All The Books On My Spring TBR

Top Ten Tuesday

Hi everyone. Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the ladies at The Broke and The Bookish, they come up with new lists for the book community to participate in almost every week. You can read more about that here.

I decided to make a list of the books coming out this Spring rather than general books I want to read. You would be surprised how complicated this actually was and not because of the books. I was trying to figure out what months were considered Spring. The fact that it’s freezing outside and feels like it could snow any minute didn’t help any.

After talking to friends, I decided to stick with the standard Spring dates which is March 20th-June 20th. I picked fifteen books that I’m dying to have. I have quite a few of these as eARCs so I need to get to reading!

Top_Fifteen_Books_On_My_Spring_TBR

~March~

Dead_Little_Mean_Girl

Dead Little Mean Girl by Eva Darrows

March 28th from Harlequin Teen

I love the idea of Dead Little Mean Girl because I believe it’s a deconstruction of the mean girl trope. It doesn’t hurt things that the character Quinn is a bit of a nod to Quinn on Daria.

~April~

What Girls Are Made Of by Elana K. Arnold

April 1st from Carolrhoda

I think when a person gets in a relationship, it can be easy to lose themselves inside it and forget who they are after. What Girls Are Made Of seems like it will be discussing what exactly this means and how you get back to it, I can’t wait to read.

Speak of Me As I Am by Sonia Belasco (eARC)

April 4th from Philomel Books

I like how Speak of Me As I Am is going to deal with grief and the way two teenagers grieve. The aspect of the main characters being in the play, Othello also attracts me to this book. Interestingly enough, like What Girls Are Made Of, Speak of Me As I Am will also show who people are when they are on their own. I think that’s important to know, especially when a relationship is possible.

Alex Approximately by Jenn Bennett (eARC)

April 4th from Simon Pulse 

This sounds like such a cute, light-hearted version of You’ve Got Mail, which is one of my favorite movies. I read the first few pages and I was so into them.

Letters To The Lost by Brigid Kemmerer (eARC)

April 4th from Bloomsbury

This is a sadder You’ve Got Mail-esque book. I’ve heard that Brigid Kemmerer is a really good author so not only do I have high hopes because of the plot, but also because of what I’ve heard.

Alex and Eliza: A Love Story by Melissa de la Cruz

April 11th from G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers

Don’t act surprised, this book needs to explanation. I love Hamilton, I love Alex and Eliza’s relationship, I need this book. I will never be satisfied until I read it.

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli (eARC)

April 11th from Balzer + Bray

I have to admit I have still not finished Simon, but I still remember how much I loved reading what I did read of it. It was such a well-written Contemporary that I have nothing but the highest expectations for Upside. I’m really wanting to read it because it features a girl who is fat and Jewish and yes. Need.

~May~

How To Make A Wish by Ashley Herring Blake (eARC)

May 2nd from HMH Books for Young Readers

I read Ashley Blake’s Suffer Love and I adored it the entire time. When I read a debut I love, I have to read the author’s next book, of course. How To Make A Wish sounds amazing with it’s hopefully deeper look into poverty and family dynamics. I love books with dysfunctional and/or unconventional upbringings and seeing how characters deal with that.

Noteworthy by Riley Redgate (eARC)

May 2nd from Amulet Books

This book, I saw someone call it basically She’s The Man meets Pitch Perfect. I love She’s The Man and really any fiction that follows the girl main character who has to pretend to be a guy. I haven’t seen Pitch Perfect, but I’ve seen Glee so I think it’s kind of close? We’ll call it kind of close! So basically, girl dresses up as guy and joins a singing group, um, yes please. It sounds exactly as Glee now that I think of it.

Minus the dressing up as a guy thing.

Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy

May 9th from Balzer + Bray

Ramona Blue is Julie Murphy’s latest book. Following the success of Dumplin’, I knew I wanted to read this. I haven’t read either of Murphy’s previous books, though I do own them. I like how Ramona has a bigger responsibility than some teens and how she has to be the adult. That reminds me quite a bit of I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios. I can’t wait to see how Murphy deals with the sexual orientation in this book.

The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord (eARC)

May 16th from Bloomsbury

I used to go to church camp and Youth Conferences in middle school and part of high school. I always looked forward to it. Well, mostly the youth conferences, to be honest. I love seeing books with characters dealing with faith and how the situations in their life affect that. Emery’s pretty much one to watch now as this is her fourth Contemporary. I am sad to say I have not read any of them yet, though I do own Open Road Summer, The Start of Me and You and yes, The Names They Gave Us.

