Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week I’m talking to you about YA books that I haven’t seen many book bloggers mention in their posts. I’ll also break them down into sub-genre so it would be easier for you to find those you’re interested in!
The first time I know about Book Cons was watching booktube. I’m always jealous that readers in the USA and UK have many different book cons to go to, even though they have to fly to another state or city for some. In Hong Kong, there’s only an annual book fair to go to, and it doesn’t include a wide range of books. Each stall is selling the same books, only with different discounts. I used to love going before I discovered Book Despository, but now, not so much.
After finding out about Eventbrite, a self-service ticketing platform that helps people to find and plan events, I really want to make a post about my dream conference panel!
I’m so glad Top Ten Tuesday is back! I need prompts for my blog and TTT is always my favorite. It definitely keeps my blog going. If you don’t know what TTT is, it’s a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish to talk about books according to the topic. This week we have a recommendation freebie and I’ve decided to put together a list of my favorite quick reads.
I was book crazy in July. Again, I challenged myself with books that are out of my comfort zone like I did in June and I’m now starting to get used to reading more sophisticated works. At the same time, I find myself reading and purchasing fewer YA, and my reading habits have changed. The way I use Goodreads has changed too. For YA, I’m now mostly looking for those with controversy topics such as rape, racism, and LGBTQ. I’m not adding every book to my Goodreads TBR now. I’ll sometimes read an excerpt to see if I like it before adding. Is it a good sign of change? It is, I’m sure.
If I had to set a theme for this box it would be “VILLAINS”. I guess it’s pretty obvious which July release I’ve picked for this month’s bookish dream crate!
How are you guys doing? Sorry for not posting as much as usual this month. I haven’t been in the mood of writing reviews lately. I wrote mini reviews on my Goodreads account though, so if you are interested, go check them out!
Instead of posting a review, today I have something fun to share with you guys. I’ve never talked about my dream place for reading but I sure have thought about it a lot. I feel so lucky that the team at Arhaus has inspired me to write about it. So now I’m gonna show you guys what are the must-haves for my dream reading nook!
I thought I wouldn’t have time for books in June but I’m happy I did and read more than I expected. I managed to finish 8 books and DNF one. Some of them I actually enjoyed and I’m reading more diverse books, which I’m proud of. It’s actually one of my bookish goals this year and I’m happy I’m on my way to learning more from different genre 🙂
