Okay guys, *look of horror* I know it’s Thursday and I’m doing Top Ten Tuesday! The world is off-balance! I’m gonna DIEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, maybe not die, just reenact FREAKY FRIDAY BY TURNING INTO NIKKI AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *hyperventilates* Okay, I’m creeping myself out. No, don’t throw eggs at me! That would be unthinkable! (I’m not up to speed with the latest shadow hunter pjs!) Kidding! Maybe you can all just boo me? I’m fairly sure you don’t do that to Nikki, you’re all too busy egging her…. Alright. *composes self* Anyway, since it’s Thursday, I’m just going to throw my WAYRW in here as well. It’ll be like a Nikki post! Oh gosh, the shame! Okay, to prove I’m not turning into Nikki, I’m going to tell you that I had a reason for missing my TTT post. Yup, my iPod was dead all day Tuesday and my tab charger has been lost for a week, so…. Yeah. I was really busy yesterday too…. Now, down to business. Groan all you want, but I refuse to turn into Nikki! The world simply cannot handle two of her.
In case you’ve been living in a hole for your entire blogging experience, Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is…
Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession (bought, library, review copies)
Woohoo!!! This is so EASY! I literally just went to the library yesterday. And the day before that. No, I do not joke with you here! But since I started this post yesterday (yes, I am that much more guilty), I’m not including the group from yesterday. 😀 Since I’m feeling kind (very) a.k.a. Guilty (very) with a capital G, the covers will be linked to their Goodreads pages this week. I’ve always wanted to link pictures….
The first group are from my library visit Tuesday.
The Second Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares – I actually just finished this one! I’ve never read this series, so I picked up the first one a week or so ago and liked it. Of course, I had to get more of the series ASAP. 🙂
Beyond the Kingdoms by Chris Colfer –
Okay, so this is a kids book. But I still read a lot of juvenile fiction when I started this series. However, then I started it for the concept; now I’m reading it because, hello! Chris Colfer aka Kurt from Glee? Yup! Still obsessed with Glee. (Just finished this one a few minutes ago)
The Book Without Words by Avi –
Another children’s book. Let me tell you about my library program. Yes, I promise this is relevant. Our library this year is doing one program for YA and Adult. They gave out a list of authors to read from. When you finish a book by an author on the list, you can fill out a slip and stick it in a box, which they draw from every week or something. Well, that was all good until I got home and started looking up these authors. Guess what??? Half the authors only ever wrote picture books. A quarter wrote children’s. The other quarter wrote YA and children’s. I mean, seriously people? There were seriously like five adults books for my my mom to choose from. Avi was on the list, and I’ve only read one book by him, so I gave it a shot. Hence this book.
The Wright 3 by Blue Balliett –
The library program. ‘Nuff said.
Dragon’s Blood by Jane Yolen –
Girls In Pants: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares –
At a split-second decision, I got both books two and three. Doesn’t hurt, right?
The last four are from my library excursion a week or so ago.
Oh my gosh. I’m in shock, I swear! (I don’t swear) I went to look up the next book, and Goodreads won’t search! Sorry, no more links, just the PURTY PICTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Inner 3-year-old, I got tired of being mature. Don’t we all?)
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo –
I’d been hearing about this book for AGES, so I went and got myself a copy. I actually just recently finished it. If you haven’t read it, DO! It was really good.
Mosquitoland by David Arnold –
I actually have no idea what this is about. Or why I got it. My best guess- Nikki?
Frosting and Friendship by Lisa Schroeder –
Ka-Pow! Dat’s rite, kids boock. Uck, that spelling is killing me already. Library program. Yes? Yes.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins –
Never read the series, and everyone always says I should! I’m trying, I really am. But it’s just… so… hard… to open….
For the amount of time I spent on it, this post is ironically short…. Oh well. I’m so sorry I’ve been AWOL (Not exactly sure what that means, so if I said something bad, it wasn’t intentional. Isn’t it, like, disappearing from a video game or something???), and Nikki’s writing an apology post too. And now she’ll chew me out for ratting her out. Oh, the beautiful circle of life. ON TO THE WAYRW!!!
In case you haven’t heard of it, What Are You Reading Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Its A Reading Thing. Simply answer these three easy questions:
1. What’s the name of your current read?
2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your ebook and share one complete sentence.
3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?
1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins –
Oh yeah! Yes, you heard right. I’m finally reading this series!!!!!!!
2. “I cannot afford to get upset, to leave this room with puffy eyes and a red nose.” Page 33 would have been a MUCH better teaser. By far.
3. No. Absolutely not. I would be eligible for the reaping and…. *shudder* Without a doubt, never.
Well, I’m off to see a play, so I really must be going. But I did promise to have two TTT pics in this post last week!
Gotta run, but feel free to comment about my reading choices down below or just tell me how awesome I am! (Just kidding. Somewhat.) Have a great day, and happy reading to you all! 🙂 👋🏻
