Top Ten Tuesday: First 10 Book Reviews

Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and has since been moved over to The Artsy Reader Girl!

Over the past five and a half years of Reading, Reading, Reading, I have read and reviewed a bunch of books! You can read all of my reviews here (however, my archive has not been updated with any of my newer posts, but I plan to update it soon though!). Therefore, I have a lot of reviews that are, well… not up to my usual standard! That being said, I am still proud of all of the content I have posted on here and am SOOOOO excited to walk down memory lane and re-read these reviews!

  1. Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
  2. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
  3. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
  4. Are You There God? It’s me, Margaret by Judy Blume
  5. Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle
  6. Everything Leads To You by Nina LaCour
  7. The Hunger Games by Suzzane Collins
  8. We Are Canada by Rikia Saddy
  9. Fairest by Marissa Meyer
  10. Minutes Before Sunset by Shannon A. Thompson

Feel free to check out those posts and embarrass me (HAHAHA)! You can read everyone else’s TTT posts by clicking here.

WWW Wednesday → April 3, 2019

Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!

WWW Wednesday was one of my favourite weekly memes to participate in “back in the day”, but I haven’t done one of them in literally four years! Since I am reading some exciting ARCs, but don’t have any to review until next week, I thought it would be fun to share them with you here!

This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived on Taking on a World of Words.

What did you recently finish reading?


The book I just recently finished was “When We Were Lost” by Kevin Wignall. To be honest, I am actually currently reading this but hope to be finished it by the time you see this post! Thanks to Hachette Book Group Canada for sending this one to me!

What are you currently reading?


The book I’m currently reading (a.k.a. will read once I finish “When We Were Lost”) is “Love & Other Curses” by Michael Thomas Ford. This one has a fantastic premise, but has not had the best reviews. I’m really excited to see what my overall thoughts on this one will be! Thanks to HCC Frenzy for sending me an ARC!

What do you think you’ll read next?


After I read “Love & Other Curses”, I will definitely be reading “You Must Not Miss” by Katrina Leno! I am SO excited to have quite a few YA thrillers on my TBR this month, but I am looking forward to reading this one the most out of all of them! Thanks to Hachette Book Group Canada for sending me an ARC!

I’d love to read your answers to these three questions! No blog? No problem! Write your responses as a comment down below, and we can all discuss together!

Top 5 Books I Didn’t Get To in 2018

Hi everybody and Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!

Sorry this blog post is coming out so late, I’ve had a really busy day and have just been able to sit down, relax, and finally write this post.

While there are still a few weeks left in 2018, there is no way I will be able to finish all of the books I wanted to read this year in these next few weeks. And even though I got to my most anticipated ones, there are still some that I really really wanted to read before the end of the year… but there is always next year!

Shanah from Bionic Book Worm hosts a weekly feature called “Top 5 Tuesday“, which I have been meaning to participate in for a while now. I am so happy that this post fit into my posting schedule and was such a great topic! You can read the remaining Top 5 Tuesday December 2018 topics here. You can read Shanah’s version of this post here!


The first book I wish I had read this year was “Five Feet Apart” by Rachael Lippincott. This book sounds super good and like a really lovely winter read. Even though I got an ARC from Simon & Schuster (a very special one, at that), I found it very difficult to read from the particular style of binding, as it cut off basically every first or last word of the sentence depending on which page you are reading from. I think I will purchase a copy of the finished book and review it when I get around to it. As always though, I am so happy to have received a special ARC!


The second book I wish I had read this year but didn’t get to it was “The Walls Around Us” by Nova Ren Suma, which I recently bought on Book Outlet. I have been in such a thriller/mystery mood lately and I thought I was going to devour this book… if I had ever started it! I actually changed the status of this book on my Goodreads page to “Currently Reading” from “TBR”, but I found a book that was more interesting to me at the time so I decided to revert it back to TBR. I still have not yet picked it up, but I plan on doing so sometime in the new year.


The third book I didn’t get to this year was “The Land of Stories: Worlds Collide” the sixth and final book in the Land of Stories series by Chris Colfer. If you are an “OG” reader of Reading, Reading, Reading, you have probably read about this series in an old blog post from 2013 or 2014. I was (and still am) in love with this series, and it is definitely still one of my favourite ones out there! While this book was probably my most anticipated book on 2018, I never had the chance to purchase a copy or read it. I will definitely do so next year!


The fourth book I didn’t read in 2018 was “Behind Closed Doors” by B.A. Paris, which is another book I recently purchased from the Black Friday sale on Book Outlet. My mom actually recently read this book and enjoyed it, so I was planning on reading it soon. Unfortunately, I have quite a few books that I plan on reading during the rest of December so I don’t think I’ll have anytime to get to it.


