Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Really Liked but Can’t Remember Anything/Much About

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Books I Really Liked but Can’t Remember Anything/Much About. 

Honestly, this could be almost any book for me! I hate saying that, but I read so dang much. Don’t get me wrong, I remember pieces of these books, but there are a lot of blank spots. Here are the books that come to mind…


1. The Thirteenth Tale
by Diane Setterfield

2. Salem Falls
by Jodi Picoult

3. Midnight Bayou
by Nora Roberts

4. A Wrinkle in Time
by Madeleine L’Engle

5. Amber Beach
by Elizabeth Lowell

6. Lost & Found
by Brooke Davis

7. Magic Hour
by Kristin Hannah

8. Simply Irresistible
by Jill Shalvis

9. Until There Was You
by Kristan Higgins

10. Say Goodnight, Gracie
by Julie Reece Deaver


Have you read these? Do you remember them?

Top Ten Tuesday: My Resolutions/Goals for 2018

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Bookish Resolutions/Goals. So here we go!


1. Read less.

Read less is probably a shocking goal on a list like this, but I honestly need to do it. I read way too much last year. Reading is amazing for all sorts of reading, but I think I need to spend a little less time reading and more time living.

2. Request less ARCs.

I need to get pickier. In the past few years, I’ve gone a little NetGalley crazy. We’re all guilty of it at some point. I usually like the books I request from there, but they started taking over my reading. I need to get back to reading some of the books I already own. I’ll still be requesting ARCs, but only for tours I really want to do

3. Read more variety.

If you read my blog, then you know I mainly focus on romance. I need to slip in some other genres more often. Branch out and all.

4. Focus on reading and not reviewing.

The pressure to have a review for every book and every day is overwhelming. When I started blogging, I was going to do 2 to 3 reviews a week. This snowballed and I ended up doing a review almost 5 days a week. That’s insane. I felt like I was flying through books and not giving my best to my reviews. I already started this fall, but I’m sticking with around 3 reviews a week.

5. Review content.

I need to up my game on my review content. I feel like a lot of my reviews are starting to sound similar.

6. Blog commenting.

I follow so many blogs now that commenting has become harder. I want to focus on reading other bloggers reviews and really commenting on the content of them. It may mean I comment less in general, but I want it to count.

7. Participating in memes.

I’ve really shied away from book tags in the past year. I am not sure if I’ve just done most of them, or I haven’t wanted to take the time to explore more of them. I’ve mostly just been focusing on the Top Ten Tuesday and WWW Wednesday memes. I think I’ll keep doing that this year, but not put the pressure on myself to have a post for each Tuesday or Wednesday if I’m too busy with life.

8. Read more with my daughter.

My daughter and I used to read together nightly. Now that she’s a big 4th grader, she can read on her own. We haven’t been spending that quality time with me reading out loud to her. I want to get that special time back, so this month I started reading out loud to her again before bed when it’s possible. We started with A Wrinkle in Time. I loved that book as a kid and want to see the movie.

9. Be more active on Goodreads.

I used to spend a lot of time in a particular Goodreads group. I miss participating in their posts and buddy reads. I’m hoping resolutions 2, 3 and 4 help with this one.

10. Book + Main Bites.

I signed up for this site/app when it began. I still don’t get it. I rarely go on it, and I feel like I should be checking it out more to support authors. I need to figure it out this year!


Do any of these goals sound familiar to you? Are you aiming to do the same? What are your goals?
