Top Ten Tuesday

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish, and has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week is Top Ten underrated books themed. I did books I read recently that I loved but haven’t talked about or it feels like no one is talking about.

10. 33914010 Now is Everything – Amy Giles. This was a dual timeline read that was very interesting and kept me guessing. We saw the lead up to an event and the aftermath.

9. Sanctuary Sanctuary – Caryn Lix. This was a great Sci-Fi read and I can’t wait for the next one.

8. 35098416 When My Heart Joins the Thousand – AJ Stieger. Ow my heart.

7. Dangerous Art of Blending in The Dangerous Art of Blending In – Angelo Surmelis. Again, ow my heart.

6. Moxie Moxie – Jennifer Mathieu. Girl power!

5. Like Water Like Water – Rebecca Podos. So good!

4. Ginny Moon Ginny Moon – Benjamin Ludwig. I loved the characters, especially Ginny.

And 3 upcoming books that deserve all the hype/praise they can get.

3. 38718233 The Next Person You Meet in Heaven – Mitch Albom. Following up something like The Five People You Meet in Heaven after so long is a huge task but Mitch Albom does is amazingly.

2. 31332356 The Resolutions – Mia Garcia. I want to be part of this friends group!

  1. What If It's Us What If It’s Us – Becky Albertalli/Adam Silvera. Read it! It’s so worth it!

Top Ten Tuesday

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish, and has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week is Top Ten most bingeworthy shows of all time.

10. Musketeers – One way to suck me in is to have amazing characters that play off each other well. This show is gold.

9. American Ninja Warrior – This is the first season I’ve watched more than an episode and I’ve already watched a lot of the past seasons to catch up.

8. Breaking Bad – This show will never not be addicting.

7. Charmed – The original of course. I can easily binge watch a whole season or two of this show in a weekend before going back to real life.

6. Royal Pains – I love medical shows and this one was unique. I loved the relationship between the two brothers.

5. The Big Bang Theory – There’s always a marathon on so it’s a convenient binge watch but it’s also easy to pick up pretty much anywhere in the show and you can still understand what’s going on.

4. White Collar – Loved the chemistry between all of the characters, but especially Peter and Neal. How could you not love Neal?

3. The West Wing – I still binge-watch the early seasons. I usually end up moving on to something else by the time I get to Sam Seaborn leaving but it’s still great to binge watch. Jed Bartlett for president again please.

2. Code Black. Only 3 seasons(still hoping for a miracle rescue) but it was so addicting. The bromance between Mario and Angus was amazing.

  1. ER – My first medical show. The nostalgia is strong with this one. There was nothing I didn’t love about this show.

Top Ten Tuesday

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish, and has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week is Top Ten school freebie so I did Top Ten Books I wish existed when I was in high school.

10. female of the species The Female of the Species. Mindy McGinnis. There were dark books in high school but none like this. This book tackled rape culture, had an amazing female lead, and some great friendships.

9. unwind big Unwind – Neal Shusterman. Dystopian wasn’t very popular when I was in high school but I feel like if this one had existed, I would have written all my essays on it.

8. three dark crowns Three Dark Crowns – Kendare Blake. I was in high school before YA was as huge as it is now, especially the fantasy genre, but I could easily see this one being another favourite to write essays on.

7. challenger deep Challenger Deep – Neal Shusterman. This continues to be one of the most impactful books I’ve ever read.

6. Eliza and her monsters Eliza and Her Monsters – Francesca Zappia. A lot of the books that were required to read in high school were hard for me to connect with, but if this one had been around, so much connection!

5. All of this is True All of This is True – Lygia Day Penaflor. So many essays could be written about this book!

4. salt to the sea Salt to the Sea – Ruta Sepetys. I always liked history but the books we were required to read focused on the same battles we were taught in history class so getting something new would have been great.

3. goodbye The Last Time We Say Goodbye – Cynthia Hand. This is a book that made me appreciate my siblings so much more. My last year of high school was one of my sister’s first year but we barely saw each other due to different social circles. Maybe books like this one would have made us connect a little more.

2. simon homo sapiens Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda – Becky Albertalli. There was a definite lack of LGBT books in our curriculum and library at that time.

  1. all the bright places All the Bright Places – Jennifer Niven. Same as above, but with mental illness.
