Top Ten: Characters I’d Switch Places With

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme was characters I’d switch places with – which, just so you know, was really hard! I mostly ended up deciding that these characters had a not-so-difficult arc, existed in a world I found tolerable, and whose end justified the means. Onward!

Beth from Attachments // Diana from A Discovery of Witches // Elle from Geekerella // Susan from Giant Days // Cameron from If I’m Being Honest

Cathy from I Went to Vassar for This? // Molly from Lip Lock // Millie from My Favorite Half-Night Stand // Lizzie from Queen of Babble // Jessica from Sloppy Firsts

Round-Up: My Spring 2018 TBR

The Top Ten Tuesday topic for March 20th was “books on my spring TBR,” and I pledged to read the following:

So, what did I actually read?

On the list…

Not on the list…

What I missed…

All in all, I didn’t do a terrible job – I read eight books out of a planned ten, but I only read 50% of those I actually wanted to read. (Isn’t that life??) Did any of you have a spring TBR? Did you stick to it? Let me know!

Top Ten: Graphic Novels & Comics on My TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme was ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. (JK, it was a freebie!)

I had originally planned to make a Five Favorite post about graphic novels… then realized I had read more comics than graphic novels… then thought I should do a FF on TBR graphic novels… and then had so many that I didn’t want to limit myself to just five! So, in no particular order, here are ten graphic novels and comics I am itching to read (hopefully in 2016!).

Top Ten: Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2016

logo-TopTenTuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme was the most anticipated releases for the first half (January through June) of 2016.

I’m getting a little bit better at knowing about new releases – thank you, library job – but I still don’t know about a lot (hence my shortened list!). As to me actually reading any of these next year… well, that’s an entirely different story!
