This week is all about the best of the year. Now, my reading preferences have been all over the place this year. There’s been a shift in the most read genre category and I’ve been facing a bit of a slump. However, these books are the ones that stood out the most to me and the ones I’d happily go back and re-read. Here are my top 10 favourite books of 2017.

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

Just a warning, this post was written at the very last minute before heading out for the day, so I’m keeping it short and sweet. This weeks topic is all about those fictional worlds we’d love to visit. We are spoiled for options this week, but these were the first five locations to come to mind when I saw this topic.

November Wrap Up 2017

We have officially entered the final month of the year, and I’m sat here wondering where time has gone. Seriously, it’s like we’ve bypassed the last few months. So, November. It’s safe to say that November was my least productive month. Why? Well, I didn’t read a SINGLE book in November. Not a single one. It’s official, I have hit a slump. It sucks. It’s not from a lack of not wanting to read, but more of a can’t find the time, too tired, and can’t seem to pick the right book type of slump.

Hello everyone. The dreaded book slump has hit me this month and I’ve yet to read a single book.

In the mean time, here is a list of books that take top priority on my to read list.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books for Children

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’ve mentioned this before, but I was not an avid reader when I was a child. I hated being told what I could or could not read so my great rebellion was simply not to read. Scandalous, right? I’ve not read a few of the books, but these are the ones I think would make great reading material for kids.

Top Ten Tuesday: The Leaders

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 leaders. It’s about the characters that have that charisma and ability to take charge, in the good and bad moments. Some characters fall into this role naturally, but others find that they are unwittingly thrust into a position they never wanted. Here are the characters that I feel are or would make great leaders.

October Wrap Up 2017

Halloween has come and gone and I can finally get to that jolly festive feeling. I LOVE this time of year. It’s terrifying to think that we’ve already reached the last 2 months of 2017, but there’s always a magic in the air around this time.

I had a good reading month in October. I binge read the Brooklyn Bruiser series by Sarina Bowen and loved it. Honestly, these sports contemporary novels are defining my reading life nowadays. I haven’t been drawn to a fantasy book in months, which sucks cause I have a lot of amazing fantasy books I need to read, but the pull to these sports contemporary novels is just too strong. What I love about Sarina Bowen’s books is that they have that perfect balance between the sports and the romance. You will be swept off your feet by the romances in this series, but there’s also a lot of heart and passion for hockey in them.
