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.

“Mystery Blogger Award” is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.
I got a fair few nominations for The Mystery Blogger Award so I have done this tag in two parts. If you nominated me for this award and don’t see your questions here they’ll be in part two, along with my nominations. I was tagged by Lauren at Wonderless Reviews, Katherine at Fabled Haven, and Marie at Drizzle and Hurricane Books. Thanks so much for the tag everyone, I had a lot of fun with this one.
- Put the award logo/image on your blog.
- List the rules.
- Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
- Mention the creator of the award and provide a link to their blog as well.
- Tell your readers three things about yourself.
- Answer questions of nominator.
- Nominate 10-20 people.
- Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question.
- Share your link to your best post(s).
This is such a fun and unique idea for a tag. I chose nine books at random and, flicking through the pages, picked the first character name I saw. It was very easy to decide who to cliff, harder to decide who to kiss and who to marry. I was tagged by Nicole at Sorry I’m Booked. Thanks so much for the tag Nicole, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.
- Put names of characters, written on separate pieces of papers, in an empty jar or a pen holder.
- Shake the jar.
- Pull out three pieces of paper in each round and tell us which character you would kiss, marry, or cliff!

Unlike my last fall inspired tag this one hasn’t been sitting in my queue for a whole year, and instead of leaving it to sit in my queue until next fall I’ve moved it up my list. After all we’re currently mid-way through fall so it’s the perfect time to post this. I was tagged by Lilly at Lair of Books. Thanks so much for the tag Lilly, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.
- Please link back to Bionic Book Worm, as the creator of this tag. She wants to see your answers.
- Use the graphics—if you want.
- Have fun!

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 that Feature … Characters.
The Best Villainous/Morally Grey
Everyone loves villains, there’s a whole anthology devoted to them now. When I saw this week’s open prompt the first thing that came to mind was villainous characters, or more specifically morally grey characters who could never be called heroes but are just out for themselves and make no apologies for what they need to do to achieve their goal. There are some brilliant ones in the books I’ve read, and this is my chance to feature my top ten.

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 back to school freebie, so I picked Top Ten Books I’d Set as Part of my (Fictional) School Syllabus.
I didn’t hate high school when I was there so many years ago now, but what I did hate was being forced to pick up books I had no interest in (Julius Caesar anyone?). If I was in charge we would have read pretty much anything else. When I thought of this week’s school-themed freebie the first idea that came to me was setting a syllabus for my own fictional school, so that’s what I did.

Pretty book covers are always going to be a weakness of mine, which I feel most people are well aware of now. The phase ‘never judge a book by its cover’ has never really applied to me and I’ve only discovered a few favourite books of mine after seeing how pretty the cover was. I was tagged by Jacquie at Rattle the Stars. Thanks so much for the tag Jacquie, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.
- It must be the dominant colour of the cover not the spine!
- If you do not own a book of a certain colour, just choose one that has the colour on it somewhere.
- It has to be a book you own and/or has to be the exact edition you read (e.g. there are two different covers for Me Before You, you would choose the one you read).
- Tag some people to do it! Whether they be Bloggers, Bookstagrammers or BookTubers.

Forget everything I’ve ever said before about my dream job, because Ruler of Books is now it. If only this was a real life job I could actually be paid for. This tag was originally created by Ariel Bissett, and I was tagged by Vivian at Inked in Pages and Anna at My Bookish Dream. Thanks so much both of you for the tag, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.
