{Top Ten Tuesday} Books I Meant To Read In 2018 But Didn’t Get To

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 Meant To Read In 2018 But Didn’t Get To.

It comes as no surprise that there were a lot of books I wanted to read last year and didn’t have the time. Such is the life of a bookworm – so many books and so little time. I’m really hoping to make these books a priority in 2019.

{Top Ten Tuesday} Cozy Winter Reads

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 Cozy/Wintry Reads.

I love to curl up in front of the fireplace with a good book. That’s how I survive the long Ohio winters. 😀 Here are a few of my favorites that I think are perfect cozy reads.

 

The Simple Wild – This is going to top my favorites list of 2018. It’s the best romance I read this year, and is a perfect cozy read to get lost in. I loved everything about this book.

Winter Garden – This is one of my favorite Kristin Hannah books and perfect for this time of year.

Landline – I remember devouring this book in a day, I loved it so much.

Snow-Kissed – This is a novella that was such a wonderful surprise to me (thanks, Rachel!). I loved it so much. And because it’s a novella, it’s a quick read!

The Look of Love – Sarah Jio is always an auto-buy author for me, and most of her books are perfect for this time of year.

Snow Angel Cove – I love reading this author’s Christmas-themed books.

The Bird and the Sword– I don’t read a lot of fantasy, but if you’re looking for a book in this genre – this is the one you want to read!

Moonlight Over Manhattan – Another author who’s books I love to read around the holidays. This is one of my favorites.

Last Christmas in Paris – I read this book on a whim last year and absolutely loved it!

Beartown – This is not a fast-paced read at all – but it is perfect for when you want to curl up and get lost in a book. This is another favorite of 2018 that I will recommend to everyone.

{Top Ten Tuesday} Books Forever on my TBR List

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 the Top Ten Backlist Books I Want to Read.

I usually clear out my TBR list a few times a year, knowing there are a ton of books I will never have time to read and removing the books I’ve lost interest in. But there are several that still remain, because I’m determined to read them someday!

Between Shades of Gray – I have heard this book is fantastic and have loved another book I read by this author. I also read somewhere that it’s being made into a movie, so I need to read it soon.

The Bungalow – I don’t know why it’s taking me forever to pick up this book. I love Sarah Jio and have read all of her books except this one.

Angelfall – This series has great reviews, but I will admit that I’m always hesitant to get sucked into a series, and I have to be in the right mood for this genre.

Red Rising – Another series loved by many, but I haven’t been in the mood to pick it up, yet.

The Sweetness of Forgetting – I loved another book by this author and would like to read more of her books. And also, I love this cover.

Infinity + One – I am actually ashamed to have an Amy Harmon book on this list, since she is one of my absolute favorite authors. This is the only book of hers that I haven’t read, and I have been hesitant, because the reviews range from love to hate. I want to be in the right mood before I pick it up.

A Bird on a Windowsill – A blogger friend recommended this author to me years ago, saying if I loved Colleen Hoover, I would enjoy this author, too. I admit that I own several of her books but haven’t read one yet.

A Gentleman in Moscow – This type of book isn’t what I would usually pick to read, but it comes highly recommended by so many readers and friends that I’m determined to read it someday.

She Laughs in Pink – My friend, Lori, recommended this book to me a long time ago, saying the same thing as above about Colleen Hoover – if I like Colleen, I’ll like this author, too.

The Hate U Give – I have a Kindle copy of this book, but have been waiting for the audio version to become available to me from my library (and it feels like I’ve been on the waiting list for months). I’ve heard from so many readers that the audio is great, so I’m trying to hold out for it.
