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: Bookish Worlds I’d Never Live In

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.

This week is all about the bookish worlds we’d never want to live in. With that in mind, my obvious conclusions went to all of the brutal fantasy worlds which would kill me the second I’d step on the land. I’m a delicate flower, and I bruise easily so these five worlds are ones I wouldn’t dream of stepping foot in because I would literally be destroyed.

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.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books Featuring My Favourite Colour

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 must admit that my favourite colour changes all the time. I think it corresponds with the seasons and my general mood for the day. However, the one colour I always seem to turn to is blue. So here’s a collection of book covers in various shades of blue and below you will get to see why blue seems to be my favourite colour.

April Wrap Up 2018

We’re already a third of the way into 2018 and here comes my obligatory where has the time gone statement. April was super busy for me this year. To start, I took on a load of extra shifts at my job which was great but also exhausting, especially since I also have a second job as well. So, usually, by the time I’d get home I’d be so tired, I wouldn’t even attempt to open my laptop. That means, I also wasn’t as active on the blog, which I’m still so sorry about. My blog hopping game has been terrible recently so if you’ve posted something you’re proud of feel free to send me the link so I can read them.

I also celebrated my 24th birthday in April. I worked in the day but treated myself to an abundance of cake and Chinese food in the evening. It was a very relaxed birthday.

The good news is that I also read a whopping 2 books in April. This is a big deal since my prior record was just 1 book per month, so I’m slowly getting my reading mojo back. I read Say You Remember Me by Katie McGarry which was raw, realisitc, and emotional. It was the perfect book to get out of this funk. I also read Invictus by Ryan Graudin. This was one of my most anticipated releases of 2017 and it definitely lived up to my expectations. I love how Graudin explores the consequences of time travel and the character dynamics were incredible. 

Here’s a summary of April for all of you.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Slay a Lion to Get Early

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 always write up a list of book I want to prioritise for the year. I’ve been a lot more strict with my book spending this year, but there are a few books that demand to be bought. I wouldn’t literally slay a Lion, I’d be eaten by the Lion if I tried, but there is that level of desperation that comes with waiting to get my hands on these books.
