Top Ten Tuesday (#34): Top Ten Books I Want My Future Children to Read, While They are Still Children

toptentuesday-winter

Happy Tuesday everyone! I’m sorry to have missed a few Top Ten Tuesdays due to being far too busy. But I’m back now! And this week’s topic happens to be about something that I’ve actually been actively thinking about for some time now. I don’t have children yet, but I’ve sort of been compiling a rough list in my head, listing all of the books that I want to make sure that they have available. As a child, I sadly was unable to access diverse children’s books, and therefore was unable to list any here, but please share your suggestions with me, as I would love to add those to my kids’ library!

Monthly Wrap-Up (October 2017)

ezgif-4-bea5e63404Another month has gone by! And so quickly too. How does that happen? It must be because I really really love October and Halloween. Probably. Anyway, the past few weeks have been quite busy for me, and I’m actually surprised that I posted as often as I did. Haha. Sometimes I wonder how I do it! Also, as you may notice…I’m using the same GIFs that I used for the September wrap-up, and that’s because I love Halloween and I think that they’re so cute (and funny haha)!

#ARCstravaganza (#15): The Breaking Light by Heather Hansen

Happy Monday everyone! And also happy #ARCstravaganza day! This week I won’t be featuring the ARC of a future release, but rather a past one. Due to this being a book that I was sent without being given a heads up (haha, happens quite a bit), my reading schedule has been too full to read it around the pub date…or for the months that followed. But, I will be reading this book in November! So if you were curious about it, or this is the first time you’re hearing about it, please keep an eye out for my review!

Top Ten Tuesday (#34): Top Ten Yummy Foods Mentioned In Books

                     top-ten-tuesday-halloween-edition

Happy Tuesday and TTT day! This week, we’re all going to leave each other’s posts feeling quite hungry, because this weeks prompt is all about food! Now, if you’re a foodie like me, you will have jumped right to your “read” list on Goodreads and made a top 10 list in no time! Books mention snacks that make me want to try them, or eat them again, all the time! So, I will usually remember which books mentioned which foods, and how badly I wanted to eat said foods, haha. Let’s dig in, shall we?

#ARCstravaganza (#14): Renegades by Marissa Meyer

Happy Monday everyone! And also happy #ARCstravaganza day! I was actually able to schedule this post in advance…because this past weekend was not Thanksgiving weekend, and I wasn’t all thrown off, thinking Saturday was Friday, Sunday was Saturday, and Monday was Sunday. Yeah, I was all confuddled last week and posted my post a day late! Sigh. The shame! Anyway, this week it’s on time, and I’m featuring a book that I’m very excited to have gotten a copy of! I received this book from a good friend of mine, and I’ll just say thank you here again for the millionth time! Hehe.

#ARCstravaganza (#13): Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows

Happy Monday, my lovelies! Or rather, Happy ARCstravaganza day (as I’ve come to call it)! Um wow. So, as some of you may know, Canadian Thanksgiving was yesterday, so most Canadians had the Monday off. Due to working on Saurday (until about 8 pm) and then having Monday off….all day yesterday,  I was under the impression that it was Sunday! I had this post prepped, and just had to add the Insta photo before scheduling it. But I was all out of sorts, and my mental clock is all out of whack! So, here it is today, one day late, because I’m a confused scatterbrain! Haha. Sorry! To learn more about the meme, please continue reading to see the info below, and continue past that to read more about my ARC choice for this week!

Top Ten Tuesday (#33): Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes

                     top-ten-tuesday-halloween-edition

And we’re back this Tuesday with another exciting prompt…Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes! Yes, I know, I love Autumn way too much. But I’m a strong believer that it’s better to fill your life with things that you like and love, than the opposite. Yes. Positivity! My spellchecker is saying that that is not a real world. Too bad. Anyway, this prompt was harder for me to complete than I’d first imagined. When I first saw the prompt over on The Broke and the Bookish I just kind of smiled to myself, cracked my knuckles, and started a search that I thought would be very short and very yielding. I was so very wrong, and in the end, ended up listing a bunch of books that I have not read yet! Some of them are not published yet, sure, but the rest….What’s my excuse? The upside of this adventure, is that I came across some books that I’d never seen or heard of before! But anyway, on to my top ten list!

I, in fact, created the rough draft for this post last Wednesday or Tuesday, and actually wrote it out on Friday. Hahaha. The tag is top ten book boyfriends/girlfriends and it was so much fun to put together! Continue reading to see who I’ve picked!

Happy Monday, my lovelies! Or rather, Happy ARCstravaganza day (as I’ve come to call it)! And also, happy October aka. Halloween and Oktoberfest Month! Yaaaay. I love both Oktoberfest (mostly due to having grown up in a Germanic country, Austria), and Halloween for too many reasons to count! I mean…look at the Halloween-e-fied theme on here and on all of my other social media! Haha. I’m a bit obsessed maybe? But that’s okay, I think. You can read about my September wrap-up, and future plans for the blog here. But back to ARCstravaganza! To learn more about the meme, please continue reading to see the info below, and continue past that to read more about my ARC choice for this week!
