World Con 2019 | Book Haul & TBR

World Con 2019 | Book Haul & TBR

It has been a super intense week and I am also just starting to recover from my epic trip to Dublin to attend World Con 2019. I set off for Dublin on Thursday morning, went straight from the airport to the con center and it was pretty non-stop from there until I got home on Monday evening (plus 2 days recovery). I want to do a proper event review over the weekend because there were honestly so many incredible highlights that I want share with you all but even the thought of going back over it so soon is exhausting!

For now though, I thought it would be a good idea to talk about BOOKS because that’s really what we’re all here for :’) I was very well behaved at World Con on account of a) financial constraints and b) not being able to afford to carry anything back to the UK so I thought it would be a good idea to combine a haul post with a post-World Con TBR. Of course there were so many panels with so many amazing recommendations so naturally my TBR list has grown exponentially. I hope you’re tempted to add them all to your TBR’s too 😉

– Top 10 Recent Discoveries – 

Once again I’m straying away from the weekly prompt, this week it was villains, to talk about books that I’ve recently discovered instead as there’s only so much I can talk about the books I’ve read! Although I try to keep my Goodreads TBR shelf in tip top shape, to stop it getting as out of control as it used to be, over the past few months I’ve come across some books that have really peaked my interest and just had to be added. Here are 10 of my favourites and ones I can’t wait to read.

Most Popular Books versus the Highest Rated Books on my TBR

Most Popular Books versus the Highest Rated Books on my TBR

This past week has ended up being a very Goodreads inspired blogging week. This time I’ve been inspired by Destiny’s super fun post. The aim is to sort your Goodreads TBR shelf according to the number of ratings (“num ratings”) and share the books which are the most popular.

When I tried it out the other day I thought it was really interesting alternating between the most popular books and the highest rated books on my TBR because those two things are very different. So I’m going to divide this post into most popular versus highest rated for a fun comparison! As there are quite a few books which appeared on my highest rated list that either hadn’t been reviewed as the book isn’t released yet (and no ARCs released) or only had less than 5 reviews, I will only be including books that have been released (including ARCs) and that have more than 30 reviews.

– Top 10 Books on my Spring TBR–

It’s hard to believe that Spring is here, especially when we’ve had snow all weekend and everything is confused about what season it even is any more so I haven’t really been doing an awful lot of thinking about what would be on my Spring TBR. I tend to set my TBR month to month and even then I don’t get round to reading some of the books! I do have a bunch of books that I really need to get my little butt into gear and read though so this is the perfect excuse to be held accountable for my promises ;D
