Top Ten Tuesday #28: Fall 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:

Fall TBR!!!

😀 Love creating them but never follow them, here’s what I might/mightn’t read:

End of Year Book Tag

And here’s another book tag! It’ll be a book-tag-filled week, if you haven’t realized. I found this one on YouTube on Ariel Bissett’s channel. She is the creator.

Again, I wasn’t tagged though the focus of this week is stuff I’m tagged for so… I’ll start on that tomorrow!! 😀

Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?

Yes, there are. My Goodreads says I’m currently reading 11 books, which is almost correct because there’s another that I’m currently reading that I forgot to place on the list. So of the 12 books I have on the go, I’d like to complete these by the end of the year:

Top Ten Tuesday #27: Best Books So Far in 2017

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.

Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed

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 #22: Spring 2017 TBR

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

Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR

I love making TBR lists though I hardly read the books I place on them. I say this every time I make one, as if it’s a mantra, but it’s true. However this time, since I’m indecisive on what to read next, I hope that making this list will help to push me to my next read.

Book Haul #29: Used & New

…And I’m back with a book haul post. Here are all the books I’ve acquired recently. If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve probably seen them already. Oh well.

Used books

bookhaul-22-1

I don’t usually buy used books but these were in such great condition that I grabbed them. I picked up The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd because I saw lots of rave reviews for it last year, and I got Parnassus on Wheels by Christopher Morley, with illustrations by Douglas Gorsline, because I heard it’s a book that book lovers will enjoy. I think I first heard of it on the Book Riot Youtube channel.

Fall & Winter 2016 TBR

I love creating TBR lists. I get excited when I think about making a list of books to read, though I tend to go overboard and list more than I’m likely to complete. Not that it matters much, since I hardly ever read the books I include on my TBR list. I do try, but for some reason, after I list them, I don’t pick them up. My mood instead pushes me to consider other books.

Well, here I’m listing books I’ve already started, borrowed, or know, for sure, that I will, mos’ def, read in the coming months. I hope to get through a couple of them in the next few days since I’ll be going on a little trip, so things might be silent on here for a while if I’m unable to blog from where I will be. Anyways, the books:

Books I’ve started:
