Top 10 Tuesday | Lesser Known Books I Meant to Read in 2018

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly book tag that was run by The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a different bookish theme those deep-seated desires to list! Anyone is welcome to join in on their blog, in the comments or any other way. 

If there’s one thing all of us book bloggers have in common, it’s our very long lists of books we meant to read at some time or another and there are so many books in the world that it’s only natural that some always seem to get left behind more than others. Throughout all of 2018 and the beginning of this month, I’ve already shared many lists of books that I meant to read and these lists often mention the same books over and over again. So, instead of sharing big name books that always get attention I thought I would with you all some of the lesser known books on my 2018 TBR that I didn’t get round to instead!

Book Tag | Out of my Comfort Zone

Kathy recently did this really fun tag and at 1.30am when I couldn’t sleep I thought ‘what better way to spend the early hours of the morning’. As you might have noticed I tend to read a lot of science fiction. The one rule of this tag is that you have to choose one genre you frequently read and you can’t use any books from that genre to answer the prompts, so it will be an interesting exercise for my semi-tired brain!

Top 10 Tuesday | Black History Month (UK)

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly book tag that was run by The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a different bookish theme those deep-seated desires to list! Anyone is welcome to join in on their blog, in the comments or any other way. 

This week’s prompt for TTT was actually “Bookstores/Libraries I’ve Always Wanted to Visit”, but as it’s Black History Month in the UK this month I wanted to give you all some recommendations for that instead. Last year for a TTT prompt on favourite British fiction, I shared a list of diverse British fiction in response to the numerous lists which focused overwhelmingly on whitewashed and middle-class Britishness.

October TBR | Black History Month

Hello Panda friends!

October is set to be a super busy month for me. If you saw my most recent installment of The Sunday Post you will have read that I will now be juggling postgraduate study with my blogging, reading and reviewing! Whilst I really enjoyed my time away from the restrictions of TBR’s, I know that I will need to be a lot more organized from now on if I’m going to be able to balance my academic and personal reading lists so I’m bringing back my monthly TBR posts, at least for the time being.

Top 10 Tuesday | Genres I Hated at School

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly book tag that was run by The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a different bookish theme those deep-seated desires to list! Anyone is welcome to join in on their blog, in the comments or any other way. 

I haven’t done a TTT for a very long time and hadn’t been planning on doing one today. However, after reading Kate’s fantastic ‘best contemporaries set in school‘ TTT list (and her inquiring so nicely as to whether I was doing it this week) I thought I’d join in this week. The prompt for this week was ‘back to school/learning freebie’ and thought it’d be interesting to share with you all some of my most hated genres (and books!) that I actually really love now!

So, let’s get started…
