Top 10 Tuesday | Lesser Known Books I Meant to Read in 2018

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly book tag that was run by The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a different bookish theme those deep-seated desires to list! Anyone is welcome to join in on their blog, in the comments or any other way. 

If there’s one thing all of us book bloggers have in common, it’s our very long lists of books we meant to read at some time or another and there are so many books in the world that it’s only natural that some always seem to get left behind more than others. Throughout all of 2018 and the beginning of this month, I’ve already shared many lists of books that I meant to read and these lists often mention the same books over and over again. So, instead of sharing big name books that always get attention I thought I would with you all some of the lesser known books on my 2018 TBR that I didn’t get round to instead!

Down the TBR Hole | #3

Down the TBR Hole | #3

Down the TBR Hole was originally created by Lia @ Lost in a Story

Welcome to the third instalment of Down the TBR Hole! I’ve been having a great time with Down the TBR Hole so far and am loving getting my GR shelves in better order. I’ve been adding a lot of books to my TBR recently though so I have a lot of organizing to do to keep it contained!

How it works:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 books)
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

WWW Wednesday | 16th January 2019

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

I’ve recently become interested in the idea of WWW Wednesday after seeing a couple of posts from new blogging friends and decided to join in with the fun. It’s a nice way to give you a little weekly snapshot of my reading progress (as well as hold myself accountable haha).

Top 10 Tuesday | New-to-me Authors for 2019

Top 10 Tuesday | New-to-me Authors for 2019

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly book tag that was run by The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a different bookish theme those deep-seated desires to list! Anyone is welcome to join in on their blog, in the comments or any other way. 

As I already did a little 2018 new-to-me authors section in my ‘best of 2018’ post, I thought it would be cool to look ahead at new-to-me authors that I’ll be reading in 2019. I loved discovering new authors last year and many of their books became my favourite books of 2018 so I’m looking forward to seeing what new-to-me authors 2019 brings me.

How to hype your favourite reads

How to hype your favourite reads

It’s been quite a long time since I’ve done a discussion post and today I wanted to discuss with you all different ways that we can hype and support our favourite reads outside of reviews. I think one of the biggest misconceptions about book blogging is that you have to review everything and if you’re not reviewing books then you’re not supporting those books or authors.  Yet, when I recently looked back through my blog posts whilst doing my brand redesign, I noticed that I very rarely review my favourite books. I usually review most of the other books that I read, but I just find reviewing my favourites so hard, I never know what to say! Despite not reviewing them, I still get a lot of people who tell me that they read one of my faves though I never reviewed them.

So, how can we hype up our favourite reads outside of reviewing?
