It’s time for another Top 10 Tuesday!!! For those of you who don’t know, Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the folks over at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s Top 10 Tuesday theme revolves around the Top 10 Books That I’m Thankful For! Technically, my Thanksgiving celebrations took place last month because I live in Canada and we’re cool like that. However, I still would love to participate in giving thanks to some of the books I love the most if that’s cool! Here you will find a list of the Top 10 Books that I’m Thankful For! Do we have any similar choices?
All The Bright Places
I am thankful for All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven because I believe that it brings forward the serious topics of depression and suicide in an educational matter. I know a lot of people disagree with me on this topic, but I personally believe that we need more stories like these, especially in the young adult community. It is also the only book that has ever made me tear up while reading.
House of Leaves
I am thankful for House of Leaves basically because it was one of the most amazing, yet complicated, books that I have ever read. I didn’t know what I was getting myself into when I started this monster of a book, but I’m so glad I managed to find a way to the other side.
Ready Player One
This was probably the best book that I read in 2015 and I’m thankful for that. I’m also thankful for my best friend Heather who let me have her duplicate copy of this novel!
Harry Potter Series
I mean who isn’t thankful for this series? It definitely shaped my childhood and my love for reading as I’m sure it has done for many others.
Mosquitoland was the biggest surprise for me during the year of 2015 and I’m definitely thankful for that. I bought it mostly due to the cover (please don’t judge me) and I ended up loving it way more than I thought I would!
More Than This
I am thankful for More Than This because this was the book that introduced me to one of my now favourite authors of all time, Patrick Ness. The story is so unique and interesting and strange and I absolutely loved it!
I am beyond thankful for Unbroken for being the best and last book that I read last year. Unbroken showed me just how much people went through during World War II and taught me plenty of life lessons that I won’t forget any time soon.
A Wrinkle In Time
I am thankful for A Wrinkle in Time for being my favourite childhood book. I read it in elementary school and I did an entire project on it. It remains one of my favourite childhood books of all time.
A Clockwork Orange
I am thankful for A Clockwork Orange for merely being one of my favourite novels. Although the story deals with a lot of dark and heavy themes, I think it also has a pretty important message and that it is one of those books/films that you need to read/watch before you die.
I am thankful for Deadly Class because it is what truly made me start to read and appreciate graphic novels/comics. I had never been a big reader of comics or graphic novels, but I saw this one at a convention and decided to give it ago. It remains to be one of my favourite reads of all time.
