TTT // Top 10 Character Names I’d Give Whatever I Could Name (from books)

Alright, I have a small list of loved names on my phone, so I was pretty excited when I saw this one.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is “Ten Characters I’d Name A Child/Dog/Cat/Car/Etc. After”!

I don’t think I’d be able to choose who or what I’d use each name on… I like them all enough that I could name a pet or car or something after each one.

So here is my list in no certain order!

1. Kestrel

This one is from The Winner’s trilogy. I’ve only read the 1st book, but I adored her name. I didn’t immediately know it was the name of a bird until it was mentioned. But I just really like the sound of it. I also find her to be a tough character after reading The Winner’s CurseContinue reading TTT // Top 10 Character Names I’d Give Whatever I Could Name (from books)

TOPIC // What makes you DNF books? (Did Not Finish)

I’ve been curious about this. 

It’s very rarely that I actually DNF a book. Like, I’ve DNF-ed 2 books in the past that were in the middle of a series, but only recently DNF-ed 2 more – one being a standalone, the other a starter to a series. But I know some people really know to a T what they like and DNF way more often. Either way is totally fine!

I wonder, though, what makes you DNF, then?

I think I’ll just list off possible reasons, of course adding when it’s a reason for me, and see what y’all think. I think it’s really hard to get me to DNF a book, so let’s see how many I get, hah. Continue reading TOPIC // What makes you DNF books? (Did Not Finish)

TTT // 10 Books I’d Buy Right This Second If I Had A Fully Loaded Gift Card

OMG, I WISH I DID HAVE A FULLY LOADED GIFT CARD *breathes heavily*

I currently have a $20 one and am still trying to decide what to buy… I also worry I won’t like new ones after I’ve bought them…

The title says it all, folks. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish wherein us bloggers discuss the themed topic!

This is one I think EVERY bookworm can do, yeah?

I wish I was wealthy for the sole purpose of buying books. But most of us must fight our way to money made for purchasing beautiful blocks of paper and words (that we can sniff to our heart’s content).

Seriously, I’ve always bought and wanted to buy books over clothes, any day. (Yes, those words are clickable. Do it – it’s amusing.)

Lady Midnight

I still have only read the first 3 of TMI and I own TID, but that’s my TBR for August… So I’m behind. But I love the shadowhunting world and cannot wait to continue exploring. I’ve been seeing some amazing reviews and comments for it. Sounds like it has so superb characters, too.

TTT // Top 10 Things Books Have Made Me Want To Do or Learn About

Another Top Ten Tuesday post!

TTT was created by the Broke and the Bookish and this weeks theme is……*drum roll*…

Actually, I put it in the title, so….surprise! Top Ten Things Books Have Made Me Want To Do or Learn About After Reading Them! This one sounds so fun to me. Granted, I have to think back to everything books have piqued my interest toward, which took some time, but I did it!

Let’s just get right to it, then!


1. Travel

This will probably be a common one, but books really do make you want to travel! For example, after reading the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series by the magnificent Laini Taylor, I want to go to Prague SO. BADLY. That place is next on my list, whenever that may be… And the UK after reading books set there.

And even fantasy books make me want to travel, but to the hidden places – beautiful forests, old ruins, caverns, etc. I just want to find magical places.

My Bookish History Tag

So, I was thinkin’… We all started somewhere on our journey of metamorphosing into a bookworm, right?? I kind of remember where my journey started, where it reached a peak of no return. Childhood favorites, middle school favorites, high school hypes, etc. Some people, like me, can’t remember too much because they started so young. Others started more recently.

But I love hearing others’ childhood book treasures and what books really set them on the reading path! It’s a fun discussion to compare, see if we liked the same stories. So I looked online and couldn’t find a tag like this, so I decided to create one (^_^)

This tag doesn’t have a true specific set of rules except discussion! I have some questions to help set it off, but you can talk about whatever you want for your bookish history.  Continue reading My Bookish History Tag
