The TBR Mini Challenge - Hosted by Musings of a Bookshop Girl

Five Books at the Top of My TBR:

2. The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater - I loved the first book in this series
3. True Crime edited by Lee Gutkind - this is from Librarything, need to review
4. Necessary Errors by Caleb Crain - New Yorker recommended this
5. The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Shneider - I should read more contemporary 

Five Books on My Wishlist

1. Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay - Fairytale retelling!
2. Narrative Comprehension and Film by Edward Branigan - I'm fascinated by the mechanics of storytelling in all its forms
3. In the House upon the Dirt between the Lake and the Woods by Matt Bell -This could be interesting or possibly terrible
4. Sea Change by S.M Wheeler - This sounds right up my alley
5.Trick or Treat: A History of Halloween - Don't judge me


Bout of Books Day 4 Update

These past couple of days have been hectic so I haven't really been getting an appreciable amount of reading done. But I thought this challenge was awesome so here it is:


Bookish Mad Libs Challenge:


A. The River of No Return by Bee Ridgway
B. The Trunchbull - Matilda by Roald Dahl
C. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
D. One Thousand and One Nights: A Retelling by Hanan Al-Shaykh
E. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
F. Captain Wentworth - Persuasion by Jane Austen
G. Enemy Pie by Derek Munson

Help! I'm being held captive in  The River of No Return, by The Trunchbull!
It is very Great and Terrible here!
(He/She) is demanding  One Thousand and One Fangirl(s) to set me free!
I have just discovered that Captain Wentworth was captured too!
On second thought, please send Enemy Pies, and don't worry if you don't hear from us for awhile!

Much Love,


Jaime
