TTT: Books On My Fall 2018 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Theme: Books On My Fall 2018 TBR
–Fitting since the first day of Fall here is on September 22nd 🙂

I don’t think I did one of these for Summer since I knew I’d busy with moving and starting a new job. That was probably for the best! I read so much anyhow, I should have time to read all the following books… especially since I already have a few out from the library ^_^

TBR Highs & Lows #4

I did good only adding 6 books last week, but I’ve been reading so slowly that my TBR count isn’t dropping like I hoped 😦 Here is this post again to give relief to my TBR list!

  • Sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, ascending

T5W: Books For My Younger Self

Theme: Books For My Younger Self
— Books that you wish your younger self would have read to learn a life lesson, get more self confidence, open your eyes to a new perspective, etc.

So, here’s the thing. I was a reading machine when I was younger (lol like I’m not now), but when I was in middle school I didn’t really read middle grade fiction…even in high school I read more adult books than YA books. I wanted mysteries and thrillers, and my parents probably wanted to carry less books on their vacation, so we would read the same books. 

At this point, I feel like I really missed out! I did read City of Bones, but I never continued it! I probably would have loved it… 

Anyhow, here are the books  I wish I had read when I was in Middle School/High School for various reasons: Continue reading “T5W: Books For My Younger Self”
