Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype

Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl formerly hosted at The Broke and the Bookish   Happy Tuesday, Wormies! I’m really excited with the topic for this week because it’s all about HYPE! I absolutely abhor hype and I avoid it like the plague. I honestly don’t read these books until all the books have been released or at least until the hype has died down. I also don’t read reviews on these books because I don’t want to see “squeee” reviews because this will taint my enjoyment in the book when I am ready to read it. Harry […]

5-Star Books I’ve Read So Far in 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl formerly hosted at The Broke and the Bookish   Happy Tuesday, Wormies! I am making my own theme for today because I don’t read a lot of novellas and I really had a hard time coming up a list for that topic today. So I decided to list eight of my 5-star reads this year so far! I am only including books published (or will be published) this year, and I am not including rereads to this list.   5-Star Books I’ve Read So Far in 2018 When a Duke […]

Series I Don’t Plan on Finishing

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl formerly hosted at The Broke and the Bookish   Happy Tuesday, Wormies! Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday post where I share a list of the series I don’t plan on finishing at all! Why? Well, there are multiple reasons and one of those reasons is frustration with where the series is going. There are going to be some popular series in this list so please don’t attack me if I list your absolutely favorite series here. I’m still entitled to my own opinion and badgering me to finish a […]

10 Books on My Summer TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl formerly hosted at The Broke and the Bookish   Happy Tuesday, Wormies! It’s summer and here in SoCal, the weather is absolutely gorgeous! Especially for spending time outdoors! I’ve also been having lunch outside the office and lounging in the outdoor lounge area at work, and it’s been an awesome way to get in some reading done! As most of you know, I’m a mood reader and any TBR list that I put out will most likely not be read! But never fear, I am not holding myself rigid with […]

Books That Awaken the Travel Bug In Me

Books That Awaken the Travel Bug In Me

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl formerly hosted at The Broke and the Bookish   Happy Tuesday, Wormies! It’s been an awesome week in the reading front and I am excited to share the books that made me want to travel to these places. I guess it’s because the descriptions of these places are so vivid that I feel like I’m actually in that place. Books really take you to places you’ve never been!   Paris, France Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely This book made me feel like I was in Paris! The places Joy went were so […]

Books I Initially DNF’d but Ended Up Loving

Books I Initially DNF’d but Ended Up Loving

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl formerly hosted at The Broke and the Bookish   Happy Tuesday, Wormies! I submit to you books that I initially DNF’d but I ended up LOVING! See, I’m one of those readers who DNF a few chapters in when a book is not catching my attention. But for one reason or another, I picked them up again and ended up loving them! Some of these books have ended up being 5-star reads! So, I have since learned that even when I DNF a book, that doesn’t mean I will never read them […]

10 Books I’d Slay a Lion to Get Early

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl formerly hosted at The Broke and the Bookish   Happy Tuesday, Wormies! There are books that you just can’t wait to get your hands on. I’m pretty lucky than most since I receive ARCs from some of my favorite authors! Unfortunately, that also means that I STILL have to wait until I can purchase a physical copy of their books! Now, I normally don’t purchase physical books but for these, I am making an exception! The Wicked and the Wallflower by Sarah MacLean (June 19, 2018) This book is the […]
