Top 5 Tuesday – Bookish Pet Peeves

When it comes to books, I think of myself as lenient in a sense while reading. There’s not much that will prevent me from reading BUT here are the top 5 things that do prevent me from reading a book!

Biblically Small Fonts

Lemme just say this right here and now, I HATE wearing my glasses to read. I wear bifocals which makes it very difficult for me to read while wearing them. I mean, I wear them when necessary but I’d much prefer not wearing them while reading. Which this issue actually brings me to my next bookish thing I don’t like-

Mass Market Paperbacks

I feel like this ties in with the small fonts issue but my main problem with mass market paperbacks is the spines on them. You can barely maintain a hold on them! Though there are incentives like the fact you can throw them in a purse- But these paperbacks are just too small font wise and size wise.

Copy Cat Novels

I have no idea why I call them copycat novels but what I mean is when one novel is almost identical to another novel be it by the same or different author. This, unfortunately, occurs a lot in the bookish community (ESPECIALLY YA).

Dust Jackets on Hardcovers

There’s actually almost nothing wrong with dust jackets, they’re helpful and make the hardcover pretty.  Although I just don’t enjoy having to continually take them off and put them back on while reading. It’s more or less a pet peeve of mine. A part of me just wishes that hardcovers were like paperbacks in the sense that the cover doesn’t come off but ehh I get why they don’t lol-

Flat Characters

For me personally, to get invested in a novel, I NEED the characters to have some, any sort of depth to their personalities. When the main character has no personality, I just can’t finish the novel no matter how good others say it is. I just need some form of personality development-

Well, I hope y’all enjoyed my minor rant! Tell me in the comments what your bookish pet peeves are, I’d love to hear them! Thank you for reading (sorry if this was a little too ranty for y’all)!

Top 5 Tuesday – YA World War 2 Historical Fictions

Historical Fictions, why are they so amazing one may never know. Here are some amazing historical fictions!

I’ve really been forward to this specific post! There’s a certain something I love about historical fictions! They take you back in time to a different place, something you didn’t live through. While a lot of historical fictions are sad, a lot can also be uplifting.

DISCLAIMER: All opinions are my own so I hope they don’t upset y’all!

1. “Between Shades of Grey” by Ruta Sepetys 

There’s not much I can say about this without getting emotional. This novel tore my heart to pieces, it has so many elements of love and family! The mother is my favorite character and I CANNOT recommend this novel anymore!

For more information, the review I wrote can be found here!

2. “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak

I enjoyed this novel a lot, the only thing I HATED about this novel, the beginning was exhaustingly slow but once you get past maybe the first hundred pages it’s amazing! I thought that the opening was beautifully written with why the novel has the name it has. I strongly recommend this novel!

3. “Anna and the Swallow Man” by Gavriel Savit

THE SYMBOLISM THOUGH. The symbolism in this novel was amazing. It was a quick read that I could NOT put down! Anna may know that the swallow man isn’t her father, they both still have an amazing parental connection. This novel is a read I really recommend!

4. “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas” by John Boyne

The premise of this novel was what I loved, it was sad but beautiful. The friendship between Bruno and a child on the other side of the mysterious fence. This novel shows the true travesty of World War 2 and I loved Boyne’s interpretation of this heartfelt novel!

9780385751063

5. “Code Name Verity” by Elizabeth Wein

I had absolutely no intention of putting this novel on the list yet by a turn of events, here we are! I personally didn’t love the beginning of the novel but it progresses into something intriguing. I loved the aspect of spies and friendship! While this isn’t my favorite WW2 novel, it’s still a great book to read!

Thank you for reading! Have an amazingly good day!

Starting College!

Just this past month I put high school behind me and began college. This change was a difficult one but the support from those around me has been amazing and I can’t thank and appreciate them more than I do.

I started classes on the solar eclipse so August 21st of this year! I’ve started with prerequisites but look forward into delving into classes rather similar to my major. I’m between majoring in Marine Biology or Environmental Science. My passion and hope are to be able to work with animals long term. A ton of my work has been essays so far though lol.

I have hopes to continue to post reviews during the school year and continue to help authors find their place in publishing and reader world. Thank you for continuing to read my blog and have a good day!
