This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I love and hate today’s topic. I love that we get to shine the spotlight on those titles that definitely deserve more attention, but I hate that while looking on Goodreads for books I’ve read with less than 2,000 ratings, I saw so many titles that genuinely upset me. Holy crap guys. You all have some catching up to do. As in, please, do read these, right about now. My Top Ten Most Underrated Books (According to Goodreads) 1.

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 […]

Tag: Burn, Rewrite, or Reread?

Tag: Burn, Rewrite, or Reread?

Lyn from Great Imaginations tagged me to do the Burn, Rewrite, or Reread tag/challenge/thing, and that made me SO HAPPY because honestly, this sounds hilarious. Basically, we’re playing kiss/marry/kill but with BOOKS. The rules are as follows: randomly pick three books you’ve read, and then decide which you would burn, rewrite or reread. I’m using Goodreads and a random number generator, but I’m sure you could do it another way if you wanted to. Round One Reread: Faking It by Cora Carmack This was not difficult, because as a matter of fact, I just reread Faking It last week! Seriously, this is one of my […]

The Keys To My Heart #9: Banterfluff

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the bookish things that steal my heart. #9. Banterfluff If you follow this blog, by now you’ve probably noticed that I am a huge fan of the fluffiest of books.

The Case For Fluffiness Christina from A Reader of Fictions wrote a post a while back about the fine art of fluff, which I highly suggest that all of you read. I […]

Top Ten Underrated Books I’ve Read

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I decided not to choose a specific genre for this post because, well, I just don’t read enough books – much less the underrated ones. Soooo deal with it. Here are ten books I’ve loved that I think deserve way more praise and lovin’ than they’re getting. 1. Adorkable by Sarra Manning I’m like a one-woman fangirl army for this book, so yeah. More love. MORE LOVE. 2. Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill I know this book does get a lot of love in some […]

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 […]

Book Review: The Art of Wishing by Lindsay Ribar

Book Review: The Art of Wishing by Lindsay Ribar

The Art of Wishing is a sparkling and original story that is just completely enjoyable. Practically from page 1, I was hooked. I was in the mood for something light and compelling, and this book certainly delivered. It’s a refreshing take on the paranormal genre with heavy influences from the contemporary, and all around a stunning debut from Lindsay Ribar. Now, as you can gather from the synopsis, this book is about a genie. Yes. Oliver appears before Margo and can grant her three wishes. I’m not a big paranormal reader, but this was such a refreshing and cute, adorable concept that I couldn’t help liking it. […]
