Top 10 Tuesday: Book-to-Screen Adaptations I Want

A weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

We all have our own unique opinion on what makes a good book adaptation. I don’t watch a lot of TV (I don’t have cable), but I do have a few streaming services like Netflix, Disney+, and Amazon Prime. However, I find myself sinking into a book rather than a TV show and surely I’m not the only one?

I will say that once the pandemic started and I was working from home, I binged a show called “Call the Midwife” since it was available on Netflix. I don’t regret it because the show is so good.

Anyway, we’re not here to talk about my personal TV habits (as Isabelle from Animal Crossing remind us).

Top 10 Tuesday: Favorite Books from the Last 10 Years

TTT-Big2
A weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Writing this I feel…old, lol. I don’t quite think I was reading a lot of YA ten years ago; I really just read whatever sounded good.  Of course, that’s really how I read today, too. Anyway, today I’ll feature some of my favorite books that were published the last 10 years, but not necessarily ones I read during that year.

This list is probably way longer than you think it is, but stick with me.

ARC Review: “Dark of the West” by Joanna Hathaway

Dark of the West has been on my radar ever since I learned earlier last year that it’s comp title was The Winner’s Curse. Comp titles, or comparison titles, are 1-2 similar titles to the book. (Think of it as “If you liked these titles, you’d like [this book].”) Along with TWC, the other comp title is Code Name Verity, which is a book I haven’t read but one I’ve heard.

Anywho, DotW was pushed back by almost a full year when it got a cover redesign. There are some ARCs still floating around with the old cover on it (of a girl in a red dress, running, and a plane in the sky), but I’m quite glad the cover was redesigned; it has all these hints of things from the book.

I want to say a special thank you to the author, Joanna Hathaway, for sending me a copy. I won it in a giveaway she hosted, and I’m just so thrilled to have been able to get my hands on an early copy.

All quotes are taken from the ARC and may change in the final, finished copy.

‘Waiting on’ Wednesday: February ’19 Releases!

‘Waiting on’ Wednesday (WoW) is a book blog meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s really easy to participate: all you have to do is feature upcoming books you’re excited about! It doesn’t necessarily have to be for the next month–it can be any book–but I try to keep it simple because… You know, there are just so many books that release even in a single month. And to think I just feature some of my favorite YA ones…

Holy guacamole, how are we just a couple of weeks away from 2019? I felt like 2018 went on forever yet happened so quickly! How does time work?
