Time to party. Top Ten Tuesday is turning 10 today. For a meme to exist this long is pretty amazing. Thank you so much to The Broke and The Bookish for creating it and thank you to Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl for picking up Top Ten Tuesday when The Broke and The Bookish closed.
It is always fun to do Top Ten Tuesday and I love seeing other people’s creativity with the prompts. I also think it is an easy way to jump into the community when you are a newbie. \
So for today I am going to look back at an old prompt I did when the blog did not exist this long just yet. Back in August 2015 I talked about theFairytale Retellings I still wanted to read. We’re going to see if I actually did and then look at my physical and goodreads tbr for 10 other retellings I still want to read.
Have I Read the Books?
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige >> I have actually owned a copy of this for a while but have yet to read it. I’m honestly a bit on the fence.
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh >> I read both this and its sequel since 2015. I enjoyed The Wrath and The Dawn.
Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis >> I am still so drawn to this cover and that it is more of a sci-fi (I mean planet is mentioned in the synopsis). But I’ve heard mixed things so I never did end up purchasing it.
Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell >> I kind of forgot I wanted to read this back then. I have since even removed it from my Goodreads TBR.
Uprooted by Naomi Novik >> I loved this book!
Valiant by Sarah McGuire >> I kind of lost interest in this.
The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani >> I read it but thought it was just okay unfortunately.
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente >> I quite enjoyed this one but haven’t had the chance to read on with the series.
The Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz >> I lost interest.
Through the Woods by Emily Carroll >> I lost interest here again.
Four out of ten. Could be better but my taste has changed a lot over the years.
