Top Ten Books On My TBR For a Long Time

top ten tuesday 2--6-18 blog header

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week features a different theme or prompt for which you come up with a list of ten books or ideas. This week’s theme is books that have been on my TBR for the longest and I still haven’t read. I decided to tweak this just a little bit and turn it into books that have been on my TBR for a long time that I still haven’t read, but really want to read soon. One of my goals for this year is to read a lot of the books I own so I’m hoping that a lot of these books that I’ve had on my TBR for ages will finally be read. Let’s take a look at some of the books I want to read soon (finally).

As a quick side note, I’m not going to really give any explanation for why I’m including these books on this week’s list. The story is basically the same for all of them: I’ve been meaning to read them for quite awhile and am hoping to finally get to them soon.

Top Ten Books I Really Liked But Can’t Remember Much About

top ten tuesday 1-23-18 blog header

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl Each week features a different theme or prompt for which you come up with a list of ten books or ideas. This week’s theme is books I really liked but can’t remember much about. This is going to be SO EASY for me because I have a HORRIBLE memory when it comes to books I’ve read, hahaha. There are tons of books that I don’t remember anything about aside from “I loved it!” Lots of these are books that I read forever ago and want to reread now and see what I think of them. If there are any books here that you think should get priority, let me know! Before we finally get into my list, I’m just going to say that I’m not going to comment on my choices this week like I usually do because they’d pretty much all say the same thing: “I loved this but I don’t remember anything about it” hahaha Now, without further delay… let’s get into my list!

Top Ten Books I Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t Get To

top ten tuesday 1-9-18 blog header

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme or prompt for which you come up with a list of ten books or ideas. This week’s theme is top ten books we meant to read in 2017 but didn’t get to (but totally plan on reading in 2018). This list is SO EASY for me because there are soooo many books I intend to read right when they come out and then I just… never get to them. So this list will be a piece of cake.

Before I get into my list for this week, though, I just wanted to give a huge thank you to everyone at The Broke and the Bookish. This is the last week they will be hosting Top Ten Tuesday (going forward it will be hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) and I wanted to just say thank you for all of the time, energy, and effort they’ve put into TTT. So thank you!

Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read in 2017

top ten tuesday 1-2-18 blog header

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme or prompt for which you come up with a list of ten books or ideas. This week’s theme is top ten new-to-me authors that I read for the first time in 2017. I decided to only include authors who have published books prior to 2017, as I’m planning on doing a list of my favorite 2017 debuts sometime this month and didn’t want to have too much overlap between the two posts. I discovered a lot of great authors throughout the year, so this really wasn’t difficult. 🙂

Links will take you to the authors’ Goodreads pages.

top ten tuesday 12-26-17 blog header

HELLO EVERYONE, YES I AM STILL ALIVE!!!

But I’m back now and hoping to get back to a regular schedule! I’m really excited about today’s post because it’s one of my favorite topics: upcoming releases I’m excited for!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme or prompt for which you come up with a list of ten books or ideas.

Crash and Burn: 2017’s Most Disappointing Reads | Hype or Like Friday

hype or like friday 12-15-17 blog header

Today I’m sharing another Hype or Like Friday post; this time all about some of the most disappointing books of 2017. I’ve decided not to talk only about 2017 releases, but about any books that I read during 2017 and found disappointing.

If you’re not sure what Hype or Like Friday is, check out the Goodreads group here. The short version: each month has a different theme and a popular book. Every Friday there’s a post for group members to post and then at the end of the month, everyone reviews the book and says whether or not it deserves the hype. You don’t necessarily have to read/review the book of the month either – I’m not this month! But it gives a little something extra to talk about with other group members if you do. 🙂

Anyway, I’m rambling too much. Let’s get into the post!
