Well, enough with that. Onto the Top Ten Tuesday list - this time, with a Thanksgiving/thankful theme!
1. Literary family I'd most like to spend Thanksgiving with
Who wouldn't want to spend a holiday with the Weasleys? It might be a bit odd as they haven't got Thanksgiving in England, or at least not at the same time as ours. The food would be amazing, the company fun, and I seriously doubt I'd ever want to leave.
2. Booktuber I'm most thankful to be friends with
Aria Mia has become one of my best friends ever through Booktube. We can talk about anything and share a lot of the same interests. I'm so glad, every day, to have met her and to have her as a friend.
3. A book I'm thankful for
I'm thankful for The Young Elites because it has a fantastic perspective. It is one of the books that made me start questioning what made a villain and what made a hero.
4. The series I'm most thankful for
Harry Potter has given me more than I could have ever expected from a book over the years. I wish that I could read the series again with fresh eyes, seeing all of my favorite characters and scenes for the first time.
5. Author I'm thankful to have discovered
Not only is Sabaa Tahir an amazing author, but she's incredibly kind to her fans. I once had a question about how to pronounce a characters name and she tweeted me the answer! It might not seem like a big thing, but it meant a lot to me.
6. A series I'm thankful to have finally started
This series got talked about so much on social media that I had to buy the first book. After that it rested on my TBR shelf (ha ha, shelf) for ages before I finally settled down to read it. I am so happy that I did because now I can see what people meant about how great it is. I recently bought the rest of the series and I'm now working up the "courage" to read the rest (it wouldn't do to read them all and agonize over the wait for book 5!).
7. A Booktuber I'm happy to have discovered
Samantha from NovelsandNonsense is one of my favorite Booktubers. She has such a good perspective on a wide variety of genres and I feel like I get a lot of literary exposure through her that I wouldn't get otherwise. Her videos are always wonderful and I love seeing her dogs from time to time.
8. Another series I'm thankful to have started
9. A fictional family I'm thankful for AND I'd want to spend Thanksgiving with
Reading about what Marko and Alana will go through for the sake of family really hits home. A Thanksgiving feast with them would be amazing, memorable, and probably at least a little dangerous.
10. The book I'm most thankful someone recommended to me
I wasn't sure I was going to like this book at first when Aria Mia recommended it to me. I forget what it was, exactly, but it didn't sound like it would pan out all that well.
I. Was. Shocked.
It has turned into one of my favorite books and I am anxiously anticipating the sequel!
