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.

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.

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.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Favourite Books of 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 Favourite Books of 2017.

Choosing my top reads of this year was possibly one of the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make, and I didn’t even take the whole year into account. Back in June one of the Top Ten Tuesday themes was ‘Top Ten of the Best Books I’ve Read So Far in 2017’, so for this Top Ten Tuesday post I looked at the books I read between July and now. I had to make some cruel cuts, and incredible books like All the Crooked Saints, Clockwork Princess and Forest of a Thousand Lanterns were taken off my list to make way for the below ten.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Bookish Settings I’d Love to Visit

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 Bookish Settings I’d Love to Visit.

This, more than any other topic The Broke and the Bookish have ever done, was made for me. I read fantasy for the world building; for the incredible and fantastical worlds that I can only explore through the writing. If there is one thing I wish more than anything else it’s that I had the power to visit bookish worlds because there are so many places I’d love to visit. Until that becomes a reality, I’ll settle for reading about them.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books on my Winter 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 Winter TBR List.

Now that I’ve gotten through more of the ARCs I have that need to be read and reviewed for the new year I’m back to tackling my (humungous) TBR list. I had a mid-year to-read goal, and by now it’s pretty safe to say I’ve kind of failed at managing it, but hopefully the ten books listed below will be more manageable for me to get through than the fifty odd that were part of my mid-year to-read goal.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I’m Thankful For

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 Thankful For.

When it comes down to it there are plenty of books I’m thankful for, in fact you could say I’m thankful for every book out there because I love reading, but the ones below are the ones that have the most fond memories attached to them. Some of them are likely cliché picks for this topic, and most of them are books I haven’t stopped talking about since I started blogging, but I feel that’s almost expected.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Reading Recommendations for my Cousin Through the Years

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 Want my Future Children to Read.

While this could change at the moment I don’t see myself having children. However one of my younger cousins has developed an all-consuming love of Harry Potter, the series that kick-started my obsession with reading, so for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic I’ve done a list of series, author and book recommendations for her for once she’s ready to move on from Harry Potter.
