Top Ten Tuesday #38: 2019 Spring 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. This week’s topic:

Books on My Spring 2019 TBR

For me, a TBR list often becomes a list of books I really want to read and tell myself to read but never actually read. So here are the books I probably won’t read this spring.

Umm…so I’m gonna cheat a little and list the books I’m currently reading. This way, I’m guaranteed to complete at least half the books on this TBR within the given time.

I Heart Characters! #16: A Minor Character OTP Hook Up

I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani at Perspective of a Writer to share our love of great characters. Each week, Dani assigns a topic/type of character that we must find examples of in the various media we consume (books, TV shows, movies, comics, podcasts, etc.).

Since I often skip a week (or two), I mash the character types Dani assigns into one to create a bonus character type that I include at the end of the post. The title of my post indicates the bonus character type I’ll feature at the end. But for now, here are the topics Dani assigned.

February 14 topic:

A Minor Character Romance

There is that character that is off to the side … how should their romance go? Is it with a character in the same story world or a cross-over romance? You get to decide all the details … how do they meet? Is it love at first sight or does it entail an adventure?

A Beloved Sibling

Brother, sister, or a furry sibling, this character can be a protagonist or a minor character. They would totally make the best sibling…

Top Ten Tuesday #37: New-to-Me Authors from 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:

New-to-Me Authors I Read In 2018

I read several books last year whose authors are new to me. Some were great picks and I look forward to sampling more of those authors’ work, while others made me regret picking up the book. I’ll focus on the positive in this post and discuss only authors whose work I’d like to try again.

I Heart Characters! #14: Playing Catch Up

I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani at Perspective of a Writer to share our love of great characters. Each week, Dani will assign a topic/type of character that we must find examples of in the various media we consume (books, TV shows, movies, comics, podcasts, etc.).

GAH!! I haven’t done one of these since November, right around the time life got too crazy to continue blogging semi-consistently, so now I’m playing catch up. I’m gonna do all the prompts I missed since then in this post and then see if I can select one character who fits them all together. Let’s go!

November 29 topic:

A Redo Character

Use or reuse a prompt from the past

The title of this post indicates the bonus character type I’ll feature at the end. But for now, here are the topics Dani assigned for November so far.

November 1 topic:

A Unique Character

No prompt will ever fit this character because they are so creative, different, or rare!
