Top Ten Tuesday: Recent Spooky Reads

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.


Good morning! I want to say “Happy Tuesday”, but do we like Tuesdays more than Mondays or are they both equally days people don’t look forward to?

Anyhow, today’s TTT is a Halloween freebie. I know I’m not being super original here, but I’ve been flitting around Instagram this whole month and saw a number of recommended reads for this spooky season. I thought I would collate the ones that seemed interesting and/or popular to discuss with you all!

Top Ten Tuesday: Online Resources for Book Lovers

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

1. Bookstagram

I just started mine but the community has been absolutely fascinating and a totally different medium than what I’m used to in learning about exciting new books. I’m such a mood reader that it automatically adds 10+ books into my TBR in one go!

Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Book Settings

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.


Good morning fellow book lovers! I had a great long weekend here in Canada and am feeling a little bit more refreshed to face the new week. Been learning how to let go of some of the expectations to post often on the blog and keep up to date with my new bookstagram, and just be content with why I started all this in the first place, you know?

Today’s TTT is a great topic. I personally do gravitate towards certain books more based on where they are set, and I definitely buy those books more often because of it.

How many of these do you enjoy as well?

1. Boarding Schools

2. Magical Schools

3. High fantasy lands with proper world building

4. Urban fantasy cities

5. Victorian/Regency Era

6. Early 1900s city

7. School campuses with secret societies

8. Abroad (aka outside of North America)

9. World War II

Are any of these your favourites? Or are there some you really enjoy not on this list? Let’s discuss below!
