The New York Times “By the Book” Tag

I may not be a fan, or a reader, of the New York Times but I love the city of New York so that’s close enough right? I ask this having no clue what the New York Times is, other than a newspaper I’m guessing. I was tagged by Jessica at Pore Over the Pages. Thanks so much for the tag Jessica, 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 Books I’d Set as Part of my (Fictional) School Syllabus

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 back to school freebie, so I picked Top Ten Books I’d Set as Part of my (Fictional) School Syllabus.

I didn’t hate high school when I was there so many years ago now, but what I did hate was being forced to pick up books I had no interest in (Julius Caesar anyone?). If I was in charge we would have read pretty much anything else. When I thought of this week’s school-themed freebie the first idea that came to me was setting a syllabus for my own fictional school, so that’s what I did.

Because You Love to Hate Me: 13 Tales of Villainy

Because You Hate to Love Me


Title: Because You Love to Hate Me: 13 Tales of Villainy

Author: Ameriie (Editor)

Series: N/A

Publisher: Bloomsbury Childrens

Release Date: July 13th 2017

Rating:

Five Stars

Leave it to the heroes to save the world—villains just want to rule the world.

In this unique YA anthology, thirteen acclaimed, bestselling authors team up with thirteen influential BookTubers to reimagine fairy tales from the oft-misunderstood villains’ points of view.

These fractured, unconventional spins on classics like “Medusa,” Sherlock Holmes, and “Jack and the Beanstalk” provide a behind-the-curtain look at villains’ acts of vengeance, defiance, and rage—and the pain, heartbreak, and sorrow that spurned them on. No fairy tale will ever seem quite the same again!

Featuring writing from…

Authors: Renee Ahdieh, Ameriie, Soman Chainani, Susan Dennard, Sarah Enni, Marissa Meyer, Cindy Pon, Victoria Schwab, Samantha Shannon, Adam Silvera, Andrew Smith, April Genevieve Tucholke, and Nicola Yoon

BookTubers: Benjamin Alderson (Benjaminoftomes), Sasha Alsberg (abookutopia), Whitney Atkinson (WhittyNovels), Tina Burke (ChristinaReadsYA blog and TheLushables), Catriona Feeney (LittleBookOwl), Jesse George (JessetheReader), Zoë Herdt (readbyzoe), Samantha Lane (Thoughts on Tomes), Sophia Lee (thebookbasement), Raeleen Lemay (padfootandprongs07), Regan Perusse (PeruseProject), Christine Riccio (polandbananasBOOKS), and Steph Sinclair & Kat Kennedy (Cuddlebuggery blog and channel).

Rainbow Book Tag

Pretty book covers are always going to be a weakness of mine, which I feel most people are well aware of now. The phase ‘never judge a book by its cover’ has never really applied to me and I’ve only discovered a few favourite books of mine after seeing how pretty the cover was. I was tagged by Jacquie at Rattle the Stars. Thanks so much for the tag Jacquie, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Rainbow Book Tag

Rules:

  • It must be the dominant colour of the cover not the spine!
  • If you do not own a book of a certain colour, just choose one that has the colour on it somewhere.
  • It has to be a book you own and/or has to be the exact edition you read (e.g. there are two different covers for Me Before You, you would choose the one you read).
  • Tag some people to do it! Whether they be Bloggers, Bookstagrammers or BookTubers.

Reading Around the World: London

Reading Around the World is a new feature that combines my love of travelling with my love of reading. Each month I plan to spotlight either a city I have visited, or a city I plan to visit in the near future, and recommend some of my favourite books set there. After all even if you can’t visit these cities yourself the next best thing has to be reading about them and living the experience through the eyes of the characters.

Thanks so much for the tag Sammie, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Thanks so much for the tag Michelle, 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 of the Best Books I’ve Read So Far in 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 of the Best Books I’ve Read So Far in 2017.

This week’s topic was hard, really really hard. There have been so many amazing books released this year that I loved that originally I had twenty books on this list. I managed to narrow it down to ten but I had to make some hard cuts, and one of those was deciding not to include re-reads. These are the best books I’ve read so far this year, but there are a lot more I’ve read that I loved, and a lot more still to be released and read this year that I will likely love just as much.
