Top 5 Tuesday | Birdie’s 2018 Five Star Predictions!

I like predicting what upcoming reads are going to be 5 stars!  I think I’m pretty good at it, especially when it’s series/authors I know I already love, which is going to be most of the list. Here are my 2018 picks for five star reads! Top 5 Tuesday was started by Shanah at Bionic […]

Top 5 Tuesday | Books I Hated but others Didn’t!

Writing this up felt very familiar… maybe I’ve done something similar before.  If so, I’m totally writing it up again! Here are five books that are super popular, but I can’t get behind them even though I really wanna! Top 5 Tuesday was started by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm! The Rook by Daniel O’Malley […]

Top 5 Tuesday | Books I Lo- erm, LIKED but others Didn’t

I have a shameful secret… ready?? I’m very average in my tastes.  I tend to enjoy the books everyone enjoys.  I can’t think of one unpopular book I loved but I can think of some I liked… So, I’m going looser this week.  I will be curious to see what everyone else chooses. Next week’s […]

Top 5 Tuesday | 5 Fantasies that Need a Prequel

I’ve realized today that I don’t really wish for a prequel in any genre other than forms of Fantasy. There’s something about the start of some Fantasy novels that begs the question, ‘how did we get here?’  I don’t think any of these would be books with a happy ending, but I think I’d still […]

Top 5 Tuesday | 5 Contemporary Characters Who’d Win Survivor!

I thought I’d keep this season of Survivor fair by going with just regular ole characters from contemporary books.  No assassins, no wizards… just athletes, teenagers, and regular ole humans. I think it made it even more fun. Top 5 Tuesday was started by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm! Ryan Wesley Him & Us by […]

Top 5 Tuesday | 5 Contemporary!

I know so many of you may chuckle at me, because I’ve talked about a lot of these so many times.  I can’t help it.  I feel like this is calling for my favorites, and so I have be honest.  These are an array of my favorites. Top 5 Tuesday was started by Shanah at […]

Top 5 Tuesday | 5 Excellent Hype Books

I perpetually run from overly hyped books, so it wasn’t easy to come up with five.  I also noticed that most of them tend to be Fantasy, so when I do get bold it tends to only be in that genre. I have a feeling these may be on a few of our lists today. […]

Top 5 Tuesday | 5 Authors I Want to Meet

Today’s Top 5 Tuesday is all about authors you want to meet.  I’ve realized over the last few years that authors just don’t travel to Michigan, so basically this feels like a pipe dream because I never travel out of Michigan. Still, here are 5 of my favorite authors that I would love to see at a […]

Top 5 Tuesday | 5 Bookish Peeves

This week is bookish pet peeves, and I wasn’t sure if that meant peeves in the care of books or peeves in the plot choices.  I decided to go with plot choices… for no particular reason. It’s just what popped in my head first! I originally had this idea that I would include ‘when it […]

Top 5 Tuesday | 5 Happy Reads

Today’s Top 5 Tuesday is a freebie, and due to my reading choices right now I’ve decided to do 5 books that make me happy.  I’m all about the reads that make me feel light and airy.  I want to feel good the entire time, and I want to laugh.  Those were my requirements. Putting […]

Top 5 Tuesday | I Will Go Down with these Ships!

I’ve been looking forward to this week’s Top 5 Tuesday! I love talking about my favorite relationships, and I can’t wait to see what everyone else picked too! Oddly enough, I’ve just realized that I didn’t choose any YA stories at all.  There have been YA ships I’ve adored, but maybe (seeing as I’m 38) […]

Top 5 Tuesday | Rewarding Cover Buys!

This was SO hard!  I realized how rarely I actually buy a book on cover alone.  I usually base my selections off my friends reviews, authors I already like, or just my gut feeling.  With the five books below, my gut feeling wasn’t so sure, but there was no way I could pass up those […]

Top 5 Tuesday | Intimidating Books!

It’s funny this is the Top 5 Tuesday today, because intimidating books have been on my mind lately.  I was thinking about writing a Flights of Fancy about it, but now I get to talk about it right here. I’ve recently realized as I’ve gotten older my ability to read tomes has decreased.  It’s not […]

Top 5 Tuesday | Books I Should Talk About More

It’s time for another Top 5 Tuesday! This week is all about favorites we don’t talk about enough, which sounds like so much fun.  I feel like I’m constantly pushing my favorites, so this wasn’t easy.  I ended up picking five I don’t think I’ve talked about on Birdie Bookworm -At least not much. I […]

Top 5 Tuesday | Series I want to start in 2018!

This weeks Top 5 Tuesday was really eye opening!  I didn’t even realize how much I plan for Fantasy books to dominate my reading in 2018! 4 out of 5 series I chose below are Fantasy series, or a subtype of fantasy.  Huh… I guess I see what this years trend will be. Top 5 […]

Top 5 Tuesday | My 2018 Book Bucket list!

There are a LOT of books I meant to read last year, but I didn’t get to them.  It was a little hard narrowing it down to 5, so don’t hold me to it! The five I chose are ones that I stopped at the most, and almost picked them up.  In 2018, I’m definitely […]

Top 5 Tuesday | Books I Want for Christmas!

I have this thing about other people surprising me with books.  I kind of feel like a readers tastes are as unique as our fingerprints.  No two readers will ever love all of the same books.  Most of the time I don’t end up reading the gift, because it doesn’t interest me, and then I […]

Top 5 Tuesday | New Authors I love!

Wow, setting up this weeks Top 5 Tuesday taught me something!  I discovered a lot of my favorite authors in 2016! You know what else I learned?  2017 was my year for discovering authors due to Blogging!  Every single one of selection can be attributed to other bloggers raving. I guess I really have all […]

Top 5 Tuesday | Five Warm Winter Reads

I have a hard time coming up with seasonal books.  I don’t really read any books based on season.  Luckily I did have 4 that popped into my mind when I started thinking about wintery/Christmasy books that I loved. I chose two from my childhood, one from my teenage years, and two I read in […]

Top 5 Tuesday | I Demand a Spin Off! -Pretty Please?

I don’t know what it is about series, but I’m never ready for it to end.  I’m one of the readers that always want more, even if it’s in a spin off. I’m not sure why I am so eager, it’s not like I haven’t been burnt before.  Sometimes series should end! Anyway, this weeks […]

Top 5 Tuesday | 5 Reasons I Blog!

Top 5 Tuesday was started by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, and it’s so much fun! Thanks Shanah! I have a feeling we all blog for similar reasons. I mean, I think our number one reason for blogging is self-expression, no matter what subject we’re all writing about.  Our blogs are our opportunity to unload. I’ve […]

Top 5 Tuesday | My 5 Autobuy Authors

Top 5 Tuesday was started by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, and I jumped on board for November, because her choices were awesome!  Thanks Shanah! This was HARD!! I know we can go more than 5, but it feels like cheating so I’m forcing myself to cut it down.  I had to do a pro/con […]