The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich (eARC)

May 16th from Feiwel & Friends

This book totally deconstructs the love-triangle trope on its head and I am just here for it. Like, yes please. That’s really all I have to say because what else needs to be said?

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon (eARC)

May 30th from Simon Pulse

I am trying to figure out how to phrase what’s in my head. I think arranged marriages are interesting. My first ‘experience’ with actually seeing an arranged marriage plot in fiction was with Degrassi. The characters in Degrassi were also indian. While they didn’t get married, they did meet each other. I’m interested in seeing Dimple and Rishi interact throughout the book.

I Believe In A Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo

May 30th from Farrar, Straus, and Giroux (BYR) 

I wish I could say I love Korean Dramas but to be honest, I’ve only ever watched one. It was Autumn In My Heart and it broke my heart, I was in pieces. It was disturbing how much I still hurt from that drama. I’ve been meaning to watch more dramas but I just haven’t gotten around to it. Part of the reason is because I have to read subtitles and I already find it hard enough to read actual books. You see my problem then, yeah? Anyway, I am in love with this idea of this character studying Korean dramas and wanting to re-create her own sort of romance with that.

~June~

Bad_Romance

 

Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios

June  13th from Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

I fell in love with Heather’s last Contemporary, I’ll Meet You There in 2015. I loved how she dealt with hard topics. Thus I have faith she’ll be able to do justice for this story involving a girl who gets in an abusive relationship. 


Did any of these books make your Spring TBR? If not, what’s on your TBR? Have you read any of these books? Let me know in the comments!


Top Ten Favorite Romance Movies

Hi everyone. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted at The Broke and the Bookish) is a Valentine’s Day freebie. I decided to feature my ten favorite romance movies.

Top Ten Tuesday

ttt_2_14_17

One Day

one-day

I remember renting this from Redbox over winter break during my freshman year of college. I was so fascinated by the idea of the movie going over the day two friends met over the period of 20 years.

Listen To Your Heart

listen_to_your_heart

This was a random indie movie I decided to watch on Netflix. It’s now one of my favorite romance dramas. The female main character is deaf and not portrayed by a deaf actress, which should be noted. I felt the movie did a good job. It is on the sadder side though, so beware.

Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind

eternal_sunshine_of_the_spotless_mind

This was a movie that I heard a lot about over the years. I eventually found it on sale, possibly and gave it a watch. Let me just say “Wow”. I love this movie. It’s really insightful and it’s a deconstruction of the manic pixie dream girl characterization.

Garden State

garden_state

This is similar to the above, I never really thought about it until I bought it. Then I fell in love with it. It also made me listen to The Shins due to a scene in the movie. The soundtrack is also very A +.

Definitely Maybe

definitely_maybe

I bought this without really knowing anything about it and fell in love with the way it was told. The father in the movie tells his daughter the story of how he and her mom met.

A Walk To Remember

a_walk_to_remember

This is my first and favorite Nicholas Sparks-turned-movie I saw. I love Mandy Moore in it.

Dirty Dancing

dirty_dancing

This is a classic which doesn’t need explaining. I like the look at different classes it had but it would’ve been more amazing had it some POC and expanded on the overall difference in economic classes.

Dear John

DJ_IT_1Sht_18

This is my second favorite Nicholas Sparks movie. I’m not a huge fan of Amanda Seyfried, but I liked her in this movie.

Things I Hate About You

10_things_i_hate_about_you

This is another classic which doesn’t need explaining.

Warm Bodies

warm_bodies

I remembered being really interested in this movie which actually came out on Valentine’s Day around seven years ago. I loved the music and the plot in it.


I have a list of romance movies I should watch, as I surprisingly haven’t seen too many. What are some of your favorite romance movies? Happy Valentine’s Day.


All Of The 2016 Books I Meant To Read

Hey guys. I know, I know, “Two Top Ten Tuesdays in a row!”. I’m working on a year long streak of them.  You can find out more about Top Ten Tuesday here.

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is “Top Ten 2016 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn’t Get To (But TOTALLY plan to)“. This is basically my kind of topic. Again.

I went through an absolutely ridiculous reading slump last year. I call it, the lost year. Let’s not talk about it anymore, it’s too painful.

How about I get to the books now? As usual, I have more than ten! I decided to pick sixteen in honor of 2016. And you’ve probably seen me mention all of these lovely, amazing, fantastic looking books before.

  1. This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills
  2. Be Good Be Real Be Crazy by Chelsey Philpot
  3. Still Life With Tornado by A.S. King
  4. Wrecked by Maria Padian
  5. Beast by Brie Spangler
  6. Into White by Randi Pink
  7. The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon
  8. Whisper To Me by Nick Lake
  9. The Memory of Light by Francesco X. Stork
  10. Afterward by Jennifer Mathieu
  11. Girl In Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow
  12. Jerkbait by Mia Siegert
  13. You Know Me Well by David Levithan and Nina LaCour
  14. Autofocus by Lauren Gibaldi
  15. Rani Patel in Full Effect by Sonia Patel
  16. Last Seen Leaving by Caleb Roehrig

I have almost every single one of these books, so there’s no reason for me to not have read them. Absolutely NO reason. Minus work, home, slumps and sleep. No reason at all, guys.

Would you like to know which books I own? I’ll just tell you the ones I don’t have in one format or another: Be Good Be Real Be Crazy, Rani Patel In Full Effect, and Into White.

I feel really connected to Still Life With Tornado, Girl In Pieces, Whisper To Me and The Memory of Light even though I haven’t read them. I feel like when I do read them, I’ll love them.


Have you read any of these books? How did you like them? What are some books you meant to read last year but didn’t?


Top Eleven Debuts I Cannot Wait For

Top Ten Tuesday

It feels like it has been forever since I’ve done a Top Ten Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is done by the ladies at The Broke and the Bookish. They post a new list every week for people to participate in.  I couldn’t pass this one up because I love any chance to talk about the books I’m excited for.

~*~Top Ten 2017 Debuts I’m Excited For~*~

~One~

the_hate_u_give

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas 

I’m going to be hopefully reading this book this week. I’ve heard nothing but great things about it and it is so, sadly,

timely.

~Two~

its_not_like_its_a_secret

It’s Not Like It’s A Secret by Misa Suglura 

I love all the diversity this book has in it, so I’m hoping when it’s published that it is pretty good.

~Three~

aftercare_instructions

Aftercare Instructions by Bonnie Pipkin 

I love the format this is going to take with two types of narrative going on, including a play which fascinates me so much.

~Four~

(No cover)

Dear Martin by Nic Stone 

This is another timely book dealing with #BlackLivesMatter. I love that the main character, Justyce is going to be writing letters to Martin Luther King. I love when characters write letters so this should be interesting.

~Five~

when_dimple_met_rishi

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon 

I am really interested in this dealing with arranged marriage and it’s going to be done with such care. It’s told in two point of views too, which I love in romance novels.

~Six~

(No cover)

You and Me and The End of The World by Amy McCellan 

I fell in love at…actually, I’ll just share the Goodreads summary.

Debut author Amy McClellan’s You and Me and the End of the World is a YA novel pitched as Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist meets Eleanor and Park . In the book, the fates and hearts of two teen outsiders collide when they meet cute in the dark at a party to end all parties.

So much to love. I loved Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist and I love seeing love interests meet. I’m hoping this takes place over one night because, yes, that’s my weakness. I’m actually not sure if this book is happening or not, but one can hope.

~Seven~

the_education_of_margot_sanchez

The Education of Margot Sanchez by Lilliam Rivera 

I’m super excited to read about this Latinx book as I haven’t read very many books with Latinx. Not to mention it also deals with privilege and it sounds so lovely.

~Eight~

after_the_fall

After The Fall by Kate Hart 

After The Fall deals with sexual assault and reputation. I’ve been wanting to read this since I discovered it last year when it was due to come out.

~Nine~ 

the_gallery_of_unfinished_girls

The Gallery of Unfinished Girls by Lauren Karcz

I love that The Gallery of Unfinished Girls has a lot of creativity with painting.

~Ten

american_street

American Street by Ibi Zoboi

I love everything about the summary here with Fabiola having to experience the United States essentially on her own. I’m interested in seeing what she thinks and what she deals with.

~Bonus~

speak_of_me_as_i_am

Speak of Me As I Am by Sonia Belasco 

Speak of Me As I Am is about grief and two teenagers connecting and a play. I really like plays in books though I rarely read books with them in it. I like how the main characters are going to connect with their common grief.


So that is it for my eleven debuts. I could have thrown in a few more, but I wanted to narrow it down. What books are you looking forward to? Have you read any of these?


Top Ten Albums I Really Love

Top Ten Tuesday

I almost forgot to do this post, it’s a good thing I remembered…fifteen minutes until Tuesday. Oops. Anyway, if you’re unfamiliar with this pretty massive meme, it is created by the ladies at The Broke and The Bookish. They make a new list for people to participate in every week. For more information on that, you can go here.

