Top Ten Tuesday- “Outrageous” Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books

Hi everyone! I’m back with my fifth Top Ten Tuesday post and this week’s prompt is to list the Outrageous Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books. We book lovers have done a lot of “outrageous” things that we don’t consider to be “outrageous”…I mean, I don’t.. not really.

Top Ten Tuesday- "Outrageous" Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

So, here I am.. just a book lover listing all the things I have done (and probably will in the future) for my love of books…

  • Started my own Book Blog and Bookstagram: Well, it hasn’t been THAT long since I started book blogging and clicking book photos( @book_rambler) but I can’t believe I took this leap. I used to blog about fashion and lifestyle but fell out of it and am so happy blogging about books now.

  • Reading all night long: What? This is outrageous? Girl, if you could hear my Mom screaming at me during 5am to shut the damn book and go to sleep, then yeah I guess you can shelve it under “outrageous” category.

  • Reading while eating: I want to credit my parents for pointing this “outrageous” thing out to me. Is it really though ? Outrageous? If y’all can watch TV while eating, I sure as h*ck can read. Yeah, I literally said that to my parents.

  • Reading while walking: Alright, this is outrageous ’cause I walked into a lamp post while reading and the bump on my head was no joke. Lesson learned.

  • Kiss interruption: Mid kiss, I had to flee because I just remembered that I left my book with my baby niece( who had given my book a thorough bath). In my opinion, this isn’t outrageous because I’m glad my niece interrupted but really ? did she really have to play with my book and give it a bath * cries like a baby *

Top Ten Tuesday – Book series I need to start or finish reading in 2019

Hi everyone! I’m back with my third Top Ten Tuesday post and this week’s prompt is to list the top 10 Standalone Books That Need a Sequel. However, I made a change as I did in my last Top Ten Tuesday prompt.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

So, I can definitely remember a couple of standalones that I’d love a sequel to but I’m going to add a twist of my own to this prompt. My prompt will be about the Top Ten series that I need to start or finish reading in 2019.


Scarlet CinderWinter

 

 

 

 

  1.  The Lunar Chronicles:  I have read Cinder, the first book in the series and completely forgot to read Scarlet, Cress, and Winter. Even though there are 4 or 5 novellas, I am sorry to say that I don’t have the time to read those #NeverthoughtI’dsaythat

Illuminae

2. The Illuminae Files The Illuminae Files trilogy by authors Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff has been on my TBR for a year(I think). Somehow, I never pick it up but I have seen many of my blogger and bookstagram friends recommend it so I hope I can start reading the series this year

The Winter of the Witch

3. The Winternight Trilogy: I loved reading The Bear and the Nightingale and The Girl in the Tower so much that I had to stop myself from reading the final book in the trilogy, The Winter of the Witch. 

Six of Crows

4Six of Crows duologyThis duology is yet another book to which I say, “I’ll you soon!” or “I’ll add you to this month’s TBR.” or “I’ll surely read you next year! See? Added you to my neverending TBR list” I really hope I can finish this duo this year because I can’t meet with my Nikolai otherwise.

The Winner's Curse

5. The Winner’s Trilogy by Marie RutkoskiI read The Winner’s Curse so long ago that I had forgotten about it. I definitely need to finish this trilogy.

Legend by Marie Lu

6. Legend by Marie LuAnother highly recommended series I need to finish. *screams “HELP ME”*

Shatter Me

7. Shatter Me series by Tahereh MafiI need Defy Me in my hands right nowwwwwww!!! Besides Kenji’s novella, I’ve read it all.

This Mortal Coil

8. This Mortal Coil by Emily SuvadaAnother underrated -but highly recommended by some bookstagrammers- series that I’ve added to my cart and on my Goodreads TBR but I’ve never checked it out.

Shades of Magic

9. Shades of Magic by V.E. Schwab: I discovered this series waaayyy before blogging and bookstagram and I have never picked it up. It’s on my Goodreads TBR and I hope I will read it this year.

Muse of Nightmares

10. Strange the dreamer duology: It has been so long since I’ve read Strange the Dreamer and by now, I have acquired two editions of Muse of Nightmares but they’re just sitting on my shelf *facepalms^(infinity)*.


That’s a wrap on today’s Top Ten Tuesday post featuring Top Ten series that I need to start or finish reading in 2019.

Thank you for reading

Welcoming March and waving Goodbye to February

Hi everyone! The last wrap-up post I did was in October and I forgot to write one every month until now. In this post, I’ll do a quick inventory of all the books I’ve read in February and all the books I SINCERELY hope I can read in March (my birthday month!!)

February wrap-up and March TBR

Here’s a glimpse at the 11 books I’ve managed to read in February :

A Small Note

When I started my book blog and bookstagram account last year, I didn’t expect anybody to read it or like my posts. I didn’t even expect to make so many friends through my blog or bookstagram. I cannot tag everyone because not all of my friends have blogs but to those of you who follow me and/or daily engage with me: THANK YOU SO FRICKING MUCH! I LOVE YOU ALL.

Thank you for reading

How did your February go? How many books did you read? What are you looking forward to the most in March? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

WWW Wednesday #1 :​ Weekly reading update

Hi again! Happy Wednesday and Welcome to my first WWW Wednesday post. WWW Wednesday is a meme formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived on Taking On a World of Words.

WWW Wednesday takes place every Wednesday, where bloggers discuss their 3 Ws:

  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll read next?

WWW Wednesday #1 :​ Weekly reading update


The FamiliarsI received this review copy of The Familiars by Stacey Halls a while ago and I started reading it yesterday. If you loved The Essex Serpent and The Miniaturist, then I’d say that you should add this to your TBR.

The Familiars is set against the frenzy of the real 1612 Witch Trials of Pendle Hill, that explores the rights of 17th-century women, as the fate of a noblewoman and her unborn child rests on proving the innocence of her midwife, an accused witch.

I’m currently on Chapter 11 (out of 25 chapters) and enjoying the gothic vibe but disliking the way women were treated at that time.

We Hunt the Flame

I finished reading We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal before starting with The Familiars.

I received an ARC from the publisher and even though it releases in May, I just had to read it now! I have yet to write a blog review but you can check out my Goodreads review here. It was such an incredible book that I can’t recommend it enough.

If you’re on Twitter-Book Twitter- chances are, that you’ve already heard about this book.

Reading Next

Sea monstersIn the full light of the sunWhen the sky fell on splendour

 

 

 

 

 

 

I want to finish reading Sea Monsters by Chloe Aridjis next, followed by In the Full Light of The Sun, and finally When The Sky Fell On Splendour. All are review copies from their publishers.

Thank you for reading

Have you read any of the titles I’ve listed? If not,do you want to read any of them? Let me know in the comments!

Synopsis: In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries.

No one resents the Gerlings more than Jules Ember. A decade ago, she and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings’ palatial estate, until a fateful accident forced them to flee in the dead of night. When Jules discovers that her father is dying, she knows that she must return to Everless to earn more time for him before she loses him forever.

But going back to Everless brings more danger—and temptation—than Jules could have ever imagined. Soon she’s caught in a tangle of violent secrets and finds her heart torn between two people she thought she’d never see again. Her decisions have the power to change her fate—and the fate of time itself.
