    Top 5… Authors: K-O

    Good evening bookworms! Late again, but this week it’s my fault… Today’s Top 5 Tuesday is authors from K-O, which is a continuation from last week’s topic! As I mentioned before, I’m also going to try and not do the obvious choices for letters (there won’t be any Jay Kristoff’s or Holly Black’s on my list) so long as I can find someone else (although you can bet that Maggie Stiefvater will be in the S spot)! Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the super lovely Shanah over at the…

    Top 5… Authors: F-J

    Good evening bookworms! I came onto WP to check where my post was it, but it’s DISAPPEARED!! 😱 So I’m drafting again, but it will never be as good as what I wrote last week (probably a lie, but also, who did I put for I before?!), and I’m late for today!! *sorry!!* Today’s Top 5 Tuesday is authors from F-J, which is a continuation from last week’s topic!

    February ’20 book haul

    Good morning bookworms!! It’s time for the monthly book haul!! And honestly, the total is OVER my ten book monthly limit, but it’s kind of not my fault…?! Book haul categories are as follows: book boxes book purchases (book mail, in-store, digital* and gifts) review copies (book mail and digital), and bookish items (book related, but not actual books). * Not counting Kindle Unlimited I subscribe to three monthly boxes: OwlCrate, FairyLoot and the book-only subscription for LitJoy. In February I skipped OwlCrate, but the other two didn’t arrive either…

    February ’20 wrap up and March TBR

    Good morning bookworms! It’s time for the monthly wrap-up! During January… I got sick and had 2 migraines (new record). I also didn’t read anything for 11 days. That’s a pretty good record. Reading though? I read 6 books… which is the equal lowest number of books read per month in the last two years. (June 2019 was also 6 books!) Also, two of the books that I finished were even on my TBR for February, so I basically won because that never happens! However, I’m trying not to beat…

    10 amazing fantasy classics you should read (one day)

    Good morning bookworms! Just in case you haven’t heard me scream about this previously, YA wasn’t really a thing when I was growing up. You had board books for toddlers, picture books for children, then like this weird sort of tween stage (now lovingly referred to as middle grade) where you read 846 books from series such as The Babysitters’ Club (including the mysteries, the super specials, Logan’s stories, the super mysteries, AND Little Sister if you got in on that), Sweet Valley High, Sweet Valley Uni, The Saddle Club,…
