Top Ten Tuesday is the brainchild of The Broke & the Bookish. Every Tuesday, we compile a list of our literary Top 10, and then add it to the blog hop.

This week is all about the Top 10 Books That Would Be On My Syllabus If I Taught German Literature 101.

Children’s Books / YA:

General Fiction:

The Classics:

I’m limited to 10 books on this list, but these are only examples. I’d probably recommend reading at least one other book by these authors.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 Authors I’d Buy No Matter What

Top Ten Tuesday is the brainchild of The Broke & the Bookish. Every Tuesday, we compile a list of our literary Top 10, and then add it to the blog hop.

This week is all about the Top 10 Authors We’d Buy No Matter What.

1.) Bill Bryson
Witty travel writing? Yes, please!

2.) Kathy Reichs
I’m definitely a fan of Temperance Brennan

3.) J.K. Rowling
Do I even need to explain this one?

4.) Dan Brown
I do love me a good conspiracy, and Robert Langdon.

5.) Mark Gatiss
Whether it’s original work, Doctor Who or something else. I love his humour!

6.) Neil Gaiman
How do I even start to describe how awesome his writing is?

And a few dearly departed authors I’ve collected or I’m still trying to collect:

7.) J.R.R. Tolkien
His books were my introduction to fantasy. Middle-Earth is my home.

8.) Douglas Adams
Is there anyone more British in this universe than Arthur Dent?

9.) Terry Pratchett
I’ve read most of his books at the library, but now I’m slowly buying them

10.) Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Someone who is sure that writing Sherlock Holmes was his biggest mistake must have a great body of work to back up that claim.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 Books That Celebrate Diversity / Diverse Characters

Top Ten Tuesday is the brainchild of The Broke & the Bookish. Every Tuesday, we compile a list of our literary Top 10, and then add it to the blog hop.

This week is all about the Top 10 Books That Celebrate Diversity / Diverse Characters, whether they are culturally diverse, LGBGTQ+, disabled, or of colour.

The definition of “diverse” for the purpose of this post is that of the WNDB: We recognize all diverse experiences, including (but not limited to) LGBTQIA, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, and ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities.”

Top Ten Tuesday: The Last 10 Books To Come Into My Possession

Top Ten Tuesday is the brainchild of The Broke & the Bookish. Every Tuesday, we compile a list of our literary Top 10, and then add it to the blog hop.

This week is all about the Last 10 Books To Come Into Our Possession, by purchase, lending, gift or library loan.

Here are my 10 Books:

Free Advance Review Copy (eBook)

 

Gift / “Inherited” from Grandma

Signed Copy

 

Bought at fleamarket

 

Bought on Amazon

I’ve been emptying out my gran’s bookshelves as she is almost blind and gave me all her books, but I don’t have a list of those yet.

The one thing I always look for at fleamarkets is books. Last year, my Zöppkesmarkt haul included 40 books. I don’t think you could ever have too many.

I recently acquired more than these 10, but I don’t really keep track of the dates. The books above are definitely on my “recently added” shelf.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 Books I’ve Read So Far In 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a booktastic blog hop hosted by The Broke & the Bookish. This week, it’s all about the Top 10 Books We’ve Read In 2015.

I’m woefully behind on my 60 Books Challenge. My studies have taken up all my time, although that didn’t stop me from downloading a massive haul of about 50 free Kindle books in my lunch hour yesterday (they were just so tempting, being free and all).

As for books I’ve already read in 2015, I offer the following Top Ten (not in order of preference):
