TTT: Books With Nature on the Cover

Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, which I'm writing in a panic before immediately publishing because I've run out of pre-scheduled TTT posts again and didn't realize it. This week's theme is brought to you, as always, by That Artsy Reader Girl, where the actual theme is really "flowers and foliage" but I wanted to … Continue reading TTT: Books With Nature on the Cover

Book Review: “The Librarian of Auschwitz” by Antonio Iturbe

I don't know what I expect to come out of books about the Holocaust. I think that maybe, with each new one that I touch and pull off the shelf and read, that maybe something different will happen - maybe this time, the main characters will be able to resist, will be able to do … Continue reading Book Review: “The Librarian of Auschwitz” by Antonio Iturbe

First Impression Friday: “The Night Country” by Melissa Albert

I just finished reading Tales of the Hinterlands and then re-reading The Hazel Wood so I could prepare myself for this book, and I realized that, at least before reading this book, I don't think the world needed this sequel. The Hazel Wood was such a complete book, with an ending just open enough that … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Night Country” by Melissa Albert

The Opposite Book Tag

Welcome back to Book Tag Thursday! I found this week's tag on Way Too Fantasy, and then followed the string of previous book tags back to Dreamland Book Blog, but it looks like the original one was a video on YouTube that is now private, so I can't link back to the original creator.

Welcome back to this week's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted as always by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week's theme is ten most recent reads, and I am excited to read everyone's lists this week, because I'm sure that there will be no two lists that are exactly the same!

Book Review: “My Sister, the Serial Killer” by Oyinkan Braithwaite

Remember when I said I was shocked at how fast this book seemed to go by? I finished the whole thing in an hour. I seem to remember it looking way longer whenever I spotted it on bookshelves at the store, but the secrets were revealed to the Kindle percentage tracker. If you've forgotten the … Continue reading Book Review: “My Sister, the Serial Killer” by Oyinkan Braithwaite

April Wrap-Up

I read __ books this month, which is still way below what I wanted to read. I'm hoping to up this count in May. I think I may tackle the Septimus Heap series just to give me something to look forward to with a definitive number of books to finish. Broken by Jenny LawsonHollow Kingdom … Continue reading April Wrap-Up
