Top Ten Tuesday (#20): Top Ten Books I Read In One Sitting

toptentuesday2

Still so happy that this meme is back! I really do enjoy this one the most, and this week has proven to be another fun list to compile! Top ten books I read in one sitting…and it should come as no surprise that most of these are comics, graphic novels, and manga, haha. I’m really not a fast reader, so it’s very rare for me to get through a full book in only one sitting! There’s a lot more adulting to do nowadays too, so that definitely interrupts the “one sitting” status most often. But anyway, I hope that you enjoy this week’s list, and happy reading to you all!

Currently Reading, Watching, Trying (#2)

ezgif-1-0cca031349I hadn’t really decided whether I would post these on specific days, or whether it’d be weekly, bi-weekly, or whenever. But so as to keep the content as fresh as possible, I might just post them when the things I’m reading, watching, and trying change up a bit, (and also when I have time), since there’s no point in making two or more posts about the same content. Right? I know that readers usually prefer that there be a schedule, or at least a regularity to how posts go live, but even though I’m quite organized as a person, that side of me seems not to apply to blogging at all. But a lot of you are still around, so I don’t feel like a total failure, haha. Thank you so much for all of your support!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these (again) just because I’ve been very busy on Mondays, and/or I thought that my answers to the weekly random questions would be too boring to post, haha. But I’m back this week with an alright answer (I suppose), and some blog news!
