The 2017 Cybils Award Winners have been announced! In case you don’t remember, I had the privilege of being a judge this year in the YA Fiction category and was able to prioritize some AMAZING books from 2017 because of it. We wrapped up our judging responsibilities over the weekend, and the winners were announced today! Hurray!Read More »
Hey hey, it’s Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is run by The Broke and the Bookish, and I’ve loved making it a (semi) regular post on this blog! This week, I’m talking about my favorite books of 2017, because good lord, the year is almost over. How did that happen?? I couldn’t narrow my list down to ten books (shocker, I know), but I think I did okay. So without further ado, here are my top 17 books that I read in 2017. (They weren’t all released in 2017, but most were.)Read More »
Hey hey, it’s Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is run by The Broke and the Bookish, and I’ve loved making it a regular post on this blog! This week, we’re talking about book titles – which is something I love talking about! As a writer, titles are really tough for me, so I find other authors’ titles fascinating. Let’s jump right in and talk about them! I’ll give a little explanation as to why I love the uniqueness of the title along with each of my picks. Happy Tuesday!Read More »
Hey hey, it’s Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is run by The Broke and the Bookish, and I’ve loved making it a regular post on this blog! This week, we’re talking about the best book boyfriends and girlfriends, and I’m going to tell you, I go both ways on this one. Meaning about half on this list are boys and half are girls. Because you know what? I like variety in my books. And I like love stories. And I’m trying to read diversely. And have I mentioned I like love stories? All of them. All the love.
Anyway, so these are in no particular order, because ranking them would be cruel. Oh, and it’s the boyfriend/girlfriend of that particular main character, which I’ll try to explain briefly for each one.
Happy Hump Day – it’s Top 5 Wednesday! As a reminder, Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly roundup of cool/fun bookish things that is hosted by Sam over at Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. You can visit the Goodreads group for topics (and such, as Sam always says). This topic was super difficult for me, not because I don’t want my favorite books to become movies, but because I mostly read YA and don’t know very many young actors anymore! So we’re just going to go with it. I’m sorry I’m casting some adults as teenagers. I know, I know – these aren’t realistic. But this is my fancast, so there! 😛Read More »
