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.

Mid Year Freak Out Tag

The name of a tag has never felt more appropriate before, because it is the middle of the year and I’m freaking out. Where has the first half of 2018 gone? Does anyone know because I feel like not long ago I was writing my post wrapping up 2017. Before I know it I’ll be preparing my post to wrap up 2018. I was tagged by The Orangutan Librarian. Thanks for the tag, I had a lot of fun answering the questions for this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books that Awaken the Travel Bug In Me

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 that Awaken the Travel Bug In Me.

Next to reading and blogging travel is definitely one of the great loves of my life, in fact if it was free to travel I’d never come home, and it doesn’t take much for a book to make me want to drop everything and hop on a plane somewhere far away. There are a lot of books that have inspired me to travel, and I don’t think a lot of these will come a massive surprise because I know I’ve spoke about them all before.

The Harry Potter Book Tag

There’s never a bad time for Harry Potter, and there’s no such thing as too much Harry Potter either so although I have been taken part in The Harry Potter Book Tag before I loved being able to take part again. I was tagged by Laura at The Book Corps. Thanks for the tag Laura, I had a lot of fun answering the questions for this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Plan to Re-Read this Year

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 I Decided to DNF too Quickly.

I mentioned this in a previous Top Ten Tuesday post I took part in; I rarely DNF books, and I certainly haven’t DNF-ed enough of them to come up with ten for this week’s theme. Instead for this week I decided to go in the opposite direction, and instead of talking about the books I hated enough to DNF I’m talking about the books I loved enough to re-read.

Is there any better way of getting to know someone than have them answer 100 questions on everything about themselves, their life, and their beliefs? I don’t think so, so that’s what you have from me today. I was tagged by Kate at Reading Through Infinity. Thanks for the tag Kate, I had a lot of fun answering the questions for this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Bookish Worlds I’d Never Want to Live In

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 Worlds I’d Never Want to Live In.

I love to travel, and I read a lot of fantasy books with incredible world-building; but for every couple of worlds I’d give anything to see with my own eyes there’s always one I’d never want to find myself in. I’d kill to visit Le Cirque des Rêves one night, or explore Red London for a day, but I know I wouldn’t survive five minutes as a tribute in the Hunger Games.
