Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
…I declare a thumb war! Heh, just kidding!
Hi all! So, I’ve decided to do the number matching each number prompt rather than the one that just allowed for any book with a number in the title. Ironically, the book I love most out of all of these is the one in the number ten spot rather than the number one. Go figure!
10. The Tenth Kingdom by Kathryn Wesley
I literally own this book because I fell in love with the tv mini-series that was made what probably seems like forever ago now. I loved this series as a kid and as an adult went out and bought the book. The only sad thing about it is that I’ve not actually read it yet. Whoops.
9. Nine by Zach Hines
I have no idea what this one is about. It’s just on my TBR (I imagine at one point I did know what it was about). Anyway, hopefully I’ll pick it up sometime soon?
8. Eight Will Fall by Sarah Harian
I think I did a cover feature for this once upon a time? Either way, there was no question that Eight Will Fall would end up on my TBR after I caught sight of that utterly gorgeous cover. Honestly, I’m kind of sad I don’t already have a copy. It’s a bit more reasonable here, though. Eight Will Fall isn’t even out yet.
7. An Anthropologist on Mars: Seven Paradoxical Stories by Oliver Sacks
This is actually an utterly amazing book that I read for one of my college psychology courses. There are seven different people Sacks talks about throughout the course of the book and it is utterly fascinating, though sometimes sad. I would definitely recommend reading it at some point if you ever get the chance.
6. Six Goodbyes We Never Said by Candace Ganger
I don’t care for the cover of this one if I’m being totally honest. But I do love that title. Other than that, I don’t really know much about this book.
5. Five Feet Apart by Rachel Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry, and Tobias Iaconis
I didn’t like this book as much as I thought I would. That said, I knew of the girl it was loosely based off and I remember being devastated when I found out she’d passed away. All in all, I’m glad she was able to leave a positive mark on the world.
4. Four Three Two One by Courtney Stevens
I dunno what this book is about, but I can say without question that it has a pretty epic cover. Plus, the title itself is oddly catching. Which isn’t something I would have expected from a book literally titled as a countdown from four.
3. Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum
I didn’t love this book. I didn’t hate it, either. It was just…meh. Also, I still can’t get past the bit where one of the main characters literally wears the exact same shirt every single day. It’s supposed to be quirky and poignant, but it really just came across as gross to me. Even with the implied–maybe? I don’t really think the implication came across well–possibility that he washed it…?
2. Love Scene, Take Two by Alex Evansley
I literally had a post dedicated to this book a while back, but I don’t remember much about it. I know it involves a movie and directing? It sounded cute, if I recall correctly. It ended up on my TBR, at least.
1. 1% Free by G. A. Matiasz
This just goes to show that I have far too many books on my TBR, because I don’t remember anything about this one either. But something about it sparked my interest enough for me to add it, so…?
Getting the correct number for each of these was actually harder than I thought it’d be.
