December Releases I’m Excited For

december releases i'm excited for blog header

I cannot believe that it’s already late enough in November for me to be making this post! Granted, I’m doing this a bit sooner than I usually do, but still… December is typically a pretty slow month for book releases, but that’s not to say that there aren’t still a few books releasing that I’m looking forward to. As we should all know by now, I’m a big fan of bringing attention to new books that will be releasing, so let’s all dive in and (hopefully) add to those never-ending TBRs of yours, shall we? 😉

Around the Blogosphere

Good morning (or afternoon or night, depending on where you are)! I’m back again today with another one of my Around the Blogosphere posts. For those of you who don’t know, this is a feature I do once a month to highlight and talk about some posts I’ve seen on other people’s blogs recently. I love helping other people discover new blogs and this is a great way for me to do that! So if you’re looking to blog hop, check out the posts below.

Diverse Books I Want To Read

hype or like friday 11-17-17 blog header

Happy Friday, everyone! In case you missed my post a couple of weeks ago, I’m going to be participating in Hype or Like Friday from time to time. I became part of this group last year when it was created and decided to finally join in, haha. If you’re not sure what Hype or Like Friday is, check out the Goodreads group here. The short version: each month has a different theme and a popular book. Every Friday there’s a post for group members to post and then at the end of the month, everyone reviews the book and says whether or not it deserves the hype. I’m not going to be able to read the book this month, but I wanted to do a couple of the posts anyway. This week participants are sharing some of the diverse books they want to read. I could easily put dozens of books on this list, but I tried to limit it to only a few. Feel free to chime in with comments and let me know what you thought of these if you’ve read any of them!

Top Ten Books I Want My Future Children To Read

top ten tuesday 11-14-17 blog header

It’s Tuesday again which means it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday post! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme or prompt for which you come up with a list of ten books or ideas. This week’s theme is books I want my future children to read. I left out Harry Potter this week because I had a feeling a lot of people would be including it in their posts and I wanted to be at least somewhat original. 😛 Basically, all of the books on this list are here for one of two reasons: they’re one of my all-time favorites and I’d want my kids to experience them or they discuss really important issues that I’d want my kids to know about. I’ll talk a little bit about each one down below, so let’s get into it.

Opinions Changing Over Time

changing opinions over time blog header

How many times have you read a book, thought it was great, and then realized a few weeks or months later that it actually wasn’t very good? Or you find yourself initially disappointed by a book only to later find yourself constantly looking back on it fondly? The truth is that our opinions of books can change over time and this can make it kind of difficult to review books as a blogger.

Top Five Favorite Problematic Characters

top five wednesday 11-8-17 blog header

Top 5 Wednesday is currently being hosted by Sam at ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to learn more about the group or are considering joining in, check out the Goodreads group. Each week has a different topic and you just post 5 books that fit that topic. This week’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is all about those favorite problematic characters of ours. We all have those characters that we love even though we know we shouldn’t, so this week we’re celebrating those forbidden favorites. This list was kind of difficult to put together truthfully – I really tend to gravitate towards those perfect characters who do no evil, haha. Most of these characters aren’t characters that I actually like in terms of personality, but I really like reading about them because, in one way or another, they fascinate me. Enough of my rambling – let’s take a look at what (or shall I say who) I came up with!
