Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today I’d like to focus on one of my own weak spots when it comes to stories, and that is friendship. Because as much as I love a good romance, I think it’s equally important for a story to have great, epic friendships.

Great friendships can carry a story and warm the heart just as well, if not more so than a romance can. They are so important and usually books that feature friendships turn out to be some of my all time favorites. So that’s why today’s post features some of my favorite fictional BFF’s and friend groups. Let me know if you have any other recommendation for books featuring friendships!

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about DNF’ing (Did Not Finish). I have a difficult relationship with DNF’ing. On one hand I am a big supporter of DNF’ing because really, there is not enough time in life, so why spend it on books you’re just not liking? But on the other hand, I rarely DNF myself. Because I always think it’ll get better. Most books take a little time for me to really get into, and I don’t want to lose the opportunity to miss out on a possible favorite book, just because the beginning was a little hard. And honestly, it happens more often than not.

Here are a few examples of books or series I’m happy I didn’t DNF (and yes, there are some surprising books here):

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s topic is all about the books I loved but will probably never re-read. Now, this was a real tough one for me as I’m more of a “I want to re-read all my favorite books and I’ll proclaim my good intentions forever but probably never re-read anyway” kind of girl. If I loved a book, I’ll automatically want to re-read. Even if I may never have the time or be in the right mood again, I’ll still want to re-read. But for the sake of this list, I dug deep and tried to be brutally honest with myself and came up with a few books I’ll probably never re-read. (but hey, never say never!):

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

I’ve always loved travelling. When I was little, it was my dream to see the world. And now I am a part of that adult world, it is still my dream, except now I’m also more aware of the difficulties coming with that dream. Such as money and time. Though I consider myself lucky and have been able to travel to some nice locations already, there are still sooo many travel destinations I want to get to. Luckily there are books, which help you travel the world from the comfort of your couch. And sometimes, they even fire up that travelbug inside of you.

These are ten travel destinations that books helped put on my travel bucketlist (or at least confirmed their spot on my bucketlist even further):