This is another one of my favorite topics: Audio

 

All About Audio freebie —  aka top ten audiobooks you should listen to, 10 books I want to listen to on audio,10 bands you should check out, 10 podcasts you should be listening to, 10 of my all time favorite albums, 10 songs I love, really whatever you can come up with.

I don’t listen to audiobooks and I’m sure if I listed the books I did want to listen to on audio, it’d be a repeat of half my TTTs, haha.

I decided to go with ten of my favorite albums so far. I went in order from year of influence.

~One~

kelly_clarkson_breakaway

Breakaway has been a constant staple in my life since middle school. I’ve always found it really relatable in every circumstance of my life, which is amazing because middle school was over teen years ago now. Kelly’s such an angel.

Favorite Songs: Because Of You, Hear Me, You Found Me, Beautiful Disaster

~Two~

panic_at_the_disco_a_fever_you_cant_sweat_out

I got into Panic! At The Disco in my freshmen year after hearing I Write Sins Not Tragedies (who hasn’t?). I was so happy to hear that I loved other songs even more. Once again, I found a couple of these songs pretty relatable. The song writing on it is just amazing. It’s one reason why I will always, always, always miss Ryan Ross being in P!ATD. It’s seriously heartbreaking to me that he’s not involved anymore because his lyrics were so insightful and personal to his own life.

Favorite Songs: Camisado, Time To Dance

~Three~

crossfade_falling_away

I became interested in Crossfade sometime during the summer after my Sophomore year. It seriously could not have come at a better time. It was super relatable to everything in my life. It still is, so it has staying power.

Or I need to change things, ha.

One of the two.

Favorite Songs: Someday, Already Gone, Everything’s Wrong, Breathing Slowly, Never Coming Home

~Four~

fall_out_boy_infinity_on_high

I knew of Fall Out Boy since Middle School with their song Dance, Dance, which I never did and still don’t care for. This is the album that made me super into them. Thriller is a classic and so many of the songs are so, original. I believe this is their most ‘mainstream’ album so some don’t like it, but it’s my favorite FOB album.

Favorite Songs: Thriller,, The (After) Life of The Party, You’re Crashing But You’re No Wave

~Five~

bastille_all_this_bad_blood

I will admit that I found this album in a random download I did. I downloaded it and only started listening a few months later. That was awful, I should have listened to it RIGHT AWAY. This album is a total gem. I love the dark-sounding songs.

Favorite Songs: Laura Palmer, Icarus

~Six~

hurts_exile

Speaking of dark albums and albums I randomly downloaded…I’m now on Exile. This is the first Hurts album I listened to. It really made me more interested in electropop and duos. It’s very melancholy too.

Favorite Songs: Only You, The Rope, Help

~Seven~

the_sum_of_who_we_are

This was the last album Framing Hanley made and the first (and only, so far) album that I really got into. The whole album is so re-playable. It’s a rock album with a couple darker songs but some light stuff too. I love the sound.

Favorite Songs: Collide, No Saving Me, Streetlights & Silhouettes

~Eight~

Carly Rae Jepsen - Emotion

Carly Carly Carly

Oh, right, reasons I listened to and love this album…

I’ll admit when I heard Call Me Maybe I blew her off. I hated the song, I rolled my eyes when it came on. Now I’m just like “20 year old Amber, what is WRONG with you?”

I don’t know what prompted me to listen to this other than I recognized her name and saw she had a new album coming out on a PopJustice forum.

I ended up following that thread forever and was amazed at her album.

Emotion is pop perfection. It is. It is the best pop album of last year and one of the best EVER. EVER.

It’s so good. It is. It really really is. Listen to it, give her a chance, just do it.

Favorite Songs: Your Type, Making The Most of The Night, Let’s Get Lost, Boy Problems. I Didn’t Just Come Here To Dance

~Nine~

Breathe In Breathe Out Hilary Duff

Oh my gosh. You already know what I think about this album. This album made me dedicate an entire post to Hilary Duff and her album. This is her first album in eight years and it, like Emotion, is almost pop perfection. The latter half of the album takes on a folk sound but oh my gosh, the first six songs are such bops. I love this album so much.

Favorite Songs: Confetti, Breathe In. Breathe. Out., Arms Around A Memory

~Ten~

A-ha Cast In Steel

I was familiar with Take On Me by a-ha, but nothing else. Like Emotion, I noticed this album name and bad title being mentioned on PopJustice and decided to check it out. I think I actually blindly bought this album too. Possibly. Maybe not.

