Book Scavenger Hunt Tag

This was such a fun tag to be able to complete. I’ve actually taken part in some scavenger hunts but never a bookshelf one so this was a unique experience for me. I wasn’t sure if I’d have any books that fit all the categories, and yes I did end up ‘cheating’ a little on one, but for the most part once I started looking I found a few I could have picked for each.

I was tagged by Izzi at Ravenclaw Book Club and Lauren at Wonderless Reviews. Thank you both so much for the tag; everyone else should definitely check out Izzi’s and Lauren’s original posts and while you’re there check out their blogs as well, you won’t regret it.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Really Love and Feel I Need to Re-Read Soon

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 Really Love and Feel I Need to Re-Read Soon.

I read a lot of books each year, and while there are some books I always re-read at least once a year there are others which I haven’t picked up in ages. Looking through my bookshelves and my Goodreads read list I discovered a lot of series which I loved the first time I read them but which I haven’t picked up since. These are probably my top ten favourite series that I haven’t read in over a year which are now high on my re-reads list.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Characters 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 Top Ten Characters I Didn’t Like.

There aren’t really any characters that I love whom everyone else seems to hate, and likewise there aren’t any characters I hate whom everyone else seems to love so I decided to highlight some of the characters I didn’t like. Some are character we’re supposed to hate, some just made bad decisions, and some I just didn’t click with. But there are a few who I thought had terrible character development and that actually the story would have worked better without them.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books To Read If You Are In The Mood 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 To Read If You Are In The Mood For…

Far Away and Fantastical Locations.

I love fantasy books, and there is nothing more I would love than to be able to travel to so many of the places that are described in so many of my favourite books. And honestly, who wouldn’t want to go to Hogwarts, I’m still upset over the fact that I never received my letter when I turned 11. So for this week’s Top Ten theme, books to read if you are in the mood for X, I chose Far Away and Fantastical Locations; and ten of my favourite books set in places I would kill to be able to travel to.

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

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 Valentine’s Day themed free pick this week so I chose; Top Ten Favourite YA Couples from Books I’ve Read in the Past Year.

I have a lot of OTP’s and it was a real challenge to narrow it down to just ten. Looking through my ‘Read’ list on Goodreads I saw so many amazing books, all full of amazing characters and amazing relationships; it was nearly impossible to choose. Some of my picks for this week are couples from standalone books or finished series so I know how their stories end, but there are a few from series where the last book is still to be released and I am desperate to find out how it ends, hoping for a happily ever after.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Fairytale Retellings I’ve Read and Want to 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. It was a free pick this week so I chose a Top Ten Tuesday topic from a few months ago; Top Ten Fairytale Retellings I’ve Read and Want to Read.

Fairytale retellings are one of my favourite sub genres of young adult books I have already read so many and there are more being released this year, and that have already been released, that I plan to start soon. I was gutted to have missed this Top Ten Tuesday topic when it first came around so I really enjoyed getting a second chance at it and picking out my top ten fairytale retelling books.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Best Books I Read In 2015

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 Best Books I Read In 2015.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday was definitely the hardest for me. I have read so many amazing books that I have truly loved this year that picking only ten was a real challenge. Some of my favourite series have ended on a real high note, Winter from the Lunar Chronicles, I have started new series which I cannot wait to continue, The Mine Order from the Bone Season series, and I have read some stand-alone novels which exceeded my highest expectations, Rainbow Rowell’s Carry On. Eventually I managed to narrow down my list but it was a close call on some of them.
