Oh my gosh! Goodreads! Mad! They removed the function that shows you your most read authors. My friends, this is a true tragedy. I simply cannot function without an abundance of statistics. Actually, I think I’ve come to the conclusion that half the reason I enjoy reading is FOR the statistics. What can I say?
Hi everyone! I hope your weeks are treating you well so far. Today we’re looking at something a little different to my usual monthly releases (though I will also be doing that post, too) and casting our eye further afield to ALLLL the big, exciting releases for the second half of 2020.
Can you believe it’s the tenth anniversary of Top Ten Tuesday?!!? That seems so crazy to me to think it’s been going for so long. I started my blog in 2015 (five years ago omg) and Top Ten Tuesday is something I’ve been doing since the very beginning. It’s such a wonderfully fun post and a great way to link together with other people!
We’re looking at Winter TBRs today! Which has inspired me to take a look at what I’m planning on reading for the rest of the year especially with the BLM movement in full force right now. I’ve added many more books to my TBR so I want to make this a list of all the books I’m looking at focussing on in the next six months.
It is OFFICIALLY winter in Australia and brrrr the cold weather is here. Dark mornings and freezing steering wheels are the best things before work, right?? Now more than ever, I really just want a whole MONTH to sit and read books in front of a fire. That would be so nice!
I should be asleep. It’s nearly 11PM as I write this and I’ll be up in about 6 hours for work. YIKES. But I’m way too invested in this post today to give up now. So buckle up kids and enjoy the ride.
If you’ve been with me for a while now, you’ll know that fantasy is my favourite genre. As much as I try to read widely (and though I do read a lot of historical fiction), fantasy is always the winner. I can’t get enough of it!
I very rarely put down a book. I find it so hard to give up on a story because I always wonder if I hang on just a little longer whether it might get better. It’s a work in progress and I think I’m improving because there’s just nothing worse than sticking through a slog of a read, only to find it puts you in a reading slump.
I think exactly none of us are surprised that once again I’m going rogue for this week’s topic. I hope you’re all having a fantastic start to your week! And don’t forget it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday (for those of you in the countries where it is, in fact, Mother’s Day on Sunday).
When I was younger I used to hate reading. You couldn’t make me do it. It was a continuous nightmare for my mother trying to get me to read those tiny prescribed readings that you do in lower primary school. NIGHTMARE. WORDS. EW. And that didn’t really change until high school. Shocking, I know.
