Book Haul #11: The Belated BEA Haul

Book Haul #11: The Belated BEA Haul

Heeeeyy guys. So this week I’m officially closing the book on all things BEA (don’t forget to read part 1 and part 2 for all my New York and BEA adventures!), which means my long awaited book haul is here. Now, I do have a vlog of this – but I recorded it at the beginning of June, so some of the things I say are a bit out of date. BUT WHATEVER. WATCH AND ENJOY. Pre-BEA Books Thursday Haul Friday Haul Saturday Haul Swag Haul Gifted The Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman (Thanks Gaby!) The Boyfriend App by Katie Sise (Thanks […]

Expectations for NYC/BEA 2014

Expectations for NYC/BEA 2014

So, umm, BEA is happening. We are now ONE WEEK AWAY PEOPLE. ALERT. ALERT. I’m pretty sure all fellow attendees are in full fledged panic mode, packing, getting ready to fly (or drive), and getting way too freaking excited about all the epic bookishness about to go down. I have reached levels of being UNABLE TO CAN, but at the same time, I’m trying to hold everything together. I’ve been fully packed since Sunday, although I’m not leaving till Saturday. I have a schedule. Prioritized. And I have a buttload of expectations, some slightly exaggerated, some not, but whatever, this is my blog, I do […]

Top Ten All Time Favorite Contemporary Books

Top Ten All Time Favorite Contemporary Books

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I chose contemporary for this topic because, well for most other genres, the books I’ve read are in series and then it’s just repetitive and everything. Since most contemporaries are stand alone, I have a LOT more to choose from. These are all my absolute favorites, and all of them have 5 star ratings. Let the gushing begin.

Top Ten Books I Picked Up Because of the Title

Top Ten Books I Picked Up Because of the Title

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. This topic was done back in October 2011, and it’s perfect for me! Seriously, a lot of the time what catches my eye first about a book is the title. Titles can be the deciding factor for me to pick up a book. A lot of the time, they can be quirky and long and immediately give me a sense of the humor that I can expect in the book OR tell me that I’ll be able to relate to it well. Click on each cover […]

Top Ten Books That Will Make You Swoon

Top Ten Books That Will Make You Swoon

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Looking up books for this list, I realize that most romances that I love are more of the awwwwwww and flail-worthy types than swoooooon-y types. There is a difference, okay? Swoonful romances I interpret as less “cutesy” and more sexy and irresistible. So. There’s that. Semantics but whatever. I clearly just needed some justification for not putting Adorkable on this list. 1. A Mad, Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller Prepare to see this book on a looooot of TTTs from now on. But oh my […]

Top Ten Books That Have Made Me Cry

Top Ten Books That Have Made Me Cry

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I had to tweak the title of this TTT just a little bit because I have a cold black heart. I hardly ever cry at books, and when I do, it’s for reasons that wouldn’t work on many other people. I usually just cry when I really relate to a character and what they’re going through. So it’s usually contemporaries. But also, this means that when a book achieves this nigh impossible feat of putting tears in my eyes, they also get a spot on my […]

2013 End of Year Book Survey

2013 End of Year Book Survey

This survey was created by the lovely Jamie at the Perpetual Page-Turner! It might be a bit late, but I absolutely didn’t want to do it before the year was over, in case the last couple reads were absolutely amazing. So, yeah. Late, maybe. But I regret nothing. (I’ll have a personal review of 2013 later involving blog statistics, but that’ll be way late because I want to get my reviews reformatted first.) Best in Books 2013 1. Best book you read in 2013? I read 93 books this year. I already cheated on the TTT of this topic and made it 20 books. And […]

Book Haul #5: The Christmas Edition

Book Haul #5: The Christmas Edition

It’s been almost a month since the last book haul, but that’s because I went on a book buying ban to prevent myself from buying books that I would possibly be getting for Christmas. It was a good thing, because my shelves are getting overloaded as it is. But so now, of course, I have a huge haul to show you. The Christmas Gifts: I was stunned by how many books I got for Christmas, honestly. And my dad stuck to my wishlist wonderfully, getting me my most highly sought after books. The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider: Good thing that I got this […]
