Top Ten Tuesday | Books for My Younger Self

Happy Tuesday, bloggers!

Reading was a luxury when I was younger. I couldn’t always read the books I wanted. So I missed out on a lot of series I wish I had.

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 prompt is books for my younger self. So here are the series I wish I could read when younger.

Enjoy the post!

Top Ten Tuesday | Books On My TBR I’m Avoiding Reading

Happy Tuesday, bloggers!

Fall is quickly arriving, I’m trying to catch up on my Goodreads Challenge, and I feel as if this year is flying by too quickly. Life needs to slow down for a month or more so I can catch my breath.

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 prompt is books on my TBR I’m avoiding and why. I am loving this topic. Why? Because I avoid so many titles that I’m not surprised my TBR list is this large.

I hope you love my choices! Have fun, everyone!

Top Ten Tuesday | Books on My Spring 2019 TBR

Typically, when a new season arrives, I come out with new graphics. I have the clipart, but, uh, life has decided to kick start my inner klutz. First, I sprained my toe. And while working today, I badly bruised my tailbone when the insidious chair I was sitting on collapsed. So I’m slightly behind on my blog because of that and because of my Mom’s treatments. You’re stuck with the winter theme.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. Besides breaking my butt, I’m excited for the new Spring titles coming. But the new season also allows us to check up on our backlist, which mine is in desperate need of trimming.

So I hope you all enjoy my choices! Have fun, everyone!

Top Ten Tuesday | Books I Meant to Read In 2018 but Didn’t Get To

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

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!

End of the Year Book Tag | 2018

Hey everyone,

Everything seems to start winding down or speeding up, and I’m feeling both at the moment. I can’t imagine we’re so close to Christmas and the new year, and I still have so much more to accomplish for 2018. But I’m counting down the days for my holiday break, which is definitely needed right now.

I found this fantastic book tag on My World of Books. You need to check out Sahi’s blog. I love it! I hope you all enjoy.

 

Are There Any Books You Started This Year That You Need to Finish?

Oh no, not this question. During my slump, I started so many books that I lost count. But these need to be at the top of my list though.

 

Do You Have an Autumnal Book to Transition into the End of the Year?

Typically, I don’t. I’m such a mood reader and don’t usually reread books anymore.

 

Is There a New Release That You’re Still Waiting For?

I’ve waited for these books for such a long time, but I’m scared to read them, especially QOAAD, which will just bring pain, misery, and tears.

 

What Are Three Books You Want to Read before the End of the Year?

I literally do not have the time to attempt these titles, but I don’t care. I need some binge-reading right now.

 

Is There a Book You Think Could Still Shock You and Become a Favourite of the Year?

You all know I’m a huge fan of historical fiction set in WWII. I’ve read nothing but stellar reviews for this book, and I cannot wait to dive into it.

 

Have You Already Started Making Reading Plans for 2019?

Of course! I hope to do more buddy reads, read more books (others than just the 50 for my Goodreads challenge), get into more romance novels, take more risks with my blog and not freak out when I do them, and take the plunge with Instagram, which intimidates me more than you’ll ever believe.


Tag Time!

You know the deal: if you feel pressured to squeeze this book tag into your already tight schedule, by all means, don’t be. You aren’t obligated to do it. If you want to, or if I haven’t tagged you in this, then go ahead. But link back to my post. I’d love to see what you’ve done!

Monthly Wrap-Up: November 2018

Hi, book fam!

Okay, I’ll be straight with you all. November may be my worst month of 2018, and I may be so glad it’s over. But my thrill of December starting just makes me warm up. As some of you know, I struggled with some personal problems like family stress and someone stealing my identity. But I can’t let these negative sway my love of Christmas.

So for my monthly goal, I’m catching up on my blog and up my blogger friends, reach out like before, and be more involved in our great community. And frankly, I’m a little stoked for Blogmas (or some form of it, because blogging every day sounds daunting).

Who’s ready for another monthly wrap-up post? Let’s get to it then.

Top Ten Tuesday | Book Covers with My New Favourite Colour

 

Colour me purple. I could have gone the safe way by choosing blue or burgundy, which are my favourite colours. Nah. That just seems too boring. So for my choices for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, I pick a colour I’m starting to like. You can already guess which one. I wasn’t a huge fan of it, but I’ve grown to love it though.

Winter by Marissa Meyer

I recently bought this book since I’ve finally got into this series. Yes, I’m horrible with my TBR list. The first book I read by Marissa is Renegades. It’s a good read, but I must prefer Lunar Chronicles. She’s becoming one of my new favourite authors.

 

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

Can I fangirl more over this cover? Probably not. But I can certainly try. It sold me. This year, I hope to get more diverse books onto my reading list, and this tops the lists. I eagerly await its release!

 

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling

Ugh, this book. It broke me in two, and I still don’t know if I’ve healed from it. Honestly, I haven’t read all the books even though I have them all waiting on my shelf.

 

Honor among Thieves by Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre

I’ve seen this book floating around the blogosphere lately. And this book was singing to me when I decided to go on a sci-fi haul. Give me a conflicted anti-hero female lead, sentient alien spaceships, and a great cover, and you’ve got me hooked. I can’t wait to read this.

 

Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne

Wait, you’re telling me I missed a Jane Eyre retelling set in space?! Yes, I regret everything right now. Well then, I’ve just found a new sci-fi read. 😉

 

Smoke in the Sun by Renée Ahdieh

Why must this be the last book? WHY?! I adore the characters, lush storyline, and culture. But I’m worried I have too high expectations for this sequel. I don’t want my babies to get hurt, but I just see heartache on the horizon. Are you looking forward to Smoke in the Sun?
