Top Ten Tuesday – From Page to Screen

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a FREEBIE and I’ve decided to go with books made into movies.

I don’t typically watch books adapted into movies, however there are a few that catch my attention. Here are a few Pages-to-Screen that have caught my eye. Some movies I’ve seen prior to having read the book, which in my world is a no no. Continue reading

Classics Club Spin #17

Alright, here we go! I decided to participate in The Classics Club Spin #17. I thought I was participating overall, but couldn’t find my list of 50 classic books. I mean, not that it really matters because I probably would still have 50 books on my list.

Anyway, how does the Spin work? It’s as easy as 1-2-3. Really. You choose 20 books from your Classics list that you have yet to read before March 9th, post said 20 books to your blog and wait for the morning of March 9th when a number between 1 & 20 will be posted. Then you read the book with the corresponding number by April 30th. What!? How simple could that be? Continue reading

January/February Wrap Up & March TBR

Happy end of February. I hope you all are having a great start to the year.

For me this year is all about knocking books off that ever-growing TBR pile. In theory. It does, however appear that I’m not doing a very good job.

Books Read

I didn’t come out of the gate fast nor did I finish the months of January & February where I wanted to be. As of this writing I’m 2 books behind in my Goodreads challenge, which I’m okay with. Not panicking yet, but I’ve also decided that I plan to do quality Continue reading

Discussion: What Book Made Me a Reader?

I’m not exactly sure where I saw this question, but I’ve been thinking about it for a few weeks now. And if truth be told I didn’t have to dig deep for the answer.

I could have chosen good ole Dr. Seuss, but he didn’t really make me a reader. He did spark my interest in reading. I could site Clifford the Big Red Dog or The Berenstain Bears or Curious George or any number of books I devoured, but none of them made me a reader. The book that me me a reader without a shadow of a doubt was Judy Blume’s Iggie’s House.

Summary:

Iggie’s house just wasn’t the same. Iggie was gone, moved to Tokyo. And there was Winnie, cracking her gum on Grove Street, where she’d always lived, with no more best friend and two weeks left of summer. Continue reading

On the 9th Day of Christmas – Reader Problems Book Tag

I can’t believe it! Christmas is only 5 days away. Christmas shopping is done, but I’m still not ready for it.

Anyway, continuing on with my 12 Days of Christmas posts. Today is day 9 and although I stopped believing in Santa a long long long time ago, I still hold out hope that there is some fat man flying around on a sleigh dropping off gifts. 🎅🏻🛷🦌🎁 Because yeah I really need #1 of this book tag post to happen.

I’m not sure where this book tag originated, but I think it’s here. It’s called Reader Problems Book Tag and here are my answers. Continue reading
