I definitely think my tastes have changed ever since I started reading. That might seem like a no brainer, but being part of the book community on social media like Twitter and Instagram have really made me pick up books I wouldn’t otherwise pick up or even have a very generic opinion about bookish things.

T5W: Favorite SFF Creatures

You know, I’m not sure I’ve given this much thought before. I think that’s mainly because I hardly ever get asked the question, and oftentimes we focus on favorite characters rather than favorite creatures. So… Let’s do this.

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.

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.
