I could have sworn I did this tag once before but I guess not! This does mean I’ll run out of fall book tags at some point though, thank goodness that day is not today. If you would like to check out more fall book tags I will list the others I have done:

I found this tag on A Novel Glimpse and it was created by Sam @ Novels and Nonsense.

Top Ten Tuesday(9)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.

It has now been moved over to That Artsy Reader Girl.

This is easily one of the most fun and tricky Top Ten Tuesday posts I’ve done, it’s always fun to give shout outs to my fave bloggers but at the same time how do I pick just ten?! I also tried to only include bloggers who are producing content currently. Of course there are so many more though!

****These are in no particular order and PLEASE remember that this list is by no means ALL of my favorite blogs/bloggers so don’t feel excluded if you aren’t listed here! I love you all! ****

The Cheesy Goodness Tag

Copy of Top Ten Tuesday(6)

I was tagged by my blogging buddy Destiny @ Howling Libraries, please go check out her awesome blog guys she posts super consistently and is the sweetest person ever!

I saw this tag and knew I had to do it, “Why?” you might ask. Well because I am a cheese addict and you might laugh at that but I’m serious. Dead serious. I’ve had a problem with eating too much cheese since I was a toddler, and will I stop? Never! So I’m excited to do this because I love books AND cheese.

The Rules
1. Pingback the original creator (Sydney @ Fire and Rain Books) so she can see all your cheesy goodness answers.
2. Pingback the person who tagged you!
3. Have fun!

Christmas Song Book Tag

Top Ten Tuesday(11).jpg

It’s time for another Christmas tag! I found the questions for this over on Stephanie’s blog at Adventures of a Bibliophile, so be sure to head over and check out her answers as well!

“You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch”: Name a villainous character you couldn’t help but love.

Image result for victor vale

This one is more in a grey area than anything since he’s not just straight up a villain but I loved Victor Vale from “Vicious”! He just had those moments that made me love him, especially with how he treated Sydney and Mitch.


“All I Want for Christmas is You”: Which book do you most hope to see under your Christmas tree?

Image result for 10th anniversary edition of the name of the wind

Well of course there are many but I would LOVE the 10th anniversary edition of “The Name of the Wind” by Patrick Rothfuss since it’s just so gorgeous! I NEED IT!


“Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”: Name a character that overcomes major obstacles and learns to believe in themselves.

Image result for the hate u give

I think Starr Carter from “The Hate U Give” fits this bill perfectly, a powerful character to match a powerful novel.


“Santa Claus is Coming to Town”: a) Which character do you think would be on the top of the naughty list? b) Which character do you think would be at the top of the nice list?

I’m agreeing with Stephanie on the first one, Umbridge is definitely at the top of the naughty list eternally. As far as the nicest character I’m just going with Taylor from “Queens of Geek” because she is honestly such a pure person and I loved her.


“Frosty the Snowman”: Which book just melts your heart.

Image result for queens of geek

Once again going with “Queens of Geek” which is very romance based and I loved every minute of it.


“Feliz Navidad”: Choose a book that takes place in a country other than your own.

Image result for bad blood book

I absolutely loved the Scotland setting in this book!


“It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”: Which holiday themed book do you use to spread the Christmas joy?

Image result for the night circus

I don’t read Christmas-y books…..at all…..because Christmas really isn’t my favorite holiday especially when it comes to books and movies and TV. I suppose if I could pick a non Christmas themed book though I’d go with “The Night Circus”.


“Sleigh Ride”: Which fictional character would you choose to spend the holidays with (doesn’t have to be a love interest!)

Hands down, Fred and George Weasley.


“Baby it’s Cold Outside”: Which book that you didn’t like would you sacrifice to a fire to warm yourself up in the cold?

Image result for blackhearts book

Forever “Blackhearts” because I am never going to forgive that synopsis. Don’t promise me pirates and a Blackbeard origin story and then give me a glorified hist-fic romance instead!


“Do You Hear What I Hear”: Which book do you think everyone should read?

Image result for the hate u give

“The Hate U Give”! I could sit and chant this one all day. Read it!

I tag anyone who wants to give this one a go!

The Thanksgiving Book Tag!

Top Ten Tuesday(5)

I figured I’d get a little bit ahead of the game and do my Thanksgiving Book Tag a couple days early! This tag was created by Erin & Becca and I found the tag over on Mama Kat’s Losin’ It.

(I also have reviews up for all of the books mentioned)

my page divider

1. Bread- What book is purely fluff, and has no real plot line?

Image result for queens of geek

As much as I adored and worshiped “Queens of Geek” it really is the kind of book that’s all fluff and no plot, the plot is some friends going to a convention but mostly the book focuses on the characters themselves and romances. I loved it though, this book is seriously amazing.


