Top Ten Tuesday – Books On My Autumn/Fall 2022 To-Read List

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, this week it is Books On My Autumn/Fall 2022 To Read List. I have a general idea of what I would like to read each season, but sometimes things get in the way and I don’t quite manage it. I do take part in a lot of Blog Tours (I am trying to cut down, but it is difficult!) which have definitive dates which is quite helpful for this sort of list!

So here is my list, mainly taken up by Blog Tour books!

Top Ten Tuesday – Books I Loved So Much I Had to Get a Copy for My Personal Library

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, this week it is Books I Loved So Much I Had to Get a Copy for My Personal Library. I have never done this. Once I have read a story I don’t see the point in buying it again in another format. I don’t have a lot of space and so I will borrow library books and buy Kindle books in order to read the story, but save space. This being the case I will highlight library books and Kindle books that I would hypothetically get for my bookshelves.

Kindle Book

The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare – I loved this series and the covers are great!

Kindle Book

The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare – I loved the series and again the covers are great!

Borrowed A Court of Thorns and Roses, the rest of the series are Library Books

(Book Review) – A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J Maas – Loved the stories. I would have to get the USA cover design though as the UK one isn’t as pretty.

Library Book

(Book Review) – Dial A For Aunties by Jesse Sutanto – loved this and the second one (Book Review) – Four Aunties And A Wedding by Jesse Sutanto and recommend them a lot!

Library Book

(Book Review) – The House in the Cerulean Sea by T J Klune – I loved this story and recommend it to people. I also love the cover.

Library Book

(Book Review) – The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell – This was a great book for Halloween. I love the cover, but would have to keep it hidden so that I didn’t have to keep looking at it!!

Library Book

(Book Review) – The Little Cafe in Copenhagen by Julie Caplin – loved this story and the cover is cute!

Library Book

(Book Review) – You Had Me At Halloumi by Ginger Jones – loved the story and the cover is so summery!

Library Book

(Book Review) – Christmas at the Comfort Food Cafe by Debbie Johnson – Loved the story and the cover is very christmassy!

Library Book

(Book Review) – The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner – a great story and I love the bright, bold cover. One of my favourite covers!

What books would be on your list?

Happy TTT!

Top Ten Tuesday – Books With A School Theme

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, this week it is a school freebie/books with a school theme. I don’t read that many books based on school or that have characters who are teachers so I am going to have to do a bit of a mixed list based around the theme of school!

Factual Children’s Books:

Book Review – Vlad and the Roman Triumph by Kate and Sam Cunningham – Learning about the Roman Triumph

Book Review – A Binturong In My Bed by Chris Lois – Learning about the Binturong

Where The Character’s Learn:

Book Review– The Little Paris Patisserie by Julie Caplin – learn how to make Patisserie

Book Review – The Rabbit Factor by Antti Tuomainen – learn how to run an Adventure Park

Book Review – The Better Brother by Simon Gravatt – learn how to run a Funeral business

Top Ten Tuesday – Completed Series I Wish Had More Books

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, this week it is Completed Series I Wish Had More Books. This is a tough one as I haven’t read many series recently so I will have to look into my past reads. I will also need to add some books that I wish were series!

Series that I would like there to be more books in:

Book Review – Dial A For Aunties by Jesse Sutanto

Book Review – It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey

Book Review – Dead Soil by Alex Apostol

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J K Rowling

Books that I wish were a series:

Book Review – Finding Mr Perfectly Fine by Tasneem Abdur-Rashid

The ending was rather open ended so I would like to see what happens next.

Book Review – You Had Me At Halloumi by Ginger Jones

I loved the characters, but maybe a different set of characters and a different country.

Book Review – The Spanish Love Deception by Elena Armas

I loved the way that the story was written so maybe a similar sort of storyline with different characters.

Book Review – The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell

This ending was a cliffhanger so I would like to get closure plus a new story with more Silent Companions.

Book Review – The Wildest Hunt by Jo Zebedee

This story had so many elements that I enjoyed. I think that there could be more stories written that elaborated on them.

What books would be on your list?

Happy TTT!

Friday Musings – Inspired by Top 10 Tuesday – Inspirational Characters

Welcome to my Friday Musings Post! This is where every week I will scour the Blogosphere and find past meme questions and incorporate them into a current post (linking back to the blog who set the meme).

This week I have chosen:

Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

On 18 January 2011 the prompt was Inspirational Characters. Here are a few of mine:

Freya Butterly from You Had Me At Halloumi by Ginger Jones (click for my review)

She had a tough childhood and it was enjoyable to follow her on her culinary adventure.

Serena Mills from Welcome To Your Life by Bethany Rutter (click for my review)

I enjoyed watching the main character grow in confidence. She went against her family in order to fulfil her own happiness.

Audrey from The Kitchen Front by Jennifer Ryan (click for my review)

She worked really hard in order to keep a roof over her children’s heads and food on the table.

Etta from A Moment on the Lips by J Taylor (click for my review)

She focused on what she wanted and made new friends along the way.

Nanee from The Postmistress of Paris by Meg Waite Clayton (click for my review)

She risked her life to save others during the War.

What inspirational characters have you read about?
