Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is a cover list. We all like an appealing cover. We can’t get away from that!
Here are some pretty Autumn/Fall covers that caught my eye. They may not look like an Autumn cover, but they’d make me want to read them Autumn if that makes sense.

These book covers just give me a colder weather, snuggled up inside with a good book vibe!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. For this week’s list I have thought about my favourite books set in the U.K. Some of these books have featured on Top Ten lists before of mine, but I just can’t help myself.
In no particular order (book images go to Goodreads…)
Harry Potter- J.K Rowling
This book really doesn’t need an introduction or any sort of explanation does it? I absolutely loved this series and I’m so proud that it’s set in England!
Code Name Verity- Elizabeth Wein
I love this book. It’s set in England in 1941. Such a touching story.
Me Before You- Jojo Moyes
One of my all time favourites. This hasn’t been on my blog at all before!
I lie. I lie.
Dead Jealous- Sharon Jones
This wonderful book is a mix of YA/mystery and paranormal. I loved reading it and the next book is awesome too.
Golden Boy-Abigail Tarttelin
Golden Boy is a simply beautiful, important, powerful book.
Little Women- Louisa May Alcott
I know that this book has multiple settings but some of it does take place in Europe. This is one of my favourite classics.
The Other Boleyn Girl- Philippa Gregory
The Other Me- Saskia Sarginson
Part of this book is set in London. I didn’t expect to like this book as much as I did, but I thought it was wonderful!
I Let You Go- Clare Mackintosh
This thriller surprised me. It was another one where my expectations were completed exceeded.
A Monster Calls- Patrick Ness
Patrick Ness is a genius. I loved this book even if it broke me a little bit.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are the Top Ten book to movie adaptations. I don’t actually watch a lot of book to movie adaptations. I tend to think the book is better, but here are ten I don’t mind!
A Little Princess- A little different to the book, but good nonetheless! I adored this movie as a child.
Little Women- One of my favourite classics. I think Winona Ryder was a perfect Jo March!
Harry Potter- I don’t think the adaptations are flawless, but they’re so good!
Divergent- I enjoyed Divergent and was hoping I’d like the adaptation. I was pleased with it. Again, not flawless, but decent, in my opinion anyway!
The Hunger Games– An adaptation done very well indeed.
One Day- I know that not everyone likes this adaptation but I was pleasantly surprised by it.
The Help- I was nervous with this one as it’s one of my favourite books, but it’s so faithful to the wonderful book.
Gone Girl– Rosamund Pike was so well cast!
Marley and Me– This one got me good. I can’t help but cry to it!
A Walk To Remember– I know a lot of people roll their eyes at Nicholas Sparks, but I really enjoyed A Walk To Remember. Such a touching book and movie.
What have you added to your list? Are you as cautious of adaptations as I am? Feel free to leave a link to your blog and I’ll stop by!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are the Top Ten characters who are fellow book nerds. I love this topic! I love a bookworm, but I have found it a bit tricky to think about who to include! Has anyone else had this problem?!
Book images go to Goodreads
Matilda- Roald Dahl
Matilda is the ultimate bookworm. I absolutely love her and think she’s such a great character for children!
Celaena-Throne of Glass
I love that Celaena is kick ass and a bookworm! 😀
Jo March- Little Women
Jo was one of the first bookworms that I read about. I loved how much she enjoyed books and writing stories.
Cath is a fantastic, relatable character. I adored her!
Liesel- The Book Thief
Of course, Liesel has to be mentioned in a list like this. Liesel has a great love for books!
Hermione- Harry Potter
Hermione is one of the ultimate bookworms. I love how into her books she is and how powerful they are to her.
Juliette- Shatter Me
Juliette isn’t the most obvious choice, as when I think of her I think of her strength, but she is a book lover for escapism!
Hazel/Gus- The Fault In Our Stars
John Green doesn’t frequently feature in my Top Ten lists, but there’s no denying that Hazel and Gus are wonderfully bookish.
Isla- Isla And The Happily Ever After
It took me a while to think about adding Isla, but when I thought about it, Isla really likes reading about adventures rather than taking part in adventures. She’s shy and unassuming. A character that’s easy to relate to.
Anne- Anne of Green Gables
Another wonderful bookish character. I think it’s lovely that book nerds are represented in children’s literature!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are our Top Ten Favourite Heroines From Books. I have completed a list similar to this before with strong female leads, but I’ve added some new additions since then. So here is my revised list in no particular order…
(Book images go to Goodreads!)
Jo March- Little Women –
She doesn’t conform to the ‘usual’ female roles. One of my favourite characters in literature!
Katniss- The Hunger Games-
Strong in every possible way!
Definitely her own person. Very headstrong.
Matilda- Matilda by Roald Dahl
She faces awful parents and a terrible headteacher. I love the little bookworm that is Matilda!
Skeeter, Aibileen and Minny- The Help
I absolutely love these ladies from The Help. I especially admire Skeeter for trying to make a difference.
Juliette- Shatter Me trilogy
Juliette’s strength as a person grows so much throughout the series!
Celaena Sardothien- Throne Of Glass-
She’s a kick ass book loving character!
A fiesty and intelligent character!
Poppy Sinclair- Dead Jealous/Dead Silent-
Likeable and real!
Rowan- Me Since You
A heroine in different ways to others in this list. Strong despite terrible things happening to her.

The British Book Challenge was set up to show support for British Authors. By signing up I promised to read at least 12 books by British Authors. That’s equal to one book a month.
It’s safe to say that I exceeded this challenge this year.
