Top Ten Tuesday: Summer TBR

Top Ten Tuesday: Summer TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Summer TBR. I’m terrible at setting up a TBR, whether it be for the month or for a readathon or whatever it is. Without fail, I always deviate from my pile. But I’m trying? I’m getting a little bit better. For the month of April, for instance, I made a TBR of about 5 books and read every one of them. And last week I […]

In Defense of Love Triangles

In Defense of Love Triangles

*Editing in to add two great posts by Gillian and Ashleigh on love triangles and why they’re awesome. We all have tropes and plot devices that we dislike. For some it’s alpha males, mean girls, or a dead character not actually staying dead. Of course, everyone has their reasons for disliking a certain trope, and they’re all pretty much valid (unless you’re tired of see f/f romances or “diversity for the sake of diversity” or something similar, in which case […]

Stacking the Shelves #9

Stacking the Shelves #9

hosted by tynga’s reviews Hi everyone! As you can probably tell, I’ve got a new look! Nothing too drastic, but I wanted something a bit *more* than what I had before, so added some flowers, new colors, and a new font. I hope you like it 🙂 This week seemed interminable but also really fast all at once? I guess Friday just sneaked up on me. Not a whole lot happened around here, but we did get our new living […]

Summer TV: Aquarius Pilot

Summer TV: Aquarius Pilot

A gritty 1960s cop drama about a cop who goes undercover to track Charles Manson and the Manson Family before their infamous murder spree. When I saw the preview for Aquarius, I knew it was a show I needed to watch. I’m one of those people obsessed with crime documentaries, Investigation Discovery, serial killers and everything that goes with it. When I was in middle school and first heard the words Manson Family Murders, I researched like crazy. I was […]

Burrito Bowl Tag

Burrito Bowl Tag

The Burrito Bowl tag was created by Christina from Girl in the Pages and Joey from Thoughts and Afterthoughts. While I’ve never eaten at Chipotle, I do love doing these tags, and since this one was actually started on the book blog side of things, I wanted to show my support and spread this one around! Rice: The Foundation The book that got you into blogging The Dust of 100 Dogs by AS King I read The Dust of 100 […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Anticipated Reads for Late 2015

Top Ten Tuesday: Anticipated Reads for Late 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish combining my two favorite things: books and lists! This week we’re talking about upcoming books for the rest of the year that we’re excited about. We typically do a top ten list of releases we’re excited about in the beginning of the year, but too often that only really includes releases up to June. So I’m happy we’re doing a list now that covers the second half […]

Book Review: Every Last Word

Book Review: Every Last Word

First sentence: I shouldn’t be reading the notes. I originally planned for this review to post a little bit closer to the release date, but I just finished this book a few minutes ago and I know this is something I want to talk about right now. Tamara Ireland Stone gets so many things right with regards to OCD, obsession, and mental health care. It was refreshing and invigorating to see how all these things were handled; coupled with great […]
