Top 5 Tuesday – Top 5 Books I Meant to Read in 2022

Hello, everyone! I’m actually participating in Top 5 Tuesday for TWO WEEKS IN A ROW. This is quite the accomplishment for my lazy self. lol. Meeghan is coming out of the gate swinging this month with the brutal topic first. I guess it is best to rip the bandaid off quick so we can move on to more happy year-end topics. 🙂 This week’s topic is top 5 books I meant to read in 2022. The actual answer is probably ALL OF THEM (or close to it), but I was able to pick out 5 that I’m disappointed the most about punting to 2023. Stay tuned after these five letdowns for a special treat that will hopefully lighten the mood! Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, and is now being hosted at Meeghan Reads!

Top 5 Tuesday – Top 5 Books with Swords

Hello, everyone! I’m really horrible at keeping up with this meme even though I always love participating. This week’s prompt was a freebie. So, I chose to dig through the topics I missed and do one of those. I never did any of the scavenger hunt prompts, and it seemed like fun. Therefore, this week’s topic is top 5 books with swords. I chose this particular scavenger hunt because it seemed doable given how much fantasy I read, but it was actually harder than I thought because many of the books that first came to mind didn’t actually have a sword on the cover. I got to five in the end, though, and they were all 4 or 5 star reads for me. Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, and is now being hosted at Meeghan Reads!

First Lines Fridays (60) – November 4, 2022

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!

Top 5 Tuesday – Top 5 Anticipated Reads for Oct-Dec 2022

Hello everyone! It’s been way too long since I’ve participated in Top 5 Tuesday. What can I say? I’ve been super lazy when it comes to blog posts that aren’t reviews or wrap-ups. I’m still feeling lazy, but this is a pretty easy topic. So, I thought I’d hop on board for at least this week with my top 5 anticipated reads for this last quarter of 2022. Strangely enough, the first two actually released TODAY, and I’ll be making a trip to B&N to snatch them up. 🙂 Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, and is now being hosted at Meeghan Reads!
