Top Ten Wishes I’d Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me

This wonderful meme was brought to us by The Broke and the Bookish. Be sure to head over there to check out previous and next Top Ten Tuesday topics.

1. Faster Reading Skills

Yes please! I’m a slow reader so I wish this one a lot. Every time I try to read fast I get the words mixed up and need to go back to make sense of things. I wish I was able to read faster, get threw a book faster so that I can start the next. Plus this would help with backing up and scheduling reviews. Who else is a slow reader?

Top Ten Intimidating Books

This wonderful meme was brought to us by The Broke and the Bookish. Be sure to head over there to check out previous and next Top Ten Tuesday topics.

Today’s topic on Top Ten Tuesday is supposed to be:

Top Ten Author Duos You’d LOVE To See Write A Book Together (aka my (Jamie’s) world would explode if Gayle Forman and Jandy Nelson wrote a book together) — might be hard to come up with 10 but still would be fun! Bonus points if you tell us what kind of book you’d like them to write!

But since I had a hard time thinking of 3 pairs I decided to choose an older topic I didn’t do: Intimidating books.

I think we all have books we find intimidating. Whether it’s because the book has a complex plot, a lot of hype surrounding it or because it’s thicker than a dictionary, we avoid them. And so I’ll tell you about ten books that I find intimidating.

This wonderful meme was brought to us by The Broke and the Bookish. Be sure to head over there to check out previous and next Top Ten Tuesday topics.

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Beach Bag Reads, and I don’t know about reading on the beach or the poolside because I actually like going in the water but here are some books that I’d like to read this summer. In the beginning on the summer my crave for contemporary books hit so I’m already looking for books and these are some that caught my attention.

Top Ten Favorite Booktubers

I love watching booktube. The people on there are friendly, open-minded, and just down right quirky at times. I actually found it through (I believe) Kat @Katytastic. She didn’t make my top ten list but she introduced me to the book part of booktube so I’m giving her a shout out. There are a whole BUNCH of booktube channels I love watching so this list was hard to make. To make it easier I’m list the booktubers I get most excited to see have uploaded a video. Booktube is actually one of the things that made me want to start a book blog and talk about books and write reviews. So yes, I love booktube!

In no particular order (cuz that would be torture):

1. Silke @aliterarykingdom

 

I love her energy in her videos. She’s a newer booktuber so go check her out. I was an early subscriber for her and absolutely love it when I see that she has uploaded a video.

 

2. Dylan @bookswithdylan

I love the quality of Dylan’s videos. He always has such HD videos and he’s just a great person which makes me love watching his videos. Another thing I love is that he really tries to comment back as much as possible.

Top Ten Words I Love

toptentuesday This wonderful meme was brought to us by The Broke and the Bookish. Be sure to head over there to check out previous and next Top Ten Tuesday topics. This is an interesting topic I ran into browsing the Top Ten Tuesday topics. I love words. There’s something beautiful about an expansive vocabulary. (I wouldn’t say I have an expansive vocabulary, but I’m working on it 😉 ) I love words based on the way they sound and/or their definition. Fun fact: ‘Eutony’ (Yoo-ton-ee) mean the pleasantness of a word’s sound. (yeah I’m gunna try to sneak in other words in this top “ten” 😉 ) Read More »

I love it when books come with cool/beautiful covers! In this list I’m not going to include any book from the special editions some publishing houses produce. example: Thread edition, the watercolor editions, the bloom edition, the ink edition and so on. If I did include them the list would be impossible to narrow down.
