I got tagged in this Netflix book tag by Kat. A tag that combines both reading and Netflix? How could I say no?!
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 Books Which Represent the Diversity of Britain –
This week’s Top 10 Tuesday prompt was actually Books That Take Place in Another Country but I felt really moved to do something about my own country and its diversity. Part of this is motivated by a very long and enduring grudge that I have against the British film industry which continually perpetuates this idea of Britain as some kind of posh, white British utopia full of Keira Knightley’s and Benedict Cumberbatch’s. But my Britain is a lot less Pride and Prejudice and a lot more Kidadulthood. This is not to say that everywhere in Britain is like that, but I am from a world of estates, tracksuits and hanging around in the streets rather than big houses, tweed, and Oxbridge.
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.

ZEUS – King of the Gods: your favourite book
I debated about putting this as my favourite book, given my distancing from the HP Universe thanks to Rowling’s insistent ‘death of the author’ mission. However, even when I can remove myself from the rest of the universe, I still get such warm glowy feels from this book and can’t deny that it’s probably one of my favourite books.
I feel like I have been away for the longest time and honestly, it has been making me so sad. Just as I was getting really invested in blogging, coming up with loads of future blog ideas, and working my way through my first ever Netgalley book, I got hit big time by my end of year deadlines.
