The Sunshine Blogger Award Part Two

I have some more nominations for the Sunshine Blogger Award sitting in my tags queue so it’s about time I got around to answering a few more of them. If you want to learn more about my general opinions on the worst books I’ve read, or the worst book-to-film adaptations I’ve seen, or get some recommendations for bookish blogs to check out then this is the post for you.

The Sunshine Blogger Award Part One

I do generally consider myself a ‘sunny’ person, especially considering this year I’ve been making more of an effort to prioritise my mental health, so maybe that’s why I got more nominations for The Sunshine Blogger Award. What I love about the Sunshine Blogger Award is that there are always different questions, so I can take part in this one as many times as I am nominated.

Valentine’s Day Write Tag

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone reading this post.

Can you believe I was tagged in this a whole year ago and I’m only just getting around to posting it now? (I ask like half the tags in my queue aren’t nearing a year old as well). Still this is a tag that can only be posted once a year, so at least I’m getting around to it now rather than waiting until Valentine’s Day 2020.

Valentine's Day Write Tag

I was tagged by Kat at Life and Other Disasters who also created this tag. I always love taking part in Kat’s Write tags, and this one was no exception, so thanks so much for tagging me Kat.

The Playlist Shuffle Tag

I’ve taken part in the Playlist Shuffle Tag a couple of times before, but I love music almost as much as I love reading so I’m not complaining about being tagged again.  I was tagged by Meghan at Meghan’s Whimsical Explorations & Reviews. Thanks so much for the tag Meghan, I had a lot of fun with this one.

The Playlist Shuffle Tag

Rules:

  • Put your music on shuffle and list the first 15 songs to play (no cheating!)
  • Tag 10 others to do it as well

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Most Recent Additions to my TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Most Recent Additions to my TBR List.

I recently did an overhaul of my Goodreads ‘to-read’ list and I got rid of all the books I was no longer interested in reading, but ended up adding even more (some of which I was surprised weren’t already on there, because I’ve been saying I want to read them for ages). The ten I picked for this week’s list aren’t necessarily the ten most recent books I added to my TBR list, but the ten most recent books I discovered and added (for me there is a difference).

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Meant to Read in 2018 but Didn’t Get To

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I Meant to Read in 2018 but Didn’t Get To.

At the start of every year I have the best intentions when it comes to all the books I’m going to try and read, but then by the end of every year I’ve always fallen short. One of the downfalls of being a mood reader is that I can never stick to TBR lists so I always get to January 1st and find there are a few books still on my TBR list that shouldn’t be there, and I feel like there were more from 2018 than there usually are.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten New-to-Me Authors I Discovered in 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten New-to-Me Authors I Discovered in 2018.

Every year when it comes to this Top Ten Tuesday topic I always find myself doubting I’ll be able to come up with ten new-to-me authors to feature; because of many series I love, favourite authors I keep going back, and old books I just have to re-read I don’t dedicate enough time to discovering new authors out there. Maybe it’ll end up being one of my resolutions for this year, to make a conscious effort to discover more new authors.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2019

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2019.

One of the best things about the start of a new year is all the amazing books that are due to be released, and there are plenty in 2019. Already a couple of my most anticipated reads have come out, The Wicked King and In an Absent Dream, but there are still so many still to be released in the first half of the year. It made coming up with just ten for this list impossible, so I included some honourable mentions too.
