Bookish Musings: How Do You Decide What to Read?

I often have a hard time deciding what to read because I'm just very indecisive in general. But somehow I manage, or I wouldn't ever actually read anything, haha. I always think it's fun though to learn about other people's reading habits, who's a mood reader, who sticks to a schedule, how you factor in reading challenges, if you have system, etc., so I thought this would make for a fun...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Random Books on My TBR

Does anyone else feel like we've been doing the same topic every week? I haven't even participated in some of the recent TTTs because I would just be using the same books. Plus, I don't pay attention to when books are released, I don't plan books ahead of time (which, perfectly enough, I'm going to have a whole post about tomorrow), and I have like 27 different lists that could be called TBRs...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring the Moon

So how perfect is this topic for a blog named Metaphors and *Moonlight*? Granted I went with the blog name because I like the night rather than the actual moon, but the moon is, you know, also nice. And kind of important. Just a little. (Did you know that, without it, our days would be shorter and the earth's axis would vary, causing extreme climate change like ice in Africa? I got curious lol....

Bookish Musings: Feminism and Double Standards in Books – Love Triangles

Time for another discussion post! But I decided to dive in deeper this time. This one is a lot more opinionated than the last because the topic is something that has been bothering me for quite sometime. That being said, I still love hearing different opinions because that's what discussion is all about! So whether you agree and want to go on a whole rant or disagree and want to explain why, I...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten 2016 Releases I’m Looking Forward To

I know this isn't the correct topic for this week, but honestly, I don't even pay attention to what books are released, nor do I actually schedule what books I want to read ahead of time. So 2015 releases I meant to get to but didn't is too difficult for me. But I never actually participated in any of the 2016 release posts! So I figured this would be a good time to do that since there are series...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Mirrors

Sometimes when I start searching for book covers, I think a topic will be easy, but it turns out to be difficult. Well, this time, I had the opposite problem. I couldn't find crap when I was actually looking. But then book covers with mirrors just started popping up everywhere. And since I start most of my posts ahead of schedule, I just kept bookmarking webpages until I finally compiled them...
