Top Ten Tuesday: Characters Who Make Us Laugh

This week the Top Ten is top ten characters who X (our choice). Sandie and I decided that we could use more laughter in our lives and wanted to list the characters who’ve made us laugh, even if they aren’t always funny. In almost every book, there’s always a character who provides that “comic relief” […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Things We’d Like To Own

Bookish Things

Sandie’s off on a Spring Break adventure you can follow on Instagram, so we won’t be updating much this week. But we did have time to share some of our favorite bookish things, whether we own them already or hope to someday! 1. Frodo’s Ring: Tolkien’s books opened me up to the fantasy genre and […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Things On My Bookish Bucket List

Bookish Bucket List

This week for our Top Ten Tuesday, we’re sharing “Things On My Bookish Bucket List.” 1. Attend BEA, Leaky Con, other Book Cons & Fests: It’s hard for me to get away for book conventions, and so far I’ve only been able to attend YALLFest.  I love it, so I know I will enjoy other conventions […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Spring 2014 TBR List

TBR List 2014

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday list is “Books On My Spring 2014 TBR List (To Be Read list).” There are so many books on each of our lists that one year is not enough time to read them all, let alone one season.  At any rate, we both have a myriad of books that we […]


Top Ten Tuesday: All Time Favorite Fantasy Books

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a All Time Favorite Books in the genre of your choice, so I decided we wanted to highlight fantasy books.  Although I didn’t’ always love fantasy (I didn’t like it as a child), it’s now a genre that I truly enjoy. I love that fantasy takes us to  places  […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Popular Authors I’ve Never Read

Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I Haven't Read

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is “Top Ten Popular Authors I’ve Never Read.”  So we’ve decided to make a list of the top ten YA authors we can’t believe we’ve never read. This list is just as embarrassing as last week’s list for us.  Especially since TLR is about YA, it’s hard to believe that […]


Top Ten Tuesday REWIND! Books We Can’t Believe We’ve Never Read

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a freebie Rewind. So we’ve decided to make a list of the top ten books we can’t believe we’ve never read. We made our list a combination of both YA and classics, since those are even more embarrassing to admit, and we’re all about confessing our literary shame today. […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Reasons I Love Being A Blogger & Reader

Top Ten Tuesday

This week’s top ten is, “Top Ten Reasons I Love Being A Blogger/Reader.”  We think this must be an easy one for everyone to compile. We didn’t write about the philosophical or academic reasons being a lover of literature is grand but more of the practical ways that keeping this blog and reading YA in […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Will Make You Swoon

Top Ten Tuesday Books That Make You swoon

In honor of Valentine’s Day, this week’s Top Ten is “Books That Will Make You Swoon.” Here is a list that will be hard to narrow down  because if there’s one thing YA authors know how to do is make us swoon.  I know that Sandie and I will have a hard time coming up […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Make You Cry

This week’s Top Ten is “Top Ten Books That Will Make You Cry.” This list can be a little bit tricky because what makes me cry, might not necessarily make someone else cry.  So our list is more about the books that made us cry when we read them, and we think they will probably […]
