Top Ten Tuesday Turns 10!

June 23: Top Ten Tuesday Turns 10! Option 1: pick a past TTT topic you’ve done and re-do/update it (Perhaps you’d remove certain books you put on the list back when you first wrote it, or perhaps you have 10 MORE books you’d add to that list now. You could also re-visit TBR posts, whether seasonal or series you need to finish, etc., and tell us if you’ve read them yet or not. Any variation of this idea works. Feel free to be creative.) Option 2: pick a past TTT topic you wish you’d done, but didn’t get a chance to do (the list of topics is below).


So, I’ve picked an old topic from roughly this time last year (March 19: Books On My Spring 2019 TBR) and I thought I’d look back and see which (if any) I read, and what I thought of them.

… You’d be horrified how many TBR posts I had to click through to find one where I’d actually read at least a couple…

Top Ten Shows on My Summer 2020 Watchlist

June 16: Books on My Summer 2020 TBR (or winter if you’re in the southern hemisphere)


There’s a lot of books on my summer TBR — a lot — but most of them will be included in various readathons over the next couple of months: Make Your Myth Taker, NEWTs, Mythothon, Olympic Games etc… Since I’ve already got TBR posts up or planned for those, I thought I’d switch To Be Read to To Be Watched (or caught up on) for this weeks topic.

Have you seen any of these shows? What did you think?

10 More Books I’ve Added to my TBR and Forgotten Why

top ten tuesday

June 9th


I made up this topic for myself in March on a week I couldn’t think up answers for the actual prompt. Jana was kind enough to ask if she could use it for an official prompt too.


Ten More Books I’ve Added to my TBR and Forgotten Why


I’m certainly not saying any of these are bad books, I just literally don’t remember adding them to my TBR. Let me know if there’s any in particular you’d recommend I make a point of prioritising.

It says a lot about how out-of-control my Goodreads shelves are that I found another ten for this topic…

10 Fantasy Books by BAME Authors I Want to Read

top ten tuesday

The official prompt this week is “May 26: Opening Lines (Best, favorite, funny, unique, shocking, gripping, lines that grabbed you immediately, etc.)” but I’m bad at making a note of interesting opening lines, so I’ve come up with a different Top Ten.

Since this is Wyrd & Wonder month, it’s fantasy themed. I’m taking a look at some of the fantasy books by BAME authors currently on my TBR.

10 ‘Magical’ Cozy Mysteries


top ten tuesday

The official prompt this week is “May 12: The Last Ten Books I Abandoned (this could be books you DNFed, books you decided you were no longer interested in, etc.) (submitted by Claire @ Book Lovers Pizza)” but I really don’t DNF often, and I don’t keep track when I do, so it seemed a bit of a waste.

Since this is Wyrd & Wonder month, I’ve picked a different fantasy themed Top Ten. Fantasy and paranormal a big trend in cozy mystery at the moment and I love them because it combines two of my favourite genres. Whether it’s vampires, witches, dragons or ghosts, here are ten cozy mysteries I’ve read — or want to read — with a bit of magic.

[Blank] of [Blank] and [Blank]

May 5: [Blank] of [Blank] and [Blank]

Todays topic is officially May 5: Things I’d Have at My Bookish Party (choose 10 things: items, accessories, foods, people (real or fictional), decorations, activities, etc.) but I just couldn’t get that one to work for me, so I’ve come up with a theme of my own this week.

What book title trend have you noticed or enjoyed?

TTT: Books I Wish I Had Read As a Child


top ten tuesday

April 28: Books I Wish I Had Read As a Child

Some of these are books that everyone else seems to have read back in school, they;re ones I sort of wish I’d been forced to read because I don’t have any particular interest in the story but want to know what everyone’s talking about. Some are YA books that I missed while they were hugely popular, and again, I don’t really care to read, but I feel like I’m missing out on references sometimes.

Does any of that make sense?
