Top Ten Tuesday: Winter Fantasy TBR


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature over at That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s theme is wintry reads. To me, it’s my number one time to want to get cozy with a fantasy novel, a soft blanket, hot chocolate spiked with Bailey’s, and some candles. All while the snow falls outside. Does that not sound like the best way to spend an evening?

So, in order of relsease date, here’s my winter fantasy TBR (lol let’s pretend that my over ambitious self is actually going to read all of these over the course of the winter for the sake of this post).

Top Ten Tuesday: Backlist Books I Want to Read


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature over at That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is backlist books that I want to read. It’s a pretty easy topic because there are so many books out there that sound perfect and that I really want to read. But at the same it’s hard because how on earth am I only supposed to choose ten? My Goodreads TBR is beyond full and those are when I remember to put them as ‘want to read.’ Imagine how big it would be if I actually put everything I want to read on my TBR? Good lord.

So here’s the list I came up with, sorted by release date. If there’s any you’ve read that you think I should be reading asap, let me know down in the comments below!

6547258 2495567 7664334

1. The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson | 2. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss | 3. Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

15753977 21843117 20510868

4. Legend by Marie Lu | 5. Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey | 6. Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

18812405 27189194 23299512 26114463

7. The Good Girl by Mary Kubica | 8. One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid | 9. The Savage Song by Victoria Schwab | 10. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I’d Love to Meet


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature over at That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is authors I’d love to meet. Living in Montreal, it’s incredibly rare that authors make their way over here. That’s most likely because we are a billingual city. Instead of having an entire city devoted to one big book store like Barnes & Noble, half of us flood Indigo (English) and the other half flood Renaud Bray (French). Because of this, the sales probably don’t speak enough to publishers to send their authors here.

In the next few years I have been thinking of taking trips to Toronto. It’s relatively cheap to bus there and the chance to meet my favourite authors won’t just be an impossible dream because lord knows they aren’t coming here. Fingers crossed!

The list is in random order except for the first two. I would probably die if I meant V.E. Schwab, let’s be real. Her books are everything to me. And R.S. Grey is the absolute queen of rom-coms. Her books have saved me from so many reading slumps and cheered me up when I’ve been down.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books By My Favourite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature over at That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is books by my favourite authors that I haven’t read yet. Sad to say there’s quite a few by my faves that I haven’t gotten to. Cue the shouts of SHAME, SHAME, SHAME. Most of these aren’t new releases so I really have no excuse. But of course, these are all books I have every intention of reading at some point.

I decided to do two books per author for this list. Hope you enjoy and link me to your TTT posts below! I’d love to take a look at them.
