Hey Bookworms! I am trying to be productive this weekend by getting some posts done for you to read during the week, and like I’ve said I’ve missed you all. I’m doing a Top Ten Tuesday for those of you … Continue reading
Hey Bookworms! I know it’s been forever again it’s the same excuse as always, I’m horrible at balancing work and blogging sometimes even a personal life… But I’m not ready to give up blogging yet! I still want to post as much as I can and eventually maybe I will learn the balance. Have a posting schedule? But anywho onto the topic at hand. It’s time for a belated Top Ten Tuesday post for those of you that don’t know this weekly theme was created by The Broke and The Bookish, in which they give us a topic or question and we come up with our top bookish answers. I am going to do last week’s topic. Top Ten things that makes me grab a book and crack it open. So let’s get started!
Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Magnets for Me to Pick up A Book
1. Anything with Wolves or Werewolves
Here are a few of the ones that have grabbed me, and most are my favorites. The first is on the top of the TBR at the moment!
Maybe I am a little cliche, with the every little girl being obsessed with being a princess, but I always have been obsessed with the ins and outs of royalty and how and why it works. The power, the betrayal, the love, and hell even the lust in some of these. I’m only human, right? ;P
The world and my library obviously need more of these books. Please leave me suggestions if you know any more books with these mythical creatures please leave me comments before.
Anything with a god or a goddess will immediately perk my interest another instance where I need more recommendations. Help a girl in a reading slump out please.
5. A Female/Female Romance to Make Me Swoon
Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst is still on my TBR so please no spoilers please. I wish I would’ve found more of these when I was younger it would have saved my heart and conscious more pain and worry than I can say. I am glad they are here for younger readers though now.
6. Twins or Triplets
I always felt that I was meant to be a twin… Or maybe I just desperately want to be one another subject I feel needs to be touched on more.
7. Magical Realism
The one thing I need more of in my life because it makes me feel like something more to life can happen.
8. Female Friendships
Because I hope and want these kind of relationships in my life and I feel like other girls should do.
I just dream that I’ve lived more than one life, and having characters that have or live in a world that have make me happy
10. Peter Pan Retellings
I need more of these and I haven’t gotten to read Alias Hook yet but it is on my TBR. Honestly I love these retellings because it’s been my favorite book and movie forever. These are the ones I will constantly gravitate to.
Anywho bookworms that’s it for today! What books do you gravitate towards. What are the words, themes, genres, subjects that make you grab or crave a book? Let me know down below maybe we could come up with suggestions for each other. Keep me company at work with your ideas because when this post goes up I will either be getting ready for work or there already. I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week. I miss you all and happy reading!
Hey Bookworms! See I told you I’d have another post for you. I really do miss this community, so I’m going to try and commit my weekends more to blogging for you all. I hope you all miss me too.. … Continue reading
Hey bookworms! I decided to post an update on how far I’ve gotten in this readathon because I need a distraction. Why the need for a distraction, you ask? Well… I have an interview tomorrow! My first one EVER! Yes, I’m 24 and have never had a job. My life has always been school and books. Especially the last five because I wanted out of here, but unfortunately plans got delayed or slightly changed depending on how you want to look at it. Now what makes me more nervous is this job contacted me through one of the sites where my resume was posted, and not through the Bureau of Vocational Rehab… So I have no clue if they won’t discriminate against me for my disability… For instance, my shoes are tennis shoes because it’s the only shoe that offers my ankle support. They aren’t exactly business attire with the rest of my interview clothes. Yes I know it’s illegal to discriminate, but let’s face it the world isn’t perfect and it still happens. Now this isn’t to say this will happen to the company I am interviewed by.
It’s just stuff like this that makes me hyper aware of my Cerebral Palsy. It is part of the reason I get it out of the way first when meeting people. So they can get over solely seeing my disability and instead see me and what I am able to do. I pretty much see myself like my peers. My CP is only a small fraction of me. It doesn’t DEFINE me. If your interested in hearing more of my thoughts of why it doesn’t please let me know in the comments below. Also I am only speaking for myself and not others with my disability because there are various types and degrees of it.
So bookworms to keep my hands busy because I don’t have the ingredients to bake, I decided to do a formal update on my reading progress. Any who hope you didn’t get bored with the mini nervous rant. Onto the books!
Genrethon: Day 3 Update
Falling into Place by Amy Zhang
This book helped me some, but it wasn’t as cathartic as I hoped it’d be! I did give it a 4.5 (5 on goodreads) 5 Stars on Goodreads. I really loved the magical realism of the narrator, but be forewarned this book has triggering moments. It did make me think at the very least.
Hana-Kimi Vol 1 by Hisaya Nakajo, David Ury
This was a reread from Junior High reading it via my Nook since the first read was a friend copy. This was one of the first mangas I ever read! It was still as cute and funny still but seemed a little slower this time around. I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars. If you’re into Twelfth Night or retellings of it and looking for a manga to read this one is for you! =)
Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
I am currently on chapter 27 and I’m really loving Simon’s Oreo diet! Seriously I want to eat everything he described! I’m really liking the amount of details and how I can see every setting. It is nice to feel as if I could walk through them! I plan to hopefully be done with it tonight.
Loyalties by Wendi Kelly and Deborah Dorchak
So I was wrong on my page count I have 300 pages left. I plan to unwind with this one after I finish Simon because my phone will need a break.
Under the Lights by Dahlia Adler
I will be reading this tonight after my Nook charges. I hope it’s a good book to calm my nerves for tomorrow.
The Beast Within by Serena Valentino
This one will be read after I finish reading Loyalties because I am trying to read only one book in a format at a time.
Fated by Alyson Noel
The same after I finish Under the Lights. I am curious to fall into another paranormal world by Alyson Noel.
Well that’s it for today’s post bookworms! How are you doing in the readathon or just your reading week? Do you have any interview tips for me? If you want to know more about how I feel about CP let me know in the comments down below. Happy Reading!
Hey Bookworms! I’m back with another TBR even though TBR Takedown isn’t over it’s okay to overlap things every now and again. So the next readathon I am taking part in is the Genre-Thon!

Any who bookworms that is my TBR! Yes it overlaps a bit with TBR Takedown because the day overlaps and it may be overly ambitious just a bit… We all do whatever it takes to motivate ourselves to cut down our TBR. The only day I won’t be reading is the 16th because I will be at the RT Convention! Eep! Are you participating in the Readathon? What’s on your TBR? Have you read any of these books? Let me know in the comments even if it is just to let me know I am insane for my ambition. Happy Reading and I hope your sunday is a good one!
