Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together.
This week’s list is all about books that we liked but on recall can’t remember much/anything about! The way I tackled this list is to look at Goodreads and see which books I rated highly but couldn’t tell you much about!
I read this book in 2012. I have no recollection of it whatsoever, but apparently liked it enough to give it 4 stars!
I read this in 2011. I have some recollection of it being moving, but other than that… I got nothing!
I know I enjoyed this book at the time, but without looking at the synopsis, I couldn’t tell you what it was about.
This is another one that I read back in 2011. I can’t remember anything about it! I know my sister enjoyed it!
I adore Philippa Gregory’s writing, so I know I must have enjoyed this book. I’m a bit hazy on its details!
I remember this being quite witty!
Love the title of this book! I remember liking it but being frustrated by the ending. I couldn’t tell you what it’s about though.
I have no idea what this book was about!
I remember liking the characters in this book!
I remember liking this but I couldn’t tell you what it was about!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together. This week is Jana’s first week of hosting this weekly meme and I’d like to thank her for hosting it! I love reading everyone’s lists and putting my own together.
This week’s list is all about bookish resolutions and goals for the coming year.
Keep up to date with my ARCs!- Try not to request too many to help with this…
Read more debut authors- Catch up on 2017 releases and then work on 2018.
Reread Harry Potter. I never have time to reread so I want to change that this year. This one will be hard as I have so many others that I need to read so I have trouble with rereads!
Reread Me Before You, it’s a favourite and I want to see if it is after a re-read!
Continue to collaborate with Beth on Banned Books, Kid-Lit and our ‘Talking About’ feature.
Make more time to read to my class. I was so good at this during the first two years of my teaching career, but I seem to have stalled this year.
Schedule posts! I used to be very good at being on top of things but again, got a little slack recently. I know how much I like having my blog organised, so 2018 is the year to get back to my organised self.
Continue to cull my book collection. I’m quite good at giving books to charity if I know I’m not going to read them again. I only keep my absolute favourites.
Work on completing some series that I have pending!- I want to finish The Remnant Chronicles!
Read more graphic novels. I read a few in 2017 and really enjoy them!
What are your bookish resolutions this year? Feel free to leave a link to your post and I’ll come and have a look!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week is the last week that Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish and I just want to thank them for hosting for so long. It really is a commitment and I’ll always be grateful to them for introducing me to so many blogs and in turn, so many books. Thank you ladies!
This week’s list is all about those books that we meant to read in 2017 but never got around to them. There are a few of these and most of them were debuts! It’s my goal this year to read more debut authors, so I’ve focused mainly on 2017 debuts.
I was so excited about this book in 2016 when I heard about it, so goodness knows why I hadn’t read it yet. I’m hoping to read it ASAP!
I am excited that this is based in Tokyo. I don’t think I’ve read anything set there before. It looks like a fab contemporary read.
This is another one that I had on my radar and never got around to!
I’ve heard so many wonderful things about this book that it’s definitely become a priority for me to read in 2018.
Although I’ve heard mixed things about this book, I want to give it a try.
I’m intrigued by the premise of this book and I’ve heard some good things.
I feel like this book was everywhere recently, yet I still didn’t get around to reading it! Sums me up really…
I’m excited about this book. I want to read it ASAP! Love that cover.
I’m excited but nervous about this book. I’m worried the hype monster will get me.
I want to get around to this book in 2018. I bought it a year ago!

I had been meaning to read this book for ages and 2017 was the year I finally got around to it. A stunning read!
I absolutely loved this unique read about a girl who could not speak due to her disability and found out about an awful crime.
This book divided me. I loved but hated it in parts!
I am excited to read more from B.A. Paris as I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
This wasn’t the ‘wow’ book that I wanted it to be, but it was still a decent read!
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this one. I do love a thriller though!
This book was such a good find! I was completely captivated by it.
A fabulously dark YA thriller!
Heather’s book was fabulous. It’s been on my radar for a while now. I’m glad I got around to it in 2017.
I can’t wait to read more from C.L Taylor. A very engaging read.

I’m super excited about this book. I loved Marieke’s debut and I’m intrigued to see where her writing goes next.
The Dangerous Art Of Blending- Angelo Surmelis
I’m all about representation in YA literature and this one looks particularly intriguing. It does involve abuse though so it looks like it’ll be hard-hitting.
The Upside Of Falling Down-Rebekah Crane
This book sounds like it could be super intriguing about a girl with amnesia.
This Is Not A Love Letter- Kim Purcell
Another book that sounds incredibly gripping about a girl’s boyfriend that goes missing but there’s more to it than first meets the eye… I love the simple cover.
More Than We Can Tell- Brigid Kemmerer

Restore Me- Tahereh Mafi
I can’t wait to read more from Juliette’s point of view!

Another book that instantly caught my eye. I’m intrigued about how this story will tackle alcoholism.
Leah On The Offbeat- Becky Albertalli
I adore Becky Albertalli, so this book had to make it on here!
Love Songs & Other Lies- Jessica Pennington
I have to include a YA romance-type book! I think this one looks like it could be a fabulous.
