Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Since the lovely ladies at The Broke and The Bookish have given us a Freebie topic for this week's Top 10 Tuesday post due to the holidays so we're free to choose our own topic! My Top 10 Tuesday list is:
Top 10 Books I wish Mr. Turning the Pages would read:
If you aren't familiar with who Mr. Turning the Pages is he's my better half, number one fan and the man behind the giveaways you see on the blog. He's kinda awesome like that but he even admits he needs to read more so these are the Top 10 I wish he'd read in 2013!
On a side not, I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!
The ENTIRE Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling! This is by far my favourite series and I think everyone needs to read it.
I absolutely love this book and I wish he would read the whole series with me. The first 5 books would be re-reads for me but #6 would be one I'd be reading for the first time.
Jules Verne's The Mysterious Island I still remember the day Mr. Turning the Pages bought this one for me, we had just started dating and he was learning just how much of a bookworm I am. This is one of my favourites and I think it'd be a nice adventurous read to get him into the classics.
Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth had to be on this list. This book is one of my yearly re-reads and I love it more and more each time. Mr. Turning the Pages and I love the 1959 film version of this book and I think it's high time he reads the story behind the movie.
Another of the books that Mr. Turning the Pages bought me early on in our relationship and it is my favourite non-fiction book. I'm not big into non-fiction but I'm getting into it more and more. This book was by far one of the most inspirational books I've ever read if not the number one inspirational book that I've ever read. I have a great respect for Nelson Mandela and I hope one day Mr. Turning the Pages gives this one a try.
I read this one last year and loved it. It was a great mixture of historical fiction and horror. I'm the history buff and Mr. Turning the Pages loves horror novels so I think this one would appeal to him a lot. It's almost 1,000 pages long but I think he could finish it sooner than he thinks he could.
This book took me completely by surprise! I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was and since Mr. Turning the Pages enjoys dinosaurs and books that are like the Indiana Jones movies and this is like a mixture of the two. I loved it and know he would to.
I read this one in January of this year and since both Mr. Turning the Pages and I like Big Foot I think this would be the perfect read for him.
I know, I know this is more of the sort of book a woman would enjoy but it's one of my favourites and I wish he would give it a try.
This book was HILARIOUS! Mr. Turning the Pages read a bit of this when I borrowed it a few years ago and thought it was a hoot. Hopefullty he get's a chance to pick this one up again soon.
Well, that's my Top 10 Tuesday list of the week! What's yours?
