Top Ten Tuesday | Last Five Books I’ve Abandoned

Happy Tuesday, bloggers!

We’re about halfway through May, and I have no sense of time anymore. Please tell me I’m not alone. So anyway, I usually don’t DNF series, but sometimes I step away from them for a long period.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. This week is about the top ten books I’ve abandoned. I’ve decided to pick the top five.

I hope you enjoy the post!

Monthly Wrap-Up | April 2019

Morning, everyone!

Who else struggled with April? I honestly wanted to read more books and to buy them too. But I didn’t care if I did either. And since I had to dodge Avengers spoilers, I took some time away from my blog and my social media accounts. You don’t know how good it felt for not dealing with a self-imposed deadline.

Let me tell you that I cried, and I still feel hollowed out after watching that movie. But I’ve never been so proud to be a part of this franchise and family. #ILoveYou3000

Not let’s get back to blogging. This post is short (somewhat) and sweet (I hope). I hope you love it!

Top Ten Tuesday | Thought-Provoking Book Quotes

Morning, bloggers!

I’ll be glad once this terribly bitter month is over. Either it’s winter in the early morning, spring in the afternoon, or the apocalypse by dinner time. Yesteryday, I wasn’t surprised when I saw hail.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The final prompt for this month is inspirational or thought-provoking book quotes. I want to use the latter for my next post. So here are my top picks!

Top Ten Tuesday | Audiobooks I’d Love to Listen to

Happy Tuesday, my lovely book bloggers,

Oh, I needed a break from everyday stress. And I’m glad I took the time to make up some new graphics. It’s about bloody time, right? I think I need a new, fresh start on the blog. And I’m excited to see what April will bring us all.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. For the final TTT March post, we get an audio freebie. I’ve talked a lot about songs, so I thought I’d stick with audiobooks, which, as you know, I rarely listen to. So here are my top picks of audiobooks I’m eagerly awaiting to listen to.

Out of My Comfort Zone Book Tag

Do you know how long I’ve been dreading this tag? I love tags. You all know I do. But I’ve been wondering how long I’d push this one off. The lovely Kathy from Books and Munches tagged me. Or should I say torture me?

One Major Rule

You have to pick ONE GENRE that you frequently read about and then you can’t use ANY books from that genre while answering the questions!

WHY WOULD ANYONE MAKE THIS RULE?! Okay, okay. I’m fine. I always read YA fantasy, so I’m screwed for all of these questions. 😅 Let’s get to the post, yes?

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!

Monthly Wrap-Up: November 2018

Hi, book fam!

Okay, I’ll be straight with you all. November may be my worst month of 2018, and I may be so glad it’s over. But my thrill of December starting just makes me warm up. As some of you know, I struggled with some personal problems like family stress and someone stealing my identity. But I can’t let these negative sway my love of Christmas.

So for my monthly goal, I’m catching up on my blog and up my blogger friends, reach out like before, and be more involved in our great community. And frankly, I’m a little stoked for Blogmas (or some form of it, because blogging every day sounds daunting).

Who’s ready for another monthly wrap-up post? Let’s get to it then.

Top Ten Tuesday | Books on My Fall 2018 TBR

Hey, everyone!

So guess who got an extension on her internship? Clearly me. And I forgot to tell everyone. Typical, I don’t say anything until weeks later. I’m thrilled, and I can’t believe I’ve been working at a small press for the last six months. I can’t. Someone slap me, please.

As you all know, Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. For this week’s topic, we get to show off our potential TBR list for Fall 2018. And I don’t know if I should be dreading this post or if I should be happy. My physical pile is getting out of control, but let’s throw in some new titles and just ignore the problem, shall we?

So I hope you enjoy! Here are my top picks:

 

Sadie

I’ve heard a lot of buzz with this new YA mystery. And I knew I had to read it when I found about the podcasts you can listen to while reading the book. I love unique ways of telling a story, and I think this book deserves a place on my TBR list.

 

Two Dark Reigns

I probably haven’t given the series proper credit. Kendare has created an eerie yet spellbinding world, and I love it. Unfortunately, some tropes kept me from reading the sequels sooner. But I need to stop letting my moods get in the way of some great storytelling. And frankly, I need to know which queen kills Mirabella.

 

Broken Things

I wasn’t sure if I should put this title on my list. However, I like to explore different genres. And I’ve seen some promising reviews for this YA suspense. I don’t always read this kind of book, which is why I’m so drawn to it. And I think it’s a perfect read for the Fall and Halloween.

 

Archenemies

Please be good. Please be good. You don’t know how much I want this book to be good. 😂 I adore Marissa’s writing. I truly do. But the cliffhanger at the end of Renegades has kept me on my toes ever since I read it. I love dark little heart Nova, and I can’t wait to see the internal battle she’ll more than likely have in this sequel. Bring it, Marissa!

 

Shadow of the Fox

I first fell in love with the cover. You can’t go wrong with cover love. But at the time, I was a little hesitant about putting it on my list. I’ve never heard about the author before. But I adore Japanese culture, and I keep seeing rave reviews. So I’m taking a chance on this book.

 

Stalking Jack the Ripper

Yes, this book has been on another one of my TTT posts. But I’m not passing up on this series. Nope. Not going to happen. I love historical fiction, and the author incorporates some of the most prolific characters and real-life people into her writing.
