#T5W TOP 5 WEDNESDAY: Favorite Fathers/Father Figures


For those who don't know what Top 5 Wednesday is, it's a weekly book group about our top five favorite things in the middle of the week. 


Created by Lainey from GingerReadsLainey and now hosted by Samantha from ThoughtsonTomes, this week's entry describes our top 5 favorite fandom items. 

Since Sam had a busy month in May, we're back to our regularly scheduled programming with all-new topics this month. 

This week's topic: Favorite Father Figures


Summertime in Texas, Anxiety, Graduations, New Memes and More | MAY 2018 WRAP-UP


In Real Life (IRL)


My May was pretty uneventful up until the end of the month. My sister and her fiancé went back home to Texas, she had her baby girl, and now she's home! Both my sister and the baby are still adjusting to home life, especially with her two older daughters still living at home. My mom and I paid them a visit later in the month to see my younger niece graduate from high school, and even then was a lot of family drama. I know that it's typical for family to have a lot of drama, but in mine, it's just piles on top of each other until it bursts open. And meanwhile, my anxiety rides up because I don't know whether or not to speak up or let them fight each other until they get tired. Oftentimes, I just stay quiet because I internalize everything, so I feel like I have no choice but to just listen. And it hurts me the most because I hate seeing people I love hurting over stupid drama. 


TOP TEN TUESDAY #46: Why it’s important to DNF Books | My DNF “Policy”

Formerly hosted by Jamie, Jana and Lauren of BrokeandBookish.com, Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly book meme that presents top ten lists on Tuesdays that promotes favorite bookish themes. Since BrokeandBookish.com had officially shut down in January 2018, Jana from ThatArtsyReaderGirl has offered to continue the series on her blog. 

How it works:


I assign each Tuesday a topic and then post my top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join me and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.

This week's topic: Books I decided to DNF (did not finish) too Quickly (are you questioning your DNF choices on any books? If you have a policy to not DNF, put a spin on the topic to make it fit you.)



#BOOKBLOGGERHOP (June 1-7): What My Blog Says About Me




I'm currently on vacation in Texas with my family celebrating my second niece's high school graduation, so this post is technically early! Nevertheless, I'm still here with another new post. This week, we're discussing what my blog says about me. 

About the Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer's permission, I relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013.

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week's question submitted by Cathy @ What Cathy Read Next:
What do you think your blog says about you?
