Top Ten Tuesday: You Remind Me Of Me



Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is fictional characters who are similar to me. Yay! A narcissism post! Honestly, there aren’t many fictional characters who are like me because I’m way too squishy for life-threatening adventures. If I was a book character, readers would be treated to the thrilling experience of seeing me type on a computer while re-watching Game of Thrones. But, I’m going to give this list my best shot. Here are ten characters who remind me of me.

Top Ten Tuesday: Back-In-The-Day Book Reviews



Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is the first ten books I ever reviewed. I started writing book reviews in 2011 but didn’t get serious about it until 2014. I’ll happily show you which ten books I reviewed first, but I’m not linking to reviews. My early ones are too embarrassing. I might shrivel into a ball of humiliation and self-loathing if you saw them. My skills have definitely improved over the years.

You won’t be bored if you’re stuck inside with these books.

Tag: The Sunshine Blogger Award



Approximately one billion years ago, Renée @ The Global Bookworm tagged me for The Sunshine Blogger Award tag. I’m not going to follow all of the rules for the tag because there are too many, and I’ve done this several times before, but I’ll happily answer the questions that Renée asked. I love questions!

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



Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is characters I’d like to switch places with. Um . . . small problem. Most of the books I read are harrowing. I am not cut out for "harrowing!" I wouldn’t want to switch places with the characters because I’d die immediately. So, that’s what I’m talking about today. If I switched places with a fantasy character, here’s how I’d die.
