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!

November TBR

november tbr blog header

I really feel like I say this every single month, but I cannot believe that it’s November already! Personally, I love this time of year because it means the holidays are right around the corner. I love Christmas and really enjoy the weeks leading up to the big day, so this really is the best time of the year for me.

Anyway, before I ramble too much about Christmas, let’s get into my tentative TBR for November. As has been the case for the past few months, I’m not totally sure what I want to read this month and I have so many options. But I have a rough idea of what I might read and I wanted to share that with you all!

Hype or Like Friday: Favorite Diverse Reads

hype or like friday 11-3-17 blog header

Happy Friday, everyone! I’ve decided to start (periodically) participating in a new thing: Hype or Like Friday. I became part of this group last year when it was created and just now I figured it was finally time that I actually participate in some of the posts for it, 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 sure if I’ll be reading the book for this month (I’m so behind on books right now and in a pretty massive slump, unfortunately), but I’m going to give it a try! Anyway, this week’s post is “favorite diverse reads.” I’ve decided to kind of combine this week’s and next week’s since next week’s is favorite #ownvoices books and most of my favorite diverse reads happen to also be #ownvoices books. I feel like I’m kind of rambling at this point, so let’s just get into the post, shall we?

Top Five Genre-Bending Novels

top five wednesday 11-1-17 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 topic is top 5 genre benders: books that defy genre or are hard to place in a certain category. I have to admit this topic was a lot harder than I thought it would be! I thought it’d be easy for me to come up with books that mix multiple genres, but it ended up being a lot more difficult to come up with five. Anyway, let’s take a look at my choices.

Top Ten Mysteries/Thrillers On My TBR (Halloween Freebie)

top ten tuesday 10-31-17 blog header

It’s Tuesday again which means it’s time for yet 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 is a Halloween freebie. I think last year I used this to talk about horror books on my TBR and I almost did that this time too until I realized that it would essentially be the exact same list since I suck at getting to books on my TBR, haha. I always associate mysteries and thrillers with Halloween too, so I decided to talk about some of those books this time around. So let’s take a look at some of the thrillers on my TBR!
