Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Circus

I am SO EXCITED about this week's topic! I mean, seriously: 1) Have you seen my bio? Even the mini one in the sidebar? 2) I used to do circus myself for a brief period of time---I even included a photo at the end! 3) I made this post even before I knew this would be an official topic because I just wanted to do this topic anyway. 4) Every single book on here came from either books I already own...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Bookish Goals for the New Year

Since I haven't said it yet, happy New Year to everyone! But here's the thing: I don't believe in New Year's resolutions. The concept behind them is great, but they backfire.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Words of Wisdom from Books I’ve read This Year

And considering I've...

This was a really slow, unproductive book week for me. I ended up starting three different books, all books I want to read, but they just weren't what I *felt* like at the time. I've hit another "I have 500 books and nothing to read" slump. (That sure didn't take long -_-) And I'm very much a mood reader. If I'm not in the right mood for a certain type of book, it can ruin what would otherwise be...
 

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...
