Top Ten Books Dealing With Tough Subjects

toptentuesday

This was a “tough” Top Ten to come up with, only because it was hard thinking back and trying to remember books that featured horrible subjects such as rape, suicide, cancer, and war. I don’t really like to think about those things a lot, but they happen nonetheless, and I think learning about the different situations and how to overcome them is the best thing you can do. You never know what is around the corner for you in life, and someday you might have to draw on that strength you learned about in a book of someone else’s tragedies.

So without further ado, here are my top ten books dealing with tough subjects. (They aren’t in any particular order.) Continue reading

Top Ten Books I Thought I’d Like MORE/LESS Than I Did

toptentuesdayI thought I’d start in on The Broke and the Bookish Tuesday topic of Top 10s lists because …I just like reasons to talk about books. That’s basically it! Well, I also need to get back into blogging more regularly here on my site as well. I got caught up in The Writer Diaries and kind of forgot about my own blogging. There are still a lot of personal tips and reflections I have to make for myself, so this blog isn’t going anywhere! Now that The Writer Diaries is up on its feet and in its third month, I can pull back a bit and take care of my own blog again.

So anyways, onto my lists! The topic for this Tuesday is, Top 10 Books I Thought I’d like More/Less than I actually did. Continue reading

I apologize dudes and dudettes for kind of being out of the loop these last few weeks at CTST Hop. I won that Lit class as many of you know and it’s been majorly kicking my butt. I’m not the kind of person to let my commitments slip so back to the grind I go with this post! Continue reading

Writing related: Well people, it finally happened. I hit 50,000 words this week!!!!! I will be doing a separate post on this later but let me just say, it feels super amazing. I probably won’t be highlighting every 10K of writing I get done with every other book going forward, but I just feel like for this first one that I am actually forcing myself to finish, it helps to keep me motivated and gives me a goal to work towards. And, come on, I think 50K is a big one! My only problem now is that I still feel like the ending isn’t that close and I don’t want to start getting into word count trouble. I guess lots of editing is in my future too then!

As far as non-related accomplishments go, my husband and I are on our way to refinancing out house and saving about an extra $110/month on our mortgage payment, so YAY for more money in my pocket!!! Now where to spend it….OH YEAH. Books.

What did you celebrate this week? Let me know in the comments or join the hop and I will find out on your blog!
