Top Ten Tuesday #36: Books for My TBR by Authors I Like

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish but is now managed by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic:

Books By My Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read

I’ve decided to switch up the topic a bit and will instead list books I want to read by authors whose work I’ve read and liked. (So not necessarily my favorite authors.)

Top Ten Tuesday #35: Best Books So Far in 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish but is now managed by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic:

Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far in 2018

Here are the best books I’ve read in the first half of the year. I’ll start at January and work my way up. Rereads are not included.

Nightlights by Lorena Alvarez Gomez (illus.)

★★★★☆

Summary: A sweet illustrated children’s graphic novel about a girl who works past her fears to continue creating the whimsical drawings she loves.

Why I like it: It’s a simple but great story about overcoming one’s insecurities to pursue one’s artistic interests, and I love Gomez’s illustrations. They are vibrant and colorful and pop off the pages.

Top Ten Tuesday #34: Summer 2018 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish but is now managed by That Artsy Reader Girl.

I was hoping for a Summer TBR topic for one of these Top Ten Tuesday posts, but I guess there won’t be one for this year, or maybe I missed it. Anyway, I’ve decided to ignore this week’s topic (red, white, and blue books for the U.S. Independence Day) and instead show y’all what I might not read this summer!! 😀 …Since I never read what I place on my TBR. (I only read 2 books from my spring TBR.)

Summer TBR — Comics!

Despite the lack of confidence in myself that I’ll actually read these, I really hope I do!! Some of these are series I’m already invested in and would like to continue.

Books With My Favorite Color On the Cover

Yea, I know I’m late with my TTT post, but I’ve been a bit lazy lately about drafting posts so this slipped from me. But I really wanted to do it because I love featuring my favorite colors. I thought I’d combine it with my Wishes for My TBR meme and feature instead:

Books in My Favorite Colors That I Want to Get

Top Ten Tuesday #31: Down the TBR Hole #2

Haha!!! Top Ten Tuesday has provided me with another opportunity to do a Down the TBR Hole post.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish but is now managed by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic:

Books I’ve Decided I’m No Longer Interested In Reading

Which is perfect for another edition of Down the TBR Hole, a meme created by Lia at Lost in a Story where we decide whether to keep or remove books on our TBR.

The rules for Down the TBR Hole:
  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?
Batch #1
