Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Unique Book Titles

I think “unique” is a very subject word, so while you may not think these are unique, I do! So there’s that. 😛 Anyway, while I definitely buy books because of covers, I absolutely love book titles and finding the meaning behind them, whether it’s a direct quote from the book or speaks about the book as a whole.

T5W: Books I’ve Read Because of #bookstagram

I’ve always been an avid reader, but I wasn’t much of a collector. That is, until I joined the lovely community of readers on Instagram (also commonly referred to as #bookstagram and #bookstagrammers). I joined over 2 years ago, and wow, it’s been a great way to connect with other readers and to see how seriously talented photographers fellow bibliophiles are!

Anyway, I thought this was a fun topic because there are so many books I’ve picked up since I’ve seen them on Instagram–definitely some I would have never bothered to read otherwise!

T5W is a Goodreads group. You can check out the topics or join here.

Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite Minor Characters

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly blog meme started on Goodreads. You can check out (and join!) the group here!

Today’s topic is Favorite Minor Character, which some consider not the same as side characters. Truthfully, I’ve never really given it much thought. I think my mind just simple stuffs not main characters as side/minor characters. Anyway, I won’t think too hard on it and neither should you (unless you have some strong opinions about it, which feel free to leave a comment about it!).

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books I Loved Less/More Than I Thought I Would

You know when you read a book due to all the hype surrounding it? I mean, it’s one of those books you most likely would have never picked up anyways, but gosh, so many people are talking about it. And you, being you, decided you NEED to know why everyone else loves it?

Alas, even I fall into that trap. Well, okay, maybe it’s not a trap, but dangit, sometimes I’m so entangled it feels exactly like that!

Top Ten Tuesday: New-to-Me Authors I Read for the First Time in 2016

Yay! So I’m back to regular blogging now that NaNoWriMo is over! I’m currently working on a non-bookish post about my progress with NaNoWriMo and other things so keep an eye out for that soon!

Gosh, guys, I can’t believe it’s December already! I know people say that all the time but seriously, it’s almost Christmas! This makes me both excited and shocked that 2016 went by so quickly. But with the passing of December also comes January and… My birthday! I’ll be 28 in a little over a month. That’s crazy to think about to.

Top Ten Tuesday: All about the Villains!

Top Ten Tuesday is a book blog meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. Today’s theme is villains and can be anything ranging from top ten favorite/most compelling villains in books, top ten of the most vile villains/bad guys in books, top ten villains I secretly (or not so secretly) love, favorite tv villains, favorite comic book villains, ten “villains” of contemporary lit.

I think I’ll do a hodgepodge because I’ve actually never done a post about villains or even considered them for a long time so here goes!

Top Ten Tuesday: All about Audio(books)!

TTT was created by the Broke and the Bookish. Check out the other topics and don’t forget to leave your TTT so I can check it out! 🙂

So today’s TTT is all things audio. I could do 10 favorite audiobooks, albums, songs, bands, podcasts, whatever really. I’m going to focus on audiobooks. They don’t seem to get enough love but all the ones I’ve listened to are so good! And they really do a great job filling up the drive to and from work and home for me.

Top Ten Tuesday: My ALL TIME Favorite Books of YA Fantasy

Omg, this is so hard, where do I even begin?! I thought about doing just fantasy but the truth is, I don’t read a lot of non-YA fantasy. YA is my go-to genre in everything so I though I at least could do myself a favor (!!!) by picking fantasy as my sub-genre! Still difficult though because there’s so many good ones! Ahhhhhh.
