Top 5 Wednesday – Best Books to Go into Blindfolded

I would like to quickly apologize for the lack of a post over the past few weeks, especially the Tag Tuesday post. I haven’t been feeling well and it’s been difficult for me to find the energy to do the things I need to do between dragging myself from point A to point B without falling asleep… But hey! I’m here now! 🙂

This week’s Top 5 Wednesday is “Books to Read without the Synopsis”. There are some books that are just better if you don’t have any warning to what is going to happen. These are my top 5.

Top 5 Wednesday – School Death

This week’s Top 5 Wednesday is “classes based on books or characters from books.”

Welcome to School Death! Your major is Murder, concentration Magic. Below are 5 of the classes that you will be taking, as an example of what to expect. You will find a complete list in your syllabus, along with a schedule and rules. I can’t stress this enough… no murdering your classmates. You will have your chance to practice soon enough after you learn how to kill correctly. Remember, the difference between a free killer and a convicted murderer is the free killer knows how to get away with it.

Tag Tuesday – Back to School Tag

Howdy everyone! It’s that time again: Tag Tuesday! This one is going to be pretty fun. As you all probably know by now if you follow my personal blog, my one and only munchkin just started PreK this year! Next year, my husband is going back to school to become a CNA, or maybe me for my Literature degree. Who knows?! We haven’t figured that out yet, but we have time. #Procrastination So we have been talking a lot about school in this house lately. This tag is brand new as well, so it couldn’t have come at a better time.

The creator of the book tag is YouTuber BangedyBangs.

Top 5 Wednesday – Favorite Bromances

I love a good romance, but friendship tends to be pushed to the back burner way too often, especially in YA. Sure, there’s still friendship, but it doesn’t really seem to feel like friendship. It’s usually more along the lines of acquaintances pretending to be friends. I like to see some laughing, rough housing, teasing, and even fighting. Because that’s what friends do. It’s particularly hard to find a YA book that has a bromance, two guys who are super close — AND the writer actually shows us that fact. So here are my top 5 bromances!

Unpopular Opinion Book Tag

Howdy everybody! I figured it was about time to do the Unpopular Opinion Book Tag. So I tagged myself since you know… I rarely get tags… *crickets chirping*

So anyway! I’ve seen this tag all over YouTube, and just love watching them. The original was created back in 2015 by TheBookArcher. If you would like to watch some, here are a few that I recommend:
Emmma Books
Jesse the Reader
Problems of a Book Nerd
A Book Utopia
Thoughts on Tomes

I would like to quickly mention that you may not agree with my answers. That’s okay. Opinions are like assholes. We all have one and sometimes they stink. But we accept that to be a fact and move along. If you think my opinion stinks, you can politely point it out but don’t go screaming at me, mmkay? I can’t help it if my opinions have gas. 😘

Top 5 Wednesday – Books from Before I Joined Goodreads

.

I am really happy with this week’s topic for Top 5 Wednesday. I’m always talking about the books I have read recently, but I never really talk about the books I read “way back when”.

I joined Goodreads back in April 2012. That’s right! I just celebrated my 5th year of being a Goodreads member… or didn’t celebrate… because I didn’t realize my anniversary was April until today. Awkward. Sorry Goodreads! I love you! Please don’t leave me!

So below are my top 5 books before April 2012. P.S. I’m not adding Harry Potter in, because that’s kind of a given (as usual)…

Book Tag Tuesday – Burn It, Rewrite it, Reread it

I have decided to start posting a tag every Tuesday. Sorry that it’s so close to Top 5 Wednesday, but #TagTuesday is, well, on Tuesday and Top 5 Wednesday is a group that posts on, you guessed it, Wednesday… so I didn’t choose the dates y’all! I’m just jumpin’ on the bandwagon.

So for this week’s tag… I was actually tagged! Yes! It’s working. 😀 <- cheesy grin. Thank you Iryna from @BooksAndSword for the tag! For all of you reading, if you want to tag me on one of your book tags, please do!

I did some digging, and I’m pretty sure that the original, according to Ali from Hardback Hoarder (who I trust), the creator of this tag is YouTuber Laura Ann.

Top 5 Wednesday – Characters’ Fitness Routines I Wish I Had

For this week, Top 5 Wednesday is “Characters’ Fitness Routines You Want.” Let me let you in on a little secret: I’m lazy. *gasp!* I know right? Me? Lazy? Who’da thunk it! So honestly, I couldn’t see myself doing much more than 30 minutes of jumping on a mini trampoline, with a book my my hand of course. But I do wish, just about every day, that I had more drive to work out and take better care of myself. So here are my top 5 characters that have an awesome workout routine that I wish I had.

A New Novel Idea

I have been fighting with myself, trying to write YA Fantasy, my favorite genre to read. I keep failing. I am working on a book that is 20K+ words long and for the life of me I can’t make it work! I love the characters, but the story is just lacking. They deserve better.

So I evaluated myself for a few days. I have come to the realization that although I love to read YA fantasy, I am not very good at writing it. So I have decided to write an NA Contemporary piece. I have decided to share what I have written tonight with you fine people to get your opinions. 🙂 Enjoy!
