Top Ten Tuesday: Auto-Buy Authors

Top Ten Tuesday: Auto-Buy Authors

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish This post is related to my last week’s post about authors I’ve read the most books from.  Of course, they are also my auto-buy authors (in my preferred genre, of course).  I know not all of the books written by one author are my favorites and some, I have even hated, but these authors are my auto-buys even if one or two books have let me down. These are my top ten, in no particular order. Lisa Kleypas – One of my favorite authors is obviously on my auto-buy list, yeah?  Of course, […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I’ve Read The Most Books From

Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I’ve Read The Most Books From

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish I have been reading for quite a long time and I am not including Sweet Valley or Nancy Drew to the mix because I think I have read more books on those than any series/author ever. While compiling this list, I noticed that majority of these authors are also my one-click authors!  And yes, I also have a majority of their books!  I am only counting those authors that I have read more than 10 books. LISA KLEYPAS – She was one of the very first historical romance authors that I read and I […]

Bookish Discussions: Required Reading in School

Bookish Discussions: Required Reading in School

Back in school – well, middle school and high school, we didn’t get a lot of required reading, aside from the smattering of Filipiniana (books written by Filipinos).  Oh, did I mention that I did not grow up in the United States?  Well, now you know.  So back then, we weren’t required to read any novels but we did have a library day for an hour once a week (so sad, yeah?) where we can borrow a maximum of 2 books for a week.  You might say that it was the highlight of my week despite only having those old […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Fairytale Retellings I’ve Read/Want To Read

Top Ten Tuesday: Fairytale Retellings I’ve Read/Want To Read

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish I love fairy tales.  I even love them once they have been revamped and reworked into new stories!  The last few years have been good to fairy tale retellings from books to movies (I’m talking about you Maleficent) and I am quite excited what authors are going to come up next! Fairy Tales I’ve Read The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer – I want to talk about this series as a whole because I love how each book is a retelling of a different fairy tale.  I love that each story is unique […]

Bookish Discussions: Why I Prefer Reading 1 or 2 Star Reviews

Bookish Discussions: Why I Prefer Reading 1 or 2 Star Reviews

    One and 2 star reviews – the horror!  I know there are a lot of authors who detest the dreaded 1 or 2 star reviews (and DNF reviews) but as a reader, I prefer reading these reviews.  Now, I am not saying that I want to read those that have author bashing and insults and those that are just irrelevant to the whole book – I am talking about those reviews that have meaning, that outline or point out the things that do not work for the reader or the plot as a whole.  I follow blogs that have those […]
