Hi everyone! I’m back with another Top Ten Tuesday post and this week’s prompt is to list the The Ten Most Recent Additions to My Bookshelf.

Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Releases of the Second Half of 2019
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.

I love doing these type of posts. I’ve never written blog posts about book hauls, mostly photographed them and posted them on IG. Today I’m listing some of the latest additions to my shelf, most of these books I’ve listed below are gifted or received for review.

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.
Top Ten Tuesday- "Outrageous" Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books
  • 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.
Top Ten Tuesday- "Outrageous" Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books
  • 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.
Top Ten Tuesday- "Outrageous" Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books
  • 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.
Top Ten Tuesday- "Outrageous" Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books
  • 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 *

That’s a wrap on today’s Top Ten Tuesday post featuring five “outrageous” things I’ve done for my beloved books.

Thank you for reading

What about you? Have you done anything outrageous for your love of books? I would love to know them all!

Top Ten Tuesday – Books On My Spring 2019 TBR

Hi everyone! I’m back with my fourth Top Ten Tuesday post and this week’s prompt is to list the Books On My Spring 2019 TBR. Thankfully, I have a big list and I’ve narrowed it down for you in here.

Top Ten Tuesday graphic
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.

Most of the books listed are review copies gifted by their publishers and some aren’t. While Spring is not my favorite season but I love the books releasing this Spring and here they are:


The Hunting Party
  1.  The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley:  The Hunting Party is the author’s first crime novel and is described as combining elements of Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None and The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I’m a huge sucker for thrillers so me being “excited” is an understatement.
Finale by Stephanie Garber

 2. Finale(Caraval #3) by Stephanie Garber: I liked Caraval but not so much as I did Legendary and the ending made me thirsty for Finale, the third and final book in the trilogy.

Small Town Hearts

3.  Small Town Hearts by Lillie Vale: I was provided a review copy for a blog tour and I’m so “hungry” to read it. Get it? Apparently, It has lots of mentions of food *salivating right now*

The Winter of the Witch

4.  The Winter of the Witch(Winternight Trilogy #3) by Katherine Arden: If you’ve been following my last posts, you might’ve noticed how much I loved Vasya and I’ve been holding back on reading the final book in the trilogy.

Daisy Jones and the six

5.  Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid: I loved The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and I was so frickin’ happy to get a review copy of Daisy Jones & The Six !

The Doll factory

6.  The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal: The Doll Factory is a debut novel by Elizabeth Macneal and is described as an intoxicating story of art, obsession and possession. Sign me up!

the confessions of Frannie Langton

7.  The Confessions of Frannie Langton by Sara Collins: This is giving me spooky vibes the likes of The Corset and The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell.

A curse so dark and Lonely

8.  A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer: Another 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. The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty: The City of Brass has been on my TBR for a while now and this is the perfect time to read both the books in the Daevabad Trilogy.

Muse of Nightmares

10. In the Full Light of the Sun by Clare Clark: This is a historical fiction based on a true story and follows the fortunes of three Berliners caught up in an art scandal—involving newly discovered van Goghs—that rocks Germany amidst the Nazis’ rise to power.


That’s a wrap on today’s Top Ten Tuesday post featuring Books On My Spring 2019 TBR.
