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.

The Pokémon Go Tag

We’ll just pretend that the Pokémon Go craze isn’t over and that I’m not six or seven months late posting this tag.

Even when it was in its height I never got into Pokémon Go although two of my friends were obsessed with the game, and one of them still is. I guess when you nearly get into a car accident because of someone else playing the game when they should be focusing on the road it kind of loses its appeal for you. I was tagged by Grace at Kimmie.gg. Thanks so much for the tag Grace, I had a lot of fun answering these questions and I hope you enjoyed reading my answers as much.

  • Other than mentioning the creator of the tag, Aentee at Read at Midnight, there are none. Just have fun and feel free to use Aentee’s images.

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.

Three (More) Days Three (More) Quotes: Day 1

This has always been a favourite tag of mine so it’s great getting another chance to take part. This time though, instead of featuring quotes from favourite books of mine which is what I’ve done the last four times I was tagged, I’ve featured other quotes I loved. While one or two of them may be from books unfortunately they are not from any books I’ve yet to read.

Fun fact, this is most commonly misquoted as something Galileo said. Before taking part in this tag again I was among those who thought it was Galileo who said it, but a little bit of research soon corrected me of that assumption.

Waiting on Wednesday: Wild Beauty

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which shines a light on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.

I stopped posting the Waiting on Wednesday feature on my blog last November and I’m not going to be starting it up again, like I said back then two features a week is more than enough for me, but when I saw this book had a cover and blurb on Goodreads I couldn’t resist. This is a book by one of my favourite authors, from one of my favourite genres, and it has a beyond gorgeous cover.

This week my pick is;

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

There are so many books currently on my TBR list and all of them are books I’d like to get around to soon-ish, especially when you consider how long some of them have been on there. I’m normally not good at sticking to TBR lists given how I’m a mood reader, but this week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme I featured the books I definitely want to get around to ASAP, only time will tell whether I do or not.
