Climbing the Misty Mountains // Wreck This Journal 8

Follow me as I adventure through my copy of Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith. Click here to see my other completed pages!The instructions on this page read: Climb up high. Drop the journal. I knew that I didn't want to actually drop the journal from any significant height, so I had to get creative. Inspiration for this page struck …

Top Ten Tuesday: 1-Day Wonders

Happy Tuesday! This week's Top Ten Tuesday theme is a FREEBIE, which means that we can make lists about whatever our bookish hearts desire. As I was scrolling through past TTT posts from The Broke and the Bookish, I stumbled upon one that was done back in 2012: Top Ten Books to Read in a Day. I've …

HAMLET by William Shakespeare

To like Hamlet or not like Hamlet, that is the question... I have a confession to make: I'm not really a big fan of Shakespeare. Ever since first reading one of his works as a freshman in high school (Romeo and Juliet, naturally) I've had mixed feelings about the Bard. To be quite honest, none of …

PERSUASION by Jane Austen

Before reading Persuasion, the only novel I had ever read by Jane Austen was Pride and Prejudice, which I adored. I actually read the two back to back, which I quickly realized was a bit of a mistake. I found there to be a distinct difference in the tones of these two novels, and I was not expecting the more …

Top Ten Tuesday: Recent Additions to My TBR List

Happy Tuesday! The New Year is underway, which means that TBR lists have likely been flooded with a plethora of additional titles. Fortunately, this week's Top Ten Tuesday topic is the Top Ten Recent Additions to My TBR List. In no particular order, they are: What books have you recently added to your TBR list? What …

ABOUT GRACE by Anthony Doerr

Anthony Doerr's All the Light We Cannot See is easily one of the best novels I have ever read. I read it during Christmastime in 2014 and absolutely gushed about my love for it in a review I wrote shortly thereafter. It's one of those books that sticks with you long after you read it, and consequently …

Top Ten Tuesday: 2015 Releases I Meant to Read But Didn’t

There are always those pesky books that, no matter how hard we try, we just never quite manage to read as quickly as we would have liked. There are so many books that I wanted to read in 2015, but there's only so much time in one year! Since this week's Top Ten Tuesday theme …

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE by Jane Austen

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a book blogger in possession of a good book, must be in want of a review. For once I’m actually writing a review mere hours after finishing a novel. Usually I get so caught up in reading the next book on my shelf that I don’t get around …

Top Ten Tuesday: 2016 Resolutions

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! It's the first Tuesday of 2016-- writing that feels so strange! Where does the time go?? As per usual at the start of the New Year, the Top Ten Tuesday topic is our Top Ten Resolutions for 2016. I feel like these could be considered more like goals than resolutions-- or is there even a difference? (Says …

My 2015 Reading Statistics

It's that time of year again when I break out the calculator and start crunching numbers-- for the sake of bookishness, of course! In 2015 I surpassed my initial Goodreads goal of 24 books by reading 56 books, which amounts to a total of 17,740 pages read. If you'd like to check out my Goodreads Year in Books …
