Top Ten Top-Tens

Happy fifth birthday to Top Ten Tuesdays! I first did a TTT in November 2010, but TTT debuted in June 2010. In celebration, this week’s TTT is about our ten favourite Top Ten Tuesdays. So, here you go! Each time I will link to my post and also to the link-up on The Broke and the Bookish.

1. Top Ten Bookish Memories | My Post | TTT

I’m very proud of this one because I did it for a freebie on 10 July 2012, and then it was chosen as a topic for 5 February 2013. Also, I got a lot of interaction on this post and it made me happy.


2. Top Ten Minor Characters | My post | TTT

I felt that this really affected the way I read books because it taught me the importance of minor characters, and how much I identified with some of them.

3. Top Ten Bookish Pets | My Post

I did this for a freebie so there is no TTT link for it. I really enjoyed doing this one. I love pets! I want a baby dinosaur. Can you tell I recently watched Jurassic World?


4. Top Ten Quotes | My Post | TTT

This is a popular one that is often repeated, and when I don’t know what to do for a freebie, I always do quotes. I’ve just linked one here though.

5. Top Ten Beginnings/Endings of Books | My Post | TTT

This was so challenging, and I loved that! This was also a post where I REALLY enjoyed looking at everyone else’s posts. I added so many books to my TBR that day.

In another life I would have been an English and History teacher, so I loved writing this one and reading everybody else’s suggestions.

7. Top Ten Things on Our Reading Wishlist | My Post | TTT

Ten things we wish people would write about, basically. Again: so much fun!

africanmagic8. Top Ten Book Covers I’d Frame As Pieces Of Art | My Post | TTT

Three reasons I loved this: AWESOME PICTURES (I started planning for my future library); Cory Doctorow retweeted my link; I got crap tonnes of views this day (it’s not that important, but it was quite nice).

9. Ten Books That Feature Travelling In Some Way | My Post | TTT

Travel. You can’t get more exciting than that.


10. Ten Books I’d Recommend to X Person | My Post | TTT

Loved everyone’s contributions. It was fun. And I liked finding books for my chosen topic.


Well, that was a lot of clickbait, but The Broke and The Bookish gave permission 😛

    I love Minor Characters, so that’s a great one! I like you list, its great! Please fell free to read mine here: & Happy Summer Reading!

  3. Great list!! There way too many topics from the past five years to choose from for my post!! I had a difficult time narrowing down which ones made my TTT post for this week.

    Here’s a link to my TTT post for this week:

  4. Hi Megz…. Thank you thank you thank you for your generosity and insight. Your book reviews are wonderful.They make Mazlow’s pyramid a psychedelic prism.
    Have fun at my hospital, there are beautiful pockets of magic there.

      Thanks Yentl, what a sweet comment. I’m having fun… and some struggles in between. I’m sure you can relate!

  5. I’m trying to remember if I did the TTT topics on beginnings/endings and minor characters…most likely the former, but not so much the latter (though minor characters can be pretty awesome too! Love the graphic with the minions there, haha). Great list! So many great topics we covered 🙂

  6. Angelica says:

    Wow these are really fantastic lists and very unique 🙂

  7. Ooo… Top Ten Book Covers I’d Frame As Pieces Of Art sounds like so much fun! I haven’t been doing TTT posts for very long, so I just did my own thing this week. I’m so jealous of all the fun everyone seems to have had over the years. 🙂

    1. barefootmegz says:

      It was a lot of fun, really. It just makes you think a little further than just “favorite book covers” full stop. Anyway, welcome to TTT. The good thing ab out being new-ish is that you have a whole list of old topics to do on freebie weeks!

    Book covers are always full of so. much. win. XD I LOVE THAT! I think it’s super easy to compare cover loves and drool over gorgeous art. *happy sigh*
