Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten 2016 Releases I Meant to Read but Didn’t Get to (but Totally Plan to)

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 2016 Releases I Meant to Read but Didn’t Get to (but Totally Plan to).

I got through some amazing books in 2016, there were a lot of new favourites I could have picked from for my top read of 2016, but even more than that there were so many books I meant to but didn’t get around to released last year. I’d like to say I’ll get around to most of the books on this list at some point during 2017 but then again there are books on my to-read list from 2015 and before then so really who knows when I’ll pick these books up.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Want to Read Before the End of the 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. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I’ve Added To My TBR List Lately.

Instead, however, mainly because my to-read list is a mess, I decided to feature the books I want to read before the end of the year. With less than two months left I’m not sure I’ll get around to all of these but I can at least make a decent start. Besides if I don’t manage to get through all of them before the end of 2016 then they’ll be the very first books on my TBR list for 2017.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books that are Perfect Reads for Halloween

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 Halloween freebie, so I picked Top Ten Books that are Perfect Reads for Halloween.

Halloween have never been a big deal in England. I was eighteen the first time I went trick-or-treating, and it was babysitting my friends little cousins, in fact the only part of Halloween I get excited for are The Simpson Treehouse of horror episodes and the Brooklyn Nine-Nine Halloween Heist episodes. However I love reading and with Halloween coming up, and with this week’s TTT topic being a Halloween themed free-for-all, I decided to showcase some of the best creepy and dark books I’ve read so far as well as a few still on my to-read list.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I’ve Had on my TBR List Since Before I Started Blogging

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’ve Had on my TBR List Since Before I Started Blogging.

My to-read list is massive. Even before I started blogging there were books on there I added years previously which I still hadn’t gotten around to.

Then I joined WordPress, saw all the amazing five-star glowing reviews people were writing, and my to-read list just kept growing and growing. Going back for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme and looking at all the books I added way back when before I started my blog I was surprised by how many I’d forgotten were on there, and how many I doubt I’ll ever get around to picking up now.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of 2016

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 Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of 2016.

There are so many amazing books being released during the second half of this year. Some are books that I’ve been waiting for for ages, others are sequels that I’ve wanted to get my hands on ever since finishing the latest released book in the series, and others are books that I’ve only just discovered but am no less excited for. I have a feeling that some of these upcoming releases I’ve featured for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday are going to become all-time favourites of mine.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books Every … Should 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. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books Every … Should Read.

Mythology Fan.

It took me a while to come up with my picks for this week. My first thought was fantasy, but I feel like I’ve kind of done that already a few weeks ago, my second thought was fairytale retellings, which I love but once again I’ve already done as a Top Ten Tuesday theme. Then I finally hit on mythology books. I love reading any I can get my hands on, they’re like another version of fairytales which I adore. I will read any I can find; books inspired by Greek and Egyptian mythology, books about gods and angels.

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.
