Top Ten Tuesday: Romance Freebie | Favourite OTP’s

In the spirit of all things Valentine’s day and romance, Jana has thrown us a romance freebie. Sometimes, I really can’t be doing with a freebie week, and find it quite difficult to settle on a topic, but this time, I’ve embraced it whole-heartedly (heart ❤ geddit!). I was thinking of romance books, and just how much I don’t love a novel when the central theme is a romantic pairing, so I abandoned all notions of writing a list of my favourite romance stories, and decided to think about my favourite pairings.

For all of you who don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, or don’t know how to get involved, click here. The lovely folks at Broke and Bookish teamed together to create this awesome weekly prompt, which is now hosted by the wonderful Jana @ The Artsy Reader Girl. Quite simply, you list the top ten of the topic prompt.

Bout of Books – Day 2


10am: I am up earlier than usual, this is nice, a productive day of reading will hopefully ensue. I’ve already had (and passed) a telephone job interview, and I am going out with my Aunt and Gran in about an hour, so after that, the day is dedicated to Darcy. I got some more reading done before bed, my reading count is now at 181 pages! If I struggle later, I think I am going to start High Rise at the same time, we’ll see. Watch this space!

3pm: I went to Croxteth Hall this lunchtime with my Aunt and Gran. It was nice, it finally stopped raining! Looking at the hall reminded me of the splendour that stately homes within Pride and Prejudice are described to have, it definitely feels like an estate that could fit within the pages of the book. It’s renewed my want to read it, which is good. I think reading it in the day is better for my concentration, I seem to progress much better with it. My reading count has risen to 206 pages.

4:15pm: I have read a bit more, but became distracted by my Rubiks Cube, which is now solved! And I completed the second of today’s challenges – the Book Spine Poetry creation. I hope it’s OK. (See Below)

10:30pm: I am now 258 pages in, making decent progress. I got sidetracked by making a goodreads, a youtube channel (so I can start posting videos and vlogs) and having a bit of a rant about social media campaigns.
