Top Ten Tuesday: Cover Love

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 visual. Now, I was stumped by this topic. To start, I’ve read a total of 3 graphic novels in my lifetime. I could have done a TV spotlight, but I did that in last weeks TTT. So the only topic I could think of relevant to this week was on book covers. Admit it, you’ve judge a book by its cover and these are 10 books that gave me a serious case of cover love and are now happily sitting on my bookshelf looking all pretty.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books that scare me.

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

With Halloween just around the corner I thought I’d take this freebie week as a way of highlighting the books that scare me. These are the books that have been sat on my tbr list for a while now because they intimidate me. The reasons why vary but it doesn’t lessen my interest in the books, it just means I need to find the courage to take the plunge and actually read them.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books recommended by the blogosphere.

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

Let’s talk recommendations. I love getting book recommendations but I am terrible at actually reading them. My mood reading tendencies mean I never know when I’m going to pick up these books so if you have recommended a book to me in the past forgive me for taking so long to read them. 

Here is a list of 10 books I have read based on the reviews I’ve read from the blogosphere.

How do you expect me to narrow down my all time favourite list? I have a lot of all time favourites and new ones are constantly being added to it. It took me a while but since I decided to split this topic into two halves I can provide you with the 5 contemporary and 5 fantasy books that stick with me.

Top Ten Tuesday: Recent 5 Star 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.

Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday. This week we’re all about that 5 Star moment. I always wonder whether I am too generous with my ratings but I try not to dwell on that too much. Now the real question is, why? What did these books specifically do to get that top rating. If I’m honest, I think my mood has a huge influence the rating because I love forming that emotional connection to the characters and the world.

Here are my 10 most recent 5 star reads and when I read them.

Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Quotes from Books I Don’t Talk About Enough

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 weeks topic is all about showing some love to books we feel like we don’t talk about enough. I’ve kind of taken on this topic in the last freebie we had, which you can see here. So I thought why don’t I highlight my favourite quotes from books I feel I don’t give as much attention to. These books are all ones I really enjoyed but I only mention in passing or I only refer to the book in the context of the entire series.
