Spinach and Bananas: My (Unorthodox) Book Mash-up Wish List

I’m writing this post after procrastinating a long time. However, it was brewing for a while, so don’t worry. This is going to be good. Also: the title of this blog post is crucial. If you have not blended frozen bananas with a handful of spinach, along with some nondairy milk and a splash of agave, you are missing out, friend. It is the best mash-up ever. With that said, let’s discuss my top 10 book mash-up wishlist (even if a lot of them are unorthodox). **For more on Top Ten Tuesdays, check out this link.

I’ve Turned Into a Full-Time Bat and My Reading is Whack

Over the past week, my sleep schedule has taken a plunge into bat schedule land. I mean, I was always mostly nocturnal but at least I could pretend otherwise. Not anymore. Prepare for the whackiest schedule ever. Also: excuse the excess sass. I don’t mean to offend you; I am just annoyed.

Book Personality Challenge: An INFJ/INFP Identity Crisis Ensues

My incredible friend Ely posted her answers to this Book Personality Challenge a few days back. I have not been able to stop thinking about it. In particular, I am someone who gets mixed responses when I do the Myers/Briggs business. Naturally, I thought of participating in the challenge to bring in a different perspective. Plus, what’s a Wednesday morning without an identity crisis?

Gushing over Brandon Sanderson’s The Well of Ascension

While I did enjoy The Final Empire novel, Brandon Sanderson completely blew me away with the sequel, The Well of Ascension. Here, I will gush, ooh, and ah over this powerful story about morality, duty, and love.

WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD. PROCEED WITH CAUTION.

More Rule-Breaking: Booktube-a-thon TBR (Round 1, perhaps)

I am breaking rules again to guide my reading for the week. Obviously, Booktube-a-thon is a good idea. Ariel Bissette is among my favorite online peeps. Let’s see what I can come up with in terms of a TBR. Booktube-a-thon, here I come! (Also: Please, Booktube-a-thon peeps, don’t be mad at me for not waiting till it was the official time for the readathon).

Sharing My Week’s Treasure Chest

I am very much inspired by Gala Darling’s Carousel feature, where she highlights her favorite things of the week with her readers. In no way am I as cool as Gala. However, my Treasure Chest segment is a way for me to branch out and experience things that are not necessarily book-related (but still very meaningful to me).

Who Am I, Really: A Book Tag To Get to Know Me As a Reader

As I watched Marines’ video of this tag, I felt that it would be a good opportunity for us to get to know each other. The “Who Am I” book tag asks questions related to one’s reading habits.

Check out the video:

Here are my answers.

A Very Late Book Haul for July 2018

I have been having a difficult lately with life and I apologize for being scarce. A few things have come up, which led to a strange metamorphosis. It is a process so I need to take the time to follow through with what the pain is teaching me. In other words, excuse my late book haul for July 2018.

Top 10 Middle Grade Book Series I Want To Experience This Year

Not a genre I normally reach for, middle-grade books have been fantastic hits for me lately. As this week’s Top Ten Tuesday is not quite something I haven’t discussed yet on the blog, I am dedicating my post to middle-grade books. In short, my discussion is of middle-grade books I want to get to this year (or early next year).

Top 10 Book(s) (Series) I Wish I’d Read Sooner

For this week’s Top 10 Tuesday, I am twisting the prompt a bit. Rather than talking about series on my TBR that I want to finish, I am going to talk about books or series I wish I’d read sooner. Most of these books, you’ll notice, are fantasy novels. I need to read more fantasy or sci-fi, but it intimidates me a lot.