The final book/series I didn’t get around to this year that was high up on my TBR list was “Harry Potter” J.K. Rowling. My close friends are always shocked when I mention to them that I haven’t read this series, especially since I am such a book worm! I have a beautiful matching cover set (first cover design is shown in the picture above) of the entire series that I stare at on my shelves all the time. I really hope to read this series during 2019, and it is one of my reading goals for next year just to read/finish the series!!! (One of the biggest reasons why I want to finally read Harry Potter is so my father will stop antagonizing me about not reading this series EVERY SINGLE DAY, and I need to get around to it just so he will stop… HI DAD!!!!)

Those are the top 5 books I didn’t get to in 2018. Did you guys also publish this post today? Drop your link in the comments and I’ll make sure to check it out!

Third Sentence Thursday {11/15}

(Hi peeps! I know today is Friday… HAPPY FRIDAY!!! However, I really wanted to post this yesterday but I didn’t have time to edit and post it… so here it is today!)

Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!

My life has seemed to become consumed with school work lately, so sadly my reading time has been far and few between. I have been reading the book “1984” by George Orwell for my English Lit class, and I have been really liking it so far! My English class readings have  been very interesting in the past, so I am not surprised that I am actually enjoying a mandatory read.

Third Sentence Thursday used to be a very regular blog post that I would publish every Thursday, but I haven’t made one since March 2015! TST used to be hosted by That’s What She Read, but her blog has since been deactivated. If any of you know who currently hosts “Third Sentence Thursday”, please let me know in the comments and I will add their Blog URL/link to this post!

Take any book you are reading and flick to a random page. Share the third full sentence from that page with the blogosphere as a “taster” of the book! You can also share your thoughts about the sentence (does it affect the novel? did you like the language used? was it so short that it adds suspense?) It’s a fun, fast way to offer your readers a ‘snapshot’ of a particular book.

“Winston’s heart was thumping so hard that he doubted whether he would be able to sleep.” – “1984” by George Orwell, pg. 175

This is actually from the page I am on now! For my class, we split the book up into four different sections, and have a conference after we have read and finished each section. While I haven’t started this section yet, I assume this has to do with something related to The Party or Julia. Like I previously said, I am really enjoying this book so far! The beginning was a bit slow and hard to get into because I found it quite confusing. However, as I read on I started to understand the world a lot better and appreciate Orwell’s distinct writing style. The plot is very very interesting, and I can’t wait to see how the book pans out!

Swoon Worthy Saturday {08/15}

Hi everyone,

Saturday is a day for swooning. Swoon Worthy Saturday is a weekly meme where in we present a fictional boy who has swept us off our feet, given us butterflies, made our heart do acrobatics and driven us absolutely crazy! (Hosted by StayBookish)!

Ansel Elgort is a famous actor, that us as bookworms love, as a star in a YA movie! We loved him in The Fault in Our Stars and Divergent!

He just looks like someone who you’d want to sit down and chat with, I always enjoy those kinds of people!

Let me know who you are swooning this Saturday in the comments!

“We thanked heaven that Chairman Mao had started this cultural revolution, and that the Central Committee of the Communist Party had uncovered the mess in our schools.” -Red Scarf Girl by Ji-li Jiang

I’m actually reading this for school, and I’m currently liking it! Hopefully I will finish it soon and will get a review up for you guys soon! Although, to some people it is a very controversial book. Personally, I’m liking it and enjoying it!

Today’s pick for Swoon Worthy Saturday is Four from the Divergent Trilogy!

I picked him an honor of Insurgent coming out!

Here are a few cool pictures of him that I found:

February Flurries: Sunday Showcase {02/15}

Hey guys!

Today, I’m going to be doing a Sunday Showcase, which is a Sunday Meme where you share bookish things that happened throughout your week!

This week, I only had one “bookish” event through out the week!

I bought this book today at Indigo, while taking some pics for an upcoming blog post! Be on the lookout in the next few days for an “In My Bookstore”! It’s gonna be awesome! I’m so excited to start this book! Apparently, it’s like mix of The Fault In Our Stars and Eleanor and Park! I’ve read TFIOS, but not E&P, so maybe if I love this, I’ll get my hands on that! I’m reading Anna and The French Kiss for my first Week of Readathons 3 book! Next, I’ll probably read this but I wanted to finish Anna first! I’m gonna do a Week of Readathons Day 1 wrap up on here instead of Facebook this time because more of you read my stuff on here! See you later!

I finally bought “All The Bright Places” by Jennifer Niven!

Originally, I was not going to buy this book, but I decided to because the poster at Indigo was SO intriguing! I wish I took a picture of the post!

I actually did a BONUS post on my tumblr about the adventures of buying this book! Check it out here:!

I hope you guys go and check out my tumblr page for exclusive posts and bonus content that associates with my blog!

See you guys tomorrow!
Good Night Book Lions!
