Taylor Swift Lover Book Tag

Morning, everyone!

I am so excited for the weekend. My friends and I went to an early viewing of IT: Chapter 2. I jumped, I laughed, and I enjoyed it, even if I wanted nothing more than to burn the clown.

Nish and Ngoc from Nish and Ngoc’s Book Nook created this tag, and I thought I’d give it try! I want to thank these two for tagging me!

I hope you like the post. Have a great weekend, readers!

The Birthday Book Tag

Morning, bloggers!

I need to ring in this birthday since I am stumbling into a new decade. A large part of me feels as if I don’t deserve to celebrate. Everything going on in my life demands my time, and another birthday shouldn’t matter. I’m reaching a milestone though.

So that is why I’m posting this tag, which I found on Amb Reads. If you haven’t taken a look, please do it now. Amber has a wonderful blog, so head over there!

Song Request Book Tag

Morning, book lovers!

I’ve struggled with what post I’ll write up next. But then I saw the tag ping, and I knew Jess and Teagan from Fiction No Chaser saved me. You need to show them all the love and support they deserve. I love these two ladies, my dark hearted soulmates. 💜 Thank you, darlings!

I love when book tags combine another passion of mine. I rarely see it, so I jump at the chance to do this kind of post. It’s refreshing and gets me on my toes! So I hope you all love what’s in store. Let’s get to it.

The Sleeping Beauty Book Tag

I’ll just admit this now: I’m not a huge fan of Sleeping Beauty. But once I watched Maleficent, I was hooked though. I’m more of a Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid fan. But you know me about Disney and tags. I’m predictable, I know.

Mandy and Sha tagged me. Thank you, dearies! This pick-me-up is just what I’ve been looking for! So let’s get to the tag, yes?

Monthly Wrap-Up | December 2018

Morning, book fam!

Who else feels drained from the holidays? I’ve been getting in some solid 10-hour nights, but I still feel exhausted. So I am glad I’m still on my work break, or I couldn’t function properly. Hopefully, for my new year’s resolution, I’ll get back into the blogging swing. I’ve missed talking with all of you.

But Christmas turned out great, and New Year’s Eve just set off a great new start to 2019. Is anyone freaking out over the number of books we need to buy and read this year?

Blogmas | The Nightmare before Christmas Tag

Morning, book lovers!

Don’t panic, everyone. But we have just 1 week, 7 days, and 168 hours until Christmas. 😉

Anyways, being an 80s baby growing up in the 90s, I fell in love with the movie Nightmare before Christmas. Frankly, almost every movie Tim Burton has created is on my favourite’s list. So I was thrilled to find this tag floating around. I know the flick may be slightly unconventional, but it shaped the 90s kids. And I love to see the stories people have about it.

I found this wonderful tag on Boston Book Reader. If you haven’t checked out Kris’ blog, go do so now!

End of the Year Book Tag | 2018

Hey everyone,

Everything seems to start winding down or speeding up, and I’m feeling both at the moment. I can’t imagine we’re so close to Christmas and the new year, and I still have so much more to accomplish for 2018. But I’m counting down the days for my holiday break, which is definitely needed right now.

I found this fantastic book tag on My World of Books. You need to check out Sahi’s blog. I love it! I hope you all enjoy.

 

Are There Any Books You Started This Year That You Need to Finish?

Oh no, not this question. During my slump, I started so many books that I lost count. But these need to be at the top of my list though.

 

Do You Have an Autumnal Book to Transition into the End of the Year?

Typically, I don’t. I’m such a mood reader and don’t usually reread books anymore.

 

Is There a New Release That You’re Still Waiting For?

I’ve waited for these books for such a long time, but I’m scared to read them, especially QOAAD, which will just bring pain, misery, and tears.

 

What Are Three Books You Want to Read before the End of the Year?

I literally do not have the time to attempt these titles, but I don’t care. I need some binge-reading right now.

 

Is There a Book You Think Could Still Shock You and Become a Favourite of the Year?

You all know I’m a huge fan of historical fiction set in WWII. I’ve read nothing but stellar reviews for this book, and I cannot wait to dive into it.

 

Have You Already Started Making Reading Plans for 2019?

Of course! I hope to do more buddy reads, read more books (others than just the 50 for my Goodreads challenge), get into more romance novels, take more risks with my blog and not freak out when I do them, and take the plunge with Instagram, which intimidates me more than you’ll ever believe.


Tag Time!

You know the deal: if you feel pressured to squeeze this book tag into your already tight schedule, by all means, don’t be. You aren’t obligated to do it. If you want to, or if I haven’t tagged you in this, then go ahead. But link back to my post. I’d love to see what you’ve done!

Top Ten Tuesday | Villains

Happy Tuesday, bloggers!

We have just eight more days until Halloween. I’ve been counting down the days for this prompt. You all know my affinity for awful characters.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. Today’s theme is villains! I will never stop loving them. Sometimes, they might be the only reason why I stay with a series and why I pick up the first book. So let’s get my top eight choices.

 

Prince Balekin from The Wicked King

At first, I simply distrusted Balekin, but I never knew of his potential. You’d think I’d select Jude and Cardan for my picks. But no. These two characters are the product of someone’s design. Balekin is on a different level than they are. I can’t believe I rooted for his family.

 

Lifelikes from (Well) Lifel1k3

How can I possibly hate them?! The way Kristoff writes these perfectly flawed yet utterly human-like characters is why. Lifelikes may hold more humanity than us humans, but they scare me. They hold destruction in one hand and salvation in the next. But they’re hellbent on being the masters of their own fate and aren’t afraid of wiping out our race in the process.

 

The Arrons Two Dark Reigns

I haven’t caught up with the series yet, but from the first chapter, I hated the Arron family. They shape Katherine for who she is, and I almost loathe her as much as I do Mirabella. But I don’t blame the sisters for what they must do in order to survive this heinous world. The Arrons, though, still creep me out and infuriate me.

 

Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn

Yes, you only get a taste of Gotham City Sirens here. But Sarah perfectly captures my three favourite female villains! This terrible trio almost makes Gotham more interesting.

 

Caro from Evermore

Sara may be a debut author, but she knows how to spin the perfect villain. I never expected anything from Caro. But I was so wrong about this character. And as the second book draws closer, I cannot wait to see how she will destroy everything Jules fights for.

 

Cohort from Queen of Air and Darkness

I never thought I’d hate another Shadowhunter as I despised Valentine. But the Cohort holds a special place on my hate list. After the devastation from the last war, select few Shadowhunters form the Cohort and wish to find any means necessary to restrict Downworlders.

 

Mother Blackbeak from Queen of Shadows

I honestly thought I hated her in Heir of Fire. But I want to gut this woman more than you can imagine. I wanted to put Manon in my list, but I don’t see her as much of a villain. Her grandmother still sends chills down my back when I think of her.

 

Legend from Finale

Can we please take a moment to marvel at this cover?! I’m in bliss. I’m still debating this choice. Some part of me wants to scream that he is one, then the other part feels as if he’s misunderstood. Why must villains be so complicated?!
