Well, we're weeks into 2021, but better late than never getting this post up, right? Honestly, this was so hard because the quality of the books I read this year was just so dang high across the board. Like, I think most of my top 30 reads from this year would beat most my top… Continue reading Top Ten Reads of 2020!
I haven’t seen this one around much and I’m not sure I’ve seen any real reviews of it, but for some reason, I found myself drawn to it. I didn’t even really know what it was about, to be honest, other than a vague idea that it was a sci-fi standalone (a rare thing, and… Continue reading The Vanished Birds
Well, I think we could all agree that I knew I’d be reading this one. Tagged as lesbian necromancers in space, there was really no more I needed to know. And all the awards it’s been nominated for since then really only reinforced what I already knew. In fact, this was in the stack of… Continue reading Gideon the Ninth
To be honest, I originally was interested in this book because the title made me think of Doctor Who. #nerdalert But even after I realized what it was actually about (completely unrelated to Doctor Who, for the record), I was very interested in it. And then it got chosen as the January book for my… Continue reading This Is How You Lose the Time War
I was looking back for my previous "favorite books of the year" posts before writing this one, just to see, and realized that apparently I didn't even start it until last year (2018)! So I guess I won't be trying to post any "best of the decade" lists, because I just know, without anything to… Continue reading Top Ten Reads of 2019!
Alright, something you may not know about me is that I am a sucker for a story about a band/music. I’m not sure what it is exactly that draws me to those types of books, but I do know that I can trace it back to reading The Dirt in high school with one of… Continue reading Daisy Jones & The Six
Happy New Year Everybody! I almost made this post on time, but I struggled SO hard narrowing my Top Ten list down to an actual ten books (I was stuck at fifteen and kept going back and forth). But I'm here to say that I'd rather be a day late than not be happy with… Continue reading Top Ten Reads of 2018!
This is my second Top Ten Tuesday participating post (the previous one was for Valentine's Day back in February). And though I'm getting better at it - at least this one was posted on the right day of the week - I'm still sliding in late, just under the wire. In any case, I was… Continue reading Favorite Reads of the Year (so far): Halfway Through 2018 TTT
I think it should be pretty obvious why I picked up this book. A book of love letters and break up notes from a librarian to the many books she’s read throughout her life. I mean, it’s pretty much the book lover’s book. And I am nothing if not a book lover. In fact, sometimes… Continue reading Dear Fahrenheit 451
