Book Haul #22: For Which I Am Forever Grateful

Book Haul #22: For Which I Am Forever Grateful

Hi lovely readers! Yes, it’s time for a book haul, but no, I am not doing a vlog. In fact, for the time being, I’m stopping vlogging. To be perfectly honest, the past few vlogs I’ve put up have gotten almost no interest, no comments – and they take SO long to make. There’s so much preparation, brainstorming, editing, so if it gets little response, it doesn’t seem worth it. Anyway, April was an epic release month, so even though I wasn’t really supposed to buy books, I had a bunch of pre-orders come in. But I also struck giveaway gold, I swear, and I […]

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 […]

Top Ten Books I Read In 2014

Top Ten Books I Read In 2014

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Here it is, probably one of the most dreaded topics of the year, because now we have to make some srs choices. Instinct screams, “JE REFUSE!” But, I don’t actually feel too bad, because I’ve been keeping up with my book rankings for the year in my yearbook spreadsheet – so I haven’t forgotten about all of the AMAZING books at the beginning of the year. In fact, despite having read over 120 books this year so far, I’m pretty happy with the top 10 that […]

Top Ten Book Characters Who Would Be Sitting At My Lunch Table

Top Ten Book Characters Who Would Be Sitting At My Lunch Table

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 tough time with this topic. Because, like, how do you ever even decide. Do you pick characters you relate to? Who you have something in common with? Do you pick your favorite ships so you could can stare creepily? Do you pick the hotties so you can ogle them? *cough* Do you just pick the most awesome characters on the block? But what if the characters you love are not the most social? I’M NOT A PERFECTIONIST OVERTHINKER, WHAT ARE YOU TALKING […]

ARC Book Review: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

ARC Book Review: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

Sarah J. Maas delivers again with Heir of Fire, the third installment in a high fantasy series that is turning out to be one of my absolute favorites. At 565 pages, this book is HUGE – but I loved it and almost wish it were longer so I could have stayed in that world. And I know this book hasn’t even been released yet, but can I has the next one plz? I’m only slightly addicted. Heir of Fire is what I’ll fondly call the character and world building installment of the Throne of Glass series, because seriously. Sarah J. Maas steps it up and […]

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Yes, I have two Top Ten Tuesdays today because I’m catching up on last week’s topic. So don’t forget to check out today’s other post! Anyway, time for another seasonal TBR list. Which means it’s time for me to look back on my spring TBR list. 8/10!
