Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish People You Should Follow on Twitter

Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday as hosted by the lovely people of The Broke & the Bookish. Today’s topic is kind of like the shout out tags I’ve done before [part one & two], so I’m pretty pumped about this one! I love being able to shout out people who I think deserve it, and so here I am with some of the people I think that you should definitely check out on Twitter.

Twitter is one of those social media sites that are great because you can connect easily with so many people and discuss things (like books) in as few as 140 characters. Pretty sweet, right? Well, there are a lot of bloggers/booktubers/bookstagrammers/etc who use Twitter and link to their reviews, and even then they still talk about books. Here are the ones you should check out:

  1. Annika @ HidingBooks – She’s a lovely person from the UK who talks about books and how much she wants to finish series even when she doesn’t own them. She even hosted a sporadic readathon over Easter weekend because, hey, why not?
  2. Cait @ PaperFury – If you aren’t following her then what are you doing with your life? She’s SUPER funny and witty, always posting about booknerd problems. Plus, she gives out cake freely.
  3. Nori @ ReadWriteLove28 – She’s a funny gal who hosts the Twitter chat #RQWN which stands for “Random Questions with Nori” which are really fun and weird and different.
  4. Ezrah @ iheartromanceya – She’s all over the book community, I swear. She’s very friendly and easy to talk to, and I think she’s just a great person!
  5. Jayvee @ jayvwrites27 – She’s such a fangirl and I just love her enthusiasm for many, many things. Whenever she answers questions she answers them IN CAPS, and they often make me laugh.
  6. Cee @ thenovelhermit – If you want comic book recommendations, she’s your girl. I always see her talking about comic books and recommending them and gushing over them. So yes, definitely check her out.
  7. Julianne @ OulandishLit – She started her own readathon/readalong for the month of March, plus she’s just sarcastic and funny. I’m finding a theme here.
  8. Jacquelyn @ jacquelynreads – She’s a really nice person who reads a TON of books. I’m surprised she even has time for homework or anything considering the sheer amount that she reads.
  9. Stefani @ StafaniSloma – She’s a librarian, which is super cool, plus she retweets a lot of different polls, giveaways, and blog posts.
  10. Hafsah @ hafsahfaizal – She has an awesome taste for talent in the graphic world, but she also does book reviews and other things with authors.

Who would you recommend and what platform are they on? Let me know and I’ll check them out!

Themeathon Week 2 Wrap-Up & Week Three Beginning

Hey, we made it through week two of Themeathon!

Week Two Wrap-Up

thewrathandthedawnThis week was a tough week for me and so I didn’t manage to finish the book I was reading, but I’ll keep reading it until I do and all that jazz. This will cut into the book I was planning on reading for week three as there is also another book I’ve been dying to read since I got it last week, so we’ll see if I actually get to this book.

P.S. I’m also in a reading slump.

The book I was supposed to finish reading was “The Wrath & the Dawn” by Renee Ahdieh, but I am only just over 25% of the way through as of this moment, and so I will continue to read it until I finish it.

Dangerous Love: For this week’s theme this entire book’s plotline fits the bill because it’s about a girl who volunteer’s to become the next queen because the king has a new wife every night who is supposedly killed and then he takes a new one.

I, unfortunately, do not have a poem for you because I haven’t finished the book and therefore I don’t know the love interest very well. I can gather a few things about him, but I don’t know enough to write a full out poem. Next week I’ll include a poem in my wrap-up for the week.

Week Three: July 17-24

harrypottergobletoffireIt’s all about the villains you love to hate in this week’s themeathon challenge, and so my pick for the week was to finish “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” by J.K. Rowling. I am about 14% of the way through right now, which isn’t far, and it’s a really hefty book so I’m not sure that I’ll be reading it this week.

We all know the villain(s) we love to hate in this series, right?

Mini-Challenges:

  • Describe the book you chose with emojis on Twitter.
  • Write a haiku of the villain in the book you’re reading and share it on your blog/Twitter/wherever.
  • Watch a book-to-movie adaptation of said book, if there is one.

If I’m able to, I will do my best to complete all of the mini-challenges, but I’m not sure that I’ll even get to this book this week. Fingers crossed I will!

The Twitter reading sprint will be:

  • Wednesday, July 22nd @ 3:00PM EST until 6:00PM EST
  • I should actually be able to make it for this round.

Let me know what you’re planning on reading this week, I’d love to hear!
