Pretty embarrassed by the lack of graphic novels/comics in the last few year, guys. But here are six favorite graphic novels, and six on my TBR. Six Favorite Graphic Novels: 1. Blankets by Craig Thompson – my all-time favorite. It just spoke to me. And it was the first present I ever gave to my husband. 2. Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane, Vo1 1-4 by Sean McKeever and Takeshi Miyzawa – This is my favorite “real comic” series ever. Don’t be fooled by the cute title – this is a really amazing, addictive, realistic take on teen Mary Jane and what […]
I am terribly, terribly late getting this post up (haha, it’s August 11th!), but this year I am participating in Read. Sleep. Repeat’s ARC August, which means I’m going to blast through my old and upcoming advanced readers’ copies and try to make a dent in my to-be-read list. Here are the books I’m planning to read (or have read) for ARC August 2016 – which means you’ll see reviews of these in the next month or so. Click on the book covers to find out more about these – most of them are coming out in August or September […]
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is posted on Instagram, and it’s my Fall 2015 to be read list. It’s actually a crapload longer than this, but these are the highlights, in no particularly order. 1. When We Collided by Emery Lord (pub date: April 5, 2016): I got this ARC a few weeks ago from Bloomsbury (thank you!), and it’s absolutely at the top of Mount TBR because EMERY. 2. Tonight the Streets Are Ours by Leila Sales (pub date: Sept 15, 2015): my most anticipated fall read about one crazy night and bloggers. I’m holding back on reading this for […]
Because I am feeling super unbelievably lazy, today’s #TopTenTuesday is brought to you by Instagram. What hyped books have you not read yet? Don’t hate me for mine!
Hey guys, I’ve been a terrible blogger the last few days, but I’m back with a fun little meme that’s been going around the bookish circles: The TBR Tag! Thanks to Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner for nominating me! I’m a bit late to this, but scroll down to find out way too much about me and my To-Be-Reads! How do you keep track of your TBR pile? Is your TBR mostly print or ebook? I mostly use my Goodreads To-Read shelf, and I have shelves for books that are coming out each month. I have a Google calendar that I […]
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish to highlight a top ten list related to book blogging, and to get to know fellow book bloggers. Quick and dirty TTT today, guys – I’m super busy with work and haven’t been sleeping or doing anything else much lately. My embarrassing overarching excuse for not having gotten to to these earlier is that I got way too excited requesting ARCs in my first year as a blogger that I’ve gotten a bit bogged down. Rookie mistake. I’m really hoping to change that as this blog […]
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish to highlight a top ten list related to book blogging, and to get to know fellow book bloggers. So this post focuses on spring reads, but I thought I’d extend that to summer, too, especially since I’m going to be slowing down the blog a little as my wedding starts getting closer. I’m cheating a bit, because I have ARCs for some of these, so I really do have to read them. Here are my definite reads this spring: 1. The Elite by Kiera Cass – […]
It’s been awhile since my last Stacking the Shelves, huh? If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll notice that I just got a new Kobo Mini eReader, thanks to their Black Friday sale, and I am LOVING it. I also amassed a ton of books since the Ontario Book Bloggers’ Meet-Up earlier in the month, and I’ve been going a bit nuts on NetGalley. Here’s what I got: Bought or acquired myself: From Amazon.ca (thanks to my wonderful future sis/bro-in-law): A Wrinkle in Time Graphic Novel by Hope Larson and Madeleine L’Engle – So glad to finally have this in my […]
