Top 5 Tuesday – Top 5 books with numbers in the title

Hello everyone! Today’s prompt is top 5 books with numbers in the title. I actually had some trouble with this one. Apparently I don’t read a ton of books with numbers in the title, but I was able to make it to five books that I enjoyed. 🙂 The covers all link to the book’s Goodreads page, and I’ve included the official covers and synopsis when available. Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, and is now being hosted at Meeghan Reads!

First Lines Fridays (66) – March 10, 2023

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Book Haul – February 2023

For such a short month, I sure did haul a lot of great books. I was hoping I’d spend less in February, but I actually ended up spending even more than in January, $176.91 not including book boxes. I got tons of great stuff, though. I think at least part of my increased shopping this month was due to feeling like crap for half of the month thanks to COVID. Once I was better, I wanted to celebrate and couldn’t think of a better way than new books. lol. I didn’t use the library quite as much in February, but I’m more than making up for it in March already. I’ve had what seems like a billion holds come in all at once, which is both stressful and exciting. It is also important to note that I unhauled 20 books in February, as well. So, I made a little space on my shelves for all the newbies. 🙂

Monthly TBR – March 2023 (Trope-ical Readathon)

I can’t believe it is already time for another round of Trope-ical Readathon. It seems like August was just yesterday. I’ve decided to switch things up this time and join a different team, Team Science Fiction. I’ve always been on Team Fantasy in the past, but I liked the prompts better for Team Sci Fi this time. For the last Trope-ical Readathon, I didn’t set a specific TBR. Instead, I filled in the challenges as I went along throughout the month rather than picking specific books for the prompts the way I usually have in the past. This worked really well for me last time since it was the first time I’ve finished all the challenges. So, I’m going to proceed the same way again.The general and team prompts are in the graphics below, and more information about this readathon can be found at Jen Jen Reviews. If you are interested in participating, you have until March 5 to sign up!
