Ten Books I Want to Read this Summer

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Now that I’m back, I can do these again too! This week is officialy Beach Reads Week for Top Ten Tuesday, meaning books you want to read on the beach, or those you’ll put in your beach bag and all that. Seeing as I probably won’t go to any beach this summer, though, I decided to just turn it into my top ten books I want to read this summer, which I was planning on making anyway.

So, here goes, in no particular order!

My Ten Latest 5-Star Reads

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s topic is Your Last Ten 5-Star (or 1-Star) reads! I don’t think there are ten books I’ve given a 1-star rating, and the other option is much more positive, so I’m going for the 5-star one. I try to not give too many books a 5-star rating, but then again, what is too many anyway? This list is in chronological order, from newest to oldest, and the last one on the list dates back to early in July last year, without counting any rereads.

So, here are the books I loved most in the past eight months! Prepare for some elaborate gushing.

Top Ten Songs I Wish Were Books

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

I haven’t participated in a top ten tuesday for a while, but when I saw this week’s prompt I was like oh hell yeah – let’s do this! Combining books with music? Right up my alley! It was pretty hard to think of some good songs I think should be turned into books, though, and I basically ended up with a list of some of my favourite songs (plus a few others) since those were the only ones I could think of. Of course, they are also the songs whose stories I know best – and I really would like to see these songs made into books!

So, here’s my list…

Ten Blogging Resolutions for 2016

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

It’s the very first Top Ten Tuesday of the year and the topic is your top ten resolutions for 2016. I’m not a huge fan of resolutions when it comes to my personal life, but I do like to set myself some goals when it comes to blogging, so that’s what I chose to do for this one. Here are ten things I want me or my blog to accomplish in 2016!

Top Ten Best Books I Read in 2015

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

I wasn’t planning on participating in today’s Top Ten Tuesday, but then I saw that the topic was the top ten books you read in 2015, and I thought “well, I can’t let that one pass me by, now can I?”. Although the year isn’t officially over yet – I still have to read four books to win my Goodreads challenge and I’m behind (eeeks) – it seems like as good a time as any to tell you about my favourite books of the year. Of course, I didn’t count rereads, and there will also be two honourable mentions at the end… Oh, and these are in no particular order (as always) and the links lead to my reviews of the novels.

Let’s go!

Top Ten Book to Film Adaptations I Still Need to Watch

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

It’s been four months since I last did a Top Ten Tuesday, so it’s about time I did one again! This week’s prompt is Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I’m Looking Forward To or Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch, and there are so many films I still need to watch, so this seemed like the perfect prompt to ease back into Top Ten Tuesday.

So, let’s go!

Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

After I went to London and came back with eleven books, I kind of put myself on a book buying ban for the time being. And let me tell you, it’s been hard. If it wasn’t for my bank account protesting vehemently, I would’ve gone on a huge book buying binge last week. I NEED Cress and Crown of Midnight and I also want to read more Rainbow Rowell books and and and…

Yeah. It’s been tough.

So, apart from two ARCs and a gift from a friend, this list of last books that came into my possession still dates back to my trip to London. I don’t know how much longer I will be able to contain myself, but I’m pretty sure I can guarantee a book haul some time this summer…

Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far In 2015

toptentuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

It’s been ages since I last did a Top Ten Tuesday! I simply haven’t had the time because of all the university shenanigans (otherwise known as a bachelor’s thesis). But now my holidays have started, so I have all the time in the world again! This week’s topic is my top ten books I’ve read so far in 2015. As of yesterday, I have read 22 books so far this year, so I had to choose just under half of them, which wasn’t that hard since I’ve read some pretty good books! In Goodreads terms, there are four 5-star books on this list and six 4-star books. However, I gave Fangirl 4 stars and can’t remember for the life of me why. In my head it’s definitely a 5-star read!

As always, these are in no particular order (although… the 5-star reads are the first four). The links lead to my reviews of the books.

My Top Ten Favourite Quotes From Books

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

I love this week’s topic! Bookish quotes are best and I’m so glad Goodreads has that awesome “quotes” function. Makes looking for them quite a lot easier! Compiling an actual “top ten” was pretty much impossible for me, though, because I think an amazing book is often just a compilation of some very good quotes. So, I just browsed through my shelves on Goodreads, looking for quotable books that I thought deserved a spot in this top ten. And here it is! As always, these are in no particular order.
