Book Blogging Firsts Tag

I’ve been blogging for nearly four years now, and in those four years so much has happened. I’ve refreshed my blog design a couple of times, expanded the range of posts I publish, been inspired to start writing again and grown as a writer. Today though I’m pushing all of that to one side and taking a trip down memory lane back to November 2015 when Reading Every Night was born.

I was tagged by Marie at Drizzle and Hurricane Books. Thanks so much for the tag Marie, it was a lot of fun (if a little cringe-y at times) going back and looking at my various book blogging firsts.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Characters that Remind Me of Myself

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature that was created by The Broke and the Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Born from a love of lists and a love of books each week there’s a new topic for bloggers to list their ‘top ten’.

Top Ten Characters that Remind Me of Myself

One of the things I love about reading is how the books I pick up take me to different worlds where I can escape from my real-life problems for a couple of hours, and because I mainly read fantasy books it was a little challenging to come up with ten characters that reminded me of myself. My favourite characters risk their lives for what they believe in and honestly I don’t think I’d be able to be that brave if I was in the same situation, so while I can’t wholly relate to the ten characters I picked this week there were aspects of each of their characterisations that stuck with me.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Rainy Day Reads

Top Ten Rainy Day Reads

I’m finally back to the set topics for my Top Ten Tuesday posts. Being a mood reader I’ve never given too much thought as to what kind of books I’d pick up as ‘rainy day’ reads, but thinking about it for this post the first books that came to mind were fantasy stories (of course) with immersive worlds (so you can put the rainy weather outside out of your mind). A lot of the books that made my list this week probably won’t surprise many people, because in my opinion the best ‘rainy day’ book is one that’s almost comforting to re-read.

The Sunshine Blogger Award Part One

I do generally consider myself a ‘sunny’ person, especially considering this year I’ve been making more of an effort to prioritise my mental health, so maybe that’s why I got more nominations for The Sunshine Blogger Award. What I love about the Sunshine Blogger Award is that there are always different questions, so I can take part in this one as many times as I am nominated.

The Twenty Questions Book Tag

You may have noticed I disappeared for the last two weeks. Where was I? Good question. I’m not sure what happened but I just suffered from a major slump and everything – blogging, reading, life in general – felt like a struggle. Still I’m back now, and slowly catching up on the posts I’ve missed over the past couple of weeks.

And what better way is there to get back into blogging than posting a book tag? Because let’s face it who doesn’t have an opinion on whether hardcovers or paperbacks are better, or on love triangles in general? I do, and I’m certain some people already know the answers to these questions I’m that outspoken about them. I was tagged by May at Forever and Everly. Thanks for the tag May, 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 I’m Thankful I was able to Discover through Blogging

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 a thanksgiving freebie, so I picked Top Ten Books I’m Thankful I was able to Discover through Blogging.

(I will admit a lot of my time thinking about this post was working out how to write the title so it was concise while still getting across my choice of topic for this week).

I’ve always loved reading, but ever since I started blogging there have been so many incredible books added to my TBR list because of all the glowing, five-star reviews I see. Maybe if I hadn’t started blogging some of these are books I still would have picked up eventually, but there are a few I know I never would have read if it hadn’t been for this blog, and the community.

You’re Not Good Enough Book Tag

When the Pingback for this tag first appeared in my notifications I thought it was a strange and possibly passive aggressive insult, then I realised it was a tag and had to laugh at how ridiculous I was being. I was tagged by Anny at The Mystique Reader. Thanks so much for the tag Anny, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.
