Modern Mrs Darcy Challenge

One of my 2018 goals was completing the Modern Mrs Darcy challenge. I picked this challenge because it seemed to be fairly simple and had only a few categories. I read a lot but trying to read specific books is a lot more difficult for me.

I enjoyed this challenge but I think next time I’m going to look at monthly, rather than yearly challenges. All covers below link to Goodreads.

Did anyone else take part in this challenge?

Top Ten Books of 2018

I saw so many of these posts and videos going around that I knew I had to do one! I didn’t do all the year-end posts I wanted to last year so I was hoping to actually be a little more organised this year.

During my monthly wrap up posts, I pick a favourite book of the month. Sometimes this is really easy and other times, not so much. When it came to picking my top ten favourite books of the year, I looked at these top books of each month and ended up only taking half of them for this list.

Between Blogtober and Preptober, this was a busy month for me and I didn’t get as much reading done as I would have liked. I didn’t get half the stuff done as I would have liked but I put that down to poor planning.

And yes, this wrap up is over a week late but I’ve been concentrating on Nanowrimo (which I feel is going very well, it’s just other things falling by the wayside) but I’m hoping to get back on top of myself soon.

Top Ten Creepy Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme. It used to be hosted by The Broke and the Bookish but now it is being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Halloween/Creepy freebie. I did some Spooky Recommendations a couple of weeks ago so this week I focused on the creepiest books I’ve read. My ratings for these books vary so much, but I think they all have tense, creepy feel to them.
