Top Ten Tuesday | Books I Meant to Read In 2018 but Didnโ€™t Get To

I never thought one of my posts would make me feel guilty over not reading enough books. But here I am. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. For this week’s prompt, we get to talk about books we wanted to read last year but never got to them.

This week, I’m keeping my list short. I hope you all enjoy!

The Sleeping Beauty Book Tag

I’ll just admit this now: I’m not a huge fan of Sleeping Beauty. But once I watched Maleficent, I was hooked though. I’m more of a Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid fan. But you know me about Disney and tags. I’m predictable, I know.

Mandy and Sha tagged me. Thank you, dearies! This pick-me-up is just what I’ve been looking for! So let’s get to the tag, yes?

Top Ten Tuesday | 2019 Books I’m Anticipating the Most

Okay, I’ll admit: I made this list much smaller than it truly is. I wouldn’t be surprised if it balloons to more than 30 books. I may want to reign in my TBR list, but I doubt I’ll tackle that task in my lifetime.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. For the next topic, we show off our anticipated reads of the first half of 2019. So my list may be short, but at least I won’t keep you here for forever. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hope you enjoy my picks. And I can’t wait to see what you choose for your list!

2018 End of Year Book Survey

I wanted to do a yearly wrap-up post, but I cannot put together all of my favourite reads in one post. So when I found this book survey on Perpetual Page-Turner, I knew I found a solution. If you haven’t done so already, I recommend doing it as well.

2018 was a rough but thrilling ride, and I’m so happy to make it to another year. I hope you all enjoy the post, which may be long, so here are my apologies!

Monthly Wrap-Up | December 2018

Morning, book fam!

Who else feels drained from the holidays? I’ve been getting in some solid 10-hour nights, but I still feel exhausted. So I am glad I’m still on my work break, or I couldn’t function properly. Hopefully, for my new year’s resolution, I’ll get back into the blogging swing. I’ve missed talking with all of you.

But Christmas turned out great, and New Year’s Eve just set off a great new start to 2019. Is anyone freaking out over the number of books we need to buy and read this year?

Top Ten Tuesday | Best Books I Loved Reading in 2018

Happy New Year, book fam!

I cannot wait to see what 2019 has in store for all of us. Who else is excited? I am. And I’ve already filled up my yearly TBR list, which may be well over 50 books.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. For my first post of 2019, we highlight the best books of 2018.

 

Empire of Storms

I haven’t moved past this book. It broke me, and I am still healing. I regret not reading the series sooner. I went into Sarah’s ACOTAR before this one, but I feel so connected to each character, especially Aelin.

 

Lifel1k3

THIS BOOK. THESE CHARACTERS. THIS AUTHOR. He is a god, and I am a measly mortal who doesn’t deserve this gorgeous and out-of-this-world sci-fi. Androids wanting to kill their maker will always be my favourite storyline.

 

The Cruel Prince

I hate but love Cardan, but he is a conflicted character who has never seen kindness in Faerie. But with Jude and Cardan, I am an instant Holly fan. But what seals my fate is how she write a beautiful plot twist.

 

This Fallen Prey

When Kelley detoured into mystery and thriller stories, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But I never should have doubted my one of my favourite authors. Even though the third addition in the Rockton series was a bit predictable, I love this atmospheric novel.

 

Warcross

You all know I rarely read sci-fi. But Warcross makes me want to dabble in that genre more. Emika is one of favourite and the most relatable character I’ve read. But what I love the most is the world building. It far exceeds itself. And I want to immerse myself in Warcross.

Out of My Comfort Zone Book Tag

Do you know how long I’ve been dreading this tag? I love tags. You all know I do. But I’ve been wondering how long I’d push this one off. The lovely Kathy from Books and Munches tagged me. Or should I say torture me?

One Major Rule

You have to pick ONE GENRE that you frequently read about and then you canโ€™t use ANY books from that genre while answering the questions!

WHY WOULD ANYONE MAKE THIS RULE?! Okay, okay. I’m fine. I always read YA fantasy, so I’m screwed for all of these questions. ๐Ÿ˜… Let’s get to the post, yes?

Top Ten Tuesday | Books I Wish Were under my Christmas Tree

Merry Christmas, everyone!!!

It’s here! And I am just as giddy as a child when Christmas has arrived. But the 29-year-old in me wants nothing more than to sleep in, but my Mom and I will never get the bird in the oven in time unless we open the presents early. Priorities, right? Right?!

Since I make a list (and check it twice ๐Ÿ˜‰), I already know which books are under my tree. So I want to put my personal spin on this week’s topic. I couldn’t grab all the books I hoped to buy because a postal strike killed my shopping plans. So here are my top picks of books I wish were under my Christmas tree.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy Holidays! ๐ŸŽ„
