Top Ten Tuesday – Favorite Book Blogs/Bookish Websites

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018!

I think that my first thought for this was, only 10??? How the hell am I supposed to choose out of this huge list I have of amazing people and websites that are out there? I mean, damn.

In past weeks, I’ve struggled to come up with some. This week, I’m going to struggle to narrow it to ten.

Survey Results!

Okay, everyone! Here are the results that I’m sure you all have been waiting for. A couple weeks ago, we made a post about wanting to help make an impact in the book community by providing a book buying/lending service for people to submit requests through.

This is still in the very early stages, but we want to share results with you about what we found from doing this!

Down the TBR Hole

Down the TBR Hole

Down the TBR Hole is a meme created by Lia @ Lost in a Story.

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well that’s going to change!

IT WORKS LIKE THIS:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

This week I actually got a bit bored at work after seeing books come up on my Goodreads feed that were on my TBR, so that prompted me to skim and delete books that had me go wtf at myself.

First Lines Friday

First Lines Friday

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

The Entertainer Book Tag

Here we are, late to the party again. But, we got tagged by Sara @ The Bibliophagist! Thank you for the great questions! You should check her out and follow her if you don’t already!

This doesn’t exactly have rules, but it looks like you ask six questions and tag some people if you so choose!

Top Ten Tuesday – Books You’d Mash Together

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018!

Another Top Ten Tuesday! This time, the prompt is super interesting, but I’m only going to do five pairs, so ten books total. I’m lazy and I doubt I can come up with 20 books! I actually really struggled to get this put together because there were multiple books I wanted to pair with each other and I wanted to do ten unique books/pairings.

But, here we go!

Book review – My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, and Brodi Ashton

Caidyn's review (1)

Caidyn: Today is a very special day for me. That being, it's the third anniversary of the day I changed my name. Why is that such a big deal? Because I'm trans and that means I no longer had to go by my dead name. That day was so special and I'm so grateful that I had the ability to do it. Not all transpeople have those resources. . So, in honor of this day, I'm reading some of my highest anticipated reads! One, obviously is My Plain Jane. I had my first every @owlcrate box and I am so glad I own this book! I loved My Lady Jane so I'm excited. . I'm also going to read The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by @themackenzilee and Bedfellow by @jeremycshipp ! . #bookstagrammer #transman #transvisibility #myplainjane #bedfellow #theladysguidetopetticoatandpiracy
