Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books You’d Mash Together

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 You’d Mash Together.

When I first saw this topic I thought it would be an easy one. I’ve read so many amazing books there are bound to be hundreds I could mash together to create one epic story, but as I started going through my Goodreads ‘read’ list I realised it was harder than I first thought. After all when it comes to all-time favourite books and series of mine, like The Night Circus and the Shades of Magic trilogy, how can they possible get any better?!

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype

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 Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype.

There are so many hyped up books out there, and sometimes when it comes to hype I can be my own worst enemy. I build up certain releases in my head so much and while, nine times out of ten, they’re even more amazing than I think they will be, there are some books which unfortunately end up disappointing me. But this week’s theme isn’t about those disappointing books, it’s about the amazing ones.

The #NotAll Book Tag

When I talk about books I tend to talk in absolutes; we love all the books in our favourite genre and prefer the book to the adaptation, but there’s an exception to every rule and in this tag I get to talk about those exceptions. 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.

No rules, just link back to the creator; The Orangutan Librarian.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books with Sensory Reading Memories

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 with Sensory Reading Memories.

I’ve been reading for a long time; I picked up the Harry Potter series as a child, I picked up Twilight as a teenager, and I never really stopped picking up books. In all the years I’ve been reading there are some books that stick out so clearly in my mind, not so much because of the story or the writing but because of the memory attached to them. The topic this week is ‘Sensory Memories’, but I’ve chosen to feature my more sentimental memories when it comes to books.

Listicle Tag

I love books and I love making lists, so taking part in the Listicle tag is an excuse to combine two of my favourite things into one post. Also the prompt left adds a third favourite thing of mine to the mix. I was tagged by Meghan at Meghan’s Whimsical Explorations & Reviews. Thanks so much for the tag Meghan, I had a lot of fun with this one.

Listicle Tag

Rules:

  • Create your own listicle tag, using the prompt from the person who tagged you.
  • Tag the creator of the post, not-so-modern-girl, so that I can read all your brilliant posts and see how the joy of listicles is being spread.
  • Nominate as many people as you want!

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.

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.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Kick-Ass Names for Kick-Ass Characters

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 Kick-Ass Names for Kick-Ass Characters.

My favourite genre is fantasy, and as well as the names sometimes being hard to pronounce (I know there are a few I’m still pronouncing incorrectly) they’re also pretty kick-ass. Granted names don’t really have much to do with saving the world but an epic name just stands out more, and fantasy is full of epic names.
