Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is: Books We Loved When We Started Blogging. alexia’s picks 1. Ultraviolet by R. J. Anderson.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books We Couldn’t Get Through

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week’s topic: Boos We Couldn’t Get Through alexia’s picks 1. The Wood by Chelsea Bobulski.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Hidden Gems in Historical Fiction

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week’s topic is hidden gems in historical fiction bekka’s picks 1. And I Darken by Kiersten White.

It’s an alternate history in which Vlad the Impaler is a girl. There are queer characters in abundance, angsty romance, […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books for Reluctant Readers

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week’s topic is Books for Reluctant Readers bekka’s picks 1. The Abyss Surrounds Us by Emily Skrutskie. This is so cinematic and has elements of horror and science fiction movies that I think non-readers will connect with. For starters, there’s sea monsters, so I think that would draw anyone in. And for people who are afraid because they don’t see themselves in media too often, this is about […]
