Top Ten Tuesdays #377: Excited to Get But Haven’t Read Yet

Books I Was SO Excited to Get and Still Haven’t Read Yet 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 kind of think this topic was made for me based on the past two years of my reading life! There are SO many books I was really jazzed up for and they’ve just sat on my Kindle or bookshelf. I feel like I do an okay job of reading my absolute favorite authors’ new releases but anything else just sits there. Even still, I’ve slacked! I broke this into two categories since I don’t really buy new books as much – egalleys I received for review and can’t believe I haven’t read yet, and the books I’ve preordered or purchased that I was pumped for and still need to read. Review Books I’ve adored all of Jenn Bennett’s books but for whatever reason, I didn’t immediately read my review copy of ALWAYS JANE. I think the overall plot didn’t sound as interesting to me and then my friends were saying it was their last favorite of her books. I’m sure I’ll get to it soonish! I would have thought getting a review copy of NOTHING MORE TO TELL would be an instant […]

Top Ten Tuesdays #376: One-Word Reviews

One-Word Reviews for the Last 10 Books 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’ve only read 20 books so far this year (currently 4 behind thanks to a vacation with friends aka no time to read!) so my previous 10 books account for half of the books I’ve read so far this year. I like this prompt but it made me think a little bit harder than I expected. I use a lot of the same adjectives to describe books so I had to think out of the box. Also, found it very hard to keep it to one word! Here are the words I’d use to describe each of these books (top row first, left to right): Unexpected // Chemistry // Happy-Making // Perfection // Fun Yummy // Frustrating // Unique // Unenjoyable // Addicting

Top Ten Tuesdays #374: Bookish Merch

Bookish Merch I’d Love to Own 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 or own a lot of bookish merch anymore. Back when I was first blogging and getting hardcore into reading again, I did buy a lot more book or reading-related merch. I think I’m just trying to not acquire as much stuff around this little house anymore! I did buy some great gifts for my sister for Christmas (and a few bookmarks for me) from Emily Cromwell Designs though. So, with that in mind… Bookish Gift Wishlist from Emily Cromwell Designs Top links: Magnet | Sweatshirt | Bookmark | Bookmark | Sweatpants Bottom links: Flag | Notepad | Bookmark | Blanket | Bookmark

Top Ten Tuesdays #373: Authors I Haven’t Read

Top Ten Tuesdays #373: Authors I Haven’t Read

Authors I Haven’t Read But Want To 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 tough! I feel like I do a decent job of reading at least one book by authors I want to read. It’s harder to think of authors on my TBR where I haven’t managed to read a single one of their books yet. In any case, here’s my list! (1) Mhairi McFarlane is probably the best example of this. I’ve had her books on my TBR since the very beginning of my blogging days. I even managed to buy two of them from the Book Depository (UK versions) because I was desperate to read them… and never did. I have two freakin’ review copies of her books from Netgalley and yep, still have not managed to read a single book by her. Wooooof. (2) Lindsey Kelk has this long, cute-sounding series “I Heart” and I’ve always been intrigued by them. Aside from that, I have three of her books on my TBR. I think this one pictured is even a review copy I have? Either way, I’m definitely sleeping on her books when they sound right up my alley. (3) Marie Rutkoski is one of those authors everyone read (especially […]

Top Ten Tuesdays #372: Freebie

Review Copies on my 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. I usually am decent at keeping up with review copies, for the most part. My reading has been minimal the past 9-12 months though. Because some of my review copies are late (ugh) I thought I would share a roundup of some of the egalleys I have on deck to catch up or read in the near future. If I’m not sharing a review on time, hopefully this spreads the word about these fun books!

These are books I hope to read that are publishing in the spring (or already published in March). Cookbooks Contemporary Fiction Mystery/Thriller or Fantasy

I still did manage to read books by new authors! I barely scraped up ten here but they were all enjoyable reads – I would read more books by each of these authors for sure.
