This topic was way harder than I thought. Also, there seem to be so many titles with the word “red” in them, I tried to not include all of them!Continue reading

Top 10 Tuesday: Books That Ought to Be on Screen
Initially, I started this post as a “Books to Movies” theme, but the more I thought about it, the more I think so many good books would make great TV series, too, because I feel like TV series has the chance to explore the characters and story more.
Top 10 Tuesday: Best Books I Read in 2018
Happy New Year! It’s officially 2019! How wild!
I always feel nostalgic looking back at the previous year, even more so since I feel like a lot happened in my personal life, too. Husband and I bought a house, I got a new job, I became an aunt for the third time (but my first nephew!)… So yeah. 🙂 Anyway, that’s not why y’all came here is it? To read about how sappy I am! lol

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.

T5W: Best Books I’ve Read (So Far) in 2018
Gosh, this means we’re actually half-way through 2018! How is that possible? I can believe it though, because it’s always 100+ degrees outside where I live. So yes, summer is NIGH and won’t disappear any time soon. 😬
To determine the best books I’ve read so far, I chose the books I rated 5 stars on Goodreads. I was going to go with 4.5 or higher, but I have more than 5 of those! But at 5 stars, there are exactly 5. Haha. The book gods are in my favor!

ARC Review: “The Astonishing Color of After” by Emily X.R. Pan
Where do I even begin? I was immediately drawn to this book because of the main character who is biracial (half-white, half-Asian) like myself. Little did I know what a wild and heartfelt journey this book would be.
The great thing is that I won this review copy from a giveaway hosted by TheNovl. I was completely shocked when it came because 1) I never win anything, and 2) little did I think it would be one of my most anticipated releases of 2018!

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.
