Top Ten Tuesday – Anticipated Spring 2019 Releases

The Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly challenge post previously hosted by The Broke and Bookish and now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. You can follow along for each weekly post here. This week’s post is counting the ten books that are on my spring TBR list. Because I always have waaaaay too many books to make a list like that, I decided to twist it a little and count the top ten books I’m excited are releasing this spring, from March 20th to June 21st, because I’m a Ravenclaw and I get technical here ;)

Music Monday {8}

Music Monday is a weekly post where you can share a song, a music video or anything musical related that you’re feeling awesome about that week. Here on What A Nerd Girl Says, I will almost always share a song that I’m super into that week and the music video, if any, that goes with it!

This week’s song is from a band that I’ve listened to on and off since I was ten years old. No Doubt’s album, Tragic Kingdom, was the first CD I ever bought, so it has a meaning for me and I listened to that CD until it was worn and scratched. I am picking this song because of my recent obsession with the movie, Captain Marvel, and the significance of that song in the movie.

Flashback Friday Review: Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst

The Flashback Friday review is where I take a book I recently reread and review it with new eyes. It could be a book I’m reading for the second, third, fourth or millionth time. Some books haven’t been read in years so its fun to flashback and see if my opinion has changed!

This week’s book is Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst. I realized I never reviewed it when I originally read it so its being reviewed the second round!

Please keep in mind that Flashback Friday reviews are based on reread books. They most likely will contain spoilers as the books have already been released for some time. This is your only warning if you want to avoid spoilers for these books.

Waiting on Wednesday (23)

This Waiting on Wednesday is the newest novel from one of my teen favorites, Sarah Dessen. I’ve been reading Sarah since I read Someone Like You and I’ve bought and read every single book that she’s released since then. To be clear, I read that book when I was 14 years old in 2002. So I’ve been reading Sarah for so long and I eagerly await her new release every year.

Top Ten Tuesday – Favorite Female Characters in Fiction

The Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly challenge post previously hosted by The Broke and Bookish and now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. You can follow along for each weekly post here. This week’s post was originally all about standalone novels that are in need of a sequel. I struggled to come up with ideas but I’m feeling particularly girl power today, as it was just International Women’s Day and it was a wonderful weekend for the release of Captain Marvel.

So today I’m counting down the top ten women characters that I love in fiction to celebrate it all.
