"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 Jana from 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.
This week's topic is Memorable Things Characters Have Said (quotes from book characters that have stuck with you)
How do we get to know what characters have said? Right, by reading. So, I have chosen twelve books (still TTT) with covers of readers.
Filipović, Zlata "Zlata's Diary: A Child's Life in Wartime Sarajevo" (BOS: Zlatin dnevnik: otroštvo v obleganem Sarajevu) - 1993
Heidenreich, Elke "Words from 30 Years" (GE: Wörter aus 30 Jahren) - 2003
Kaminer, Wladimir "The Lost Summer. Germany Smokes on the Balcony" (GE: Der verlorene Sommer. Deutschland raucht auf dem Balkon) - 2021
Mortenson, Greg (with David Oliver Relin) "Three Cups of Tea" - 2006
Rowlatt, Bee & Witwit, May "Talking About Jane Austen in Baghdad. The True Story of an Unlikely Friendship" - 2010
Seierstad, Åsne "The Bookseller of Kabul" (NO:. Bokhandleren i Kabul) - 2003
Taylor, Helen "Why Women Read Fiction. The Stories of Our Lives" - 2019
As you can see, they are either not written in English or written about non-English people. That wasn't my intention and I wonder whether it means something.
I hope to have inspired one or the other of you to read one of these books. Orhan Pamuk and Carlos Ruiz Zafón are some of my favourite authors.
