Top Ten Tuesday: Summer TBR

Top Ten Tuesday: Summer TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week’s theme was Beach Reads but instead I decided to do my Summer TBR 1) Timekeeper by Tara Sim.

Hi everyone. I’m feeling some major burnout and just generally down today, so I’ll make this short. First, Alexia is taking a hiatus due to some family issues, so it will just be me for a bit. However, I think I’ll be taking the next week off from blogging and possibly social media because ugh, I’m just really, really not doing well. Anyway, the last couple weeks have been mostly boring. A few trips to the library, a physical therapy […]

What I think I’m most amazed by is the author’s gift […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Things On Our Reading Wish List

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week’s topic: Things On Our Reading Wish List bekka’s picks 1. Historical fiction not set in Europe or the US. I feel like most YA historicals come in just a few categories: 1920s New York; Middle Ages/Renaissance Europe; World War II. I’d love to see other places or time periods, particularly Africa and South America. 2. Aliens. I admit that I don’t read a ton of science fiction, […]
