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?

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.
