Favorite Book Quotes I’ve Read this Year

I love quotes!  A good quote can really speak to you and stick with you through life.    It’s so hard for me to pick favorites, though.  So, to give myself less stress, I’ve decided to only include quotes from books I’ve read this year!

So, here we go:

Hello! It is day two of me hosting Bookending Spring 2019!  Lately, the weather has been so beautiful and it has really been putting me in that springtime mood.  So, for today’s post, I’m sharing with you all some of my favorite books that remind me of spring!

Some of these books remind of spring because of the content, others just because of their pretty covers.  Either way, just thinking about these books makes me think of spring!

Top Ten Books on My Winter TBR

It’s Top Ten Tuesday again!  It’s a weekly bookish list hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s topic is:

Winter TBR

1

The hype for Dumplin’ is out of control now that the Netflix movie is here!  I’ve heard nothing but good things about both the book and the movie, and I am really looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of this one.

2

The Night Circus is one of those books I’ve been meaning to read for ages but just keep putting it off for one reason or another.  Well, I’ve really been in the mood to read something mysterious and atmospheric, and from what I’ve heard, this sounds like the perfect book to fill that!

3

If there’s one book I’m hoping I get for Christmas, A Map of Days is it! I absolutely adore the Miss Peregrine series, and I’ve been desperately waiting to read this one.  If I get this one for Christmas (fingers and toes crossed), it may even be my very first read of 2019!

4

I meant to read Rebecca earlier this year.  However, I checked it out from the library (along with a rather hefty stack of books) and I ended up not getting to it before it was due back.  After Christmas, I’m planning on checking this one out again and giving it another try!

5

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is another book that I’ve heard so many wonderful things about!  I’m very excited to read this book and watch the movie this winter.

6

Okay, so everyone loves Outlander. I’ve always been intimidated by this book because of its size, but I really think I should give it a go!

7

Greenwillow was another book I meant to read earlier this year.  It was in the same library stack as Rebecca, and, unfortunately, I didn’t get to this one either.  Here’s hoping I finally can read it!

8

This book has been on my radar for quite some time, but I just never had the chance to read it.  Well, my package from TBTBSanta came and The Sun is Also a Star was one of the books she gifted me! I’m so excited to read it now!

9

Parallel is another book my wonderful TBTBSanta gave me.  Honestly, I plan on reading all the books she gave me this winter, but being that I have an actual post sharing all that I got, I decided to only list two!

10

Hiddensee sounds like such a perfect, wintery read. It’s a retelling of The Nutcracker, and while I’ve never read the book, I’ve seen the ballet (and the Barbie movie 😂), so I’m super excited to see how this one is!


There you have it! Those are just a few of the books I am looking forward to reading this winter!  Be sure to share with me some of the books on your winter TBR, because I would love to know!

Thanks for reading!

It’s Top Ten Tuesday again!  It’s a weekly bookish list hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s topic is:

TOP TEN LONGEST BOOKS I’VE EVER READ

This week’s title is pretty self-explanatory.  Today I’m sharing with you all ten of the longest books I’ve ever read!  I’ve scoured Goodreads, so I’m pretty sure I’m not missing anything.  I’ve included the page count at the top, too!  Also, I’m just going to be upfront and admit that I’m still not finished with The Count of Monte Cristo yet, but I’m working on it, and it will be one of the biggest books I’ve ever read once I finally finish it, so I decided to add it anyway! I have fully read everything else, though! 🎉

Alright, let’s get started:

Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR!

Top Ten Tuesday new

It’s Top Ten Tuesday again!  It’s a weekly bookish list hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s topic is:

TOP TEN Books on My Fall TBR

Hello everyone! I apologize for being so quite on my blog this past week!  September is always a busy month for me, and so my blogging and reading has slipped a bit these past few weeks.  That being said, things are starting to be more manageable again, and my blogging should become more frequent again soon! 🎉

Alright, today I’m sharing with you ten of the books I hope to read this fall!  My TBR is endless, so it was actually quite hard to narrow it down to ten, because I just want to read ALL the books.

So, without further ado, here’s my ten:

1

I’ve heard so many amazing things about The Miniaturist, and now with the new mini-series on PBS, I’m so excited to get to this book soon!

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

2

From what everyone tells me about this one, Greenwillow is such a delight to read!  I checked this book out from the library a while back, and I’ve just kept renewing it.  So, I really want to get to this one soon before I acquire a late fee! 🙈

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

3

Rebecca is another book I checked out from the library, so I really need to read this one ASAP!  I’ve heard it’s such an incredible, gothic novel, and with it coming into fall, I think this one will make such a perfect read.

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

4

Okay, so if you celebrate Halloween, you know all about Hocus Pocus!  It’s such a classic Halloween movie.  So, when I found out about this book, I was super excited. This book is going to make such a great, Halloween read! 🎃

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

5

I keep meaning to read A Discovery of Witches, but then I always get distracted by other books and put it off.  I’m really hoping to read it this fall, though.  I think it’ll make another great, Halloween-y read.  Plus, I saw the trailer for the TV show which really made me want to read this book even more!

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

6

Sunrise Cabin looks like such a fun and romantic story.  Plus, it looks like it’s going to have a great, autumnal vibe, which is perfect for a fall TBR!

Check it out on Goodreads!

7

The Witch of Willow Hall sounds like such an intriguing and mysterious novel.  I’m actually going to be participating in a blog tour for this book, later in October, so I am so pumped to read this one!

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

8

I love books about ballet, and Tiny Pretty Things has been on my TBR since it came out.  So, when I found a copy at my library’s book sale for $0.25, I just had to get it! I’m so excited to read this book very soon!

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

9

I just have to laugh/cry to myself a little that The Sweet Far Thing is still on my TBR.  It’s been on my TBR for SO long now, it’s almost embarrassing.  Will I finally read it?!

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

10

I’ve been meaning to read One of Us is Lying since it was first released.  I have a copy and everything, but for some reason, I just haven’t picked it up yet.  So, I’m really hoping to actually get to this one soon!

Check it out on Goodreads!

 


That wraps up this week’s Top Ten Tuesday!  Here’s hoping I actually get to all of these books this fall.  Knowing me, I won’t, but I’m going to try! 😆

What books are on your fall TBR?

Thanks for reading!
