Top 10 Tuesday: Books I Can’t Believe I Read

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

I read pretty much anything I set my mind to. That does mean I can flick from having read a meaty thriller one day to a happier chick lit book the day after. That said, there are some books that I’ve never expected I would read. Some because I never thought I would get away with reading them, some because I was a low key fan girl, some I just turrned that last page and thought “wait what was that?” I would like to share some of these books with you now. I’ll let you decide which book fits in which category.

Top 10 Tuesday: Bookish Resolutions and Goals for 2018

I’ve been a book blogger for five and a half years now, but this will be my very first  time taking part in Top 10 Tuesday. That isn’t to say I haven’t come across the hugely popular series, though. I’ve seen it in its original guise, created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This year, it will be finding a new home with Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl, so if you’d also like to fill in some of the blanks you can find all of the topics on her blog.

Tag Thursday: The Disney Princess Book Tag

For someone who loves Disney and books in equal measure, finding a tag that encapsulated both was the dream. This was created by Of Stacks and Cups, who I firmly believe would be one of my best friends if we were ever to meet in the real world.

  1. My favourite Disney princess is Belle, because I feel like she’s the one I most resemble. Looking for some bookish, nerdy outsiders? We’re your woman.
  2. The Snow White and the Seven Dwarves ending freaked me out when I was a kid. I couldn’t get over the change between the Queen from young lady to old hag. And don’t start me on the cliff scene.
  3. The first Disney Princess movie I owned was Pocahontas, and I watched the tape of it at least every week. It came out when I was four, in 1996. My first classic was Sleeping Beauty.

Tag Thursday: Things Cats Do Book Tag

Last year, June 15th was a pretty dark day as we said goodbye to the true pet of the family – my cat Lucky. Six months later, her mother Alfie followed.

Coincidentally, Tag Thursday falls on the date one year on. I found the Things Cats Do tag on Kate’s blog, and it seems like the perfect fit for this month.

So, June’s Tag Thursday is tinged with a little bit of sadness. This tag is dedicated to my three little best friends, two of whom I’ve said goodbye to in the last year, and a one year memorial to my little pal.
