Holiday BookTubeAThon

A readathon I discovered today, which starts today, for the last three days of 2016! It’s meant to be a quick challenge with four separate challenges.

  1. Read three books
  2. Read a book with your favourite colour on the cover
  3. Read a book that was a gift
  4. Read a book from a genre you discovered this year

Top Ten Best Books of 2016

The great thing about the end of the year is you get to make posts about ‘5 best….’ or ’10 worst…’ and then ramble on.

Bookmas Wrap Up

Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree

This is less Top Ten Tuesday, than Top Ten Christmas Eve but I saw the post after Tuesday passed and thought it would be perfect for a before Christmas post. I haven’t asked for any paperback or hardback books for Christmas as I will be going travelling soon afterwards, so I’ll be stocking up on ebooks instead. Still, if I was going to get some physical books, these are the ones I would want. I may be repeating myself from my earlier post about books I wish I had read in 2016 but oh well.
