Top Ten Tuesday (#34): Top Ten Books I Want My Future Children to Read, While They are Still Children

toptentuesday-winter

Happy Tuesday everyone! I’m sorry to have missed a few Top Ten Tuesdays due to being far too busy. But I’m back now! And this week’s topic happens to be about something that I’ve actually been actively thinking about for some time now. I don’t have children yet, but I’ve sort of been compiling a rough list in my head, listing all of the books that I want to make sure that they have available. As a child, I sadly was unable to access diverse children’s books, and therefore was unable to list any here, but please share your suggestions with me, as I would love to add those to my kids’ library!

Top Ten Tuesday (#34): Top Ten Yummy Foods Mentioned In Books

                     top-ten-tuesday-halloween-edition

Happy Tuesday and TTT day! This week, we’re all going to leave each other’s posts feeling quite hungry, because this weeks prompt is all about food! Now, if you’re a foodie like me, you will have jumped right to your “read” list on Goodreads and made a top 10 list in no time! Books mention snacks that make me want to try them, or eat them again, all the time! So, I will usually remember which books mentioned which foods, and how badly I wanted to eat said foods, haha. Let’s dig in, shall we?

Top Ten Tuesday (#33): Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes

                     top-ten-tuesday-halloween-edition

And we’re back this Tuesday with another exciting prompt…Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes! Yes, I know, I love Autumn way too much. But I’m a strong believer that it’s better to fill your life with things that you like and love, than the opposite. Yes. Positivity! My spellchecker is saying that that is not a real world. Too bad. Anyway, this prompt was harder for me to complete than I’d first imagined. When I first saw the prompt over on The Broke and the Bookish I just kind of smiled to myself, cracked my knuckles, and started a search that I thought would be very short and very yielding. I was so very wrong, and in the end, ended up listing a bunch of books that I have not read yet! Some of them are not published yet, sure, but the rest….What’s my excuse? The upside of this adventure, is that I came across some books that I’d never seen or heard of before! But anyway, on to my top ten list!

Hello everyone, and welcome to my Top Ten Tuesday post for this week! This week’s prompt had me excited a week in advance! I, in fact, created the rough draft for this post last Wednesday or Tuesday, and actually wrote it out on Friday. Hahaha. The tag is top ten book boyfriends/girlfriends and it was so much fun to put together! Continue reading to see who I’ve picked!

Top Ten Tuesday (#31): Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR List

toptentuesday2

Hello everyone, and welcome to my Top Ten Tuesday post for this week! This theme, or prompt, is one which has me very excited because…I love Fall! I also thought that it’d be an easy choice, but once I looked at the official start and end dates for Fall, my face kind of fell, haha. Choosing the books on my TBR from September 22 to December 21st…well, let’s just say I didn’t know that Fall lasted that long because I live in Canada, and we get snow by some time in November usually. And when there’s snow on the ground, for me it officially becomes winter. But back to the books! Read on if you’d like to see which books I’m most excited to read for the rest of 2017 (and I’ll be listing them in the order that I’ll be reading them)!

Top Ten Tuesday (#30): Ten Books I Loved During The First Year I Started My Blog

toptentuesday2Soooo, I started blogging in April of 2016. Yes, just last year. But it seems like I’ve been doing this for so much longer than that! I feel like this has been my hobby for as long as I can remember. Very strange, all in all. But anyway, here are my top 10 favourite books that I read in the first year that I started my blog…last year…haha. These are all still current favourites as well, which goes to show just how much I liked them. Maybe I’ll have to take a look back in a year, or 2, or 3, and see how I feel about them then? It would be interesting to do, I think!

Top Ten Tuesday (#29): Ten Books I Struggled to Get Into But Ended Up Loving

toptentuesday2Oh my goodness. It’s been so long since I’ve made one of these Top Ten Tuesday posts! They went on hiatus for a while, and when they came back, I was just too busy with other things. The themes also didn’t really inspire me. Usually when I would complete the Top Ten Tuesday posts, I would start making a list in my head the moment that I saw the prompt! This didn’t happen for me with the last few prompts, but kind of did for this one? So, I thought, why not get back into it now? I should be reading right now, but really want to be writing in stead, for some reason. Woops.

Top Ten Tuesday (#28): Top Ten Books I’ve Read In 2017 So Far

toptentuesday2I had a very strange experience just a few minutes ago. Last night and this morning, while laying in bed, I was thinking of how I hadn’t looked at the Top Ten Tuesday prompt for this week yet, and that I really should. I was also thinking that I really wish Top Ten Tuesday would prompt us to share our best reads of 2017 so far, because I really want to talk about them! So, then I go to check the prompts…and was just creeped out, because this week’s is Best Books You’ve Read In 2017 So Far, hahaha…ha.

Top Ten Tuesday (#27): Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t

toptentuesday2
And I’m back! I’m sorry to have missed last week’s Top Ten Tuesday! I just don’t really pay attention to the dads in the books that I read…and therefore was unable to think of ten books to list for that prompt. I will have to go and check out the choices of those who did end up participating! Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads (real and literary) out there! This week it’s all about series we’ve been meaning to start, but just haven’t yet!
