{Top Ten Tuesday} Summer TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being featured on That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Books On My Summer 2019 TBR.

Well, we know I’m not good with setting TBR goals, but there are some that I’m really hoping to read over the next few months. Some I’ve requested on audio at my library, that way I can get through as many books as possible before summer is over. 😀

(I pretty much ignore the 10 book rule these days.)

{Top Ten Tuesday} Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of 2019

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being featured on That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Most Anticipated Releases of the Second Half of 2019.

I went back to look at my list for the first half of the year – you can see the post here – and was pleasantly surprised that I read 11 of the 15 books I listed to be read (I couldn’t pick just 10).

I couldn’t stick with 10 books for this post either! And, I’m way behind on reading the ARC’s I’ve received and can only recommend one of them.

{Top Ten Tuesday} 10 Favorite Books From Last 10 Years

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being featured on That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is 10 favorite books from the last 10 years.

This was so hard! Having to narrow down ONE book a year is almost impossible to do. Some years I read so many amazing books that it’s hard to pick an absolute favorite. But I did, minus 2016, where I had to pick 2 books, because they are my two absolute favorite books of all time (It Ends With Us and Making Faces). These are all books that left a lasting impression on me.

{Top Ten Tuesday} Audio Book Love

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being featured on That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Audio Freebie (Any audio goes: audio books, music, podcasts, you name it.).

I only started listening to audio books again in the past year, and I love them. I listen while I’m running, cleaning, cooking and sometimes when I’m working. It has helped me clear off some of the books that have been on my TBR list for a long time, too. For this week’s TTT, I wanted to share some of my favorite audio books, and some audio books I want to listen to in the future.

 

Favorite Audio Books

Audio Books on my Wish List

I loved listening to The Hate U Give on audio – and I hope On the Come Up is just as good.

I’ve already read Daisy Jones (and loved it), but I keep hearing the audio is fantastic.

When I started listening to audio books again, my first book was a Peter Swanson book, which I really enjoyed.

I really want to read the whole Harry Potter series, but at this rate, I’m wondering if listening to the audio versions would be a more realistic goal for me.

I have loved the 2 nonfiction audio books I recently listened to, so I have Maid on hold from the library. If you have any great nonfiction audio book recommendations, please share!

 

 

{Top Ten Tuesday} Books I LOVED with Fewer than 2,000 Ratings on Goodreads

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being featured on That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Books I LOVED with Fewer than 2,000 Ratings on Goodreads.

I learned two things by looking at the ratings of books I’ve read – I haven’t read many books below the 2,000 mark, and most of the books under that mark were romance. I don’t remember much about a few of these books, but apparently I loved them! 😀

    

    

 

Perfectly Undone – I listened to this one on audio and loved it. I have since read the author’s second book and loved it also!

Beautiful Disaster – I do remember bits and pieces of this book, even though I read it a long time ago. I loved it so much and was determined to read more books by this author…which never happened.

Once Upon a Wine – Obviously I was drawn to the title, but this was book was super cute and perfect for my mood at the time.

First Step Forward – This was a new-to-me author. I still haven’t read any more of her books, but I haven’t been in the mood for romance, either.

A Charmed Little Lie – This whole series is really cute.

Results May Vary – This is the book that made me fall in love with Bethany Chase’s writing and I’m kinda surprised there aren’t more ratings for it on Goodreads.

Stories I’d Tell in Bars – I’ve always loved Jen Lancaster’s memoirs.

Snow-Kissed – This still remains the best novella I’ve ever read.

Deep Dark – I’ve loved every book in this series. Laura Griffin writes really good romantic suspense.

In Her Bones – I loved this book on audio – I don’t know if I would’ve liked it as much had I actually read it. I really enjoy all of this author’s books on audio.

 

Have you read any of these?
