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)…

Top 5 Wednesday is hosted by the Goodreads group of the same name. It was created by the YouTube Booktuber Lainey from Ginger Reads Lainey and is now being reigned by the wonderful Booktuber Samantha from Thoughts on Tomes.

Top 5 Wednesday – Series That Got Better

Today’s Top 5 Wednesday is “series that get better”, and y’all know how I love series. This one should be easy, peasy, lemon squeezy, right? Well I hope so because as I am typing this I only have 1 in mind. #GetPreparedDumbass I completely forgot Wednesday was coming until it was here. You know, it comes EVERY WEEK and yet somehow I forget until the last minute. I would take time management classes, but I would probably forget to go. So I’ll stop yapping and get to it…

Summer Book Tag


Well you guys know what my favorite part of summer is. That’s right. Water skiing squirrels. Who’s with me?! Of course those adorable creatures are smarter than people give them credit for, but this tag is about me. And books. It’s always about the books…

Top 5 Wednesday – Books Not Set in the US or Britain

Howdy everybody! I wasn’t sure if I could do this challenge. I was certain that just about every book that I had read was in either the US or Britain. And you know what? I was right. Seriously, this one was rough! But here you have it, my top 5 books that are not set in the US or Britain.

Mean Girls Book Tag

This tag was created by BookTuber Sarah-Jane from TheBookLife.

I was super excited about this one, because Mean Girls continues to be one of my favorite movies. I don’t know what it is about teenage girls lashing out at each other, but something about it just makes me happy.

Funny, since I definitely was not a mean girl in high school! I was usually on the other end of the torture. I was a band geek, and our school couldn’t even afford proper uniforms. So our band instructor put us in tuxes. Yes, even the girls. We were dubbed the Penguins.

So it really is surprising that I love movies & shows like Mean Girls, Pretty Little Liars, and Secret Life of An American Teenager.

So, without further ado, here ya go peoples…

Book Giveaway Time!

IMG_9426

Howdy everybody!

So I recently won a book from Goodreads called Dead Woman Walking by Sharon Bolton. I was surprised to find that she had sent me not one, but TWO copies! One is to give to a friend, because she knew that I would want to share after reading. That, to me, is pretty neat!

Alas… I had no takers from my friends on Facebook. 😦

You see… most of my friends don’t read. Or at least, most that I know IRL. But I have tons of friends in my Coffee Break Goodreads group, and of course they read!

So it was decided. I will hold a giveaway! This book is for members of my Coffee Break Group for our buddy reads. This is also a USA ONLY giveaway because I will have to pay for shipping. When you receive your book, I will set up a buddy read, and we will discuss the book as we read, like our regular Buddy Reads. Rating and reviewing is not required, but I’m sure Sharon would appreciate it!

So, to sum it up, to win this book:
> You must be a member of my Goodreads group.
> You must have a USA address.
> You must stick around for the buddy read with yours truly.
