Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish discoveries I made in 2019

Hello! I kind of took an unexpected mini hiatus, but now I’m back. Although I didn’t mean to or want to take a short break from blogging, it was good because I’ve been overwhelmed with school, and I haven’t been feeling well.

Hiatus: A pause, break, gap, lacuna, interval, intermission, interlude, interruption, suspension, lull, respite, time out, time off, recess

Ahhh, the thesaurus. Just read that out loud to yourself. It’s so satisfying!

So, I’m back to blogging, and I’ll hopefully be able to blog consistently for now. Anyways, even though it isn’t Tuesday, and although Tuesday was a fairly long time ago, I’m going to make a list of some of my many bookish discoveries in 2019. This is an especially important post for me to do, and shouldn’t be too hard, considering that at the beginning of the year I actually had no idea what a book blog was, or that such wonderful things existed, so before I make this introduction it’s own post, here are my 2019 bookish discoveries.

And oh yeah; Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl, where each week there is a prompt and you pick your top ten (or five or twenty) and yeah!

Discoveries:

1 Book blogs

Let’s just start off with a kind of enormous one. The entire world of book blogging is very new to me! I started this blog with never actually having read another book blog. I know that seems kind of crazy, and it seems crazy to me! I mean, most of the things I write on this blog are tags and memes! Moving on…

2 Reading Nooks

I’ve always just read here and there and whenever and wherever I could. I still do; I read a lot, but I created a little reading nook in my room with a comfy chair, immediate access to my bookshelf, and lots of light. It really makes reading more enjoyable, and now I’ll set aside chunks of time to just read.

3 Blogging in general

Similar enough but also slightly different to the 1st one, blogging on a whole is something that is new to me. There are a lot of blogs. A lot of people blog. More specifically, a lot of teenagers blog. That was something that I was very surprised about!

Books:

6It Ain’t So Awful Falafel, by Firoozeh Dumas.

I discovered this book in early 2019, and I’ve reread it so many times since! It is an amazing book, and I love practically everything about it!

7 The Wolf Wilder, by Katherine Rundell

I read this book I’m pretty sure on New Years Eve Eve, but this was definitely on of the best books I read in 2019! I actually had read another book by this author in like third grade, but then I got this for my birthday, and I love it so much!

Posts:

8 Printed Books vs, ebooks: game on!

This post, found on the blog Drizzle and Hurricane Books is a really great comparison of two formats of books!

9 How in the World I Make My Graphics

This post, by Kat @ Novels and Waffles is so amazing and extremely helpful. It is basically a tutorial of how the waffle queen herself makes her graphics. If you haven’t seen her blog, you should definitely go check it out.

Well, that’s all for today! I hope you enjoyed reading about some of my 2019 bookish discoveries, and I’ll try to blog more and be back soon!
