Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. 

Hey, book meme world. It’s nice to finally meet you.

1. Asking For It – Louise O’Neill


I haven’t read her previous work, but as a YA writer with a focus on feminist issues, she seems like my kind of woman. I am always for a writer working on feminist awakenings in teenage girls. My own was pretty much entirely down to the Sociology classes I took in high school. My teacher was a shameless feminist and taught much of the topic through that lense. It was awesome.

2. Six of Crows – Leigh Bardugo


I read the first two books of the Grisha series during the first weekend I ever spent totally alone in a house. Both of my housemates had gone away and I spent almost the entire time reading. It was great, and I have wanted to live alone ever since. Sadly, I will likely not be able to afford it for many years to come.

3. Everything Everything – Nicola Yoon


I read about this books months ago. Through a combination of living in the UK, where everything comes out last and struggles with my adult life, I still haven’t read it yet. (I swear the amount of time in a day shrinks when you hit twenty-one).

4. Why Not Me? – Mindy Kaling


Fantasy best friend. Enough said.

5. Let The Games Begin – Niccolo Ammaniti


This is a super weird looking book I picked up for free at my summer job. I worked at a book festival. One time when I went by the office they were just like ‘Please, have a free book.’ Yes. This job was the best thing ever.

6. Dracula – Bram Stoker


I am determined not to let being finished with university be an excuse to stop reading widely. As much as I love YA, there are classic reads that I am likely to enjoy just as much! I picked up this book when I was on holiday in Yorkshire, and we went to Whitby, the cute seaside town that was the totally unlikely inspiration for this book.

7. George – Alex Gino


This novel is about a transgender girl who wants to play Charlotte in the production of Charlotte’s Web her school is putting on. Her teacher won’t let her audition because she’s a boy. So George and her friend Kelly come up with a plan…

8. Modern Romance – Aziz Ansari


I just love him so much.

9. The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change – Stephen R. Covey


Who doesn’t want to be more effective?

10. Carry On – Rainbow Rowell


I’ve been fantasising about Baz since Fangirl.

Author: Lydia Tewkesbury

27. Loves a good story.

  1. Everything, Everything and Why Not Me are on my list too! I listened to the audiobook version of Modern Romance a few month ago and I really enjoyed it. He’s so funny and has a lot of really good insight into modern dating.

    I also hadn’t heard of Asking for It until I saw it on your list just now, and I’m adding it to the top of my TBR. There’s not a single review under four stars on the GR page!


    1. Yay! I hope you enjoy it. I can’t wait to read it.

      I’m glad you liked Modern Romance. I love Aziz Ansari. He is so funny. And clever! Also I really admire a guy who wants to talk about feminism. I have watched his comedy specials on Netflix many times.

      Liked by 1 person

  2. Everything Everything was really good! I hope you enjoy it. I picked up Only Ever Yours by Louise O’Neill so hopefully I can get to it soon and maybe pick up Asking For It as well.

    I’ve seen so many people talk about Modern Romance recently and now I really want to give it a go.


  3. I hope you enjoy Everything, Everything! I am very curious about Six of Crows as well despite not being a huge fan of The Grisha series, mainly because the cover and the book looks bloody beautiful! George also sounds very fascinating and like it will open up an important discussion.
