Fall is just around the corner…and there are exciting highly anticipated new releases that will make you excited for the cooling weather! And this month is perfect to make use of your library card (or sign up for a new one) because of National Libray Card Sign-Up Month. From highly sought out sequel to an upcoming romance from a popular author, September will be one busy month from book lovers:
‘You’ve read the books?”
“I’ve seen the movies.”
Cath rolled her eyes so hard, it hurt. (Actually.) (Maybe because she was still on the edge of tears. On the edge, period.) “So you haven’t read the books.”
“I’m not really a book person.”
“That might be the most idiotic thing you’ve ever said to me”

As an introvert, I know sometimes I feel like I am the only one in the world who likes to spend time alone or who is just naturally observant about the world around them. Well, we are not alone. Introverts are more prominent more than ever. In fact, they are even depicted in one of our favorite pastimes. So here are some great characters who I believe any introverted reader will feel connected to: Continue reading “Ten Introverts in Literature”
Congratulations! We have just arrived into Banned Books Week, an ALA (American Libraries Associations) that celebrates not only what we do best, read, but also the freedom to seek out and absorb knowledge, no matter how controversial and unorthodox it would appear.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish. Today’s post is:
Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read”
I continuously get disappointed when I read a hyped book so I think that is why I am so reluctant to read them. Anyway, here is my top ten:
1. Game of Thrones Series George R. R. Martin – Even though I hear about the book series and the TV series all the time, I feel like I’m the only person who has never read it. However, like I mentioned this in another TTT post, since it’s not my cup of tea, I’ll never read it.
2. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard – I see a lot of people reviewing and talking about it on the blogosphere and it does seem like an interesting read so maybe one day I’ll give it a go.
3. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green – Again, feel like I’m the only person in the world who hasn’t read. And it does appear to be something that I would like. Maybe because it is a young adult book and I’m so hesitant to read it.
