T5W: Disappointing Books of 2018

We all have our favourite books of the year, I posted a Top Ten books of 2018, and so did many other people. We have a tendency to focus on the books that we really liked or took us by surprise, and we never really think to talk about the books that disappointed us. I’m not talking about books that we really didn’t like, or books that we absolutely despised, but making that distinction that we’re talking books that disappointed us. Y’know, the overly hyped ones that were average, the ones that you take a punt on and weren’t the risk, yep, those ones. The thing is, I didn’t hate any of them. Some of them were given 3 stars because they were OK, they just weren’t what I was expecting.

T5W: Books I Didn’t Get To in 2018

Happy St. Stephen’s Day! Happy Boxing Day! Happy Hump Day! Whatever you celebrate, I hope you’re having a fantastic Wednesday, and if you’re a Christmas kinda person, I hope your Christmas was filled with fun and happiness and lots of great food! I had a really nice Christmas, lots of good food, family, generous gifts, and even a quiet bit of reading and TV watching in the evening. It made me think about the books I was given, and also, the books I have at home that I really wanted to read this year and never managed to! This Top 5 Wednesday came at a pretty good time then really, didn’t it?!

T5W: Great Books To Give Aliens As Gifts

Hello hello you lovely readers, and welcome to Liz goes a bit overboard with this week’s topic idea. This week T5W is all about great books that we’d give ________ as gifts, y’know, Ravenclaws, or Pirates, or something, but I decided I wanted to do a list of 5 books I would add into a care package/gift for aliens who had landed on Earth and had decided they wanted to give a go at reading books. They’re varied, they’re favourites, and I’m pleased I went OTT this week.

T5W: Books I Want To Read Before 2019

Howdy folks! I realise that today is probably your average hump day for anyone else, but it’s pretty good for me. It’s my day of because IT’S MY BIRTHDAY. Whoop, Happy Birthday to Me! I had a great pre-birthday celebration this year as I have recently got back from a two week trip to Florida and I bought myself lots of presents. I spoilt myself, and got some pretty awesome gifts from friends and family too, including books. Look at that perfect lead into this week’s post: Books I Want To Read Before 2019.

There are quite a few books that I really want to read at the moment, and quite a few of them that I want to read all at once right this minute, but this list is limited by both time and title, so it’s going to be five. It’s so hard to choose!

T5W: Favourite Cosplay

Hello princes and princesses, I’m currently in Disney World having a magical time! It’s a bit hot too dress up here but that’s not stopping the hoards of Halloween obsessives from dressing up in any manner of weird and wonderful costumes. Speaking of, this week’s topic is a pretty cool Halloween but not actually Halloween topic, it’s all about dressing up and Cosplay. I’ve never really taken part in any Cosplay etc. if I am being honest, but, I love admiring the incredible outfits that people come up with and so with that in mind, check out my list of 5 favourite Cosplay ideas.

T5W: Favourite Book Covers of 2018

This topic comes up in various forms across similar memes and tags and is something I have done in many forms before. It has, however, been a while since I did one. So, when I saw that this week’s topic was favourite book covers, I adapted that to be covers of new releases in 2018. The reason? There has been some seriously pretty books released this year so it makes for one stunning post!
