Top Ten Tuesday

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish, and has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week is Top Ten cozy reads. My usual picks for cozying in with a book is light contemporary or high fantasy.

10. 38251237 Anything by Kasie West. Her books are perfect for a quick, one night read by the fire.

9. COB&B_JKT_100517.indd Children of Blood and Bone – Tomi Adeyemi. Great for a snowstorm when the power is out.

8. obsidian Lux series – Jennifer L Armentrout. Because nothing can warm you up like Daemon Black.

7. Leah on the offbeat Anything by Becky Albertalli. Let her characters entertain you.

6. vampire academy big Vampire Academy series – Richelle Mead. Winter means snowstorms and snowstorms are good for long series.

5. All of this is True All of This is True – Lygia Day Penaflor. Winter is also good to pick up a mystery, bury under blankets, and lose yourself.

4. walk on earth a stranger The GoldSeer trilogy – Rae Carson. Just one of my favourite series.

3. frost blood Frostblood series – Elly Blake. A fast-paced fantasy series.

2. 35098416 When my Heart Joins the Thousand – Aj Steiger. Sometimes a cozy read also means a tearjerker.

  1. harry potter Harry Potter – JK Rowling. The movies always marathon quite a bad in winter so binge reading the book series is a must as well.

Top Ten Tuesday

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish, and has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week is Top Ten platonic relationships in books. I am all over this topic.

10. storm The Merrick Brothers from The Elementals series – Brigid Kemmerer. Sibling bonds are something I love in books and I really liked how unique the bond was in this series. Each brother got his own book so we got to see the bond through many different POVs.

9. under the never sky big Roar and Perry from Under the Never Sky – Veronica Rossi. Best friend goals. Roar is amazing and deserves everything.

8. Raven boys big The Raven Boys from The Raven Cycle – Maggie Stiefvater. The way the bond shifts through the series is so great.

7. Kiss Collector Zae and her friends from Kiss Collector – Wendy Higgins. These girls just seem like a whole lotta fun to hang out with.

6. What If It's Us Ben’s friends/Arthur’s friends from What If It’s Us – Becky Albertalli/Adam Silvera. Both groups were great and had their own dynamics that was fun to read but when they got together, it was amazing.

5. obsidian The Black Family from The Lux series – Jennifer L Armentrout. Sibling bonds and overprotectiveness at its finest.

4. Nyxia The Chosen from The Nyxia Triad series by Scott Reintgen. I’m loving the way some friendships are instant and some are slower.

3. hunger games big Katniss and Prim from The Hunger Games series – Suzanne Collins. They have such an interesting relationship. Katniss is so protective and Prim really grows into her own while Katniss is gone so their relationship changes so much through the series.

2. walk on earth a stranger The Wagon Gang from The GoldSeer series – Rae Carson. This is another one where some friendships were immediate and others took time to foster through the series. The Bachelors were a huge highlight.

  1. harry potter The Weasley Family and Harry Potter from The Harry Potter series – JK Rowling. Harry just fit in with them. He needed them. He needed people who cared about him without conditions. And he was good to them in return.

Top Ten Tuesday

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish, and has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week is Top Ten Thanksgiving freebie. So I’m basically just listing things that are book related that I’m thankful for.

10. Candles. I like to light them when I read.

9. Bath stuff. Bubbles/Salt/etc. I read in the bath.

8. Sequel to look forward to.

7. Authors active on social media. I’d have to travel quite far to go to any conference so when authors are actively replying on social media, it makes me feel more connected.

6. Good adaptations. There’s been a few this year.

5. Friends who read. It’s always better when there’s someone you can talk with about the book.

4. Time to read. It’s been harder to find the time so when I can, I appreciate it more.

3. Empty spaces on my bookshelves.

2. New books!

  1. My followers. I’m sorry I’ve been slacking on reviews and other content. It’s been very busy and I’m having a hard time getting my thoughts out. I promise to post plenty of reviews once things are better.

Top Ten Tuesday

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish, and has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week is Top Ten bookish things I’d like to own

10. A bookshelf that I can pull down from my ceiling. I’m short so all that extra headspace is just a waste. Let me use it for something good.

9. Barring that, an extra room for a library.

8. Bookish scarves. I do own a couple but I can never have enough!

7. Bookish shawls. I’ve seen the huge ones that have fantasy maps on them. I want!

6. A mood light that will change depending on how my feelings are while reading. Also good for letting others know when I am not okay so stop asking.

5. A bookish bed spread. I need a new one anyway.

4. A bookish hat that will actually look good on my head.

3. Some cool bookends. The ones I have are a little boring.

2. Waterproof books. I love reading in the tub but also love the feel of an actual book.

  1. Infinite time to read!
