Friday Book Share – The Book Thief

This week’s Friday Book Share (created by Shelley Wilson – LINK HERE) I’m sharing The Book Thief by Markus Zusak!

The purpose is to share books you’ve enjoyed by following the FRIDAY acronym:

First line of the book

Recruit fans by adding the blurb

Introduce the main character using only three words

Delightful design (add the cover of the book)

Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)

Your favourite line/scene

Authors I Want to Read More From

This week’s Top 5 Wednesday (link to the Goodreads group here) is authors that you’ve only read one or a few books from, and you NEED to read more!

IT1. Stephen King

I’ve only read Pet Sematary and I really liked it! I didn’t think a horror book about a cat coming back to life would be good but the way he described it I was creeped out at this book! I LOVE horror (movies/books/shows) and I can’t wait to read more of King’s books. The next one I want to read is IT but it’s sooooo long (1300 pages or something) so I’m slightly intimidated to start it.Read More »

LGBTQ+ Reads I Want to Read

This week’s Top 5 Wednesday (link to the Goodreads group here) is: talk about your favorite books that feature LGBTQ+ characters or are by LGBTQ+ authors!

I am ashamed to say that I haven’t read too many LGBTQ+ books so I decided to do this week’s Top 5 Wednesday about 5 LGBTQ+ books I want to read (and soon!).

*Also again, I completely forgot about this last Wednesday when it was supposed to be done, so I’m posting this today, and this week’s T5W will be tomorrow*

5 Things On Sunday

5 Things on Sunday is a meme created by Reads and Treats (LINK HERE) where each week there is a new topic and you write a list of 5 things relating to that topic. The topics are not necessarily about books (very few are) so you can post about non-bookish things for a little change!

This week’s topic is Spring Favourites – although because it’s autumn here in Australia, I’m doing Autumn Favourites.Read More »
