Ten Authors I’d like to read more of | Top Ten Tuesday

If you’d have asked me 2-3 years ago who was my absolute favorite author I’d buy any books from, I’d say Cassandra Clare or Sarah J. Maas. However, my reading tastes changed a lot during the last two years and in 2019, both of these authors were featured in my post: “Authors I’m Giving Up On”.

With this week’s TTT (Top Ten Tuesday) topic – Auto-Buy Authors, it’s time to revisit some older favorite authors and highlight some new ones!  But because there are not a lot of authors on my, so called, “auto-buy list”, I’d like to talk about Top 10 Authors I’d like to read more of! 

Here are my two previous posts about New-to-me authors:

Most Anticipated Releases | July 2019

There is only one downside to these “most anticipated releases” posts – I tend to request too many ARCs on Netgalley. Then they all get approved at the same time and I suddenly have tons of books that need to be read ASAP!

I still love seeing new releases and pick a few that spark my interest to share them on my blog.

July will be a great month for new releases! I’m the most excited about «The Merciful Crow» (that I didn’t get the ARC of) and «Stay and Fight» (that I’m going to start reading this week!).

Top 4 Childhood Favorites | Ft. Favorite Quotes from «The Little Prince»!

This week’s TTT (Top Ten Tuesday) theme is Childhood Favorites! I was a very avid reader when I was little, and I loved to re-read books. My grandma would always ask me why I was wasting time reading the same books over and over again when I could have picked any new book from my granddad’s huge home library.

Now I see her point, but back then in my early teens, re-reading my favorite books was my favorite pastime.

My Summer TBR & Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag

This time for my weekly TTT (Top Ten Tuesday) post, I decided to combine this week’s topic Books on my summer TBR with some questions from Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag.

I did this tag 2 years ago and it was so interesting to look back on it and see what books I loved/hated in 2017. So I want to have something similar this year as well. Especially because I don’t feel like I’ve read any truly wonderful books this year yet. There were a few that I really enjoyed and gave 5 stars to, but only 5 (out of 39) made it to my “2019 favorites” shelf on GoodReads.

Birthday Bookhaul | Ft. N.K. Jemisin, Mark Lawrence and Patrick Ness!

My birthday was last month and I had some cupons / gift cards to spend on books, so I might have gone a little crazy with my book shopping spree! But there is nothing more satisfying than new books on my shelves.

Most Anticipated Releases | June 2019

Unlike May, June doesn’t have 300 new books that I’m excited to read. In fact, I was only able to find 8 books I was interested in! (Which usually never happens, as I want to read everything and at the same time!)

28 Random Facts About Me!

This is going to be a very self-centered post, but Hey! Every once in a while, I think it’s allowed to stop talking books and focus on myself, especially with my 28th birthday coming up this Sunday, May 12th!

I would love to know how you usually celebrate your birthdays. Big loud parties or quiet family dinners?

I used to love my birthdays when I was younger. The excitement of inviting my school friends, creating different games, decorating my room with balloons! During more recent years, I tend to lean more towards family dinners and weekend get-aways. Something quieter and more relaxing than the craziness of hosting dinners.

April Book Haul | A mix of genres & Brandon Sanderson books!

After reading «Steelheart» by Brandon Sanderson, I decided to go ahead and order the rest of the books in the series and also the 2nd and 3rd books in Mistborn series, so I can finally binge read some Sanderson works!

Me ordering books online can sometimes be a little dangerous. I got slightly carried away and ended up getting some other books that have been on my TBR list for far too long!

Most Anticipated Releases | May 2019

From stunning covers to the most amazing selection of books (and of course my Birthday 😊), May is going to be the greatest month of book releases in 2019!

10 Different Rainy Day Moods and Books Recommendations!

How do you usually feel when it rains? Do you wish for sunshine? Do you enjoy the calming sound of the raindrops?

Personally, rainy days for me are perfect to catch up on some blogging and reading. Although, I do enjoy reading in the sun as well. But there is something cozy about the rain and dark sky, the possibility to lit up a few candles and cuddle up with a book under a blanket. I’m definitely a cozy reader!

Today I’m joining the Top Ten Tuesday theme – Rainy Day Reads, with a slight twist. Let’s get started!

Most Anticipated Releases | April 2019

Some month I struggle to find new books to add to this post. While other months, there are so many of them that it becomes difficult to narrow the list down. This was the case for April. This post could go on and on forever!

I can’t even imagine what May will be like. Most of my current ARCs will be published in May and I haven’t even checked other new releases yet. But one step at a time!
Let’s see what April brings us!

Women’s Prize for Fiction 2019 | What books will I add to my TBR?

For the last two years I’ve been following closely the Women’s Prize for Fiction, especially the announcements of Long- and Shortlists. But this will be my first time attempting to read some of the nominated titles.

A new set 16 books have been carefully picked for the longlist of Women’s Prize for Fiction. Don’t think that I will be able to read all of them until the winner is announced on June 5th, 2019, but there are a few that definitely sparked my interest.

Most Anticipated Releases | March 2019

There are some months that are filled with the new and most excited releases (it seems as though Publishers much prefer January / May and September over the other months!) and then there are months when I browse the New Releases page on GoodReads / BookDepository and other websites for many many hours, and still cannot find anything that excites me.

In March, there were only 7 books that looked somewhat promising.

The First BookHaul of 2019!

book haul

Many people begin the new year with clearing their bookshelves, to purge and make room for all the new releases of 2019. I, however, am still not ready to give away my books.

Besides, beginning the new year with a book haul, instead of an unhaul is so much more pleasurable! And that is what we are doing today.

Since my last haul in July 2018, I’ve accumulated another 17 books, featured below:

An Overly Ambitious TBR | January 2019

I shall start this year strong! Hence, I picked a total of 9 (yes, you heard me right – NINE) books to read in January. It’s been a while since I was able to read more than 6 books per month, and my internship started this week. But I believe in myself! And big books don’t scare me at all. (well.. maybe a little bit).

Sadly, many new books released in January won’t arrive in time for me to read them all in January. They will just have to queue for the next month’s TBR.
