[Top Ten Tuesday] Characters I'd Invite To Thanksgiving Dinner





Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish but is currently being run by That Artsy Reader Girl. A prompt is given each week, and I hope to do it every week so I always have something going up on Tuesdays. This week I am talking about some of the characters I'd invite to Thanksgiving dinner! This was such a fun prompt and I really enjoyed thinking of all the characters I love so much. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US who celebrates! And to everyone else, I hope you're having a good start to Christmas!

Let's dive into my answers!

[Book Review] Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo






Darkness never dies.

Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land. She finds starting new is not easy while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. She can’t outrun her past or her destiny for long.

The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her--or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.

[Top Ten Tuesday] Bookish Items & Merchandise I'd Love To Own





Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish but is currently being run by That Artsy Reader Girl. A prompt is given each week, and I hope to do it every week so I always have something going up on Tuesdays. This week I am talking about the bookish items and merchandise I've had my eyes on for so long and would love to own! I am not great at buying bookish merch because I end up feeling shoppers guilt almost instantly, but if I could convince myself to buy some merch these would be the ones I'd get!

I decided to go through my Etsy wishlist and realized I had SO MANY bookish merch I wanted, so I narrowed it down to ten items from seven different shops on the website. I love Etsy and often buy from Etsy, especially lately for my wedding. So I am excited to talk about some of my favorite shops! 

So let's jump right into it!

[Book Review] Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas






The queen has returned.

Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she’s at last returned to the empire—for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past…

She has embraced her identity as Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen. But before she can reclaim her throne, she must fight.

She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die for her. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen’s triumphant return.

The fourth volume in the New York Times bestselling series continues Celaena’s epic journey and builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world.

[Top Ten Tuesday] Backlist Books I Want to Read



Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish but is currently being run by That Artsy Reader Girl. A prompt is given each week, and I hope to do it every week so I always have something going up on Tuesdays. This week I am talking about some of the books I've had backlisted for so long and still haven't read them. Blacklist books are books that came out at least over like a year ago or more and you still haven't gotten around to reading it. For me it's a lot of books I bought on my kindle or are on my shelves and I've just taken an embarrassingly long time to finally pick them up. If you have read any of these and think that any should be on the top of my TBR then tell me!

So let's jump right into it!
