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).

T5W: Books I’ve Read Because of #bookstagram

I’ve always been an avid reader, but I wasn’t much of a collector. That is, until I joined the lovely community of readers on Instagram (also commonly referred to as #bookstagram and #bookstagrammers). I joined over 2 years ago, and wow, it’s been a great way to connect with other readers and to see how seriously talented photographers fellow bibliophiles are!

Anyway, I thought this was a fun topic because there are so many books I’ve picked up since I’ve seen them on Instagram–definitely some I would have never bothered to read otherwise!

T5W is a Goodreads group. You can check out the topics or join here.

Top Ten Tuesday: New-to-Me Authors I Read for the First Time in 2016

Yay! So I’m back to regular blogging now that NaNoWriMo is over! I’m currently working on a non-bookish post about my progress with NaNoWriMo and other things so keep an eye out for that soon!

Gosh, guys, I can’t believe it’s December already! I know people say that all the time but seriously, it’s almost Christmas! This makes me both excited and shocked that 2016 went by so quickly. But with the passing of December also comes January and… My birthday! I’ll be 28 in a little over a month. That’s crazy to think about to.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Read because…

Technically, this is supposed to be “books I read because someone outside of the book community recommended it to me.” Truthfully, I don’t know a lot of people I read so no one’s really recommending series to me… I picked up so many books due to starting a bookstagram a little over a year ago. Without that community, I wouldn’t have picked up half of the books I currently love.

Top Ten Tuesday: All about Audio(books)!

TTT was created by the Broke and the Bookish. Check out the other topics and don’t forget to leave your TTT so I can check it out! 🙂

So today’s TTT is all things audio. I could do 10 favorite audiobooks, albums, songs, bands, podcasts, whatever really. I’m going to focus on audiobooks. They don’t seem to get enough love but all the ones I’ve listened to are so good! And they really do a great job filling up the drive to and from work and home for me.

Review: “Morning Star” (Red Rising #3) by Pierce Brown

Ah, I can’t believe this series is over! It’s been a long and good ride. A series I wasn’t sure I would enjoy because of the genre but I ended up loving it and so glad I did read it. I’m excited that Brown is writing another series in the same world (Iron Gold is expected to release sometime next year).

I tried to do a spoiler-free review but I may have gotten carried away. No .gifs this time though! XD
