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!
Happy Friday! I managed to read this book shortly after my spring classes, and boy does it pack a punch. If you're a fan of action, this book has plenty of it. Westerfeld's books are vastly different from what I usually enjoy, but somehow they always manage to sink in so that my mind is always thinking ahead, generating theories, and speculating while I'm reading. I'm usually not right when I try to anticipate, but it's a fun process nonetheless!
Do I dare try to set a TBR list for this month? Usually, my reading picks up a bit with the summer, but this year I actually don't anticipate spending any more time reading than I did in the first half of the year. I've never taken classes over the summer before (except for one... Continue Reading →
Today is the first Friday in June, so it's time to participate in First Line Friday! This edition is extra fun because the book I'm highlighting is a new release I'm excited about: book 3 in Lauren Salisbury's Legacy Chronicles series. Because my summer classes also started this week, I haven't started reading this book yet, but I hope to soon! It's going to be high on my Summer TBR list, at least.
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! Reader, I just had the best three-day weekend. I didn't do anything exceptional; the most ambitious thing I did was get a haircut (for the first time in approximately three years). Most of the time was spent on things like filling out my taxes, bleaching my shower, and cooking. But it was so... Continue Reading →
How about something different this Monday? I was tagged by Books with Brogan back in February to do the Selena Gomez book tag. I'll admit I'm not a huge Selena Gomez fan, but this tag looks like fun! The Rules Thank the person who tagged you and leave a link to their blog - Thanks,... Continue Reading →
Hello, Reader! Today I'm back with another Spell the Month in Books. Starting next month, I'm going to experiment with making Spell the Month a formal linkup, so if you have enjoyed these posts and are considering writing your own, keep an eye out! I still have a couple different hosting platforms to research, but... Continue Reading →
I didn't realize when I drafted this post that it would go out on MLK Day. While I don't have an entire worthy tribute in me, I do want to take a minute to acknowledge this day before moving on to the bulk of my post. In the midst of the current political chaos, it is comforting to read and remember the hopeful words of Dr. King. Perhaps someday we will get closer to his dream.
How do you feel about poetry, Readers? If you're not a fan, don't click away yet - this post isn't ALL about poetry, but it does play a part. Today's photo prompt in Elza Kinde's #NewYearsReads2021 challenge is "Book Spine Poetry." I love seeing favorite book titles used to make something new and fun! I've seen this a few times before on Instagram (more specifically, bookstagram), but I have never given it a shot myself. But, I decided this time I would try. I had a blast searching through my shelves for inspiration and the best lines, and I am happy with what I came up with. I ended up making two little "poems," and I couldn't decide which I liked better, so I am going to share them both Let me know what you think in the comment section!
