Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
Happy Tuesday everyone!! I hope your week has gotten off to a good start! Today’s Top Ten topic is Bookish Discoveries I Made In 2019.
I devoured these and I hear her other series are as equally awesome, so I can’t wait to continue experiencing her greatness!
I have used other library apps in the past, but I discovered this one this year, and it’s by far my favorite! I have listened to so many audiobooks through this app this year. If you’re not using hoopla, what are you waiting for?
Tanya @ A Novel Glimpse
It’s very possible that I had commented on Deanna’s blog prior to 2019, but it was towards the beginning of 2019 that she really caught my attention. She was the first blogger that I had some great back and forth conversations on romance books we were both gushing over or vice versa. I picked up a lot of books this year because of her insistance that they were awesome. LOL! We don’t always feel the same about a book, but that’s perfectly fine, we still love to talk about them. And when we both agree *Bright Side* it’s even more awesome!!
I still need to finish this series, but I’ve been putting it off not wanting it to be over. It’s definitely up there with my all-time series faves!! I hope Garber has more for us soon!
I read The Girl in the Painting at the beginning of the year and have just been continuing with Max Monroe’s books ever since. I have not been disappointed by any of them.
Tanya @ Girl Plus Books
I’d guess that it was probably during the middle of 2019 that I came in contact with Tanya. She caught my attention gushing over one of JLA’s books. I think it was actually on one of my posts and she was commenting. I started following her and quickly saw that she is soooo me when it comes to reading tastes. I don’t think I’ve ever found another blogger whose reading tastes were so similar to mine and liked to gush on them the way I do. Tanya, I’m so glad you’re working out of that slump!! Oh, and she introduced me to Lora Richardson, too!!
No, I didn’t first hear about these this year, but it was the first year that I got to experience them first hand. And, honestly it’s been like Christmas each month opening the boxes!
I can’t say that I discovered Penny Reid in 2019 because I had read one of her books prior to 2019. It was good but nothing special. Well, I learned this year that that was just a fluke because I loved so many of her books this year! I’m so looking forward to continuing to catch up on all her books this year!!
I was very much aware of bullet journaling prior to 2019, but I always thought that I didn’t have time for it. Well, then I came across a particular page that caught my attention. I can’t remember what exactly it was, but I believe it was tracking reading stats and that well I could certainly get on board with that. And well, the rest is history. I wish someone would have gotten it through my thick head that it’s really a time saver in the long run. I am so much better organized and get so much more accomplished now! Plus, I love all the awesome ways to keep up with different reading and blogging stuff!
