Top ten tuesday – books that I refuse to let anyone touch

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. What are the top ten books that I refuse to let anyone touch ? Oh. Um. All of them. I don’t really let other people touch my books – so, instead of the 10 books I don’t let anyone touch, here’s a list of 10 things that make me wary of ever letting anyone other than me touch my precious books : That time I borrowed a book from the library from a friend, who ended up keeping it for months, getting library fees, and letting me bring it back on my own (and pay the fees!) without even reading it. That time I gave a book I borrowed from the library to a friend, who read it, then instagrammed it with a comment about how nice it …

Some that I’ve read and watched : The Chronicles of Narnia series – I love the books, and I remember that when the movies came out it was such a huge thing for me ! (It also made me want to actually try Turkish delight. And I hated it. Totally not worth betraying your family over. 0/10 would not recommend). The martian : I watched the movie first, absolutely loved it, and then thought “the book is probably even better, let’s give it a chance !” and I was not disappointed.

Top Ten Tuesday – Rainy day reads

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. I don’t have a lot of ideas for this top ten, but I’ll do my best. (It’s actually been raining for a few days in my city now, so, technically, all the books I read since Wednesday are rainy day reads !) 1 . The magician’s nephew, by C.S. Lewis 2 . The horse and his boy, by C.S. Lewis – Okay, I know that’s kind of cheating, two books of the same series, but hear me out : I’m not putting the entire chronicles of Narnia here, because some of those books bring me more comfort than others, and, for me, the definition of a “rainy day book” is a book that is guaranteed to lift your spirits on a rainy day, when you’re staying in bed …
