Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Let’s be real for a minute: winter is not my favorite time of the year. In fact, I’m one of those people who wish they could just hole up inside of the house for the duration of winter. Or go somewhere sunnier. Anything to escape winter, which has everything I strongly dislike: freezing temperatures that leave me in a perpetual state of chill and feeling like I’ll never ever feel warm again (#dramaqueen), having to get up even earlier to scrape the ice of my car (ugh), too many layers of clothes that I have never been able to combine in a flattering way (need fashion advice on winter survival, stat), having to face my fears of driving in the snow (nightmare), constantly chapped lips and dry hands and endlessly dark days with no sunshine to boost my morale…

Nope, I’m not a fan of winter. Thankfully, there is one bright side to winter and that is the joy of being able to curl up on the sofa, snuggled under a nice warm blanket, cup of hot cocoa nearby and a great book in your hands. Plus, some of my most anticipated books ever are being released this winter, so in a way, I’m also weirdly looking forward to it…

Without further ado, I present to you the books that I’m hoping to be the beautiful highlights of the next few wintery months…

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today was all about backlist books I haven’t read yet, and well, since I’m so terribly behind on books and can’t keep up with my TBR to save my life, I thought it would be fun (haha, fun) to check out some of the books that were on my winter TBR, spring TBR, summer TBR and fall TBR posts for 2018 and I STILL haven’t read.

Join me for another walk of shame and feel free to tell me I really need to get to these soon 😉

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*)

But here we go! Feel free to point out the books you read and loved and feel like I should absolutely just READ ALREADY.

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!

Procrastination Is My Middle Name — Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start Forever {Top Ten Tuesday}

170620 TTT Series I've Been Meaning To Start

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

Today is all about procrastination. I’m actually pretty good at making a plan and sticking to it. But when it comes to books… there are just too many that I want to read and I get distracted easily by shiny new books. The result is of course that there are a million series which I’ve been meaning to start… but haven’t. For some I’ve even already purchased the first book. For some I’ve even already purchased the entire series (*cough* Heroes of Olympus *cough*). And still… no reading is being done. Even though I keep saying I’ll read them next.

So consider this my post of shame and let me present to you: the ten series I’ve been meaning to start FOREVER (but haven’t)!

Behold My Failure! (AKA Ten 2016 Releases I STILL Need To Read. And I Will!)

Hosted by The Broke & The Bookish

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! If last week was all about looking ahead to the shiny new books we are anticipating, today it’s time to get those feet back on the ground and think about all the books from 2016 we STILL haven’t read.

Now, I have a huge backlist. It’s one of my goals to get more older releases read, instead of getting distracted by the sparkle of new books (buuuut, they’re so shiny and I NEED THEM too!). Ahem. We’ll see how well I do this year. Here is a selection of ten 2016 releases I STILL need to read. And I will. I promise. Just as soon as…. oh hey a new shiny book!

Hosted by The Broke & The Bookish

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday. Today’s Top Ten is about all the books I wouldn’t mind Santa leaving under my tree. Though, honestly, these are not ALL the books… In fact, I actually have a Holiday wishlist of about 50 books. And basically nothing else. Clothes? Meh. Food? Close. But books? Yes, please! (Of course, just spending time with my loved ones is a pretty cool aspect about the holidays as well)

Anyway, these are the 10 books for which I’m crossing my fingers the hardest. These are the 10 books I am craving the most and would be super thrilled to see under my tree. In no particular order:
