I was tagged in the blogger aesthetic award by Sydney from Sydney’s Shelves. This is a super fun tag where you make a little graphic of images that represent you. I will warn you that I am not a super aesthetic person, preferring functionality over appearances so this will be interesting.
This week’s top ten tuesday topic is Summer Reads. The only problem with this topic is that where I am in Australia it’s winter. However the thing I associate with summer reads is a really fun and positive book so that is what I will be recommending today. And after my exams fun and uplifting reads are exactly what I need.
This is basically a list of books I plan to read after my exams or have read during exams before because that asks for a very specific type of book.
I was nominated for this award by Ellyn from allonsythornraxx thanks you so much. (and I’m not just saying that because I have to). I’m excited to answer your questions.
Also, sorry I have been missing for a little while guys. My exam week has been tough but I am looking forward to returning with regular posts from now on.
This week’s top ten tuesday topic is things on our reading wishlists, things you want to see more of in books. Book genres / tropes do tend to go through trends as they years pass. There was a while where paranormal fantasy was a big thing, then urban fantasy, then dystopian. I’m not really sure where we’re headed next but her are my hopes for the next few years in reading.
This week’s top ten tuesday topic is a cover freebie (top ten tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish) and I am super excited. Anyone who is a regular reader of my blog knows that I LOVE looking at the different covers of books when I do my book reviews. So I thought I’d take the opportunity to look into some of the alternate book covers for some books I’ve already read and don’t have reviews for, covers that I otherwise wouldn’t be able to share with you. A lot of these are books you may have heard me talking about before but honestly I could go on about covers all day so I’ve tried to focus on the best of the best, the books that you guys reading this post will probably know of.
Strap yourselves in, this is going to be a long post with many pictures.
I had high hopes for this month because I had my holiday, however I didn’t actually get much done. Preparing for exams at school once I go back, participating in camp nanowrimo and trying to relax all at once meant I did each thing by half. I didn’t get as much blogging/writing/reading done as I had hoped, but at least I did something. I know it isn’t quite the end of the month yet, but this is just the best time for this post and I doubt I will get too much more done.
For the future, well my exams are coming up in a couple of weeks so I am going to try to get a lot of posts written before then do I don’t need to worry about it but we all know how I am with writing posts in advance. I am hoping to get up some book reviews for books I have read in the past little while so be on the look out for those.
Also note, you can click on any of the covers to go to that book’s goodreads page.
The Top Ten Tuesday topic for this week is things that make you not want to read a book. What things can someone say that make you go “nope” and avoid that book for all eternity. I know there are some, but I don’t know whether I will make it to ten. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish so go check them out.
There are a lot of things that people can say when describing a book that will make me HAVE to read that book. People who know me are able to use these buzz words to get me to read pretty much any book. It’s kind of a problem because sometimes that means I go into the book with vastly different expectations from what the book is actually about. It can also mean that I like the book far more than other people do because it has a theme or trope that I like. This is the top ten tuesday topic of the week (from The Broke and The Bookish) so read on to learn more what you can say to get me to read a book.
Monthly recommendations is a goodreads group started by Trina from Between Chapters and Kayla from Kayla Rayne. The topic for this month is big books, books with over 500 pages. So if you’re looking for some LONG books to read, you’ve come to the right place because I have a LOT of ideas, often long books are high fantasy so that’s right up my alley. There are a lot of books later on in series that are quite long but I want to try to recommend some that are more from the beginning of series.