2. Turkey- What book made you want to fall asleep?

Image result for blackhearts

So, so, so boring/ I’m sorry but when you market a book as an origin tale for Blackbeard I expect some action and PIRACY! Not a hist-fic romance full of tropes and a love interest that is borderline abusive. No. This was so slow that you’re dang right I would have rather been sleeping.


3. Gravy- What book makes the whole series worth reading?

Image result for the wicked and the divine

This series is worth reading all the way through…well at least up until the latest issue since it’s not finished yet! Everything is well done from the world building to the characters and the art is seriously gorgeous!


4. Stuffing- What book is stuffed full of action scenes?

Image result for the diabolic

Once you get past the first couple of chapters that set up the story it’s non stop action from there! Tons of plot twists, seriously, tons. This book will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time you’re reading it!


5. Mashed Potatoes- What book looked good, and then wasn’t?

Image result for the beast is an animal

This cover is insanely gorgeous but the book was just really slow and confusing as hell. I still don’t really know what the whole point of the book was or what even happened.


6. Cranberries- What book has the sweetest romance?

Image result for the forbidden wish

There’s actually a couple romances that I like but I would have to say Aladdin and Zahra are one of my absolute favorites. Their romance was slow burn and forbidden which are two big things I look for in bookish romances. They are so adorable, also the rest of the book is fantastic as well!


7. Corn- What’s the corniest book you’ve ever read?

Image result for paper  princess

I don’t tend to go for books that can end up being corny, but I suppose one I kind of consider corny is “Paper Princess” since it really isn’t a story I take seriously. It’s one of those stories I read for the entertainment and shock value.


8. Green beans- What book is too long and needs to be shortened?

Image result for these shallow graves

Seriously! Why was this book 488 pages?! Why?! It has no business being that long! It’s a slow, hist-fic romance with a very boring mystery that’s hardly a mystery. So yeah it really doesn’t need to be 488 pages of a little plot and a lot of filler.


9. Pumpkin Pie- What book do you read to get out of a reading slump?

Image result for nimona

I don’t really re-read books ever so I don’t have a “go-to” book for reading slumps but I usually try and read something I know I’ll love. However, if I was going to re-read something it’d probably be a graphic novel such as “Nimona”.


10. Dog/Cat- What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food that you would steal from the table?

Image result for stuffing thanksgiving

Stuffing, definitely stuffing. I could sit and eat nothing but stuffing and be perfectly fine. I also adore cranberries too though…just saying.

Trick or Treat Round The Block Book Tag

Top Ten Tuesday (27)

I found this  tag over on Hardback Hoarder’s channel so be sure to head over and check out her video of this tag as well! This is probably going to be my last Halloween themed book tag but maybe I’ll squeeze in another, you never know.

This tag was created by The Bookish Porcupine.

my page divider

1.) Creepy house on the corner of the street: Book with a creepy cover

Image result for shutter courtney alameda

It’s definitely one of the creepier covers I have seen! Also my current read and so far it’s not disappointing!


2.) Lights out (party poopers): A book you want to read when you want to escape

Image result for strange the dreamer

Fantasy is always good to me for this and so I’ll pick a fantasy book on my TBR that I’m hoping will be completely immersive! I adore Laini’s writing style so I sure I’ll adore this book as well.


3.) The house that gives out the cheap candy: Guilty pleasure book

Image result for paper princess

Definitely “Paper Princess”. While I do mention that I loved it a bit it’s still a bit of a guilty pleasure for me because I NEVER like books like that but for some reason that one was just so addictive!


4.) The house with the best decorations on the block: Best haunting/Halloween themed cover

Image result for labyrinth lost

It’s a perfect combination of witches and Halloween colors so I think it fits very well!


5.) The house that gives out the best candy: #1 Halloween recommendation

Image result for slasher girls and monster boys

Slasher Girls & Monster Boys is a great read for Halloween and since it’s an anthology of short horror stories there should be a couple stories in there for everyone, though I thought pretty much all of them were fantastic.


Speed Round:

1.) Corn Maze or Haunted House?

Haunted House! (I think they’re scarier and just more fun)

2.) Classic or Unique Costume?

Definitely unique since that’s what I try and do for all of my costumes every year!

3.) Sexy or Scary Costume?

Sexy.

4.) Comedy or Horror Halloween Film?

Definitely Horror!

5.) Chocolate or Sour Candy?

Both? I supposed Chocolate wins out though….
