Top Ten Tuesday: Best Reads of 2017 so far

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

2017 has been a bit of a slumpy reading year. I’ve only read 18 books so far and quite a few of those were re-reads. So, instead of picking my top 10 books of the year so far, I’ve decided to narrow the list to my top 6 books.

Top Ten Tuesday: Series I Mean to Start / Need to Finish

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

This week is all about series, specifically the series we keep meaning to start and in my case have yet to finish. I must admit I have a bad tendency to start a series and not finish it. I always mean to finish them but it usually takes a good year or two to do so. I’m also guilt at not starting a series I’ve been meaning to read. I’m splitting this topic into two halves so here are the book series that are sitting on my tbr list or are in need of completion.

SERIES I NEED TO READ

Top Ten Tuesday: Father’s Day Freebie

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

I am so thankful for this topic because if I hadn’t seen it, I would have forgotten all about Father’s Day. In contrast to the Mother’s Day freebie, I found it a lot easier to find books that feature a father figure. Here are my chosen 10 books that feature a father figure.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books Added to the TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

This week is all about the books recently added to my never ending tbr pile. I must admit I always forget to add books to the list on goodreads so for that reason I do a good job at forgetting which books I do plan on reading. For this week I’ve split this topic into two halves. The first will focus on the recent fantasy books added to the list while the second looks at the contemporary.

Happy Tuesday everyone. This week we are talking about our most anticipated book releases for the second half of 2017. There are so many epic titles set to be unleashed to the world this year so narrowing down my top 10 was a challenge but I got there in the end.

Top Ten Tuesday: Summer Reads

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

Summer’s here and it feels so good. Our summers are usually short and sweet in the UK so any sign of sunshine and warmth is welcomed. Summertime is usually my contemporary reading time. I like it when a book reflects the weather and I have been seriously slacking on my contemporary reading (and reading in general) this year. So here are the 10 contemporary books I plan on devouring this summer.

Top Ten Tuesday: Mother’s Day Freebie

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

Fun fact, we (the UK) actually celebrate this holiday in the month of March but mother’s deserve all the love and appreciation in the world everyday. Sadly, I’ve noticed that a lot of Young Adult and Fantasy novels tend to either kill off the mother or have them be a non entity. I love exploring family dynamics in books so this week I am going to highlight some books that have a strong focus on family.
