Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Reading Recommendations for my Cousin Through the Years

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I Want my Future Children to Read.

While this could change at the moment I don’t see myself having children. However one of my younger cousins has developed an all-consuming love of Harry Potter, the series that kick-started my obsession with reading, so for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic I’ve done a list of series, author and book recommendations for her for once she’s ready to move on from Harry Potter.

Kiss, Marry, Cliff Tag

This is such a fun and unique idea for a tag. I chose nine books at random and, flicking through the pages, picked the first character name I saw. It was very easy to decide who to cliff, harder to decide who to kiss and who to marry. I was tagged by Nicole at Sorry I’m Booked. Thanks so much for the tag Nicole, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Kiss Marry Cliff Tag

Rules:

  • Put names of characters, written on separate pieces of papers, in an empty jar or a pen holder.
  • Shake the jar.
  • Pull out three pieces of paper in each round and tell us which character you would kiss, marry, or cliff!

Top Ten Tuesday: Five Characters who Have Made Great Leaders and Five Characters who Wouldn’t Make Great Leaders

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Characters who Would Make Great Leaders.

I put a little twist on this week’s theme and instead I’m going to focus on five characters who’ve made great leaders, and five characters who wouldn’t make great leaders and should in no way be put in a leadership position. I read a lot of fantasy, and if there’s one thing there’s plenty of in the fantasy genre it’s leaders, be they lost princesses fighting for their throne or rebels fighting for a cause.

Hocus Pocus Book Tag

Granted Halloween has been and gone, so I’m a little late posting this, but I couldn’t take part in the Hocus Pocus book tag without having seen Hocus Pocus. It was my Halloween movie pick for this year, and now I’ve seen it I feel I can actually publish this tag. I was tagged by Lilly at Lair of Books. Thanks so much for the tag Lilly, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Things Needed for a Perfect Halloween to Yourself

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is a Halloween freebie, so I picked Top Ten Things Needed for a Perfect Halloween to Yourself.

Happy Halloween everyone!

I’m not a massive fan of Halloween; partly because it’s more of an American thing than a British one and partly because I never went  trick-or-treating as a child. Still I love the atmosphere of October 31st, even if I choose to celebrate Halloween by reading, watching movies, and eating loads of chocolate that should really go to the trick-or-treaters who knock on the door.

The Fall Time, Cosy Time Book Tag

You know how it goes, you wait ages for a bus and suddenly three come along at once. It seems to have been the same this month with fall-inspired book tags. Not that I’m complaining; I love both book tags and the fall. I was tagged by Alex at Whimsy Pages. Thanks so much for the tag Alex, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books Where the Title IS the Cover

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Unique Book Titles.

When it comes to books the main thing that draws me to them (other than who wrote it when it comes to authors like V.E. Schwab and Marissa Meyer) is the cover. If a book has a pretty cover chances are I’ll immediately pick it up so for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme rather than focus on unique titles, because I largely read fantasy so I have a lot of unique titles to choose from, I decided to focus on books where the title is the cover.

The Fall Book Tag

Unlike my last fall inspired tag this one hasn’t been sitting in my queue for a whole year, and instead of leaving it to sit in my queue until next fall I’ve moved it up my list. After all we’re currently mid-way through fall so it’s the perfect time to post this. I was tagged by Lilly at Lair of Books. Thanks so much for the tag Lilly, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.
