Top Ten Tuesday: Bookmas Photos



Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is whatever I want. Guys, I don’t like choosing my own topic. I never know what to do! Since I have no other ideas, here are some festive photos of books. Yes, I have been photographing my TBR shelf instead of reading it . . . .

Book Haul: Ignore The Books Behind The Curtain



Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. I get to show off all the books I’ve gotten recently. I’m supposed to be on a book-buying ban, but these books were all trades, gifts, or giveaway wins. They don’t count, right? Let’s pretend they’re not sitting in my bedroom right now. They don't exist!

Top Ten Tuesday: Fictional Families & Friends



Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is platonic relationships. Here are ten novels where romantic love takes a back seat (or doesn’t make an appearance). These books are all about the friends and families. I separated them into vague age groups for you because I’m helpful like that.

Tag: The Nightmare Before Christmas



I was tagged by Bite Into Books to do The Nightmare Before Christmas Tag. This was my favorite movie when I was a kid. Of course I had to do the tag!

Top Ten Tuesday: Blogger Love



Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is thankfulness. I’m thankful for the blogosphere, so I’m going to give shout-outs to some awesome book blogs. I’m sorry that I had to leave a bunch of bloggers out. I swear it’s not personal. I follow a lot of blogs, and I had to limit myself somehow. These are the first blogs that popped into my head.

Review: Vengeful By V.E. Schwab


Vengeful By V.E. Schwab


Series: Villains #2
Pages: 478
Genre: Adult Science Fiction
Publication date: September 2018

Eli Ever and Victor Vale were only medical students when their mutual discovery that near-death experiences can, under the right conditions, manifest extraordinary abilities.

They were best friends, and rivals, and then enemies. They were dead, then alive, and then—Eli killed Victor, once and for all.

Or so he thought—but Sydney Clarke felt otherwise, and used her own superpower to tip the scales. Now, a trio hides in the shadows, while another takes advantages of post-death life to take over the city of Merit.

If there can be life after death—will there be calm after vengeance, or will chaos rule?

Have you ever learned a strange fact or seen an unusual thing and thought, I wish there were more books about that? It happens to me all the time. Authors, if you’re listening, here are four ancient bad decisions that I wish somebody would write about. (Or take inspiration from. I’m not picky!)

Top Ten Tuesday: Great American Reads That I Haven’t Read




Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week, we’re doing last week’s topic because I’ve been terrible at following the rules lately. Today we’re talking about backlist books that I want to read. This topic is too big! Seriously, I have a Pinterest board with 400 backlist books that I haven’t gotten to yet. I needed a way to narrow down the topic, so we’re going to focus on the PBS show The Great American Read. When they announced their top 100 books, I was surprised that I’d actually read most of them. Go me! But, here are ten Great American Reads that I still need to get to.

Top Ten Tuesday: What I’m Reading For Nonfiction November



Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. I don’t usually completely ignore the Top Ten Tuesday prompt, but that’s what’s happening today. Nonfiction November has just started. I wanted to show you what I’m reading. Some of these books are a little depressing because “A little depressing” is basically my aesthetic.

Book Haul: It Was An Accident, I Swear



Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. I get to show off all the books I’ve gotten recently. I didn’t mean to get new books, but somehow that’s what happened. In my defense, one of them was a preorder and one was free. The other three . . . I have no excuses.

Top Ten Tuesday: How I’d Die In A Horror Story




Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is whatever I want. I love horror novels, but I’d be a terrible horror protagonist. I’d for-sure be the first character to die. In honor of Halloween and my complete incompetence, let’s look at 10 ways I’d die in a horror story.

I was tagged by Elley the Book Otter to do the Halloween Creatures 2.0 Tag. Let’s do it! This post has spoilers, so tread carefully. I’ll give you a warning when I’m about to spoil something.

Top Ten Tuesday: Why I Love Your Villain

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is all about villains. Lucky me, I finally have an excuse to use all of the Ramsay Bolton memes!  He’s not the best example of what I'm talking about in this post, but I have memes! Also, he's the most demented villain I’ve come across. If you haven’t read/watched Game of Thrones, you should. Almost everybody is a villain!

Let’s be honest, sometimes the bad guys are more interesting than the good guys. Villains do whatever they want. That’s what makes them so much fun to read about. Here are 10 things that will make me love a villain.

Top Ten Tuesday: Longest Books I’ve Read



Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is the longest books I’ve ever read. Honestly, the longest book I’ve ever read is probably a boring textbook that I’ve blocked from my memory. I was forced to read many 1000+ page textbooks in school. Since I no longer own them and don’t remember their titles, I’m only going to list books that I definitely remember reading.

Top Ten Tuesday: Stephen King Books That I Haven’t Read



Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is books from my favorite authors that I haven’t read yet. Since it’s now technically fall—and therefore spooky season—I thought I’d focus on Stephen King books. I’ve read about 30 of his books in my lifetime. Here are ten that I still need to read.
