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: 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: Spring 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.

Technically it’s Springtime, but it definitely still feels like Winter over here. We’ve had another heap of snow over the weekend, and while I typically love the snow, I want my seasons in order and am praying that Spring shows its face soon. I’m still in this slump, and I can’t see it indefinitely breaking anytime soon, but I hope it does cause I want to get back to reading again. So, while the likelihood of me reading half of the books on this list isn’t great I’m hoping I can find the motivation to try.

Top Ten Tuesday: Recommended Romance Books

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.

Cupid’s got his arrow out and is ready to make his mark once again. However, this single lady has only been struck by her swoon-worthy book boyfriends lately. I’ve started reading a lot more romance novels and with Valentine’s day just around the corner, I thought I’d share with you some of the most swoon-worthy novels I’ve read so far. Now, I tend to read a lot of the same author, so to save this list from becoming one massive gushing session on all of their books, I’ve chosen to spotlight one book by each author.

You’d think a billion dollars, a professional hockey team and a six-bedroom mansion on the Promenade would satisfy a guy. You’d be wrong.

For seven years Rebecca has brightened my office with her wit and her smile. She manages both my hockey team and my sanity. I don’t know when I started waking in the night, craving her. All I know is that one whiff of her perfume ruins my concentration. And her laugh makes me hard.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant to Read in 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.

I was spoiled for options for this weeks topic. This is why I never set a reading list for each month because I will never stick to them. There were a lot of great books I fully intended to read in 2017, but, as always, life and my mood reading tendencies got in the way. Here are the 10 books I planned on reading in 2017 but never did. Hopefully, I can get to reading them this year.

Also, as this is the final topic that will be hosted by The Broke and Bookish, I just wanted to take the time to give the ladies over there a HUGE thank you for all the time they’ve put into this over the years.
