Top 5 Wednesday: Characters on the Naughty List

I think I’ve done something fairly similar… Or maybe when I see this topic, all I can think about are villains? (I did make a Top 10 Tuesday post about villains a while back…) But I supposed this list could focus on general crappy characters, not necessarily villains.

So let’s do this!

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

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 Ten Tuesday: Books I Read because…

Technically, this is supposed to be “books I read because someone outside of the book community recommended it to me.” Truthfully, I don’t know a lot of people I read so no one’s really recommending series to me… I picked up so many books due to starting a bookstagram a little over a year ago. Without that community, I wouldn’t have picked up half of the books I currently love.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish blog. Don’t forget to leave your TTT and I’ll check it out! 🙂

I Met Sarah J. Maas and OMG.

I am super delayed in writing this post since it’s been nearly 3 weeks since I saw her but here I am! 🙂

I’ve been a fan of SJM since I read Throne of Glass some time last year. While I wasn’t overly excited about A Court of Thorns and Roses, I’ve been told I need to hold on and read A Court of Mist and Fury before I judge that series so… I’ll do that…eventually. 😛

I traveled to Watermark Books in Wichita, KS to see Sarah for her Empire of Storms tour. It’s a cute, local, independent bookstore in the city with a cute little café attached to it.
