May 2017 Recap & What’s Coming Next

This month I really struggled with where to put my reads on the ratings list.  You see, rarely is a book exactly 5 stars, sometimes it’s only a 4.75… close enough to 5 that it shouldn’t be lumped in with the 4 star reads.  I’m honest to a fault.  I couldn’t say they were all […]

Top Ten Tuesday | Wanna read, in the Second Half!

I don’t know why it’s always so hard for me to come up with 10 books that I’m looking forward to.  There are so many books that I want to read, but most of them already come out or come out in 2018. So, anyway, here’s six of the books I’m most excited for.  Hopefully […]

Hatch Day Review | Symbols

About the Book: Violence is hard to escape because of the scars it leaves—on the body, the mind, and the heart. Small, skinny, and timid, Matt is the school’s punching bag. He suffers in silence and holds no hope anyone will come to his aid. The last thing on his mind is finding someone special. […]

The Greek Gods Book Tag

  I’m so excited to do this tag!  I’ve always loved the Greek Myths, and tried to soak up everything about them.  Even the pop culture stuff, like Xena and Hercules… I was addicted.

Baby Chick’s Pick | Five Favorite Supernatural Episodes

My Top Five Favorite Supernatural Episodes Supernatural is my life.  I eat, sleep, and breathe Supernatural.  I almost broke into tears when I got caught up.  Sam and Dean are kinda really sad and depressing, but they can be really funny and cute too.  I love the actors who play Sam and Dean, they’re really […]

Top Ten Tuesday | Happy Mother’s Day!

Ten Books with Stellar Mom’s! I spent a lot of time deliberating on what theme I should take with Top Ten Tuesday’s Mother’s Day theme.  I was actually leaning toward a post about mom’s who should be better.  Here’s the deal though, Mother’s work so hard and this day is supposed to be about celebrating […]

The Happiness Tag

I really like the tags that ask us about more than just books.  I usually feel like I’m forced to name the same books over and over.  Tags like The Happiness Tag make it possible for me to talk about new things.  (Though talking about myself is hard!) Thank you Meghan, for tagging me in […]

From Birdie’s Flock | Cat Reviews Tender Wings of Desire

I came up with this idea asking my loved ones if they would be interested in guest blogging on Birdie Bookworm.  I thought it would bring differing opinions, while helping me out with my blogging schedule. I’d like to introduce you to my work spouse, Cat, for getting it all started!  This is her first time on Birdie Bookworm, but what an amazing […]

Blog Tour | The Love Interest

I haven’t been shy about my need to get this book in my hands.  There’s a good chance it was my most anticipated read of 2017, so having the opportunity to read an advance copy was like a dream come true.  (To some may sound a little sad but I bet all you readers understand!)  Not […]

Flights of Fancy | Characters I Couldn’t Steal

I’ve got a new topic for you, one that might be a little strange, but it’s one my friend and I talk about.  Over and over.  A pretty much identical conversation each time it happens. We randomly start talking about the fictional characters that we love so much we want to rip them out of the […]

Top Ten Tuesday | Gimme the Good Stuff

10 Things I Need More Of When I read the topic for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday I didn’t think I’d be joining in.  It wasn’t until I went back to the list and reread that my mind started thinking of things I’d like to see more of in a book.  I realized how many […]

Manic Monday! | Sutphin Boulevard

A long time ago I heard all about this wonderful author named TJ Klune, and how I needed to jump on that bandwagon. The pressure to love him was high which frightened me.  Now he’s my favorite romance author, whom I spend a lot of time gushing about while kicking myself for wasting time! You’d have […]

Dreamy Book Covers Tag

I love book covers!  I love talking about the good ones, and whining about the bad ones.  I love when the cover is perfect for the story, and I actually pay attention to the depictions and models and notice when they don’t match the book descriptions.  I try my hardest to not judge a book […]

Reread 2017: Part 1 | Favorite Quotes!

I wasn’t sure how to celebrate my rereads for 2017.  I don’t really want to review them again, since my opinions haven’t changed.  I still think these books are awesome!  So, instead I’m going to post more of my favorite quotes throughout the year, from all the books I pick to reread.  This month it […]

Monthly Media Mashup

I’ve been a television watching machine these days!  I can’t believe we’re already halfway through Supernatural season 11!  Thank goodness we only have about a month left before season 12 hits Netflix because I’m going to be so sad when this ends!  I’m pretty addicted.  I don’t want to be caught up! Anyway, outside of […]

Top Ten Tuesday | Covers, The Best and Worst

The Best and The Worst from My 5 Favs! I ran through a few different idea’s for this week’s book cover topic on Top Ten Tuesday.  Things like, ‘worst covers for best books’ or ‘book cover makeovers’.  I just knew I wanted it to be something about terrible book covers.  For some reason bad book covers […]
