Twenty is a special number. Why? No particular reason. It's nice. Divisible by five and four. A number that we, being base ten-raised people, appreciate. Also, I'm twenty years old. But twenty is special for a reason other than that. Twenty is special because I recently hit twenty followers.

(Okay, so I'm currently at 20+. But when I wrote this post I was at 20, and by Jove, I'm sticking with it! Plus, 20+ is not necessarily divisible by both four and five. Continuing now...)

While I am a starving college student (a starving unemployed bum with a diploma in less than two weeks) and therefore unable to afford big things for a twenty-follower-celebration, I would like to take a moment to say that I appreciate all of you who are hanging out in the wings, whether you're commenting or just reading. And to show part of my appreciation, I'm going to take a page from someone else's book and give out book recommendations.

If you are a follower (or just someone passing through), feel free to comment with the last five books you read and enjoyed, and I'll hunt down a good book for you to try out. While it may seem like I am perpetually inundated in YA sci-fi/fantasy, I am marginally more widely read than that and am pretty good at these sorts of things. (Considering I was raised in a library, it's only natural.)

Also, if you are a follower and want a chance to win something real, send followers my way! I promise to have something tangible to give out once I hit fifty.


  1. The last five I've read (in no particular order):
    Dear John by Nicholas Sparks
    The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
    The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks
    Nights in Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks
    Katherine by Anya Seton

    Bonus lol, I'm currently reading The Wise Woman by Philippa Gregory

  2. Nicholas Sparks-ish: The Christmas Box, by Richard Paul Evans

    Philippa Gregory: The Other Boleyn Girl <-- my favorite of hers!
