Books Without Romance (T5W)

This week’s topic is a hard one. We’re supposed to come up with a list of five books that don’t have any romance in it, or at least the romance must be barely noticeable.

Being a sucker for love and relationships, it was kind of hard gathering five books that didn’t have any of that sweet, cute and adorable action, but I was able to find enough books for this list!

Favorite Graphic Novels and Comics (Top Ten Tuesday)

A genre I tend to read very little of is graphic novels/comics. I don’t know why, they have a lot of things that draw me to them but I end up archiving them on my ‘to-be-read’ shelves and rarely end up reading them.

However, the ones that I have read I’ve thoroughly enjoyed. Moreover, this year of 2017 has revealed to be the one in which I read more books in these two genres, in part thanks to NetGalley and some publishers for sending me digital review copies.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted as per usual by The Broke and The Bookish, is dedicated to graphic novels and comics and I’m taking this chance to share which books I’ve read in the past and loved.

My Childhood In Books (Top Ten Tuesday)

In today’s Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme created by the lovely girls over at The Broke and The Bookish, I want to share with you the books (and authors) that had the biggest impact in me as an eight to twelve year-old bookworm. You can see a specimen of the species Childus Bookwormus aged five in her natural habitat below, she had been interrupted while feeding on her daily dose of fiction.

I’d like to take this opportunity and own up to my privilege. I grew up in a family that had enough money and other means to support my love of books and was actively interested in cultivating this habit in me. I am thankful for it every single day.

I also want to thank the authors who wrote these books — even though they will never read this — for having created such lively characters and an alternative world where I could fall back into whenever I so desired. I couldn’t be the reader I am today if it hadn’t been for these works of fiction.
