Madeleine: Our Daughter's Disappearance and the Continuing Search for Her
Madeleine: Our Daughter’s Disappearance and the Continuing Search for Her

The reason, I’m choosing Kate McCann is because she tried everything to find her child, it’s okay if you don’t agree me. This is just my opinion.

May 1st: Bookish Things I’ve Changed My Mind About
— This can cover any bookish topic you want: tropes, characters, TBRs, genres, anything!

The first thing that comes to mind; it’s how uncomfortable I’ve become when it comes to reading sex scenes in books, so books like the one below don’t work for me anymore.

Sex in C Major
Sex in C Major
by Matthew J. Metzger

I gave up trying to read all the books on my tbr, so instead, I use it as a guide to guide me for the books I want to read that month.

I appreciate when an author knows about the topic she/he writing about or has done their research.

When reading romance, I prefer LGBT+ characters.

As a teen historical fiction scared but as an adult I love it.

A few years ago I thought there were only a few book lovers like me; however, as I found the book community, I knew I was very wrong.

Top Five Wednesday/ Bloggers Shout Out

April 17th: Favorite SFF Booktubers -Booktube SFF Awards Crossover Topic-
— Discuss your favorite booktubers who discuss science fiction and fantasy books! (This is for the Booktube SFF Awards, but you could also include bloggers and IGers as well!)

Hey, as most of you know a life dream of mine is to become a full-time blogger/writer, we all can dream, can’t we? For only that reason I will go with bloggers all the way for this list. However, I feel unfair about choosing five to make it on the list. So, I’m going to pick by going on my reader’s section on WordPress and choose five book blogs at random. I think as a twist I’ll add a song to which blog.

Halei at degeneratereads

I just found her blog a few days ago and she writes awesome posts, also thanks for the likes girl.

The Song

 

Linda at Linda’s Little Library

Her blog like mine, is still small but growing fast.

The Song

 

Katy At Books And Munches

She always makes me hunger.

The Song

 

Miriam at shadowriverdaleharley

She tagged me in a few tags and we become friends.

The song

 

Terra  at Bookbanditblog

She’s a good friend of mine and we do buddy reads together, thanks for caring about me girl.

The Song

Hope you enjoyed,

Alex

My Life Among the Underdogs: A Memoir
My Life Among the Underdogs: A Memoir

When reading this book I cried and laughed, I cried because hearing what some of the dogs had to go through in their lives played with my emotions, however, the dogs in this book are pure jokesters.

April 3rd: Collectibles on Bookshelf
–Discuss your favorite collectibles on your shelf, whether they are special editions of books, funko pops/figurines, candles, bookmarks, etc! They don’t all have to be from the same category; you can mix and match 🙂

The issue I’m having this is that I don’t own a bookshelf because where I live, I don’t have space for one. So, I keep my book is a plastic box. If I were to look for my lovely bookmarks, I wouldn’t be able to find them because that’s what happens when you need things right now, they disappear. However, I didn’t want to skip this week’s post, so I’m doing the bookmarks I would love to have instead. You must do what you must sometimes do.
