Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Bookish OTPs

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 Book Boyfriends/Girlfriends.

I don’t have book boyfriends/girlfriends, so instead I’ve adapted the theme a little this week and I’m going to talk about ten of my favourite OTPs.

Now this was a topic I did for one of the Freebie Weeks back in January, so I needed to be careful not to feature the same couples twice. I have plenty of OTPs and favourite couples so this wasn’t an issue, but if there are any characters you expected to see on my list this week (namely two characters from my favourite V.E. Schwab trilogy) that aren’t here, it’s because I’ve already featured them back in January.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Struggled to Get into but Ended up Loving

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 Struggled to Get into but Ended up Loving.

When it comes down to it there are two main reasons why I struggle to get into certain books; one is that what I’ve picked up isn’t something I’m in the mood to read, and two is that the world building is so heavy it takes me a while to get past that and into the story. These books below are a mixture of both reasons, with a few extra ones added in.

ARC Review: A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares

A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares


Title: A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares

Author: Krystal Sutherland

Series: N/A

Publisher: Hot Key Books

Release Date: September 5th 2017

Rating:

Five Stars

From the author of Our Chemical Hearts comes the hilarious, reality-bending tale of two outsiders facing their greatest fears about life and love one debilitating phobia at a time.

Ever since Esther Solar’s grandfather was cursed by Death, everyone in her family has been doomed to suffer one great fear in their lifetime. Esther’s father is agoraphobic and hasn’t left the basement in six years, her twin brother can t be in the dark without a light on, and her mother is terrified of bad luck.

The Solars are consumed by their fears and, according to the legend of the curse, destined to die from them.

Esther doesn’t know what her great fear is yet (nor does she want to), a feat achieved by avoiding pretty much everything. Elevators, small spaces, and crowds are all off-limits. So are haircuts, spiders, dolls, mirrors and three dozen other phobias she keeps a record of in her semi-definitive list of worst nightmares.

Then Esther is pickpocketed by Jonah Smallwood, an old elementary school classmate. Along with her phone, money and a fruit roll-up she d been saving, Jonah also steals her list of fears. Despite the theft, Esther and Jonah become friends, and he sets a challenge for them: in an effort to break the curse that has crippled her family, they will meet every Sunday of senior year to work their way through the list, facing one terrifying fear at a time, including one that Esther hadn’t counted on: love.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Recommendations for …

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 Recommendations for …

Rather than do recommendations for a specific genre or group of people, like the prompt suggested and like I have in the past, I’m doing recommendations based on books. It’s a ‘if you liked this book check out these books’ Top Ten Tuesday post.

Top Ten Tuesday has been on hiatus for a month and a half, and while some people were still taking part in the weekly feature during that time I was not one of them, so it’s nice to have some prompts again to post my top ten on a Tuesday.
