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 is all about those books we could re-read forever. I don’t re-read a lot (though it’s my goal to do this more), but when I do re-read, I usually go for one of these two categories:

  1. The feel-good contemporary romances. The books that make me smile. The books that make me swoon. The books that make me feel good and always manage to cheer me up, no matter what.
  2. The epic fantasy worlds I adore. For when I really want to escape reality and just live in another world for a while. For when I want to help fight dragons, rebel against evil overlords, go on dangerous heists or save the world, all from the safety and comfort of my couch.

Taking both categories into account, these are the books you’ll most likely find me re-reading:

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:

Ten Books To Read If You’re Looking For Something Unique {Top Ten Tuesday}

Hosted by The Broke & The Bookish

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today is all about unique books!

What actually makes a book unique? Plot, characters, writing style, formatting, POV? A combination of all of the above? While it can be unique in one way, it can be pretty standard in other ways.

For me, all the books below are unique in one way or another. Some I’ve already read, some are still on my TBR. But they all strike me as unique in their own way. They have a unique plot, a unique writing style, a unique narrator, or they are unique in any other aspect. So let’s just get into it!

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday. Today is all about the visuals, because even if we are super imaginative and can perfectly envision everything we read (eh, not always), it’s always nice to just look at beautiful art.

So I would like to talk about a few of my favorite fan artists today. These are artists who are just like us, as in they love to obsess over books. Except, they also have the amazing talent to draw the characters and scenes so beautifully.

Of course, all art belongs to the artists! If you click on the name you will go to their DeviantArt or Tumblr sites where you can see all their art. Be sure to always credit them!
