In Which I Am Very Picky About What Goes into My Bookish Shopping Cart

I’m a bit of an in-between person – to the average, not-so-book-obsessed person, I own a lot of books and probably buy a lot as well, but compared to many people in the bookish community, I’m not so bad at saving my money when it comes to going overboard with the book buying. As such, … More In Which I Am Very Picky About What Goes into My Bookish Shopping Cart

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.

I Am a Horrible Reviewer But Sometimes I Do Actually Review // Mini-Reviews

How to Keep a Boy From Kissing You (Tara Eglington) | Goodreads | 4.5 stars This was such a delightful surprise! It looked like fluffy fun coming in, but it still exceeded my expectations. There was a lot more friendship awesomeness in this book, for example.

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

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

The Joy of Finding Your Bookish Twin // The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

I came into this book with kind of low expectations – well, not nearly as high as many people who were obsessed with Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. I thought the book was delightful enough, but I didn’t love it as much as the rest of the blogosphere seemed to, so I didn’t let … More The Joy of Finding Your Bookish Twin // The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

Get Ready For a Lot of Reading, Oh Sister of Mine // Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is finally back, and I actually have a post for it! Applause for me! 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
