I’m not good at TBRs. I imagine I’ve said that multiple times before but it’s true. 😛 I’m much more of a mood reader, but I will say that seeing a physical list of what books I need to read definitely help me realize what I need to focus on and what I can have fun with. 🙂
It’s sort of eerie how often I’ve mentioned that we’re halfway done with 2019 and then blog topics like this arise! Wasn’t I just writing one for the first half of the year? Maybe I imagined that, lol.
Just so you know, it’s difficult to pick only 10!
Initially, I started this post as a “Books to Movies” theme, but the more I thought about it, the more I think so many good books would make great TV series, too, because I feel like TV series has the chance to explore the characters and story more.
I wanted to do my own little twist on today’s Top 10 Tuesday post, which is a general “favorite quotes” post.
Y’all know how much I love The Winner’s Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski. I reread the series at least once a year, and every time I find something new about the books to enjoy. With the release of Rutkoski’s next book, Fall Like Thieves, next year (January 2020) which is set in the same universe as The Winner’s Trilogy, I thought it would be so fun to do this. 🙂
If you haven’t read the series, this post will most likely contain spoilers, so please read at your own risk.
Now this is definitely a throwback! I’m going all the back to the reviews I posted on Goodreads, before I even considered starting a blog! Let’s see how cringe-y these reviews actually are. 😛
I say I’m a mood reader and while that’s still quite true, there are a few things that will always make me pick up a book. Most of these are books filled with tropes I love, but other than that, this post might be all over the place.
Also, let’s see if I can come up with 10… (Spoiler: I can’t.)
I’ve said so many times that I don’t do TBRs since I’m a bit of a mood reader. However, I have fair amount of ARCs (digital and physical) that I need to get through, so this will most likely be what my TBR consists of.
Technically, the topic is standalone books that need a sequel, but gosh, there are finales of series that I think also need another book because I just want more, and sometimes an author leaves things pretty open-ended. I know most of crave for standalone books, but sometimes those books need answers! But also, this is mostly me, my wishful thinking, and just how fun it would be to have another story with these characters!
I also did a twist on the topic all the way at the bottom, so check that out too! 🙂
I imagine this has something to do with Valentine’s Day on Thursday, but I’m not complaining. Any time I get to gush about my favorite literary couples… I’m down!
Warning: This post may contain spoilers if you haven’t read the books! Read at your own risk!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. You can check out the topics for the next few weeks here. You don’t have to do ten (I know that can be hard), but even 5 or 15. Really, it’s whatever makes you happy. 🙂
Now for this topic… It was bit of a struggle because I actually had to go look at my Goodreads “want to read” shelf, and man… I have 16 pages worth of books on there! How did that happen? So after this post, I’m going to purge my pile a little bit.
