TopTenTuesday
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!

Hey, friends! Okay, I don’t really eat that much while reading! But I do drink a whole lot of different things, so I figured I would do a little post about them all, and I hope you enjoy this random content! Also, the last two do contain alcohol, so obviously do not drink those if you are not of legal drinking age! 💕


GT’s Trilogy Kombucha


Numi Organic Tea Jasmine Green


SToK Cold-Brew Iced Coffee, Unsweetened


Tazo Calm Chamomile Herbal


Trader Joe’s Organic Hot Cocoa Mix


Ocean Spray Cran-Apple Juice


Yogi Tea – Green Tea Kombucha


Coffee Starbucks Pike Place Roast


➽ Coors Light


➽ White Claw Mango Hard Seltzer



Again, those last two have alcohol so make sure you are of legal drinking age! But these really are the ten things I like to drink while reading, even though I drink water more than anything else! What is your favorite drink or snack while reading?   💗

Hey, loves! Okay, so the ten books that I am about to talk about all have the same thing in common; I am avoiding them because they have been on my TBR for so long and I truly don’t think they are going to hold up in 2019! So, I suppose we can make this T10T kind of like a Down the TBR hole, and you call can let me know if you think I’ll enjoy any of these, or if I should yeet them off my Goodreads TBR immediately! Muhahah! 💕


The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling (2012)


The Color of Magic (Discworld #1) by Terry Pratchett (1983)


Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer (2015) 


Inda (Inda #1) by Sherwood Smith (2006) 


Succubus Blues (Georgina Kincaid #1) by Richelle Mead (2007) 


The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield (2006)

An Ember in the Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes #1) by Sabaa Tahir (2015)


The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (2005) 



Okay, that’s the ten I’m picking and that I have been avoiding! Please let me know if you think any of these will hold up and be worth my time in 2019! And I hope you all are having the happiest of reading! 💗

Top Ten Tuesday | Most Anticipated Releases of the Second Half of 2019

TopTenTuesday
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!


Hey, friends! Long time, no Top Ten Tuesday! But oh my word, it feels so good to be back! Especially with a topic as good as this week’s! There are so many good books coming out during the last half of 2019, but I am still going to make a top ten ranking of the ten I absolutely cannot wait for, with a single sentence each that hopefully tells you why!


➽ 10.) Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker & Wendy Xu

Because anything LGBTQIAP+ with bookstores and witches will always get my money.


➽ 9.) The Tea Dragon Festival (Tea Dragon #2) by Katie O’Neill

Because few things in life make me happier than The Tea Dragon Society!


➽ 8.) Girls of Storm and Shadow (Girls of Paper and Fire #2) by Natasha Ngan

Because seeing an ownvoices queer, Asian book, staring a f/f romance, make The New York Times Best Seller list is all I’ve ever wanted, and all I continue to want.


➽ 7.) The Never Tilting World (The Never Tilting World #1) by Rin Chupeco

Because Rin Chupeco answers all my prayers!


➽ 6.) Dead Voices (Small Spaces #2) by Katherine Arden

Because Katherine Arden is my lyrical writing bae, forever.


➽ 5.) His Hideous Heart

Because this is the anthology to end all other anthologies, because of Rin Chupeco and Kendare Blake reimagining Edgar Allan Poe.


➽ 4.) Steel Crow Saga (Steel Crow Saga #1) by Paul Krueger

Because this is a Filipino author, inspired by his love of anime.


➽ 3.) Gideon the Ninth (The Ninth House #1) by Tamsyn Muir

Because, yes, I’ve already read this, but it’s my favorite debut of all time and you all need lesbian necromancers in your life, damn it!


➽ 2.) Ninth House (Alex Stern #1) by Leigh Bardugo

Because I’m that bitch, but you all are, too!


➽ 1.) The Queen of Nothing (The Folk of the Air #3) by Holly Black

Because this wouldn’t be a Meltotheany list without a Holly Black as my #1!



Okay, friends! I hope you enjoyed this half as much as I did writing it up! Please, let me know what is your most anticipated release for the last half of the year! And, as always, I’m wishing you all the happiest of reading!

Top Ten Tuesday | Favorite Book Quotes

TopTenTuesday
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!

If you know me at all, you know I am such a quote searcher. Lyrical prose is probably my favorite element of reading! So when I saw that this week’s topic was wanting us to showcase some of our favorite quotes, I knew I had to participate! And I hope you all enjoy! (PS – I am very aware that I’m sappy & a hopeless romantic!) 💕


Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man’s Fear

“It had flaws, but what does that matter when it comes to matters of the heart? We love what we love. Reason does not enter into it. In many ways, unwise love is the truest love. Anyone can love a thing because. That’s as easy as putting a penny in your pocket. But to love something despite. To know the flaws and love them too. That is rare and pure and perfect.”


Holly Black, The Darkest Part of the Forest

“We love until we do not. For us, love doesn’t fade gradually. It snaps like a branch bent too far.”


J.D. Salinger, A Girl I Knew

“She wasn’t doing a thing that I could see, except standing there leaning on the balcony railing, holding the universe together.”


Angie Thomas, The Hate U Give

“That’s the problem. We let people say stuff, and they say it so much that it becomes okay to them and normal for us. What’s the point of having a voice if you’re gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn’t be?”


Taylor Jenkins Reid, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

“Please never forget that the sun rises and sets with your smile. At least to me it does. You’re the only thing on this planet worth worshipping.”


V.E. Schwab, A Conjuring of Light

“Love and loss,” he said, “are like a ship and the sea. They rise together. The more we love, the more we have to lose. But the only way to avoid loss is to avoid love. And what a sad world that would be.”


George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

“We are only human, and the gods have fashioned us for love. That is our great glory, and our great tragedy.”


Madeline Miller, The Song of Achilles

“I could recognize him by touch alone, by smell; I would know him blind, by the way his breaths came and his feet struck the earth. I would know him in death, at the end of the world.”


Elliot Wake, Black Iris

“I wouldn’t have to explain that I fall in love with minds, not genders or body parts.”


Edwidge Danticat, Breath, Eyes, Memory

“Love is like the rain. It comes in a drizzle sometimes. Then it starts pouring and if you’re not careful it will drown you.”



Ah, my heart! All ten of these mean the world to me. And it was actually really hard to narrow down if I’m being honest. But please, let me know your favorite quote and the book it is from! Also, friendly reminder, while you are reading this: I am in Hawaii, so if I’m slow writing back and/or seeing your favorite quotes, I promise to fix that when I get home! I hope you all are having the happiest of reading! 💖
