Top Ten Books I’m Thankful For

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where we list our top tens!


I just got back in town from my mini-camping trip at the Texas Renaissance Festival. It was soooo much fun! I’ll definitely be dedicating a whole post just to pictures from it in the very near future to be honest, buuuut….

This Thursday is the US’s Thanksgiving so I figured I better jump on this Top Ten Tuesday topic while I still can!

Let’s reflect on all the books that have opened my mind, heart, and imagination!

Last month was asdfghjkl… a roller coaster of emotions to say the least.

Reading productivity spiked, but blogging took a turn for the worse! I still need to catch up on my Reader. Sigh, I suck – I know!

But if you’re curious about what books I read last month and some stuff going on IRL, do read on!

Halloween Book Tag

Sooo hopefully you didn’t notice, but I went semi-AWOL last week.

Excuse my French, but work has just been god-fucking-awful lately and my mental/emotional energy has just been totally spent.

BUT, personal probz aside – I thought I would come back today with a simple book tag that was both holiday-appropriate and easy to do.

Also, today is Peter Kitty’s birthday! He is 5 years old.


Anywaaaaay, let’s get started!
