TOP TEN TUESDAY: 2021 releases I was excited about but didn’t get to

Today's Top Ten Tuesday is calling me out. I read 200+ books last year and somehow still missed these. They were on my TBR and everything. These are books that came out last year that I was excited about but forgot to read. Will I prioritize them after posting this? You know I will not.… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: 2021 releases I was excited about but didn’t get to

Top Ten DNFs of 2021

I DNFed more than 80 books in 2021. Some I decided to pick up later, some were just not for me. Then some of them I DNFed because I hated every single thing about them. These are those books. Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon (CW: rape) Hey, I thought this book was supposed to… Continue reading Top Ten DNFs of 2021

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 hope Santa brings

So listen. I'm sure I'll be happy with any of the books Santa (secret or otherwise) brings. For the sake of Top Ten Tuesday, I am playing favorites. These are all the books I'm hoping for, though maybe I should ask Santa for a Kindle Unlimited subscription. The Bridge Kingdom by Danielle L. Jensen This… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books I hope Santa brings

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books I Would Gift My Nemesis

Today's Top Ten Tuesday was a freebie. This is what I came up with. While I have no reason to gift books to my real-life nemesis (looking at you, Derek*), I still entertain passive-aggressive fantasies about giving them books that would cause them undue amounts of pain. Here's my current list. The Goldfinch by Donna… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books I Would Gift My Nemesis

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books to Read if You Liked The Last Jedi

This is the Top Ten Tuesday topic I have been waiting for my whole life. I suspect Rian Johnson reads (and possibly writes) fanfiction. That man hit a number of comforting fanfic beats in his movie and I LOVED it. He also produced some VERY GOOD ACTION SCENES. TLJ felt epic to me in a… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books to Read if You Liked The Last Jedi

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Memorable Things Characters Have Said

I PREPPED for today's Top Ten Tuesday. The following quotes have stitched themselves into my memory. I carry them with me wherever I go. (Minor spoilers throughout) (I kind of spoil Piranesi, so...be warned) I do not understand "damned." You are. And because you are, you can walk where you will, into peace, oblivion, or… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Memorable Things Characters Have Said

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

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Bookish Things That Scare Me

Today's Top Ten Tuesday is a Halloween freebie. I settled on bookish things that scare me for this week's theme. Readers be warned. Unsatisfying endings Don't you hate when you're reading a book that you're CERTAIN will be a five-star read only to be betrayed at the end? My rating for The Intimacy Experiment fell… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Bookish Things That Scare Me
