Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books on my Fall TBR

This TTT topic could not have come at a more PERFECT time. I almost never plan my books ahead of time. I read whatever I feel like reading whenever I feel like reading it. I did plan books this month because I just so happen to be doing my own Series September Reading Challenge, but that's also the reason I now have a whole list of books I didn't get to read when I stumbled upon them the past few...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Water

So this week's topic is water. Water? WATER? WATER??? Do you even know what this topic did to me?! There are even more book covers with water than there are with keys! There are covers with boats and mermaids and beaches and storms and my poor indecision-addled mind couldn't take it! Then I got all perfectionist about how cool it was that they were almost all blue, but the shades of blue didn't...

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Random, Little Things that Make Me Extra Happy in Books

I couldn't really think of a good title for this top ten list because it's a bit random. I just really wanted an excuse to talk about how much I love it when characters make fun of other characters for brooding and saw my chance. Don't judge me. We all have them though, the random, little things that just kind of tickle us inside, make us squeal, make us laugh out loud every time, make us mark...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Keys

Guys, I think I have a problem. I think I'm just going to officially up my Cover Characteristics book choices to ten because choosing five? I can't do it, I tell you, I can't do it! Every single time I think to myself, I'm never even going to be able to find five covers, and then I end up with like thirty tabs of possible covers open at once plus five more of books I found when I inevitably got...
