Happy June, followers! Today marks the halfway point of 2019, so I thought I'd update my reading progress this year. I found the Mid-Year Freak Out tag online and decided to use that as my model, even though no one tagged me. It appears the tag was originally created by ReadLikeWildfire and Earl Grey Books, so . . .
June has arrived. For many, this month marks the beginning of Summer. Warm weather, no school, tons of ice cream. But for some, June has a bigger importance. It's Pride Month. And I don't want this post to be about politics, but this year, Pride Month is being celebrated in the wake of disappointing movements by the government to limit . . .
Ryan and Gabby have been best friends since they first met freshman year of high school, though the two couldn't be more different. Ryan is Mr. Popular---charming personality, extremely outgoing, and a budding hockey star. Gabby, on the other hand, is just plain awkward---she has extreme social anxiety, hates parties, and would rather stay behind . . .
Ready for a throwback? I'm not! My early reviews are godawful. Not that my current reviews aren't, but my first ones are the worst. At least it shows I've made some progress, if only little. And I have way better taste in books now... Please kee in mind I was a teenager when writing these! And please feel free to share your own Top Ten Tuesdays in . . .
It's hard to believe we're already on the third month of 2019. How are your reading challenges going? I've read 8 books so far, which isn't exactly impressive, but at least I'm on track! I may not read as much as my other fellow book lovers (seriously---I follow some people who manage to read 200+ books a year...), but I do have some tips if . . .
There are so many great books coming out this year that I need to get my hands on. I have a lot of books from previous years that I really want to catch up on, especially the classics. But I also want to dedicate time for new releases and stay up-to-date with literature. Luckily, I found out today that, at work, I can . . .
As I was sitting around this evening reading The Night Circus, I was reminded of how extremely annoyed I am with the cover. Not the art or anything, but the physical design of the cover itself. Like, first of all, why the giant hole in the middle? Not necessary. And second (and even worse), why is the cover a millimeter shorter than the . . .
Back in January, I wrote about how I was thinking about trying audiobooks and bookish podcasts. Well, I'm here to tell you that I did try both of these. In fact, it quickly became the best part about my job. I did listen to the So Many Damn Books podcast for a while, but then Goodreads kept throwing my stupid reading challenge in my . . .
I do love movies, but one of my favorite hobbies is binge-watching shows on Netflix and Hulu, and as the above blurb mentions, shows are finally coming back! Yet another reason fall is the best season of all. And yes, it is fall. When PSLs come back, it's officially fall. I don't care what your calendar . . .
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week, she will post a new Top Ten list topic for everyone to weigh-in on.
