

The Bookshelf Tag

A while back, Nitzan @ The Book Babe’s Reads tagged me for the Bookshelf Tag! (No idea who originally created this one – sorry!) Of course, with moving and everything, I am late in responding, but whatever. Who cares? It’s a tag! It’s fun! Come browse my bookshelves with me! 1. Is there a book that you really want to read but haven’t because you know it’ll make you cry? Nope! I very rarely cry at books. To date there’s been around 5 books that have made me cry. But I AM scared of reading books that others have said will make me cry – […]

Blogger Trick-or-Treat: Halloween Treats à la Harry Potter

Blogger Trick-or-Treat: Halloween Treats à la Harry Potter

Welcome to Year 2 of Blogger Trick-or-Treat, organized by Great Imaginations! And HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I’m so glad I got to participate last year, with my bookish Halloween costumes, so when the girls asked me to participate again, I was all for it. Then… the terror set in. WHAT DO I WRITE ABOUT?! While some people will use Halloween as an occasion to celebrate anything and everything horror related, I am not one of those people. You see, I’m the biggest scaredy cat around. Things that aren’t even remotely scary will give me nightmares, honestly. To me, Halloween celebrations will always be the cutesy paranormal kind, […]

Top Ten Characters Who I Would Totally Want To Be For Halloween

Top Ten Characters Who I Would Totally Want To Be For Halloween

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. “IT’S ALMOST HALLOWEEEEEEEEEEEEN!” she yells, as if she lives in a country where Halloween means anything. *cough* But, I mean, dressing up is fun anyway. Last year, for Blogger Trick or Treat, I shared some costumes for book nerds, and I gotta say, dressing up as a book character would be the way to go. So many awesome characters. Such badassery. Here are my top picks. 1. Celaena from the Throne of Glass series: Let’s face it, Celaena’s a freaking bad-ass. I’m worried about the silver […]
