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 on my Fall TBR List.
There are plenty of books on my Fall TBR list; at the end of July I made a mid-year resolution to try and get through all the books I owned but still hadn’t read. There are a lot and I know I’m not going to read them all, especially considering there are so many incredible books still to be released. This list is mainly the books that have been/are being released between July and the end of this year that I want to read, as well two that just sounded so good I couldn’t pass them by.

A little while ago I posted a discussion about the pros and cons of fairytale retellings, because while I love the subgenre that doesn’t mean there aren’t some people who avoid those books, and it also doesn’t mean I’m blind to the cons. Someone mentioned in the comments that I could do a pros and cons post for all genres, after all there are certainly enough of them out there.
Rest assured I’m not going to do a pros and cons post for every genre. Some, like fantasy and contemporary, are too large and comprehensive to work in my mind; but after I posted my fairytale retelling post I got to think about another genre I love, another genre I want to see more of but one that does have some cons.

I loved The Narnia Chronicles when I was younger, after the Harry Potter books it was the second series I fell in love with as a child and the second series that got me hooked on reading, so a Narnia tag is just perfect beyond words for me. I was tagged by Diana at Diana Prince Reviews and Sammie at Bookshelves & Biros. Thanks so much both of you for the tag, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

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.

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 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 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 …
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.

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.
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.
