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.

Femme Friday Book Tag

I was tagged in the Femme Friday book tag by Lauren at Wonderless Reviews and, as this was the next tag in my queue and it’s a Friday, it was the perfect opportunity to post it. Thank you so much for the tag Lauren, and everyone else should definitely check out her original post and her blog, and if you’re not following her already then what are you waiting for? Lauren is an amazing person, and she posts some brilliant reviews and discussions you won’t want to miss out on.

#FemmeFriday was created by Vicky at Books and Strips and you can learn more about it here. Basically it’s all about highlighting females in the bookish world—whether they be characters, authors, creators, etc. anyone really!

Femme Friday

The Rules:

  • Post this tag post on a Friday.
  • Tag three to five other bloggers (female or male, doesn’t matter).
  • Post the tag image with this.
  • If you’re going to start doing the meme on your blog please link back so there’s a pingback in the comments section for others to check out.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books on my Beach 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 Beach TBR List.

For a book to make it onto my summer TBR list there are a few requirements. I prefer standalones because the I don’t have to wait for another book to reach a happy ending, I want there to be a cute romance story, and I want it to be full of sun, fun, travel and happy endings. It’s why most of my summer reads end up being contemporary books. This year I already have way more than ten on my to-read list; all of them perfect for sitting on the beach one day while on holiday, or sitting in my garden when the sun is out and I have nothing else to do all day.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Enjoyed Recently That Weren’t My Typical Genre

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 Enjoyed Recently That Weren’t My Typical Genre.

Last year I didn’t really read many books that went out of my comfort zone. So to rectify that, and also to see if there’s another genre I would end up loving as much as I do fantasy, one of my New Year’s Resolutions was to branch out and read more books I wouldn’t normally pick up. For this week’s Top Ten I have highlighted five books I read recently that weren’t my typical genre and five books that are on my to-read list which, hopefully, I’ll be able to get around to soon.
