What is a round-up? A round-up is, simply put, a list with a theme. In this category you’ll find Top Ten Tuesday posts which is a list of 10 book related things, like “10 Wishes I’d Ask the Book Genie to Grant Me” and I post these every other week. I also periodically do my own round-ups, usually a list of books in a certain category like “5 Great Canadian Books” or “5 Crime Thrillers that Will Keep you Guessing”. These are quick and dirty lists that give you more book recommendations in a shorter time. Great for those of you not as interested in reading a full review.
