My Ten Favorite Top Ten Topics I've Ever Done

I'm participating in today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's prompt is:

My Ten Favorite Top Ten Topics I've Ever Done

This week's prompt is in honor of the folks at The Broke and the Bookish, who are celebrating five years of hosting this meme.  Congrats, guys!  I've only been participating for a little less than two years, though.  But although I haven't been around as long, there are still some really great topics I've been able to make lists for.  Here are some of my favorites:

I may be a tough critic when it comes to romances, but even I have been known to swoon in the case of these books.

I'm not one to cry easily, but these books about did me in.

I love a great villain.  They are often my favorite characters.

Because talking about Harry Potter is always a good idea.

So many of my "all time favorite" books are books I first read a long time ago.  I liked that this prompt forced me to consider my more recent favorites, and wonder if they might beat out some of my old favorites if they also had the added nostalgia factor.

I am a self-proclaimed curmudgeon when it comes to romance in books.  This post gave me the chance to explain why, as well as giving me the chance to talk about what I do like in a bookish romance.

One common refrain I often hear is that people want more friendship in books.  Happily, I can now point to several books that all feature lovely friendships, should you be in the mood.

I love analyzing a book's cover art.  This prompt let me highlight my favorites and generally gush over some really lovely and often under-appreciated art.

Because everyone needs a good book club book suggestion up their sleeve.

Just looking at this post makes me wish it was my birthday or Christmas soon.  Alas, both events are in December.  And it's June.  Woe to me.


Do you have a favorite prompt?  Is there a prompt you've always wanted to do, but haven't seen come up yet?

  1. I really like your top ten quotes from Harry Potter list too. It was fun to read. I almost chose the villains for my list, I had others I wanted to choose instead.
