top ten tuesday_

Hello and welcome to Top Ten Tuesdays hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl!

Happy Tuesday!

There’s just something beautiful about summertime and the beach. I love to lay out on the beach and read while getting a tan. There is just something calming, relaxing, and soothing about reading a good book on the beach.

It’s also the perfect setting for a contemporary romance, rom-com, or a mystery to indulge in.

For today’s Top Ten Tuesdays, I’m sharing about my summer TBR for the beach! Here is what mine looks like. I’m hoping to read all of them before summer ends. Wish me luck! Continue reading

Top Ten Tuesday: DNFed Books

top ten tuesday

Hello and welcome to Top Ten Tuesdays hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl!

This is a topic that is highly debated about which really made me think about why I don’t usually DNF books. Every now and then I make myself DNF a book though.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with what DNF means, it means “Did Not Finish.” So basically it is any book that you have started reading part way through and not finish it.

I think part of the reason why I rarely DNF a book is because no matter how much a book doesn’t capture my attention, I have to know if it gets any better and see how it ends. I feel like DNFing a book means I’m leaving a book unread and therefore I feel guilty. Most books that I’m just not enjoying I can usually push through, but there are some books that I just can’t do it with.

When I DNF a book, the content or the writing has to be pretty bad. Otherwise, I will always finish the book.

That’s what we’re discussing today.

Here are some of the books that I’ve DNFed over the years.

Bookish worlds I'd Never Want To Live in

Hello and welcome to Top Ten Tuesdays hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl!

Books can literally take readers anywhere in the world they want to travel, even fictional worlds. Many like Hogwarts and Middle Earth many would love to actually be able to visit. Yet, there are some that we may enjoy reading about, but would never actually want to live there. That’s what today’s topic is about.

Here are some of the worlds I wouldn’t ever want to live in.

Disclaimer: Some of these may not be completely family friendly due to some violence found in some books.

Top Five Tuesdays: Books I Disliked But Am Glad I Read

Top Ten Tuesdays

Hello and welcome to Top Ten Tuesdays hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl!

You’ve picked up that popular book that everyone is raving about, but you thought it was awful. However, you can’t completely hate it because you also found yourself glad that you read it at the same time?

Rarely does this happen to me because I have a habit of choosing books that I know ahead of time that I will enjoy ahead of time. However, this happens from time to time. There are books that my close friends will rave about but I can still have discussions about it even I didn’t like it.

Here are some of the book that I disliked, but I’m glad that I read.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Loved but Will Never Re-Read Again

Top Ten Tuesdays

Hello and welcome to Top Ten Tuesdays hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl!

Today’s topic is about books that I loved but will never re-read again. This is probably a bad thing to say as a reader, but I almost never re-read books. I always keep the books I love on the shelf because I love looking at them, running my fingers along the cover, and looking back on fond memories with hopes that I will return to them again. There are so many books out there in the world and so little time so I never manage to re-read them. Well, sometimes I do if it’s an absolute favorite and I’m in one of those awful reading slumps. So I thought for today’s topic that I would mostly focus on favorite childhood books that I loved, but now as an adult, unless I end up getting married and having kids, will probably never re-visit again.
