That’s why this week, the Top 5 Tuesday topic from Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm Blog is all about books that caused a major reading hangover!

So, which books have hit me the hardest? Let’s go down the list!

We all have our own little bookish habits, whether we realize it or not.

Since Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm Blog choose bookish habits as this week’s topic, I sat down to think. What exactly do I do when I’m reading besides, well, read? Do I have any notable habits at all?

And it turns out, the answer is yes. I am nothing if not a creature of habit, and I can’t believe I missed noticing these five habits until now!

2020’s New Releases are Coming…

My anticipated books of 2020 list is probably a mile long. Narrowing it down to only five, as per the rules for Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm’s wonderful meme, is hard.

Fingers crossed they’ll all clock in at 5 stars, huh?

Are You Trying to Rate a Book 5 Stars?

Well, aren’t we all trying to rate a book 5 stars? That would certainly be nice, encountering more 5 star reads. But what makes something worth that many stars anyway? Thankfully, Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm did the asking this week, and Top 5 Tuesday is BACK with an answer!

So. What makes a book worth all those precious stars to me? My picks today don’t guarantee 5 stars as individual features, but more often than not, seeing them in combination with one another pushes them closer!

Top 5 Tuesday || Best of 2018

Top 5 Tuesday

Technically, this isn’t an official T5T prompt, but every now and again, I am known to go a little rogue.

But who can argue with me on this one? It’s the most appropriate rogue T5T topic because this is it. The last Tuesday of the year. Why not take some time to round up the best of the best? So in no particular order, let’s go! But quickly; in the interest of saving time and getting back to all things Christmas with my family, I’m going to link to my reviews of each of the books below, and let those do all the talking for me today! Just click the cover of the book and you’ll be taken right to it!

(And Merry Christmas to those of you celebrating today!)
