Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Laugh Out Loud Book Blurbs

This was a hard post to put together because I only had three that I could think of off the top of my head. Aside from those, I'm lucky if I even vaguely remember what a book is about let alone whether or not I was entertained by its blurb. But TTT freebies are like the bane of my existence, and I couldn't think of anything else good, so I stuck with it. I looked through my TBR and checked out...
 

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...
 

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...
 

Bookish Musings: What Do You Listen To While Reading, Writing, and Blogging?

This is a very exciting post for me, guys, because it's my first discussion post ever! Hurrah! *cue the cheering* I decided, however, to keep it simple and talk about something everyone can join in on no matter what type of books you read or what you like/dislike when it comes to reading. And really, what is more universally loved than music? I love pairing books and music and think music is...
 

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. They put into our minds that, the moment we falter, the whole thing's a bust, and now we have to wait until next year to try again. But we don't! It doesn't have to be the first day of a new year to make a change. It doesn't...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree This Year

It's almost Christmas! Which means Santa is coming! Which means bookworms all around the world are putting the finishing touches on the list of books they want to get because, really, do we even include anything else on our lists? My book wishlist is entirely way too long, but I have somehow managed to rein ̶d̶e̶e̶r̶ it in and choose the ten I'd most love to get in paperback. You better be...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Read in 2015

I'm pretty sure I've already talked about all these books and series roughly 27 times each this year, but what can I say? They are my favorites! They're also the books that don't get the attention they deserve---something I keep trying to change! (Some of these first in series are free on Amazon, so check 'em out!) I have had an AMAZING book year though and am keeping my fingers crossed that next...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Male Characters from Books I’ve Read This Year (2015)

Unlike with female characters, there never seems to be a shortage of male characters I like. I often prefer a male protag, but, even as love interests and side characters, they can be just as great. Also, I find it amusing that only 6 of the 16 characters mentioned are normal humans. Not sure if that says more about my taste in books or my taste in men ;-) Anyway, these characters deserve a...
