And I’m back! I’m sorry to have missed last week’s Top Ten Tuesday! I just don’t really pay attention to the dads in the books that I read…and therefore was unable to think of ten books to list for that prompt. I will have to go and check out the choices of those who did end up participating! Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads (real and literary) out there! This week it’s all about series we’ve been meaning to start, but just haven’t yet!
Hello everyone! It’s definitely been a while, hehe. For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been traveling through Japan and South Korea from May 10th until tomorrow, and have therefore had absolutely no time to write posts for my blog! There was also an issue involving my 3 prong laptop plug, and the fact that there are only 2 prong plug holes here, haha. When I bought a plug converter for Korea though, there happened to be an extension for Japanese plugs too, so here I am. I’ve been mainly chilling out for the last 2 days, spending time with my friends before I head back home, because I do not know when I will be able to see them again. Since they’re at work right now though, and I’ve finished packing for now, I thought that I would enjoy a cold glass of water and sit down to write a post for one of my favourite book memes, Top Ten Tuesday!
It’s Tuesday again! Hurray! And this week we will be listing the top ten things that will make us instantly not want to read a book. I was actually thinking last week that it’d be interesting to see the opposite from everyone, and I didn’t think to check then what this week’s theme would be, so imagine my surprise when I finally did check! So hurray! This will be fun.
This week’s prompt is a bit different from all of the Top Ten Tuesday prompts I’ve done before, so this should be interesting! I did not really have time to write this post up this week, but I ended up just making time for it, because I did not want to miss answering this prompt! I hope that it turns out being a good read for all of you!
This one required a little more thinking for me, since I’ve kind of shut off the “thinking hard” part of my brain since I finished school (haha, my brain is taking a nice long, well-earned break okay?!) But I did manage to come up with more than 10 after going through my Goodreads “read” list. I’ll even be doing some honourable mentions again this week, because it was really difficult to pick just TEN!
I tend to be unable to keep up with writing these posts on time. I blame it on the Mondays. Yes, the Mondays are too blame, haha. But seriously, with working two jobs, it’s very difficult to find time on Mondays (especially) to write up a post from scratch! Maybe if the questions were posted in advance it would help? But probably not….because Top Ten Tuesday and Feature & Follow Friday do that and I miss writing posts for those memes too. Anyway, enough blabbering…let’s get to the Musing Monday funsies!
For those of you who don’t know, Musing Mondays is hosted by the awesome Ambrosia every Monday. This is a book blog meme where participants have to answer one of the pre-set prompts of (I’m currently reading…; Up next I think I’ll read…; I bought the following book(s) in the past week…; I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…; I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…; I can’t wait to get a copy of…; I wish I could read ___, but…; OR I blogged about ____ this past week…). And you also have to answer an additional random question which is different every week!
Hurray for Tuesday! …because it’s not Monday, and because it’s also time for Top Ten Tuesday! This week it’s all about authors we’d like to meet, and I thought I’d switch it up a bit and make it more specific, by listing the living authors I’d love to meet. There are many deceased authors I would love to meet if I could, so I may just have to make that list someday as well. I hope that you enjoy my list!
Still so happy that this meme is back! I really do enjoy this one the most, and this week has proven to be another fun list to compile! Top ten books I read in one sitting…and it should come as no surprise that most of these are comics, graphic novels, and manga, haha. I’m really not a fast reader, so it’s very rare for me to get through a full book in only one sitting! There’s a lot more adulting to do nowadays too, so that definitely interrupts the “one sitting” status most often. But anyway, I hope that you enjoy this week’s list, and happy reading to you all!
I’m so glad that Top Ten Tuesday is no longer on hiatus! I didn’t realize how much I would miss this meme until it was actually gone for a good bit! Even though it just snowed here for the last few days (oh Canada), I will pretend it’s “Spring” and complete this week’s prompt with a nice big smile on my face! Haha. Here goes!
