Top 10 Tuesday: Books You Like But Haven’t Talked About Enough/In A While

toptentuesdayTop 10 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and the Bookish. For more information about it you can check out their blog.

Okay, I’m going to try and keep my Top 10 Tuesday posts short from now on. So here’s my list:

Number 10: All These Things I’ve Done by Gabrielle Zevin. I love this book!

Number 9: Μάτια στο Καρφί by Olga Patsoura-Leni. A short story collection that I really hope will be translated in English so that you can all read it.

Number 8: The Cyborg Seduction Series and most of the other Laurann Dohner books. I actually have a review of her New Species Series, which I hope that will never end, but it probably will. tumblr_inline_no16efmzaz1tq744y_500Number 7: My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick, which I reviewed a long time ago. I don’t even remember what I had written in that review, but I don’t even want to think about it, because it was one of the first reviews I’d done in this blog.

Number 6: Truly, Madly by Heather Webber.

Number 5: Touch of Power by Maria V. Schnyder. Read it soooo long ago, but I really liked it!

Number 4: Aurelia by Anne Osterlund. I read this one 5 years ago and at the time I had really liked it. Right now I can’t even remember the plot, but I do remember that I had liked it back then and I have never talked about it to anyone so I decided to add it to the list.

Number 3: Grounds to Kill by Wendy Roberts. I think that this is the first book I reviewed. I could be wrong, but I really liked it and I haven’t talked enough about it.

Number 2: Splintered by A.G. Howard. I talk entirely too little about this book.

Number 1: The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend this is currently my favorite book I read in 2016 so I just had to add it.

And that pretty much sums up my reading selections. Short stories, novels, romance, mystery, paranormal, magic, fairytale re-tellings, futuristic sci-fi, contemporary, Adult, YA, there’s a little bit of everything.

Now it’s your turn…

Have you read any of these books? Did you like them? What are some of the books that you think you should talk more about? What are your favorite genres?

Tell me all about it in the comments below…

Top 10 Tuesday: My Top 10 Resolutions for 2016

toptentuesdayTop 10 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and the Bookish. For more information about it you can check out their blog.

To tell you the truth I’m not particularly fond of writing list posts. This, of course, is mostly because I don’t like to leave my book long enough to think of items to fill the list with. But this is not a real excuse. I actually like reading lists of things in other people’s blogs and it also gives me new ideas on what to post on my blog, so why not do it?

Anyway, this week’s subject is Top 10 Resolutions for 2016. I have already talked about some of my resolutions in my Goals for 2016 page and I have also done the New Year’s Resolutions Book Tag, so I will mention my top 10 resolutions really quickly.

Number 1Become a vegetarian.

Honestly, the real goal is for me to become vegan, but I will settle with vegetarian first. I feel the need to take animal products off my diet as much as possible for health reasons, but I find it hard to do that right away. Baby steps are good.

Number 2Create my own portfolio.

Number 3: Host my own art exhibition.

Number 4: Blog consistently and at least 3 times a week.

Number 5: Host my own Read-a-thon.

So far, I have only created my own book Challenge, which is the Read the Globe Book Challenge. I am still trying to think of names for my Read-a-thon, but my imagination is currently hating me. Do you have any suggestions?

Number 6Get an 80% feedback rate on Netgalley.

Number 7: Complete the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge, the #ROCKMYTBR 2016 Challenge and the Read the Globe Book Challenge.

It’s not as hard as it sounds. I hope…

Number 8: Read 100 books.

Or more. You can never have enough books.

Number 9Host my first giveaway.

Number 10Reach 50 followers.

I know that this is out of my control, but I can still hope, right?

These are my top 10 goals. What do you think? What are your own goals? Did you like my Top 10 Tuesday post? Should I do more in the future? And what do you think I should name my Read-a-thon?
