Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and it is now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Books That You’d Mash Together, but I couldn’t think of any. I like to keep my bookish worlds separate and I can’t imagine combining any of them. So instead I did the opposite of last week’s post, which was Popular Books That Lived up to the Hype. This week I made a list of Popular Books That Didn’t Live up to the Hype. This doesn’t mean that the books aren’t good. I was just disappointed in them, but lots of other people love these books. Here’s my list:
I remember when I first read this book with my dad when I was 7 years old. We both had to guess how to pronounce some of the names, like Hermione, but now this book is a huge part of my life.
My mom and I first read this book when I was about 6, and we laughed so hard! I still laugh when I think of this book!
My publishing teacher read this book to my class a couple of years ago and it was amazing! She did the best voice for the pigeon! Now, whenever I see one of these books in a bookstore, I have to read it, and I can hear her voice.
I read this whole book on the plane ride from Miami to Toronto a couple of years ago. I flew through it! (Pun intended 😉)
This book makes it onto a lot of my top ten lists because I love it so much! It is the first series that I remember having to go out every weekend to buy the next book as soon as I finished the one I was reading. I absolutely love this series (I even named one of my teddy bears Jesse after Jesse Da Silva, and for years my mom thought that he was named after Jesse McCartney! Haha!).
This was one of the first books I read with serious themes, because all of the main characters have attempted suicide. I can still remember the way my mouth dropped open when I read the twist at the end. You should definitely check it out if you haven’t read it.
This is a great summer book! I read it the summer I went to Cancun when I was 12 years old. It’s the perfect beach read!
These books are so good! I laughed so hard at this book, and all the others in the series. I remember learning so much from the glossary, because I didn’t know many British terms when I first read the book. I highly recommend these books for a good laugh.
My friend discovered this book when it first came out, when we were in middle school. I got it for my birthday and we became obsessed with it. This was years before the movie was even talked about. I feel like the it was ruined by all the hype, but we had a few years to enjoy it.
I bought this book in London a couple of years ago, before it was released in Canada. I loved it!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and it is now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Favourite Short Stories/Novellas. For this list, I revisited the short stories and collections I read in university, so some of them are pretty heavy. Here’s my list:
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and it is now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Best Books I’ve Read in 2018 (so far). For this list, I only included books that were published in 2018. Here’s my list:
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and it is now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Books with Red, White, and Blue Covers, in honour of Independence Day in the U.S. However, it was Canada Day this weekend, so I am going to celebrate my country by sharing a list of Books by Canadian Authors. For this list, I chose books that you may not know are written by Canadian authors (so no Margaret Atwood books, since she’s a very well known Canadian author). Here’s my list:
