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!):

Hi and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s another freebie so I decided to talk about opening lines.

The first sentence in a book is super important. It’s supposed to draw your attention, get you interested, set the tone for the book and get you hooked right away. It should suck you into this new fictional world from the get go. That’s a lot of pressure for one sentence, of course, but it is possible! The proof is in these ten examples:

Books I Wish Had More… Well… More {Top Ten Tuesday}

170207 TTT More

Hosted by The Broke & The Bookish

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today I’d like to talk about a few books I wish had more. Yep. More.

I know, the original idea was to be more specific. Books I wished had more kissing. Books I wished had less tropes. Books I wished had more of something or less of something. But you know, I was wracking my brain for this seemingly easy topic and came up blank. Book blogging blackouts, I guess it happens. So instead I took the topic and vagued it up. Oh yes, I vagued it up and came up with… books I wish had more! Genius, isn’t it? 😉

So these are the books I wish had more. More story. More sequels. More POV. Just… more. Now, when I finish a book I am either completely satisfied with it, or I’m just not. The books below are a combination of both. Some books I was satisfied with, but I’m just a greedy little bookworm and I still want more of the story, more of the characters. And some books I wasn’t that satisfied with but I feel like ‘more’ could easily fix that problem. So let’s get into it!
