TTT : One potato, two potato, three potato..


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.  This week’s topic is:

    Hahahaha!!🤣🤣🤣🤣 That title had me cracking up!! 🤣🤣🤣 Looovee this posts and your choices! Some of the best ones are in this list AND I TOO AM EXCITED FOR The Ninth House!! 😍😍😍😍 This will be my first series by Leigh Bardugo! This author’s books are sooo fucking famous that I felt weirdly nervous reading any! 🤣🤣 But I am going to now…I HAVE TO!

      Thank you. I’m really looking forward to Ninth House, In fact I hadn’t realised that Bardugo made it twice on my list.

    There’s no way I could have done 1-10 but I did manage to find 10 and only had to go back to 2015 to do it. I guess I never really realized how many books had numbers in the title.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Exactly, I had no idea I’d read so many books with number in the title. 😀

    This was a super fun week, I think. I was amazed how many books with numbers in them I’ve read. And we both chose January for #10😁

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – I bet January made a few lists for this theme.

    Nice list, and we match for #10!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I think a lot of people had No.10 as the same book – it was very good so it was expected.

    Of course with the number there was no other choice but The Two Towers! Or at least, no other choice for a Tolkien enthusiast… 😉

    Ten Thousand Doors has such a beautiful cover! Can’t wait to read it either. Love your Two Towers choice too. 🙂

    …I didn’t think of Blyton – she could almost carry half this week on her own, couldn’t she? 😀 Adventurous Four, Famous Five, Secret Seven – and was there a Six? I can’t remember 🙂

  8. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Fantastic list! Now I know why you didn’t use/remember One Word Kill, because Ready Player One is such a fab choice too 🙂

    Ooo well done on completing 1-10 in your choices – I didn’t manage that, but we do both have The Two Towers and The Three Musketeers on our lists. Also looks like Leigh Bardugo likes having numbers in their book titles. 🙂

    Nice list, also love that you went in order. 🙂 I have not read The Three Musketeers, can you believe it? I keep meaning to.
