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: Favourite Book Quotes

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.

Happy Tuesday! Since my last post, I’ve gone and twisted my bad knee again. Resting the knee meant that I had plenty of time to search through my quote book for this weeks topic. This was such a hard topic, not because I couldn’t find anything, but because there were too many to choose from. The quotes I’ve chosen today are ones that provoked a reaction from me. Whether it be the emotion of the moment, or the way I could relate to it. Some also make great life mantras, while others are simply just an epic quote. Here are 10 of my favourite book quotes.

Happy Tuesday everyone. I hope the week has been kind to you so far. This week, we are talking about our go-to books. We all have those books that we can never get enough of. I love re-reading books. I think there are so many merits to re-reading, but the main reason for me is that familiarity. Re-reading is like meeting up with an old friend and reconnecting once again after years or months apart. Here are the books I could read forever.

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.
