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.

Top Ten Tuesdays #439: Meant to Read in ’23

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

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 […]

Top Ten Tuesdays #437: Anticipated

Most Anticipated Releases: First Half of 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 love writing this post each year! I always get so rejuvenated reading-wise when the new year begins, which is so funny because I usually don’t care much about resolutions and NYE stuff. Nonetheless, here are the books I’m excited to read through June of 2024! January February March April May June

Top Ten Tuesdays #436: Favorites

Favorites of 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 made a couple of graphics for Instagram to highlight my favorites, so I thought I would share them here! I had a great reading year as you would have seen yesterday in my stats wrap-up. Of the 115 books I read, only 11 of them ended up with five stars. The first graphic has my five-star reads of the year. It absolutely pains me that I couldn’t add one more book on this one but I’ll take what I can get. This graphic was a little competition between favorites from each month this year. I knew which book was going to take the crown as my #1 favorite this year. I wanted to share this as well because it shows a few books I gave 4.5 stars and were therefore not on my five-star list above.

Top Ten Tuesdays #435: Recent Additions

Recent Additions to my Bookshelf 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 the books I hope Santa brings last week and I’ve already gotten a couple of them! I know I may get one more from my dad (EMILY WILDE) but I’m going to write this post before Christmas 😉 I also decided to do both physical and digital bookshelves so I could show some of the egalleys I’ve received lately. Egalleys I’m really excited for these new egalleys! Two of these are longtime favorite authors (Kieran Scott – literally a preteen favorite of mine when she wrote as Kate Brian – and Emma Lord). Lauren Kung Jessen is a promising new favorite. I loved her debut and am even more excited for her sophomore novel. The premise is right up my alley! Purchased Books I did decide to buy the special FOURTH WING edition just for the hell of it because I preordered the IRON FLAME one lol. I bought THE TAKEDOWN and THE GRAHAM EFFECT on the same day at B&N because they were BOGO 50% off. I saw ZERO DAYS at my library book sale for $4 so I just grabbed it even though people haven’t really […]
