Characters I Want To See More From

This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph from A Little But A Lot.

Do you ever find yourself pining after a character you’ve fallen in love with? It happens to me pretty much constantly, and there are a lot of characters I’d love to get a “where are they now” type sequel. I love “where are they now” endings in books, because I feel like it ties everything up perfectly and leaves no room for guessing. So, I’m going to humbly ask for a WATN for some of my favourite characters throughout my reading life.

Ten Years of Book Love

This post is part of Top 10 Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl

I’ve got a lot of book love in me, and I like to spread it out as much as I can. There are a couple of books every year that really stand out to me, but if I had to rank the last ten years, how would I do it? With so many books I loved dearly from the last 10 years, can I narrow each into just one top read?

I’m hoping this will be a little easier than I’m making it out to be in my head. I’m going through all the books I’ve ever read on my Goodreads list and taking a look at what year they were released to help form my opinions.

Books from 2019 on my TBR

This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph from A Little But A Lot.

I have my eye on a couple of books from 2019 that will need to slowly make their way up my TBR. Some are from authors whose fortunes I’ve followed for years, while a couple are newer discoveries for me.

That’s one of the things I love most about reading – mixing between the comfort of reading your long-loved favourite authors, and delighting in finding a new author to love. So, it makes sense the list of books I’m looking forward to in 2019 is a perfect mix of that.

As per usual, Steph hasn’t given me enough space to talk at all – I could have gone all day with my list of books.

Tag Thursday: The Hamilton Book Tag

I’m as much of a musical nut as I am a bookworm. One of my favourite musicals of the last five years has got to be Hamilton. I discovered the soundtrack one day in work, played it through, and subsequently couldn’t stop singing. I saw the West End show in July 2018 with a friend, and spent the entire show crying. If musicals are your jam and you can go to see this at all, then go.

When I discovered the Hamilton Book Tag, which was created by booktuber Maureen, I knew I couldn’t say no to this. (Cheap shot, I know.)

Warning: some of the answers to this tag will be spoilers because that’s the nature of the question.
