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 cover redesigns I either love/hate but I chose to do Top Ten favourite covers so far this year because I don’t pay much attention to cover changes once I own the book.

8. Four Dead Queens – Astrid Scholte

7. Internment – Samira Ahmed

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 character freebie so I did Top Ten Characters who meant a lot to me.

10. Anne Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables – LM Montgomery. I’m from PEI so it was cool to see a character growing up here.

9. lion Lucy from The Chronicles of Narnia – CS Lewis. It felt like we got to grow up with her through the books.

8. girl against the universe Maguire from Girl Against the Universe – Paula Stokes. Her journey of healing was so well done.

7. fangirl big Cath from Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell. I was young when I started University so I connected hard with Cath’s fears.

6. goodbye Lex from The Last Time We Say Goodbye – Cynthia Hand. This book hit me hard and Lex’s guilt was so easy to relate to and so memorable as an older sibling.

5. Eliza and her monsters Eliza from Eliza and Her Monsters – Francesca Zappia. For all the times I felt like my parents would never understand me.

4. bittersweet big Hudson from Bittersweet – Sarah Ockler. Would rather bake than face life? Sign me up for help.

3. Sadie Sadie from Sadie – Courtney Summers. A very recent book but a character I know will stay with me.

2. dumplin Willowdean from Dumplin’ – Julie Murphy. For all the big girls who deserve love to! Gotta love Willowdean!

  1. harry potter Harry/Ron/Hermione from Harry Potter – JK Rowling. Another trio of characters I feel like I grew up with even though I was much older than them when I started reading this series.

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 unpopular bookish opinions. I don’t think I have a lot of controversial opinions so these are more opinions that I’ve had to defend.

10. Read whatever you want. I can’t stand when people book-shame. If the book sounds good to you, read it.

9. You can learn life lessons from YA books, even as an adult.

8. Not every book needs a romance.

7. Reading isn’t a competition. It’s not about how many books you read or how many ARCs you get. You could read 10 books a year but still get more out of those 10 books than someone who read 100 books.

6. Problematic books should be talked about without the fear that someone will harass you for doing so. Nothing will change unless we talk about it.

5. There’s not enough love for YA Sci-Fi. There’s been some amazing books released in the last few years that seem like they’ve been swallowed up by the fantasy and contemporary trend.

4. Hardcovers over paperbacks!

3. YA is for everyone. Stop judging!

2. It’s okay to hate a book. It’s also okay to stop reading a book you’re not enjoying.

  1. Listening to an audiobook counts as reading it.

Top Ten Tuesday

toptentuesday

10. upside-of-unrequited The Upside of Unrequited – Becky Albertalli. I went to a signing so it’s personalized. No touching!

9. the-hate-u-give The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas. Same as above.

8. goodbye The Last Time We Say Goodbye – Cynthia Hand. This book just meant a lot to me when I read it.

7. Project Semicolon Project Semicolon – Like above, this book just hit me. I’d rather buy someone their own copy than give them mine.

6. lion Chronicles of Narnia – CS Lewis. I got the box set as a present so it means a lot.

5. challenger deep Challenger Deep – Neal Shusterman. This is another book that really affected me while I was reading so I don’t lend it out.

4. isle of night big The Watchers series – Veronica Wolff. This series has become hard to find and I don’t want to risk losing one of the books by it not being returned.

3. Tempests and Slaughter Any of my Tamora Pierce books. It took me a long time to collect them all.

2. Any book saved from my childhood. They’re so old now that they’d risk being ruined if they weren’t taken care of so no, no one can touch.

  1. harry potter Harry Potter – JK Rowling. I have two complete series of this. One I will let people borrow and one no one is allowed to touch.
