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 🙂
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. I love this week’s theme because it’s a reminder I should start these series asap and it’s easy to list them out because I have a lot of them on my TBR. Most of them are fantasy series because if you’re an SFF fan you know how much time you gotta put into reading the first book. THE WORLD BUILDING!!! You don’t want to rush.
In my first Bookish Dream Crate post, I said I would make it a monthly feature but I missed last month’s. Now I’m making up for it by putting together a dream crate for June. I have chosen a highly anticipated YA fantasy book in which the heroine will do anything to claim magic.
Can you guess which book it is?
