My Childhood is Made Up of Many, Many Books // Top Ten Tuesday

This week is all about looking at the books you’ve forgotten that you love. I decided to split things up – there are my favorites from my childhood (well, some of them – I read a lot and am very nostalgic) and some pre-blogging books that I might have mentioned on here, but not nearly … More My Childhood is Made Up of Many, Many Books // Top Ten Tuesday

Sometimes You Need to Work for Good Books // Top Ten Tuesday

This week is all about those books you have to work for, the ones that don’t pull you in as soon as you read that first line – but do eventually pull you in, nonetheless. I’m sure that there are some books that could have ended up on this list if I didn’t DNF them, … More Sometimes You Need to Work for Good Books // Top Ten Tuesday

You’ll Find Hidden Treasure in These Graphic Novels // Top Ten Tuesday

Hidden gems – those things you find and love but no one else seems to ever notice. That’s what this week’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about.

Let’s Fill Up the Imaginary Classroom Library // Top Ten Tuesday

This week is all about back to school! Now, this is a bit of a touchy subject with me at the moment because I still haven’t managed to get a job (seriously, anxiety + job search = a very stressed out me, especially when I’m lying in bed not asleep), but I hope to someday … More Let’s Fill Up the Imaginary Classroom Library // Top Ten Tuesday

Anyway, this is all about recommending books, so I’m recommending books for my sister, who just doesn’t read nearly as much as she should now that she’s in college and busy being a quasi-adult. Boo, sister of mine, … More Get Ready For a Lot of Reading, Oh Sister of Mine // Top Ten Tuesday

The Fathers Who Give Us Literary Love // Top Ten Tuesday

First it was time to celebrate the mothers we love to read about, now it’s time for the fathers.

There Are More Books to Look Forward To in 2017 // Top Ten Tuesday

Um, oops? This was last week’s post, but I forgot about it until about 3 a.m. on Wednesday morning, so I decided to do it this week instead, especially since I already had the graphics made and love talking about exciting upcoming books. What sixteen-year-old Elizabeth has lost so far: forty pounds, four jean sizes, … More There Are More Books to Look Forward To in 2017 // Top Ten Tuesday

The Mothers Who Give Us Literary Love // Top Ten Tuesday

Mother’s Day was this past Sunday – I hope you all had mothers to celebrate, but I know that the holiday can be bittersweet, or simply bitter, for some people. Luckily, we all have plenty of literary mothers to love who can make Mother’s Day a better experience, even if you’re simply snuggling up with … More The Mothers Who Give Us Literary Love // Top Ten Tuesday
