Top Ten Tuesday #29: Winter 2017 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, but I couldn’t resist this week’s topic (though I’m a day late with it).

Winter TBR!!!

Umm… so… I’ve neglected my blog for a bit because of the Thanksgiving holiday, but I think I’m back now, and I shall herald my return with a TBR that I’ll probably neglect soon after starting on it. 🙂

Let’s start with the ARCs, which I’ve promised myself that I’ll prioritize:

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic:

Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far in 2017

I was surprised, upon completing this list, to find that I have given exactly 10 books high ratings of 4.5 or 5 stars so far this year. The books are listed below, followed by two comic books that also received high ratings. Rereads were not included.

Top Ten Tuesday #26: Series Starters I Haven’t Started

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic:

10 series I want to start but haven’t

There are many series I want to start and I’ve seen several mentioned in blog posts I read this morning. I tried leaving comments on some, but I think WordPress is blocking me from commenting on posts because none of my comments show up after I submit them. It’s highly frustrating because I’ve already forgotten what I said on those posts. Has anyone else encountered this problem? If so, how did you fix it?

Anyway, here are 10 series that quickly came to mind:

Top Ten Tuesday #25: Summer 2017 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is a summer reads freebie, so I’ve decided to do my

Summer TBR!!

And since this was also the topic for last week’s Top 5 Wednesday, I’ve decided to list 15 instead of the usual 10 books (I’m just looking for a reason to list more stuff), though I hardly ever read what I place on my TBR, smh. Just once it would be nice to complete my TBR list.

Of the 10 books I listed for spring, I read five, one of which I’m currently reading. I guess I should count that as a success since reading 50% of my list is an improvement over the usual 0%. I still would like to read the other five books I didn’t get to so though I won’t list them all here, I’ll keep them in mind as I read through summer.

The plan for summer is to focus on reading my own damn books, so here’s what I plan to get stuck in:

Top Ten Tuesday #23: Short Stuff

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic:

Books that can be read in one sitting, or in a day, or when you’re short on time

Since this meme kicked off my blogging spree last week, I’ve decided to continue with it for a time. The following consists of 10 books and comics I’ve read that I’ve either completed in a day or could have been completed in a day if life’s chores hadn’t interrupted me.
