Top Ten Tuesday- Autobuy Authors

Image
Hello! Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday. This weekly meme is hosted by Jana @thatartsyreadergirl. This meme was born out of a love of lists. Our topic this week is Autobuy Authors.




1- Rainbow Rowell

Shocking I know. Just kidding, I have not read her whole catalog, but I've read most of them. My favorite I've read by her is Fangirl. I love her style and her way with characters.

2- Sarah J. Maas

One of my favorite Fantasy Authors! My favorite book by her is A Court of Mist and Fury. I read the whole A Court Of Thorns and Roses series last year, and I love it so much. What I love most about Maas is her ability to draw you into a world and have characters you want to root to see win in the end. A Court of Thorns and Roses is the only series I've read by her. 
Parade,

3- John Green

I used to be on a Gilmore Girls forum back in the day, like over ten years ago now, I met and became close with a few of the members there. My love for John Green is all thanks to them. I have almost…

Pool Party Booktag for Bookending Summer!!!

Image
Hello! I am taking part in an event called Book Ending Summer. I had a lot of fun with the first event so I wanted to do this one as well. For those that don't know Bookending Events is a month long event with prompts, but all you have to do is post 3 blogs. The prompts and blogs are here. Theresa created this tag thecalicobooks.  Let's get to the tag!

OWNS THE POOLFirst thing’s first! If you’re going to have a pool party, you’re going to need a pool. I will pick Rhys from A Court of Thorns and Roses Series. He has money, so he would have a very nice pool that should be able to fit everyone. Plus, he probably would own several pools, so it's even better.  HAS ALL THE BEST PARTY GAMESThis is the person who is going to make sure all the classic pool party games are played! Jessica Stone from Geekerella and The Princess and the Fangirl. Jess might like to be normal, but also she is very fun and screams the life of the party to me. Also, seeing as she would want to play the gam…

Top Ten Tuesdays- Favorite Female Characters I want to hang out with

Image
Hello! Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday. This weekly meme is hosted by Jana @http://www.thatartsyreadergirl.com/. The purpose of this meme is to write a list based on a prompt for that week. Our prompt for this week is a character freebie. I am going to be honest that this list started off as my favorite characters. Upon thought I wanted to do something more creative and so this is female characters I want to hang out with. I realize some of these are classics, but I have a plan for those. I mean all but one of these to take place in Modern Day 2019.
1- Cather Avery from Fangirl
I am sure you’re all shocked to see her on this list, just kidding. Anyway, I love Cath so much and I really have a connection to Cath as a character. Cath and I would go to the library and just chat. Cath and I both have a love of fandom and both write fan fics. I have never been to Nebraska, so I think it would be fun to just hang out in her hometown, and she could tell me all the cool places. I believ…

Musical Monday’s Oklahoma

Hello! As you may know, on Monday’s on the blog I do a series of blogs I call Musical Monday’s. This started off as a series where I would feature lesser known musicals I loved that others might not know. Since the creation of this series, I have expanded to musicals that are more popular and widely known. This week, I wanted to discuss my thoughts on Oklahoma.
plot 4/5
Yes, I know that this musical has problematic plot points with Jud, which is why I docked a full star off my rating. Our plot follows two lovers, Laurey and Curly and I enjoy their relationship. When I go to a musical, or get into a musical I look for a plot element I can fall in love with. With the case of Oklahoma, it is the romance and the tale of young lovers. The other relationship in the musical is Ado Annie and Will, this is another couple whose relationship I enjoy. Family is a common theme found in Oklahoma with Laurey’s aunt and I love how much those two characters care about each other. The family aspec…

The 2019 Mid Year Freak Out Booktag

Hi! I saw so many people do this and I wanted to join in on the fun! I know it's a little past the half way point, but I still wanted to upload this booktag.

What is the best book that you’ve read so far in 2019?

This question is never easy. I have read many great 5 star reads so far. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. If you know anything about this book, you probably know why it was my favorite so far. I followed the hype on this book, and this novel is so worth the hype. I was feeling all the emotions at once. This was my first time reading Taylor Jenkins Reid, however, I was reading Daisy Jones and the Six at the same time. I still preferred the characters and the story of this novel.
What has been your favourite sequel of the first half of the year?
I’ve only read two sequel’s this year so far and one stands out as more of a favorite. My favorite sequel was The Wicked King by Holly Black. I know that some fans didn’t love The Cruel Prince but enjoye…

Top Ten Tuesday-Childhood Faves

Image
Hello! It's Tuesday again which means another Top Ten Tuesday. Our host is Jana -http://www.thatartsyreadergirl.com/. This week it was childhood favorites and I am so excited because I had so much fun putting this list together. Every book on this is a memory and a favorite from ages 1-12. I don't remember when I started reading them, but I definitely didn't put books from my teen years on here.  Full disclosure, the end of this list was books from my teens but I took them off because I wanted to feature more of my childhood.

One small story before we get to the list. I had a tape, and it might still be around somewhere, but it is my god mother reading a story. I think they recorded it when I was having hip surgery when I was two or when my younger sister was born. I can't remember what the book was, so the book might be on the list. Another thing you will see is that my Grandmother gave a lot of books when I was a child, and that I read a ton of series as a kid.
