Update: Life and Books (12/30/18)

It's December 31st! One year is ending, and a new one is beginning.

I've already shared with you all my favorite covers and favorite characters from books I read in 2018, so that means... it's finally time to share my favorite books! I don't know why I keep calling these posts "Top Ten" when I never manage to stop at just ten. My blog is just full of lies. It sounds good as a post title though, you know? Anyway, I'm excited, as I always am for this post, because...

Update: Life and Books (12/2/18)

I wanna start by letting my fellow bloggers know that I've not been avoiding you all! I've just not been doing a good job of bloghopping lately because I'm still having dental problems (here's the latest update about that---basically I've already been to 9 appointments and still have at least 10 or 11 more at the very minimum, including at least one minor surgery, but it'll probably turn out to...

Here's how it works: You must answer these questions without looking anything up on the internet and without looking at your bookshelves! That's it. Depending on your memory and books you've...
