Hey, hey! How are you today? I’m back with a very fun post I saw on Aurora Librialis‘ blog, originating from The Artsy Girl‘s weekly Top Ten Tuesday meme. Basically, I’m selecting my favorite books from the last ten years, not based on when I read them but on their publication year—and it was harder than I thought it would be! So many of my favorite books came out in the same year >:[. Naturally, I’m late to the party, but I couldn’t resist doing this one, and I hope to do more in the future.
And if doing this list proved anything, it’s that my tastes are still so predictable yet also consistent.
Hey, everybody! Recently, I saw a trend on Twitter going around, asking people what books were “their brand.” In other words, what books represent you—body, heart, mind, and soul? It’s more than asking what books you’d bring with you on a deserted island, but rather what books you carry with you always because they speak to every fiber of your being.
Plus, I think it’s a great way to get to know other readers and what their interests are.
I’ll be tagging some folks to do this, but if you like this post and want to do your own, please feel free and tag me with your answers! You can also do however many books you want. The Twitter post originally called for five, but I had to do ten, you feel me?
Hey, everyone, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Coming at you with a very last minute post, but I saw this on Sofii’s blog @ A Book. A Thought. (sorry I keep stealing your tags, but you choose some very fun and creative ones!) and I had to join in.
The Christmas season is always a hectic time for me, but also a nostalgic one. I love looking back on the year and what I accomplished as well as reminisce about times long past. What better way to do that this year than with all the books I’ve read?
Title:Wintersong Author: S. Jae-Jones Genre: Young Adult, New Adult, Fantasy Version:Paperback Page Count: 511 Publisher: Titan Books Ltd Synopsis:GoodReads Notable Notables: Feminism, LGBT characters Recommended Readers: Y’all like Labyrinth, Fae, and villain love interests? Rating: ★★★★★
What can I say about Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones that others haven’t already said before? It’s haunting, dark, mesmerizing, lush, spellbinding, and full of such melancholic longing that the feelings stay with you well after you’ve turned the final page. It’s hands-down one of my favorite novels ever written, in any genre, and I’m stunned by Jae-Jones’ craftsmanship. Every line within is such a treasure and a joy to read, and I’m in love with the beauty of her style.
Plus, I don’t often reread books anymore. I just don’t have time and my TBR pile is out of control. But exceptions were made for Wintersong because it just made me fall in love in a way no other book has done for me lately.
