Top 5 Tuesday || Authors I Want to Try

Top 5 Tuesday banner displaying a hand with five rings

To be honest, this T5T topic carries a lot of pressure behind it.

There are so many amazing authors out there, and I’m sure plenty of them are authors I haven’t yet picked up. But in true bookworm fashion, Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads is making me reexamine and cherish my TBR just a week after shaking my head at its towering heights. So, here are some authors I want to try sooner rather than later! Think I’ll be able to make that happen?

Top 5…Thursday? || Books I Meant to Read in 2020

Top 5 Tuesday banner displaying a hand with five rings

Will I ever survive a Top 5 Tuesday with my dignity still intact?

The answer is probably no. Especially since today’s topic, books I meant to read in 2020, seems to be Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads‘s perfect way of making me expose my towering TBR. I keeping saying I’ll read all these books, but have I gotten to them?

The answer always seems to be not yet. 😳

Also, it’s Thursday, not Tuesday, and this is a topic from two weeks ago. How’s that for chucking my dignity and blogging reliability out the window all in one go?

Top 5 Tuesday || Series I Haven’t Finished

Piggybacking off of two hours ago, we’re sticking to series!

And we’re returning to the part where I reveal how much of my TBR remains unread! In this case, we’re looking at series I haven’t finished. It must be Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads reminding me of all the books waiting on my shelf, judging me hardcore for still not picking me up.

Maybe a little shame is what it takes to see these series through to the end?

Top 5 Tuesday || Series I Want to Start

What am I doing, scrambling the T5T topics?

The truth is, the books I missed in 2020 (which you’ll see later this week) is the topic I missed two weeks ago. And series I want to start? Well, that’s actually last week’s topic! I’m pretty behind, as you can see. Is it embarrassing? Bold? Overly-ambitious? Just a chronic example of what it’s like to be a bookworm?

You be the judge of that (and if you’re a fan, let Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads know, since it was her idea)!

Top 5 Tuesday || Posts of 2020

Hope you don’t mind if I toot my own horn for a hot minute.

It’s been one hell of a year, so why shouldn’t I? Thankfully, Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads has made the final Top 5 Tuesday of the year perfect for doing so. She left us a freebie this week, and I’m using it to share my favorite posts of 2020, the ones I worked the hardest on or had the most fun sharing. I hope they’ll bring a smile to your face as we close out the year, and that there’s plenty more posts like these to come!

Top 5 Tuesday || Books of 2020

It’s time to call it: here are the very best titles of the year.

Okay, so it’s a little subjective, but hush, we knew it would be that way. That’s the whole point of Top 5 Tuesday (oh so graciously hosted by Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads)! More than that, it’s the point of naming the best five books of 2020, which is a surprisingly easy thing to do. If you’re struggling, just do what I do, and search for books you’ve rated five stars.

Or you could do what I also do and agonize over every little detail in your reviews until you’re 100% certain these are the best! Harder than it looks, I guess! 🥴

Top 5 Tuesday || Covers of 2020

If you say you’ve never judged a book by its cover, I’m not sure I believe you.

Frankly, book covers do too much work for us not to judge them. Sure, the quality of the book inside may vary, but covers are so important in that initial moment of contact, and do so much work! These covers, though, are my favorite covers of 2020, and the topic of today’s Top 5 Tuesday post! Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads is the wonderful host, and is absolutely killing me with her excellent topic choices!

Now, let’s judge some covers. Some really, really good covers.

Top 5 Tuesday || Books on my Holiday Wishlist

I genuinely only asked for one thing this year: books.

Never mind that my TBR is staring at me with the most judgmental of looks. I have all kinds of books on my holiday wishlist, and today, I’m sharing the five I’d be most excited to receive! It’s all thanks to Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads, who runs Top 5 Tuesday and regularly encourages me to make my TBR bigger. It’s a mutual antagonism, filled with holiday cheer!

Top 5 Tuesday || Friend Recommendations

usually trust my friends.

Granted, every now and again, it’s a bad idea (like the time my roommate wanted me to join in on drunk kung fu lessons on the hardwood floor while wearing socks; love you, friend, but no thanks). But most of the time, friend recommendations are a delight, because they come from someone who knows you and loves you and wants you to experience good things. And thanks to Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads, I’ve collected a quick list of the best ones I’ve ever received.

Which, admittedly, come from, like, two people. But they’re two people who know my tastes, and I’m so grateful for that!

Top 5 Tuesday || Books I’m Glad I Read

Some books never leave you, and it’s for the very best.

Thanks to Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads, today I get to celebrate some of the books I’m glad I read! These five titles are hardly an inclusive list, but they do mark some of the books that have made the most profound impact on me lately. I can’t imagine where I’d be as a reader without them, and I suspect I’ll revisit them all more often than others on my shelves!
