Top Ten Biographies/Memoirs

Another lovely topic, the girls at The Broke and The Bookish requests this week our top ten books in X-genre. Which is fine for people who have a definite preference… but I kind of don’t. I know a lot of people who swoon for YA, dystopians, romance, historical novels or classics… but I kind ofContinue reading “Top Ten Biographies/Memoirs”

Top Ten Books Assigned a Theme Song by Moi!

In their weekly bookish meme, The Broke and the Bookish asks which books we would give a theme song, and which song, and why. This is definitely one of the harder topics for me. I love books and I love music, but I am terrible at remembering the names of books, authors, songs and artists.Continue reading “Top Ten Books Assigned a Theme Song by Moi!”

Book Review: Anna and the French Kiss

As a rule, I do not review non-medical books on this blog, unless it forms part of a Top Ten Tuesday. However, since my recent discovery of the myriad of book blogs, Goodreads and the ability to read while maintaining my schedule has led to me rather bravely attempting a bookish challenge, I have decidedContinue reading “Book Review: Anna and the French Kiss”

Top Ten Books I would save if…

This week, The Broke and the Bookish asks which books we would save if the house was being abducted by aliens, or on fire, or something similarly horrible. I’m a sentimental person, but I hate hoarding. So I do not, as a rule, own books that are simply reading books. All of the choices bareContinue reading “Top Ten Books I would save if…”

Book Review: The Brain That Changes Itself

Since my recent discovery of the myriad of book blogs, Goodreads and the ability to read while maintaining my schedule has led to me rather bravely attempting a bookish challenge, I have decided to blog about those books. For the category of Science and Natural History I read The Brain that Changes itself by Norman Doidge.Continue reading “Book Review: The Brain That Changes Itself”

Top Ten Books that broke my heart a little…

The anti-valentine this year, The Broke and the Bookish asks which books broke our hearts a little. I had to give this one quite a lot of thought. I am not a particularly romantic person. So, when I say it broke my heart, I mean it made me sad. WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD! DUE WARNING WILL BEContinue reading “Top Ten Books that broke my heart a little…”

Top Ten Books I would recommend to someone who doesn’t read…

This week’s meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish asks for the Top Ten Books you would recommend to someone who says they don’t like to read. I have quite a few of those in my life. Basically I’m choosing some of the best of the widest spectrum I can imagine, hoping that atContinue reading “Top Ten Books I would recommend to someone who doesn’t read…”

TTT: Freebie

It’s Freebie Week at The Broke and The Bookish, and I am notoriously bad with freebies. Considering I read most of my books from the library, I am also not very good at lists. Nevertheless, here are my Top Ten Books for Students, Professionals and Fanatics of the Health Sciences. These books (both fiction andContinue reading “TTT: Freebie”
