#Blogmas: Surprising books of 2019

A couple days ago I did my most disappointing reads of the year and today I’m bringing you my most surprising. I feel like I got out of my comfort zone with buddy reads, book club and in general so there were quite a few surprising ones.

Bird Box: Book to Movie

If anyone tried the bird box challenge they instantly lost cool points in my book. Due to me feeling like death a couple months ago I watched the Bird Box movie relatively quickly after reading the book in January. I thought I should do a book to movie comparison/ review before I forget everything. I […]

Books I DNF’d (Thank U, Next)

When I was younger and even through college I was completely okay with DNFing books. Somehow this changed the last couple of years. I hate it. This year I gave myself permission to start DNF-ing again and created a shelf for these books. There are four total. The Kill Order by James Dashner I tried. […]

Thoughts on Handmaid’s Tale

This is going to show everyone how pathetically behind on writing posts I am. This post was originally drafted in 2017…. in April. Pathetic. But I’ve also read this book multiple times, had many discussions about it and watched season one. It’s ingrained in my brain. Way back in early 2017 I reread The Handmaid’s […]

The Book Ban(ish)

I’m pretty sure most people know this by now, but I have eight bookshelves. Mainly full. They would all be full but one of them I use for books I own that I’ve read in the current year. This bookcase so far has six books, plus two others that people are borrowing, and one I’m […]

Readathons: Talk for Tea Time

Readathons are a wonderful thing. I love seeing them, participating in them and seeing what everyone else is reading (my TBR gets so much longer every time I participate). Over the summer I participated in a couple different ones and learned a lot about my reading habits. A readathon is when a group of people […]

If You Like This, Try This

As I read more and more books every year it’s impossible not to draw parallels between the different books. I don’t necessarily like reading books if they are too similar, so a couple of these I don’t like because they are so similar. However, I do know  a lot of people don’t mind similar books […]

Discussion: Sequel Covers

It’s a great thing when your favorite book gets a new sequel. You finally get to know what happens next, you get to enjoy the unpredictability- and the cover. You get to see a new cover. Normally I love seeing new covers. They take on a new approach and sometimes look relatively similar. Some even […]

Discussion: Removing Books

Lately I’ve been adding books upon books to my list of books to read, while adding these I have found there are books on that list that no longer interest me. I get into moods of what I want to read and then other books do not sound interesting to me. When this happens I […]

New Vs Worn books

          I love the feel of new books, but I used to love worn down books. Then I realized I like the process of making them worn down. It’s kind of like a marker of how much the book has been read or carried around. I’m thinking worn down to be creases down the spine, […]
