Top Ten Tuesday: The Winter TBR (I Still Haven't Finished My Summer TBR)

Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR


I don’t do very well with reading lists. I just get resentful when I have to read something by a certain time (oh school, sigh) and drag my feet even if I am going to end up loving the book anyway. 578 more words

Top Ten Tuesday

Almost every person I’ve encountered in the past three weeks is probably aware that I’ve been reading The Count of Monte Cristo. At number 44 on the BBC Big Reads, it’s one of the longest I’ve read to date – though having last night discovered that Dumas was paid by the word, one can certainly see why he’d pen such a lengthy novel – and on top of talking about it a lot, it’s had quite a big impact on my life. 260 more words
