These are the ten most recent books I’ve read that made me laugh out loud. I keep a Goodreads shelf for this reason – some feel good books, or stories with very funny/clever main characters. I love some banter!

Top Ten Tuesdays #353: Places to Read

Favorite Places to Read Top Ten Tuesdays were started by The Broke and the Bookish and are now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review. I’ve actually posted about this a few times on my blog because I love finding cozy spots to read and talking about them! I think it’s been changed a bit since this post (LOL UGH) so here’s my current updated list, featuring some ooold pics directly from Insta because I’m lazy. On the couch or in bed with my pup This is a more common place I read these days – curled up on the couch with my dog by my side. Lately though, most of my reading has been happening before or after work in my bed. I’ll read my Kindle in the dark before falling asleep or first thing in the morning. I couldn’t find a good picture of reading in bed so we’ll pretend this one covers both spots in my house.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lauren • Bookmark Lit (@bookmark_lit) By the lights of the Christmas tree Reading during the Christmas season is my favorite because our room gets all cozy with the lights on our tree and on the wall. There’s nothing better than a cute holiday romance with […]

Top Ten Tuesdays #352: Secondary Characters

Secondary Characters who Deserve More Love Top Ten Tuesdays were started by The Broke and the Bookish and are now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review. I read a ton of companion series, obviously, and one of my favorite activities is to guess who will get their own books. I also am a big fan of companion spinoffs when it’s obvious that one of the side characters deserves their own love story. Here are some prime examples of that! Deserve Their Own Books/Spinoffs Imani from HOW SWEET IT IS // Imani, the MC’s best friend, is the whole reason for the book and Kate working for Drake. There’s some chemistry between Imani and Drake’s brother, so it would be fun to see these characters all come back in a spinoff/companion book. Multiple characters from SANDCASTLE BEACH // In my review for this, I wrote: “there are at least 3 new characters that totally could get their own books! Two women move to town in this installment and Maya’s brother also returns home. I would love to learn more about any combination of these people in more books ” Sinclair from SECOND CHANCE ON CYPRESS LANE // I know I’m cheating a little here because this a companion series-starter and she could very well have her own book coming next.

Top Ten Tuesdays #350: Deserted Island

Books I’d Want With Me While Stranded On a Deserted Island Top Ten Tuesdays were started by The Broke and the Bookish and are now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review. I am honestly not a big re-reader, so this is a challenge for me! There are a lot of books I’d love to reread someday that I haven’t yet, and a few that I have just because they’re in a series. That’s the most common time I reread a book. I definitely want to cheat and include full series but I’ll be nice and only pick one from each if it’s in a series. This was SO HARD because my memory is so shitty, but I tried to find some recent faves that I would love to reread because they’re super funny or shippy, as well as a few nostalgic favorites that probably wouldn’t get old. For the sake of nostalgic faves… To laugh out loud… For the rereadable swoons…

The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review. I have a Goodreads shelving system that specifically allows for me to track things like this. I haven’t been reading a ton of books in one sitting lately because my reading is terrible but there are plenty of books I HAVE done this with in the past, as well as books where I certainly could have if time allowed! I have the “read in one day” shelf as well as “couldn’t put down” for these two occasions.

Top Ten Tuesdays #347: Reasons I Love Reading

Reasons I Love Reading Books that Made Me Remember I Love Reading Top Ten Tuesdays were started by The Broke and the Bookish and are now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review. I felt a little cheesy sitting here and writing about the reasons I love reading. It’s the same stuff as everyone else – being transported elsewhere, learning new things, having a relaxing hobby, etc. I thought it would be fun instead to share a few recent reads that made me remember how much I love to read. Reading hasn’t been a huge priority for the past year and a half during the pandemic so every once in a while I read a great books that makes me want to get back into it.
