Top Ten Non-YA Recommendations for YA Readers

Top Ten Non-YA Recommendations for YA Readers

Bookish Lists 2

I almost exclusively read YA, as I have for years, but occasionally I do venture into adult books. Although, in the past, it hasn’t been of my own free will. I typically read non-YA only for my literature classes. So that limits my scope a bit to the literary fiction category. Despite that limited scope, I’m going to recommend ten Non-YA books that every YA reader should consider reading. What I love MOST about YA is the exploration of so… Read more »

My Best Books of 2017 So Far [Top Ten Tuesday]

My Best Books of 2017 So Far [Top Ten Tuesday]

Bookish Lists, Top Ten Tuesday 2

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish Since I’ve only read about 30 books this year, it feels unfair to list ten, or even five, books for this category. All of these books are contemporary YA, unfortunately. I love contemporary YA but I feel like I absolutely need to branch out a bit with the genres I read. These are my top 5 star rated reads this year! Here are my three best books of 2017! 1…. Read more »

Top Six Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t [Top Ten Tuesday]

Bookish Lists, Top Ten Tuesday 4

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish Hello! June is almost over and I feel super weird about it. I started my editorial internship two weeks ago so I’ve been busier than usual. It is also why I’m rushing to write this post at noon today (Tuesday) rather than having it scheduled to be up at 8am today like usual. Oh well. It is also why this list only has SIX lovely items instead of ten…. Read more »

Top Ten Books I Would Have Loved if They Weren’t Required School Reading

Top Ten Books I Would Have Loved if They Weren’t Required School Reading

Top Ten Tuesday 5

I tend despise things that I am required to do. It’s a little ridiculous. I could just choose to not do them, but there’d be consequences. Like not reading A Tale of Two Cities would have resulted in very bad grades and a failed test, and I start to panic when I think about abandoning homework assignments because I’m a nerd. Anyway, I almost always end up hating the books I have to read for school. I often start off enjoying them, but then… Read more »

Top Ten Goals For 2015

Top Ten Goals For 2015

Top Ten Tuesday 12

I typically dislike making “New Year’s Resolutions” just because I don’t think a new year necessarily means you get to start ‘new’. Also, since I am the ultimate procrastinator, I can’t afford to believe in it. If I did, it would be another way to procrastinate. Like, I can start doing so and so on New Years instead of now, when there’s no reason I can’t start doing it right away. So instead of making goals for 2015, I’m going to make goals… Read more »

Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2014

Top Ten Tuesday 4

Most of the books I read this year were by authors that were new to me. It was one of my reading goals at the beginning of this year to check out new authors, so I’m very excited to have found so many new authors that I am now huge fans of. I look forward to reading more of their books, and I even already have a few on my kindle waiting to be read, like The Legion by Melissa… Read more »

Top Ten Books I Would Want To Reread (If I Reread Books)

Top Ten Books I Would Want To Reread (If I Reread Books)

Top Ten Tuesday 2

For me, rereading is a thing of the past. Which is incredibly unfortunate, but I just don’t have the time to reread books lately. Especially when there are new books that I need to get my hands on. The idea of rereading is actually so enticing because I’m always super sad to leave a world behind, or a character that I grew deeply attached to. Sometimes, it feels like I mourn characters as if they died when I finish a… Read more »

Top Ten Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More

Top Ten Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More

Top Ten Tuesday 12

I often get carried away with new authors and tend to leave sequels and second books by authors I already love behind, so this is a bit of a wake-up for me to get on with reading more of these authors’ books! Top Ten Eight Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More: Lauren Oliver! I’ve only read Before I Fall and I MUST get my hands on the Delirium trilogy and Panic! Melissa Delport!  I just… Read more »
