Yes, yes, y’all! It’s TBT time! Clueless and knee-highs, discmans and guys with hoop earrings…and the Foo Fighters singing this week’s throwback jam!
Yes, make me feel eleven again!
I have loved the Foo Fighters since the first moment I saw this video on Much Music in 1996. And today I get to fulfill a bucket list item of seeing them live in concert. Me and the husband have a date tonight in Toronto to see the Foo Fighters at the Rogers Stadium. I can’t even fully explain what it means to me to be doing this, so I won’t even try.
Just know that Dave Grohl is my one and only god. I literally have a picture of him framed on my wall in my living room. Not a poster. No. This is art. Framed art of Dave Grohl.
I love him. And I also love books (talk about a segue.) Here’s a look at books I’ve read and still love, and at books that have been on my TBR for a while but still get me hyped.
Omigod, get your scrunchies and acid wash jeans, it’s #tbt time!
Okay, so acid wash and scrunchies are decidedly a very 90s reference, but I’m a 90s kid. I still think the 70s were like 20 years ago, not 40+. So, give me a break.
Anyway, here’s how bookworm #tbt works: Pick a book you read in the past, tell us why you love it. Then pick a book that’s been on your TBR for a while and give the reasons why you still want to read it after all this time.
This is typically a super easy post for me because my TBR pile is out of control! There’s not a chance in hell I’ll ever read everything I want to. I know you can relate.
I seriously love this post idea and I don’t do it enough, I think because it makes me feel like a giant asshole when I start looking at how many books I’ve been “meaning to read” for years and years.
I try to remind myself that it’s not completely my fault. Life gets in the way.
So inconsiderate, life.
Here’s the jist: Pick a book you read a while back, tell us why you love it. Then pick a book that’s been on your TBR for a while and tell us why you still want to read it after all this time. That’s #throwbackthursday for the bookworld, lovers!
I love this idea, created by It’s Book Talk. It’s a way to share books we love that were read forever ago, that maybe didn’t get a review posted. Or to highlight books still sitting in our TBRs that have been there a while…
…I have a lot of those, because I’m super talented at buying books and finding new books that I want to read, but my ability to read them at the same rate is like a ratio of 100:1.
