August 2019: The Month I Read.. Who Cares, Look At These Puppy Pictures!! {Monthly Wrap Up}

August wrap up

Hi everybody, and welcome to my August wrap up!

As some of you may already know from my social media, this month is a little special because WE GOT A PUPPY! It means I didn’t get quite so much reading or TV in as I usually would, but it’s okay because PUPPY! That said, I’ll get back to the puppy below and get more into what I actually did read, watch and listen to this month first 🙂

My Favorite Binge-Worthy TV Shows {Top Ten Tuesday}

180904 Binge-Worthy TV Shows

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

With the new TV season starting, today is all about binge-worthy TV shows! (Because it doesn’t always have to be about books). Now, I used to be a huge tv show junkie. Meaning, I followed about 10-15 shows religiously and watched them every evening as soon as they came out. Lately, I’ve almost stopped that completely. Why?

One, because a lot of shows I used to love just seem to go on too long and I end up losing interest.
Two, because I started preferring binge-watching shows with shorter seasons over weekly watching shows with longer seasons.

To me, shorter seasons make for tighter storylines and are just much more fun to binge-watch. I watch them for a certain period, as long as it takes me to finish them, and then I move on to the next tv show. So these are a few of my latest binge-watch obsessions!

May 2018: The Month of Finales, Sequels & Spin-Offs {Monthly Wrap Up}

May 2018

Hi everybody, and welcome to my May wrap up!

May was one of those months which seemed to last forever, but that’s only because I feel like I did so much. Every day has been a hustle from beginning to end, and I am both exhausted and happy. I’ve also been a terrible blogger since I am so behind on comments and bloghopping I may never catch up again, but I swear I have good reasons which I’ll explain later in this post. So please forgive me and catch up with what I did in May:

TV Characters That Deserved Better {Top Ten Tuesday}

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Do you know the saying “You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain”?

I feel that way about tv shows. They either get cancelled too early, or they just go on for too long and end up messing up in one way or another. Especially when it comes to their characters. No matter how much I can love a show, nothing annoys me quite as much as a badly or unfairly handled character. So today, I decided to focus on a few of the characters that I feel deserved better.

Note: this list contains spoilers so proceed with caution.

Oops, I Don’t Care Anymore — Books I’m No Longer Interested In Reading {Top Ten Tuesday}

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about the books I’m just no longer interested in reading. This was a tough one for me because I don’t like to say never. Who knows, I might change my mind and still want to read these later… But for now, I’m scratching them off my TBR.

Note: this is just a personal opinion. If any of these are your favorites, I’m sorry. You can always (kindly) let me know if you think I should keep them on my TBR though 🙂

February 2017: The Month Of Kitsunes, Greek Myths, Shinigamis and… Spider-Man Music? {Monthly Wrap Up}

February 2017

Hi and welcome to my February wrap up!

February has been filled with many new obsessions. I don’t think I’ve ever read more in my life, I fell in love with a new fantasy book series on Japanese mythology, I got back into some Greek mythology fantasy books, I fell deeper into the black hole that is anime and I discovered some new (to me) music.

But… it also caused a bit of a blogging slump and for that I’d like to apologize to my blogger friends. I’ve been so sucked into my new obsessions that I’ve been slacking on blogging. I haven’t felt like writing a lot of posts so I stuck with just the basic: Top Ten Tuesday posts and reviews. I’ve also been so behind on commenting. So… I’m really sorry! Here’s hoping March will be better on that front.

Anyway, here’s my wrap up of all those obsessions:

Top Ten Fictional Character Crushes {Top Ten Tuesday}

170228 TTT Fictional Crushes

Hosted by The Broke & The Bookish

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s a freebie, so I thought I’d take this time to talk about some of my all-time favorite fictional character crushes!

One of the most important things for me when reading a book or hearing a story are the characters. I crush on fictional characters all the time. In fact, if I don’t fall in love with any of the characters, chances are I don’t like the book as much, no matter the writing or plot. I NEED to feel things for the characters. I NEED to fall in love with them for some reason. I NEED to be thinking about certain characters long after finishing the book or turning off the tv.

So, while this list is soo much longer than ten (but hey, we’ve got to start somewhere), I give you a list of the first ten characters that came to mind when I thought about fictional crushes. This list will contain characters from books as well as from TV or movies. And, to limit myself a bit more, I chose only one character per series, though this was quite hard in some cases as well.

So without further ado, let’s get started!
