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! Sorry this is a bit late, but I’ve had a very busy week. I will tell you what is happening in a later post because I don’t want to jinx anything, but it’s all been good news! I … Continue reading
Hey bookworms! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday! I really liked this topic and felt why not share my only bookish guilt? Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish in which we … Continue reading
Hey bookworms! I hope your ready to talk about a happy subject. It is always good to laugh and I am not at all afraid to laugh out loud when reading. I am not ashamed because laughing in public or in the car can always start a good conversation. Books do bond us all together. So let’s talk about the book that makes me get lost in a giggle fit.
Day 20: A Book That Made You Laugh
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
I love Percy’s sense of humor and sarcasm throughout this whole series. The fact that his mouth gets him into trouble makes it even more funny. Rick Riordan showing kids that they can use their disadvantages as advantages. Along with friends Percy shows even young we know what is worth fighting for. Riordan’s characters are definitely diverse and has an interesting take on mythology. Even if this book technically a middle grade you can enjoy this series at any age. It is definitely a book to read if you are having a bad day because it can always be worse like being chased by a creature 5 times your size and trying not to be smote by Gods! Well that is all there is for this post Bookworms! What books have made you laugh out loud in public feel free to let me know! Happy Reading!
Hey bookworms! I saw this tag on What More is Tomorrow’s blog and the tag was created by the booktuber, A Daydreamer’s Ramblings and immediately knew I had to do it! Maybe it’s because it was because I was craving chocolate all week? Which I finally got with some dark chocolate gelato! =D Anywho this seemed too fun to resist, so I hope you enjoy my answers.
1. Dark chocolate: a book that covers a dark topic
For right now I would have to say my belated guilty pleasure… Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews. Now if you don’t know this book deals with themes of incest and child abuse. Now if you can get over these two subjects the way it is written brings you into investing in these characters right away. The journalistic style had me constantly having to remind myself it was fiction. If you can look past the incest you can see the themes that this book brought awareness too which is why I defend liking it. I call it a guilty pleasure because I want to see what the rest of the series entails and what happens to the Dollangangers.
2. White chocolate: your favorite lighthearted/humorous read
Definitely the Percy Jackson and the Olympian Series series by Rick Riordan I just love Percy’s personality and he constantly makes me giggle!
3. Milk chocolate: a book with a lot of hype that you’re dying to read
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon this book and the show have both gotten huge amounts of hype, but it is biiiiiiiiiiig! So I am hoping to get to it as soon as the semester ends. It is definitely not easy to tackle big reads in April when everything is due for my classes!
4. Chocolate with a caramel center: a book that makes you feel all gooey in the middle while you read it
Stardust by Neil Gaiman I listened to this last month as an audiobook, and I think there are certain books that touch more when your older! Because when I was in high school the all the little details confused me deeply and it went over my head, but now at the age of 23 it made me melt!
5. Wafer free kit kat: a book that has surprised you lately
I really haven’t been surprised lately in the last few years (recommendations if you want to fix the problem for me please!), so I will just go with the last one that did:
Tiger’s Destiny by Colleen Houck just what happened to the characters in this I was not ready for…
6.Snickers: a book you are going nuts about
I haven’t read a book lately that I’m fangirling over, so I will put my most anticipated release of this year:
The Heir by Kiera Cass I love that the series is continuing! I will not put more than because I do not want to spoil anyone who wants to start this series.
7. Hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows: a book that you would turn to for a comfort read
Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause! I have mentioned this book before and it’s not exactly a sweet read, but it reminds me of a sense of pack and why I connect with wolves. It is also the book I’ve read the most: 16 times!
Now I do want to tag one blogger: The Paige-Turner, but I want to see more people do this because I do love chocolate! Comment down below and let me know if you have read any of these books or have a suggestion for a book to surprise me please. I hope you enjoyed this post bookworms and I will be posting again soon!
