Top Ten Tuesdays #388: Fall TBR

Fall TBR – New/Upcoming Releases 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. As usual, I like to make my seasonal TBRs for TTT about the new and upcoming releases within that season that I hope to read. I traditionally don’t include review copies I already have or already published books. I’m going to focus on upcoming fall releases that I am likely to read during the fall (so the Christmas books publishing in October won’t be on here, for example). This TBR will focus on books that are coming out primarily in October and November. October November

Top Ten Tuesdays #387: Geographical Titles

Books with Geographical Terms in the Title 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 love TTTs where I can do some Goodreads keyword searching and call it a day! I know I’ve read a lot of books (especially by RaeAnne Thayne, weirdly) that include things like “cliff” or “mountain” or whatever. Lots of options to share here! I tried to pick unique words for all 10.

Top Ten Tuesdays #386: Old Faves

Books I Love Published 10+ Years Ago 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. It’s wild to think that 2012 was 10 years ago. Good lord. I went through my favorites shelf on Goodreads to pull these babies. They were all published in 2012 or earlier.

Top Ten Tuesdays #385: Funny Book Titles

Funny Book Titles 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 took the “funny” book titles route instead of “hilarious” like the prompt suggests. I think anything with a pun in it is pretty funny, so you’ll see quite a few of those here 😉

Top Ten Tuesdays #384: Settings to Visit

Books Set in a Place I’d Like to Visit 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 few bookshelves on Goodreads based on certain places that I most often love to read about, or just for tracking purposes. One for Connecticut (my home state where I live/grew up and love reading books in), one for Maine (my favorite place where we lived for a year), and one broad “overseas” category. This used to be called “travel international” but I felt like that was implying all of the books were about Americans going to other countries, rather than books just set overseas – now it contains both. I’m going to include a handful of books from my overseas shelf because I still have not had the opportunity to leave the US. The Paris Apartment by Foley (Paris) // The No-Show by O’Leary (England and Ireland) The Weekend Away by Alderson (Portugal) Float Plan by Doller (various tropical islands) // The Hunting Party by Foley (Scotland) // The Twelve Dates of Christmas by Bayliss (sleepy English village at Christmas) // Love & Olives by Welch (Greece) Castle in the Clouds by Gier (Switzerland) // Girls Night Out by Steinke and Fenton (Mexico) […]

Top Ten Tuesdays #384: Seasonal Still Haven’t Read

Books From My (2019) Seasonal TBR Posts I 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. It’s funny, I used my freebie last week for something similar. I focused on determining which books I’ve read or haven’t read from my “most anticipated books releasing a very long time from now.” Spoiler: did not read most of them. For fun, I’ll go back to my last normal reading year of 2019 and see which books I read from my seasonal TBRs… if I do this for 2020 or 2021, I’m sure I didn’t read most of them lol. Unread Books from 2019 Seasonal TBR Posts Spring 2019 – 5 read, 5 unread I managed to read 50% of my seasonal TBR for this TTT – not too bad! I’m not surprised at the books I didn’t read though. I somewhat lost interest in a few of these in general… I kind of think the Julie Buxbaum one is the only one pictured here I would still read! Summer 2019 – 4 read, 6 unread   My Summer TBR for this TTT was primarily books that published that year (I think, from what I could see) but I also included summertime goals […]

Top Ten Tuesdays #383: Freebie

Freebie: Highly Anticipated Books Which Have I 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 used to do posts about books publishing a far, far way away that I was super excited for. I thought first about doing another post like this to feature books in 2023 and possibly beyond, but thought it would be actually fun to call myself out for not reading some of these books I was so jazzed up about. I made two posts (one in 2019 and one in 2020) highlighting books coming out in the far future, so most of them should have published by now. Let’s see the state of my anticipated reads! The titles below are directly from my previous posts, so the titles and pub years may have changed. Books Unread Mary series by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows (2021-3) I’m lame and haven’t started this one yet. These books (the Janies at least) are ones I don’t love or get addicted to until I’m reading them. They’re usually super funny and engaging! I hope to read MY CONTRARY MARY before MY ATOMIC MARY comes out. Ugh. Doomed by Laura Pohl (2021) This book actually became THE GRIMROSE GIRLS, which explains why […]

Top Ten Tuesdays #382: Summer Covers

Book Covers that Feel Like Summer 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 love a cover TTT. I won’t bore you with my usual commentary about how much I love covers but most of these are books on my TBR – the only two I’ve read are the last two books. Here are some fave summery covers!

Top Ten Tuesdays #381: Second Half Releases

Most Anticipated Books Releasing in the Second Half of 2022 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. Last week’s post featured a lot of upcoming summer releases and didn’t include any I have review copies of. I tried to make this list a bit different by going for my ten overall “most anticipated” even if I have an egalley. Here are the books releasing between July and December that I’m most excited to read!

Top Ten Tuesdays #380: Summer TBR

Summer 2022 TBR – New Releases 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 getting pickier with choosing my TTT posts just because I’m lazy and no longer feel the need to do every single one if the prompt doesn’t resonate with me. BUT you can always count on me to bring a TBR to the blog when the time comes! As usual, I’ll be featuring books that I DON’T have as review copies and focus on new releases by month (June, July, and August). There are tons of great books coming out in August apparently but I’m blessed to have some review copies for a lot of them, so you won’t see all of my excitement in this post at least! Mid/Late June July August
