Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Hidden Gems

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 Hidden Gems.

As someone who all too often gets swept away by the hype when it comes to popular and highly anticipated releases this isn’t the best topic for me, but looking through my Goodreads read list I discovered I have read a few books which I’m surprised aren’t more popular than they are. In my opinion these are all amazing books, books I’d eagerly recommend (and in some cases have recommended to so many people already).

ARC Review: Sea Witch

Sea Witch


Title: Sea Witch

Author: Sarah Henning

Series: N/A

Publisher: HarperCollins

Release Date: July 31st 2018

Rating:

Five Stars

Everyone knows what happens in the end.

A mermaid, a prince, a true love’s kiss.

But before that young siren’s tale, there were three friends.

One feared, one royal, and one already dead.

Ever since her best friend, Anna, drowned, Evie has been an outcast in her small fishing town. A freak. A curse. A witch.

A girl with an uncanny resemblance to Anna appears offshore and, though the girl denies it, Evie is convinced that her best friend actually survived. That her own magic wasn’t so powerless after all. And, as the two girls catch the eyes – and hearts – of two charming princes, Evie believes that she might finally have a chance at her own happily ever after.

But her new friend has secrets of her own. She can’t stay in Havnestad, or on two legs, unless Evie finds a way to help her. Now Evie will do anything to save her friend’s humanity, along with her prince’s heart—harnessing the power of her magic, her ocean, and her love until she discovers, too late, the truth of her bargain.

The rise of Hans Christian Andersen’s iconic villainess is a heart-wrenching story of friendship, betrayal, and a girl pushed beyond her limits—to become a monster.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Fairytale Retellings I’ve Read

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 was originally a TTT Throwback freebie and even though it was recently changed to Top Ten Books of 2018 (So Far) I’d already drafted this post, so I decided to stick with it.

It’s no secret I love fairytale retellings, I’ve read so many of them and I still have plenty more waiting on my TBR list, so when I saw this was a TTT topic way back before I started blogging there was only one option I was going to pick for this week’s throwback theme. I had to make some very hard cuts this week when choosing my top ten, but I’m confident these are my top ten favourite fairytale retellings.

Mid Year Freak Out Tag

The name of a tag has never felt more appropriate before, because it is the middle of the year and I’m freaking out. Where has the first half of 2018 gone? Does anyone know because I feel like not long ago I was writing my post wrapping up 2017. Before I know it I’ll be preparing my post to wrap up 2018. I was tagged by The Orangutan Librarian. Thanks for the tag, 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 that Awaken the Travel Bug In Me

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 that Awaken the Travel Bug In Me.

Next to reading and blogging travel is definitely one of the great loves of my life, in fact if it was free to travel I’d never come home, and it doesn’t take much for a book to make me want to drop everything and hop on a plane somewhere far away. There are a lot of books that have inspired me to travel, and I don’t think a lot of these will come a massive surprise because I know I’ve spoke about them all before.
