Top 10 Tuesday: Bookish Discoveries of 2019

Hello dear readers, and welcome back to another round of Top Ten Tuesday.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Today’s Top Ten list is all about Bookish things I discovered in 2019…so I hope you enjoy.

#1 Brandon Sanderson

I didn’t technically discover Sanderson in 2019, but I think I fell in love with him in 2019. I had read a handful of his works before, but I really found out how good of an author he really is. 2019 was a great chance for me to read some of the Mistborn series…and I can’t wait to read them in 2020, along with his new Starlight Archive book.


#2 Ink to Film

This is a podcast I found near the end of 2019, but it has been bumped up my list to be my next listen to. The first episode I listened to had me hooked from the start, and I like the varying perspectives of the same story. If you like books and their film adaptations, this podcast is definitely worth the time to listen to it.


#3 Fictional

The second of two podcasts on this list, and one for the classic literature lovers. This podcasts takes books, and gives them a modern telling. I like hearing the modern day versions of some classic stories. It’s sort of like Myths and Legends…but for books!


#4 Blog Tours

I got to be a part of my first Blog Tour near the end of 2019, and I was quickly looking for more. They’re a good opportunity to reach out to other bloggers and read their perspectives of the same book that you read.


#5 Dungeons and Dragons

Not necessarily a book, but I am counting it on this list. Dungeons and Dragons has been so much fun, for the little bit of playing that I have done. If you’ve played it before, then you know how much fun it can be.


#6 Audiobooks

I only tapped into the audio-book market this year, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it all. I loved how immersed into the story I felt, and even when I felt like I wasn’t listening, I was still absorbing the whole story.


#7 My Book

Not much has come out of this yet…but it all started in 2019. That’s when I came up with the idea of the story I wanted to write, and that’s when I came up with the determination to see it through to the end.


#8 Speechify

Speechify is this really awesome text to speech app I discovered. I can’t afford an Audible subscription right now, but I have a few book-tours ongoing, and since I find myself in short supply of reading time, Speechify can read PDF documents out loud, which has helped me finish a few books already.


#9 Short Stories

Not something I discovered in 2019, but something I found a new appreciation for. I actually generally enjoy short stories more than some full-length pieces simply because they are shorter, and often have interesting endings to them.


#10 Ten Games to Play in Your Head by Yourself

A book I got for Christmas, and one I have not yet cracked open. I keep hearing better and better things about this book, and I can’t wait till I have the time to read through it.
