Can’t Wait Wednesday | Portrait of a Thief – Grace D. Li

We wanted to do another bookish meme on Wednesday and after doing Can’t Wait Wednesday a few times we decided that would be a fun one to bring around more often! About twice a month you’ll see this meme on our blog.

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Continue reading “Can’t Wait Wednesday | Portrait of a Thief – Grace D. Li”

TTT #219 | Books I Meant to Read in 2021 But Didn’t Get To Part 1

We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is most recent additions to my book collection. Seeing how we just did a bookhaul this topic doesn’t seem necessary. So I decided to take a go at next week’s topic: Books I Meant to Read in 2021 But Didn’t Get To. There were more than 10 releases I didn’t get to, but here are ones that are getting priority in 2022.

Show Sunday | Favorite 2021 TV Shows Part 1

This week was all about our favorite books of 2021. But we also watch a ton of tv shows so of course we had to include a list with our favorite tv shows as well. Today it’s time for my list and next week will be Candyce’s turn. I will only talk about tv shows that had a season in 2021, so no older shows I got caught up on. It was pretty hard to narrow it down as I watched a ton of great shows! I’m going with a top 15 in no particular order and will do honorable mentions as well (and those will be another 15 shows, oops haha). Let’s take a look!
