These are my top ten comfort reads. I wouldn't call any of them "lighthearted." (Well...maybe One Last Stop.) Would You Rather?… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Comfort Reads

Top Ten Least Favorite Books of 2021

I started this new habit of DNFing any book I'm not fully enjoying. Instead of spite-reading a number of one- and two-star books, I DNFed most of them. As such, there were fewer contenders for this year's Least Favorite Books list. I still found some stinkers. These were the worst books I read in 2021.… Continue reading Top Ten Least Favorite Books of 2021

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books I would hand to someone who claims to not like reading

Top Ten Tuesday says I get to make nonreaders read books today. If you're not one for walls of plain text, may I suggest some graphic novels? Still counts as reading. Nimona by Noelle Stevenson What if the Lord of the Rings movies were funny and fast-paced? And explored how trauma influences identity? And had… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books I would hand to someone who claims to not like reading

I needed a new book tag to honor the latest crop of books I've finished. While I don't own a cat, I still wanted to talk about What Cats Do (according to Kate @ MeltingPotsandOtherCalamities.)
