All the love from James & Jaclyn

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

You guys! I’m beyond excited about today’s topic because I love following other bloggers. The book blogging community is this tight niched bunch of lovely ladies that I’ve enjoyed having the privilege of getting to know. Many of these ladies have taken the time to help me answer questions and figure out how to improve my blog and many have even become close friends.

Every month I pick a spotlight another book blogger as my way of showing that I really what you’re doing and I support you. It becomes even more fun when you both share the passion for the same books. In fact, many of the books I’ve often picked up were because of other bloggers.

And that’s what I get to talk about today! Today we’re talking about some of my favorite bookish bloggers.  Continue reading

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

Happy Tuesday!

Do you ever start a series and you realize it just isn’t for you so you give up on it? That’s today’s theme.

Now I usually will finish a series until the very end so I rarely ever decide to give up on a series. Although, there are some that I totally forget that there were new books so it might either take me longer to get to them or I just decide that it’s been too long. It happens.

Here are some of the series that I gave up on. Continue reading

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

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.
