Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they post a new top ten list and invite everyone to share their answers. This week we are looking at my top ten books on my TBR list.
1. The Princess Bride by William Goldman. Last summer my sister practically forced me to watch The Princess Bride, I thought it was okay but not amazing. I decided to pick up the book since it was part of a buy 1 get 1 half price offer in Waterstones.
2. The Letter for the King by Tonke Dragt. I think this is a childrens book. I’ve seen Sanne from BooksandQuills talk about it in a number of her videos and I thought it sounded interesting.
3. The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. I got the audio book of The Way of Kings a few months ago and I’ve been really enjoying it. The only problem is I keep falling asleep half way through a chapter. I ended up deciding it would be faster to just read the book.
4. One Million Lovely Letters by Jodi Ann Bickley. I saw Carrie Hope Fletcher talk about this book on one of her videos and I thought it sounded interesting. Also it was part of a buy 3 for £10 deal on Amazon.
5. Wild: A Journey from Lost to Found by Cheryl Strayed. Again this was part of a buy 3 for £10 deal on Amazon. And I think it has also recently been made into a movie.
6. I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai. Yup! this was also part of a buy 3 for £10 deal on Amazon. I’ve been wanting to read this anyway so £3 was a good deal.
7. The Home Corner by Ruth Thomas. I randomly came across this in a charity shop and thought it sounded interesting. Its set in Scotland and is about a girl who failed her Highers and has to go work in a primary school.
8. Cold: Extreme Adventures at the Lowest Temperatures on Earth by Ranulph Fiennes. Yeah I bought this because it was part of that 3 books for £10 deal too.
9. Alan Turing: The Enigma by Andrew Hodges. I recently watched the movie of this and found the Enigma machine really fascinating. I’ve watched a few YouTube videos about it (this one on Numberphile is really good) but I decided to buy the book that the movie was based on as well.
10. The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan. I pretty much decided to read this because it won the Man Booker Prize.
