My name in books.


I saw this over at Pretty Purple Polka Dots and thought it looked fun.


You basically have to find a book on your TBR that starts with each letter in your name.  Luckily my TBR is super long, so I had plenty of choices.  I thought the K would be tough, but I had quite a few on there.


K   Kill The Boy Band by Goldy Moldavsky

R   Release by Patrick Ness

I   Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

S   Speak Easy, Speak Love by McKelle George

T   This Monstrous Thing by Mackenzie Lee

I   Inkmistress by Audrey Coulthurst



Have you done this yet?  If so, link me to your post so I can check it out.



Down the TBR #3



Down the TBR is from lost in a story.


Down The TBR Hole is a meme that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when youre scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well thats going to change!

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?


TBR:  2578



I don’t even remember adding this, so I probably won’t miss it.

Reviews of Furthermore and Whichwood by Tahereh Mafi (one digital arc)




Alice Alexis Queensmeadow 12 rates three things most important: Mother, who wouldn’t miss her; magic and color, which seem to elude her; and Father, who always loved her. Father disappeared from Ferenwood with only a ruler, almost three years ago. But she will have to travel through the mythical, dangerous land of Furthermore, where down can be up, paper is alive, and left can be both right and very, very wrong. Her only companion is Oliver whose own magic is based in lies and deceit. Alice must first find herself—and hold fast to the magic of love in the face of loss.

These were all purchased from Barnes & Noble online.

First Lines Fridays 11/3/17




This is a weekly meme hosted by Wandering Words, where you give the first few lines of a book to hook your readers before introducing the book.


“It’s too damn cold of a day to be out on a hunt.

I shiver, tug my scarf up higher over my mouth, and wipe a few snowflakes from my lashes.  Then I slam my boot down on my electric skateboard.  The board is old and used, like everything else I own, its blue paint almost entirely scraped off to reveal cheap plastic underneath-but it’s not dead yet, and when I push my heel down harder, it finally responds, jerking me forward as I squeeze between two rows of cars.  My bright, rainbow-dyed hair whips across my face.”
