It’s another Tuesday, which means Top Ten Tuesday time! As always I love joining in on the fun and creating content for specific themes. But (you probably already noticed) I always tend to rebel a little bit and give the theme a spin of my own!
This week’s TTT is Top 10 Favorite Books Released in the Last Ten Years, and the idea is to come up with one book per each year. I tend to always talk about my favorite books, so I didn’t feel like repeating something I’ve done before, therefore today I’m talking about my TBR. More specifically – 10 Books Released in the Last Ten Years that are still on my To-Be-Read List!
I went to my vast GoodReads TBR shelf and selected one book for each year that I’m the most excited to read.
The fifth month of the year and my 5th set of goals! (Let’s pretend that I didn’t skip this post in February.) I don’t do well with monthly TBR, mostly because I never follow them, and feel forced to read certain books. But GOALS! They are so motivating!
I also love readings other’s monthly goals and see if I can steal some of them for myself 😀
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!
Whenever I write these posts, I try to answer several questions: What do I want to achieve next month? What do I need to work on? What steps will bring me closer to my goal?
Usually, the answers would be to STAY PRODUCTIVE! MOVE FORWARD! and everything with a similar vibe. But April will be slightly different. Of course, there are still books to read and blog posts to write; but my intention is to take is easy.
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.
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.
Months are flying so quickly! Just “yesterday” I posted my most anticipated releases for the month of June and now it’s already the 1st of July. Somehow time has been escaping me this year. Any tips on how to make it go slower? *idea for a new blog post *wink*
It is currently 10th of June, but it feels like 160th days of January (I did the math, today is, officially, the 160th day of the year and end of Week 23) because the weather has been abnormally horrible, the summer doesn’t seem to rush to Portugal this year. I feel sorry for the numerous tourists who decided that May / June were the perfect months to come out on holidays. (which they usually are!).
These posts are dangerous. Dangerous to my shelves and most importantly my wallet. Just when I thought I would give my wallet and bank account some rest from all the bookish purchases (my birthday was last month and I went a little bit overboard with book orders, oops…) here we are with more exciting new releases.

There is only one month left before the end of this year and there are still a huge amount of books I would like to read before the 31st of December. I think it will always be like this , no matter how many books I manage to read each year.
Maybe I should be reading all those SERIES I STARTED AND NEVER FINISHED instead? Maybe… But reading ARCs seems so much more appealing!
I definitely have a problem with the fantasy series but they will have to wait. Because it’s ARC August time! I will be participating in the 5th Annual ARC August, hosted by lovely book bloggers from Read.Sleep.Repeat
