Top Ten Tuesday: Books I HAD to Buy but Still Haven’t Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. It’s a throwback freebie this week and I just have to do this one related to book shopping. Lately I’ve been noticing my reading pattern, which is I always tend to read the book that interests me most at the moment than picking one off my shelf to clear my TBR. There are quite a lot of books I still haven’t read that have been sitting on my shelf forever. Here’s a salute to ten of them.

August Wrap-up & September TBR

monthlynewestsepI have no idea what has happened to me in August because I read 12 books, people. TWELVE BOOKS. I have outdone myself again, but what’s strange is that I don’t even remember reading that much. Really, I don’t even remember what I did for most of August. Is my mind still functioning normally? I’m pretty paranoid.

My Dream Panel

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!

Top Ten Tuesday: Recommendations for Readers Looking for Quick Reads

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.

July Wrap-up & August TBR

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.

My Dream Reading Nook

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!