Anyway, it’s an amazing album that I love and adore and relate to. This album sounds really 80s, I heard that it’s because a lot of the material here was from 80s songwriting/music making stuff.

Favorite Songs: Cast In Steel. Under The Makeup, Objects in The Mirror, She’s Humming A Tune


And with that, I am finished! What are some of your favorite albums? Have you heard of any of the ones I listened to? If not will you PLEASE LISTEN TO EMOTION? (And SideB).


Top Ten Tuesday About All The Shows

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created and hosted at The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they have a list for people to post about on their blogs and such. You can read more about that here. They’re usually book-related because “bookish”, NOT THIS WEEK THOUGH. 

This week is TV related.

In honor of Fall Tv, do a tv-themed topic! Top ten favorite tv shows of all time, ten new shows coming out this Fall that are on my radar, tv shows I wish never got cancelled, tv shows I would recommend to book characters, books I wish would be tv shows, ten favorite shows from the late 90’s or early 2000’s, ten tv shows for every fantasy lover, etc.

This is totally my kind of TTT list. Despite the fact that there are SEVERAL shows I haven’t watched, I had all kinds of lists to pick from. So, I’m going to share a couple of them!

Note: I’ll add picture of shows later today.

My first list is:

Top Ten Teen Shows To Watch:

I love teen shows, I really do. I think it’s because I still think of myself as a teen, even though I am anything, but. I constantly rewatch Degrassi and Boy Meets World trying to soak up the “magic” (Envy).

Freaks and Geeks

My So-Called Life

I have heard Freaks and Geeks and My So-Called Life are basically cult classics that were tragically cancelled after only one season. I like that it’s a short show, though from unfortunate circumstances.

Dawson’s Creek

Ah, yes, Kevin Williamson. I discovered who he was when watching The Vampire Diaries. I loved the first couple seasons of The Vampire Diaries, especially the writing. I need to watch more of Kevin’s work so here we are.

Plus Dawson’s Creek is another one of those classics.

Gossip Girl

So, I’m awful with spoilers and discovered who the, er, secret person was. Oops. I still am really interested in this whole premise though.

The fact that Veronica Mars Kristen Bell does the narrating doesn’t hurt things.

90210

i am a little into “spin-offs” of shows, especially when they’re (Degrassi:) the next generation ones. Shenae Grimes (Degrassi alumni, just saying) is one of the main characters for an unknown (to me) period of time which means I must watch it. I need to figure out what happened to Darcy.

One Tree Hill

Okay, now I’m cheating a little. I did watch the first two seasons and roughly half of the third.

Much like Gossip Girl, I accidentally did that thing where I put myself in situations (on webpages) where spoils abound! It’s no one’s fault but my own.

For the record, I’m Team Brucas. Lucases are the worst with love triangles.

Skins

This was one of U.K.’s finest teen dramas. It’s written by teens which means the dialogue and such is supposed to be really, you know, realistic.

The O.C.

I bought the first season of this when it was on sale for $4.99 on Itunes!

Ahem, again, I love that it’s a short show, though, as far as I know, it wasn’t cancelled, it just finished.

Edgemont

I’ve seen some of this show. I used to always mock it as a Degrassi rip-off “Oh, this is this show’s Ashley/Paige/etc.) and I’d laugh and laugh.

And now I want to watch because I believe (after only watching one) foreign teen shows are better than U.S. ones.

Scream

MTV’s newest teen show is a must watch for me. I like that it’s like Pretty Little Liars (which was recently cancelled). I hear this show is actually pretty good though and much better than PLL’s newer seasons.

Sorry, PLL.

Now for my next list!

Top Ten Shows I Need To Finish:

Gilmore Girls

I remember I left off on one really good episode of this show, then my Netflix account ended. This was around a year and a half ago. I haven’t gone back to it yet because Why isn’t MY life like that?

It makes me want to be a single parent to a teen girl I’m only a 16 year old age difference from.

Well THAT’S not going to happen, clearly.

One Tree Hill

Did I mention I totally ruined this show for me?

Like everything.

I know what happens to every character, who they end up with, who’s in what season, just, everything.

Did I mention I saw the finale before ever watching a single episode?

Yes. I was home for the summer a couple years ago, it was on TV, it seemed like a monumental event, so I watched it.

I had no idea who the characters were, but it all comes back now that I’ve watched a few seasons of it.

