Top 5 Wednesday/ Books From Before You Joined

Standard

Top 5 Wednesday

Hello Wednesday people,  another Top 5 Wednesday  going back in time with

August 23rd: Books from Before You Joined ________
— These are some of your favorite books from before you joined the online book community, whether that be booktube, goodreads, blogs, bookstagram, twitter, tumblr, etc.

I celebrated my 5 year anniversary this year on WordPress in February and Goodreads in August. I stumbled upon Booktube sometime after or around the time I was introduced to Goodreads and blogging. My taste has not evolve drastically since I thrust myself into the social book world but I must admit that there are many books that I read because of networking. So here are the books and genre that I love before book world expanded beyond the physical library.

Let us dive into it:

The Ths Is My Genre Tell Me Yours Book Tag Drew @ TheTattooedBookGeek

1). What’s your favourite genre?

My favourite genre is a mix between History and Historical Romance

2). Who’s your favourite author from the genre?

My favourite author did not write History or Historical Romance but she wrote based on her time period which is The Romantic Period (1785 – 1832) . Today, many refer to her [Jane Austen] work as Classics. She is my only favourite author (for now), thus I do not have a favourite author in my favourite genres which is quite weird, if I do say so myself.

3). What is it about the genre that keeps pulling you back?

Retelling of the past. I love reading about an event or the lives of people in a time period which existed before I came on earth. A period of time when technology was not so advance, when the foundation that governed families, churches and country were in their building stages. A time when horse power referred to an actual horse, when traffic was cattle crossing or when the first inhabitants roamed across vast plains.

Top 5 Wednesday

Hey all people, happy Wednesday and greetings in the name of another Top 5 Wednesday. Don’t you look forward to this day of the week? It is definitely a chance to read so many opinions on a new book topic. This week we take a look at favourite buzz words, you know that key word which make you “yes this one is for the buying/getting.” This week Top 5 Wednesday sums up my favourite types of books to read.

 

Let us dive into it:

 

1. Jane Austen

What? Did somebody say Jane Austen? Where? How? Why?

That name is one guarantee to make me stop and stare. Although yours truly is a bit cautious now to read the summary because of earlier burns by some authors taking Jane Austen name and books and turning  it into a sieving heap of nonsense. However, in the past the name Jane Austen played peek-a -boo through the book cover with my book spirit, seconds later: myself paying for books at the cashier sans reading even the summary at the back.

My Year In Books

Standard

Books

Honestly it is not necessary  to post my Goodreads statistics but the My Year In Books is just so pleasing to the eye, I cannot help but share [just so put together and pretty]. I normally do not post all my reviews on here because I do not feel it is necessary. Yelhispressing is not a specific book blog, so my reviews are more on the route of a journal. I have discovered books via blogs in genres I liked, so starting in January 2015 I decided to post a few of my reviews here. Maybe someone will scroll to one of my reads that interests them. Furthermore, it is my love for reading and discovering new books which led to my participation in Top 5 Wednesday. I love meeting people who love reading either for education or entertainment.

A Wedding In Springtime [A Book Review]

Standard

Romance Novel Who is that William Grant person and where can I kiss him? I meant where I could meet him. I am sorry Genie but your fellow is dashing with a smooth tongue which only leads to trouble for people like me. Thus, since he is already yours, I will appeal to Amanda Forester for my own. Men as William exists only in novels; what a sad fact.
