Exploring My Bookshelves @ Addlepates and Book Nerds. Take a “shelfie” (a picture of your bookshelf) and then use one of the books on your shelves to answer the weekly prompt. Here’s one of my many shelves– this one is a small one, though. You can see I prefer paperbacks to hardbacks. Hardbacks make me read slower, I think because I can’t bend the book like I want it. They’re also heavy and I’m constantly scared… Read More

Book Traveling Thursdays @ The Girl Who Read too Much. Picking a book related to the weekly theme that is announced in the group Goodreads page (if you want to join click here) at the beginning of each month. After that you can write a blog post where you explain why you choose that book and choose different covers from different countries. To make it a little bit easy you are going to choose different editions of the… Read More

Waiting on Wednesday @ Breaking the Spine. Show off upcoming releases that you’re eagerly anticipating. It’s near New Years, which means it’s time for my annual reread of all Cassie Clare series!!!  (… okay… I’m a little crazy) While rereading the brilliant series, I am dying for the next instalment: Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices #2) by Cassandra Clare I NEED TO KNOW HOW MY OTP ARE GOING. I know what you’re thinking, “But… Read More

Mailbox Monday is hosted weekly at Mailbox Monday. Link to your post about the books you recently received. GOOD EVENING, READERS! HAPPY BOXING DAY! My friend in NYC is making me go to the Boxing Day sales– save me. I’ll probably run off to the Strand or any other book store close by. Yesterday was Christmas, which isn’t really a mailbox occasion, however a certain stocking requested to be filled with books. I’m writing… Read More

The Friday 56 (with Instagram 56) @ Freda’s Voice. Grab a book, any book, and turn to page 56. Find a sentence that grabs you and post it either on your blog or on Instagram tagged with #Friday56. I actually hate this book meme, it requires too much of my time ugh. This week’s Friday 56 book is Matched by Ally Condie (wow I haven’t read this book in years).  “We aren’t allowed to go… Read More

What’s Next @ Icey Books. Select 3-5 books that you want to read but can’t decide which one to read first. At the end of your post, ask readers to vote on which one you should read next. I’m unsure if anybody will actually comment, but I’ll try anyways. READERS, I NEED YOUR OPINION: Should I next read: a) Almost to Die For (A Vampire Princess of St. Paul, #1)  b) Switched (Trylle Trilogy #1)… Read More

Library Loot @ The Captive Reader and  Silly Little Mischief. Share the books etc that you got from the library each week. Happy Mid-December!I’m writing this in advance, so if I’m correct, around this time I’d be well into my NYC trip. Which also means I have no books nor my local library near by. However, that’d mean NYC’s finest libraries were a helluva lot closer. I’ve booked a tour to one that’s a part of a NY… Read More

Writing prompts (posted in advance) for “10 Books That …” November 29: Holiday Gift Guide freebie (ten books to buy the YA lover in your life, 10 books to buy for your dad, etc.)  TOP X YA SERIES TO INTRODUCE TO YOUR RELUCTANT-READING FRIENDS 5: The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1) by Suzanne CollinsIt’s just one of those series that all teens know nowadays. They… Read More

Bookmark Monday @ Guiltless Reading. If you have a bookmark to share leave a comment on the Monday post. In my previous post, I said I use just about anything as a bookmark. I also said I have a million of Book Depository’s lying around my bookshelves. This is my all-time favourite bookmark from Book Depository: I’ve been lucky enough to snag 2 of these, and oddly enough they came with my favourite books from… Read More
