How exciting! The first Top Ten Tuesday of the new year. Of course, there wouldn’t really be any other way to start this but to look at some of the debuts coming out this year. I hope you had a lovely new year and Christmas, et cetera, and are perhaps enjoying a final few days of rest before trundling back off to work!
Welcome, welcome! It’s time for another glorious TTT post on another glorious (well I hope so) Tuesday. This week’s topic is a good one – basically I’ll be looking at some new releases for 2017. I can’t wait to see them all when they’re realised because I’ll be in America which means they’ll all be in hardback *squeals*. Americans, count yourself blessed that you have all the hardbacks at your fingertips.
I really like all the prompts for the book memes at this time of year – it’s always exciting reviewing your reading year from different angles! I hope everyone is having a great start to their week – my graddad is arriving from Ireland this evening so everyone’s getting really excited for him to be here!
Well hello, you. Did you know, I am now a lady of luxury. I have recovered from my exhaustion of having finished uni (FOREVER) and am now getting into the swing of doing absolutely nothing. I also just finished series four of Call the Midwife and MY HEART. Which is fitting, because today, I’m not going to talk about books. Well, just a little bit.
You might be somewhat surprised to see me doing a TBR post – I have a general rule that I don’t make TBRs. HOWEVER, since I have reassessed my situation I’ve decided I need to have a self-inflicted intervention and make a TBR. And you have the absolute pleasure today of seeing the result of this meeting. Grab your tea, ladles and jellyspoons, the fun is about to start.
I hope I find you well and being generally fabulous, because there truly is no other way to be. I’ve got a great topic for you this week, I can’t wait to make the list and confront my fears. It’s going to be like a therapy session, but with myself. I hope you like it because right now I really should be writing those final essays . . . but you know, *awkward laugh*. Ahem: ONWARDS.
It would seem that I’m entirely unable to actually stick to the topic for Top Ten Tuesday. Not only this week have I given up the pretence of racking my brains trying to think of appropriate books, but I’ve flat out created by own list to make. Because what fun are rules if you actually follow them. So, if you have kids or other miniature humans that you’re acquainted with I shall say YOU ARE WELCOME in advance, because I’m about to sort out Christmas for you.
