Top Ten Tuesday #26
Happy Tuesday, book nerds!
So yesterday during a casual Twitter chat I realized that I’ve been blogging “semi-seriously” for almost a year now. In fact, the end of July will mark the 1 year anniversary of this site! This is a completely baffling fact to me and I’ll have to save all my praise and thoughts for a later post because I need time to gather my thoughts (read: emotions) about this!
One quick thing I will say is that I’ve obviously loved connecting with friends/readers the most. I love learning from them on everything from which books to read, how to acquire ARCs, how to buddy read, and all the different tags/challenges/readathons that take place annually to encourage reading. I bring this up because one of my absolute favorites informed me just yesterday about a readathon that’s taking place from July 9 – July 15 called Smutathon. That’s right Smutathon. And y’all know your girl is going to be partaking. In fact, I think it took like .005 seconds between Mel informing me of this challenge and me scheduling a buddy read with her! So stay tuned to hear how I do with all my kissing books! 😉
And now for the reason you’re all here! It’s time for another round of TOP TEN TUESDAY hosted by Jana at ThatArtsyReaderGirlThis week’s topic is Best Books I’ve Read In 2018 (So Far). And y’all I was SO close to staying on topic this week. I’m going to post the Best Books I’ve read in 2018 (So Far), but because I wasn’t super over the moon with ALL ten selections, I’m also going to be listing 10 books that had I read sooner I believe would be making this list. To elaborate, I started doing monthly book haul posts 5 months ago. So I’m picking 2 books from each of the past 5 month’s hauls and making my ASAP TBR with them! Thus you’ll get my TOP TEN BOOKS I’VE READ IN 2018 (SO FAR) & TBR!!
