It’s not unusual for me to be…a little bit behind.
I tend to be late to the party on a lot of things, including books. Sometimes, I’m lucky and get ahead (bless you, NetGalley ARC gods), but more often than not? I’m clueless until wayyyy after the fact. This is especially true with popular books, too!
Which naturally means that Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm Blog has made today’s T5T capable of exposing me for what I am: a procrastinator who knows the mainstream exists about a year after the fact. Do you know how long it took me to read Children of Blood and Bone? To give Sadie a shot?
Oh well. Why don’t you just give me hell for these late arrivals to my shelf instead? I’m ready for it. Go ahead. Let the roast begin.

Okay, I have to admit things haven’t changed…that much.
I’m an introvert at heart, which means my routine doesn’t look much different than usual, save for no work and no travel beyond grocery or pharmacy trips. But the external stress of, well, everything means I still need some sanity savers. I may not get cabin fever like my more extroverted family members, but anxiety? Oh, that’s very real.
But Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm Blog gets it, and today’s T5T topic is for all the things that are still enjoyable right now! Hopefully between my post and everyone else’s, you can find some things to try while you’re working on keeping it together, whether it’s cabin fever getting to you, anxiety riling you up, or just a general, looming sense of dread hovering over things. Let’s take it one thing at a time, like this list, and hopefully we’ll see the other side.

What’s T5T without the occasional T6T?
Since the alphabet so unfortunately does not divide into fives neatly, today, we’ve got six favorite authors from U to Z! That said, some letters gave me more trouble than others, so maybe we’re back down to five?
Anyhow, before we get into it, a big thanks to Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm Blog for putting together another excellent month of T5T prompts!

When I say Top 5 Tuesday, I really mean Top 10.
I was supposed to do K through O last week, but stress decided to slide tackle me into oblivion. But never fear! We’re tackling authors from K to T today, smashing two entire Top 5 Tuesday prompts together! It’s ambitious, it’s exciting, and it’s hopefully not too outlandish? I guess Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm Blog will have to be the judge of that, since she runs the prompts.
Without further ado, though…here’s ten of my favorites!

If you’re not singing the alphabet in your head to get through this list, what are you doing?
Going only five letters at a time means I keep forgetting to look at the official March T5T topic list from Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm Blog, and I just go through the alphabet in my head until I have the letters I need. Why do things the easy way? Isn’t the pointlessly longer route more fun? But setting debates about alphabetical efficiency aside, here’s my list of top authors from F to J!

Ah, yes, the cornerstone of all lists: the alphabet.
A while back, Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm Blog did an A to Z T5T series focused on favorite books. Now, she’s turned the tables and brought it back, this time for favorite authors! Today, we’re looking at authors from A to E to kick March off!

Sometimes, you just need a book to leave you reeling for a little while.
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! They seem few and far between, but they’re each a gem in their own right. I love them because they left me wanting even more, so much that I wasn’t willing to move onto another book right away!
Even if I had to keep reading, because I refuse to let ARC deadlines get the better of me.
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!

Some books are exactly what you expect…and some go above and beyond!
Typically, I’m pretty good at guessing how much I’ll like a book, but today’s T5T topic is all about the books that exceeded expectations! Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm Blog gave us a topic that’s perfect for sharing hidden gems, don’t you think?
So go on, take a look at the books that impressed me the most!

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.
Never let it be said I back down from a challenge, though, because here they are: my top five picks for the whole year.
Fingers crossed they’ll all clock in at 5 stars, huh?
