Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten TV Shows I Plan to Binge Watch

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 TV Shows I Plan to Binge Watch.

When it comes to TV shows (and movies as well but to a slightly lesser extent) my to-watch list is almost as long as my to-read list. The only problem is I can’t watch TV as quickly as I can read books, so my list keeps growing and growing and I never seem to make a dent in it. However there are so many shows on my radar, and these are the ten I will be getting around to sooner rather than later (I hope).

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Learnt Something From

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 a back to school/learning freebie, so I picked Top Ten Books I Learnt Something From.

It took me a while to come up with this back to school/learning freebie topic mostly because when it comes to the books I read most of them are fantasy stories; stories which keep me on the edge of my seat but which offer an escape from the real world. When they’re over that’s it, but every so often there’s a book I pick up which stays with me long after I’ve closed the last page and makes me want to learn more about the topics it’s discussed, and those are the books I’ve featured on this list.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump

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 to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump.

I’m lucky enough that I don’t tend to slump when it comes to reading. I think because I’m a mood reader I always pick up what book I want to read, and if that means I don’t pick up a book then that’s what I do. However in the past I have had some pretty epic slumps, and when it happens I reach for one of two kinds of books; light-hearted and humorous stories with a shippable romance, and YA contemporaries.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Favourite Books of the Year So Far

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.

Originally this week’s theme was Top Ten Favourite Book Blogs/Bookish Websites, but because I’ve talked a lot about fellow bloggers I love (spoiler alert; it’s pretty much everyone I’ve met in this book blogging community) and I’m not really active on other social media platforms I decided to go back to a topic I missed a few weeks ago (because I didn’t realise the week’s topic had changed from a TTT Throwback to something else until too late) and talk about my Top Ten Favourite Books of the Year So Far.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books You’d Mash Together

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 You’d Mash Together.

When I first saw this topic I thought it would be an easy one. I’ve read so many amazing books there are bound to be hundreds I could mash together to create one epic story, but as I started going through my Goodreads ‘read’ list I realised it was harder than I first thought. After all when it comes to all-time favourite books and series of mine, like The Night Circus and the Shades of Magic trilogy, how can they possible get any better?!

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype

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 Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype.

There are so many hyped up books out there, and sometimes when it comes to hype I can be my own worst enemy. I build up certain releases in my head so much and while, nine times out of ten, they’re even more amazing than I think they will be, there are some books which unfortunately end up disappointing me. But this week’s theme isn’t about those disappointing books, it’s about the amazing ones.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books with Sensory Reading Memories

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 with Sensory Reading Memories.

I’ve been reading for a long time; I picked up the Harry Potter series as a child, I picked up Twilight as a teenager, and I never really stopped picking up books. In all the years I’ve been reading there are some books that stick out so clearly in my mind, not so much because of the story or the writing but because of the memory attached to them. The topic this week is ‘Sensory Memories’, but I’ve chosen to feature my more sentimental memories when it comes to books.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Favourite Short Stories

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 Favourite Short Stories.

I don’t read a lot of short stories so when I first saw this week’s topic I thought I’d struggle to come up with a couple, let alone ten, books that I could feature. Then I looked through my Goodreads ‘read’ list and realised there were a lot of books that fit the theme; anthology collections, novellas from my favourite series, and even a book or two I managed to read in only a couple of hours.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Fairytale Retellings I’ve Read

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 was originally a TTT Throwback freebie and even though it was recently changed to Top Ten Books of 2018 (So Far) I’d already drafted this post, so I decided to stick with it.

It’s no secret I love fairytale retellings, I’ve read so many of them and I still have plenty more waiting on my TBR list, so when I saw this was a TTT topic way back before I started blogging there was only one option I was going to pick for this week’s throwback theme. I had to make some very hard cuts this week when choosing my top ten, but I’m confident these are my top ten favourite fairytale retellings.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books to Read by the Pool

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 to Read by the Pool.

This is my last post before I take a two and a half week break from blogging because I am travelling to Dubai and Mauritius on holiday. I think this is the perfect post to break on because, as well as being ‘Top Ten Books to Read by the Pool’, this is actually my summer holiday TBR list. All these books are sitting on my Kindle waiting for me to read them by the pool in Dubai or on the beach in Mauritius.
