T5W: Teachers and Mentors in Literature

I was thinking about my blogging schedule over the coming weeks, looking at the things I like to post at this time of year, and was checking Goodreads to see what books I’ve read this month when I remembered that I hadn’t actually checked this week’s Top 5 Wednesday post. I have learnt a lot from books, I’ve been reading for, well, as long as I can remember, I don’t remember a life before books and words, so a lot of my knowledge has come from the world of literature, so I was really excited about this week’s topic.

T5W: Book Spines

If you take part in Top 5 Wednesday, or have being reading other’s blog posts, then you may have realised that this is not the topic for this week. I actually love this week’s topic, but, I decided not to narrow down children’s books to read as an adult. The reason? I’ve done the topic before in various guises across many blog posts, and if I am honest I believe any good children’s book can be read as an adult anyway, so, yes, I have decided to go back and visit an older topic that I missed out on.

T5W: Freebie – Magical Items

This week, after a world of wind and snow and busy work days, it’s nice to think about all things freebie and all things magical. There are no topic ideas or restraints on this week’s prompt, other than to go crazy with your own thoughts and ideas. I decided to have a look back through the Top 5 Wednesday Archives for topics that I liked but never got the chance to do. There are lots as it turns out, so I think over the coming months I may do this more often if that week’s topic doesn’t suit me!

T5W | Hidden Gems: Thrillers

I absolutely love it when you read a book that someone has recommended that you are quite sure that you would never have discovered and read without them. I love discovering hidden gems in genres I love, and genres that I’ve never actually read before. I love lots of different books, but one of my favourite genres is thrillers. There are lots of thrillers around, some well known and some lesser known, so it’s time to share some of the hidden gems!

T5W: Books We Like to Dislike

We all have those books, the ones that you really didn’t like at all when your read them, but love to talk about and moan about to anyone in a bookish conversation. I’m not gonna lie to you, I have been known to buy the second in a series just because I know that once I have read it (and disliked it) I will enjoy moaning about it! Yep, you guessed it, that’s what this week’s Top 5 Topic is all about!

T5W: 2018 Bookish Resolutions

Welcome to the beginning of a New Year, to promises we hope to keep, adventures we hope to take, and books we hope to read. 2018 is upon us, can you believe January is here? If I am honest, January is my least favourite month of the year. It’s cold, it’s wet, everyone is in a Christmas slump, it’s financially difficult, and let’s be honest, everyone is ratty on their post Christmas diets. So, this year I am going to try and get out of a January funk and actually enjoy doing things, starting with reading.

T5W: 2018 Wishlist

Can you believe that Christmas and Boxing Day are over already? It’s my Mum’s birthday tomorrow and then it’s New Years, so like already there is lots for our family to celebrate at this time of year, but it’s going so quickly! I’ve read into so many new genres, started more recent releases, and read brand new authors over the past year, so for the first time in a long time there are new releases that are coming out in 2018 that I am really excited about!
