Hailey in Bookland did this in her channel and I think it’d be fun to do it as well, because we love de-cluttering books not worthy of space in our shelves. 😁 So list out thirty books that you would keep if you were Marie Kondo!

Google Translates My Favorite Books

Hello and happy Thanksgiving-eve!!

So I have a tiny confession to make–I am obsessed with The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. There! I said it! Like it’s almost hilarious how much I have binged over the weekend.

But during my binge-athon I came across his segment where him and the interviewees sing popular songs that have gone through the infamous Google Translate. Now after my watching this fourth one, the idea struck me–what would come out of Google if I had it translate some of my favorite book’s synopsis‘? Thus this post was born. As an example of the hilarity of all of this, I thought I would start off with translating my Blog’s name:

My name, fictionally Sam, translated back to English from Khomer is: Sam Sam invented.

What a time to be alive.

I honestly don’t even know what to say after that, so grab some popcorn, get comfy, and lets see what happens! Continue reading “Google Translates My Favorite Books”

Top 10 Tuesday: Unread Books From My Favorite Authors


This is a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish, but is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! Each week brings a different theme and you choose ten books that fit that theme. If you’d like to particiapte you can check out upcoming topics here.

Okay peeps, this weeks topic was kind of challenging for me because ya girl is a mood reader, thus her favorites depend on her mood. So you can kind of see how pick favorite authors can be an uphill battle right? But alas, I tried to garner a favorite from every genre that I usually read and then choose a book that I haven’t read from them (which was also a feat because I’ve been known to be an author binger).

But in any case! Here are 10 Books in absolutely no particular order or fashion that I have not read from my favorite authors! Continue reading “Top 10 Tuesday: Unread Books From My Favorite Authors”
