Good afternoon, fellow book readers! I don't know about you, but I love doing book tags and challenges, whether they're on a blog, or Instagram Reels, or TikTok -- they're so fun and random! I've participated in so many tags and challenges, but I've never created my own before. Until TODAY! One of my favorite activities, maybe once or . . .
Top Ten Tuesday was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week, a new Top Ten list topic will be posted for everyone to weigh-in on. This week: Books Written Before I Was Born (These can be books you’ve read or want to read!) Finding books on my TBR older than . . .
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. This week: Books On My Winter 2020-2021 TBR (or summer if you live in the southern hemisphere). I live in the Northern hemisphere, so winter is (almost) here. I mean, the weather is . . .
Though I am one of the most structured, organized, plan-loving people I know, I've never been able to stick to a strict TBR. I know a lot of bookworms plan out their month/year with a TBR list, but that doesn't really work for me. I have a TBR shelf on Goodreads to remember which books I want to read, but I can't take those books and . . .
Back in January, I wrote a post regarding 2020 releases that I was looking forward to. But, of course, during the first month of the new year, not all titles being released that year are finalized nor announced. Plus, COVID pushed a lot of release dates. I meant to update my post around April or May, but with July fast approaching, I . . .
Since joining in 2014, I added a crazy number of books to my TBR. Like, 600+ books. And many of them were really crappy-looking books that only had, like, 50 ratings. I'm not saying you should only read megahits... Personally, I usually don't find independently-published books very good. I've read quite a few of them, and to be frank, they are . . .
Hello, my lovely followers and fellow bloggers! Sorry it's been so long! I've recently started a new job---which has taken up most of my time---and I've been bogged down with Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter for, like, 2 weeks. I hate it so much I'm not even going to review it. I will finish it, though, because I swore on . . .
I thought I'd have a lot more free time once I graduated college -- no more classes, organizations, events, meetings, blah, blah, blah. Well, all that has been replaced with cooking, cleaning, jogging, job hunting, car hunting, apartment hunting... WHEN will I have time to read!? HOW can I possibly tackle my ever-growing TBR?????? I…
Happy 2017, everybody! Last year was the first I've struggled with my TBR pile. I accumulated so many books and they've just been lying on the shelf ever since. This year, I want to take control and try to read those books before buying new books. It's going to be hard, and I'm probably going to…
