I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love taking part in food tags. They always make me so hungry and this one was no exception. I almost needed a pile of candy next to me to snack on as I answered these questions. I was tagged by Michelle at Book Adventures. 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 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 summer reads freebie, so I picked Top Ten Books on My Summer TBR List.
Once summer comes around I start reading the contemporaries on my TBR list. After all there’s nothing better than sitting on the beach or in my garden, the sun shining, with a good book filled with great characters, fluffy romances, and travel all over the world. There are so many YA contemporaries on my to-read list, and even more being released it was hard to choose just ten.
Between the last time I published a post for this award and now, I was nominated by nine bloggers. Rather than creating one massive post of nearly one hundred questions I’ve split this into three parts. If you nominated me for this award before the end of March and don’t see your questions here they’ll be in part two or three which will be published soon, but at a later date. I was tagged by Lost in Pages, Annike and Zoë at Twin Tales, and Sunshine and Cyclones. Thanks so much for the tag everyone, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.
There are so many TV programs I love, and even more that are on my to-watch list, however I don’t actually have Netflix myself. Still I figured you don’t need to have Netflix to take part in this tag! I was tagged by Reg at She Latitude. Thanks so much for the tag Reg, I had a lot of fun answering these questions and I hope you enjoyed reading them as much. Everyone should definitely check out Reg’s original post and her blog as well while you’re there. Reg is such an amazing person, and she writes some brilliant reviews, among other posts.

Up all night.
Nights have always been Auden’s time, her chance to escape everything that’s going on around her.
Then she meets Eli, a fellow insomniac, and he becomes her nocturnal tour guide.
Now, with an endless supply of summer nights between them, almost anything can happen…

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which shines a light on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.
This is actually going to be my last week taking part in the Waiting on Wednesday weekly feature. At the moment I’m not only posting a Waiting on Wednesday feature but a Top Ten Tuesday one and a Standalone Sunday one. I want to keep to two max on this blog and at the moment I feel like I’ve featured most of the books I am desperately waiting on.
This week my pick is;
Don’t worry, I am working my way through my queue of tags and awards I still need to complete. However, as this is a Fall activities book tag it made sense to post it now rather than in Spring/Summer after I’ve gotten through all the tags before it in my queue. I’ve been seeing this one around WordPress a fair bit at the moment, so obviously I was thrilled to be able to take part.
Although it does seem to me this is more of an American tag than English one. I’ve never been apple picking or to a corn maze, and we’re not big over here on carving pumpkins. Still it was great fun to be able to take part in this. I was tagged by Lauren at Lauren’s Page Turners. Thank you so much for the tag Lauren; everyone else should definitely check out her original post and while you’re there her blog as well.
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 Characters I’d Name a Child/Pet After.
However I really struggled with this one, I don’t tend to read character names and think they’d be perfect for my future child or pet. So instead I changed it to Top Ten Characters I’d Love to Have as Family Members. There are so many characters I fall in love with from the moment they’re introduced and if I could pick my family, and if I could pluck the characters I love out of their books, I’d love to be able to call them members of my family.
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 All Time Favourite Books in the … Genre.
When I saw this week’s theme it took me a while to actually come up with a genre to which I could feature my favourite books. I’d already used my favourite genres for previous Top Ten Tuesday themes – fairytale retellings, mythology, fantasy, sci-fi – and I had no new ideas. Then I came up with YA contemporary. It’s a genre I’m slowly exploring more of and I have read some amazing books that have not only become all-time favourites of mine but that I will be going back and re-reading at some point.
