Last day of the year and this means (I think) that I won’t be reading any new books on 2018, thus here’s my list of my 2018 Best Reads
This comes from the books I personally read, meaning they weren’t necessarily published this year (though some of them were).
The list is all the 5 stars books I added this year, you can go to the goodreads page by clicking the cover and to my own review by clicking the title underneath
Let me know what you think! Continue reading “2018 Favorite Books!”
It’s already been a year since I did my New Year’s Bookish Resolutions so now I hold myself accountable and see how much of New year New me actually made it into 2018

Memorable books with the letter W
I was hoping to finish this meme on 2018 but that’s not the case… oh well, you’ll have to wait until next year for the next letter
I like to think I’m funny

There’s HOW MUCH left?? When did this happen…
Anyways the other day I saw Kaleena @Reader Voracious do this one and since 2018 is running out I’m doing it! Continue reading “End of the Year Tag”
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

I’m trying to do as many Christmas-themed tags as I can while the time is right so here’s a new one. I saw Sara @TheBibliophagist doing this one and since HP is common ground for almost every reader out here I’m doing it as well!

Bringing this up again because I just read the cutest fic and it’s the season of fluffy short stories!
This week was dedicated to
Alternate Universe: Gilmore Girls
Word Count: 7,344
When Neil promised Kayleigh that he’d look out for Kevin if anything ever happened to her he’d never expected to be a single teenage father hiding out in a small town. Luckily the town’s residents seem keen to adopt them.
A Gilmore Girls AU where Kevin’s a kid, Neil’s his caffeine-addict father, and Andrew’s a grumpy diner owner who loves them both.
What drew me in:
I actually follow this author since I enjoy everything they write. The Single Parent trope isn’t something I’d usually read but since it was from them I gave it a chance
Basically, Neil runs away with toddler!Kevin and finds refuge in a small town called Palmetto where every character of the series lives. He crashed at Andrew’s diner and from there finds his footing with the help of basically everyone we know and love while dealing with being a single parent to Kevin who is just as annoyingly lovable as in canon.
This fic is absolutely adorable and the perfect balance between plot and fluff. We cover from the very beginning, how Neil ends up with baby Kevin and then runs away with him, until Kevin is 16 and finally starting to figure out his life while helping his (as always) oblivious but caring father to figure out his own shit.
Basically, a perfect end-of-the-year fanfic to feel good and de-stress
Spoiler-y quote ahead but still my favorite so here:
“Your father is the man who would do anything for you. Who gives you shelter and makes sure you’re dressed and fed. The one who goes to all your exy games and helps you with your homework and loves you unconditionally. You know exactly who your father is.”
Memorable books with the letter V
Fun Fact: In Spain’s Spanish this letter is called Uve but in Argentina’s Spanish it’s short b, this distinction is apparently important and you’ll be completely impossible to understand if you use the incorrect form in either country (Source: a bitter immigrant)
