Top Ten Tuesday: Book-to-Screen Adaptations

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is a freebie, so I picked Book-to-Screen Adaptations.

When it comes to my favourite books I always love hearing there’s an adaptation in development as much as I dread it, because how can a two-hour-long film or eight-episode-series live up to my favourite books. This week I’ve decided to feature my top four book-to-screen adaptations, my worst three, and my most anticipated three, because I’ve never quite learnt how to manage my sky high expectations.

Emoji Book Tag

I’ve done this tag before, but given how many emojis there are I can take part as many times as there are emojis left unused. I’m not one for using many emojis, other than hearts and smile-y faces, so I picked some of the more obscure ones out there. I was tagged by Sophie at Blame Chocolate. Thanks so much for the tag Sophie, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

The Emoji Book Tag

The rules for this tag are simple; pick five emoji’s and then pick five books that fit them.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Could Re-Read Forever

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. 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 Could Re-Read Forever.

It was actually one of my New Year’s resolutions to get more re-reading done this year, and granted it’s only February but I’m doing pretty well at the moment. So far I’ve re-read the His Dark Materials trilogy and I really hope to pick up the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series soon as well. This week was the perfect week for me to search through some of the old books I read, and loved, and will maybe get around to picking up later this year.

Discussion Time: Reasons I’m Thankful I Started, and Love, Reading

The very first book I can remember picking up and reading was Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Before that my parents would read fairytales to me, and after it was the Twilight series. It was the fairytales that inspired my love of magic and happily ever afters’, Twilight that inspired my love of YA fiction, and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone that inspired my overall love of reading.

Ever since I was a child there’s been so much I’ve loved about picking up a new book and diving into a new story. It’s why I’m still reading now twenty years after the first Harry Potter book was released. I have friends, and even family members, who rarely read. They pick up maybe one or two books a year, and I wonder how?!

Around the World in YA Tag

Is there anyone by now who doesn’t know that I love to travel? In case you didn’t then just as an FYI I have a major case of wanderlust. I want to be able to say I’ve stepped foot on every country at least once, I want to have visited every continent before I turn 30, I want to take a gap year and just spend continuous months travelling anywhere and everywhere. In short there is no country I don’t want to visit, nothing I don’t want to experience.

So really this was the perfect tag for me.

around-the-world-in-ya-tag

I was tagged by Izzi at Ravenclaw Book Club. Thank you so much for the tag Izzi; everyone else should definitely check out her original post and while you’re there her blog as well.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Felt Differently About After Re-Reading

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 Felt Differently About After Re-Reading.

I’ve started re-reading a lot of books since I started blogging, and for most of them my opinions have changed after going back to them a second time. Some got better as I noticed things I missed the first time – little nuances and subtleties which made the story so much more enjoyable – some I didn’t enjoy as much as I noticed plot inaccuracies or character quirks which became more and more annoying as the story progressed, and there are a small amount which, no matter how many times I read, I will always love.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books that Made Me Smile and Cry

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 That Made Me Smile and Cry.

I read a lot of books and most I love, but there are few which have made me want to smile so much I physically can’t hold it in. I find myself sat reading with a massive smile on my face because the story or the characters or the relationships just make me so happy I can’t help but smile. Then there are others which have moved me to tears; the story or the situation or even the writing itself is so emotional I can’t help but cry at the saddest parts. So for this week’s theme I didn’t pick books that made me laugh, instead I picked five that I couldn’t help smiling through, and five that moved me to tears.
