Top 10 Tuesday: Books That Deserve More Love

Welcome to another week of Top 10 Tuesday! Check out my latest post to see my take on this week’s prompt!

Top 10 Tuesday: Book Titles That Are Complete Sentences

Welcome to Top 10 Tuesday! This is a weekly challenge hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s challenge is about book titles that are complete sentences!

I had so much fun with this prompt! I love a witty book title. Some of these might be pushing it in terms of being complete sentences, but I was aiming to make sure it at least had a verb! I feel like verbs aren’t as common in book titles. Without further ado, here are my top ten books with titles that are complete sentences! (*Also, if you click on the photos you’ll find links to the Goodreads synopses of all these books!)

Top 10 Tuesday: Books for Every Color of the Rainbow (and Then Some!)

Welcome to Top 10 Tuesday! This is a weekly challenge hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s challenge is about books for every color of the rainbow!

Originally, this post was supposed to be about book titles that sound like they could be Crayola crayon colors, but I really couldn’t come up with anything for that! So instead, I decided to make a virtual rainbow out of book covers! Unfortunately, there are fewer than ten colors in the rainbow, but that just means I got to add in some extra ones! I definitely had to recite ROYGBIV in my head many times while coming up with this list in order to remember the colors and their order in the rainbow (does anyone else do this??). Also, most of these are books I’ve read and enjoyed, but a few of them are on my TBR! However, something they all have in common is that they all have stunning covers! Without further ado, here is my rainbow of books!

Top 5 Saturday: Books with Diverse Characters

Welcome to Top 5 Saturday! This is a weekly challenge hosted by Devouring Books, and this week’s challenge focuses on books with diverse characters.

It was really hard to narrow it down for this one! I love reading books with a diverse cast of characters, and I’m especially particular about this when choosing books to use in my classroom. Therefore, this is going to be kind of an eclectic list of books! I tried to include a broad selection of books that ranges from middle grade, to young adult, to contemporary fiction. Without further ado, here are my top five books with diverse characters (in no particular order)…

Top 10 Tuesday: Characters Whose Jobs I Wish I Had

Welcome to Top 10 Tuesday! This is a weekly challenge hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s challenge is about characters whose jobs I wish I had!

This was another hard one for me! I don’t know why I’ve been struggling so much with these lately. For this one, I read a lot of children’s and young adult books, and frequently the adults in these books are teachers since school is such an important part of adolescence. However, I can’t pick those because I already am a teacher! For this one, I decided to be pretty flexible with the prompt. I don’t have the skills to do the majority of these jobs, but if there is any aspect of the job that I like then I decided to include it in this list. With that being said, here are my top ten (in no particular order)!

Te amo, Je t’aime, I Love You… (Top 10 Tuesday)

Welcome to Top 10 Tuesday! This is a weekly challenge hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s challenge is a Valentine’s Day/Love freebie!

I really enjoyed this one! I tried to approach it not just from a romantic perspective, but in a way that includes many different types of love. Mother-daughter love, sisterly love, the special love between a dog and its owner, love of a place or activity, and more! There are many different kinds of love, something which many languages other than English do a better job of differentiating linguistically. English only has one word: love. You can say you love your mom and that you love chocolate and we can use context to determine which kind of love we mean. But in Spanish, there are entirely different verbs to represent these two kinds of love. So interesting! I love to geek out over Spanish grammar, but I’ll stop (for now). Instead, let’s check out my top ten choices for books with a love motif!

Top 10 Tuesday: Books Written Before I Was Born

Welcome to Top 10 Tuesday! This is a weekly challenge hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s challenge is about books written before I was born.

I had so much fun with this one! Many of my favorite books were written long before I was born. I also frequently read books that aren’t recent releases because I tend to feel like I’ve missed out on books published either when I was too young to enjoy them or before I existed at all. Therefore, I had a lot of options to choose from! Here is my top ten (in no particular order)!
