Top 10 Tuesday: Places in Books I’d Love to (and not!) Live

A weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

I’m really falling off the blog train here, but I wanted to post this week’s T10T post because I really like this topic. But I’m also doing a twist and mentioning some I know I would absolutely never survive in. 🙃

December ’20 Wrap-up and Book Haul!

If I haven’t said it yet, Happy New Year and welcome to 2021! I was on holiday break for 2.5 weeks and spent a lot of time trying to catch up on my Goodreads reading goal (but I didn’t reach it). Because of that, I’m pretty sure I read more books last month than any other months in 2020.

A special shoutout to historical romance and new adult romance for helping me reach that goal, LOL. (As you’ll soon see.)

Also, apparently I didn’t do a wrap-up and book haul for November… So… oops! Sorry if you were looking forward to that.

WWW Wednesday #26

Apparently I didn’t write one of these for October so… here I am, writing one for November! 🙃 I think I said before that October seemed like such a long month, and now it seems like November is flying by. Time is a weird concept. Okay, I’m babbling. Let’s just get to it. 🤪

WWW Wednesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words. In this post I will answer the following questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Top 10 Tuesday: Book-to-Screen Adaptations I Want

A weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

We all have our own unique opinion on what makes a good book adaptation. I don’t watch a lot of TV (I don’t have cable), but I do have a few streaming services like Netflix, Disney+, and Amazon Prime. However, I find myself sinking into a book rather than a TV show and surely I’m not the only one?

I will say that once the pandemic started and I was working from home, I binged a show called “Call the Midwife” since it was available on Netflix. I don’t regret it because the show is so good.

Anyway, we’re not here to talk about my personal TV habits (as Isabelle from Animal Crossing remind us).

Top 10 Tuesday: Favorite Books from the Last 10 Years

TTT-Big2
A weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Writing this I feel…old, lol. I don’t quite think I was reading a lot of YA ten years ago; I really just read whatever sounded good.  Of course, that’s really how I read today, too. Anyway, today I’ll feature some of my favorite books that were published the last 10 years, but not necessarily ones I read during that year.

This list is probably way longer than you think it is, but stick with me.

T5W: (SFF) Book Series I Always Recommend

This is a spin on the actual topic which is “Books to Give _______ as Gifts.” The blank can be filled in with whatever you want… “Books to Give Parents as Gifts.” “Books to Give a Hufflepuff as Gifts,” etc. I wanted to do this spin because when people are asking for recommendations, I almost always recommend the following books. With Christmas around the corner, it’s really the perfect time to give them all as gifts!

Top 5 Wednesday: Characters on the Naughty List

I think I’ve done something fairly similar… Or maybe when I see this topic, all I can think about are villains? (I did make a Top 10 Tuesday post about villains a while back…) But I supposed this list could focus on general crappy characters, not necessarily villains.

So let’s do this!

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly blog meme started on Goodreads. You can check out the group and the topics here.
