I love making little infographics for this blog and I love making lists too so I thought this would be an interesting post, the ratings are ofcourse from Goodreads. I am also thinking of doing a challenge related to these books so watch out for that as well. 😊 Top 10 Lowest Rated Books in my TBR Shelf Forest Dark by Nicole Krauss See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman Dear Mr. M by Herman Koch The Woman Upstairs by Claire Messud The Final Solution by Michael Chabon Go Set a Watchman (To Kill a Mockingbird, #2) by Harper Lee Did You See Melody? by Sophie Hannah Delicate Monsters by Stephanie Kuehn The Girl with a Clock for a Heart by Peter Swanson Top 10 Highest Rated Books in my TBR Shelf The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah Gemina (The Illuminae Files, #2) by Amie Kaufman The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas The One Hundred Nights of Hero by Isabel Greenberg The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo The Final Empire (Mistborn, #1)

Exploring the Whimsical World of Middle Grade Books: A Collection of Adventures, Friendships, and Coming-of-Age Tales

I find immense pleasure in delving into middle-grade books due to their enchanting and innocent nature, often revolving around themes of friendship and personal growth. I particularly relish the excitement of adventure-themed tales and the allure of mysteries, especially those with a touch of the paranormal. Surprisingly, many adults tend to overlook middle-grade or chapter books in favor of young adult literature. I'm curious to know your thoughts on this matter—do you share my fondness for middle-grade books? Allow me to share a resonant quote from C.S. Lewis that perfectly encapsulates my sentiments. A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story in the slightest.

Unveiling My Literary Treasures: My All-Time Favorite Books That Captivated My Soul

Around ten years ago, when I began delving into reading more seriously and keeping track of the books I read, I came across most of the books on this list. It's worth noting that my ratings may seem a bit skewed, as not all of them are rated with the highest five-star rating. This is because I have specific criteria for my ratings. Even if a book deeply moved me and evoked strong emotions, if I didn't find the writing style or storyline compelling enough, it could still receive a four-star rating. On the other hand, there are books I've given five stars to that I can't recall what initially appealed to me. Ratings, in my opinion, are subjective, and I acknowledge that I can't always be completely logical or critical when assigning them. Naturally, I have my biases towards certain genres or tropes.  Out of the 343 books on my shelf, I have selected 15 that have earned either a five-star or four-star rating. These books represent the cream of the crop, so to speak, an

Thriller Book Hunt: Seeking the Best, Sharing My Latest DNFs...

In the oversaturated market of thriller books, I constantly find myself grappling with the lack of truly gripping reads. I can't help but question whether the issue lies with my own preferences. Am I the one to blame? To borrow from a popular meme, am I the drama? My Goodreads read list seems to be filled with mediocre ratings, leaving me increasingly fatigued by hastily written books driven solely by commercial motives. The last time I came across a four-star book was back in January, when I read Vanishing Falls by Poppy Gee . While it doesn't strictly fall under the thriller genre, it had intriguing mystery elements. Sadie by Courtney Summers , on the other hand, counts as a phenomenal five-star thriller, but again it's been quite some time since I delved into its pages. Unfortunately, good thrillers seem to be few and far between. In an attempt to explore more popular thriller releases, I've recently encountered three books that ended up as DNFs for me this year.

Book Series on my Shelves: The Oldies but Goodies, the Shamefully Unread, the Guilty Pleasures and the DNFs

With an extensive collection of over 200 book series on my shelves, I've carefully selected the most relevant and intriguing ones to share in this post. I've also included several older published books that I believe deserve more recognition. If you have any beloved book series that you think deserve a spotlight, feel free to share and comment below. I'm always eager to discover new recommendations and engage in book discussions! Jane Marple is a woman whose knitting needles are as sharp as her intellect. Beneath her seemingly innocent appearance lies a razor-sharp mind that can unravel the most complex of mysteries. With her keen eye for human nature and a knack for finding clues in the most unlikely places. Just like her namesake flower, she may be delicate and unassuming, but her wit and wisdom make her a force to be reckoned with in the world of crime-solving. The Miss Marple series was my introduction to whodunnit mysteries so it holds a special place in my heart and m
