Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week we’re discussing bookish things to be thankful for, specifically authors and books. Holy wow, where do I begin?
2. Charlotte Bronte- Ditto. And also for creating such a wonderful tortured hero. Mr. Rochester may have been my first real literary crush simply because he was so very imperfect. Clearly I’m not the only one who feels this way.
3. Meg Cabot- Because she makes reading fun! And because she created Michael Moscovitz, quite possibly the swooniest guy ever! Also, her books make me feel like she gets me.
6. Sara Zarr- For writing such sweet, somewhat melancholy stories, especially Once Was Lost and How To Save a Life, books where she manages to put in the difficulty and the honesty that comes from living a life of faith.
7.The Twilight Saga and The Hunger Games trilogy- For opening up a whole new world of YA and expanding its horizon ( I mean, some of us were already YA people, but others discovered this genre because of those books). I’m all for anything that helps to broaden the base of YA and get it the attention it deserves. For too long women have been ashamed to read it (or they steal it from their kids)!
10. For The Time Traveler’s Wife– The book that always makes me fall in love with love over and over again. And, let’s face it, it has serious sexytimes with a hot librarian. Doesn’t get much better than a guy who likes to read.
