Hello, hello! I have a tag for you all today! I wasn’t tagged by anyone to do this but I saw it over at abooknerd13‘s blog and thought it was fun. The original creator is littlespider9.
So, yeah. There’s not much else to say. Let’s get to it!
A really hyped book you’re not interested in reading?
Ok, I know, I know. This is THE book to a lot of people. And I know I’ve said this many times before, but I just think I’ll be getting to Harry Potter in this lifetime.
A series you won’t start/won’t be finishing?
I won’t be finishing the Mortal Instruments by Casandra Clare. I stopped after City of Fallen Angels and that was enough for me. I also will not be starting The Infernal Devices, and especially not The Dark Artifices, and even more so whatever comes after that. Sorry, not sorry.
A classic that you’re just not interested in?
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. This book is over a thousand pages and I the mere sight of it makes me sad. I tried reading an abridged version of it back in high school as part of a class requirement and I honestly couldn’t it. What ended up happening was that I sort of, somewhat read the first 100 pages and then kind of, maybe but not really, skimmed the rest. And this was just the abridged version! Just imagine if I had been reading the real thing!
Any genres you never read?
Horror. That’s it. I’m down to read anything except horror. Sorry Stephen King, but no. I am very superstitious and very easily frightened. I don’t need horror in my life.
A book on your shelves you’ll probably never actually read?
Marley and Me by John Grogan. Why do I own this book? Because I was at a used bookstore and they had a whole stack of this book sitting in a corner, selling the books for 25 cents each. That is why. Also, the movie made me cry. But realistically, my TBR is way6 too large and Marley and Me isn’t exactly high on my list of priorities.
Since I wasn’t tagged for this one, I probably won’t be tagging anyone. If you want to do it, go on ahead! I would love to see what books you guys pick for these questions!

Not all book covers are created equal. Some are good, some are bad, some are downright ugly. But, alas, we the readers have no say in the makings of such things. Luckily for us, many books have different editions for us to choose from. The question is, which is better?
In the last week I have seen around ten people who have done this post so I figured, why not join the bandwaggon! This challenge was started by Mercedes on booktube and what you do is you pick out 5 books on your TBR that you think are going to be 5-star reads. Simple enough right?
Here we go!
Books I’m Thankful For
This is it. The book that started it all. I would not be a reader had I not picked up Twilight. I probably would not have become an English major or even started this blog.
I can’t not add this book to my list. This is the book that has shaped me and by whose teachings I strive to live by.
The Hunger Games
While Twilight got me into reading, The Hunger Games made me the avid reader that I am. After reading this series I started reading more and more books. It probably started my book buying problems too.
A Light in the Attic
In elementary school, I was a terrible reader. Then, a teacher assistant that I had told me to check out some of Shel Silverstein’s books of poetry and I absolutely fell in love with them all. A Light in the Attic has always been my favorite, I remember checking it out of the library like ten times and even memorizing some of the poems. It will always hold a place in my heart.

“In that moment, Blue was a little in love with all of them.Their magic. Their quest. Their awfulness and strangeness. Her raven boys.”
If you could steal things from dreams, what would you take?
Ronan Lynch has secrets. Some he keeps from others. Some he keeps from himself.
One secret: Ronan can bring things out of his dreams.
And sometimes he’s not the only one who wants those things.
Ronan is one of the raven boys – a group of friends, practically brothers, searching for a dead king named Glendower, who they think is hidden somewhere in the hills by their elite private school, Aglionby Academy. The path to Glendower has long lived as an undercurrent beneath town. But now, like Ronan’s secrets, it is beginning to rise to the surface – changing everything in its wake.

Hello, hello! I’ve been tagged! Thank you so much to The Orangutan Librarian for tagging me to this!
I have said many times that I don’t read scary books nor do I watch scary movies, but I have always really liked zombies, as strange as it sounds. Maybe because zombies always seem less likely than a psycho killer or demon possession.
I also have to admit, I may or may not have had far too many conversations about the zombie apocalypse with my friends. No lie, it’s how I convinced one of my friends to go to the gym with me, by telling her that people who can’t do cardio always die first in the apocalypse.
So far, the gym thing isn’t going as planned, mostly because I hate going, but my chances of survival have certainly increased. Now, let’s see how much they decrease with this tag!
It’s been a whole year! Wow. I honestly can’t believe it!
A year ago yesterday (November 1st) my friend Rosie and I decided to finally start a book blog. Now the blog is one year old, and I feel like a proud mother!
It honestly feels like only yesterday that I wrote my first post. And yet, I also feel like so much has happened since last November. Blogging has become a regular, everyday part of my life, and I have loved every second of it.
Sure, there have been ups and downs, as there are with all things, but overall, I have loved this experience. And while I have lost co-blogger (Rosie leads a busy life), I have gained many friends. And I have gotten to participate in many cool things like giveaways, blog tours, and many, many book tags!
I wish I could have started this blog years ago and that I had been connected with this awesome community of people from the very start. I have gotten to know so many of you throughout this year and hope to get to know many more! I love communicating with you all, it is honestly my favorite part of this whole thing.
So, thank you for welcoming me to the book blogging world! Thank you for fangirling with me and commenting and liking my posts. Thank you, to all that have made this a wonderful year. I hope to have many, many more!
