Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Most Anticipated Books for the Second Half of 2017.

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 Books for the Second Half of 2017.

There were so many amazing, and highly anticipated, books released during the first half of 2017 that I focused too much on those and haven’t paid a lot of attention to what’s being released throughout the second half of the year. Unsurprisingly there are a lot of books, again highly anticipated, being released throughout the second half of the year.

No I’m not suddenly Australian, and I haven’t moved halfway across the world since my last blog post either, but I was deemed an “honorary” Australian when I was tagged so for this one day consider me a citizen of Australia. I was tagged by Lauren at Wonderless Reviews. Thanks so much for the tag Lauren, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Five Authors I’ve Met Top Five Authors I Want to Meet

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 Five Authors I’ve Met Top Five Authors I Want to Meet.

Most authors I’ve met were at YALC last year, and I am looking forwards to going again this year and meeting even more. You never know some of the authors on the second half of my list this week may be attending. In the end though it feels like the ten authors in this list (five of whom I still want to meet) aren’t enough to fully capture how many authors I still want to meet one day.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Wish Had …

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 Wish Had …

A Sequel

When it comes to the last book in a series, or even just amazing standalone novels, I always have a problem accepting that there’s no more left. No more new adventures, no more from my favourite characters, and no more going back to this amazing world I discovered unless I re-read the book. So when it came to this week’s Top Ten Tuesday themed free-for-all I thought it was a perfect opportunity to talk about the books I’d love to see more of.

This isn’t going to be a case of me talking about the books I loved that I want to see more of just because they’re favourites of mine. Most of these are books where I felt the ending was left open enough that there is the potential for a sequel, maybe, one day in the future if I keep my fingers crossed.

If you haven’t read any of these books be warned there are potential spoilers ahead.

2016 End of Year Survey

Happy New Year everyone! Here’s hoping you all have an amazing 2017. To celebrate the new year and look back at my reading journey throughout 2016 I decided to take part in the End of Year Survey created and hosted by Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner.

2016-end-of-year-survey

Last year I saw a couple of bloggers on WordPress taking part in this. It looked like such a fun way to look back over the year but as I’d already posted an end of year review for 2015 I didn’t see the point in doing another one. Still I remember the survey and now we’ve reached the end of 2016 I’ve taken the opportunity to take part in it myself.

Netflix and Books Tag

There are so many TV programs I love, and even more that are on my to-watch list, however I don’t actually have Netflix myself. Still I figured you don’t need to have Netflix to take part in this tag! I was tagged by Reg at She Latitude. Thanks so much for the tag Reg, I had a lot of fun answering these questions and I hope you enjoyed reading them as much. Everyone should definitely check out Reg’s original post and her blog as well while you’re there. Reg is such an amazing person, and she writes some brilliant reviews, among other posts.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Best Books 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 Best Books of 2016.

Picking only the top ten best books I’ve read throughout 2016 was so hard. There were so many amazing ones I read across quite a few genres this year, and so many amazing new authors I discovered as well, that I wanted to feature them all. In the end I managed to narrow it down to the top ten but honestly there are so many more; this could have easily been a top twenty list, or even a top thirty.

Problematic Faves Tag

This is a tag that was created by Izzi over at Ravenclaw Book Club to celebrate reaching 100 followers. I was thrilled to be tagged in this one, although it’s taken me a while to get around to it.

Problematic Fave; (Noun) A favourite person (usually a character) who has problematic views and opinions.

Some of these questions were easier for me to answer than others; some I had an answer for as soon as I read it whereas others were a little harder and I had to scan my bookshelves thinking back on the characters and relationships in each.

Once again I was tagged by Izzi at Ravenclaw Book Club. Thank you so much for the tag Izzi; everyone else should definitely check out her original post and while you’re there her blog as well.
