5 Books to Read on World Environment Day

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. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for June 4th, 2019 is: Books From My Favorite Genre. For this prompt, I decided to go with SFF books that discuss climate change or dystopian futures as June 5th is World Enviornment Day. Being eco-friendly and combating climate change is something I feel deeply about, so I hope these books inspire some positive changes in your life as well.

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.

Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for May 28th, 2019 is: Favourite Books Released In the Last Ten Years. It’s very difficult for me to narrow down my favourites to just one per year, so I decided to instead share my TBR of books that have been shortlisted for the Nebula awards from 2009-2018.

Reading 101: How to Fit Reading Into Your Daily Schedule

Off Tangent Thoughts (OTT) is a bi-monthly meme that has a basic list-based format wherein bloggers express their points in the form of a short or long list with the points under the list being merely a couple lines or even complete paragraphs. Prompts will be up on every 1st and 3rd Saturday based on which everyone can write their own posts. For prompts that will be released on the 1st Saturday, bloggers can write and publish their posts over the next two weeks, that is, until the 3rd Saturday from when posting for a fresh prompt will begin and continue up until the 1st Saturday of the next month and so on. On the rare occasions when we have a 5th Saturday, there will be an open prompt where everyone can generate a topic of their own or catch up on previous OTT prompts they may have missed. Everyone is encouraged to interpret the prompt however they like and be innovative with their posts. The topic for May 18th, 2019 is: Thoughts You Have When Someone Interrupts Your Reading.

I have been a reader since I was a smol child, so I have a lot of experience in dealing with situations where my reading gets interrupted. After becoming an adult with a job and responsibilities, every minute of reading time that I can get out of my schedule is precious to me and I guard it like a mother dragon guards her eggs. Today, I want to make a quick list of what goes on in my mind when my reading gets interrupted and will then move on to give some practical tips on how to make time for reading despite having a packed schedule.

Top 5 Books That Are Worth Reading Again

I was a huge re-reader until a couple of years ago when I started my book blog. The pressure of keeping up with review copies and the hyped books has kept me away from picking up my old favourites again. In the recent past, old series are being renewed again or sequels are coming out years later which have necessitated re-reads from publishers themselves. The book community has also embraced re-reading as a way of defeating the dreaded reading slump or as pick-me-ups on bad days. That is why today I feel comfortable sharing a list of books from my past which I want to read once more.

Happy Star Wars Day and May, fellow nerds! It’s finally become slightly cooler thanks to a few timely storms and things are looking hopeful now that spring is everywhere. April was an amazing month in terms of reading because of the OWLs readathon. I also read some cool blog posts, successfully evaded Endgame and Game of Thrones spoilers and made new bookish friends. Some of my most anticipated books came out in April, which I had the pleasure of reading early copies of. Read on to find out which ones and what I’m looking forward to in May!
