This year I’m trying to bring back my Fictional Friday feature where I share something book related every (other) week. I don’t want to make any promises, as you know, last year was a blogging disaster for me. Especially when it came to book posts which I think were non-existent. Yet, your girl still loves books and is surrounded by them daily (literally sleeping in between bookshelves, guys). In other words, it’s time to share my favourite books from 2019.
Before you do a double take and arch your eyebrows, yes, I haven’t really been posting Fictional Fridays. Blame my inability to plan three regular posts a week, blame my laziness, whatever works. The reason I’m bringing this feature back, is so I can share books I bought with me on my holiday.
It’s Friday, and I’m finally posting another Fictional Friday for you guys. I know I meant to make this into a weekly feature but I’ve been suffering under a reading slump. Which apparently is affecting my motivation to post literature-related content on my blog. This week I’m sharing a few recent book purchases, and reasons why I bought them.
Creating this feature on my blog at the beginning of the year, I didn’t really expect it to be so sparse. So I will try to be more consistent from now. This week’s post is all about those latest book purchases that jumped from a TBR to my nightstand.
This week is turning into a romance explosion, and honestly, I didn’t plan this. It just.. happened, and once I realised, it was too late. Besides, this week seems to be the best time to dive into my favourite literature trope – fake relationship. For those who are not familiar, it’s basically a relationship the main characters agree to fake it in front of everyone. The reasons behind this are always different, but the faking itself is what I grave for. I just love it when two characters have to jump past the actual falling in love part, and work their way backwards of sorts. Here are my 5 favourite books that have a fake relationship trope.
As mentioned last week, I sort of completely failed my reading challenge for this year, and I won’t be trying to do any TBR’s in the near future. That’s just not for me. But I do want to keep up with reading wrap ups and this one is the first of 2018. I didn’t read much, and my reading tempo has been on the slower side so far, but I’m keeping up and enjoying myself – which is all that matters.
This Friday I want to cram a lot of information into one post because I feel like I need to. You see, I keep getting tagged in these awesome book tags over on my bookstagram account, and I rarely actually do them. But when I was tagged twice on Wednesday, I got the hint and decided to do one of them for my Fictional Friday post. Oh, and the explanation part of the title will be revealed at the end.
Here comes one of the most important posts of the year, the reading wrap up of the entire year! 2017 for me was pretty great, considering I read 70 books and so many of those books were actually pretty darn good. I did have a few misses but not the worst year, considering I DNF’d only two books, one less than last year. There are a lot of YA romance novels and romance novels in this list because I was pushing myself to finish my reading challenge with easy reads all year. But without any further ado, find out which books I loved, which ones I didn’t and which I felt neutral about!
Here we go, I’m sharing my first attempt to stick to an actual TBR that I’ve decided on beforehand. It’s not something I’ve ever been good at, setting a specific reading goal for a month but it’s a new year and a new me! I hope I get to the end of the month with a smile on my face, and I hope I won’t be disappointing myself by not following through these TBR’s. But with no further ado, here’s my TBR pile for the month of January!
