This has been a busy and stressful week for me. My dad was in the ICU with an infection and this morning he is having surgery on his spine. It’s all very serious and has taken a mental tole on me, so I have appreciated reading some good books this week. I read The Other Side, an ARC of Teardrop Shot, an ARC of Nine (King, #9), andΒ Played (Trapped, #2) by Beverley Kendall.

Currently Reading

I am starting an ARC of Heartache and Hope (Heartache Duet, #1).

Reading Next

Up next is yet another ARC. This time it’s The Accidental Girlfriend.

Top Ten Tuesday: Unpopular Bookish Opinions

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is:

Unpopular Bookish Opinions

Here are some opinions that might not be so popular with some of you.


1. I like abs on covers.

A lot of people aren’t fans of shirtless men gracing the covers of books. I’m not for them because I want to stare at them while I read. To be honest, I don’t look at covers all that much while reading because I do it on my Kindle. Why I don’t mind them is when I’m looking for a sports romance, I expect them. They kind of steer me in the right direction.

2. I like people and couples on covers.

I think they’re cute.

3. Cartoon-ish Covers Are Being Used Too Much Lately

I know the fad right now in romance is to have cute, cartoon covers. I like them, but I’m starting to feel like they’re getting to be too prevalent. There are books that don’t warrant a cutesy cover getting one. I also don’t like that authors are switching already cool existing covers to cartoon covers now.

4. I’m tired of seeing so many tweets about needing more new adult books.

I don’t want to start anything with this, but there are a TON of new adult books out there. They have been around for years. People are still writing them. They haven’t gone away. Yes, they’re mainly ROMANCE novels. New adult rose as a romance sub-genre. I get that it’s used for genres other than romance, but saying in a tweet that it needs to come back is inaccurate. The sub-genre never left. Maybe there weren’t as many books traditionally published from other genres in recent years, but it didn’t die. Plus, it has always been more popular in indie publishing. Maybe that’s a factor. I don’t know. It just always makes me roll my eyes when I see those tweets.

5. Book Hoarding

You don’t need to own every book out there. I have 6 shelves of books at my house. If my 6 shelves run over, I get rid of books. I sell them or pass them on to others. I don’t get more bookshelves. I only hold on to books that are signed, I’ve loved dearly, or am saving for my daughter to read in a couple of years. Yes, books are pretty and can feel like a status symbol at times. If you’re not going to re-read them or they’re just taking up space, why not share them with someone else?

6. I Don’t Like to Buy Used Books / Physical Library Books

I’m going to blame my dead grandmother for this one. She had a thing against used books. Grandma Faye was born in 1910, and I think they worried about the germs from used books a lot when she was alive. I just don’t like the smell of them. They kind of gross me out. I will read newer library books, though.

Okay, I can’t think of anything else.
