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

Top Ten Tuesday: Books that Feature Athletes

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 characters. Following my discussion post on why you should read sports contemporary novels, I thought it’d be appropriate to focus this weeks Top Ten Tuesday on books that feature athletes. Most of these books are ones I’ve read but there is one that is on the must read list.

Discussion: Reasons to Read Sports Contemporary Novels

Let’s talk sports. Now, I must confess that I am not an athletically inclined person. However, I love watching sports and last year I jumped down the rabbit hole and discovered the addictive world of sports contemporary novels.

Top Ten Tuesday: Back to School Special

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

Confession. I was not a reader in school. In fact my “great rebellion” was to not read the required books that was set for our class, well until I had no choice but to read it. Why? Because I hated being told what I could or couldn’t read. Plus with every book I was conscious of the fact that I had to analyse and decode the book and because of that I never felt like I could just read the book for the sake of enjoy it.

So, for this weeks Back to School freebie, instead of setting a required reading list, I thought I’d post a recommended back to school reading list. There’s a little bit of everything in this list so that you can pick and chose a book that suits your reading preferences.

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.

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.

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.
