Hello, and welcome back to my blog! It’s that time again for a monthly TBR. I’m putting this one up a little bit early because I have a very busy week ahead of me, and I wanted to make sure I didn’t forget to do this. Last month I fell short on my TBR because I fell into a reading slump, but I’m hoping to follow my TBR this time and hopefully pick up some nice books to read. Alrighty, let’s get started!

Hello fellow readers and welcome back to my blog!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This weeks meme is Top Ten Favorite Tropes, which is interesting because this is something I don’t think of very often.
I don’t tend to notice which tropes I go for, I just pick up books that look good to me, but most of them are similar so this will be a great self-analysis. Without further ado, here are my top ten favorite tropes, in no particular order!

Hello fellow readers! It has been years since I have participated in this, but I figured I would give it another go now that I am trying to be more active on this blog!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish that is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This weeks theme is Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors, which makes it a pretty easy one for me!
I actually don’t buy books as much as I would like to since I am poor, but I’m hoping that will change in the near future with my fiance’s new job! Enough stalling, here are my top ten auto-buy authors in no particular order!
Was I tagged to do this? No. Am I going to do it anyways? Absolutely! I saw this adorable little tag over at The Quirky Book Nerd and just had to get in on this action. I actually only discovered Animal Crossing this year, and between my fiance and I, it has quickly become one of our household’s favourite past times. So, without further ado, let us begin!
- Please link back to the original creator of the tag, Bookish Things and Tea.
- Answer the following Animal Crossing themed questions.
- Feel free to use Bookish Things and Tea’s graphics, but make sure to give credit for them.
- Tag some friends to spread the love!
I am in fact using the creators graphics, which are super cute! All credit for them goes to the awesome creator! Continue reading
