Top Ten Tuesday | Most Anticipated Releases in the Last Half of 2019

Happy Tuesday, bloggers!

I truly believe 2019 is a stellar year for new releases. And while the first half of 2019 is over, I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that we’re half way through the year.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. This week’s topic is anticipated releases in the last half of the year. I have so many to count, but I want to show off some titles I’m eagerly waiting to read. I hope you find either new reads or your favourites.

Have fun!

Thank You, Next Book Tag

Happy Saturday!

These past few days have been a whirlwind of activity, and I’ve had little time to do anything. Unfortunately, I haven’t been around in the blogosphere lately. So I wanted to start the weekend off with a new tag post.

I thank JoBeth from Blue Binding for tagging me. Please do not miss out on her blog!

Top Ten Tuesday | Books I Refuse to Let Anyone Touch

Happy Tuesday, bloggers,

Oh goody, I get to show the world of how weird I am. Scratch that. You probably already know. But I might as well give you more examples, am I right?

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The next topic is all about books we don’t want anyone, including other book lovers, touching. Frankly, I don’t let anyone, except my Mom, go near my books. I don’t let anyone borrow them either. So since I don’t own many signed or special copies, they hold more meaning for me. But I may have an awful case of OCD. I don’t know which.

So let’s get to the list, yes? I hope you enjoy the read.

Top Ten Tuesday | Characters Who Remind Me of Myself

Morning, darlings!

May is, I hope, turning out to be a fresh start. And I am counting down the days to celebrate my 30th birthday. And even though I am undecided of what to do, I’m intrigued to see what this new decade will offer. But I have to admit that I’m more excited to read some of my anticipated books more than anything, really. 😂

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The first TTT prompt of the month is characters who remind us of ourselves. Ahaha, I get to show off my dark (and slightly weird) side. 😈 So get ready for stabby and powerful women!

Beyond the Blurb | Why We Should Defend Negative Reviews

Morning, bloggers!

Bloggers sometimes dread writing bad or low-rated reviews. Authors possibly fear them more. So why is writing them such a taboo topic? Frankly, it shouldn’t. As reviewers and bloggers, we make some unspoken promise to be honest with our readers. How can we not? But I’ve seen other bloggers face attacks for their honesty.

Jenn from Jenniely inspired me to write this post (thank you, deary!). She discussed the reasons why she doesn’t write negative reviews. And I agree with her. For my next discussion post though, I want to address why they’re important and why we should write them.

Most Anticipated Reads of May 2019

Good morning, readers,

May is my birth month. Typically, it’s pretty quiet for me. I don’t do much, and this years, all I want to do is read and avoid the world. But the book community is buzzing with new books. And I haven’t been this excited for a month until I saw what is being released. I feel it now. May will be exceptional.

Now, I haven’t listed all the forthcoming titles. So this list isn’t complete. But here are my most anticipated releases:

Monthly Wrap-Up | April 2019

Morning, everyone!

Who else struggled with April? I honestly wanted to read more books and to buy them too. But I didn’t care if I did either. And since I had to dodge Avengers spoilers, I took some time away from my blog and my social media accounts. You don’t know how good it felt for not dealing with a self-imposed deadline.

Let me tell you that I cried, and I still feel hollowed out after watching that movie. But I’ve never been so proud to be a part of this franchise and family. #ILoveYou3000

Not let’s get back to blogging. This post is short (somewhat) and sweet (I hope). I hope you love it!

Top Ten Tuesday | Thought-Provoking Book Quotes

Morning, bloggers!

I’ll be glad once this terribly bitter month is over. Either it’s winter in the early morning, spring in the afternoon, or the apocalypse by dinner time. Yesteryday, I wasn’t surprised when I saw hail.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The final prompt for this month is inspirational or thought-provoking book quotes. I want to use the latter for my next post. So here are my top picks!

Top Ten Tuesday | First Books I Reviewed

Happy Tuesday, bloggers!

Who’s happy to go down memory lane? Blogging for almost three years, I forget where I’ve come from and what books I’ve read or even reviewed. So having this prompt is a good surprise.

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, we’re going back in time and show off the first books we reviewed. I want a mixture of reviews I made on Goodreads and my blog. So you may see a few of my favourite books and ones I haven’t read in years.

I hope you love the post!
