Book Blogger Challenge-Week 11

Hi everyone! Once again, it’s time for the weekly installment of The Book Blogger Challenge. This feature is hosted by Good Books & Good Wine, Stop by and link up your posts if you are participating in this feature.

Show off 5 of your best blog posts!

1. Review- OCD Love Story by Corey Ann Haydu
– I absolutely LOVED this book. The characters were great and I poured a little bit of myself into this review.

2. Review- If You Leave by Courtney Cole
-This book meant more to me than I ever thought was possible. It brought me a lot of healing and I explored those in this review.

3. Review- Always Watching by Chevy Stevens
-This book was the first unsolicited finished copy that I had received. It still remains my favorite psychological thriller of the year.

4. Friday Musing #5
-This is definitely considered an older post. It was back when I still wanted to come up with a witty name for my discussion posts. Yeah, that didn’t last long. But this post detailed bookish turn-offs. I’ve eased up on some but not all of them.

5. Review: The Program by Suzanne Young
-This book gutted me and then gutted me again. I pretty much cried through the whole thing. I live for those books with the feels though.I named this my favorite YA book of 2013.If you haven’t read it, you need to make a point of doing it soon.

So what are some of your best blog posts?

Book Blogger Challenge- Week #1

Okay so I know I am super late to the party and everything but I have had things to talk about and so this challenge got pushed to the back-burner many times. Now I have the time to devote to it. I have changed it to doing it once a week instead of once a day. Partly because I don’t like having multiple postings on the blog every day and also partly because I am lacking in Friday discussion post topics now.

This comes from Good Books and Good Wine. Over the past few months many bloggers have jumped on the same bandwagon to do this. It’s fun and interesting to get to know our fellow book bloggers this way. So let me know if you’ve done this or if you can relate to any of my confessions.

So here goes…

Week 1-Make 15 book related confessions
1. I have to be eating or drinking something while I read.
2. Up until about 2.5 years ago I had no clue what YA was or what Dystopian was.
3. My favorite place to read during the daytime is on my antique couch.
4. I use index cards as my bookmarks. These index cards have the book title, author and whether its a review book or a me book.
5. I have to write the review immediately after I finish the book. Unless it’s like 3am or something.
6. I read more than one book at a time.
7. I’m a certified speed reader. I can finish a 400 page book in a day.
8. I was reading on my own by age 4.

10. Until recently, books rarely made me cry.
11. I enjoyed the Twilight series once,but I will never read it again.
12. I tend to shy away from the books that are mostly romance. I need action in my books.
13. If a book has great characters, chances are super high that I’ll love the book.
14. Pretty covers lure me in almost immediately.
15. I love the kick-ass female characters, The weak female characters drive me bananas.
