Groundhog Day…Again? (Re-reads to Celebrate!)

Okay Bookworms, rise and shine and don’t forget your booties because it’s coooooold out there! It’s Groundhog Day, you guys can’t honestly expect me NOT to run around quoting Bill Murray movies. In the spirit of the immortal 1993 cinematic classic Groundhog Day, I’m going to list some books that I could read again and again and again and again… This really means something coming from me, because there are… Read more »

Animal Crackers in my Books: An Idiosyncratic Lit List

Animal Crackers in my Books: An Idiosyncratic Lit List

What does the fox say, Bookworms? I know, I just went there. You’re welcome to chastise me in the comments. It’s occurred to me recently that a lot of the books I’ve read have animals in their titles. They may or may not have anything at all to do with the animals mentioned, but you know how much I like listing. I didn’t want to trouble myself with content when… Read more »

The Bird Is the Word (An Idiosyncratic Lit List)

Tweet tweet, Bookworms! It feels like there’s something missing in my life, and that something is a nonsensical book list. In the spirit of doing things just for the heck of it, I’ve compiled a list of books for y’all today that include birds in the title. Because why the heck not?  1. The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell (review 1, review 2)- Fake Spoiler Alert: It’s not about a bird…. Read more »

Double Vision (An Idiosyncratic Lit List)

Double Vision (An Idiosyncratic Lit List)

Hidey Ho, Bookworms! It’s been a while since I put together an Idiosyncratic Lit List, and after reading Two Lovely Berries last week, I’m inspired to talk about twins in literature. I’m seeing double here, kids. Let’s get twinny with it. 1. Nora and Aubrey Daley from Two Lovely Berries by AM Blair (review): Oh these girls! They knew they’d never be the dress-alike-and-live-together-forever kind of twins, but they didn’t see all… Read more »

Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto: An Idiosyncratic Lit List

Konnichiwa Bookworms, The other day Hubs and I were driving somewhere when everyone’s favorite Styx song came on the radio. I share this because it’s important, and I don’t want to be the only one with the song stuck in my head. Behold: Now that we all have robots on the brain, let’s talk about some of the coolest artificial intelligence in literature, shall we? 1. Cinder by Marissa Meyer: Everybody’s… Read more »

Reading Rainbow: An Idiosyncratic Lit List

Reading Rainbow: An Idiosyncratic Lit List

Happy Tuesday, Bookworms! For a while now, I’ve been on a personal quest. I’ve been trying to complete my very own Reading Rainbow. There are a ton of great books that list colors in their titles, and I wanted to have read one for each of the colors in the rainbow. This is how my brain works. Don’t judge me. 1. The RED Tent by Anita Diamant (review): You know all about… Read more »

Books about Book Clubs: An Idiosyncratic Lit List

Books about Book Clubs: An Idiosyncratic Lit List

What’s up, Bookworms? I have been having so much fun with The Fellowship of the Worms lately. Y’all are a super fantastic crew to have a book club with. I also adore my neighborhood book club (lovingly dubbed “My Neighbors Are Better Than Your Neighbors.”) Frankly, all the book club love has got me thinking about books about book clubs. Naturally. Who’s ready for a list?! 1. Angry Housewives Eating… Read more »

Mister, Mister: An Idiosyncratic Lit List

Mister, Mister: An Idiosyncratic Lit List

G’Day Bookworms, You know what’s fun? Making lists around words, of course! I hope you were expecting me to bust out with 80s ballad “Broken Wings,” because then I won’t feel weird for titling this post in an ambiguous manner. (Mr. Mister? Anybody? Bueller?) I think it’s time we make a list of some fabulous and quirky bookish misters, don’t you? 1. Mr. Popper’s Penguins by Richard and Florence Atwater:… Read more »
