I know this was the top ten tuesday topic last week, but since they’re on hiatus right now I am going to do it this week instead. Note that these might not be books released this year, only ones I have read this year. And I haven’t read that many books so there hasn’t been much to choose from. Also I am cheating quite a bit by combining series.
I saw this tag on Katesbookdate on youtibe (her video) and the original video was created by ReadLikeWildfire on youtube (her video). Plus she’s actually Australia which is super cool and I didn’t know there was such a big Australia booktube community and I am only just finding them so yass. I wasn’t exactly tagged in this… but it seemed like so much fun that I just had to do it. And if you’re a big fan of booktube videos (or new to them) then I do have a post of my booktube recommendations so you should definitely check that out.
So, basically how this tag works is that I write down a bunch of character’s names on pieces of paper and put them in a cup, then I take two out and have to choose between those characters which one best fits the question. On to the questions.
So I am actually really bad at getting as much reading done and I want to. No matter how much I want to read and how many awesome books there are out there I always manage to fill my minuscule amounts of free time in a different way. I get the feeling that if I asked for a show of hands there would be a lot of people agreeing that despite how much they love books, they wished they could read more.
Now if you’re expecting tips or something then sorry to disappoint because I have no idea how to fix this problem myself but I just thought I’d look at the reasons behind this problem.
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.
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.
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.
My TBR is massive ok. Here is my journey in trying to get it to shrink. Hopefully this can help you too.
Yay, another Top Ten Tuesday. Haven’t done one of these for a few weeks because they were on hiatus and I didn’t like a few of the topics. TBH I wasn’t going to do this topic but I am really busy with school work and haven’t been reading many books so this seemed like a good option. Plus the more I think about it, the more there are a bunch of authors I would like to meet. I feel like a bunch of these are going to be super repetitive with the authors other people are writing about but whatever.
