Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is all about authors. Authors we’d love to meet or can’t believe we’ve met. I’ve decided to go for author’s that I’d love to meet even if I would go a little fangirly on them.
Jojo Moyes- Me Before You is one of my favourite books of all time. I’d be happy to be able to tell Jojo just how much I loved her books!
Jolene Perry- I have enjoyed Jolene’s books so much! They’re much deeper than you’d expect which is great.
Cecelia Ahern- I have loved Cecelia’s writing since P.S. I Love You. Her writing is just so magical.
Alison Rattle- I adore Alison Rattle. Her books are so evocative.
Emma Carroll- Another writer I adore. I nearly got to meet her last year but I was too nervous to say hi!
Giovanna Fletcher- I love Giovanna’s writing and she seems like a lovely, bubbly person.
David Walliams- My class adore David’s books. I’d love to tell them I met him!
Michael Rosen- I adore Michael Rosen. I saw him talking at a conference the other weekend, but didn’t have chance to meet him. Sad times.
Kate Karyus Quinn- It would be interesting to have a conversation with Kate to see what she’s like as a person as her books are WEIRD (but wonderful!)
Markus Zusak- I think he would also be fascinating to talk to!
Who have you met before? Have you met any of these authors? Feel free to leave a link to your post and I’ll stop by!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are ten short books/one sitting reads etc. I decided to go for Ten Books That’ll Make You Read The Day Away.

The Help- Kathryn Stockett
I thought this was such a powerful read. I devoured this book and have highly recommend it since!
The Name On Your Wrist- Helen Hiorns
I thought that this novella had such a unique story-line. I’d highly recommend it!
Slumber- Tamara Blake
I love this fairy tale-esque story. It didn’t take me long to read at all.
George- Alex Gino
I could have easily read this book in one sitting. It didn’t take me long to read at all. It’s such a powerful, touching read.
A Monster Calls- Patrick Ness
Another brilliant read. This book moved me and I’ll continue to recommend it highly whenever I can.
The Last Act Of Love- Cathy Rentzenbrink
This book is amazing. I was entirely moved by it and couldn’t stop turning the pages!
The Quietness- Alison Rattle
I love Alison Rattle’s books and I could have easily listed ALL of her releases. Her writing is incredibly evocative. It’s so easy to read.
The Sky Is Everywhere- Jandy Nelson
I adore this book! I read it so many years ago and it still stays with me.
Crush- Eve Ainsworth
This book is incredible. From its title, you might think it’s a sweet read, but it’s much darker than you might anticipate…
Dangerous Girls- Abigail Haas
I absolutely love this book and think it’s incredibly underrated. I really enjoyed this book and practically devoured it in one sitting.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. I thought I’d put up a Top Ten post today although there’s no official prompt this week. I thought I’d go for a freebie! I’m going to list ten odd search terms that have somehow managed to hit my blog! This is all in good fun and I don;t mean any offence by it!
- How to direct a friend to your school
- Short story about my room
- Semalt expert
- Dares to do in public
- She swam in her school uniform (That would be inconvenient!)
- Cigarette meaning
- Do books affect religion?
- Shall I finish my Primary PGCE? (If it’s something you want to do…yes. It gets better!)
- Who should review a book? (Anyone that wants to!)
- Death of young Chrissi (this one really freaked me out!)

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. For this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, it’s all about books we loved or disliked more than we thought. Now, for most of these books I did like them, just not as much as I had first thought I would. You may enjoy them! Each to their own they say…
For the Goodreads page, please click on the book image!
More Of Me- Kathryn Evans
I wasn’t that impressed with this book unfortunately. I wanted to love it because the synopsis sounded incredible, but for me, it didn’t work.
Another Day- David Levithan
I LOVED Every Day but I don’t think this book was necessary. I felt a little let down by it.
What We Left Behind- Robin Talley
I loved Robin’s debut, so I was sad to be disappointed by this.
After You- Jojo Moyes
It was always a gamble to read a sequel to one of my favourite books. This book didn’t work for me, unfortunately.
Ballet Shoes- Noel Streatfeild
I wanted to love this book! 😦
The Fault In Our Stars- John Green
I know, I know. Most people love it. I liked it but wasn’t blown away.
The Coldest Girl In Coldtown- Holly Black
I thought I’d love this book, but it wasn’t quite what I thought it would be.
Me & Earl & The Dying Girl- Jesse Andrews
This book was okay, but I thought it was going to be WOW!
Everything I Never Told You- Celeste Ng
I feel like so many people would love this book but it didn’t quite work for me.
Those Girls- Lauren Saft
I thought this would be a fun book but sadly it wasn’t. It really irritated me at points.
I’m really intrigued to see what you’ve posted this week, so feel free to leave a link to your post and I’ll stop by!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is Valentine’s themed, so I thought I’d go with some of my favourite relationships. I was open to listing friendships as well, but that would make my list so long, so I decided just to go with romantic relationships.

One of my favourite couples ever. Can you hear the sound of my heart breaking?!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are Ten Books We Wish Had More…. I decided to go slightly off theme and go for Top Ten Books I Wish Had Sequels. I think some books are best as standalones but there are a few books that I grew very attached to that I desperately wanted more from.
I did this post back in 2013 and there are definitely some new additions to it!
As ever, click on the book image to get to Goodreads!
A Boy Made Of Blocks- Keith Stuart
This book has such a special place in my heart. I’d love to see how the story continued for the family.
The Lost Girl- Sangu Mandanna
When I read this book I thought it was a gem. It really surprised me and made me want more!

Such a cute read. I’d love to see how their story continued.
Eleanor & Park- Rainbow Rowell
Just because! It’s my favourite Rainbow Rowell book.
Lola and The Boy Next Door- Stephanie Perkins
I know that Lola isn’t a favourite of many bloggers, but it was my favourite in the companion series. I LOVED Lola as a character and would love to know more.
Speak- Laurie Halse Anderson
A very memorable read. I wish I could know more about how things progressed with the main protagonist.

Just a chance to read more about this cute relationship would be good enough for me!
