As mentioned in my previous First Impression Friday post, They Did Bad Things is June's book for the Fantastic Stranglings Book Club, run by Jenny Lawson at The Bloggess. (She's opening a bookstore in San Antonio called Nowhere Bookshop, and it's on my bucket list to visit at least once in my life!) I always try to … Continue reading Book Review: “They Did Bad Things” by Lauren A. Finny
This week's First Impression Friday belongs to yet another Fantastic Strangling book club book: They Did Bad Things by Lauren A. Forry. I am so excited by all of the books that have been chosen so far, and I am even more excited about the fact that all of them are newly-published, so I don't have … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “They Did Bad Things” by Lauren A. Forry
I've really been on a Kindle kick recently. I even went and bought a replacement charging cord for my Kindle Keyboard 3 (that's how old mine is!) because I got a few books I wanted to read. And some of them were on sale. One such book is this one, The Seven and a Half … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Seven and a Half Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle” by Stuart Turton
Maybe this whole quarantine thing will get me back on a regular blogging schedule. But who knows? I've just got to buckle down and do it, because man, do I miss it. Welcome back to Top 5 Tuesday, hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm! I have unfortunately missed the first few entries in this … Continue reading Top 5 Authors from K – O
Welcome back to Top Five Thursday, where Lauren procrastinates on her T5T post for two entire days before finally giving in and publishing it because Reddit isn't working. This week's topic continues our previous start of working our way through the alphabet with book titles! As always, we're brought to you by Shannah @ Bionic Book … Continue reading Top 5 Books That Start With F-G-H-I-J
I'm slowly trying to keep up with blogging (maybe the T5T posts are all I'm able to do for now, but I'm trying to get my thoughts together eventually!), so I'm back again with another prompt from Shanah. This week's theme (and the theme for the entirety of July!) has to do with what books … Continue reading Top 5 A-B-C-D-E Books
Oh no. No, no, no. I refuse to have to pick just five fantasy novels that I love. Especially because we all know what's going to make that number one spot. However, Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm has spoken, so now I've got to spend a few hours fretting over which books are going to make my list. … Continue reading Top 5 Fantasy Novels
Wait - what's this? It's a Top 5 Tuesday post (which may turn into a Top 10 Tuesday post!), on a Tuesday, on a blog that seems to have been dormant for a long time?! Welcome back to Top 5 Tuesday, hosted, as always, by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm. It looks as though this week has … Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 Books!
Welcome back to First Impression Friday, an installment I haven't done in a while because I am a slacker. That's okay, though, because I've also read five books in the past week and I'm hoping not to slow down anytime soon. This week's preview is for The Hazel Wood. I remember being super intrigued by the … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Hazel Wood” by Melissa Albert
Welcome back to Top 5 Tuesday, where for the month of February, Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm has challenged us to find books relating to the different Hogwarts houses. This week's house is Gryffindor, and while I'm a Ravenclaw, I can appreciate a good Gryffindor. (I'd better -- my boyfriend is one!) I will say … Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday: Gryffindor!
