Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.
This week’s was blogger’s choice: top ten characters who ____. I’m picking my favorite literary siblings! As the youngest with two older brothers with whom I am close, books with siblings who are present and important to the story are almost always winners with me! These are some of my favorites. :)
Last fall, I went on a personal quest to cut down the TBR pile – specifically, books I’d bought, never read, and that had been silently judging me for their long-term tenure in my TBR piles. One of my goals for 2014 is to finish off those last TBR Madnessbooks and to keep my pile under 20.

[book-info]My Review of “Finding Angel”:

This same type of overcorrection is what led to girls not being able to wear spaghetti straps or even sleeveless shirts because your bra strap might be showing and God forbid a teenage boy see it and remember that girls wear bras because girls have boobs.
[book-info]My Review of “Better Off Friends”:
*dances through forest with book*
Sometimes you know exactly what kind of book you want to read, and for me, a lot of times that involves the best friends fall in love trope.
