Down the TBR Hole: They just keep coming!

Down the TBR Hole

Can you believe this is the eighth week I’ve done this already??? That’s insane! I mean, it’s… Kind of working… XD You can check out last week’s Down the TBR Hole here!

Down the TBR Hole is a (very) bookish meme, originally created by Lia @ Lost In A Story. She has since combed through all of her TBR (very impressive) and diminished it by quite a bit, but the meme is still open to others! How to participate:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf
  • Order by Ascending Date Added
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or let it go?

Down the TBR Hole: I’m Terrible At This!

Down the TBR Hole (2)

This meme is totally awesome…. But I just added a bunch of 2018 releases to my TBR. Wrong direction much? Anyhoo, let’s get this party started! After last week’s Down the TBR Hole, I created a category for DTTH, so if you’re ever interested, you can look through all my past weeks of it! Anyhoo, here’s how this thing works!

I absolutely love this awesome bookish meme!

six-degrees-of-separation

The Six Degrees of Separation meme was inspired by Hungarian writer and poet Frigyes Karinthy. In his 1929 short story, Chains, Karinthy coined the phrase ‘six degrees of separation’. The phrase was popularised by a 1990 play written by John Guare, which was later made into a film starring Stockard Channing. Since then, the idea that everyone in the world is separated from everyone else by just six links has been explored in many ways, from ‘six degress of Kevin Bacon‘ to the science of connections. And now it’s a meme for readers. On the first Saturday of every month, a book is chosen as a starting point and linked to six other books to form a chain. Readers and bloggers are invited to join in by creating their own ‘chain’ leading from the selected book.

I found this meme rather recently, and was immediately captured. It’s such a fun idea, and I totally love the process. Basically, you start off with the chosen book for that month, and connect a book to it in some way, no matter how obvious or obscure that connection may be. Then you connect another book to that book, and so on and so forth, until you’ve gotten to six other books: seven total. The beginner for this month is The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo! So without further ado, let’s get started, shall we? Continue reading

I’m starting to feel like this is a monthly meme…

Shoutout Sunday off.

Hey guys, it’s Amy! I don’t seem to be very good at keeping up with these, now do I? Ah, well, let’s give it a try anyways, shall we? Continue reading

SHARING THE LOVE. JUST TOSSING IT OUT LIKE CANDY.

Shoutout Sunday off.

Hey guys, it’s Amy! I know I haven’t done a Shout-Out Sunday in a while (my last one was at the beginning of August, yikes!), but since then, I’ve just kept collecting posts and things to share. NOT A GOOD COMBO. Let’s get started, shall we? Continue reading

Welcome to the beginning of all things August!

Hey guys. it’s Amy! YES, I know it says August. And YES, I know it’s September. I mean wrap-ups! Hopefully (if all goes well) we’ll have a read-a-thon wrap-up, book haul, and general wrap-up coming up pretty soon. 🙂 I have SO MANY POSTS rattling around my head…. And yet, I have four windows full of tabs. FOUR. GUYS. THIS IS THE FIFTH ONE. I HAD TO MAKE A NEW WINDOW SO I COULD CONCENTRATE ON A POST. THIS IS BAD. VERY BAD. LAST TIME THIS HAPPENED, MY LAPTOP TOTALLY BROKE AND MY FRIEND HAD TO DELETE ALL THE TABS. ACK. ANYWAY, IT SEEMS TO BE FINE FOR NOW, BUT….

I FOUND A NEW MEME AND IT IS SO AMAZING!!!

librarycheckoutbig

As many of you will know (especially if you’ve been around for a while), I LOVE my library. The majority of the books that I read come from the library, and I can’t imagine what I would do without it. (Go get a library card, that’s what, because I seriously cannot afford 150+ books each year!) So when I stumbled on this meme, hosted by Shannon @ River City Reading, I totally had to join in. I mean, how could I not? IT’S A MEME. ALL ABOUT MY LIBRARY CHECKOUTS. THIS IS LIKE GETTING A PET DRAGON FOR CHRISTMAS A LITERAL DREAM COME TRUE. Continue reading
