Books I’d Love to Read Again (for the First Time)

You ever have those stories that are so amazing you wish you could forget them so you could experience them again for the first time? What about books that you read when you were too young and inexperienced to really get everything out of them that they could offer? Under the cut I’ve got five titles for each scenario- from books I was too young to fully appreciate to books I wish could surprise me once more.

Books I am Thankful Exist

Hello all you wonderful people! Hope things are going great for you and if you celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you’re enjoying it and your family is behaving themselves! This week’s TTT was another freebie, but I decided to keep it book related with the ten books I am most thankful exist. From nonfiction that helped me understand myself better and taught me great coping or creative mechanisms to LGBTQ+ fiction and poetry, with a strong dose of fantasy in between.

Character Names I’d Like to Name a Pet After

Hello again to all the word nerds out there, hope November has treated you well. I’m writing this in October, and I have to wonder what sort of world this will be posted to once it’s done. With any luck it’s a more hopeful one than I wrote this in, but only time will tell.

This week we’re taking a look at good literary pet names, and if you’re anything like me- you’ve been naming animals after book characters for a long time already. I’ve had Myles, named after Sir Myles of Olua from the Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce. Fiddlesticks, named for a cat of the same name from the Enchanted Forest Chronicles, and currently I have Franky, who was named that at the shelter but we kept it as that’s one of our favorite characters from the One Piece manga and anime.

Under the cut are going to be a lot of names, mostly in pairs, because I tend to want to adopt in twos (or threes) when I do!

Book Titles that Would Make Great Song Titles

The cycle is complete and once again we find ourselves back at Tuesday- this weeks topic promises to be a lot of fun, similar to when we did book titles that would make great band names.

Under the cut you’re gonna find punk rockers, smooth operators, suave assassins, reunited lovers, and songs to go with them all! Enjoy!

Non-Bookish Hobbies?!

So this week is supposed to be ten non book related things we do, which only gives me mild anxiety, thanks. If you read the blog regularly you’ll know some of them by now- video games, writing, photography, hiking, and music are all very big parts of my life. Now I just have to think of five more.

Prepare yourself for ramblings about plants, animals, Katamari, and food! Also other things! But zero goats.

They know what they did.

Let’sa go.

Halloween Reads

Happy Tuesday everyone, hope your week started off great and is looking to get even better! It’s almost Halloween, and while this year will certainly be a strange one for everyone involved, there’s one way of celebrating that won’t be affecting. Reading scary stories!

I tried to keep my titles new to the blog, so no repeats from previous TTT’s or other things. With 300+ titles on my TBR you think this wouldn’t be quiet the challenge that it was! Hahah, jokes on me! Under the cut is murder mermaids, witches galore, and maybe a house or two that wants it’s occupants dead! Yeah!

Favorite Platonic Relationships

Happy Tuesday everyone! This weeks topic was supposed to be about books that were recommended to me, but I’m fairly certain we’ve done that already, and I just don’t have enough recs to fill up another list! Upon puruesing the ol’ back-log of prompts I found this one, which sounded fun and amusing, and would give me a chance to revisit some of my favorite characters and the relationships they build.

So often when someone says “relationship” we think “romantic”, but there are multitudes of variations out there, and sometimes a great friendship can be just as satisfying to read a wonderful romance. Under the cut there are adventuring trios, space-faring duos, upright and moral witches, princesses with personality, and more!

Super Long Book Titles

TTT Header

Is it Tuesday yet again (secretly Monday night for all you early birds)? This week’s topic taught me that most books with long titles are nonfiction, so it’s a good thing I read it! We’ve got all sorts of things under the cut this week; groceries, poetry, spies, and heroes of the American Civil Rights movement, plus some other things. Gosh I’m hungry.

Book Covers with Fall Colors/Vibes

TTT Header

Happy Tuesday once again! I don’t know about where you guys live, but summer fled the Sierra Nevada’s like a guest who just realized they were never invited. Our nights are already dropping into the forties and there’s no hope of some late season river trips at this rate. A lost summer, to be sure, here’s to next years being better.

It feels like only last week I was tackling this topic- though I know it must have been longer than that. How can last fall seem so close and yet so far? This week we’ve got covers with autumn vibes; from cozy mysteries to meadows, ghosts to cats and a bunch of stuff in between! So grab your favorite drink, a blanket, and let’s cuddle up with some fall reads.

Favorite Book Quotes

TTT Header

Happy Tuesday yet again! This week’s focus is on favorite quotes from favorite books, and I managed to keep the Neil Gaiman references down to two (what can I say, the man knows his words). I love authors who occasional blindside you with beautiful and poetic prose. Give me your lush descriptions and underused adjectives, your flowery declarations of love and speeches infused with rage, I want them all.
