Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they come up with a topic and invite whoever wants to add their own list to their own blog.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve no doubt seen the 21 Days of Thankfulness that’s all over Facebook. Honestly, it’s kind of driving me nuts. I’ve never been a fan of saying what I’m thankful for. I used to get irritated at my siblings who always wanted us to go around the dinner table on Thanksgiving and talk about what each of us are thankful for. Mine was always something like “I’m thankful we only have to do this once a year.”
Yeah, I’m THAT girl.
But truthfully, I am thankful, for so many things. Clearly the obvious ones: family, friends, a job, my pets… But also for books and the ability to read. Because if I didn’t have that, I think my life would truly suck.
Today’s Top Ten are the Top Ten books I am thankful for:
Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married – Out of all the books I’ve ever read, this is the one I’m most thankful for. Not only is it my favorite, it helped me during a pretty darker time when I first read it, helping me see some things about myself like no other book has.
Harry Potter – I’m thankful for this series because without it they would have never made 8 awesome movies that helped my sister and I grow closer. We went to see each movie together, spanning a 10 year period, and because of that, we have bonded like we never would have.
Twilight – Two words: Edward Cullen. Ha, I jest. But seriously, I am thankful for this book because this was the book that opened my eyes to YA lit and a world that I never would have gotten into had it not been for a sparkly vampire and his wet blanket love of his life.
The Chronicles of Narnia – No series has so much importance to me as the Narnia books. These were the books that sparked an interest in fantasy for me so many years ago, that made me appreciate my imagination and all the places it could take me.
Alright, so I can’t think of any other books I’m truly thankful for. Maybe I’m just thankful for books as a whole.
And really, if you think about it, there are 7 HP books, 4 Twilight books, 7 Narnia books… so it looks like I’m really thankful for 19 books. Yeah!
Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
