Top Ten Tuesday (#33): Top Ten Yummy Foods Mentioned In Books

                     top-ten-tuesday-halloween-edition

Happy Tuesday and TTT day! This week, we’re all going to leave each other’s posts feeling quite hungry, because this weeks prompt is all about food! Now, if you’re a foodie like me, you will have jumped right to your “read” list on Goodreads and made a top 10 list in no time! Books mention snacks that make me want to try them, or eat them again, all the time! So, I will usually remember which books mentioned which foods, and how badly I wanted to eat said foods, haha. Let’s dig in, shall we?

#ARCstravaganza (#14): Renegades by Marissa Meyer

Happy Monday everyone! And also happy #ARCstravaganza day! I was actually able to schedule this post in advance…because this past weekend was not Thanksgiving weekend, and I wasn’t all thrown off, thinking Saturday was Friday, Sunday was Saturday, and Monday was Sunday. Yeah, I was all confuddled last week and posted my post a day late! Sigh. The shame! Anyway, this week it’s on time, and I’m featuring a book that I’m very excited to have gotten a copy of! I received this book from a good friend of mine, and I’ll just say thank you here again for the millionth time! Hehe.

#ARCstravaganza (#13): Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows

Happy Monday, my lovelies! Or rather, Happy ARCstravaganza day (as I’ve come to call it)! Um wow. So, as some of you may know, Canadian Thanksgiving was yesterday, so most Canadians had the Monday off. Due to working on Saurday (until about 8 pm) and then having Monday off….all day yesterday,  I was under the impression that it was Sunday! I had this post prepped, and just had to add the Insta photo before scheduling it. But I was all out of sorts, and my mental clock is all out of whack! So, here it is today, one day late, because I’m a confused scatterbrain! Haha. Sorry! To learn more about the meme, please continue reading to see the info below, and continue past that to read more about my ARC choice for this week!

Top Ten Tuesday (#32): Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes

                     top-ten-tuesday-halloween-edition

And we’re back this Tuesday with another exciting prompt…Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes! Yes, I know, I love Autumn way too much. But I’m a strong believer that it’s better to fill your life with things that you like and love, than the opposite. Yes. Positivity! My spellchecker is saying that that is not a real world. Too bad. Anyway, this prompt was harder for me to complete than I’d first imagined. When I first saw the prompt over on The Broke and the Bookish I just kind of smiled to myself, cracked my knuckles, and started a search that I thought would be very short and very yielding. I was so very wrong, and in the end, ended up listing a bunch of books that I have not read yet! Some of them are not published yet, sure, but the rest….What’s my excuse? The upside of this adventure, is that I came across some books that I’d never seen or heard of before! But anyway, on to my top ten list!

                     top-ten-tuesday-halloween-edition

Hello everyone, and welcome to my Top Ten Tuesday post for this week! This week’s prompt had me excited a week in advance! I, in fact, created the rough draft for this post last Wednesday or Tuesday, and actually wrote it out on Friday. Hahaha. The tag is top ten book boyfriends/girlfriends and it was so much fun to put together! Continue reading to see who I’ve picked!

#ARCstravaganza (#12): All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

Happy Monday, my lovelies! Or rather, Happy ARCstravaganza day (as I’ve come to call it)! And also, happy October aka. Halloween and Oktoberfest Month! Yaaaay. I love both Oktoberfest (mostly due to having grown up in a Germanic country, Austria), and Halloween for too many reasons to count! I mean…look at the Halloween-e-fied theme on here and on all of my other social media! Haha. I’m a bit obsessed maybe? But that’s okay, I think. You can read about my September wrap-up, and future plans for the blog here. But back to ARCstravaganza!

#ARCstravaganza (#11): When I Cast Your Shadow by Sarah Porter

Happy Monday, my lovelies! Or rather, Happy ARCstravaganza day (as I’ve come to call it)! Also, I would like to wish you all a happy Autumn! Yaaaay. There’s always something special about Fall for me…a mixture of the scents, foods, fashion, cozy reads, candles, hot tea…it’s just great. It’s been a bit tough for me to get into the Autumn mood though, because in my part of Canada, it’s been around 31 degrees Celsius almost every day! They were mentioning heat warnings on the radio, and I was like, this is not the Autumn that I know and love…hahaha. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer, and I would love to get another beach day in there (well, beach day, since I haven’t been to the beach once this summer. I know. Sad). But back to ARCstravaganza! To learn more about the meme, please continue reading to see the info below, and continue past that to read more about my ARC choice for this week!

Top Ten Tuesday (#31): Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR List

toptentuesday2

Hello everyone, and welcome to my Top Ten Tuesday post for this week! This theme, or prompt, is one which has me very excited because…I love Fall! I also thought that it’d be an easy choice, but once I looked at the official start and end dates for Fall, my face kind of fell, haha. Choosing the books on my TBR from September 22 to December 21st…well, let’s just say I didn’t know that Fall lasted that long because I live in Canada, and we get snow by some time in November usually. And when there’s snow on the ground, for me it officially becomes winter. But back to the books! Read on if you’d like to see which books I’m most excited to read for the rest of 2017 (and I’ll be listing them in the order that I’ll be reading them)!

#ARCstravaganza (#10): They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera

Happy Monday once again! I don’t know about you, but this meme is like…the only thing I look forward to on Mondays. Okay, that’s a lie maybe. I love my job, and the work that I do! Honestly. But back to #ARCstravaganza! I’m very excited about the book I’ve picked for this week because I’d been eyeing it since (I believe) sometime last year, before it even had a cover, and then chickened out from requesting it…because it is going to be a sob-fest in my house when I read it. Judging from my feelings regarding the synopsis, and what I have heard from blogger friends, I will be weeping uncontrollably. I might even disappear off social media for a few days! We’ll see. But anyway, I received a copy when I went to Frenzy Presents last Sunday, so now I have to read it! And I am both excited and terrified!

Top Ten Tuesday (#30): Ten Books I Loved During The First Year I Started My Blog

toptentuesday2Soooo, I started blogging in April of 2016. Yes, just last year. But it seems like I’ve been doing this for so much longer than that! I feel like this has been my hobby for as long as I can remember. Very strange, all in all. But anyway, here are my top 10 favourite books that I read in the first year that I started my blog…last year…haha. These are all still current favourites as well, which goes to show just how much I liked them. Maybe I’ll have to take a look back in a year, or 2, or 3, and see how I feel about them then? It would be interesting to do, I think!
