Down the TBR Hole #4

Down the TBR Hole

Hello friends!

It’s time again for another TBR purge! I, for some reason, have a lot of fun doing these, and find them super therapeutic. I like to pretend they help me get my TBR under control, but let’s be real, I add books MUCH faster than I get rid of them so uhhh. Not really. I console myself by thinking that it could be a lot lot lot worse. Right? RIGHT? Right.

TAG #46: The Scavenger Hunt challenge

Tags & Awards.png

Hello friends!

A couple months ago, I was tagged by Ellyn @ Allonsythornaxx Books to do the Scavenger Hunt Challenge, for which the goal is to find your next read through a number of prompts, one you wouldn’t necessarily reach for. Now, in an ideal world, you’d do this at a bookstore or a library but since neither is really accessible to me where I live and I already have a ridiculous TBR as it is, I decided to use my own bookshelf and if I don’t have any book on my shelves that fits the prompt then I’ll resort to my e-books. And hopefully I’ll end up picking a book I’d forgotten about. The challenge was created by Peter @ Peter Likes Books on Youtube. Continue reading

Zodiac Signs Book Recommendations

Zodiac signs book recs

Hello friends!

As I was thinking lately about some kind of fun post to do on the blog, my very not brilliant brain came to up with this very not creative idea WHICH IS, drum roll please, book recommendations based on the twelve zodiac signs. Now, as I’ve gotten a bit more into astrology the past few months, I know that there’s a bit more depth to all of this and the signs, their traits and their influence are more complex than just your sun sign (the one based on your day of birth, that basically everyone knows) but for the sake of keeping this post light and simple I’m going to base these recommendations on the signs’ most known attributes.

5 Star Predictions: My Cover Crushes

predictions 4.png

Hello friends!

If you’ve seen my March wrap-up, you know that last month I went through a bit of a crisis because of how I had only rated one (1) book five stars so far in the year. By the end of the month, that had went up to three (with one being a correct previous prediction)  but even then that’s still SO LOW for me compared to previous years and I have no idea what’s up with that because I *know* the books I’ve been reading aren’t less amazing than the one I’ve read the previous years, most of them hover in the 4/4.5 general area and yet I have become much more reserved with my 5 stars.

So it’s safe to say, out of the books I’ve predicted and read this year were WAY off. That being said, I’m still gonna do this feature because 1/ It’s super fun and 2/ I might crack the code to this mystery and go back to rating books five stars all the time. NOW to the post at hand. For this edition, I chose books that have covers that give me all the heart eyes that I think I have a very high chance of rating 5 stars. Continue reading

TAG #45: The Tropes Book Tag

Tropes

Hello friends!

I’m finally getting around to catching up on tags I’ve been tagged to do…uh….a long time ago. Is it just me or are tags not as popular as they used to be? I feel like I haven’t been seeing them around much. BUT ANYWAY, for today’s post I’m gonna be doing the Tropes Book Tag that was created by Jes @ Jes Reads Books on Youtube and for which I was tagged by Romie @ Romie we Deserve Love. This looks like a blast because it’s either just subverting a bunch of outdated tropes or reinforcing good ones and I’m here for it!
