Top Ten Friendships in Books

Top Ten Friendships in Books

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. As I looked at the topic for this week I had a moment like, “Wait, didn’t we do this topic just last year?” Well, we didn’t, but roughly a year ago I wrote an elaborate mushy post including examples of best friendships in books as a part of my “Keys to My Heart” discussion series. Awwwwwww. Year-ago-Debby was so cute. So, much of this list is repeated from that, but there are also some new examples of books I’ve read in the meantime. Smart Girls Get […]

Top Ten Boys Who Made Me Swoon

Top Ten Boys Who Made Me Swoon

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Yes, I’m coming off a romance high, so all I could think about for this week’s TTT was to talk about swoony boys. Now I will specify first off that there is a difference between shipping a ship and swooning over a guy. I swoon when a guy is just so absolutely perfect, dreamy, and romantic that I want him in my life. SO THERE. Click on the banners to go to my review of the book or it’s Goodreads page! Cade is the primary inspiration […]

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 […]

Top Ten Books I Read In 2013

Top Ten Books I Read In 2013

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. It’s finally the last day of the year! I honestly can’t believe that because it feels like just yesterday it was August. I don’t know how the time has past so quickly. Um. Anyway. So I read 93 books this year. o_O Wow. Yeah, making a top ten out of that is not working for me (too many amazing books!), so I’ll give you my top ten 2013 releases and pre-2013 releases. I actually have a document ranking all 93 books I read in order, so […]

Monthly Wrap-Up: November 2013

Monthly Wrap-Up: November 2013

November 2013: the month of the snuggly comeback! Bonjour people! I know it’s weird to have a monthly wrap-up since I only came back on November 25th, but you know what, I still have a book haul to show you, and some milestones that can be talked about. So here we go! In November I read 7 books, which is kind of sad. But The Bone Season was massive, and so is S., which I’m working my way through now, and the move to WordPress did take up a lot of time as well. So I’m still relatively proud of myself. The blog itself has […]

Blogger Trick or Treat: Costumes for Book Nerds

Blogger Trick or Treat: Costumes for Book Nerds

So Halloween is coming up and of course (if I lived in a country that celebrated it) that’s something to be excited about! Haha, okay, I don’t celebrate Halloween, here in the Netherlands, but I did celebrate it as a child growing up in the US, so I have some fond memories there. Thus, when Kara and Lyn from Great Imaginations announced they were looking for people to participate in a Halloween event, I jumped at the opportunity! And then somehow I ended up having to post first and not really knowing what to do or if this was any good and ohmygodwhatamidoing whydidisignupforthis *cough* […]

Book Review: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

Book Review: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

Ho – ly – crap. Are you reading this series yet? If not, get on that stat. Whereas I loved Throne of Glass and only had one minor issue with the whole book that ultimately didn’t take away from my enjoyment at all… Crown of Midnight does it so much better. This book is amazing. I loved every second of it, and putting it down was physically painful. And writing this review is even more painful, because… how am I supposed to achieve a good review without spoiling anything? Ugh. Crown of Midnight is split into two parts. The first focuses on Celaena adjusting to her role as […]
