Top Ten Tuesday: Books on my Autumn To Read Pile

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 all but given up trying to set a monthly tbr pile because I never stick to them. However, if there’s one thing I am determined to do, it’s to narrow down the list of books that I own and remain unread. I wrote out a list of them a few months ago and I’m not going to lie it looks grim. So many books are gathering dust on my shelf so I’m hoping I can tick off a few more by the end of the year. Here are the ten books that I plan on reading this autumn.

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.

Discussion: Why I Should Read More Historical Fiction

History – the study of past events, particularly in human affairs.

There’s no doubt that contemporary and fantasy are my go-to book. I never want to limit myself to one particular genre so I’ll read anything and everything that interests me. I’ve not read many historic fiction books but the ones I have read have all been hits. As always, I have to be in the right mood to read historical fiction, but every time I’ve immersed myself in that genre I’ve always enjoyed it. So here are the reasons I should take the time to read more historical fiction titles.

Top Ten Tuesday: Must Meet Authors

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

Not so long ago I wrote a post on my dream book conference panel. We all have authors we’d love to meet in person. Unfortunately for me, most authors that do a UK book tour tend to stick to the major cities, meaning that I’d have to commute at least 2/3 hours to the closest destination. One of these days I will go to a bookish event, so with that in mind here are the authors I’d love to meet.
