Top Ten Tuesday #239


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 new authors I read last year and I tried. I honestly did. My reading was so bad in 2020 I had trouble finding ten new authors- I mean, I had close to ten but honestly? I'm just not feeling it. So here is part three of my vintage SF covers. This is more fun.

  1. I almost skipped this week's topic just because (sometimes I need a break), but didn't and I'm glad since I did manage to find ten. :)

  3. I loved the Tom Cruise movie, War of the Worlds! I know it came out as a radio drama, too, narrated by Orson Wells and was so realistic people called in worried about an alien invasion! I used to listen to radio dramas late at night with my parents. Long, long time ago! Good times. :)

  6. Yeah, a few of the authors I picked that were new to me ones, weren't necessarily favorites either, I just chose them to help add to my 10! I read a lot of TBR authors last year and they were all ones I've read before and loved.


    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  12. It's funny, but Andre Norton is one of the scifi authors I never took to. Great covers!

  14. Ha ha such a rebel๐Ÿ˜ I love Eye of the Monster!

  15. Okay, Andre Norton is a definite favorite of yours. After The Rains just give me the creeps Greg. Any doomsday with water freaks me out a bit!!

  18. I've really got to get back to the rest of Jules Verne. I've read a couple, now the others are just sitting on my classic tbr list.

  19. Very nice! Sometimes we just have to do something different. I didn't really talk about last years but upcoming.

  20. The Rim of Space is my favorite on this list.

  21. Omigosh, I had that copy of Journey to the Center of the Earth as a kid! I found it in a used SFF bookstore. And I remember seeing some of those Andre Norton covers, though I haven't actually read those three titles (even though I was quite a fan of Norton for a while.)

    ReplyDelete
  22. That AFTER THE RAIN cover is terrifying! The others look too fantastical to happen in real life. AFTER THE RAIN, though? Yikes.

    Happy TTT!

  23. These are fun covers! I struggled with reading this past year too. I hope this year is better for both of us! Here is my Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

  24. These are so much fun! I love seeing all these vintage covers. :)

  25. I've always like The War of the Worlds.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm glad you went out of the box for this meme! OMG, I don't know Andre Norton!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Has Andre Norton written scifi that's really scifi, and not fantasy??

    ReplyDelete
  28. I look forward to every time you post these. What amazing covers.

    ReplyDelete
  29. That first Andre Norton cover is awesome! And I love any version of Journey to the Center of the Earth. :)

  30. Always choose a topic that is more fun. Thank you for sharing these covers.

    ReplyDelete
  31. That is some Noah-scale flooding in After the Rain! :-D Great covers!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I had to switch up topics this week too. And I'm loving the vintage sci fi covers so those are always a treat. That one for After the Rain is awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  33. The cover of After the Rain gives me Planet of the Apes vibes... when they saw the Statue of Liberty at the end.

    ReplyDelete
  34. The covers are always fun so you're off the hook lol

    My reading is the same but I've read 3 books in January so far (2 were under 40 pages though) so maybe the tide is turning for me.

  35. Okay that bat-monster is just not okay. Nope nope nope. Hell, neither is whatever is coming out of that poor man's spaceship. Can you even imagine? "Got my soil samples, let's head home!" No, sir, there are alien snakes here to eat you. After the Rain is freaky- reminds me of like, the opposite of the Dead Zone! And is it just me, or does the spaceship in Galactic Derelict look like he's got a case of the sads? I mean, I get it, but it's just fun! Great topic choice!

  37. Awesome, clearly more fun for me as well! Can't make up my mind which cover is my favorite, but the covers seem to match the title -- not so true these days where it's mostly just explosions and fancy fonts.
    And I hear you - 2020 was not my year for reading either. Something I'm trying to make up for with a vengeance in 2021, haha.

  39. Hallo, Hallo Greg,

    Eh, I feel you! 2020 wrecked my readerly life as well. Overall, I read the least amount of books and I think I had a record all-time low of finished reads vs new authors and the one thing I was proud of was how many guest features I hosted. But overall? Yeah, I feel you on this topic! When I was assembling my End of the Year Survey it put a lot into perspective about my final thoughts as a book blogger and reader in 2020. I ended up reconciling it all and feeling better but at the start of it? It just felt really depressing!!
