Book Tag | The Last 10

Book Tag | The Last 10

I missed book tag Thursday yesterday because I had my first shift at my new job! I can’t remember if I told you all about it but I’m one of the new operations assistants at a local community centre working part-time while I study. I also had to finish my PhD application which was due in today, so I’ve had a pretty busy few days and fell a bit behind with blogging.

Here’s a fun little tag to catch up on my missed day yesterday!

Top 10 Tuesday | 2019 Most Anticipated Releases

Top 10 Tuesday | 2019 Most Anticipated Releases

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. 

– Top 10 Most Anticipated Releases of 2019 –

Today truly is the day of 2019 anticipated releases posts and its been so fun to look through everyone else’s posts to see what releases they’re most excited about. As for me, I’ve been using Kaleena’s handy spreadsheet to keep track of all of the new releases I’ve been looking forward which means my list is already ready to go. Most surprising is that this year there is hardly any YA on this list, might it be that my YA days are slowly drawing to a close?! This year looks to definitely be the year of SFF.

Games I Want to Play in 2019

Games I Want to Play in 2019

As I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, I’m a gamer as well as a reader! However, my gaming often gets put aside for reading so one of my goals for this year was not only to play more video games but also blog more about video games. Although I already write articles for Sidequest, a great website which focuses on the unconventional in gaming and centers marginalized voices, I want to share more about gaming here on my blog as well. Video games have always been such a huge part of my life, so much so that I am (hopefully) doing a PhD about them, and so I’m aiming to make a lot more time for them in 2019.

Inspired by Becca and Destiny‘s posts, I thought it would be cool to kick off my video game blogging and the year with a little list of the backlist and new release games I’m looking forward to playing in 2019. Obviously this isn’t the entire list because I don’t want to keep you here all day, so if you’re curious ask in the comments.

Down the TBR Hole | #2

Down the TBR Hole | #2

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

Welcome to the second instalment of Down the TBR Hole! I can’t believe I went for so long thinking that it really wasn’t for me and that I had my TBR all under control myself, clearly I was deluded because my TBR keeps expanding no matter how many books I read! I found my first go at Down the TBR Hole incredibly useful so I’m back to knock a few more old books off my list.

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?
