171205 Fictional Settings I'd Love To Visit

Hosted by The Broke & The Bookish

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

One of the (many) joys of reading is being able to discover so many beautiful new places, without even having to set a foot outside the door. However, sometimes the places just sound so absolutely wonderful that we wish they could be real so we could visit them (maybe even live there) for real. For me, that’s totally the case for the following ten settings from books, movies, or tv:

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Winter is coming! And with that comes also: a Winter TBR. Which, in my case, is a lot of my rest of the year TBR which I haven’t gotten to yet. Plus a few new releases. But really, given my major reading slump which lasted most of summer and fall, it’s mostly backlist on this TBR.

Let’s get to it!

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

In honor of Thanksgiving week in the US, today is all about being thankful. More specifically, what books we are thankful for.

Now, I’m thankful for a lot of books. For lots of reasons. So narrowing this down was… tough. I decided to split it into categories as to why I am thankful for a book in particular, which came a little easier for me. But I would just like to note that some of these books definitely fit into more than one categorie. And I am probably forgetting a lot of books as well. But anyway, here it goes!

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about the books I’d love to read with my future children. To be honest, my knowledge about children’s books is rather limited because A) I don’t have any kids yet so I’m not yet in the habit of reading children’s books with them and B) I myself mostly read books by Belgian authors as a kid which will probably not be that known to you. For those reasons I decided to broaden the age of those (hypothetical) children from kid to young adult and present you a list of books I’d want them to read for a variety of reasons.

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s topic is all about fictional characters who would make great leaders. I’m putting a little twist on the topic and changing it to characters who would be great social media trendsetters. If these characters would be on social media, I’m pretty sure they would quickly amass quite a following in their particular niche. So here they go:

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Also, HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Halloween’s by far my favorite day of the year (which doesn’t even have anything to do with that small fact that it’s also my birthday…) and even though I’m working today, I’m planning on spending a cozy Halloween night in front of my tv with lots of candy and a Stranger Things binge-watch session. (#heaven).

But of course I also love the Halloween related blog topics during the Halloween season (yes, it’s a season). Today’s topic is a Halloween freebie and I decided to bring back one of my old faves: supernatural creatures, or creatures of the night! (inspired by the Creatures of the Night book tag by Katytastic)

To be fair, I’m a bit behind on books featuring supernatural creatures lately, but just making this list has got me in the mood again. So please, give me all your recommendations for great books featuring some of those creatures of the night!

In the meantime, here are some of mine:

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today is all about book titles. I can imagine that coming up with a great, unique title for a book is one of the hardest things out there. Because, no matter how much I love those titles with kings, queens, princes or princesses in them, they’re not exactly inspired either. But once in a while, there are books out there where the title alone draws you in. No matter the cover or the content. Sometimes that bookish love at first sight happens purely based on the title.

That’s what happened with me and the following books!

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today is all about those fictional crushes! You know, those characters that you love and adore and get under your skin so much you wish they were real? Exactly, who I’m talking about here! Now, I did a top ten fictional crushes not too long ago, so for this topic, I decided to veer off a bit and explore some of my TV crushes in particular.

The TV crushes I mentioned in my previous Top Ten Tuesday, Pacey Witter (Dawson’s Creek) and Bellamy Blake (The 100), are of course still very high on my fictional tv crush list, but to switch it up a bit, I present to you: ten MORE fictional tv crushes! (Also, yes, there are plenty more where they came from. I love a lot of fictional characters, okay?)
