MISC: Top Ten Tuesday – 6th June 2017


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they post a different topic that one of their bloggers answers, and they invite others to join in either by posting their answers as a comment or by creating their own blog post.

Where have I been the last two weeks? It seems like all the things I have planned conspire against me and happen all at once. Which isn’t true, because I was in charge of planning them. Anyway, I’ve had a couple of busy weekends, travelling around so my prime blogging time has been limited. But I’m back to it so here we are! I’m kicking it off with a Top Ten Tuesday post. This week’s post in 10 books from one genre that you’ve added to you’ve recently added to your TBR. I’m picking sci-fi & fantasy, because they’re genres I usually dip into, but I keep finding more and more books that are trying to make me part with my money, and I’m finding it hard not to give in!

  1. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is one of my very favorite books of all time. Goofy to the point of insane sometimes, I love the whole series! And although I’ve not read Norse Mythology, Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors.

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday! Thanks!

    1. Goofy sounds perfect to me! I haven’t read any of Neil Gaiman’s work yet. I was going to get American Gods but somehow I ended up with Norse Mythology instead! I can’t wait to read my first one of his books!


      1. Then Douglas Adams is your man! I hope you love Neil Gaiman! I read American Gods back when it came out. I really think I need to read it again. 🙂

  2. Norse Mythology is good, I really liked the conversational writing style and some of the characters I hadn’t heard of before. I really want to read more Neil Gaiman now, perhaps American Gods.

    And after watching Miss Peregrine’s Home… on dvd I really must get around to starting the book.

    Great list!

    1. American Gods was the book I was going to start with, but I saw Neil Gaiman do a reading from Norse Mythology and it caught my interest!

      I still haven’t watched the film from Miss Peregrine. I was going to try and read the book first and that never happened! Hopefully I’ll get round to them both soon.

      Thanks! 😀
