I think a lot of us have a list of classic novels that we plan on reading… at some point. I’ve been telling myself I’m going to to make more of an effort to read more classics and then I never actually do. So, today is the day for me to go over some of the classics on my TBR and ask myself: ‘Am I really going to read this?’
And after a lazy search through my TBR, here are some of the classics that I’ve finally come to realise that I just won’t read:
Have you ever been working on a book tag where one of the questions is ‘Who is your book boyfriend?’ I’ve just completed a tag that asked a similar question and it got me thinking about the most popular book boyfriends. And so I took to Goodreads to find out. I remembered seeing a popular list on there years ago and I found the one I was thinking of. And it’s a bit depressing to read, and it’s really outdated (I mean it was made over seven years ago so idk what I expected.)
I’m going to explore this list, and share my thoughts on the book boyfriends I’m familiar with. The cut off will be 20 books because this is a HUGE list (it has over 8,300 entries!). If you’re curious, here’s a link to the list.
I’ve written a few posts lately that have required me to reflect on all the books I’ve read and rated online, and there’s a topic I want to talk to you all about related to this because it irritates me every time I think about it. And that topic is about old book ratings, and whether you’d consider updating your book ratings and reviews or not.
I feel awful when I publish a post and people take the time to comment and then I don’t respond for a few days. I fear it makes me look unappreciative of receiving comments. Of course, I do respond eventually, but I really need the time away from my blog after a new post goes up and I just wanted to write about why that is.
It’s always such a shame when a book or a series ends and you’re left feeling really underwhelmed by it. In my experience, an unsatisfactory ending can ruin the book for me. Endings that make no sense, characters go OOC or don’t get the ending they deserve, a ship you hate ends up together… Whatever reason, I think a disappointing ending to a book has the ability to ruin the whole book for you.
Looking through all the YA books I’ve read in the past, I noticed a few reads whose endings still have me feeling a little sad. And on that note, here are some of my YA reads that left me wishing for a different outcome:
Also, this post shows just how little YA I read nowadays (and how much I read in 2012/2013), and I’m sorry!
I swear I blinked and February was over… I hate when the month’s suddenly over and you feel like you’ve achieved nothing for that month. Anyways, this is my wrap-up post for February. I imagine it’s gonna be a short one…
I love a good sports romance (even though I’m not very sporty…), but I have to admit that the majority of sports romance novels I’ve read have had the hero as the sports player. But now I’m aiming to read more romances where the heroine plays sports, and so here is a quick list of romances currently on my TBR that have that!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Didn’t plan on posting this today but it fits nicely so why not?
It was sometime last year when I stumbled across #romanceclass novels via Twitter. According to their website, #romanceclass is a community of:
Authors who attended #romanceclass, #romanceclass2016, the steamy reads, YA classes organized by Mina V. Esguerra
Readers of the books by those authors
Readers of English-language romance books by Filipino authors
I haven’t read many romanceclass novels, but the few I have read have been pretty great. And after scanning through my Goodreads shelves, I realised that I have a lot of romanceclass novels on my TBR. So I felt like writing about them. Here’s my wishlist!:
Does anyone else spend hours creating and sorting through their Goodreads shelves? I like to clean my shelves and make new ones every so often, and most recently, I took a particular focus on my New Adult shelf. I have this weird thing I do where I add novels (mostly romance novels) to this shelf when they aren’t even NA and its very annoying. So, after sorting through my NA shelf and correcting my mistakes, I’ve decided to write a post on five NA books and/or series that I’ve heard a ton of good things about, but just haven’t got around to reading yet.
Who else has a DNF shelf on Goodreads?? I don’t really know why I have it because it serves no purpose whatsoever to me, but I see them all the time on GR and so I made one. So now I’m going to reveal each of the 11 books on my DNF shelf and explain why I quit it.
