Top Ten Tuesday can be an original feature/every week meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are especially fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d like to share our lists with other bookish folks and would like to see your top ten lists! Every week we will post a new TOP list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to become listed on. All we ask is that you web page link back again to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists!
If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It’s a fun way to access know your fellow bloggers. 10 is just a suggestion to aim for if you can hit it — do a list of 3 or 5 or 20 on your list.
Your post, your decision! Today’s Topic: FREEBIE — that super specific list you want to make? All yours to tackle this week! 12 months up to now D I hope everyone scanning this has had a great! 1. Adulthood is a Myth by Sarah Andersen. I first became aware of Sarah Andersen after viewing a few of her “Sarah’s Scribbles” illustrations going swimming on Pinterest.
- Spice Lip Pencil
- Drinking coffee or alcohol
- UNDERARM AND BIKINI AREA WHITENING
- Some neighborhoods are very popular on Google Plus
This book is a compilation of many of Andersen’s drawings and I’m a huge fan. I find her drawings to be so relatable and funny! 2. As YOU WANT: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of ‘The Princess Bride’ by Cary Elwes and Joe Layden. The Princess Bride is one of my favorite films ever (it could easily make my top 10 10) which book is a delightful memoir from its lead actor Cary Elwes about the making of this film.
The most it is told from Elwes’s perspective but you may still find plenty of asides from many other cast and crew members. If you’re an enthusiast of The Princess Bride then I’d say that the book is a total must-read as it’s filled with funny and interesting tales and its tone is completely affectionate and positive.
I’d especially recommend the audiobook version of this publication as well as it’s read by the majority of the cast and you will get to listen to Elwes’s excellent impressions! 3. Chaos Walking by Patrick Ness. Since I liked Patrick Ness’s A Monster Calls a lot (which you’ll want to also find on this list) I decided to read his YA dystopian series Chaos Walking for a blog event called the Sci-Fi Month.
And now I’d even say that the series has surpassed The Hunger Games as the most impressive YA dystopia that I’ve yet read. Although this series is rather violent and difficult to complete in places, its idea is so unique, its heroes and world are so well-developed, and its own styles are so wealthy and thought-provoking.
4. The Court of Roses and Thorns Saga by Sarah J. Maas. This past year I finally got around to reading the hugely popular YA high-fantasy author Sarah J. Maas and I was quite definitely impressed by her ACOTOR series! Not merely was the grade of the writing much better than I was expecting – I found the prose unexpectedly lush and atmospheric – it’s a very imaginative and fun series. The books are occurring a super-interesting world ruled over by various fairy courts and are filled up with adventure, political intrigue, and intimate tension. And a large reward point is that its covers are beautiful!
I can’t wait to read the 3rd reserve in the series which is due out later this season and also to eventually get yourself started Maas’s Throne of Glass series! 5. East O’ the Moon, West O’ the Moon by Naomi Lewis. This book is a middle-grade picture publication and it is a faithful retelling of a lovely Norwegian fairy tale called East of sunlight, West of the Moon. This written book would make for a perfect Christmas/Winter read and I loved it very much.
