Top Ten Tuesday is a book tag where we talk about my top 10 favorite books or authors that fit the category of the week. created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010. That Artsy Reader Girl has been hosting since January 2018. Head over to her page to find categories for future weeks and participate!

This is the first Top 10 Tuesday I’ve done since returning to blogging, and I’m so excited because they’re some of my favorite tags to read! Make sure you let me know if you enjoy this type of content because it’s fun for me to make and I’d love to participate more frequently if you all would enjoy that.

This particular top ten tuesday is going to be a bit more of a Top 6 Tuesday, because I haven’t gotten thattt many books recently. My personal qualifications for making this list were that I had to have gotten the book since moving to my new apartment, and they had to genuinely be mine. Aka, it doesn’t count if I stole them from my mom and just haven’t given them back yet. I still think 6 is pretty impressive, because I’m not a huge book buyer, so most of these books were free to some extent. I’ll explain more as I reveal each book.

Queens of Geek

I got this book for Christmas and I’m so excited to read it!! I know that it’s been out forever, and I’ve been saying that I’ll read it for just as long. Everyone else in the entire world has already read it and talked about their opinions, but it’s finally my turn so get ready for a read and review coming out at some point in 2022.

Daisy Jones and the Six

This is the other book for Christmas and I’ve already flown through it. I fell in love with Taylor Jenkins Reid when I read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, and now she’s earned her place as one of my favorite authors ever with this book. The character development and everything else about it is just phenomenal. I truly cannot give enough praise to this book- the review will be out later this year!

The Ex Girlfriend of My Ex Girlfriend is My Ex Girlfriend

I read this book already, and the review should be coming out on Saturday, so stay tuned! This is basically just a Q&A / advice column turned into book form, but I had to own it because it’s the type of thing that’s so much better to read it if you can hold it in your hands, as opposed to just reading it on ebook or something. It’s also the type of book you may want to reread at some point in the future, so buying it felt like my only option.

The Bigger the Better the Brighter the Sweater

I have not read this one yet, but I’m looking forward to it. It’s a collection of short stories about being a woman, all written by women, and I think it’s supposed to be fairly funny. I found this book for $2 used on Amazon and figured why not buy it. I had enough credit card points that it was literally free! I’ll for sure write some type of review once I read it to let you guys know what I think.

Tumblr Porn

A book I’ve both read and reviewed? Unheard of! I purchased this book and read it the day it came in, because it’s only about 100 pages long and a fairly easy read. I have been thinking about starting a secret project (that I don’t want to share too many details of in case I end up doing it), and I bought this book for research purposes. This is just the first book in a series called “Remember the Internet” and I’m definitely going to keep an eye out for when the next one comes out.

The Happiness Project

I cannot explain how I felt about this book because there are too many mixed emotions. I found this book in one of those community library boxes that they scatter around the city, and I took it home. I almost wish I didn’t. The book was painful for me to read, it was entirely hetero-centric, and I felt like the author’s idea of being happy involved compromising all of her true wants and needs to make everyone around her happier. The process by which she went about making these changes was good though, and so I found that to be the more helpful part of the book.

What books have you added to your collection recently? Have you read any of the books that I own?
