Books I’m Thankful For | Top Ten Tuesday #22

This week is a Thanksgiving/thankful freebie, so I thought I would do books that I’m thankful for, which should be a lovely trip down memory lane for me. Plus it’s a chance to revisit all my favourites, which I don’t know whether that will be a good thing or more of a distraction. These books are all books that have really impacted my life in some way. Harry Potter is an obvious choice, it was the first series that I […]

Bookish Items/Merchandise I’d Like to Own | Top Ten Tuesday #21

The problem with being a book blogger is that there is always book merchandise I want to buy and unfortunately sometimes the bank balance just doesn’t stretch that far! So this list was pretty easy to compile to be honest, which I don’t know whether I should be happy about or terrifies with.  Candles that smell of the different places in books Prints with quotes from my favourite books Any type of clothing with quotes or imagery from my favourite […]

Backlist Books | Top Ten Tuesday #20

I wasn’t entirely sure what was meant by blacklisted books so I just used the banned and challenged list I found on the internet and chose books of there. In fact once I started looking at the lists I realised that I had read more of the books that I originally thought I had.  Most of these books have been on my peripheral for quite some time already and I think 2019 may be the year that I try to […]

Favourite Villains | Top Ten Tuesday #18

I love a good villain, I think they can turn a mediocre book into something completely new and exciting. I am a huge believer in the thought that if a book doesn’t have a good antagonist then the book is going to be missing a really important element. Plus they just aren’t as interesting to read! My top ten villains would have to be: Rhysand from A Court of Thorns and Roses. You all know I’m not talking about Amarantha! […]

Bookstores/Libraries I’ve Always Wanted to Visit | Top Ten Tuesday #17

I think the bookstore is where every bookworm feels at home and where they want to spend all their money. There are definitely a few bookstores where I would like to go and spend a few hours, because lets be real these aren’t small bookstores and libraries. These are the bookstores and libraries to end all bookstores and libraries! The Strand bookstore City Lights Books Libreria Acqua Alta, Venice Powell’s, Portland, Oregon Honesty Bookshop John K. King Used and Rare […]

Longest Books I’ve Read | Top Ten Tuesday #16

I love reading a good old tome! Especially if the stories and the characters are well developed and some of my favourite. I think the best thing about reading a long book is that it doesn’t seem to end, and you can spend SO much time in the world. It’s even better when its a series of long books because you get to spend even more time with the characters and the world.  I have to say the majority of […]

Authors I’d Like to Meet | Top Ten Tuesday #15

I have been really lucky to have met some of my favourite authors at the YALC convention! But there are quite a few I would still like to meet! Which I suppose is this list! I love all of these authors for different reasons, some of them I admire because they have written some of my favourite books or the way they construct stories and the characters in them. They have all brought joy to my life one way or […]

Books By My Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read | Top Ten Tuesday #14

This is where I fall down. I have so many favourite authors and they release books fairly regularly and I am awful at keeping up with both release dates and the budget to buy them all. So I suppose this list is really a kick up my butt to read the books I already have on my shelf and to buy the ones I don’t own! As you can see I had no trouble filling my top ten. I think […]

Books On My Fall 2018 TBR | Top Ten Tuesday #13

I love fall and everything that comes along with it, the warm jumpers, the candles, the hot cups of tea and of course the cold. I love snuggling up with a good book when the wind and the rain is raging outside. It’s one of my favourite things. I cannot wait for it to get colder here. Anyway, ten books that are on my fall TBR: There are some new books on my list, and then there are some rereads. […]

Underrated Books | Top Ten Tuesday #12

I always read books that I fall so in love with and when I go and look to see what other people think of it there’s no one talking about it. It always disappoints me especially when I want to scream about the book from the rooftops! So this top ten Tuesday is perfect for this! As always, if there is a review the cover will be linked, I know there won’t be too many linked purely because some of […]
