Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Bookish Settings I’d Love to Visit

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 Bookish Settings I’d Love to Visit.

This, more than any other topic The Broke and the Bookish have ever done, was made for me. I read fantasy for the world building; for the incredible and fantastical worlds that I can only explore through the writing. If there is one thing I wish more than anything else it’s that I had the power to visit bookish worlds because there are so many places I’d love to visit. Until that becomes a reality, I’ll settle for reading about them.

Kiss, Marry, Cliff Tag

This is such a fun and unique idea for a tag. I chose nine books at random and, flicking through the pages, picked the first character name I saw. It was very easy to decide who to cliff, harder to decide who to kiss and who to marry. I was tagged by Nicole at Sorry I’m Booked. Thanks so much for the tag Nicole, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Kiss Marry Cliff Tag

Rules:

  • Put names of characters, written on separate pieces of papers, in an empty jar or a pen holder.
  • Shake the jar.
  • Pull out three pieces of paper in each round and tell us which character you would kiss, marry, or cliff!

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books on my Fall TBR List

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.

Discussion Time: The Pros and Cons of Magical Realism

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.

The Narnia Book Tag

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: 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.

The Aussie Book Tag

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.
