Top Ten Tuesday: Best of 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

2018 was not a good reading year for me. I read a total of 11 books. Not great, but numbers don’t matter when it comes to reading. While I only read a small number of books they were all enjoyable. I did a lot of re-reading this year, but these 5 books were the standouts of the year.

Top Ten Tuesday: Longest Books Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list. 

Good afternoon. Now, this week’s topic is all about length. I’ll be the first to admit that I get so intimidated by books that are over 600 pages long, which is why I’ve only featured the books that are over that number. They are beasts in terms of size and depth, so you know before going into the books that they’re going to take a whole lot of time to finish. However, some books are worth it and you’ll find that the layers of depth to these books are unrivaled. So, here are the longest books I have ever read.

Top Ten Tuesday: Worth the Hype

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list. 

It would be so easy to write a list of the pros and cons of hyped books, but I’ll save that for another time. Instead, this weeks topic is all about highlighting those books that lived up to the hype. Now, I don’t know about you, but hyped books intimidate me because you go in expecting to be blown away only to be left with a mediocre ‘meh’ moment. However, certain books do live up to those expectations, and here are the books that are worth all the hype.

Top Ten Tuesday: Summer TBR 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

I’ve talked about why I don’t typically set a TBR list. So I like to think of this as a wish list of books I’d like to read in the Summer. I only ticked off two books on my Spring TBR, so I’ve not mentioned the books on that list as they’ve already been carried over to this list. Here are the books I hope to read this Summer.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Awaken the Tavel Bug In Me

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

As I’m writing this I’ll be sat at the airport waiting for my return flight to the UK. So, I think for the time my wanderlust will be sated, but I’m already planning my next adventure. In the meantime, here are the books that make my wanderlust go wild.

Top Ten Tuesday: Best Character Names

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

I remember writing a similar post to this one a while back, so I thought my challenge for this week would be to not use the same names. If you’d like to see the original post of favourite character names, click here. So, for this week I’m going to highlight some more of my favourite character names. I’ll try and keep it even between the male and females, but I always find it easier to pick a male name. Anyway, here are my additional 10 favourite character names.
