"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish".
It is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.
Top Ten Tuesday Turns 10!
Option 1: pick a past TTT topic you’ve done and re-do/update it (Perhaps you’d remove certain books you put on the list back when you first wrote it, or perhaps you have 10 MORE books you’d add to that list now. You could also re-visit TBR posts, whether seasonal or series you need to finish, etc., and tell us if you’ve read them yet or not. Any variation of this idea works. Feel free to be creative.)
Option 2: pick a past TTT topic you wish you’d done, but didn’t get a chance to do (the list of topics is below).
Characters You Would Want As Family Members
This Tuesday, TTT turns 10 and we get to choose one topic, either one we've done before or one we've missed.
I've chosen one that I missed and made it a special girls' topic. I have three younger brothers and two sons, so besides my mother, there was never a special woman in my family. As a child, I always wished for a sister and somehow, I still do. So, I've been thinking what kind of sister I would have liked. There are many different types of women in these books but they all have one thing in common, they are all extremely strong and can get through any troubles. That's certainly a great trait you'd wish for a sister to have.
