TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Hello sweeties. Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is: My Ten Favorite Top Ten Topics From The Past 5 Years. I've been incredibly excited to do this particular topic for weeks so cheers to it finally being here! I ended up listing 5 lists that I've done, and 5 that I haven't. In the end I added the book/character etc. that would be #1 on my list or that had been #1 on my list. Also, I've linked in the lists I've done before.
Top 5 Lists I Haven't Done
5. Top Ten Fictional BFFs ~ Gansey-Adam-Noah-Ronan-Blue from Raven Cycle series
They argue, they say hurtful things, they lie a lot, so how come I chose them from all the awesome fictional BFFs or group of friends I've read about? Because they're the realest thing I've ever seen. All these imperfections, and their way of dealing with them, are the very things that make what they have even more valuable in my eyes. They're five totally different people who became friends despite the odds and who continue loving each other through arguments and disappointments.
4. Top Ten Worlds I'd Never Want To Live In ~ World of The 5th Wave
I really didn't like this book but I have to admit that the world building wasn't bad (meanwhile the characters). Anyways, if I hadn't died in the infection I'd have been soon killed anyway, most likely in a horrible way. (On second thought, Caddie* is the dumbest character I've ever read about so if she survived, nothing is impossible.)
3. Top Ten Ending That Left Me With My Mouth Hanging Open ~ Dangerous Girls
I could list so many for this topic but I'll always get back to Dangerous Girls. The ending, guys, it was such a mindfuck. So freaking surprising and just left me with my mouth hanging open.
2. Ten Book Covers I Wish I Could Redesign ~ VA and Bloodlines
Oh yes, I've just cheated but who cares when these are from the same author? Anyways, I just can imagine that anyone would want to show off either of these covers. I'll never understand why they haven't been properly redesigned.
1. Top Ten Books I Wish I've Read As A Kid ~ A Monster Calls
Again, tons I could list, including super-hyped books, such as Harry Potter, but I'll go with A Monster Calls. It's kind of a short book but it's very emotional and meaningful. If you have a kid you should definitely sit him down and make him read it.
* The name is Cassie. This book leaved such a huge impression on me that I've already forgotten about the names haha.
Top 5 Lists I've Done
5. Top Ten Underrated Books ~ Torn by Cat Clarke
Cat Clarke is a wonderfully talented writer who deserves a lot more attention that she currently gets. Her novels are crazily enjoyable. She creates an atmosphere that won't let you stop thinking about the book even after you've longer finished reading them. Queen of unclosed endings here.
4. Top Ten Characters You Wish Would Get Their Own Book ~ Marcus from the Bloodlines series
I was rooting for Marcus's book like crazy ever since getting to know him. Alright, maybe it was a bit because I started to ship him with Sydney's older sister and I needed to see them together. Imagine my disappointment when in The Ruby Circle we barely got a glimpse of what his life was like. Ugh, the last book was a disappointment for more than one reason.
3. Top Ten Books I'll Probably Never Read ~ Any book by Kathleen Hale
No explanation needed.
All the guys on this list are pretty freaking horrible so I didn't even put them in order when I first made the list. Now I gave Jack the trophy of the worst boyfriend because, next to loads of horrible stuff, he cheated and I can't forgive that.
1. Top Ten Characters I'd Take With Me On a Deserted Island ~ Adrian Ivashkov
I don't think I have to justify this choice for anyone who loves Bloodlines. Even if he turns out to be as annoying as in the last two books at least there'll be someone more useless there than me.
I'm dying to read your lists so do share them with me in the comments. Do we have a common favorite topic?
