Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Quotes

Top ten tuesday banner

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s focus is on favourite quotes, and oh boy do I have so many quotes that I have loved over the years. I even have a notebook dedicated to writing my favourites in every so often, so choosing just ten to highlight is no easy feat. I would also like to point out that these are in no particular order!

February Wrap Up & March TBR

So I know I sort of disappeared towards the end of last year, a lot went down in my personal life, and I just had no time for blogging or bookstagram. My 2.5 year relationship ended, I had to move all my stuff back home, I had to deal with the breakup, I also got a proper adult full-time job, so that had a lot of adjustments of its own. So yeah things have been insanely hectic since October 2017. However, I think things are finally evening out and I now can start dedicating pockets of time to my book hobbies, which makes me really happy.

I can’t promise I will be completely consistent, but I am going to try to make sure at least one post a week goes up, but I won’t let myself feel bad if something comes up stopping that from happening.

So without further ado my first wrap up for 2018!

Wrap Up

The covers to all the books I read in February 2018

April Wrap Up & May TBR

In March I didn’t do very well, things got hectic and I only managed to finish one book. Fortunately,last month I did much better. I’m actually quite proud of my progress in April.

In April I read 5 books, three physical and two eBooks, I only didn’t read one of the books from my TBR but I am going to attempt to get through that one this month. I have currently read 18 out of 50 books, and am currently two books ahead of my reading schedule according to Goodreads.

March Wrap Up & April TBR

This month I did abysmally, so terribly in fact that I almost wasn’t going to do this post this month. However, since I made myself a promise to try to do this monthly here I go.

Life got busier than I expected in March, rushing about, renewing my work contract, doctor’s appointments, and more just left me with little time to dedicate to reading. Additionally I also started knitting again so some nights I would choose knitting to calm the mind before bed over reading.

The Book Blogger TMI | Book Tag

Photo I took for the Book Blogger TMI tag.

I found The Book Blogger TMI tag on Spines and Covers and thought it would be the perfect way to celebrate my one-year bookstagram anniversary. I can’t believe it has been a year, I definitely think my account has grown and changed over the year, and I would like to think that I have improved.

How old are you?

I’m twenty-two.

What book are you reading?

I’m currently reading Hollow City by Ransom Riggs, and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I’m going back and forth between the two.

What are you wearing?

A grey oversized shirt and leggings.

OTP?

I would have to say Cath and Levi from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.
