Top Ten Favourite Top Ten Tuesday Topics17:46
It’s Tuesday again, and that means another edition of Top Ten Tuesday, the awesome link-up where bloggers get to share their favourite things. Today is special, because it’s the 5th anniversary of Top Ten Tuesday. Hooray! In honour of this momentous occasion, this week we’re sharing our top ten favourite Top Ten Tuesday topics ever. I’ve been participating in Top Ten Tuesday for over a year now, and there have been some amazingly fun topics in that period of time. Here are some of my absolute favourites. All post titles are linked to the corresponding posts.
Books are amazing, and so is a well done book to move adaptation. This is one of the most recent topics, and it was so much fun to imagine what books would look like if they were turned in movies or TV shows. It was even better to see which books everyone wanted adaptions for. Cinder and The Raven Boys were particularly popular. Hopefully we’ll great movie adaptations of them in the future.
I have some very strong views on what I like and dislike when it comes to romance in my books (trust and respect, yes, love triangles, no). It was great to have a chance to share some of these opinions with you guys. Turns out my readers had some interesting opinions of their own, and we had some great conversations in the comments.
We all know some characters that we would love to spend time with. If I went to school and had a lunch table, I know just who I would ask to sit with me. It’s funny, but pretty much all of the characters I chose were picked for their awesome senses of humour. What does that say about me?
I’ve always found that the best way to discover new books is to see what other people are recommending. This prompt encouraged me to list a few of the books that interested me after seeing people’s recommendations. Doesn’t mean I’ve read them yet, but at least I have a list for future reading, right?
You may have noticed by now that I am a huge fan of fantasy. There are just so many great fantasy books out there waiting to be read and loved. Thanks to this awesome topic, I got a chance to share a list of some of the awesome fantasy books that I think everyone should try at least once.
Everyone knows at least one character who has amazing survival skills and could live a year I the wild armed with nothing but a toothpick and three jellybeans, I’m sure. This list sums up most of the characters I’d take with me if I ever had to go into a survival situation. One of them may or may not have been my own character. I apologise for nothing.
I love movies, almost as much as I love books. There are some many awesome stories to be told in so many different ways. This topic let me share a few of my movies, which range greatly in genre, from animated movies, to action, and even a romance or two in there somewhere.
I’m sure we’ve all got our own blogging quirks and bad habits. In this topic, I had to share some of my worst confessions. If I’m very honest, I must confess I haven’t really learnt from my past mistakes. I’ve just developed a whole new list of confessions to replace the old ones. Maybe we should revisit this topic in the future so I can confess some more terrible blogging crimes.
I love books from all time periods. Some of my favourites happen to be classic novels, like Jane Austen’s. It’s not often that I get to share my love for the classics, so it was great to be able to share ten of my favourites, especially the ones that a lot of people hadn’t read before, like the novels of Wilke Collins.
As you may know, I am a huge fan of rewritten fairytales. I read them, I write them, and I share them with my friends and family. A year ago I’d read enough to make choosing just ten for the list difficult. I have no idea how I would ever cut my favourite rewritten fairytale list down to a mere ten.
These are some of my favourite topics we’ve covered since I joined this awesome link up. What are some of yours? What’s your favourite topic from my list here? What’s a topic you would love to see (or see again) in the future?
