Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
How it works:
I assign each Tuesday a topic and then post my top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join me and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.
The books on this week’s list are books I always talk about, so they shouldn’t come as any surprise if you’ve followed my blog for a while. These books are books I’ve read more than once (and in most cases more than twice). They’re the books I pick up when I’m in a slump, or just want to visit a familiar place. Though most of these are fantasy novels, there are a couple of classics on the list that never gets old no matter how many times I read them. At least one of these books gets read every year, and the year that they don’t, Green Eggs and Ham does. LOL, I am an elementary teacher after all! Anyway, these books are my forever books because they hold some memory for me, or fill me with wonder. The writing is superb and always allows me to visualize the story and escape my current circumstances. No matter how much older I get, reading them still feels like the first time.
