Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about the books I’m just no longer interested in reading. This was a tough one for me because I don’t like to say never. Who knows, I might change my mind and still want to read these later… But for now, I’m scratching them off my TBR.

Note: this is just a personal opinion. If any of these are your favorites, I’m sorry. You can always (kindly) let me know if you think I should keep them on my TBR though 🙂

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Since tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, today’s Top Ten Tuesday is all in the theme of love. I’m a hopeless romantic and I just love love, so I could talke about this topic all year long. However, unfortunately even today, not everybody is lucky enough to be able to express their love freely or to even see themselves represented in (love) stories. So that’s why, in the spirit of love, I wanted to highlight some 2018 releases featuring LGBTQ themes.

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about that TBR again. More specifically, the books that have been marked as to read for the longest time and guess what? I still haven’t read them.

Thankfully Goodreads keeps perfect track of all of it so it was quite easy to compile this list. Though I did not just take the oldest books, as my TBR is in dire need of updating and some books I don’t even know what they are about anymore or some books are just not my taste anymore. And honestly, some classics have been on my TBR the longest but I’m not sure I’ll ever be in the mood to get to them.

So instead, these are the books that have been on my TBR for the longest AND I still feel like I really want to read someday soon.

Books I Can’t Believe I Read Because They Promised Tears & I Read Them Anyway {Top Ten Tuesday}

180130 TTT Books I Can't Believe I Read

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

Today’s all about books I can’t believe I read. More specifically, I can’t believe I read them because the blurb promised me tears and sadness and tough topics and most of the time, I avoid those like the plague and go for the feel-good books instead. Most of the time, but then some times I just find myself picking up one of those heartbreaking books anyway, and end up crying my heart out. And I don’t mean crying like “Oh, my eyes got a little watery at that scene”. No, I mean full-blown snotty nose, red face, ugly-crying. And guess what? I still loved every single one of these books so, so much, despite the tears.

So here are some of my fave books I can’t believe I even read because they promised tears:

Series I Want To Continue But Need To Re-Read First Because I Have Goldfish Brain {Top Ten Tuesday}

180129 TTT Series I Need To Re-read

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

Today’s topic is about books I like but can’t remember much about. Which, for me, is basically over half of all books I read over 5-6 months ago. Now, usually this isn’t much of a problem. EXCEPT when I want to read a series and there is a WHOLE YEAR or more in between books. Though I remember big lines, all the finer details and elements that make up the intricacy of the characters and plot are just… gone. And because I don’t want to lessen my reading experience, that means I need to re-read. See why I prefer binge-reading series?

Anyway, here are some examples of series which I really do want to continue, but that I first need to re-read because I have goldfish brain:

My 2018 Bookish Resolutions {Top Ten Tuesday}

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today is all about those bookish resolutions.

Now, I do love me some resolutions, but after my huge 2017 reading and blogging slumps, my major goal for 2018 is to take it easy. To avoid another slump at all costs. This means I am not taking part in any reading challenges yet, and am setting my Goodreads goal lower as well. And it is noticeable in my resolutions below. Other than my Goodreads goal, I’m keeping all of this kind of vague and balancing them with resolutions to not worry about those resolutions. It kind of makes sense though, I promise!

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today I’m putting all my shame out there and presenting you with the twelve books I totally meant to get to in 2017, but didn’t… (and the worst part is that I had to cut down this list so badly just to get to only twelve… *nervous laughter*)

Hi everybody and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s all about my favorite authors I discovered in 2017. I’m kind of a creature of habit and don’t often pick up books by authors I don’t really know but I’ve been working on that. Even so, I didn’t think I’d get to ten, but I did easily so yay me!

Also, 100 points for you if you can already guess my MOST FAVORITE OF FAVORITES, my most dear author discovery of the year before scrolling to the bottom of this post 😉

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

Today’s all about our bookish wishes for the Holiday season! Now, obviously the biggest joy about the Holidays is spending time with family and loved ones (well, it may not be for everybody, but I actually do love family gatherings. Mostly.) and soaking up the festive atmosphere. But I can’t deny that getting presents is also part of the fun. Bookish presents especially. I’m actually pretty easy to shop for since I make my wishlist months in advance *oops*.  So here are a few of the books that are on this years’ wishlist for Santa!
