Top Ten Tuesday: Top Five Authors I’ve Met Top Five Authors I Want to Meet

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 Five Authors I’ve Met Top Five Authors I Want to Meet.

Most authors I’ve met were at YALC last year, and I am looking forwards to going again this year and meeting even more. You never know some of the authors on the second half of my list this week may be attending. In the end though it feels like the ten authors in this list (five of whom I still want to meet) aren’t enough to fully capture how many authors I still want to meet one day.

The Pokémon Go Tag

We’ll just pretend that the Pokémon Go craze isn’t over and that I’m not six or seven months late posting this tag.

Even when it was in its height I never got into Pokémon Go although two of my friends were obsessed with the game, and one of them still is. I guess when you nearly get into a car accident because of someone else playing the game when they should be focusing on the road it kind of loses its appeal for you. I was tagged by Grace at Kimmie.gg. Thanks so much for the tag Grace, I had a lot of fun answering these questions and I hope you enjoyed reading my answers as much.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books You’ll Stay up All Night Reading so You Can Finish Them in One Go

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 a read in one sitting freebie, so I picked Top Ten Books You’ll Stay up All Night Reading so You Can Finish Them in One Go.

My blog’s name is Reading Every Night so I guess this felt like an appropriate pick for this week’s themed free-for-all. Besides we’ve all had those books we just couldn’t put down. You keep telling yourself it’ll be ‘just one more chapter’ but before you know it it’s four in the morning, you’ve finished your book, and haven’t been to sleep yet despite needing to get up for work in two hours.

The Valentine’s Day Book Tag

So even though Valentine’s Day is over now I thought there was still just enough time for me to post this tag. It’s jumped a little ahead in my queue simply because if I tried to get through all the others first I’d end up getting around to this one June/July time, better a few days late than a few months right?

the-valentines-day-book-tag

I’ll admit I’m not a massive fan of Valentine’s Day, for me it was pretty much just another Tuesday, but I hope everyone else had a wonderful day with your respective partners and if you’re single like me then I hope you had a brilliant day in general. I was tagged by Heather at The Sassy Book Geek. Thanks so much for the tag Heather, I had a lot of fun with this one and I hope you enjoyed reading it as much.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Favourite YA Book Covers; UK Edition Vs. US Edition

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 an all about visuals freebie, and while it was supposed to be about graphic novels I haven’t read nearly enough to make a list so I picked Top Ten Favourite YA Book Covers; UK Edition Vs. US Edition instead.

For reasons, unbeknownst to most of us, sometimes there are different covers for the UK edition and the US edition of the same book. While with most of the books I own I have been more than happy with the UK cover there are still a few where I’ve looked on at the copies people in the US have brought and gotten very jealous. There have even been a couple of very rare occasions where I’ve gone onto the US Amazon site and paid the extra shipping just to get the US covers, but that’s very rare.

The Zombie Book Tag

The way 2016 ended does anyone feel the end of the world is really too far off? After some of the things that happened last year the apocalypse wouldn’t really surprise me that much.

Good news for me though if it’s a zombie apocalypse one of my friends literally has a step by step plan to ensure our survival. Bad news for everyone though is that it’s a zombie apocalypse, what isn’t bad news in that situation? I was tagged by Jill at Rant and Rave About Books, who also created the below image. Thanks so much for the tag Jill, I had a lot of fun with this one. Everyone should definitely check out Jill’s original post and her blog as well while you’re there.

2016 End of Year Survey

Happy New Year everyone! Here’s hoping you all have an amazing 2017. To celebrate the new year and look back at my reading journey throughout 2016 I decided to take part in the End of Year Survey created and hosted by Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner.

2016-end-of-year-survey

Last year I saw a couple of bloggers on WordPress taking part in this. It looked like such a fun way to look back over the year but as I’d already posted an end of year review for 2015 I didn’t see the point in doing another one. Still I remember the survey and now we’ve reached the end of 2016 I’ve taken the opportunity to take part in it myself.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Best Books of 2016

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 Best Books of 2016.

Picking only the top ten best books I’ve read throughout 2016 was so hard. There were so many amazing ones I read across quite a few genres this year, and so many amazing new authors I discovered as well, that I wanted to feature them all. In the end I managed to narrow it down to the top ten but honestly there are so many more; this could have easily been a top twenty list, or even a top thirty.
