TTT: Ten Books I Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t Get To


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week is the last week that Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish and I just want to thank them for hosting for so long. It really is a commitment and I’ll always be grateful to them for introducing me to so many blogs and in turn, so many books. Thank you ladies!

Hopefully, that will also act as a reminder to get to them at least in 2018!

Anyway, coming back to the point of this post, which is to rave about Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare. This book had me reading compulsively late into the night.

Top Ten Tuesdays: Top Recent Reads


Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list our recent 5-star reads.

Since I rarely classify books as 5-stars, let’s face it, no book is perfect, I am instead going to list the top ten books I read and loved recently.

Teaser Tuesdays: City of Bones


I've been reading this book all weekend, and it's pretty addictive and enjoyable. I particularly enjoy the references to Indian mythology and history scattered throughout. "It's a chakhram," said Jace, looking up as Clary came into the room. "A Sikh weapon. You whirl it around your index finger before releasing it. They're rare and hard to use. ~ ...

Top Ten Tuesdays: Popular Authors I’ve Never Read


Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list the Top Ten Popular Authors We've Never Read. This is an interesting meme, and I am sure I could easily make more than 10. I tend to not read trending books, or hugely popular ones, not because of snobbery, but when I ...
