Top Ten Tuesday | Books I’ll Always Reread

Happy Tuesday, bloggers!

This month, I reached my four-year blogging anniversary. And I cannot believe I’ve stayed here. Sure, I could have left, and I’ve mostly part-time blog for the time being. However, I’m happy to be a part of this community.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The next prompt is Top Ten Tuesday Turns 10! We get two options: redo a topic we’ve already done, or do one we haven’t. Since I’m completed quite a few topics, I’ll redo books I could reread forever, just with a different title.

My reading choices have changed since the last time I did this topic, so I pleasantly surprised by my choices.

Enjoy the read!

Beyond the Blurb | Why, as an Adult, I Want to Read Percy Jackson

Morning, everyone!

Who doesn’t know about Percy Jackson? Not many. But I never thought I should read it, until recently. Maybe I thought I wouldn’t fit into the series. Even though I’ve (recently) picked my Hogwarts house proudly, I always felt like an outsider in that fandom. So why wouldn’t I feel the same with PJO?

As an adult, I didn’t experience this fandom at all, but I wanted to. I related to a 12-year-old child who’s father abandoned him more than I did with a child with a lightning bolt on his forehead.

So when I heard that Uncle Rick started working on the pilot of his PJO show, I knew I couldn’t pass up the series again. Now, back in the day, I did read some of The Lightning Thief. I remembered Grover, all the shenanigans the trio got into, and some of the storyline. Yet I didn’t finish the book though. When I was younger though, my family couldn’t afford a ton of books, so I often borrowed copies from my friends or local library, if it had what I was looking for. Not this time. So I bought myself the box set, and I haven’t looked back since.

But why should I read this iconic series though? I’m an adult, not a teen or middle grader. I’m outside of the target audience. So what’s the point? That thought is what sparked this post. Here are the reasons why I, and you, should read Percy Jackson and the Olympians!

Happy Tuesday, bloggers!

Last week, I skipped TTT since I rarely read books with happy beach/summer-themed covers. With this next topic though, I get to show the world how horrible my memory is. 😂

Monthly Wrap-Up: May 2020

Morning, everyone!

May was one of the most intense months I’ve had in recent years. And frankly, my blogging took a backseat to everything else. My mental health wasn’t the greatest either. So that’s why I haven’t been present in the book community.

And I want to apologize for not being there for others. I just hope June is a better month.

Top Ten Tuesday | Reasons Why I Love Dark Bully Romance

Happy Tuesday, bloggers!

Dark bully romance is a hard genre to love. And given that I’m a bully survivor, I’m surprised I’ve even picked up a book with this genre. That’s not me. I don’t like it when authors fetishize or romanticize bullying. However, the authors I’ve followed do the exact opposite.
