T5W: Best Books of 2018 So Far

Hellooooooo you guys. How is everybody doing on this particularly warm 4th of July (at least it is here in the UK). I know that this is how times and dates work, but it’s already July which means somehow half the year has already gone. Where did it go? What happened? What did you read? I haven’t done Top 5 Wednesday regularly in a little while, but I’m all for retrospective looks at our recent reads (I think my blog name is a clue, right?) So I thought I’d look at some of the best books I’ve read in 2018 because this is a really good topic!

T5W: LGBTQ+ Books

I am sure you have probably realised already, but if you’re not aware, this month is PRIDE month. I have to say I don’t make a big deal about PRIDE month, not because I don’t care about anyone who identifies as LGBTQ+, but because no-one should really have to ‘come out’ or identify, you should just be able to be you, but wanting to at least do something, this Top 5 Wednesday came at the right time.

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: Science Fiction and Fantasy Media Crossover

So, I’m back to posting the actual topic of the week, because this week there is an awesome crossover theme linking other forms of media other than books. I love me a good book, but, I also really enjoy a solid Science fiction world or foreign fantasy land, and done well they are equally as magical, and sometimes more memorable than those capture within the pages of a book. So, this week, I have embraced the Science Fiction and Fantasy crossover, and looked into some of my favourite SFF world’s in the media!

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!
