Top Ten Tuesday – Those Books From Wayback When ?!

August 23: Ten Books That Have Been On Your Shelf (Or TBR) From Before You Started Blogging That You STILL Haven’t Read Yet (this is going to be sad considering how many of those I have unread six years later…), the weekly topic provided by The Broke & Bookish

Oh joy! What an easy topic to discuss because my shelves are so jam packed with books from forever ago! Each time I switch things around on my big shelf, I also discard a few more because I think, ugh I’m probably never going to read you–you need a better home than just collecting dust on my shelf!

So yes, let’s discuss this, shall we . . . . . . .

At the end of 2013, I decided I might start blogging. I tried here and there but in 2014, I attended my first ALA Mid Winter conference which was held in Philadelphia and walked away with a pretty decent stack of books! Since then I STILL have some great ones that I have not even cracked the spines on! Let’s examine what needs to be read still:


Guess I need another ARC reading challenge month to help me out with this round of titles 😁

Top Ten Tuesday – Best Books Read in 2015

December 15: Top Ten Best Books I Read In 2015, the weekly topic provided by The Broke & Bookish

I feel like I haven’t read a ton this year. Yes, my Goodreads clocks in at 69 books read but like some previous posts said, I read a lot of comics, individual issues give it that larger number. There’s also a bunch of titles that I’ve had on my shelves but actually hadn’t read–despite needing to buy upon release–so my list are just overall favorite reads of the year.




Tough choices seeing as I could add a few honorable mentions but I think this was a good list! Again, a tough reading year but definitely finally read some top choices!

See you next week 🙂 xx Linz aka The Kid

Top Ten Tuesday – Book to Movie Adaptations

November 10: Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I’m Looking Forward To If They’re Ever Filmed, the weekly topic provided by The Broke & Bookish

I want to change this because I’m the harshest critic when it comes to book to film adaptations, so I’m listing all of the books I wish were done properly–by the book, pun unintended, and satisfied my standards fit for screen. Guys, I’m a serious movie snob so this is no shocker.



Right now I’m pretty sure these titles aren’t being worked on, their rights might be sold, but I don’t think there’s any pre-production involved. Would love to see and can’t WAIT to see them all 🙂

Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR

September 22: Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR, the weekly topic provided by The Broke & Bookish

Yay for Fall’s arrival! Here are some of the titles I’m looking forward to start reading this Fall season…some hyped, some continued in their series, some I’ve just put off for forever, and some that will set the mood for . . . . ALL HALLOW’S EVE! MUWAH AH AH AHHHHH




What are some of the titles you’re looking forward to this Fall? Any of them Autumn-themed? Halloween-y? Dark and scary or light and airy? I’m always ready to add new titles to my shelf! The TBR list literally just continues forever


Top Ten FREEBIE – My September Reads List

September 15: Top Ten FREEBIE week, the weekly topic provided by The Broke & Bookish

Right before September started I made a list of all of the things I wanted to accomplish for the whole month! Interestingly enough, I had 10 novels on my list that I was hoping I’d get time to read. Some are new releases, some are ARCs, a book club pick, and other books I definitely should have been reading forever ago. Behold my list:



And as of today, I’ve already marked these three off my list!

Have you read any of these titles?? Am I gonna love them? Mostly YA, some serious, some creepy, some a continuation–so far I’m off to a pretty decent start 🙂
