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 – The Second Book Was Best

For this week, Top 5 Wednesday is “the second book is best.” We’ve all read series where the first book is best, but then it goes downhill. We’ve read series where it gets better as you go on, which from my experience is usually what happens. But what about the middle? For this week, it’s about series where the 2nd book is the best. This challenge is going to be a bit difficult to do without spoilers, but I promise I’ll try my best. Just another little note, I have only 3 this week. It was a tough one, and I haven’t finished enough series to pick out 5. Oh well, what can ya do?

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.

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…
