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 […]
Tag: the perks of being a wallflower
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 […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
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 […]
So I had been hearing about this book for ages, really. Almost two years and I just now got around to finally reading it. Considering what I had heard (not much about the story, but the emotions people had about it) I had pretty high expectations, but the book exceeded my wildest dreams. I cried. I seriously, seriously cried for almost the last quarter of the book. That honestly has never happened before. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten this emotional about a book. But it was crying in the best possible way, because it’s so uplifting. I just have to write this review now […]
