Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is ten books I’m (hopefully) going to read this spring. These books have been sitting on my to-read shelf for way too long. I should probably make them a priority.

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.

Book Haul: Cybils Middlegrade Shortlist


Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. I get to show off all the books I’ve gotten recently. I’m currently a judge for the middlegrade division of the Cybils Award, so of course I had to acquire the shortlist. I’ve already read these books. I’ll review them after we pick the winner.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’m On The Fence About



Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is books I’m on the fence about reading. We’re supposed to talk about new releases, but honestly, I don’t pay a ton of attention to what’s coming out, so I’m going to focus on backlist books. Push me off the fence! Let me know which of these I should read and which I should strike from my list.

Top Ten Tuesday: 2018 Reading Failures




Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is books I meant to read in 2018 . . . but didn’t. There are so many books and so little time! I own all of these and promise to read them ASAP. (ASAP = sometime this year. Like I said, so many books!)
