Friday Favorites is So Underrated

August 16: Favorite Underrated Books. As is completely normal for me, I'm listing entire series instead of one book because what is moderation? When I fall in love with an author I fall HARD and I read everything they've ever written. Clicking on the author's name will take you to the Goodreads page for the book which [...]

Top Ten Cozy, Wintry, Snuggly Books

It's currently snowing and you know what? Watching the flakes drift down, inhaling the steam from my spicy orange tea, it's the perfect time for a cozy read. Yes, please. These ten books are all tried and tested favorites. They usually only come out when life is sucking major donkey balls, I'm sick, or it's [...]

Top Ten Tuesday; Stuffed Full of Gratitude

This week's top ten is a freebie on the topic of gratitude because for a lot of us Thanksgiving is approaching. If you celebrate, happy Thanksgiving! If you don't, happy random week in November! Use this as an excuse for a large meal with the people you love, either way. To mix it up a [...]

Top Ten Tuesday: The Bookworm Wishlist

Top Ten Tuesdays were born on The Broke and the Bookish and then moved to That Artsy Reader Girl just this year. It's all about a love of books, lists, and combining the two as a gloriously nerdy whole. Come join in! This week's list is all about bookish items or merchandise I’d like to own. Tie down all [...]

Top Ten Tuesday, Villain Edition

Want to join in on the fun? Go sign up at That Artsy Reader Girl and come blog hop with all of us bookworms. I have to admit, I love a good villain. The action seems more exciting, the stakes are higher, the plot is richer and the snark factor (in the best books) goes up by [...]

Top Ten Longest Books I’ve Ever Read

Sometimes a long book, like a really long one, can be the most satisfying read. Short stories have their own charms, regular size books are satisfying, but when a good author has you in hand a thousand page book just feels like dropping into a new world and staying there. You really get to know the [...]

Top Ten Authors I’d Love to Meet

Top Ten Tuesdays was created by The Broke and the Bookish and recently moved over to That Artsy Reader Girl. It's all about a love of books, and a love of lists about books. Let's all remember that I'm super introverted, though. So I don't know about "meet". Meet involves talking and thinking up something to [...]

Top Ten Tuesday: Hidden Gems You Need in Your Life

I have a soft spot for these six lovelies. Some of them are older and therefore mostly forgotten, what with all the shiny new stuff coming out every year. A few are newer, but might not have had the best marketing. Whatever the reason, they're the underdog and we all know I'm a complete sucker [...]

Get Ye Back to Schoole: Top Ten Tuesday

This is a TTT post. On Tuesdays we make lists, we love books, and we makes lists about how much we love books. Wednesdays are for wearing pink. This week's list is broadly on the topic of learning, since most of us are either going back to school, know someone who is, or are hauling [...]

Books That Lived Up to Their Hype

Watching a book get smeared all over popular culture is a bit anxiety-inducing for me. When a book has legions of adoring fans, I want to trust them. I really do. They must like it for a reason, right? It's popular and everyone seems to love it. But will I love it? Is it too hyped? [...]
