Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.
The rules are simple:
- Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
- Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
- Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists.
- Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.
This week’s topic is Unpopular Bookish Opinions but I’m really not sure I have any or, if I do, I’m not sure I’d want to spread that negativity. So I’ve decided to revisit a previous topic – Books on My Spring 2019 TBR – and see just how good I’ve been at sticking to my intended reading.

Books on The Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction 2019 Longlist
Sorry, still haven’t read this one but, in my defence, it didn’t make the shortlist and I’ve been prioritising reading those that did.
Warlight by Michael Ondaatje
Now this one I have read, as it did make the shortlist. Unfortunately, I still need to write my review.
Now We Shall Be Entirely Free by Andrew Miller
Another one that made the shortlist but I haven’t yet read. There are only a few days until the winner is announced (on 15th June) but I’m hoping I may just be able to squeeze it in.
Books To Read For Blog Tours
Unsurprisingly I read all of these as the fear of missing my slot on the blog tour helped focus the mind…and the reading brain.
Sunwise by Helen Steadman
Pilgrim by Louise Hall
Dark Sky Island by Lara Dearman
Call Me Star Girl by Louise Beech
Advance Reader Copies
A mixed bag here – one read and reviewed, one read but not yet reviewed and one not yet read.
