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)!

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!

Top Ten Tuesday (#29): Ten Books I Struggled to Get Into But Ended Up Loving

toptentuesday2Oh my goodness. It’s been so long since I’ve made one of these Top Ten Tuesday posts! They went on hiatus for a while, and when they came back, I was just too busy with other things. The themes also didn’t really inspire me. Usually when I would complete the Top Ten Tuesday posts, I would start making a list in my head the moment that I saw the prompt! This didn’t happen for me with the last few prompts, but kind of did for this one? So, I thought, why not get back into it now? I should be reading right now, but really want to be writing in stead, for some reason. Woops.

Happy #ARCstravaganza day everyone! How was everyone’s weekend? Or did your weekend not end yet because you get a long weekend like me? Hehe. I’ll probably be working anyway though. Back to the event though, the book that I picked for this week was actually surprise book mail! I had requested it months ago, but hadn’t heard anything back, and therefore assumed that I hadn’t been approved. But surprise! It came in the mail anyway, haha, and it is gorgeous!

Monthly Wrap-Up (August 2017)

tumblr_ms9a56yZkR1sfyf8ho1_500I’m sorry guys, but Jin was too busy to send out kisses this time around. Also, I really wanted to use an autumn-themed GIF! And what can be more autumn-themed for me, than a pumpkin and a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte?! Well, maybe a few things. Or many things. But, these are two out of the many things that I love about autumn. I also love Fall fashion, bundling up with a cup of hot tea and a good book. Alright. On to the re-cap!

Welcome to the last My Lady Jane readalong discussion! Yes, I know, I’m sad too! I really enjoyed this month of reading MLJ and discussing it with all of you.

But at least I know that I can dive into the next readalong that I’m hosting (which some of you have also joined already, yay!), so there’s that. Anyway, on to the discussion!

If this is the first time you’re hearing about this readalong, you can read the announcement and sign-up post here!
