T5W: Most Disappointing Reads of 2018

I don’t normally discuss books I dislike. Half the time I can’t even remember what they are because I just push them out of my mind (lol) to make room for other books. So truthfully, trying to even think of disappointing reads was a bit of a struggle, and thank Goodreads for helping me.

Most of these books I rated 2 stars or less, though there is one exception…

T5W: (SFF) Book Series I Always Recommend

This is a spin on the actual topic which is “Books to Give _______ as Gifts.” The blank can be filled in with whatever you want… “Books to Give Parents as Gifts.” “Books to Give a Hufflepuff as Gifts,” etc. I wanted to do this spin because when people are asking for recommendations, I almost always recommend the following books. With Christmas around the corner, it’s really the perfect time to give them all as gifts!

T5W: Books for My Younger Self

I’ve always been a reader. Well, duh, you might be thinking, but the thing is I never gave much of a thought to what I read. I picked up whatever sounded interesting. Now that I’m older, with the boom of social media and me following more bookish accounts on both Twitter and Instagram, I have become a bit…choosier with what I read. I don’t mean that in a bad way, but I often time do follow the bandwagon and read the “popular” books.

But I’ve come across some books that I really wish had been around when I was a teenager. Maybe I would have felt less awkward or…whatever if I had read them. But I’m glad I get the chance to talk about them today.

T5W: Summer Vacation Books

Technically, today’s Top 5 Wednesday post is supposed to be about books that feature road trips, but to be honest, I can’t really think of a lot that fit the topic. Instead I decided to feature books that take place during summer vacation in general.

Today’s my last week of summer vacation. Next week I hit the ground running at work after 4 weeks off! I figured it’s a good way to reminisce about my own time off. 🙂

T5W: Best Books I’ve Read (So Far) in 2018

Gosh, this means we’re actually half-way through 2018! How is that possible? I can believe it though, because it’s always 100+ degrees outside where I live. So yes, summer is NIGH and won’t disappear any time soon. 😬

To determine the best books I’ve read so far, I chose the books I rated 5 stars on Goodreads. I was going to go with 4.5 or higher, but I have more than 5 of those! But at 5 stars, there are exactly 5. Haha. The book gods are in my favor!

Top 5 Wednesday: Books I Disliked But Love to Discuss

Here’s the truth: I don’t actually discuss a lot about the books I disliked. They become a distant memory in my mind. Mainly because I didn’t like them! 🤭 But if someone were to ask me why I didn’t like a particular book, I don’t mind saying why. That’s discussing, right?
