5 Classics for September

It's time for another monthly recommendation! (Miss my August post?) In this series, I recommend five classics each month that remind me of that particular time of the year.

Happy Tuesday!

Personally, there are few authors whose books I would automatically purchase, but there are many authors… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’ve Read by Auto-Read Authors

Top Ten Tuesday: Best Character Names {For Plants}

Happy Tuesday!! This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) is supposed to be Best Character Names; however, as per usual I've decided to put my own spin on it.
