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.

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.

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?

Looove doing last minute Top Ten Tuesday posts. (No, honestly, I love doing this.) (Can you tell I'm a pantser?) Today's topic is bookish pet peeves! I thought I wouldn't have much to say today.
