Top Ten Tuesday: Books to Cozy Up to this Winter (#70)

11:11 PM

This weeks topic was a freebie. I originally was like: YES, let's do one about festive covers. The bad news is all the festive covers I can think of were in last weeks post. So, then I was like, oh let's go with books that remind me of SNOW and WINTER. That's simple enough, right? WRONG-O. My brain was not having it. So, I went generic and said, let's just list some cozy book for wintry nights. And that's apparently where I took this weeks topic.

Holiday Gift Guide | Some of My Favourite Bookish Gift Ideas

7:17 PM

Aside from the obvious choices (!!!BOOKS!!!! Gift-cards TO BUY MORE BOOKS!!! A slab of wood to fashion into their wall as another bookshelf SO THEY CAN BUY MORE BOOKS! A bookish gift through Book of the Month YA!!!) there are so many wonderful items out there for your favourite book hoarder nerd fan.  

Now that December is here, the time for gift giving has commenced! If you're feeling a bit (see: a lot) overwhelmed deciding what to buy, it's okay. I've got you covered on the inspiration front. Here are some of my favourite (and very specific and probably very biased) gift ideas for your local book lover.

Top Ten Tuesday: Holiday Reads (#69)

11:00 PM

And it is officially my favourite time of the year! Here's to hoping this year I can truly enjoy it. Now, I know that some of you do not celebrate Christmas, so if you don't, then here's your heads up that I will be talking about books that primarily center around the holiday.

Bishops Knife Trick | The Fall Out Boy Book Tag

4:33 PM

Everyone who knows me, knows that Fall Out Boy is my favourite band of all time. Growing up not far from the same area as they did contributed a lot to this! This statement isn't out of a place of "I was here first" and whatnot, but I can remember the days where they played smaller gigs. So when I say I've been a fan of them for what feels like forever, I'm not completely exaggerating.

When they made it big, I was SO impressed and overjoyed because they really do deserve it. They are one of those musical artists that have been with me through some of life's most pivotal moments and my love for them is basically a personality trait now.

And, not to drag myself, but in middle school I DEFINITELY wrote I HEART PATRICK STUMP on a good chunk of my notebooks. Oh, yes, that was completely on brand for me at the time. What can I say? MY LOVE WAS REAL. (Er, as real as a music obsessed then-teenager can manage when it comes to someone she's literally never met.)

So, you guys had to know that I'd be 100% down to participate in Raine Reads' Fall Out Boy Book Tag. I mean... duh.
