TTT: Top 10 Reads of 2020

I know what you’re thinking–no top 10 fantasy?? Why am I even here?! I know that I’ve done a top five six middle grade, top ten contemporary, and top ten sequels, so while it might seem terrible that I’m not doing a top ten fantasy, well. More than half of these are fantasies, and while […]

TTT: Top 10 Sequel Reads of 2020

Yo whaaaaat, we got a top ten?? Look, I don’t put sequels on my general top ten reads because I like to only include books that are new to me, and I was going to do a top five for this list, but there were so many sequels this year that absolutely knocked it out […]

TTT: Top 10 Contemporary Reads of 2020

I read a lot of contemporaries this year. Out of # books (as of this posting), I’ve read 20+, and I don’t even have to look to know that’s more than any other year before. June was a heavy month for them, but I kept sprinkling them in whenever times were getting too tough, which […]

All I Want for Christmas

I’m nearly thirty, so I really don’t know why we’re still doing Christmas presents quite the way that we are, but when my mom asked me what I wanted this year, I said a rolling pin, and she said that wasn’t good enough, so I gave her a list of books that I’d end up […]

November Wrap-Up

This month just felt like constant chaos. I was tired more than I was not, and I know a lot of that had to do with NaNoWriMo, but I’m so looking forward to Christmas when I can just take a week off and not do anything. I didn’t get to read as much as I’d […]

Book Tag: End of Year

TTT: Top 20 Favorite Covers of 2020

I know this is hella unorthodox, a top twenty, and I could have easily solved this problem by just dropping all the non-2020 releases, but the way we roll is by doing whatever the hell I want, and I picked twenty covers right off the bat that I absolutely adored out of the books I […]

A Case for New Adult

A children’s book is generally marketed for readers around the age of 5-8, though it depends on when the child starts reading. Around 8, they’re probably ready for some light chapter books, which start to teeter toward the middle grade age range of 8-12. Eventually, and this is where it gets sticky, young adult comes […]
