Top Ten Tuesday: Looking Back on Five Years of TTT

A weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

HAPPY 5th BIRTHDAY TOP TEN TUESDAY! When I first decided to start blogging more seriously I was looking for some other book blogs and I of course came across The Broke and the Bookish. Top Ten Tuesday was my first ever meme and the first time I felt like part of this community.

1.) Top Ten Unusual Character Names 
This was my first ever TTT and I also think it was really fun. It was one of the first times I heard about the Throne of Glass series too. I'd kind of like to revisit it because I have some crazy new names that need to be on this list.

2.) Top Ten Fantasy Worlds I Wouldn't Want to Live In (and others about fantasy worlds)
I included maps in this one and that got me very excited. Plus I seriously would not want to visit many fantasy worlds and I really like seeing everyone's answers.

3.) Top Ten Characters Who Deserve Their Own Books
I love secondary characters and there are some that I would love nothing more than to see a book from their perspective. Aint nobody got time for a Christian Grey book but one about The Marauders, yes please.

4.) Top Ten Cover Trends I Love
I know you're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover but sometimes a girl can't help herself. I loved being able to talk about all the pretties and look at all the pretties and admire all the pretties.

5.) Top Ten Fantasy Books I'm Suprised I Haven't Read
I was really nervous about this one. There is so many great and classic fantasy that I haven't read but want to read. I did however love this topic because I found out I'm not alone in the fact that I haven't read a lot of these books.

6.) Top Ten Bookish Confessions
This spurred a discussion video, back when I was still trying the BookTube thing where I mentioned why I like spoilers. It was a fun post to write and a fun video to make

7.) Top Ten Things About Romance I Like/Don't Like aka Thoughts On Romance
I'm the kind of person who doesn't need romance in their books. In fact I've even had some books ruined for me because I didn't like the romance that much. This prompt gave me he opportunity to vent a little bit.

Any time there is a freebie I basically use it to talk about one of my favorite things, the Heroes Journey. I really enjoy talking about reluctant heroes and characters with redemptive arcs so I love freebies.

This was fun because it made me think about all the characters that I would relate to and all the characters I would want to be friends with in real life. Another one I wish I could revisit too.

Speaking of revisiting. I seriously loved this category and thinking about all my favorite books as a kid that I want to reread. And after reading an amazing retelling of Anne of Green Gables I have to add that to the list.
