The Sunshine Blogger Award Part Four

I’m going back to the Sunshine Blogger Award in this post, because I still have some questions left to answer from more of the amazing bloggers who nominated me for this award. Previously I’ve answered questions on books and questions on my blog and myself, but now in this post I’m going back for more questions on books.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Meant to Read in 2018 but Didn’t Get To

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 Meant to Read in 2018 but Didn’t Get To.

At the start of every year I have the best intentions when it comes to all the books I’m going to try and read, but then by the end of every year I’ve always fallen short. One of the downfalls of being a mood reader is that I can never stick to TBR lists so I always get to January 1st and find there are a few books still on my TBR list that shouldn’t be there, and I feel like there were more from 2018 than there usually are.

Discussion Time: What Do You Do When Your Favourite Genre Becomes “Tired”?

A poor girl from a broken family finds a job working for royalty, but she soon finds herself in grave danger when a power she didn’t know she had emerges. Add in a love triangle between two brothers, a murderous queen, and potentially a rebellion and what book am I describing? If you said Red Queen you’re correct, but if you said Evermore you’re also correct.

There are probably more books out there which follow that same template, and after whole it gets boring. While everyone has one favourite genre, one they keep going back to over and over again, when you read the same stories and the same generic tropes just with different character names you can get a little tired.

The Twenty Questions Book Tag

You may have noticed I disappeared for the last two weeks. Where was I? Good question. I’m not sure what happened but I just suffered from a major slump and everything – blogging, reading, life in general – felt like a struggle. Still I’m back now, and slowly catching up on the posts I’ve missed over the past couple of weeks.

And what better way is there to get back into blogging than posting a book tag? Because let’s face it who doesn’t have an opinion on whether hardcovers or paperbacks are better, or on love triangles in general? I do, and I’m certain some people already know the answers to these questions I’m that outspoken about them. I was tagged by May at Forever and Everly. Thanks for the tag May, 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 Backlist Books I Want to 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 is Top Ten Backlist Books I Want to Read.

Honestly at this point I almost have too many backlist books to count. My TBR list is a little out of control and I keep saying there are books I’ll get around to soon but I know myself and “soon” for me doesn’t seem to have the same meaning as it does for everyone else. The ten books I picked this week are books I’d love to say are a priority of mine, books I’ve moved to the top of my TBR list, but part of me thinks they’ll still be on my TBR list the next time a backlist TTT topic comes around.

You’re Not Good Enough Book Tag

When the Pingback for this tag first appeared in my notifications I thought it was a strange and possibly passive aggressive insult, then I realised it was a tag and had to laugh at how ridiculous I was being. I was tagged by Anny at The Mystique Reader. Thanks so much for the tag Anny, 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 Longest Books I’ve Ever 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 is Top Ten Longest Books I’ve Ever Read.

This was a difficult topic for me because it’s rare that I pick up epically long books. There’s just something really intimidating when you see a massive book sitting on your shelves and you know it’s going to be a mission getting through it. Still I managed to come up with ten, though I did cheat a little and feature one that I haven’t got around to yet but that I will be reading as soon as I can.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books by my Favourite Authors that I Still Haven’t 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 is Top Ten Books by my Favourite Authors that I Still Haven’t Read.

One of the things that made this week’s topic such a hard one for me is that when I have a favourite author I tend to binge read everything they’ve released; Marissa Meyer, Samantha Shannon, V.E. Schwab, three of my favourite authors and there’s not one book they’ve released that I haven’t read yet. Still I managed to come up with ten, mainly because my TBR list is that long and that unmanageable.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books on my Fall 2018 TBR List

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 on my Fall 2018 TBR List.

I already have a TBR list that grows longer with every passing second thanks to WordPress, but with all the amazing books being released (some of which are my most anticipated release for this year overall) I wonder if I’ll ever get to the end of it. Still as much as being a mood reader means I pick up what books I want to when I want to there are some reads I know I’ll be starting as soon as I can get a copy of the book in my hands.
