#TopTenTuesday: 10 Ways to Beat a Reading Slump

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is ‘Books to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump’ but I decided to put my own twist on it and instead share with you ten ways to beat a reading slump. What exactly is a reading slump?

30 before 30: My Quarter-Life Bucket List

30 before 30: My Quarter-Life Bucket List

      Today I’m turning 29 and lately I’ve been thinking about what I’d like to achieve in the next year before the big 3-0.

My Top 7 Short Stories

My Top 7 Short Stories

I think I fell out of love with the short story during my uni years when I […]

My Top Ten OTPs

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week there is a new topic or theme to base your top ten list on. You can find more details about it and see the list of topics here. This week’s prompt is “Best Books I’ve Read In 2018”; however, I confess I have only read 10 books so far this year so a top ten would be pointless. Shame on me.     So, I’ve decided to do a Top Ten Tuesday throwback, […]
