Top Ten Tuesday: 2016 Releases I Totally Meant to Read but Didn’t

Hey guys! Today’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the folks over at The Broke and the Bookish as usually, is basically my 2016 shame masterpost. The topic of today’s post was 2016 releases that I totally meant to read, but never ended up getting around to reading. There were quite a few books which I didn’t end up reading, so here is my list of shame:


Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

This was one of the books I was really intrigued by, but it’s honestly just been sitting on my shelf waiting to be read. I actually did try to read it a little while back, but I got completely sidetracked and never ended up finishing it. Continue reading

Welcome to the first post of 2017 on this blog! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme that’s hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and today’s topic revolves around the debuts of 2017 I’m most excited for. So without further ado, here are my top ten most anticipated debut books of this year:


Caraval by Stephanie Garber

This sounds a little like the Night Circus, which I read about a month ago, so I’m interested to see how the author will tell this story and see how it plays out. I also just love how elegant the cover is for this book.  Continue reading

Hey guys! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the folks over at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is books I wouldn’t mind Santa leaving under the tree, 2016 edition.

Most of these books are actually books I’ve been meaning to get for a while now but haven’t, so without further ado, I present to you my wishlist:


The Start of You and Me (Hardcover)

I’ve actually already read this book, but I’d ideally love to own it in hardcover, since the book is so pretty. I love the cover, and I love the content, so it would be nice for this book to have a place on my shelf. Continue reading

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I’ve Added To My TBR

Hey guys! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by the folks over at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is ten books I’ve recently added to my TBR.

With books I want to read, usually I just add them to my goodreads, since it’s the easiest way to keep track of all of them. It’s really convenient to just have the book info at your fingertips when you’re trying to find a book to read that’s on your TBR. So based off of my goodreads list, here are the ten most recent books I’ve added to my TBR that are currently released):


The Red Necklace by Sally Gardner

15773943

This is a book I saw when I went shopping the other day, and the thing that really caught my eye was the cover. Fortunately, the plot seems pretty interesting and I love the fact it’s set in the French Revolution. Hopefully, the book itself is pretty good too. Continue reading

Hey everyone! Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish meme that is created and hosted by the folks at The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s theme is centred around books for a particular book club, and in honour of the genre I’ve been reading a lot lately, I’ve decided to do YA contemporary. Without further ado, here we go:


Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

16068905

I still stand by the fact that this is the one contemporary YA that everyone needs to read, especially since the book itself is premised around a fangirl.  Continue reading

Top Ten Tuesday: Books Read Because of Recommendations

resized

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is based on Books I’ve read because of people’s recommendations, mostly from people I know in real life. Actually, I’ll be honest and say that most of these recommendations came from one person. So without further ado, here’s some books that I was recommended to read:


Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan

28187

My sister actually recommended me this series when I was about 8, but I remember I refused to read it because I thought it’d be totally unrelatable. I picked it up a few years later, and I was obsessed. It’s hilarious and educating at the same time, something that I really appreciate about this series. Continue reading

Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Spring TBR

Hey guys! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by the folks over at The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is a pretty easy one – books on my Fall Spring TBR.

Recently, I’ve been really into reading contemporaries, mostly because I haven’t had the time to commit to long fantasy series since I have exams coming up in three weeks. Most of these books I’ll probably read after exams, but here’s some of the books that I want to get to in the next few months:


It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

27362503

I’ve been wanting to read this book since it came out, and now it’s sitting on my bedside table like a guilt trip. I finished Maybe Someday, so I figured it’d be good timing to read this soon. Continue reading
