Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature that was created by The Broke and the Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Born from a love of lists and a love of books each week there’s a new topic for bloggers to list their ‘top ten’.
Top Ten Books I Enjoyed that Are Outside of My Comfort Zone
I’m not very adventurous when it comes to reading. I know what I like – YA fantasy, contemporary and sci-fi – and I’m not good at venturing outside of those genres. Still there have been a few books I’ve discovered, largely thanks to blogging and other bloggers, which I’ve loved so maybe it should be a bookish resolution to try new genres a little more. After all if I’ve enjoyed the ten books I’ve featured in my list this week there are probably plenty more out there I’ll enjoy.

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 Loved but Will Never Re-Read.
I’ve done a lot of re-reading so far this year, and although the ten books I’ve featured this week are books I don’t see myself picking up again anytime soon that’s not to say I won’t ever re-read them one day in the future. I’m a mood reader so I can never tell what I’m going to fancy reading from one day to the next, but these are all books I know I won’t be re-reading anytime soon that I can say for sure.

Granted Halloween has been and gone, so I’m a little late posting this, but I couldn’t take part in the Hocus Pocus book tag without having seen Hocus Pocus. It was my Halloween movie pick for this year, and now I’ve seen it I feel I can actually publish this tag. I was tagged by Lilly at Lair of Books. Thanks so much for the tag Lilly, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.
- There are no rules. It’s your blog. But it would be nice if you linked back to Never Not Reading (the tag creator), and maybe the person who tagged you too. Share the love folks.
- Feel free to use the GIFs used by Never Not Reading, the graphics made by Flavia the Bibliophile if you would like, both, or make and use your own visuals!

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 with Less Than 2000 Ratings on Goodreads.
Is 2000 a lot of ratings for a book on Goodreads? I didn’t think so and when I first saw this topic on The Broke and the Bookish website I didn’t think I’d be able to come up with five, let alone ten, books that I’d read and enjoyed with under 2000 ratings. So when I went on Goodreads, looked through my ‘Read’ list from both before and after I started blogging, I was surprised to find that I’d read a lot more books than I first assumed with less than 2000 ratings.

So I hadn’t seen this tag around before, but it seemed like a lot of fun. I don’t tend to use emoji’s much when I text but I loved the idea of fitting books to emoji’s. I was tagged by Astra at A Stranger’s Guide to Novels, you can check out her post via the above link and you should definitely check out her blog while you’re there.
The rules for this tag are simple; pick five emoji’s and then pick five books that fit them.

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.

Title: 13 Minutes
Author: Sarah Pinborough
Publisher: Orion Publishing Group
Release Date: February 18th 2016
I was dead for 13 minutes.
I don’t remember how I ended up in the icy water but I do know this—it wasn’t an accident and I wasn’t suicidal.
They say you should keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but when you’re a teenage girl, it’s hard to tell them apart. My friends love me, I’m sure of it. But that doesn’t mean they didn’t try to kill me. Does it?

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
