Top Ten Tuesday: Books that Make Me Hungry

Hey guys!!! It’s time again for another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Books that Make Me Hungry. This is such a fun Top Ten Tuesday theme. I can’t say no to some good food. I always get jealous when the characters in books food sounds good and I can’t have any. I did try to pick books that I remember them mentioning food that sounded good. Unfortunately I don’t remember every book that mentions food so one or two of these might just be because they have food on the cover. So let’s dive in!

It’s time again for another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.This week’s theme is Books that Should be Adapted into Netflix Shows/Movies (submitted by Nushu @ Not A Prima Donna Girl). I haven’t done a Top Ten Tuesday in so long. I saw my lovely friend Destiny @ Howling Libraries, talking about how she hasn’t done one in so long. Then I realized since I just recently started blogging it had also been a while. I saw the topic for this week and was sold! So let’s dive in!

Comic Review: Pumpkinheads By Rainbow Rowell & Faith Erin Hicks

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Fiction, LGBT, Graphic Novel Comics, Realistic Fiction
Pages: 209 pages
Published: August 27th 2019
Publisher: First Second
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

Synopsis: Deja and Josiah are seasonal best friends.

Every autumn, all through high school, they’ve worked together at the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world. (Not many people know that the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world is in Omaha, Nebraska, but it definitely is.) They say good-bye every Halloween, and they’re reunited every September 1.

But this Halloween is different—Josiah and Deja are finally seniors, and this is their last season at the pumpkin patch. Their last shift together. Their last good-bye.

Josiah’s ready to spend the whole night feeling melancholy about it. Deja isn’t ready to let him. She’s got a plan: What if—instead of moping and the usual slinging lima beans down at the Succotash Hut—they went out with a bang? They could see all the sights! Taste all the snacks! And Josiah could finally talk to that cute girl he’s been mooning over for three years . . .

What if their last shift was an adventure?

Top Ten Tuesday: (First Ten) Books I Reviewed

Hey guys!!! It’s time again for another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is (First Ten) Books I Reviewed. So the prompt says it does not have to be formal reviews. It can be a couple sentences. It also can be from a retailer site or goodreads. So goodreads does show you the books you’ve reviewed but it doesn’t show you in the order you’ve reviewed. it. So I thought it would be fun to see what were the first 10 book reviews I posted on my blog. I think that would be a fun trip down memory lane. So let’s dive in.

Also I am sorry about this post going up so late in the day. I just purchased My Time At Portia and it’s taken over my life. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday: (First Ten) Books I Reviewed”

Destiny’s Questions

What was the first book you reviewed, and what star rating did you give it?

 

1 Eleanor & Park

So I honestly don’t remember the first book I ever reviewed. I’m sure I could go on goodreads and find that out. I decided to do the first book I ever reviewed on my blog. That is Eleanor and Park By Rainbow Rowell. You can find the review here.

Would you rather DNF a book, or give it a poor star rating?

I honestly rather DNF a book. I don’t like giving books poor ratings. It’s such a crappy feeling when I don’t like a book. I hate when it was something I was looking forward to.

Where do you primarily acquire your books from? (i.e. specific bookstore, library, Amazon, etc.)

I have to say I do usually order books from amazon. I will also go to Barnes and Nobles. I also really like walking to the library so I’ll go there as well.

Have you ever/would you ever name a pet after a bookish character?

I have never named my pet after a bookish character. I can see myself naming a pet after someone from a book though. I’m still not really sure who I’d name the pet after though.

Is there a song that makes you think of a specific book?

Gemina

When I first read this question I didn’t have an answer but the song from Gemina By Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff just popped into my head. I believe the song is from that one. It’s the oh yeah wanna lick your lollipop song.

What was the last book to make your mouth water with its food descriptions?

Destiny, I was just telling you that Anna and The French Kiss By Stephanie Perkins had me craving crepes. I was dying for one the other week. I still haven’t gotten one and now I want it again lol.

What was the last blog you followed? Give them a shout out!

I am so bad at this. I honestly don’t remember the last blog I followed. I am sorry 😦

Do you like BookTube? If so, who are your 5 favorite BookTubers?

Yes I do like BookTube. I do have a couple of favorite youtubers whose videos I try to watch when I go on.

Here they are:

  1. BooksandLala
  2. Emmmabooks
  3. Readbyzoe
  4. ChapterStackss
  5. Jadeyraereads

I think I’m going to do a post soon about my favorite youtubers. These are just a few of the people whose videos I try to watch when they upload. I do have others I really like as well. Plus I haven’t been watching as much lately.

Is there a bookish theme you refuse to read about, or a genre you won’t touch?

Um I don’t think so. I mean I’m willing to give everything a chance as long as it interests me. Sure there are some books I know I don’t want to read just cause I’m not into what they’re about.

Bookish candles: burn them or preserve them?

I currently own one bookish candle. I haven’t burned it yet. I feel I probably will once it gets colder out. I love burning candles.

What was the last book you hauled?

I ended up recently hauling The Last Time I Lied By Riley Sager and Somebody’s Daughter By David Bell. I went to their book signing event last Wednesday.


My Questions

  1. If you could meet any author who would you meet?
  2. What is the last book you regretted buying?
  3. If you had the chance to write a book with any author who would you pick?
  4. What book made a really big impact on you?
  5. Where is your favorite place to read?
  6. If you could turn any book into a movie, what book would you pick?
  7. Which bookish character do you look up to and why?
  8. If you could live the life as any character who would you pick and why?
  9. Would you ever get a bookish tattoo or do you already have one? What would you get?

You’re only allowed to read one more book and that’s it, what book do you pick?

Book Review: Eleanor & Park

1 Eleanor & Park

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Goodreads Synopsis: Two misfits.
One extraordinary love.

Eleanor… Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough…Eleanor.
Park… He knows she’ll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There’s a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises…Park.

Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.
