📚Top Ten Tuesday: Mardi Gras

Happy Tuesday, everyone!
It is looking pretty snowy here today! Despite the snow, I still managed to get to the store and secure my copy of A Court of Silver Flames, which was released today! It was a bit of an adventure not only because the roads were quite snowy (the roads were not terrible but they certainly weren’t the best) but also because Barnes and Noble wasn’t supposed to open until 12pm due to the inclement weather. I got there at 9:30am (I know, it was a bit early but I was excited okay 😂) as they usually open at 10am. Luckily I checked the store hours posted on their door or else I would have been sitting there (in the car) for nothing (because I have work). I promptly made my way over to Target and secured my copy there, thankfully! And thankfully today is another late start day for work. Anyway, I am soooo excited to read ACOSF! 🥰😍😁 If you are reading it, were you able to get your copy?!

Today’s post is Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ThatArtsyReaderGirl. “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together” -Jana. Each week, there is a new topic and this week’s topic is in the spirit of Mardi Gras: Purple, Yellow, and/or Green Book Covers!

The Hand on The Wall by Maureen Johnson CR: HarperCollins Children’s Publishing
The Unhoneymooners
Meet Cute
Tales From the Hinterland (The Hazel Wood, #2.5)
The Bone Witch (The Bone Witch, #1)
Awaken (Abandon, #3)

Do you celebrate Mardi Gras? I have never celebrated before but I think it would be fun to partake in the festivities one year. What are your favorite books with purple, yellow or green covers? Have you read any of the ones I’ve listed above? Let me know in the comments below!

    • It was! I was a bit frustrated at first (with the combination of my nerves with driving in the snow/the roads being not so great and then the store not being yet open…) but I didn’t want to start the day negatively and decided that it was to be an adventure to track down my copy of the book 🥰 It was more exciting to view it as an adventure anyway.

      Thanks for stopping by, Lydia!


    • Hahah, no worries. I have started series and not finished them as well – everyone at some point has! I hope you get the chance to pick the series up again. The covers are very pretty! I love just admiring the cover art. I really wish that the newest book’s cover had not been changed from the original covers😭

      Thanks for stopping by! 🥰

    • I hope you get ACOSF soon!!! It is really good so far. I probably should have pre-ordered but I have never really been into it honestly 😂 Hahah literally me about reading The Stand while reading ACOSF 😂 😂 😂 Thanks for stopping by!! I have not yet read some of these like The Unhoneymooners or Meet Cute but I would really like to. I want to explore “romance” as a genre more this year. Thanks for stopping by, Leslie! 🥰

      • Girl, I pre-ordered and it’s not supposed to be here until tomorrow, hopefully!! 😛 You definitely did the smarter thing, haha. I am glad you are enjoying it so far! I actually decided to explore romance more last year and LOVED a lot of what I found! Really exciting and I hope you love it too!! Have a wonderful read and I can’t wait to see what you think of Silver Flames!! 🙂 ❤
