Top Ten Favorite Books of the Last Two Years

Top Ten Favorite Books of the Last Two Years

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new topic is given, and this week’s topic is: Top Ten Favorite Books of the Last Two Years I revised this topic to be over the last two years, rather than the last three years.  Two years ago is when I started blogging and using Goodreads, and I’m not certain of the dates I read books prior to that.  Besides, narrowing this down to just ten in… Read more »

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new topic is given, and this week’s topic is: TOP TEN BOOKS I’VE READ SO FAR THIS YEAR 2014 is getting off to a nice start.  I’ve read 89 books so far this year, which just boggles my mind.  Six of those books have been 5 stars, and there are a nice amount of 4 and 4.5 stars.  I didn’t know exactly what I’d see before… Read more »

Top Ten Books With a Realistic Portrayal of Friendship

vide   Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new topic is given, and this week’s topic is: BOOKS WITH A REALISTIC PORTRAYAL OF FRIENDSHIP It’s not hard to find a book with friendship as a central theme.  But it’s harder to find a book that portrays friendship well, realistically depicting friendships we have in our own lives.  The following books feature friendships that feel genuine, even if they’re not always pretty. Roomies… Read more »

Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

I feel sorry for all of you who read the first two books in The Lunar Chronicles as they were published.  I was content to just hear how amazing Marissa Meyer’s writing is, content in the knowledge that I would get around to reading them…someday.  But when I made these books part of my “Series Catch-Up Challenge” earlier this month, it was time to buckle down.  I LOVED Cinder.  Even with all of my stinginess, I gave it five stars….

Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Cinder is part of my personal “Series Catch-Up” challenge.  As many raves as I’ve heard about this book, I was skeptical.  A cyborg?  A cyborg mechanic, no less?  I wasn’t sure if or how I would connect with this story.  And honestly, before reading Cinder, I wouldn’t have been able to give you a good definition of cyborg.  I probably would have said, “It’s something like a robot, right?”  I needn’t have worried, though, because Cinder was a 5 star… Read more »

Playing the Series Catch-Up Game

Playing the Series Catch-Up Game

My reading tastes have not always skewed towards YA.  But when I began my blog a year ago, that’s what I was reading, so YA became the primary focus of my blog.  Since I got a bit of a late start, I’m now playing “Series Catch-Up,” and it seems like February is a big month for sequels and trilogy enders.  So now, despite the fact that I’m behind on my ARC schedule (and feeling very guilty), I’m going to toss… Read more »
