I’ve been blogging for nearly four years now, and in those four years so much has happened. I’ve refreshed my blog design a couple of times, expanded the range of posts I publish, been inspired to start writing again and grown as a writer. Today though I’m pushing all of that to one side and taking a trip down memory lane back to November 2015 when Reading Every Night was born.
I was tagged by Marie at Drizzle and Hurricane Books. Thanks so much for the tag Marie, it was a lot of fun (if a little cringe-y at times) going back and looking at my various book blogging firsts.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature that was created by The Broke and the Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Born from a love of lists and a love of books each week there’s a new topic for bloggers to list their ‘top ten’.
Page to Screen Freebie: Five Adaptations I Still Need to See and Five I’d Love to See
Adaptations can either be hit or miss, but lately there seem to be a lot more hits than misses (or maybe I’ve just learnt to stop judging the films too harshly and accept there will be differences to the source material). I am seriously behind on the TV shows and films I need to watch, my to-watch list is almost as long as my to-read list, so for this week’s topic I’ve picked five adaptations I still need to watch and five books I’d love to see adapted one day (because let’s face it we all want to see our favourite books on the big screen).

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 Most Anticipated Releases for the First Half of 2019.
One of the best things about the start of a new year is all the amazing books that are due to be released, and there are plenty in 2019. Already a couple of my most anticipated reads have come out, The Wicked King and In an Absent Dream, but there are still so many still to be released in the first half of the year. It made coming up with just ten for this list impossible, so I included some honourable mentions too.

My to-read list is a mixture of books already released that I want to read, books still to be released that I can’t wait for, and books I loved that I want to re-read. Granted it’s more the former two than the latter one, but I think we all have books on our TBR lists which are re-reads and which probably keep getting passed over in favour of books we haven’t already read.
This year I made a resolution to re-read more of my old favourites, books I’ve been saying I want to re-read for years, and honestly it’s made me wonder why I haven’t made it an aim to do more re-reading before. (That’s kind of a lie, I know why and it’s because of all the shiny new releases I’ve been swayed by).

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 freebie, so I picked Looking Back at My 2018 Resolutions.
Way back in January at the start of this year one of the Top Ten Tuesday topics was on bookish resolutions for the year. Despite not being great at setting and keeping resolutions I came up with ten, so now the year is nearly over I’m going to look back and see how many I can cross off my list. If I’ve managed to cross off more than half then it’s been a successful year for 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 a thanksgiving freebie, so I picked Top Ten Books I’m Thankful I was able to Discover through Blogging.
(I will admit a lot of my time thinking about this post was working out how to write the title so it was concise while still getting across my choice of topic for this week).
I’ve always loved reading, but ever since I started blogging there have been so many incredible books added to my TBR list because of all the glowing, five-star reviews I see. Maybe if I hadn’t started blogging some of these are books I still would have picked up eventually, but there are a few I know I never would have read if it hadn’t been for this blog, and the community.

Next week is the final of The Great British Bake Off. I only started watching this show last year but now I’m hooked, and of course it seemed like the perfect time to take part in this tag (although if I was really organised I would have posted it back when the first episode aired. Oh well). 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 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 villains freebie, so I picked Top Ten Villains I Loved More Than or as Much as the Heroes.
Every story needs a good villain, and they need to be as well written as the heroes they go toe-to-toe with. As much as I always root for the heroes of every book I read there are times when I can’t help but be more fascinated with the villain, so for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday themed free pick I decided to focus on those villains; characters I loved the most and who I’d love to learn more about.

When the Pingback for this tag first appeared in my notifications I thought it was a strange and possibly passive aggressive insult, then I realised it was a tag and had to laugh at how ridiculous I was being. I was tagged by Anny at The Mystique Reader. Thanks so much for the tag Anny, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.
