Top Ten Books I was “Forced” to Read

I’m linking up with Top Ten Tuesday today to talk about the books I was forced to read (and loved). I always loved reading, but reading other people’s suggestions has been instrumental in broadening my horizons. It’s hard to identify which books I was “forced” into reading, because generally if someone suggests a book IContinue reading “Top Ten Books I was “Forced” to Read”

Bookish (and not so bookish) thoughts

Joining up with Christine from Bookishly Boisterous for this post – she’s been doing them for a  while now, but is starting a link-up this week. In her words, It allows book bloggers (or any blogger, for that matter) to write about pretty much anything, bookish or otherwise.

But first,Continue reading “TTT: Comparative Reading”

TTT: Book to Silver Screen

I must say that I love reading so much more than movies and series – which this week’s TTT is all about. However, since The Boy really doesn’t read all that much, I do watch a fair share of movies. It is also my way of ensuring he doesn’t COMPLETELY miss out on the magic (weContinue reading “TTT: Book to Silver Screen”
