Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books on My Summer 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 a summer reads freebie, so I picked Top Ten Books on My Summer TBR List.

Once summer comes around I start reading the contemporaries on my TBR list. After all there’s nothing better than sitting on the beach or in my garden, the sun shining, with a good book filled with great characters, fluffy romances, and travel all over the world. There are so many YA contemporaries on my to-read list, and even more being released it was hard to choose just ten.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Mother/Child Relationships in YA Books

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 Mother’s Day related freebie, so I picked Top Ten Mother/Child Relationships in YA Books.

I love seeing strong familial relationships in books, unfortunately in fantasy stories that’s an aspect that seems to be missing. I guess it’s hard to risk your life saving the world when you have a loving family at home worrying for you. Not all of the mother/child relationships I featured this week are happy, loving and perfect, but they were all amazingly written.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Fairytales I’d Love to See Retold More

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 Things on my Reading Wishlist.

I gave this week’s theme a little bit of a twist, and instead of Top Ten Things on my Reading Wishlist I went for Top Ten Fairytales I’d Love to See Retold More. I am a huge fan of fairytale retellings, but I’ve noticed it seems to be the most popular ones that are retold over and over again, there are so many I’d love to see given the same treatment and this gives me a chance to showcase them.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Five Cover Changes I Loved and Top Five Cover Changes I Didn’t Like

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 cover theme freebie, so I picked Top Five Cover Changes I Loved and Top Five Cover Changes I Didn’t Like.

Everyone has an opinion on cover changes, and no matter whether you love the new design or prefer the old one everyone (likely) agrees that there is nothing more annoying than when a series changes covers halfway through. For this week’s free cover themed pick I thought it was the perfect time to talk about some of the best and worst (in my opinion) cover changes, all halfway through a series.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Things that Will Make me Instantly Not Want to Read a Book

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 Things that Will Make me Instantly Not Want to Read a Book.

For last week’s Top Ten Tuesday post I talked about what things instantly make me add books to my to-read list, so it makes sense that this week’s topic is the opposite. You may notice a lot of these are the same, because if there is a cover design I love that makes me want to pick up a book ASAP you can believe there have been cover designs that have done the opposite and put me off books.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Things that Will Make me Instantly Want to Read a Book

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 Things that Will Make me Instantly Want to Read a Book.

I add a lot of books to my to-read list, I think I’m safe in saying we all do because we’re all well aware of the never ending TBR list issues, but what is it that makes me add a book I’ve just discovered onto my to-read list? There are a lot of things; each book has made it onto my to-read list for a different reason but there are definitely the main ones, number one normally being the cover.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten of the Most Unique Books I’ve Read

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 of the Most Unique Books I’ve Read.

For me, what makes a book unique is when it goes in a completely different direction to what I assumed it would when I read the blurb. We’ve all had books like that; where the blurb only reveals a small part of the plot, smaller than it normally would, so you go in with few expectations only for them to be blown out of the water by the story the author has written instead.

Top Ten Tuesday: Must Have Merchandise for Every Harry Potter Fan

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 fandom freebie, so I picked Must Have Merchandise for Every Harry Potter Fan.

I don’t really belong to many fandoms, and while I could have used this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic to talk more about my favourite books I feel I do that more than enough. By now everyone knows how much I love certain series and there’s only so much I can say about them without repeating myself. So I went back to the first fandom I belonged to, and the one I am still in now.

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.
