Today I’m linking up with Cait @ Paper Fury and Sky @ Further Up and Further In for another edition of Beautiful Books to talk about what I plan to write this year for NaNoWriMo. The title right now is “Amicable” but I’m not sure if that will be staying or not. You can follow me on the NaNoWriMo site @
(note: this is not a review of Turtles All the Way Down, though I do expect to do one in the future.) Okay, honestly I have a lot going on right now and I don’t have anything for today’s TTT (I did a similar post last year), so I’m going with a 2013-style what’s-on-Emily’s-mind post. Because it’s this or nothing.
I did a post like this back in 2015, so it’ll be a short list today. My 2015 list was specifically characters that made me swoon, whereas for this one, I focused more on characters that are good boyfriend material. Today I’m linking up with The Broke and the Bookish for a Top Ten Tuesday! This week’s theme: Top Ten Book

So quick story: I was totally going to take book photos OUTSIDE because the leaves in my yard scream FALL and this post is all about FALL. But it started pouring down rain as soon as I touched my camera and this is pretty much a metaphor for the entire day I so I just threw a book on the
You may remember my internal conflict abut Made You Up last year. I wanted so desperately to love it, but ultimately there were too many problems for me to overlook.

Whenever I first started reading books that had sex or drugs in them, I remember feeling really rebellious,
As you may know, I participated in The Reading Quest challenge hosted by Read at Midnight. The challenge started August 13 and ends today, September 10. I chose to participate as the knight, and outlined all the books I had planned to read for the knight’s quest and side quests here. Since I’m such a slow reader, I didn’t really have
I’m a slow reader. It’s basically my tagline here on the blog. But even as a slow reader, I can get through books relatively quickly if I want to (I finished three books last weekend!). And it has nothing to do with whether or not I enjoyed the book. I really liked a lot of books on this list, and
