Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

August was a bit of a YALC-comedown month. I was definitely feeling the post-convention lull, but I decided to take part in ARC August to get through some of the books I picked up.

I don’t think it’s… Continue reading Books I want to read before YALC (if I can find enough hours in the day)
Last weekend, I hosted #EasterReadathon for the second time, and spent the whole bank holiday reading and relaxing. It was great. This year, I read more books than last year, hosted more sprints on Twitter, and set challenges for the readathon, which a lot of people took part in (this made me so happy!). Books… Continue reading Easter Readathon Wrap Up // Graphic novels and cute contemporaries
On Saturday, I announced that I was running #EasterReadathon for the second year in a row, and that this time there would be challenges and a giveaway. Today I’m sharing my TBR for the readathon, and which books I’m reading for each challenge. I’ve decided to try and read six books for Easter Readathon and… Continue reading Easter Readathon TBR
