I’m back again with a new Top Ten Tuesday! ! TTT has actually moved from The Broke and the Bookish now and is actually over at That Artsy Reader Girl so go and check out everyone’s posts over there!
This week’s TTT is all about popular books! We all know that popular books can have a tendency to be over-hyped, but there are some books out there that deserve the hype they get – and these are some of my favourites!
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
This book is absolutely wonderful. It was all I heard about in the months running up to it’s release earlier this year, and after reading it let me tell you it is so very worth it. The writing is everything and I adored it!

Violet Holt has already met Death once.
After a failed suicide attempt, she finds herself dumped by her callous mother on the doorstep of her family’s desolate oceanside estate.

I’m back with my BookTubeAThon 2018 TBR! I had SO much fun last year with the BTAT 17, and managed to read all of the books I set, and do the majority of the bookstagram and video challenges – it was one of the best weeks ever!
I’m so excited to once again be taking part in it this year, however due to having no wifi at home I probably won’t be able to take part in any of the booktube challenges *cries forever*. I still want to take part in the readathon though, so I will be doing as many of the bookstagram challenges and the reading challenges as I can fit around work!
Anyway let’s get into my TBR! There are so many amazing challenges this year, and I love them so let’s talk about it!
Coin Toss Choice:
For this challenge Ariel wants us to let a coin decide what we read, which I think is so much fun! I picked two books, The Dazzling Heights by Katharine McGee and The Shock of the Fall, and then tossed a coin to decide which one and the winner was…
The Dazzling Heights by Katharine McGee!

All Safi and Iseult want is their freedom, but danger lies ahead. With war coming, treaties breaking and a magical contagion sweeping the land, the friends will have to fight emperors and mercenaries alike. For some will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.Review:

Title: The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris
Release: 11th January 2018
Synopsis: In 1942, Lale Sokolov arrived in Auschwitz-Birkenau. He was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival – scratching numbers into his fellow victims’ arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust. Waiting in line to be tattooed, terrified and shaking, was a young girl. For Lale – a dandy, a jack-the-lad, a bit of a chancer – it was love at first sight. And he was determined not only to survive himself, but to ensure this woman, Gita, did, too. So begins one of the most life-affirming, courageous, unforgettable and human stories of the Holocaust: the love story of the tattooist of Auschwitz.Review:
This book is a brutal and raw account of the horrors that went on in Auschwitz, but also focusing on the true kindness of the human spirit.
