Top Ten Books with Red, Green or White Covers

Top Ten Books with Red, Green or White Covers

Instead of this weeks topic (which I couldn’t really get into) I’m going to start the festive season a little early.

Below are ten books I’ve read and enjoyed in the last 12 months that, while not actually anything to do with the upcoming holidays, together make me think of festive colour scheme.

Top Ten ‘Winter’ Books

November 23: Top Ten ‘Winter’ Books

The official prompt is: Characters I’d Love An Update On (Where are they now that the book is over?).

I think that the topic would just end up as a combination of my favourite books, which I talk about a lot, and intriguing secondary characters, which we’ve covered recently.

Instead, because it’s getting horribly cold here in Scotland again, here are ten books with wintery titles.

Top Ten NonFiction on my TBR

Top Ten NonFiction on my TBR

Another off-topic TTT this week. The Non-Fiction Novemeber readathon always catches my eye at this time of year but, in all honestly, I’ll be lucky if I manage one NF book this month (or any month really). I do often see interesting looking non-fiction (and I’ve a fair few unread on my Kindle and shelves) but I just always get caught up in the exciting novels I want to read, so it’s slow progress.

Here are ten non-fiction books I hope I’ll get to read eventually.

Top Ten Recent Great Reads I Didn’t Review #3

Top Ten Recent Great Reads I Didn’t Review #3

Today’s TTT is about quotes, and I’m never very good at that prompt, so I’m going off topic with another post about books I haven’t reviewed. These are some of the books I’ve read in the past couple of months that were four/five star reads, but I don’t think I’ve had a chance to properly rave about.

Top Ten Graphic Novels I’d Suggest to Someone who Dislikes Reading

November 2: Books I Would Hand to Someone Who Claims to Not Like Reading

I might be coming at this weeks topic at a bit of angle, but the complaint I’ve always heard from the dedicated non-readers in my own family is always that either books take too long and films are faster , or that they struggle to picture what the words are trying to convey.

Graphic novels then, seem the perfect solution to both.

Below, are seven graphic novels I’ve loved (in a few different of genres) and three upcoming books I think look well worth trying.

Top Ten Spooky Books Still on my TBR

Top Ten Spooky Books Still on my TBR (or which I’ve read recently)

Todays a Top Ten Tuesday Halloween Freebie so I thought it was a good opportunity to just have a chat about the spooky, creepy books I’m excited to read. I don’t read an awful lot of ‘true’ horror, but I do love spoopy Halloween vibes, or creepy ominous setting, or books with a dark storyline.

Let me know your taste in scary books, and what you think of the ten I’ve picked.

Top Ten Online Resources for Book Lovers

October 19: Online Resources for Book Lovers (what websites, podcasts, apps, etc. do you use that make your reading life better?)

A short Top Ten this week, just a Top 5 really, but I do think these are all good answers. I really couldn’t think of any more I actually use, but I’m sure as soon as I start reading through everyone else’s posts today I’ll remember all the really obvious ones I’ve missed.
