Thank you… I hadn’t thought about which one was my favorite after time had past. My first instinct is the Wicked King, of course… as far as adult book goes… Heartbreaker was a kick! LOL
They really are… especially because most of the book blogging world does them. I didn’t do it last week because of Gerard Way’s bday and the announcement of Umbrella Academy getting a second season but 95% of the time I join in!
What originally made you decide to start writing book reviews?
Thank you for asking 🙂 At the time I was still working in education full time and wanted to talk to those who were reading YA (mostly, I do review adult books here and there although I think that whole division is becoming a complete mess but that is another story lol) as readers, because they enjoyed reading and not just for the sake of teaching the books etc.. Somewhere to discuss books as readers and not educators. I will admit the educator in me does come out sometimes because that is in engrained in me but it never over takes the joy of reading or discussing books through that lens. It is sad to me that the biggest complaint teachers have against making curricula more relevant to their students is that they don’t know books or want to read what is coming out. If they don’t love reading, how will they instill it in their students?
I haven’t read any of these. I’ll have to check them out. I’m sure my tbr will be getting even longer! Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.
I am the great enabler!
