Top Ten Tuesday | Favourite Bookmarks

Happy Tuesday!

Well, it snowed last night. I’m in a sea of white stuff, and it’s not even winter yet. I shouldn’t complain though. It does look pretty from afar. 😂

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 favourite bookmarks! I don’t use many since I usually stick with a few and go from there. But I thought I’d make a list of all the bookmarks I’ve used over the years.

Enjoy the post!

Beyond the Blurb | Why I’m Not an Ebook Reader

Morning, bloggers,

You’d think that since I’m a blogger, then I’d love reading ebooks. You’ve assumed wrong. Me too. I honestly thought I’d enjoy more access to books. But I’m more of a physical reader. When I first started blogging though, I had a goal of reading more ebooks. I failed that, haven’t I? So why am I like this?

Well, that answer took a lot longer to come up with. So for my next discussion post, I want to discuss how I’m not a fan of ebooks and ereaders and why I’m okay with that.

Top Ten Tuesday | Books That Give Off Autumn Vibes

Happy Tuesday, readers,

We’re just into November. And I’m not okay with that fact. I’m so behind on everything, and I truly mean that. So coming into this month is a shock. Hopefully, I’m not alone on that.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The first November prompt is books that give off autumn vibes. What’s that? Well, that is books with an autumn atmosphere, scenes, or colours on the cover. I want to highlight books I’ve been meaning to read or have already read.

I hope you all love this post!

Monthly Wrap-Up: October 2019

Morning, bloggers!

Halloween is done. And I cannot believe it’s November already. I can’t. So this post is giving me all the sad feels, if you know what I mean.

Who else is almost close to finishing their Goodreads Challenge? I am so stoked to have read forty-six books. I just need four more to complete my fifty-book goal!

Happy Tuesday, ghouls and goblins!

We have two more days. I repeat, we have two more days until Halloween! Who is ready? HA. I’m attending a party and don’t know what I’ll dress up as.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. October’s final prompt is a Halloween freebie! What does that mean? Well, I get to gush about spooky reads.

Have a great read and a Happy Halloween, everyone!

The Sunshine Blogger Award (8)

Morning, bloggers!

I’m back! I took needed a much-needed hiatus from the online world and my blog. I didn’t want to spread myself too thin with everything going on, so I took some time off.

I want to thank Misty from Misty’s Book Space for nominating me! Please give her some love, yes?

Misty’s Questions

What was the last book you strongly disliked?

The Girl the Sea Gave Back didn’t sit well with me. I wanted to love it. And while I enjoyed it, I think my expectations were a tad too high for what I read.

How does your star rating system work for your reviews (if you use one)?

5 star: Loved it

4: Liked it a lot, but had a few issues

3: Liked it, but had several issues

2: Didn’t like since it had many problems

1: Hated it

What are your favorite pizza toppings?

Pepperoni, onions, red and green peppers, and sausage! Sometimes, I enjoy some pineapple (fight me)

Would you rather read a great plot with mediocre characters, or a boring plot with amazing characters?

Oh no, not this question. Okay, I’ll pick amazing characters.

How many books are you currently reading, and which one is your favorite so far?

I’m currently reading one e-ARC. But my last favourite is Broken Wings! I love me some dark high school romance.

What was the last book review you posted?

HAHA. I’ve been in a review slump since August. But the last one is DEV1AT3.

Do you prefer MG, YA, NA, or adult books?

I’m starting to prefer NA and adult more than anything lately. But I adore YA though.

Is there a popular author you’re NOT interested in reading anything by? (Elaborate if you’re comfortable doing so!)

Tomi Adeyemi and Justina Ireland are at the top of my list. Tomi attacked Nora Roberts, and Justina attacked Asian women. Need I say more?

What marginalized rep would you most strongly like to see more of in books?

I would love more mental illness rep. Unfortunately, I don’t see a lot of it though. But it needs to be done properly though. Making fun of mental health or not representing it correctly will hurt readers.

Do you listen to music while reading?

No, I cannot. If I do, I’ll find myself humming to the song, not reading the book.

Do you prefer book twitter or bookstagram?

Bookstagram, which I’m not involved in. Book Twitter is a bit too…psychotic.


My Questions

  1. What was the last book that made you cozy warm?
  2. What marginalized rep would you most strongly like to see more of in books?
  3. What was the last book you couldn’t finish?
  4. Who’s your new favourite character?
  5. Do you like spooky books?
  6. What’s your most recent scary read?
  7. What are you planning to be for Halloween?
  8. What is your favourite age category (MG, YA, NA, etc.)
  9. What most recently published book are you worried in reading?
  10. What’s your guilty reading pleasures?
  11. Do you prefer book twitter or bookstagram?

Top Ten Tuesday | Books I’d Give Different Titles To

Happy Tuesday, bloggers,

Did anyone struggle with this week’s topic? I can’t be the only one who had no clue on what to pick. Truly, an easy prompt is all I need. 😂 But we need to spice things up, yes?

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The new prompt is books I’d give different titles to. I may work for a book publisher, but I might be a little rusty on book titles.

Even though I wasn’t sure what to choose, I hope the post is a fun read for you all!

Bookending Autumn | Sweater Weather

Morning, bloggers!

I’m back with another Bookending post! As you may have seen, this week I took some time away from my blog because I haven’t been feeling well.

So I’m excited for it and took my time with my answers so I’d get it right. This post is part of the Bookending Autumn 2019, founded by Clo and Sam. This prompt, hosted by Danielle from Poetry Books YA is all a part of sweater weather. So name books that remind you of a cozy fall sweater.

I hope you love my choices!
