Top Ten Tuesday: Top Five Authors I’ve Met Top Five Authors I Want to Meet

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 Five Authors I’ve Met Top Five Authors I Want to Meet.

Most authors I’ve met were at YALC last year, and I am looking forwards to going again this year and meeting even more. You never know some of the authors on the second half of my list this week may be attending. In the end though it feels like the ten authors in this list (five of whom I still want to meet) aren’t enough to fully capture how many authors I still want to meet one day.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books You’ll Stay up All Night Reading so You Can Finish Them in One Go

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 a read in one sitting freebie, so I picked Top Ten Books You’ll Stay up All Night Reading so You Can Finish Them in One Go.

My blog’s name is Reading Every Night so I guess this felt like an appropriate pick for this week’s themed free-for-all. Besides we’ve all had those books we just couldn’t put down. You keep telling yourself it’ll be ‘just one more chapter’ but before you know it it’s four in the morning, you’ve finished your book, and haven’t been to sleep yet despite needing to get up for work in two hours.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR List

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 on my Spring TBR List.

There are so many books currently on my TBR list and all of them are books I’d like to get around to soon-ish, especially when you consider how long some of them have been on there. I’m normally not good at sticking to TBR lists given how I’m a mood reader, but this week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme I featured the books I definitely want to get around to ASAP, only time will tell whether I do or not.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Loved Less/More Than I Thought I Would

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 Loved Less/More Than I Thought I Would.

A lot of the time I read books I have been recommended by other bloggers, so I tend to love them as much as I expect or a little bit more. A lot of the time when I say I enjoy books more than I thought I already knew I was going to love them I just ended up enjoying them that little bit more. The books I picked for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme are books I was genuinely surprised by; five in a good way and five in a bad way.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Favourite YA Couples from Books I’ve Read in the Past Year Part Two

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 an all about romance freebie, so I picked Top Ten Favourite YA Couples from Books I’ve Read in the Past Year Part Two.

This time last year there was a Valentine’s Day themed freebie for Top Ten Tuesday week, so I chose to feature my top ten favourite couples from YA books. This year I thought it would be fun to go back and choose some new books I’ve read within the past year which feature my new OTP’s. After reading Crooked Kingdom and A Court of Mist and Fury, among others, I have plenty of more OTP’s from my new favourite books I need to talk about more.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Wish Had …

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 Wish Had …

A Sequel

When it comes to the last book in a series, or even just amazing standalone novels, I always have a problem accepting that there’s no more left. No more new adventures, no more from my favourite characters, and no more going back to this amazing world I discovered unless I re-read the book. So when it came to this week’s Top Ten Tuesday themed free-for-all I thought it was a perfect opportunity to talk about the books I’d love to see more of.

This isn’t going to be a case of me talking about the books I loved that I want to see more of just because they’re favourites of mine. Most of these are books where I felt the ending was left open enough that there is the potential for a sequel, maybe, one day in the future if I keep my fingers crossed.

If you haven’t read any of these books be warned there are potential spoilers ahead.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Favourite YA Book Covers; UK Edition Vs. US Edition

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 an all about visuals freebie, and while it was supposed to be about graphic novels I haven’t read nearly enough to make a list so I picked Top Ten Favourite YA Book Covers; UK Edition Vs. US Edition instead.

For reasons, unbeknownst to most of us, sometimes there are different covers for the UK edition and the US edition of the same book. While with most of the books I own I have been more than happy with the UK cover there are still a few where I’ve looked on at the copies people in the US have brought and gotten very jealous. There have even been a couple of very rare occasions where I’ve gone onto the US Amazon site and paid the extra shipping just to get the US covers, but that’s very rare.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Bookish Blogging Goals for 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. It was a free pick this week so I chose; Top Ten Bookish Blogging Goals for 2017.

top-ten-tuesday-55

This time last year(ish) one of the Top Ten Tuesday topics I took part in was Top Ten Resolutions I Have for 2016, so for this week’s free pick I thought it would be interesting to go back and see what resolutions I managed to keep, what ones I broke, and what ones I can work towards for 2017. I’ve never been good at keeping resolutions, most of the time I end up breaking them before January is halfway done, which is why I’ve decided to set goals rather than resolutions. That way maybe I can trick myself to keeping more this year than I did last.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Underrated Books I’ve Read or Added to my TBR List in the Past Year or So

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 Underrated Books I’ve Read or Added to my TBR List in the Past Year or So.

Mid-way through 2016 a previous Top Ten Tuesday theme I took part in was Top Ten Books I Enjoyed with Less Than 2000 Ratings on Goodreads, so when I saw this week’s theme I decided to carry on from that one almost. I picked five books I read and enjoyed with under, or around about, 2000 ratings on Goodreads as well as a few books which I still have on my to-read list. In the end there were a couple of picks that made it on my list this week that I was really surprised to see.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten 2016 Releases I Meant to Read but Didn’t Get to (but Totally Plan to)

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 2016 Releases I Meant to Read but Didn’t Get to (but Totally Plan to).

I got through some amazing books in 2016, there were a lot of new favourites I could have picked from for my top read of 2016, but even more than that there were so many books I meant to but didn’t get around to released last year. I’d like to say I’ll get around to most of the books on this list at some point during 2017 but then again there are books on my to-read list from 2015 and before then so really who knows when I’ll pick these books up.