How To Get Away With Murder

I was really into this show up until I started looking it up on IMDB and saw how quite a few things didn’t make sense. I still think it’s pretty good, plus Paris is in it.

Here is my live-tweet thread up to season 2 and a half, I think? The winter finale.

Grey’s Anatomy

This show.

I’ve had such a love/hate relationship with this show, this is all I’ll say.

My thread for season 1-4:

My thread for season 5+: 

My thread for season 7: 

The 100

My live-tweeting thread 

The episode, Demons ruined this show for me. I can’t get past the episode. Oh my goshhhh.

I also read a spoiler or two about the finale.

Darn it! This always happens!

Daria

I don’t know what got me watching this show again. It was late at night, I believe I read someone talking about it

online somewhere. I decided to watch it and fell a little in love. I’m around five episodes in.

Glee

I was at home and this song came on that a character sings in the show and it made me really sad.

Bojack Horseman

This is the newest recent show I started randomly on Netflix one night. Except it wasn’t so randomly because people on a Pop forum were talking about how sad and realistic it was and I’m like “Sad and realistic, that’s me.”

So far so good.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer

I’m back to watching this which I started a little over a year ago. I knocked episodes out left and right.

Then episode 7 of season 2 happened and I couldn’t anymore.

I pushed through it though! Now I’m still on the second season, sigh.

I love it. I found spoilers for this show too. Rather, TWITTER informed me of a same spoiler multiple times. This person didn’t say it to me, but like, it’s just ‘there’. Without a warning!

My twitter thread.

Veronica Mars

It’s not over, stop lying!

I am in denial, guys. I’ve seen the first two seasons, roughly 16 episodes of the third season and the movie. I just can’t manage to push through the whole third season because it’s so CRUELLY ENDED.

I despise it even more after hearing the plan Rob Thomas had for the fourth season and now my head is full of “What ifs?” It’s tragic.

I started rewatching this during BEA Adventures, but haven’t finished yet. I’ll finish the series off as soon as I, you know, start watching it again.


So, what are some shows you want to watch or you think I need to watch? Odds are I’ll have them on my ridiculously long list of shows to sometime finish or watch. Have you seen any of these shows? I imagine you’ll have at least seen one, right? 🙂


Top Twelve Books I Never Reviewed

 

Top Ten Tuesday

I really like this week’s “freebie” topic. Basically, we get to go back through the past Top Ten Tuesday topics and choose one we missed doing. I’m doing one from a long time ago when I didn’t even have a blog.

Here’s the original Top Ten Tuesday post. 

This topic has my name written all over it.

Remember when I first started blogging and I would actually post TWO reviews a day, twice a week? Me too. Those were the days. Clearly I should have stock piled those!

I don’t know why I’m so bad at writing reviews. I think it’s because I wait forever and can never word my feelings well enough.

Of course, I now have a somewhat solution to this with the feature, “Not Quite Reviews” for books I haven’t actually reviewed.

Now. To actually do my not quite reviews. . . All of these books will most likely be done for Not Quite Reviews. Sometime.

Anyway, on to the list! A ton of these books will be familiar to you because they’ve probably all made several Top Ten Tuesdays as well as ’14 and ’15 “favorite books” of the year lists.

~One~

All The Bright Places

This was never reviewed because I had way too many feelings and I lost the notebook (sob) where I wrote the notes for this in.

~Two~

I'll Meet You There

This also gave me several feelings and I actually have several notes typed on my laptop that I wrote while reading.

~Three~

The DUFF

This is another book where I lost the notes for it. 😦

~Four~

Everything Everything

I did type up some notes for this, as well as using my Kindle note function for.

~Five~

Faking Normal

I’m so glad I finally read this book after buying it when it was on sale for Kindle. It’s a very “me” book and quite relatable.

~Six~

Fans of The Impossible Life

This was one of my favorite e-ARCs to have received and I even meant to do a One Day More post for it but…I never did. Sadly.

~Seven~

More Happy Than Not

I typed up thoughts for this one too!

~Eight~

The Night We Said Yes

~Nine~

Emmy and Oliver

Ditto above.

~Ten~

What We Saw

This was one of the most powerful books I’ve ever read and I actually had a review written somewhat but never finished. I was going to do a joint review with another book but never read or decided on the other book.

~Eleven~

Run Cover

I technically featured this one in my first Not Quite Reviews.

~Twelve~

Nowhere Near You

Ha. Of course that last one would be on the list. I am still not over it.


Is anyone else really bad with writing reviews? Do you have a favorite book you never reviewed due to not blogging or just having never written the review?
