Thursday Quotables (the sixth)

OOOPH! Hello! The ‘ooph’ is there because I’ve just landed. For several days I was floating in a cloud of blissful ignorance, and dropping back to reality was a bit of a shock. I completely forgot that I had not yet written my introduction post to the Fanboy Book Club-I’ve been a terrible member so far. (Sorry Bianca!) Also, there are 12 books I read from the last couple of months that I’d like to review, but that number alone overwhelms me! I was going to do a bunch of mini reviews…and I obviously haven’t yet. Mini reviews may prove to be a challenge-if you’ve read my reviews, you know I kind of go all in and they can end up quite long. Challenges are good though!

Thursday Quotables (the third)

Thursday Quotables is a weekly feature by Lisa at Bookshelf Fantasies. (Rules of participation are located on her blog, if you’d like to do your own Thursday Quotables post.) Basically, this feature is for any line or passage you read during the week that you really liked.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Plus, once I started drafting my 2015 post, I realized that it was going to end up quite lengthy. So I’m just going to finish my resolutions, get a couple hours of sleep, and then complete my (overdue) recap. Without further ado, I present my top 10 bookish & bloggish resolutions for 2016.

Thursday Quotables (the first)


Perusing my WordPress reader this morning, I came across a post from Victoria at Addlepates and Book Nerds titled Thursday Quotables. This concept is perfect for me! I usually have an awesome quote from something I’m currently reading, but I hardly ever remember to write it down before the book needs to be returned to the library. Blogging about it weekly should help me to keep track of my favorite quotes. I’m going to bend the rules a bit and do four quotes, because Stargirl has so many beautiful lines.
