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…

Top Ten Tuesdays #349: Read in One Sitting

Books I Read in One Sitting/Day 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 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 #348: Question Titles

Book Titles that are Questions 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 always love the lazy TTTs where I can just scroll through my shelves and quickly find some examples. I also enjoy splitting these into books on my TBR and books I’ve already read, just to give it a little extra something! To Read Read

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.

Top Ten Tuesdays #346: Most Anticipated

Most Anticipated Releases July-Dec 2021 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 will likely be repetitive from my summer 2021 TBR post from a few TTTs ago (because I usually focus on new releases) but at least this is most anticipated through the end of the year. I actually decided to start at December and work backwards to guarantee a bit more variety. I also decided to skip holiday books too, for whatever reason. Here we go! IF THE SHOE FITS by Julie Murphy: new companion series based on “contemporary takes on Disney princesses” /// IN MY DREAMS I HOLD A KNIFE by Ashley Winstead: dual timeline book about a murder on a college campus and its present-day reunion /// THEY’LL NEVER CATCH US by Jessica Goodman: a new girl goes missing and star cross country athletes (and sisters) are at the center of it THE WOODS ARE ALWAYS WATCHING by Stephanie Perkins: the next thriller/horror novel from Perkins is FINALLY coming out! /// YOUR LIFE HAS BEEN DELAYED by Michelle I. Mason: a flight takes off in 1995 and lands 25 years later, while the rest of the world has moved on /// THE HEART PRINCIPLE by Helen Hoang: finally the third installment in this amazing companion romance series! /// THE […]

Top Ten Tuesdays #345: Wishes

Book Wishlist 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 don’t buy a lot of physical books anymore due to lack of shelf space, so I don’t really want to include an actual wishlist like the prompt suggests. I’ll just include the top ten books I hope to own or want to buy at some point! Some may be preorders too 😉 ALL CLOSED OFF still doesn’t even have a pub date – no clue what’s happening there… but I still want to own it!

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

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 […]
