Top 5 Tuesday


As we have already had a similar Top 5 Fantasy in which I listed my top 5 favourite YA & adult fantasy, I thought well, I’m going to talk about my Top 5 favourite Science Fiction reads and then, realised that we’d already covered that HERE and HERE. I’ve also done my Top 5 Authors, done …

There’s no contest between my top 5 favourite male characters of recent years, they’re all outstanding, for different reasons. Shanah, over at Bionic Book Worm, is giving us an easy task this week. I’m sure, some of my choices will already be familiar to anyone who stops by here regularly. Here they are, in reverse …

Because Inge over at The Belgian Reviewer suggested it, I’ve been thinking about book covers and their impact. And more specifically, the one’s that I, personally, love. Certainly, there have been many over the years but, for this Top 5 post, I’m sticking to covers from the last few years rather than the last few …

Yes, yes, I know, it was Tuesday yesterday and I posted my review instead, as Monday was a day off here, and I forgot to post the review on Monday because I thought it was Sunday, and now, here we are, and it’s Wednesday already and I’m thinking where did half the week go? DOH! …

The weather is dreary, and I’m in need of some inspiration, what better way to be inspired than by choosing my Top 5 Magical Creatures—although what qualifies as a magical creature is still, I believe, open for debate. Well, of course, everyone is going to go for Harry Potter, and who wouldn’t, the whole series …

If I said there was only one, how would that make me sound? Like I only read stand-alone novels? Or that I read really long series, so the next book in line isn’t really a sequel. Okay, so Shanah, over at the Bionic Book Worm has given me a doozy this week. So I’ve been …

This week’s topic for Top 5 Tuesday is, as Shanah over at Bionic Book Worm informs us, is romantic reads. Well, as someone who doesn’t read romance novels, though doesn’t mind a novel with romance in it—choosing five novels might prove interest. Not to be deterred, here goes: DEEP DOWN DEAD — by Brit-author, Steph …

Oh boy, am I excited about today’s Top 5 Tuesday from Shanah over at the Bionic Book Worm, because the focus is on books set in space—a topic squarely in my field of vision. And, as someone who read a lot of SFF over the years (check out the SFF books in my Library) I …

Shanah over at the Bionic Book Worm has come up with a topic for this week’s Top 5 Tuesday that, well, should be easy to fill. But, other than the usual ‘friendships’ which we all know—Frodo and Samwise, Harry, Hermione and Ron—I want to try come up with 5 different friendships to share with you—characters …

So this weeks’ Top 5 Tuesday is an interesting one. Shanah over at Bionic Book Worm wants us to talk about our top 5 books set in the country where we live. Which, in my case, is Canada. Which means, for me at least, Louise Penny. All her books are set in the fictional village …
