Top Ten Tuesday: Side Characters I’d Love to be Besties With

Happy Tuesday!! This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic asks us to share ten characters we'd love to be best friends with. I've decided to choose only side characters for my list because I don't think side characters get enough love. There are some fantastic side characters out there!   What do you think of the characters… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Side Characters I’d Love to be Besties With

Top Ten Tuesday: Why oh why did they change these covers?

Happy Tuesday!! This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) involves changing cover designs. Cover designs can be pretty controversial among bookworms, especially when they start changing up formats mid-series (how dare they?). Personally, I've never been one to really care about changes in cover designs; however, there have been a few that… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Why oh why did they change these covers?

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I Relate With

Happy Tuesday!! This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) is a character freebie, which means we can choose any theme we wish as long as it involves characters. I thought it would be fun to list some characters that I relate with for various reasons. Some of these might be obvious… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I Relate With

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books I’ve (Shamelessly & Proudly) Written In

Happy Tuesday! This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) asks us to share our unpopular bookish opinions. However, I thought I would hone in on one unpopular bookish opinion and share ten examples of it instead. Perhaps one of my most controversial book habits is that I often annotate and… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books I’ve (Shamelessly & Proudly) Written In

Top Ten Tuesday: Dynamic Duos You Didn’t See Coming

Happy Tuesday!! This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic asks us to mash books together. In the same vein as my Classic Couple feature, I'm going to incorporate a classic and more contemporary book in each pair I make. Let's see how weird this gets, shall we? What do you think of the combos I've created?… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Dynamic Duos You Didn’t See Coming

A Classic Couple: The Song of the Lark and Paper Towns

It seems fitting that books by two of my favorite authors—Willa Cather and John Green—would connect across different centuries. As mentioned in a past Top Ten Tuesday post about pairs of classic and contemporary novels, I’ve found many interesting parallels between Cather’s The Song of the Lark (1915) and Green’s Paper Towns (2008). Thea and… Continue reading A Classic Couple: The Song of the Lark and Paper Towns

Top Ten Tuesday: High School Grads

 As my high school career nears its end (I'll be graduating this June!) it's starting to really hit me that I have less than two months of my senior year left before it's over. I've read about the senior year experiences of many characters in books over the years, yet I don't think I couldn't… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: High School Grads

Top Ten Tuesday: Where are they now?

Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week the topic is a really fun one: Top Ten Characters You'd Like to Check In With. These are characters that you'd like to have a conversation with long after the book ended to see where they are now and what they have… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Where are they now?

Rambles

on margo roth spiegelman.

Since today is International Women's Day, I thought I would take the time to discuss one of my favorite female characters: Margo Roth Spiegelman from John Green's novel Paper Towns. If you've read the book, you might be a bit confused. Margo is not a very friendly, compassionate, or lovable person, and the decision she makes… Continue reading on margo roth spiegelman.
