Bookish Characters

It’s Top Ten Tuesday time! This week the prompt is bookish characters, so I perused through my read list from the past year or so and these are the 10 books that jumped out at me that I remember with a character that is either a reader, writer, librarian, professor etc..

Velvet was the Night by Silvia Morena Garcia

The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake

Gallant by V.E. Schwab

The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix

Empire of the Vampire by Jay Kristoff

For Your Own Good by Samantha Downing

The Maidens by Alex Michaelides

The Empress of Salt and Fortune & When the Tigers Coming Down the Mountain by Nghi Vo


Beach Read by Emily Henry

Medieval-a-Thon TBR

I’ve made the last minute decision to participate in Medieval-A-Thon this month! I am going to try my best to complete at least one of the professions and become a Princess but I would love to make it to the Empress! I have chosen a Blacksmith as my profession and if I have time later in the month I will pick another profession and try to complete as many prompts from that as well.

Nobility RankingsBlacksmith

Read a book with gold, silver or bronze in the title or cover

A book you’re scared to read

A book with a weapon on the cover

A hardcover

A series finale

✨Grishaverse Reread✨

This book was the ending this series deserved. Granted there were a few things I was annoyed about but overall I was left feeling very content with the ending and how everything played out. Similar to the last book it was just a lot of preparing and plotting for this inevitable last fight with the Darkling and then once we got there it was rushed in like the last 50 pages. We are definitely given a lot of answers to questions that have been circulating for the duration of the series and the Darkling and Baghra were at the forefront of most of them. I liked the way we learnt about Baghra’s history and how Allina put two and two together but still ended up being wrong. There was some nice twists that I had forgotten about for the most part but overall the pacing was just a bit off.

Buzzword Reading Challenge

If you are unaware what the Buzzword Readathon/Challenge is see my prior post HERE. Last month the buzzword prompt was to pick a book with size related words in the title and I ended up completing All Her Little Secrets by Wanda M. Morris which was a little disappointing. For May the buzzword prompt is direction related words and I have a couple options:

Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough


The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins
