Top Ten Tuesdays #447: Unread Anticipated

Books I Was Super Excited to Get My Hands on but Still Haven’t 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 haven’t done a TTT in a bit but this was definitely made for me. I used my “jazzed up for this” shelf on Goodreads to see all the fun books I was jacked up about and haven’t read yet. Without further ado, here are some of them!

Top Ten Tuesdays #444: Freebie

Freebie: Q1 Favorites! 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 thought a freebie for early April would be the perfect time to share my favorites from the first three months of the year! I have exactly ten favorites if I don’t include one cookbook and one reread that were both 4.5 stars. All of these books fall into the 4.5-5 star range and I’m going to include them in order started from the top – the most fave. (And yes, three of them are novellas lol).

Top Ten Tuesdays #442: Shows/Movies

Movies or Shows That Would’ve Made Great 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 wasn’t sure if I’d be able to do this one but I decided it seemed fun once I came up with my first example 😉 Don’t come at me if some of these shows and movies are already books – clearly I didn’t research before this post and went off vibes! haha. Kaleidoscope I really enjoyed this show on Netflix when it came out. It involves a big heist and apparently each of the episodes (named after a color) can be watched in any order, as long as you watch one specific episode last. Heist books are really fun and adding in some kind of “choose your own adventure” element like this show could be awesome. The Curse Okay so we haven’t finished this show yet but I do think so far it would make for a very weird little book! It’s entertaining and cringey in the classic way of Nathan Fielder. I do think he brings something unique to the performance that could be hard to capture in a book but the premise itself would work, IMO. The White Lotus I love this show – […]

Top Ten Tuesdays #440: Love Freebie

Love Freebie: Books I Hope to 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’ve been slacking at blogging this year but I just haven’t had the creative energy for some reason. Hopefully I’ll get back into the swing of things soon! I haven’t done a Five Star Predictions on here in a while but I thought this would be a good opportunity to use a freebie to share some books I hope to love when I read them this year! These are listed in reverse pub date order – the first book comes out later this year.

Books I Meant to Read in 2023 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 shared my 24 in 24 in last week’s TTT, which featured many books I said I was going to read in 2023, along with a few 2024 releases. I put all of the 2023-must-reads on my TBR cart and took a cute photo, so here’s my answer for this particular TTT!

Top Ten Tuesdays #438: Bookish Goals

Top Ten Tuesdays #438: Bookish Goals

Bookish Goals for 2024 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 wrote my usual bookish resolutions and goals post a few weeks ago but thought I’d highlight five major categories and two specific goals in each. Some may be repetitive from that post but I hope (for the most part) to share a few things I really hope to accomplish this year! General Reading Read 100 books // I had some down years from 2020-2022 and read less than I have in a long time. I finally felt rejuvenated in 2023 and managed to read 115 books (my goal was 80 books). I decided to challenge myself this year to reading 100 books, since I managed to exceed that last year, but also didn’t want to make it too much of a stretch. Focus on Netgalley books and get my ratio up to 75% // I’m currently at 69% and am being incredibly picky about what books I request on there. They really have to be top, highly anticipated reads! I want to, as always, try to read books in the same month they come out (or well before!). I know that there are a lot of backlist reads on there that […]
