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!

Top 5 Tuesday || Authors From K to T

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!

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!

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?

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!
