The 2nd Annual Book Blogger Awards: I love everyone

HI so this is going to be the least cute post on Earth. I have an 8-10 page paper due tomorrow (not yet done) + a final (really need to study) + am moving out of my apartment + have class in an hour + OH GOD I’M FREAKING OUT WHAT HAVE I DONE.

Anyway anyway anyway I just realized today is the last day to put in nominations for the 2nd Annual Book Blogger Awards (hosted by the amazing Joce; her post here) and while I hate myself for putting it off I love everyone on here waaaaaay too much to not give them a lil recognition.

So away we go!!! Continue reading

Books I am so scared to read. Ahh! (That’s me being scared)

I read a lot of YA. More specifically, I read a lot of popular YA. Most specifically of all, my TBR at any given time looks like I took a list of every mainstream author + every anticipated release + every book that is inescapable in anyone’s Goodreads feed, threw it on the ol’ to-read list, and hoped for the best.

This has a lot of fun effects. Lots of people to talk to about the book! Lots of reviews from trusted sources to read! Lots of fun when I inevitably hate it!

Scratch that last one.

Here’s every book I own and haven’t read yet because what is wrong with me

I, as many of us do, have a book-buying problem.

This is due to the fact that I want every book with a pretty cover in the entire world, and also every edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and every YA release and every classic that has ever hit a must-read-in-a-lifetime list and every memoir of every comedian I’ve ever cracked a smile at and every middle grade adventure story and every feminist collection of women in history with pretty illustrations which is a surprisingly vast subgenre.

All of that adds up pretty fast. Continue reading

March Wrap-up: The month so terrible I’m embarrassed to tell you about it

Well, guys. Sometimes life happens.

Sometimes life happens in the sense that you read a John Green book and you hate it so much it plunges you into a deep pit of existential questioning that takes up all your time. (Questions like, Who are we? Why are we here? Why the f*ck do we bother reading books when we could read a book and it could be this book, which sucks and I hate it?) Sometimes life happens in the sense that you’re busy, and your free time is taken up by non-reading related things.

Sometimes both happen at once. There’s a term for that: it’s called “the month of March in the year of 2018.”

Books I like that no one else does (even my positive opinions are unpopular)

I hate a lot of books. 2.7 average rating for 2017, 2.97 average overall rating on Goodreads, bla bla bla, you’ve heard it before. In addition to that fact, there is also the fact that I read a lot of popular YA books. Probably mostly popular YA books.

So. In conclusion, I read a lot of well-loved YA and I hate a lot of what I read. Bring those things together and you’ve got the formula for consistently unpopular opinions boi!!

But there’s another side to the unpopular opinion, and that is “Here is a book that people aren’t all that into that I loved a lot.” It is, in short, the more fun side. And here are three times that it happened to me!!!
