Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Would Be On My Syllabus If I Taught: Survive the Apocalypse 101

Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Would Be On My Syllabus If I Taught: Survive the Apocalypse 101

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish The last few years have seen an increased number of dystopia books – especially Young Adult!  That is mostly the genre that I prefer when reading YA so I have read quite a few.  I may not be a dystopian expert BUT if ever the apocalypse is knocking at our door, I may be persuaded to teach an Apocalypse 101 Class. Be an expert archer.  I mean, how else can you catch game or defend yourself?  When there is an apocalypse, knowing how to use a weapon is key to survival.  Book rec: The Hunger […]

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 […]

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 […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish I usually hesitate reading hyped books because more often than not, they tend to disappoint.  Same is true with movies, by the way.  So here are my top 10.  I may (or not) read them in the near future but I’m not really holding my breath. Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L. James – Can you say super hyped?  This made BDSM and erotica become mainstream and I still haven’t read it.  The worse thing about it is, my non-reader friends HAVE READ IT!  I started to read Fifty Shades of Grey and I […]
