Top Ten Books I Want My Future Children To Read

top ten tuesday 11-14-17 blog header

It’s Tuesday again which means it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday post! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme or prompt for which you come up with a list of ten books or ideas. This week’s theme is books I want my future children to read. I left out Harry Potter this week because I had a feeling a lot of people would be including it in their posts and I wanted to be at least somewhat original. 😛 Basically, all of the books on this list are here for one of two reasons: they’re one of my all-time favorites and I’d want my kids to experience them or they discuss really important issues that I’d want my kids to know about. I’ll talk a little bit about each one down below, so let’s get into it.

It’s Tuesday again which means it’s time for yet another Top Ten Tuesday post! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme or prompt for which you come up with a list of ten books or ideas. This week is a Halloween freebie. I think last year I used this to talk about horror books on my TBR and I almost did that this time too until I realized that it would essentially be the exact same list since I suck at getting to books on my TBR, haha. I always associate mysteries and thrillers with Halloween too, so I decided to talk about some of those books this time around. So let’s take a look at some of the thrillers on my TBR!

Top Ten Unique Book Titles

It’s Tuesday again which means it’s time for yet another Top Ten Tuesday post! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme or prompt for which you come up with a list of ten books or ideas. This week’s theme is unique book titles. It was so much fun coming up with ideas for this list! I didn’t end up really explaining my choices this week, simply because I wasn’t really sure what to say other than “this title isn’t like anything else I’ve seen” and “it really grabs you and makes you want to read it.” For a couple of them, I added a sentence or two, though, because I honestly hate when posts like this are just a list of titles, haha. But anyway, I’m pretty excited to share my choices, so let’s take a look!

Top Ten Cookbooks I’d Like

It’s Tuesday again which means it’s time for yet another Top Ten Tuesday post! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme or prompt for which you come up with a list of ten books or ideas. This week’s theme is yummy foods mentioned in books. I couldn’t really come up with much for this topic. The only thing I could really think of was the lemon tarts that Cath makes in Heartless! So I decided to do something related to food, but a little different: cookbooks I’d like. I don’t have any cookbooks, but these are all ones that I’d like either because they’re inspired by favorite series of mine or because they seem like they’d have lots of yummy recipes. Without further delay, let’s get into it!

Top Ten Books With Creepy Covers

It’s Tuesday again which means it’s time for yet another Top Ten Tuesday post! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme or prompt for which you come up with a list of ten books or ideas. This week’s theme is books with fall covers/themes. I decided to tweak this a little bit and make it books with creepy covers instead. I couldn’t really think of many books with fall covers, but I always associate fall with creepiness because of Halloween, so I figured this theme would work well enough. Anyway, let’s take a look at the covers I picked out.

Top Ten Books That Feature Characters of Color

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme or prompt for which you come up with a list of ten books or ideas. This week’s theme is books that feature ______ characters, where you get to decide which type of characters you want to talk about. I actually only have nine titles this week because I wanted to include only books that I’ve read recently (within the past two years), that I really personally enjoyed, and that had main characters of color, not just love interests or secondary characters of color. So that leaves me recommending the following nine books:

Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR

Top Ten Tuesday blog header 9-19-17

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme or prompt for which you come up with a list of ten books or ideas. This week’s theme is a very easy one for me to come up with ten books for: books on my fall TBR. As my followers are probably well aware, I always set pretty ambitious TBRs so there are plenty of books that I could include on this list and it was pretty hard for me to narrow it down. But anyway, I did my best and came up with 10 books that I’m hoping to read this fall!
