Happy Friday! I'm trying something new today and participating in the Classic Remarks linkup. The host shares a prompt relating to classic books in advance, and then you write a post or comment with your response. I have mixed feelings about classic books, but it's fun to talk about them and to hear a variety of opinions! Today's prompt is an interesting question. It really got me thinking about books I have read and disliked, and what I would change if given the chance. I've kept my post relatively brief (I don't want to bore you with all the details of my opinions today!), and I invite you to consider the following prompt and share your own answer as well:
I have an exciting book to share with you today! If you saw my June TBR & Goals post or if you've followed Reviews From the Stacks for a few years, you may know that June is time for the Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge hosted by Tarissa of In the Bookcase and that I love this month-long reading challenge! There are so many good books by, about, or otherwise related to Louisa May Alcott. This challenge is the perfect push to read them for myself and a way to read about similar books that others are reading and enjoying (or not enjoying).
Hello and welcome back, Reader! Today's post is linking up with Sam at Taking on a World of Words for WWW Wednesday to talk about the books that are at the front of my mind this week. Even though summer classes are in full swing, the fact that I am only taking two this time (compared... Continue Reading →
My summer classes begin tomorrow, as does my library's Summer Reading program. I'm looking forward to both; it has been very nice to catch up a bit over the past few weeks, though. Mom and I even went to the zoo last week, just because! Today in the real world I will be waxing my car, grocery shopping, and finishing up a few things that need to be wrapped up before classes restart. Here on the blog, I'm wrapping up all of my reading & related activities from the month of May!
Happy Monday! Today I'm taking a look at the next ten books on my TBR (to be read) list, hoping to weed out any that I no longer want to read. There's a lot of variety in this batch, so stick around and maybe you'll find something to add to your own list! Explanation: It... Continue Reading →
Within a week of the end of my Spring semester I had nearly an unreasonable amount of materials checked out from the library. A large portion, however, were cookbooks or gardening books which I flipped through and soon returned (or at least set in a pile to return a few at a time, so as... Continue Reading →
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme currently hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. The three W’s stand for the following questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next? To participate, make a post or comment answering the three questions, link up to the host (Sam)’s post, and check out what others are reading and talking about! I typically participate once a month, approximately in the middle of the month, as a halfway check-in on my monthly reading goals.
It has become apparent that my TBR (to be read) list has gotten nearly out of hand. Therefore, I have decided to do a post featuring ten books from it approximately every other week. As I go through the list, I will evaluate each book and decide whether or not it still belongs. Who knows, perhaps as my list (hopefully) shrinks, you will find a few books to add to your own!
