Totally Should’ve Book Tag

I took part in this tag once before, nearly a year and a half ago actually, so it’s about time I took part in it again. No worries though, I made sure I had different answers for each of the questions. I was tagged by Azia at The Uncharted Word, Jacquie at Rattle the Stars, Melissa at Book Nerd Momo, and Anna at My Bookish Dream. Thanks so much for the tag everyone, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Bookish Resolutions

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 Bookish Resolutions.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the best when it comes to setting and keeping resolutions, similarly to setting a TBR list I’m just not good with long-reaching goals, so chances are most of these resolutions will be broken before January comes to an end. Still part of the fun of the new year is setting goals and seeing how long they stick. Maybe this year I’ll manage to make them last until December 2018.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Meant to Read in 2017 but Didn’t (but Definitely Will in 2018)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. 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 2017 but Didn’t (but Definitely Will in 2018).

It probably won’t come as a surprise to many people when I say that I am not good at TBR lists. I try my best but there are always two things that get in my way; one is that I’m a mood reader and the other is that I can never read as much as I’d like to because my day job and real life gets in the way. Still these books are at the top of my TBR list for 2018, and hopefully that means I will get around to them before we reach 2019.

No promises though.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2017

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. 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 Read in 2017.

I discovered more new-to-me authors last year than I thought. So many of them wrote amazing books that I fell in love with, and so many of them are new favourite authors of mine, that I couldn’t possibly list them all. So to make things easier I settled on five debut and five non-debut authors, and after taking out the ARCs I read that weren’t due to be released until 2018 my choices were much easier to make.

The Writer’s Tag

Now that I’m writing again – now that I’ve won NaNo 2017 and finished the first draft of my WIP – I’m making leaps and talking about my writing on my blog, and that means The Writer’s Tag is the perfect one for me to take part in. I was tagged by Sophie at Sophie’s Corner and Marie at Drizzle and Hurricane Books. Thanks so much both of you for the tag, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward to in 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. 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’m Looking Forward to in 2018.

When it comes down to it there are so many books I can’t wait for, and plenty of them I couldn’t feature because they don’t have titles or covers or blurbs yet; The Muse of Nightmares, the second Warcross book, the third Nevernight book. It’s looking like 2018 is going to be a great year for book releases, the only issue I’ll have is finding the time to read them all.

Christmas Cuisine Book Tag

Although I was tagged at the end of 2016 it hasn’t taken me a year to get around to the Christmas Cuisine Book Tag because there are so many tags in my queue, but because by the time I reached this one it was August. It makes zero sense to post a Christmas tag in August, so I’ve had to wait until December to take part in this one. I was tagged by Kirstie at Upside-Down Books. Thanks so much for the tag Kirstie, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Christmas Cuisine Book Tag

Rules:

  • Thank the person who tagged you with a virtual hug and happy thoughts (and pixie dust if you can find it.)
  • Mention the creator (Kirstie at Upside-Down Books)
  • Try to eat as many of the foods as you can whilst writing this.
  • Wear funky socks.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. 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 Hope Santa Brings.

In my opinion there’s no better Christmas present than books (except maybe money or vouchers to buy more books). That’s why, when my friends and my family ask me what I want for Christmas, I already have a list of books for them on hand. That’s also why when I post my December/January book haul it will be packed with books I either got for Christmas or brought with Christmas money.

Winter is Here Write Tag

I’ve taken part in plenty of tags answering the questions as myself, and even one answering the questions as my favourite book character, but I’ve never taken part in a tag answering the questions for my own characters so I’m very excited to get started on this one. I was tagged by Kat at Life and Other Disasters who also created this tag. Thanks so much for the tag Kat, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Winter is Here Write Tag

Rules:

  • Thank the person who tagged you but also link back to the original post!
  • Provide a short description of your WIP/story!

I’ve copied this from my NaNoWriMo update post which you can check out here for more info on my WIP. It follows six demigods and after a massacre that killed so many of their kind twenty five years ago they’re struggling with what it means when Astraea, one of those victims, comes back from the dead.

Astraea is searching for vengeance for the fifty-one other demigods killed with her. Ziva is searching for power. Elias loses himself in his curse as he tries to find a way to live with the guilt. Calix struggles to deal with the burden his father’s realm places on him. Theo just wants to help Calix, and Rhian just wants to be left alone and to survive.
