Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This weeks topic is Purple, Yellow, and/or Green Book Covers (in honor of Mardis Gras, which is today!).
1. Matilda by Roald Dahl – my number one absolute favourite world (probably along with a large proportion of the bookish community). I grew up with this book and it’ll always have a place in my heart.
2. It Only Happens in the Movies by Holly Bourne – this book has been sat on my shelves for faaar too long unread. Hope to get to it soon (she says!).
3. Girls in Love by Jacqueline Wilson – Jacqueline Wilson was another firm childhood favourite of mine and I still own loads of her books. Great for an escape or to pull me out of a reading slump/hangover.
4. Play Dead by Harlan Coben – I own and have read a few Harlan Coben books but not this one… yet! It does however sound excellent and I can’t wait to read it eventually.
5. Nothing to Lose by Lee Child – again, I own most of Lee Child’s books but haven’t got round to reading this particular one yet.
6. My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult – I loved this horrendously emotional but very gripping story. Loved the compelling multiple points of view, written very well.
7. The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley – another one I am yet to read. I read ‘The Guest List’ and really enjoyed it, so have equal high hopes for this one.
8. House Rules by Jodi Picoult – yet another unread. One that I’ve heard mixed messages on, so would be interested to hear your thoughts if you’ve read this one.
9. Pictures of Lily by Paige Toon – another book from my TBR. Heard good things about it, so hopefully when I get round to it.
10. Why Mummy Drinks by Gill Sims – surprise surprise, another one I haven’t read yet. I’ve heard mixed things about this series, so I am interested to see what I make of it!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my Top Ten Tuesday, drop me a comment and let me know if you’ve read any of these books!
