Hey everybody! I’m home today with my little man as his usual caretakers are all sick! Means I get to skip out on work and hang out with my buddy today! So that means that I probably won’t be blog hopping today — I’ll be too busy making sure my kiddo doesn’t accidentally unalive himself, and that we’re having fun! I hope your Tuesday is going great!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is BOOKS I WAS SO EXCITED TO GET, BUT STILL HAVEN’T READ YET. Whoops. You know I got some for this topic…I went straight to my Kindle Library and scrolled, while taking notes. These are SOME of the books that I’ve bought in excitement, and uh…haven’t gotten around to reading yet.

I’m not going to lie to you, I straight up forgot I had bought some of these. (Looking at you, The Midnight Bargin.) Whoops. Do you see any books I absolutely have to get to soon? Let me know.


I don’t usually like to be negative about anything, but sometimes you just gotta go with the flow of your true feelings. I saw this book meme — Unpopular Book Opinions — on MarieReadsBooks, and I thought I’d grab it and give it a go! It was originated by TheBookArcher on YouTube. You can find the original video here.



Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s topic is A FREEBIE. Therefore, I’m choosing to do BOOKS WITH A FEMALE MAIN CHARACTER.

I love seeing female characters kick ass. I love watching them grow, and learn, and be real people, rather than figureheads to be fridged. There are some badass women on this list, and some of my absolute favorite characters in fantasy.

  • SANCIA and BERENICE, from the Founders Trilogy by Robert Jackson Bennett
  • SABRIEL and LIRAEL, from the Abhorsen Trilogy by Garth Nix
  • ORKA and ELVAR, from the Bloodsworn Saga by John Gwynne
  • GIDEON and HARROW, from the Locked Tomb series by Tamsyn Muir
  • VIN, from the Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson
  • EAD and QUEEN SABRAN, from the Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
  • DIANA, and YSABEAU, from the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness
  • ADDIE LARUE, from The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by VE Schwab
  • FEYRE, MOR, and AMREN, from ACOTAR by Sarah J. Maas
  • ALINA, GENYA, and ZOYA from the Shadow and Bone Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo

Who are your favorite female lead characters? Did I list them?
