Top Ten Tuesday: Five Books I Nearly DNF-ed but am Glad I Stuck With, and Five Books I Stuck With but Wish I DNF-ed

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 I Hated but am Really Glad I Read.

None, my answer for that question is none. I have not read one book that I hated but that, looking back, I’m glad I picked up. I decided to put my own spin on the topic for this week, so I’d actually have some books to feature, and I’ve gone for Five Books I Nearly DNF-ed but am Glad I Stuck With, and Five Books I Stuck With but Wish I DNF-ed.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Read and Loved While at High School/Uni

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 a throwback freebie, so I picked Top Ten Books I Read and Loved While at High School/Uni.

It was in high school, after reading Twilight, that I rediscovered my love of reading and grabbed all the young adult books I could get my hands on. Since then my reading tastes have changed a lot and some books I read back then, like Twilight, I know I wouldn’t enjoy as much if I picked them up again today. My picks for this week are all books I read while I was in high school or university, that I enjoyed but haven’t re-read since.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I’ve Had on my TBR List Since Before I Started Blogging

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’ve Had on my TBR List Since Before I Started Blogging.

My to-read list is massive. Even before I started blogging there were books on there I added years previously which I still hadn’t gotten around to.

Then I joined WordPress, saw all the amazing five-star glowing reviews people were writing, and my to-read list just kept growing and growing. Going back for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme and looking at all the books I added way back when before I started my blog I was surprised by how many I’d forgotten were on there, and how many I doubt I’ll ever get around to picking up now.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For The First Half 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 Most Anticipated Releases For The First Half of 2016.

I have so many books that I cannot wait to get my hands on in 2016 so the only struggle I had with this week’s list was narrowing it down to ten. Most of my top ten this week are next/final books in their series, I tried to pick books that I haven’t already highlighted in previous Top Ten Tuesday posts.
