Irishathon TBR Ideas

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

Happy St Patrick’s Day! Our national holiday is the perfect time to get a little bit of green into your reading. Luckily, there’s a great readathon happening at the moment to help you out.

The Irishathon is a month long readathon run by Aoife (not me), Elaine, and Leanne. I would love to say I’m taking part, but unfortunately the announcements completely passed me by. So, instead I’m going to share some books I would read were I taking part. Who knows, this could be some inspiration for you.

Dream Bookish Family

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

One thing I really love about reading is how much books celebrate family. While my own family are pretty awesome, I can’t lie and say there aren’t some fictional people I’d slot into their place. Our family is our family, and often we’re not able to choose who gets to be in it. If I had to start over, this is who I’d like to have in my family.

Review: Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

Challenge prompt: A book about or involving social media.


A fresh, irresistible rom-com from debut author Emma Lord about the chances we take, the paths life can lead us on, and how love can be found in the opposite place you expected.

Meet Pepper, swim team captain, chronic overachiever, and all-around perfectionist. Her family may be falling apart, but their massive fast-food chain is booming ― mainly thanks to Pepper, who is barely managing to juggle real life while secretly running Big League Burger’s massive Twitter account.

Enter Jack, class clown and constant thorn in Pepper’s side. When he isn’t trying to duck out of his obscenely popular twin’s shadow, he’s busy working in his family’s deli. His relationship with the business that holds his future might be love/hate, but when Big League Burger steals his grandma’s iconic grilled cheese recipe, he’ll do whatever it takes to take them down, one tweet at a time.

Books with Numbers in the Title

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

Most people are either logistically inclined or creative minded. I am for sure the latter. I loved languages in school, and absolutely despised maths lessons. That fact is made even more interesting when you know my mother was my maths teacher for three years.

Surprisingly, this has meant I’ve also pretty much skipped any book with numbers and counting across the board. It took me a VERY long time to realise the significance of the chapter numbers in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime (spoiler: they’re all prime numbers. I was almost finished before I realised, and that was because my Dad told me.)
