5 Questions I’d Ask Kerri Maniscalco Concerning Her Upcoming Book 🐍 | Top Ten Tuesday #7

Two months left until my most anticipated release of the year is out in the world! But, first of all, welcome to today’s blog post and to another Top Ten Tuesday post (hosted by Jana @thatartsyreadergirl) which this time is all about questions I’d ask my favourite author/s. Now, usually, picking a favourite author is just as difficult as picking a favourite book because there are so many good ones out there!! This time, though, it was the easiest and clearest thing in the world. Why? Kingdom of the Wicked, Kerri Maniscalco’s first book in a new ya-fantasy series will be released in October and that’s not too far away from now. If you have read a few of my blog posts you probably already know how much I love the Stalking Jack the Ripper series and its characters (the author’s ya-historical fiction series) because I talk a lot about it basically whenever I am raving about my favourite books of all time.

These Books Should Be Adapted Into Netflix Shows/Movies (!!) πŸŽ₯ | Top Ten Tuesday #6

Time for another Top Ten Tuesday post!! This week it’s all about “books that should be adapted into Netflix shows and movies”. As someone who loves watching tv shows and movies in general and uses Netflix way too often I had to present my own picks for this creative topic so that hopefully my wishes of a tv show/movie featuring one of those books or all of them becomes reality. In case you don’t know; Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @thatartsyreadergirl featuring various bookish topics. And, of course, the idea is to choose 10 books for a topic but what I tend to do is talking about 5 ones. So, yes, that might sound a little rebellious but today is going to be the same. So, let’s just start!

Popular & Hyped Ya-Books I Have Not Read Yet (and never will?) πŸ“œ | Top Ten Tuesday #5

20200529_123713

It’s Tuesday again which means it’s time for another Top Ten Tueday post! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jana (@that artsy reader girl) I try to join as often as I can. This week’s topic is whatever you choose and I decided to kill two bird with one stone with participating in both this week’s TTT and writing about popular and hyped ya-books I haven’t read yet (a blog post idea I had for a while now). After reading this post you’ll find out all the top 5 very hyped ya-books I haven’t read yet (and probably never will??) and to be honest, I already feel guilty about it considering not only how popular these books are but also how well-loved.

Books That Make Me Grin Like a Cheshire Cat (ΰ­¨ΰ­§ ❛ᴗ❛)✧| Top Ten Tuesday #4

20200524_095223

Hello, hello! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday post hosted by Jana (@that artsy reader girl). I know that I’ve stopped doing these for a month now mainly because I couldn’t stick to the time schedule  but I want to get back to joining more TTT posts/topics because I think the chosen topics are nice ones. This week’s topic, for example, is “books that make me smile”. Surprisingly, choosing topics for this week’s post was more difficult than expected because there are so many books, mostlly favourites and funny books that make me smile but I narrowed it down to five books. These are the ones I want to present to you – from comfort reads to all-time favs. Ta-da.

Top 5 Books that Give off Summer Vibes 🏐🐚🐬 | Top Ten Tuesday #3 & Recs

20200509_192843

Hello everyone and happy June! I can’t believe that we are already slowly making our way to the second half of 2020 which means that the summer season is back and with it a fitting Top Ten Tuesday topic for this week hosted by Jana (@that artsy reader girl). This is a list of five ya recommendations that give off summer vibes and are therefore a perfect choice to read right now. From standalone to first in a series, from contemporary to magical realism – I tried to include as many different genres as possible so this post can also be a recommendation list for you guys. If you are not satisfied by that short list I can understand that (click here for a bigger list).  While I am not the biggest fan of summer I do enjoy reading books that give off that particular vibe. Let me introduce you to them, then;

Update: I wrote this blog post in advance which is the reason it might occur to you that it is rather meaningless considering what happened and is happening right now. As a book blogger I can say that educating yourself (whether that is via reading articles, and books, watching documentaries etc.) and actively taking a stand against racism is important because #BlackLivesMatter. A ya-contemporary which is based on the Black Lives Matter movement and one which I can highly recommend is The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas but of course there are so many great books out there which discuss racism. Find out how you can help, speak up, sign petitions, share links and donate if possible!

Reasons Why I Love Mythology-inspired Books So Much πŸ’— | Top Ten Tuesday #2

20200426_195106
Hello everyone and welcome to my second Top Ten Tuesday post hosted by Jana (@that artsy reader girl)! This week’s topic is, just as the last time, a really cool one, because one can choose what to write about with the only restriction that it has to be something you love which can either be an author, a book, a genre or something completely different. For this week I chose the following topic I came up with: Reasons Why I Love Mythology-inspired books and today will include all the praise, worship and love, haha.

Top 5 Books I Wish I Had Read As a Child 🧸| Top Ten Tuesday #1!!

20200421_193159

Hello everyone! I hope everyone’s doing okay so far. Thanks to quarantine, I’ve been able to plan blog posts that are a bit different from my usal ones because as you might know I rarely do book tags, reading challenges and even weekly memes because I tend to be a slow reader at the moment but I do enjoy making lists especially top x lists very much. So, I thought why not try out Top Ten Tuesday hosted by Jana (@ that artsy reader girl)? And, here I am but instead of 10 books (that was a bit too much for me) I decided to go with my usual Top 5 books which is even allowed (yes, I checked). This weeks topic “Books I Wish I Had Read as a Child” really resonated with me and I think it’s a really interesting one to write about but to be honest, I found almost all the TTT topics I saw so far really appealing. Maybe this will be my new go-to blogpost…? (⇀‸↼)
