Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Reading Recommendations for my Cousin Through the Years

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 Want my Future Children to Read.

While this could change at the moment I don’t see myself having children. However one of my younger cousins has developed an all-consuming love of Harry Potter, the series that kick-started my obsession with reading, so for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic I’ve done a list of series, author and book recommendations for her for once she’s ready to move on from Harry Potter.

Top Ten Tuesday: Five Characters who Have Made Great Leaders and Five Characters who Wouldn’t Make Great Leaders

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 who Would Make Great Leaders.

I put a little twist on this week’s theme and instead I’m going to focus on five characters who’ve made great leaders, and five characters who wouldn’t make great leaders and should in no way be put in a leadership position. I read a lot of fantasy, and if there’s one thing there’s plenty of in the fantasy genre it’s leaders, be they lost princesses fighting for their throne or rebels fighting for a cause.

The Character Dating Profile

I was tagged by Fadwa at Word Wonders. Thanks so much for the tag Fadwa, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much. There was only ever going to be one choice as to which character I’d be featuring; Kell from the Shades of Magic series by V.E. Schwab. However I don’t actually see Kell taking the time to do this, so instead Rhy has filled in the profile for him. After all he entered Kell in the Essen Tasch, why not this as well?

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books that Feature … Characters

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 that Feature … Characters.

The Best Villainous/Morally Grey

Everyone loves villains, there’s a whole anthology devoted to them now. When I saw this week’s open prompt the first thing that came to mind was villainous characters, or more specifically morally grey characters who could never be called heroes but are just out for themselves and make no apologies for what they need to do to achieve their goal. There are some brilliant ones in the books I’ve read, and this is my chance to feature my top ten.

The Book Aesthetic Tag

So I haven’t been tagged in The Book Aesthetic Tag, not officially anyways, and I don’t normally post two tags on two consecutive days, but I’m jumping on the aesthetics bandwagon and The Book Aesthetic Tag goes so well with The Blogger Aesthetic Tag I posted yesterday that I just couldn’t resist.

I saw this tag first on Kat’s blog, Life and Other Disasters, and technically she tagged everyone so I thought that could include me as well. Even though I still have a queue of tags I’m trying to get through.

The Book Aesthetic Tag

Rules:

  • Thank whoever nominated you (maybe you’re bitter that you have another tag to do on top of the billions you already need to do (#relatable), still though. Someone thought of you. Be thankful. At least pretend to be.)
  • Credit the creator of this tag; Michelle at The Writing Hufflepuff.
  • There’s no limit of how many aesthetics you can make for a question, but think of your poor readers.
  • Make your own aesthetics, please don’t steal them from someone else. Also what’s the fun in that?

This is My Genre, Tell Me Yours Book Tag

I can never talk too much about my favourite genre, and now there’s a whole tag dedicated to it. I reckon by now most of you know what genre I will be featuring for this tag, after all it’s my favourite for a reason. I was tagged by Meggy at Chocolate ‘N’ Waffles and Lashaan and Trang at Bookidote. 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.

This is My Genre, Tell Me Yours Book Tag

Rules:

  • Credit the bad bad Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek as the creator of the tag. Either use the created tag name graphic or create your own and link back to his blog.
  • Answer the questions.
  • Tag as many people as you want.

The Narnia Book Tag

I loved The Narnia Chronicles when I was younger, after the Harry Potter books it was the second series I fell in love with as a child and the second series that got me hooked on reading, so a Narnia tag is just perfect beyond words for me. I was tagged by Diana at Diana Prince Reviews and Sammie at Bookshelves & Biros. Thanks so much both of you for the tag, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Rainbow Book Tag

Pretty book covers are always going to be a weakness of mine, which I feel most people are well aware of now. The phase ‘never judge a book by its cover’ has never really applied to me and I’ve only discovered a few favourite books of mine after seeing how pretty the cover was. I was tagged by Jacquie at Rattle the Stars. Thanks so much for the tag Jacquie, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Rainbow Book Tag

Rules:

  • It must be the dominant colour of the cover not the spine!
  • If you do not own a book of a certain colour, just choose one that has the colour on it somewhere.
  • It has to be a book you own and/or has to be the exact edition you read (e.g. there are two different covers for Me Before You, you would choose the one you read).
  • Tag some people to do it! Whether they be Bloggers, Bookstagrammers or BookTubers.

The Goodreads Book Tag

Now I finally have a Goodreads account for my blog I can take part in this tag without feeling like a fraud. Also, now I finally have a Goodreads account for my blog, I’m not sure why it took me so long to get around to creating one. I was tagged by Kirstie at Upside-Down Books. Thanks so much for the tag Kirstie, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Reading Around the World: London

Reading Around the World is a new feature that combines my love of travelling with my love of reading. Each month I plan to spotlight either a city I have visited, or a city I plan to visit in the near future, and recommend some of my favourite books set there. After all even if you can’t visit these cities yourself the next best thing has to be reading about them and living the experience through the eyes of the characters.
