Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week there’s a new topic for a top ten list.

I feel like I start every post with “It’s been a minute since I’ve…” but it’s true! It’s been a pretty huge minute since I’ve done anything on here. I won’t blame you if you forgot who I was or that this blog even existed. Seriously, it’s fine.

I did make a post a few days ago saying I wanted to get back into the groove of things, but it’s kind of hard to post new content like reviews and such when I haven’t been reading that much since my last legitimate blog post. I know I said I wanted to try and stay away from memes and tags and such, but if that’s all of the content I can put out at the moment, then it’s better to have this than nothing, yeah?

Today’s topic is the most unique books that you’ve read. I might not have 10, but I know I have at least a couple. Again, better than nothing! Like always, click the book cover to be taken to their Goodreads page.

I was very confused during pretty much the entirety of this book. I had no clue what was going on, who was who, what was what. It was a mess. But I was still so into it! I buddy read this with one of my Twitter best friends, Jessica, and we both devoured it. This was one of my most intimidating books on my TBR and I’m so glad that I can say I’ve read it. About the rest of the series, though…

Daughter of Smoke & Bone

Now it wouldn’t be a typical post from me if I didn’t mention my girl, Laini. I’m not a huge fan of the angel trope. I can’t get into any of the books with them and it just wasn’t happening. This is such a different twist on “devil and angel” and it’s incredible. She likes to throw in plot twists, too.

Not a Drop to Drink

I don’t think there are many books out that are like this one, but if you know of some, shoot them my way! I really liked dystopian novels and this one is a completely different take on the typical setting. It doesn’t have zombies or crazy monsters, but it does have some interesting twists. The characters are relatable and normal, so to speak. Definitely an interesting read!

Elsewhere

This book is probably one of the most unique books that I’ve ever read. It’s set in the afterlife, otherwise known as “Elsewhere,” and it’s so interesting to read someone’s take on the afterlife. I’m sensing a reread of this one in the future!

I think 4 is a good number to stop on! There are a few more books that I personally felt like they were unique, but there are tons more books like them that I’ve never read. If you’ve read any of these books, let me know and we can discuss how amazing they are!

Are you still shocked that I’m making this post? Because I am.

Where Have I Been? | Life Update

Hi strangers! Miss me?

If you’ve noticed, I’ve been a bit MIA for the last month or two from the blog. I wasn’t in a very good place mentally and I needed to take a break from some things. Life is slowly getting back on track though and I’ve had more of an interest to read lately, so back to blogging! I really hope I’m able to keep up with this on a more consistent basis. I really do love and enjoy doing it, but it becomes extremely stressful at times.

One thing that I found myself stressing over was trying to make my blog perfect. I wanted to be up there with all of the popular blogs, but I felt like my content was a bit lacking. I felt like I had to buy all of the new releases, get all of the ARCs, have witty and creative discussions. But in reality, I don’t have any of that. I felt like I wasn’t reading fast enough to keep up with everybody. My tags were never exciting because I had all of the same answers. Same with my top 10 lists. Nothing was new or special. I need to get over that and blog for the enjoyment of blogging.

I really would like to get my blog somewhat back to normal and on a regular schedule, but it might not happen immediately. I’m still in a bit of reading slump and haven’t found any books to kick me out of it yet. If you have any suggestions, I would love some. Also, if there is anything you would like to see on Geronimo Reads, please let me know.

It’s good to be back!

PS) Sorry for the lack of GIFS and pictures. I just wanted to do a quick update! 🙂 ❤
