5 Diverse Anthologies You Shouldn’t Miss in 2019

5 masterfully edited anthologies of 2019 that should be on your anticipated books list this year | Nandini @ Unputdownable Books

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 February 5th, 2019 is: Upcoming Releases I’m On the Fence About. I’m tweaking the topic a little to help you put these amazing books on your TBR.

Top Ten Tuesday: Cosy Winter Book Recommendations

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 December 4th, 2018 is: Cozy/Wintry Reads. Today I bring to you a list of five fantasy books that I think is perfect to read around the winter time. Winter reading is not complete without a cosy candle burning by the side, so I have included some suggestions for literary candles from small businesses that I think are a perfect match for the books mentioned.

5 Books to Read If You Loved The Lord of the Rings

Talking about your favourite book is hard because it’s difficult to articulate the attachment you have with what seems to non-readers like just words on the page. I can’t believe I managed to do it for four posts this month, the last one being this of course! I really hope you enjoyed this series and whether you’re as big a Tolkien nerd as me or not, you took away something valuable from this. While The Lord of the Rings will remain my eternal favourite series, I’ve been searching far and wide for books that evoke the same feeling or have similar themes to it. Also, I recognise that it may not be the best book for every kind of reader, even if you’ve loved the movies. Here is my attempt to recommend 5 books that fans like me would enjoy and also for those who may not have liked the books but want something similar. Please be considerate of the fact that reading is a very personal experience, so it’s quite possible to respectfully disagree with my choices.

#SHOSPH Blog Tour: Superhero Books on my TBR

I’m moving away from my usual Top Ten Tuesday post to bring you a special one today. It is still a listicle though, so don’t turn away just yet! Two weeks ago, I signed up for the blog tour of Second-hand Origin Stories by Lee Blauersouth and I have two stops on this tour! This blog tour is kindly hosted and organized by the lovely Shealea from That Bookshelf Bitch. I’ve already read and enjoyed the book, so if you want my live reactions as I read it, check out this Twitter thread.

SHOSPH Blog Tour - Feature Post

I haven’t actually read many books having superheroes, although I’m a huge fan of the movies (the MCU, to be precise). Even as a child, I had little love for comic books. I’ve always found it hard to start a comic book series. There are so many volumes to keep track of, most of which were published much before this millennium, and none of them are easily available in India – those are my (probably flimsy) reasons for not appreciating the source material. Second-hand Origin Stories introduced me to the world of actual full-length novels having superheroes in them. There are quite a few other books that have superhero themes as well that have come out recently and I’m dying to get my hands on them! Let’s take a look at the ones I’ve added to my TBR.

Top Ten Tuesday: Indian-Inspired Fantasies

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 March 27th, 2018 is: Books That Take Place In Another Country. Since pretty much every book I read takes place in a country other than India, I decided to change up the prompt and talk about the books that take place in a fictionalized version on my country. I haven’t loved all of the books on this list, so keep in mind that this isn’t a favourites list. Plus I haven’t read a lot of them, so it is limited to 5 today.
