Top Ten Tuesday: Book Titles That Give Me Crayola Crayon Vibes

I haven’t participated in TTT in a LONG time, and I thought this prompt was super cute and creative. I had a lot of fun completing this list. I’m excited to see what other bloggers say. I’m sure there are tons of titles that could work. I couldn’t even narrow it down to 10, so I stopped at 15.

Rules:

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.

How it works:

I assign each Tuesday a topic and then post my top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join me and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.


I didn’t look up to see if any of these were already names for Crayola crayons or close to it. Some of these pretty much say which color they should be, but I’ll let you think about what the other ones would look like. If you want, you can leave your thoughts / guesses in the comments. I think that would be fun!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’m Thankful For

Rules for Top Ten Tuesday:

Every Tuesday there is a new topic that you will find over at That Artsy Reader Girl.

The goal is to give your top ten answers, but you can give as many as you want. Put a twist on the topic to make it work for you!

Most importantly, make sure you link to the host (That Artsy Reader Girl ↑).

  1. Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng: One of the first adult contemporaries I’ve ever read. I started off 2018 with a bang, and I bought two copies of it. One is signed—not to brag or anything (lol).

2. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho: I actually listened to this on audio when I started my first job in Kentucky. I listened to it three times in one day. It was so comforting that I asked for the physical copy for my birthday. My sister bought me the pretty cover, which I have since tabbed to pieces.

3. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien: Do I have to explain why I’m thankful for this?

4. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling: I was nervous to read this because of the hype. When I made my decision to give it five stars, I almost couldn’t believe it. It truly is a good book.

5. The Weight of Ink by Rachel Kadish: This is just the best book I have ever read. It’s a commitment, but it’s so worth the read. I would love to reread it at some point in the future.

6. Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas: Started my love for romance novels. I had read The Kiss Quotient and told myself I’d never read another. Penelope Douglas knows how to write romance.

7.The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman: This was different compared to anything else I have ever read. I would love to pick this one back up before the next installment of The Book of Dust comes out.

8. An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin: I only picked this up because it was written by Steve Martin. He truly is a renaissance man in every sense of the term.

9. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid: I had stumbled upon this one on Goodreads. I read one review of it, and I took a chance it. I was still reading a lot of young adult books at this time, but I realized that wasn’t the age range I wanted to read.

10. This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger: This was just a rollercoaster of emotions. I was hesitant in the beginning, but Krueger changed my mind immediately!

Top Ten Tuesday: Changes in My Reading Life

1. The biggest change is that I don’t really read YA anymore (I’m not saying there is anything wrong with it, it’s just not my cup of tea). When I first started reading on a daily basis, I thought I would only be able to comprehend YA. Now my comprehension struggle is with literary fiction and some SF/F.
2. I have an e-reader now, so e-books are a thing. The big reason I started reading e-books is because I started using NetGalley. It’s such an awesome website, and I am very thankful that it exists!
3. I fell in love with historical fiction. I used to think it was a boring genre that nobody wanted to read.
4. I have started to create TBRs each month. This is a recent change in my reading life.
5. I would never buy books, and now I have two big bookshelves almost full.
6. I read multiple books at once. It’s quite difficult for me to only focus on one book at a time. Life is too short to only read one book lol.
7. I listen to audio books A LOT now.
8. I buddy read sometimes.
9. I do read a little bit faster.
10. I participate in the Goodreads Reading Challenge every year.
