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!

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. I don’t know what I’ll do with myself after this (I wish there was a sequel). 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! I was accepting new participants up to this point, and welcome to all of you who may have joined us since the first discussion! I guess I could accept participants for the next discussions as well? I mean, if you read quick, or are sure that you can catch up, you are welcome to join in and even add to the previous discussions! Just be sure to sign up so that I can keep track of everyone!

It’s finally here! Our first discussion for the My Lady Jane read-a-long! Ever since I started reading this book, I’ve been wanting to discuss it with someone who’s read it, or is reading it too. And I’m so happy that we can all do that now. I don’t know if I could have handled reading this hilarious book on my own, so I’m very very glad that so many of you could join me! And I really do hope that all of you are enjoying it at least half as much as I have been! If this is the first time you’re hearing about this read-a-long, you can read the announcement and sign-up post here! Even though we’re already discussing the book, I will accept new participants as long as you’re sure that you can catch up with us by the next discussion for chapters 9-15 on August 16th!
