Top Ten Tuesdays #344: Summer TBR

Summer TBR 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. Man, I don’t feel like I should be allowed to make TBRs anymore because my reading is so crappy. I usually like to focus on new releases instead of ARCs I already have. Summer here will be June, July, and August releases. Maybe dip into September. (PS… AS GOOD AS DEAD is out in the US in September but you know I preordered the UK version from Book Depository, which comes out in August. Ya girl can’t wait.) June July August September

Top Ten Tuesdays #343: More Books

Books I Loved that Made Me Want More Books Like Them 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. This week’s TTT is about featuring books that we loved so much that we sought out more books like them. Two books immediately came to mind for this one, which is a decent start. The rest took some investigating but still a solid list here! I actually wrote a whole post about THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO where I requested that people help me find similar books. It just felt so unique to me. FINLAY DONOVAN IS KILLING IT is the second book that came to mind right away. I know it’s sort of a cozy mystery, which I also talked about here (and brings me to my next book), but it was very contemporary-ish as well. It focused even more on her life than the actual murder mystery. The Rose Gardner mystery series, starting with TWENTY-EIGHT AND A HALF WISHES, was another cozy mystery series that I read after loving the Aurora Teagarden movies on Hallmark. I’ve been feeling those books a lot, but the Rose Gardner books are not the best… THE CURE FOR THE COMMON BREAKUP and the rest of […]

Top Ten Tuesdays #342: Freebie

Freebie: Favorite Upcoming Book Covers 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. You can always guarantee that I’ll use a freebie prompt to discuss book covers! I don’t remember if I’ve done this one recently but I thought I’d share it again. I always like featuring books that haven’t been published yet so hopefully people can find new books to add to their upcoming TBRs. Here are ten book covers for unreleased, unpublished books I’m loving!

Top Ten Tuesdays #341: Book Quotes

Book Quotes from… Books I’ve Read Lately 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 have to say, I have been terrible about keeping track of book quotes lately. I used to collect them all the time and make fun graphics for them. The topic for this week is “book quotes about a certain theme” that you can choose yourself. I thought it might be fun to pick a book quote or two that I enjoyed from my most recent reads, since I could hop over to Goodreads and see what others have highlighted 😉 The Ex-Talk by Rachel Lynn Solomon “The thing about losing someone is that it doesn’t happen just once. It happens every time you do something great you wish they could see, every time you’re stuck and you need advice. Every time you fail. It erodes your sense of normal, and what grows back is decidedly not normal, and yet you still have to figure out how to trudge forward.” I remember wanting to highlight a lot of quotes in this one but of course, I didn’t. I really adored this book though. People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry “I’m on vacation. Vacations always end. It’s […]

Top Ten Tuesdays #340: Sentences

Books Titles that are Complete Sentences 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. This is a unique one! Really fun to go through and see what titles may fit the bill. These are all books I’ve already read, by the way.

Top Ten Tuesdays #339: Nature Covers

Books with Nature on the Cover 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. You know I love a cover-related prompt to begin with, but add in the flowers and nature element? Super into it. Some of my favorite covers involve watercolor floral print and other greenery. Here are some recent favorites that include pretty flowers, water/beaches, and other cute nature-based scenes!

Top Ten Tuesdays #338: Recent Reads

10 Recent Fiction Reads 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. Talk about an easy prompt, especially since I just posted my Bookmark Lit Bulletin yesterday. I read 9 books total in April so I thought it would be a little lame to include those, plus the one book I’ve read in May. I decided to go back a little bit further by choosing only the 10 most reason fiction books I’ve read… so basically eliminating a few cookbooks lol.

Top Ten Tuesdays #337: Animals

Animals from Books 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 wish I previously tracked things like this (animals in books that I love) but my love for dogs is more recent, since I’ve gotten my cutie boy. I thought I would pull a classic Lauren here and focus on books with dogs on the COVER. Generally that means there’s a dog or two inside as well. I’ve read the majority of these but some where just books that came to mind or were in my Goodreads scrolling as I put this together. I’m making the cover images larger so you can see some of the tinier cute puppies 😉

Top Ten Tuesdays #336: Colorful Covers

Colorful Book Covers 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. You can always count on me to eagerly put together a TTT about book covers! I like that this one is somewhat up to interpretation. I thought I would go through, like with the Crayola post I just did, and pick favorites with a ton of pretty colors and/or rainbow-ish covers.

Top Ten Tuesdays #335: Crayola

Top Ten Tuesdays #335: Crayola

Books as Crayola Crayons 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. The prompt for this week is to think of book titles that could be crazy Crayola crayon colors. They have so many weird ones. I thought the best approach would be to look on my Goodreads shelves for existing colors in book titles and go from there. When I ran out and didn’t want to repeat too much, I thought of other color-like words (moonlight, sunshine, etc.) and filled in some gaps! All of the colors below next to the colors were pulled directly from the book covers. (If you enjoy things like this, check out my favorite feature I need to resurrect – Cover Colors!) Words in Deep Blue: a deeper, not yet navy, shade of blue Serious Moonlight: light yellow shade of moonlight Once Upon a Wine: a burgundy shade like red wine Blackberry Summer: black like the berries Across the Green Grass Fields: grassy green fields Little White Lies: “dark white” aka lighter gray Orange is the New Black: a dark, deep orange Hello, Sunshine: bright, vibrant yellow shade Nantucket Blue: an ocean-esque blue color Nantucket Red: dark red sky for sailor’s delight
