Top 5 Tuesday | Hyped by Mom, but I Won’t Read ’em!

Top 5 Tuesday!  There are a few reasons I won’t read books my mom recommends.  First, they tend not to be my style at all.  They are exceptionally dense and heavy reads, which I’ve mentioned before I can’t handle lately. Also, I have a mental block when it comes to my mom’s books.  Maybe I […]

Top 5 Tuesday | Gimme MORE Trope-Types!

Top 5 Tuesday!  My favorite tropes, and ones that I’d love to see more of.  The idea of ‘tropes’ has always been a tricky one for me.  I think all books follow similar plot lines.  There are only so many out there, and the specifics are what makes each book better or worse. These are […]

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) […]
