Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish, a fabulous book blog that gives weekly prompts to answer and make fun bookish lists
First of all, I would like to apologize for being so splendiferously inconsistent. I have been absolutely crushed with school since August, I’ve barely had time to breathe. I went from 4-6 books a week to … well, 4-6 books total since school started (maybe a little bit more, but not by much). Yeesh. Between my editor position on the school newspaper staff (which takes up a large percentage of my time), my job, school, dance practice and sleeping … blogging has had to take a back seat. I am not a social creature, just a your run-of-the-mill nerdy introvert — how did I get to be so busy???
Anyway, I’ve decided that I really need to step up my blogging game. This is something I really love doing and I miss it terribly. So, be prepared to see a little bit more of me around here, and I’m not just talking about the litany of First Line Friday posts you’ve seen running through here. That got ridiculous.
Top Ten Books I Want My Future Children to Read
The TTT topic for this week was “Top Ten Books I Want My Future Children to Read”, and while that statement is most definitely accurate, I confess to thinking of my niece through the compilation of these books. She’s only five, but there are so many things I want to do with her!! She’s one of six of my nieces and nephews, but she’s probably the one I’m closest to (since the others live far, far away and her brother is just cogitating). But she hasn’t even learned to share or how to play hide-and-go-seek properly (that is, hide in different spots each time, not the same damn cupboard), so it will be awhile.
I say this knowing that my children will likely never want anything to do with anything I love now — my dad has tried to get me to read things from his youth and I will never. My children will probably be just the same dammit, if only to spite me.
That said, these are the ten hallmarks of my reading that I find myself falling back to again and again and again, wanting to reread them and read nothing else. That’s a lie … don’t take away all the new books I just bought!! LIKE SIX OF CROWS I JUST FINISHED AND OOOOMMMGGG I can’t stop obsessing over Inej and Kaz and the crew and I LOVE IT SO MUCH
