Top Ten Books By Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read #TopTenTuesday

Top Ten Books By Favorite Authors That I Still Haven't Read On Novels And Nonfiction

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s topic was Top Ten Books By Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read. I don’t participate in Top Ten Tuesday every week but I’m going to try to do so at least once a month.

I’m interpreting this week’s theme a bit loosely, because some of these authors aren’t technically full blown favorites of mine. I picked authors for which I had read at least one book and loved it – and then scoured their list of published titles to find my potential next great read.

It’s a pretty eclectic list and I even threw some nonfiction in there. It was fun to brainstorm which books to pick for this post and it definitely reminded me of a few titles I’ve been meaning to get to. Hopefully it’ll also provide good inspiration for your TBR!

Links I Loved This Week – 04/08/2018

Links I Loved From The Bookish World For The Week Ending 04/07/2018 On Novels And Nonfiction

Overall, thanks to my decluttering and simplifying, I had a really organized, productive and calm week. I worked out every morning except for Saturday and brought all my own food to work again this week – hopefully will be reaping the benefits on the scale by Monday. My blog posting is still a bit more all over the place than I would like but I’m working on that.

I also got through a good amount of reading and got caught up with my Goodreads Challenge (yes!). I finished two books on minimalism (I’m working towards a book list to be published soon) – The More of Less by Joshua Becker and The Year Of Less by Cait Flanders. I also finished the audiobooks for The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende and Murder On The Orient Express by Agatha Christie.

But enough about me! Without further ado, here are this week’s links…

Links I Loved This Week – 04/01/2018

Links I Loved For The Week Ending 04/01/2018 On Novels And Nonfiction

Another pretty bookish week behind me. I successfully posted twice (twice!) on my blog this week in addition to Links I Loved (pat on the back). I finished thriller The Woman In The Window by A.J. Finn – which was very good – and spent Friday in my beach tent in front of the Pacific reading Ready Player One. I followed that up by watching the movie on Friday evening, so keep your eyes peeled for my Book To Screen comparison post.

This week I want to keep up a more regular posting schedule (fingers crossed) and also start ordering books I want to have on hand to get signed during the LA Times Book Fest. I’m also hoping to finish reading The Cadaver King And The Country Dentist by Radley Balko and Tucker Carrington, The More Of Less by Joshua Becker and the audiobook of The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende. Next on my list will be Book Of The Month pick from January 2018 Red Clocks by Leni Zumas.

But enough about my reading agenda. Without further ado, here are this week’s links…

Links I Loved This Week – 03/25/2018

Links I Loved For The Week Ending 03/25/2018 On Novels And Nonfiction

These past two weeks have involved a lot of bookish events and happenings in my life, though not that much actual book blogging.

I bought my All Access Pass to the LA Times Book Festival that’s happening at the end of April and have already perused the full announced schedule to figure out which talks and signings I want to make sure to hit. I need to make a complete plan this week so I can buy any books I want to get signed in advance (and possibly also buy some kind of small rolling cart to bring with me so I don’t have to lug them all around the whole time in a bag) #bookwormproblems.

I also attended an author event last weekend featuring author Jade Chang discussing her debut novel The Wangs Vs. The World. It was a super interesting talk and I was able to get not one but two hardcover copies of the book signed, so I’ll be giving one away when I review the book and the event hopefully around the end of this week.

Without further ado, here are this week’s links…

Links I Loved This Week – 03/11/2018

Links I Loved This Week On Novels And Nonfiction

I’ve had an exceptionally productive weekend – don’t you just love the feeling of that? I’m all set up for this coming week and even stopped by Eataly this evening to pick up some real italian groceries for the week, including lots of my favorite – prosciutto cotto. I also have a great book event to look forward to on Friday with author Jade Chang of The Wangs Vs. The World, and hope to get an extra signed copy of her book to give away to one of my readers.

Since I skipped Links I Loved last week due to an impromptu Oscars get-together, you’ll find links for both this past week and the week before in today’s post. I’m hoping to pick up my posting frequency on my own blog asap, and this week I’ll be featuring a guest post from Megan at The Hungry Bookworm on Thursday (more details on that below).

Without further ado, here are this week’s links…

My Top Ten Favorite Classics (With Quotes) #TopTenTuesday

Top Ten Favorite Classics With Quotes On Novels And Nonfiction

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s topic was Top Ten Favorite Quotes. I needed a bit more direction than that because I have a hard time remembering specific quotes I loved in novels, so I decided to restrict the playing field to my favorite classics of all time.

Definitely not an easy feat but I decided to stick with one book from each of my Top 10 favorite classic authors, so they’d all be represented. If they’re on this list, you can assume I pretty much love every single one of their titles that I’ve read. They’re not in any specific order because it was just too hard as always to pick favorites, except for the fact that Middlemarch and The Idiot being at the top is not entirely coincidental.
