Top Ten Tuesday: Debut Authors I’d Like to Read Again

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week’s topic: Debut Authors I Want to Read Again This topic is great for me because, while I’m terrible at knowing what debuts are coming, I love tracking the debuts I’ve read. I haven’t read as many 2015 debuts so far this year as I’d have liked, but I really enjoyed the handful I have read, and I can’t wait to read more of their work! 1. Amy […]

Stacking the Shelves #21

Stacking the Shelves #21

Helloooo! Halloween is here! HALLOWEEN IS HERE. The most important holiday of the year is FINALLY HERE. Are you feeling spooky? Get spooky! Halloween for me means dressing up like a cat, eating more candy that I’ve handed out, and watching Trick r Treat, aka the best Halloween movie ever. If you haven’t seen it, fix that asap. This week went by pretty quickly for me, though not much happened. But Friday night Mike and I headed out to Malaprops […]

My Favorite YA Thrillers

My Favorite YA Thrillers

Mysteries and psychological thrillers are my jam. I love reading them because I want to know what happens – who is the killer, who is the stalker, what the hell is going on? The mystery compels you to keep reading. When written well, the book practically turns its own pages. I know that if I’m in a reading slump, I can pick up a thriller, and with its twisting, turning plot, I can get back into the swing of reading […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Movies I’m Watching This Month

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish This week’s topic: Halloween Themed Freebie! I obviously really love books, or I wouldn’t have a 5 year blogging career dedicated to reading them. But before I got into reading the way I am now, I was obsessed with movies. I didn’t really watch TV at all, but I rented and owned countless movies, and spent a while working in one of the last movie rental stores ever (or […]

Halloween With Martina Boone’s Family + Giveaway

Halloween With Martina Boone’s Family + Giveaway

Hi everyone! I’m currently reading Compulsion by Martina Boone. It has a creepy, atmospheric vibe that is perfect for Halloween, if you ask me. So I’m very excited to have Martina on the blog today to talk about the holiday with us! Halloween has always been my favorite holiday – I love being scared; I love the costumes; and I loved the yearly ritual of getting our crazy makeup done before going out trick-or-treating. I love it so much, I […]
