Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we’re talking about the books we wish our future children/nieces/nephews/godchildren/etc would read. Of course, in my experience, kids will read what they want to read, whatever their parents/aunts/uncles/godparents/etc’s wishes are. Continue reading “Ten Books I Want My Nieces/Nephew to Read”
WWW Wednesday on a Thurday! Oh well. I think until I properly get back into my previous pace, I will try to do WWW Wednesdays weekly. That way, I’ll at least keep the habit of posting on a weekly basis. Continue reading “WWW Wednesday (January 8th)”

They weren’t friends with each other, and at the beginning of this book, they had no interest in being friends with each other. Continue reading “The Sidekicks by Will Kostakis”
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we’re sharing ten unique book titles, so I decided to go with some of my favourite titles:

But in the end the promise of a capella and genderbending and queer poc characters won over, and I requested a copy. I am so glad I did.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is yummy food from books, and while normally I’d include ALL THE FOOD FROM ALL THE BOOKS (not to mention all the food-themed manga I read!), I decided to stick to these five:
