    Top Ten Tuesday: Books I meant to read in 2020, but didn’t get to

    Happy Tuesday once again, and welcome to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl (link up here). This week we’re talking about the books we totally meant to read in 2020, but just…didn’t. And that’s okay–2020 was a hell of a year!

    But now that we’ve rolled over into 2021 (new year, new me), I’m trying to get back in the habit of reading at least one book each week. And there are quite a few titles left over from my 2020 TBR list that I’d like to tackle, in no particular order.

    Top Ten Tuesday: bookish resolutions for 2021

    It seems fitting that my first time linking up for Top Ten Tuesday this year involves bookish resolutions for 2021! I went through a hardcore reading slump for a while and I’ve only recently gotten back into reading on a regular basis. So, I actually do have several bookish resolutions to share with you guys this week!

    Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly link-up hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. If you linked up please leave me a comment so I can check out your resolutions!

    Top Ten Tuesday: non-bookish hobbies!

    Top Ten Tuesday: non-bookish hobbiesThis week’s TTT prompt is a little different…it’s all about our non-bookish hobbies! As much as I love reading I actually have lots of different interests and sometimes (okay, most of the time) I struggle to balance them all!

    In no particular order, here are ten things I love to do when I’m not buried in a book.

    • Hiking
    • Travel
    • Knitting
    • Gardening
    • Cooking
    • Yoga
    • Writing
    • Photography
    • Painting
    • Music

    What are some non-bookish hobbies that you have? Let me know in the comments and leave me your URL if you linked up this week! You can also browse my past TTT posts here.

    Top Ten Tuesday: books on my fall 2020 TBR

    Top Ten Tuesday: my fall TBRIt seems like it’s been forever since I’ve linked up for Top Ten Tuesday…but what better way to jump back in than my fall 2020 TBR list? I think I’m finally going to have more time to read this season and I have so many good books sitting on my shelf just waiting to be devoured. In no particular order, here’s what I can’t wait to read in the next few months.

    Top Ten Tuesday: wintry reads

    This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt (from That Artsy Reader Girl) is all about wintry/cozy reads…so here are ten of my wintry reads for your perusal. All take place largely in winter or in cold climates (or involve a theme of winter or Christmas in some way). FYI: these are best enjoyed with a mug of hot cocoa, a fluffy blanket, and a pet to cuddle, if possible!
