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.
First Top Ten Tuesday of the decade! We’re still looking back to 2019 but only to see how it can help us in this new year..

As I said on my 2020 Bookish Resolutions, this year I’m going to try and tackle by TBR
To do this I decided to participate, once again, on Novel Knight’s Beat the Backlist Challenge!
Basically, the idea is to read books that were published in previous years and log them to your BtB list so you can earn point, cross off a bingo squar or whatever tracking method you prefer

At least the first half of 2020 because if I do the whole year then this would get far too long.
What’s the best part of a new year?
The new books of course!
2020 has some really amazing titles coming out on just the first half of it so let’s get to my Top 10 (because if I put all of them then it’ll get too long lbh)

You are made of dreams and this world is not for you
Length: 448 pages
Rating: 3.5/5 ★★★☆☆
From the #1 New York Times Bestselling author of The Raven Cycle, the mesmerizing story of those who can bring parts of their dreams into reality . . . and those who will stop at nothing to destroy them.
Ronan Lynch is a dreamer. He can pull both curiosities and catastrophes out of his dreams and into his compromised reality. Jordan Hennessy is a thief. The closer she comes to the dream object she is after, the more inextricably she becomes tied to it. Carmen Farooq-Lane is a hunter. Her brother was a dreamer … and a killer. She has seen what dreaming can do to a person. And she has seen the damage that dreamers can do. But that is nothing compared to the destruction that is about to be unleashed…

And that’s it for 2019… this year has been wild, personally. I’ve done a lot of shit and read few books but I loved almost every second of it. Now it’s time for a new era but before that, let’s close up on the last year of the 2010’s!
Continue reading “2019 Wrap Up”
Sometimes people are shitty but instead of talking about them I thought it’d be way better for everyone to talk about the people making the literary world a better, more inclusive, place.
I compiled a list of books I’ve read, or I’m going to read, with trans main characters writen by trans authors!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.
Listen, it doesn’t matter how far away these books are because I already love them and everyone else should be looking out for them too
I found this book on twitter a while ago but didn’t make a WoW because it was so far away BUT NOW IT’S LESS THAN A MONTH. It looks absolutely amazing and the cover is already one of my 2020 favorites. Next year is gonna be so good you all
ALSO I just got an ARC for this one and I’m in love
A lush tapestry of magic, romance, and revolución, drawing inspiration from Bolivian politics and history.
Ximena is the decoy Condesa, a stand-in for the last remaining Illustrian royal. Her people lost everything when the usurper, Atoc, used an ancient relic to summon ghosts and drive the Illustrians from La Ciudad. Now Ximena’s motivated by her insatiable thirst for revenge, and her rare ability to spin thread from moonlight.
When Atoc demands the real Condesa’s hand in marriage, it’s Ximena’s duty to go in her stead. She relishes the chance, as Illustrian spies have reported that Atoc’s no longer carrying his deadly relic. If Ximena can find it, she can return the true aristócrata to their rightful place.
She hunts for the relic, using her weaving ability to hide messages in tapestries for the resistance. But when a masked vigilante, a warm-hearted princess, and a thoughtful healer challenge Ximena, her mission becomes more complicated. There could be a way to overthrow the usurper without starting another war, but only if Ximena turns her back on revenge—and her Condesa.

YES! There’s actually audiobooks you can listen to if you have a Spotify account.
Thanks to the SpotifyWarpped I found out that people don’t know about these, so today I’m sharing the books you can listen to fully on Spotify
This is obviously NOT sponsored
I wish but rather an honest attempt to get audiobooks to more people. They are such a nice way of reading, especially if you can’t stare at a page for whatever reason.
Spotify is also a cheaper alternative to buying each individual book

We are already in December! (I feel like I do this every single month… the passage of time baffles me tbh)
There’s less than a month left of 2019 so I decided to start a series with the best of the 2019 releases
We are starting with COVERS because I’m an aesthetic bitch and I love a good cover…
Do I have any kind of system or ranking? No. I’m like a crow who hoards shiny things, they are all important
