Nine Books About Sand

Today’s Top Ten is all about Beachy reads, and seeing as I don’t like the beach nor reading at the beach, I decided to just look up a couple of books that I remember involved sand. Whether it be because part of the story took place on a beach or a desert, but each of these books had sand mentioned at least once, as far as I can remember. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme, organised by The Broke and the Bookish. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray Rogue One by Alexander Freed An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. …

Eight Books My Mum Got Me to Read

Sunday 14th of May was Mother’s Day in my country, and probably lots of other countries as well. Becuase of that, TTT has organised a Mother-themed subject this week. Other than that, we’re free to choose whatever we want to talk about, so I decided to talk about eight books my mum got me to read. Whether it be because she gave them to me as a present, or because I borrowed a book from her collection… Here are eight of them! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme organised by The Broke and the Bookish. Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay The Twins by Tessa de …

Twelve Things That Will Make Me Not Want to Read a Book

Last week I talked about nine things that will instantly make me want to read a book. This week, it’s time to talk about the exact opposite, things that will make me not want to read a book. Or things that I’d rather just not read about. I often won’t put down a book when I realise one or two of these elements are in the book, but most of the time I will down-rate a book because of it. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme organised by The Broke and the Bookish. Instalove – Ok sometimes, very rarely, I don’t mind that much that a character …

Six Fandoms I Am In

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about fandoms, which fandoms you’re in, which ones you think are the coolest, etc. I’m going to talk about six fandoms I’m in, and how I got into them. I could have gotten up to ten, but I decided to just use the six I am really actively a ‘member’ of at the moment, instead of naming four more that I kind of like but don’t really feel a part of. (To be honest, there are lots of good but also bad things about each of these fandoms that I am mentioning, and I am not at all saying they are the best). Top …
