Top 10 Tuesday: Books with Long Titles

A weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This may be somewhat of a subjective topic/theme. Whose to say what’s long to me is long to someone else? I think there are definitely a few titles that immediately come to mind for a lot of readers, though. I guess we’ll see for sure… 😉

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).

My Top (Contemporary) Reads of 2017!

Is it that time already? I can’t even believe it! I feel like 2017 just started and here we are, diving right into 2018! (But that also means my birthday is soon. I’ll be 29! That doesn’t seem old to me and yet…it does, haha.)

I know this topic was a Top Ten Tuesday post a couple of weeks ago. But I wanted to wait to do it because it wasn’t quite the end of the year… But here I am, writing it just as 2018 started. Typical me. I wait until the last minute because who knows if a late December read will be included in this list?!

Anyway, here’s how I chose my top reads. I went to Goodreads and chose the books I rated 4.5 and 5 stars. That doesn’t mean they were all released in 2017–just that I read them this year. 🙂 There was actually quite a lot, so I thought I’d focus this post on the genre: today’s is contemporary.

Also, my goal was to read 90 books this year, and I surpassed it by a handful of books! Yay! I only DNFed 3 books this year, too.

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Recs for Those on the Fence about YA Contemporary

Top Ten Tuesday has been on a hiatus ever since Jamie at The Broke and the Bookish has been on maternity leave. But I’m glad to be back with the themes, and I’m really excited to share this one with you. The overall topic is “10 Book Recommendations for _________” and you can insert whatever you want. I decided to go with YA contemporaries since I used to not read them at all. But over the past year or so, I’ve definitely read some great ones, and I wanted to share some of my favorites with you! 🙂

May 2017 Book Haul & Wrap-up!

May was a slow month for me. I’m not complaining, trust me. A while ago, I stopped posting on my bookstagram every day, which relieved me to no end. I feel as if I can finally enjoy that community again without the pressures of competing against bigger, better accounts. Anyway, that’s it’s own story.

Because of that, I’ve read a little slower and didn’t buy as many books. Well, that isn’t really the main reason… Most of it stems from ~adulting~ (I mean, I just paid hundreds of dollars to get brand new tires for my car! Bleh!) and saving for vacation next month since I’ll be on summer break.

ARC Review: “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” by Maurene Goo

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, when I picked up I Believe in a Thing Called Love, you knew I absolutely loved it. I read it quickly, which just means I absolutely loved it. When I heard about Maurene’s Goo book, I instantly added it to my TBR. I mean, could you really go wrong with a Korean character who created her own K-drama formula in order to get a guy to like her? The answer might surprise you.
