Top Ten Tuesday: Book Titles with Numbers In Them (#60)

11:08 PM

Insert a variety of very bad, very dad "I've got you number" jokes here. I mean, I would, but, I don't want to embarrass myself TOO severely this week. Who says people can't change? That's what I call character development. (Also, side note: I'm sorry for being so slow in replying to comments this week. I "accidentally" got too attached to Instagam again and it kind of distracted me in free time!)

Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Fall 2019 TBR (#59)

11:03 PM

It's time to fall into reading! Here are ten of the books on my TBR for autumn. I'm not including what I plan to attempt to reread. Let's face it: I probably won't get to a good chunk of these books because I am THE WORST as we all know. But, I'm optimistic every now and again and it seems today is one of those days?

House of Night Reread | Marked by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast

11:31 PM

I've taken down all my reviews of the series--except for one, I think--because (a) they are garbage (and SO old) and (b) I wanted a clean slate when it came to my thoughts of the series. After I reread the Vampire Academy novels back in April-June, I found myself feeling a bit nostalgic for this particular era of YA. And then, on a whim, decided to give House of Night a reread as well. Whitney and I will be rereading book two in the series (Betrayed) starting this weekend, if you're interested in joining in!

Blog Tour, Photo Journal + Mood Board: The Prom by Saundra Mitchell, Bob Martin, Chad Beguelin and Matthew Sklar

6:30 AM

There are two things I love above all else music(al theatre) and literature. When they are combined? I will probably burst out into a musical number. I'm all sparkly prom dresses and songs right now just thinking about The Prom. My review will follow later this week, but until then--I'm so ecstatic to be participating in the blog tour. And, as a side note, to those who are concerned: the finished copy does NOT change any of the characters sexuality--I know this was a concern earlier on via the ARC!

Tag, You're It! | Romance Book Tag

1:34 AM

I tried to write a little introduction for this post but in the end all I did was hum, "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" because that's how my mind operates. Also, I'm too excited to write something witty.
