Top Ten Tuesday: Books to be Thankful for! #TTT

icon4-ttt

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish (click the link to visit them) who pick a different topic each week.

This week the topic is: Thanksgiving Freebie – I’m going for 10 Books I’m thankful for…

    thanks1

  1.  The Chronicles of Narnia: I will always be thankful for this series; it has inspired me my whole life!
  2.  Twilight: As much as this book started a whole trend of bad teen vampire fiction, it also put YA on the map, and I don’t think the young adult genre would be the same without it.
  3. Harry Potter: I’ve never read them, but even I know that people’s (adults) opinions on ‘kids’ books would not be as favourable as they are today without Rowling’s series.
  4. A Million Little Pieces: I think this is the book I’ve read the most. It taught me that beautiful things can come out of suffering, and that people can overcome anything with hope and determination.
  5.  Slaughterhouse 5: I think everyone should read this anti-war book, which is completely batshit and poignant all at the same time.

  7. The End of Mr. Y: This book introduced me to one of my favourite British authors.
  8. Interview with a Vampire: I’m glad this book exists for the sole purpose of reminding me how vampire should be!
  9.  The Hunger Games: I’m thankful for these books mainly because they’ve given me so much fangirling/ranting material.
  10. The Time Traveller’s Wife: This book reminded me that literary fiction can be amazing, and that I shouldn’t just read YA all the time!
  11.  Burial Rites: Same as above!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends! 🙂
