They're expected to be perfect...
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.
This week is a thankful freebie. I'm kinda pressed for time this week so I'm just going to go with books I'm thankful for- for whatever reason. It could be because it opened up a new genre to me, or because a blogger recommended it and I ended up loving it, or whatever. These are the books that have touched me in some way or that I'm just thankful I discovered. Oh, and if you celebrate Thanksgiving- happy Thanksgiving!!!
I say it every time I see a book by Rainbow Rowell on any kind of list, but someday I really should read one of her books!! Alas, I haven't yet. Fangirl certainly sounds fun though. :)ReplyDelete
Always thankful for The Long way to a Small Angry Planet <3ReplyDelete
Good Girls Lie and its tagline certainly sounds promising!ReplyDelete
Seeing the cover for The Originals has made me realise how much I miss Cat Patrick's books. I really hope she publishes something in the near future!ReplyDelete
Great list! I love The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet, and one of these days I need to cross Fangirl off my TBR.ReplyDelete
I really should read Big Little Lies sometime.ReplyDelete
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.
I feel the same way about Lord of the Rings. Good list.ReplyDelete
OMG yes to LOTR!! Also, I am fairly sure Fangirl is was turned me on to fanfiction, which I will be forever grateful for!!ReplyDelete
Nice list! I've read and enjoyed several of these books.ReplyDelete
Hey! Great topic idea! I did this one, too! :)ReplyDelete
That's nice. THe only one I tried in Fangirl thereReplyDelete
There are so many books I am thankful for as well. Glad these made it into your life.ReplyDelete
That's an awesome list of books to be thankful for :DReplyDelete
Happy Thanksgiving Greg!ReplyDelete
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Greg! And yes, I'm definitely thankful for all things Tolkien.ReplyDelete
I am glad I read Big Little Lies, because it introduced me to Moriarty, who I think is a phenomenal storytellerReplyDelete
Have a wonderful T-Giving!ReplyDelete
I see quite a few books that I have sitting on my tbr shelf and not a single one that I have actually read. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
Amen to the top one!!ReplyDelete
Funny, I read another fabulous book entitled The Blue - historical novel/mystery on the Derby Porcelain. Fascinating, and superb writing: https://wordsandpeace.com/2018/11/27/book-review-the-blue/
I think we must have vastly different opinions of Rainbow Rowell ;)ReplyDelete
The thing that bugs me the most about her writing is the stupid names. She's just using cities and town in Nebraska as character names and it drives me bonkers. Well, it is one of the many things that drives me bonkers about her books. But, I am glad you enjoy them!
I loved the Extinction Trials trilogy! Beautiful covers, great characters and dinosaurs...who could ask for more!!!ReplyDelete
I’m thankful for Fangirl, too! It introduced me to Rainbow Rowell’s work and taught me that I might like books outside my comfort zone.ReplyDelete
Aj @ Read All The Things!
I'm thankful for LOTR and Fangirl too :D Great list!ReplyDelete
Your love for Nine Perfect Strangers is making me really want to read it. :) Happy Thanksgiving, Greg!ReplyDelete
Some good books on here! Fangirl is one I have got to read soon, I can't believe I'm so far behind! Great list, and thanks for visiting my Top 10 at Lisa Loves Literature earlier!ReplyDelete
Ahhhhhh I love Fangirl too. It’s my favorite contemporary book and at the time I didn’t write a traditional review. �� I kick myself for that. I think I just related hardcore to it.ReplyDelete
OHHH! So many good books on here and so much to be thankful for. Ah, The Originals AND Eight Hundred Grapes are sooo underrated!ReplyDelete
I added The Blue to my TBR because of you - I really need to get to it! Happy Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
Definitely Fangirl. That's one of the comp books for my NaNoWriMo 2019 book. And I was named after a Lord of the Rings character, so I can be thankful for that one too, LOL. Happy Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
I guess I am thankful that most of these books are sitting on my bookshelf because you said they should be? And that someday, I might even read them? 😂ReplyDelete
LoTR is a good one... I guess I'm grateful for the movies for convincing me to read the books!ReplyDelete
Fangirl I still haven't read. I wanted to read it. I bought it. Still haven't... Sigh.
That cover on the Extinction series is one of my faves. No surprise though because I love purple. Hope you had a wonderful holiday.ReplyDelete
Long Way! 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍✨ReplyDelete
Good choice of books! I'm thankful of Fangirl for making me feel like I wasn't the only weirdo reading/writing fanfic at uni. And I love Becky Chambers books for showing me a different side to sci-fi.ReplyDelete
I too am thankful for LOTR, those are just such great books. And I so need to read Fangirl soon.ReplyDelete
